Looks like my original topic got locked, sorry about that moderator, hopefully we'll try to be more civil here.

I just get so frusturated when people act like it's a crime if I only play games based on the graphics. It's not a bad thing, and really some people can't stand playing games that they can't even look at. What's even suckier in that situation is the games are probably really good, original and fun. But gamers like me have to miss out on them because graphics are our number one priority. It's really not fair....

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that I think both Western developers and Japanese ones should release versions of their games in everyone's prefererred art-style, that way everyone's happy.

When a thread is locked you're not supposed to start up a whole new thread on the exact same topic.  That sort of defeats the purpose.

Oh....I was hoping to make this one a more civil debate since I really think I got misunderstood and I wish people would try to see where I'm coming from, you know.

Hmm you say that it's sadly eh, does that mean you're starting to see where I'm coming from?? Or do you think this topic merits a debate??

Is there any way to turn this into a civil discussion :/ It's a shame I really think this is a worthwhile topic to talk about.

Every time I play an anime game, it makes me feel fabulous. I start lisping, dancing to techno, and think my pants aren't tight enough.

Anime characters dress like Disco Stu.

Okay.....lol I guess the snarking was slightly amusing at times. But anyways back on topic (don't want this to turn into another flame fest) Do you have any thoughts on my stance on the graphics/art-style subject????

Not a troll but would you like to contribute to this discussion. So what is your opinion, could you manage to play a game when it has good gameplay and a good story but crappy graphics or a art style you detest?? What are your views on gamers like me who value graphics first and foremost??

Just putting it out there, let's turn this discussion into something lively and worthwhile.

Thoren, you put a huge grin on my face. I needed that, thank you. :)

As for graphics, I play games with crappy graphics I hate all the time, they're retro. :P I love good graphics, especially artistic ones, but I don't think I could make my way through a game if the graphics are wonderful and the rest is bad/mediocre. Eternal Sonata proved that to me. In fact, one of my favourite games of all time has pretty meh graphics, but the rest of the game is so awesome it doesn't matter.

But yes, I do like pretty graphics. I like anything pretty, I think.

Yeah, it's a REALLY bad idea to start a new topic that's continuing a topic that got locked for misbehavior. I'll leave it open for now in case it somehow actually remains civil, but I'm not expecting that to last long.

When it comes to art styles I DO favor a more cartoony look, an umbrella both anime styles and stuff like Brutal Legend fall under, but I can like or at least appreciate a wide variety, and usually the most suitable one for a game IS picked; something like Demon's Souls can not have the same art style as a Tales game. It's a shame if you won't try a game due to its visual style not fitting a narrow preference, it's the kind of hurdle you need to just blow off and get past, especially because you just might appreciate the variety once you've taken the time to go through the games.

Not that there aren't limits, but those usually end up being more technical in nature and the kind of thing that can actually cause physical pain.
