I like this poll.

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

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

Gameplay obviously, but you need to strike a balance.

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.

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