Graphics drives immersion.
Crytek have said a controversial statement where they believe graphics make up 60% of a game. I’m sure for some people graphics aren’t that big of a factor and prefer gameplay mechanics more.
“People say that graphics don’t matter, but play Crysis and tell me they don’t matter. It’s always been about graphics driving gameplay. Graphics, whether it’s lighting or shadows, puts you in a different emotional context and drives the immersion, and immersion is effectively the number one thing we can use to help you buy into the world,” Yerli told X360 Magazine.
“The better the graphics, the better the physics, the better the sound design, the better the technical assets and production values paired with the art direction, making things look spectacular and stylistic is 60% of the game.”
