With games today they’re really stepping up their game when it comes to the way it looks like or the gameplay but there some games that either have one or the other and sometimes games don’t have good gameplay and graphics like Sonic Boom for the Wii U
now I know that the Wii U doesn’t have the capability to pull off stunning graphics like the PS4 and the Xbone ( Xbox One).
But when you see a game like Wind Waker HD for the Wii U and how amazing that looks compared to Sonic Boom is baffling and not to mention the fact that SEGA takes everything that you know about sonic games and throws them out the window because the gameplay for this is game is so busted it makes Sonic 06′ another very bad Sonic game look like a masterpiece. I can go on for hours explaining why this game sucks but back to the matter at hand on which do I prefer Gameplay or Graphics, its nice to have both but I have to pick gameplay.
The reason why I pick gameplay over graphics is for 3 reasons; the first reason why is because of the simple reason that I’m buying a game for how it plays not how it looks, the second reason is that a game can have the best graphics but the gameplay is really poor a good example is The Order 1886.
Now this game had impressive graphics but that was its major flaw because the makers of the game really focus heavy on the way it looked like and forgot all about the gameplay because there was hardly any gameplay and most of the gameplay moments you were either walking around or shooting and the whole game was only 6 hours long.
The third reason why I rather have gameplay over graphics is that no matter what the game looks like if the gameplay is solid I’m sold and a very good example of a game that looks old but the gameplay is really good is Shovel Knight
because it really takes you back to the good old NES and SNES days where all games was only 8 bit and 16 bit but the gameplay was solid enough for you to keep coming back for more and I’m pretty sure that this game’s budget wasn’t as big as The Order 1886 budget but Shovel Knight was 6 hours long.
