I like this poll.

Consoles play a zero sum game, while the PC gives you both of the above. Well played.

Poll's pretty lulz. Should make for some fun rustling.

LOL I love to read your polls. They are always entertaining. Makes me not want to pick an answer but gameplay over graphics any day. How xbox one, a console, has better gameplay is obviously something you only see. Your threads are so bad that it's hilarious.

I think both are relevant.

Game play>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>graphics any day of the forever.

Haha. Awesome poll.

For me, we have reached a point where games are plenty capable of achieving both. Hell, it reached that point for me on PS3 and 360.

Resolution and indies are most important this gen.

What a shit poll. Really bothers you that your choice doesn't have the best graphics doesn't it?

85% gameplay, 10% art style, 5% details

Big fucking 0% for res

Both are important . If developers have limited budget or time and they can focus only on one , then gameplay should always be preferred . But graphics are important too , this is 2014 after all .

I Chose Option C . (Almost voted for Option B)

Graphics obviously. Lol at playing games for gameplay.

lol at poll

#17 Posted by speedfreak48t5p (9911 posts) -

Resolution and frame-rate. 900p graphics and a frame rate under 60 are unplayable and ruin games.

I think we would all be outside right now playing with a stick if it wasn't for graphics. Both are important.

#20 Edited by pyro1245 (1079 posts) -

gameplay should be the driving factor, however why not make it look awesome too? Especially if you have the resources of a large dev company.

#21 Posted by Ballroompirate (23864 posts) -

Both are pretty important

#22 Edited by NoirLamia777 (2325 posts) -

Gameplay anyday.

#23 Posted by misterpmedia (4610 posts) -

Hopefully the mods will make swift movement on this dire troll thread lol. Poll options are artificially skewed so there's no point for it.

gameplay is subjetive

graphics are subjective

both are complementary because you can't play a game without graphics nor play graphics without gameplay. Games have story, music and performance and a whole bunch of other things that make video games be video games and the experience more enjoyable like for example: level design, physics, AI, pace, etc. Just gameplay isn't enough to achieve anything. This debate has always been stupid.

Love the hypocrisy in this thread. Same cows that blew up threads like the "UC4 looks better than anything on PC" thread are now telling us that graphics don't matter

You seem a bit upset dude.....relax...it's just SW. Def nothing to get worked up about.

#27 Posted by Roler42 (898 posts) -

I love me some gorgeous graphics, but if they don't have the gameplay to compliment them then they are completely useless, gameplay will always take a priority for me, the graphics will always take the backseat

#28 Posted by Boggle_Dragon (125 posts) -

Why not both for all systems? Are you saying the Xbox can't have good graphics TC?

#29 Posted by nini200 (10626 posts) -

Graphics are a part of the gameplay since they enhance the experience of the game you're playing.

#30 Posted by TrappedInABox91 (1141 posts) -

Your're not a gamer If you put graphics before gameplay.

Congrats! you went FR.

Extremely clever poll.

A good reflection of the current System Wars fanboy trend.

Gameplay is obviously the most important factor in any game.

In fact it`s the reason nothing but Nintendo games seem to satisfy my appetite. Sure, they seem to be pandering to the casual crowd lately, but when Nintendo is on their A game, nothing and i mean NOTHING at all compares. People lose their shit over games like Skyrim, GTA, Dark Souls blah blah blah, but none of it comes close because the gameplay just seems clunky, and stiff. The stiffness, oh my god. But man oh man, does Mario ever have swag. He moves like nothing else i tell ya.

hahaha that's a great poll :P

#37 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (16679 posts) -

Gameplay obviously, but you need to strike a balance.

#38 Posted by LJS9502_basic (152926 posts) -

Anyway to answer the question gameplay is more important but within a generation the graphics should be relatively equal. If not...I go with the better graphics.

#47 Posted by PS4hasNOgames (2501 posts) -

why is gameplay paired with x1 and wii u? like they are doing something different than ps4 except having shitty hardware.

#48 Posted by Krelian-co (13213 posts) -

pc and ps4 have both so thats why i have them

#49 Posted by CyberLips (1827 posts) -

Gameplay always comes first but you can't invest money on a next gen console or a good PC without expecting good graphics.
