Title: Graphics in Video Games.


VG_Addict - July 27, 2008 06:11 PM (GMT)
Wanna know what's pissing me off today? It's PEOPLE WHO ONLY CARE ABOUT A GAME'S GRAPHICS!!!!! Seriously, all people seem to care about nowadays is graphics! Newsflash, people: JUST BECAUSE A GAME HAS GOOD GRAPHICS DOESN'T AUTOMATICALLY MAKE IT GOOD!! Whatever happened to the days when the most important thing in a video game was gameplay? Am I the only one who hates this about modern gamers?

Leo Sanders - July 27, 2008 06:19 PM (GMT)
I'm with ya on this one. This is why I don't like Brawl YAY lets make Mario real and have slow gameplay so Melee can be better. We really need to focus on Gameplay more then anything. Mega Man 9 is gonna be 2d and Agvn said its great.

If I didn't even slightly agree with the creator of this topic, I wouldn't have been a nintendo fanboy for this long.

I agree 120%. The playstation fanboys out there are ridiculous idiots who can't comprehend the indisputable prestige and history of Nintendo!

If you are with me, you will spread this message and stop Nintendo from being hated!

I like graphics. I have to understand whats going on, and graphics help with that. There are good PS games. Same with Xbox. We need you to stop hating too.

But most importantly, we need Nintendo to be recognized for their efforts and achievements.

To me, comparing the characters/history of Sony to Nintendo is like comparing Catcher in the Rye to The Illiad or the Odyssey.

You can whine and bitch all you want, Sony and Microsoft fanboys. You know that deep down within yourself, I'm right.


I'm sorry, neither Sony NOR Microsoft can even come CLOSE to matching the years of experience Nintendo has. Nintendo's been making games for more than 2 decades, LONG before Sony or Microsoft entered the gaming industry.

I LIKE NINTENDO! I'm just saying, you can give the PS and Xbox a little respect for standing along with the great nintendo for so long. have you two played the mainstream video games on those systems?

I'm not dissing Sony or Microsoft, I'm just saying Nintendo has BY FAR more experience. And no, I don't have a PS3 or Xbox 360. And by the way the fanboys are behaving, I'll probably never get one.

The only attractive thing about the PS2 is that they have half of Capcom/Snk's games made in the world.

VG_Addict is right, Nintendo is to Sony as Superman is to DBZ.

I mean HA! Kratos and Mc beating Samus and Sonic and the rest of the chars? That's about as logical as pikachu even denting Arceus outside the games.

when it comes to the fanboys, the microsoft is only slightly above sony making them the lesser of two evils.

It's not the power of the games, it's the quality. The civilation games have never been released to a nintendo console. same with KOTOR.

does it reall matter whether its nintendo or ps or x box there just video games. there basically the same with the same games.

Correct.

I mean, come on pitting all characters of each companies against each other?

Now that's just pushing it, crossing the line, and asking for it.

And the people who don't like Nintendo because their games don't have violence in them need to shut the **** up. Did it ever occur to you that some people actually ENJOY games that don't have blood flying everywhere? Obviously it hasn't, because then you wouldn't have made such an idiotic statement and sounded like a dumbass.

Phalanx - July 27, 2008 09:16 PM (GMT)
I know how Superman fanboys must have felt to DBZ fanboys.

anyways, nothing tops the 16-bit age, especially not the SNES.

Were you agreeing with me on the people who hate Nintendo for stupid reasons or the little rant about people who hate Nintendo because they don't have violence?

hellbentnow - July 28, 2008 01:55 AM (GMT)
I love Nintendo, the graphic's may not be the best but I stuck with nintendo, with the N64, Gameboy Color, Gamecube, Gamboy advance Sp, Gamecube, Ds Lite and now the Wii. I will not turn away from Nintendo, I have daily arguments with a Microsoft fanboy and a Sony fangirl. They always got me with the sales but I argued my best saying Nintendo made the best games, much more fun than any of Sony's or Microsoft's.

:unsure: For some reason my ranting is becoming much more frequent... :unsure:

My favourite game would be Donkey Kong 64 nintendo's first attempt at 3D.

Leo Sanders - July 28, 2008 01:59 AM (GMT)
Now I will make an exception for Samus. However Sonic would be owned by Kratos. So Nintendo has been around longer however all it is now is dried up and only wanting are money. Brawl was a crappy game with washed up old has beens.

Microsoft I say is the best everything you want in a game is on Microsoft.
Sony ehh too expensive...

I need a game to have good graphics but the gameplay should be as good or beter,along with downloadable content and the other little things that make a game sparkle.

Leo Sanders - July 28, 2008 05:27 AM (GMT)
That is another thing mose games are not multiplayer anymore you have to go online which is stupid. I will praise Nintendo for that one.

:angry: :angry:

NEWSFLASH! Microsoft makes Windows! Virtually EVERY game in the entire f-ing universe can be ported into Windows! And I bet that most of you use Windows. Talk about gameplay, graphics, sound, all consoles fall flat to the sheer might of the PC.

And also, 90% of the gaming population doesn't give a fuk about graphics! Why do you think games like Final Fantasy were 2-D all the way until FFVII, when they could have made the graphics as they were from the very beginning?

But like I said, Sony STILL has what's more important, better games. I know about Nintendo's history and prestige, and I know how to give that credit (Hello, I was a Celtics fan even when they sucked beyond comprehension) but I was born into a world that played GTA and Call of Duty. Maybe if you actually PLAYED God of War, or HALO, then you might see that it's just as exciting as a Super Smash Bro. or a Mario Kart.

Well I guess I've grew up in the 90's more than I have ever had in the new millenium. I guess that's just me. In fact, I'm just more affected by Nintendo than most other video game companies in the world.

I gotta appreciate Wii porting Okami from PS2 to their console.

Canus Minoris - August 7, 2008 03:27 PM (GMT)
I agree. Actually I couldn't possibly care less about a game's graphics. If the gameplay is good, then who gives a rip?

SilverSurfer092 - August 8, 2008 12:29 AM (GMT)
Graphics don't play a huge part, but they are nice. But all you fanboys really need to shut up. It's dumb. It's not about the "NINTENDO IS BETTER THAN MICROSOFT AND SONY!!!" It's about the "MARIO KART IS BETTER THAN [enter random Microsoft/Sony racing game]" or the "CALL OF DUTY 4 IS BETTER THAN [enter random Nintendo fps]".

Get over the differences and play the damn games. Jesus Christ, you guys are winy.
