"If you're a graphics whore ..."
no, because the graphics would still need to be of a high quality for it to work and engage a player.
They are because there are two people here who say they are engaged by it
Good Art is subjective
I pointed out that how people perceive graphics is subjective, which means you have no place for talking on their behalf on what they define as good graphics
I have not changed anything, a graphics whore is NOT someone who holds games to the be best graphics available, its someone who is able to play a game based on nothing more than the visual impact it has on them
None of those entries or people here are telling you they are solely motivated by the best possible graphics.
Not everyone will play a game based on nothing but the quality of the graphics alone.
To you no
