You would be lying if you said you dont care about graphics.The question is how much do you care about them?
I say the graphics are important because they give you good first impressions and get you more immersed in the game. Of course, gameplay is still more important than the graphics. Whoever says that very old games like PS1 games have crappy graphics, they clearly dont understand that is as far as the developers can push their games at the time, that is what the developers can work with at the time. Most of my favorite games are on PS1 too. Just because technology is improving doesnt mean video games must follow. But if nobody cares about graphics, we would still be playing 8-bit games today. This is just my opinion, everybody has their own taste in graphics. Like my friend, he's too strict on graphics that PS2 game graphics aren't even to his standards.(Kinda ironic since he was born in the PS2 era)
Id say alot.. if this ends up in a console war well we shall meet in MLP forums.. anyways every game I have on my pc has to have any enb on it. Coz I spend a lot of time searching about the game rather than actually playing it. XD I just love to play with the settings the devs give. Also I always keep my games over the 30 fps mark. U all know why. TL; DR Performance beats graphics. While, graphics can sometimes well beat performance.
I don't care much either. We live in a world where sadly people put too much emphasis on image/graphics. Both are transient as they can't pass the test of time. Many times people realize this only when they or their favorite persons get old. Or gaming wise, they realize it only when a game which was mostly about great graphics becomes old. There are more important things in life, because these do pass the test of time. One of these things is quality. Look at your nice old grandpas/grandmas if you have any nice living grandpas/grandmas or if you had any and you met them (like me). Their appearance changed, it hasn't passed the test of time. But their personality has passed it. Or gaming wise, look at your old favorite games. Crap graphics nowadays, but you still like them because their key features will always be there.
Quality over both quantity and graphics/image. Image and graphics are nothing more than lies and illusions once they are put in front of the mighty time.
