"The Crytek answer, that's bullshit". I've been waiting so long for a developer to come out and say that. Thank you.

graphics are just art, there's realistic looking art and the other stuff

I wish I had 67% of the charm of these two guys.

The game looks just like something I might really like.

I'm all for playability over graphics, but this looks boring.

@obsequies I can't agree with that. In games the graphics must be functional first and foremost. Everything else is a bonus.

@Saketume @obsequies but graphics are art..its a fact. weather the graphics are implemented in a certain way or not is irrelevant. Structure and gameplay mechanics are the root but without art its only metaphysics. Sorry I wasn't very clear with what I was saying. There can defeneetaly be art/graphics for games that arent implemented well with a game but no matter what or how well graphics look its just art. I never meant artistic graphics are first...I meant all graphics are art no matter what. Even pong's paddles which are probably the most functional graphics ever.

@obsequies I never argued that it's not art.

You, however said it's JUST art.

I'm saying that in games it's firstly a function.

Anyway I don't want to argue with you. You seem sensible.
