Evolution of Gaming : Graphics vs Gameplay Written by Tony James
If you are old enough to remember early days of computer gaming you know there were a lot of great games that were fun because of exceptional gameplay and not just graphics. Gaming started to become a little more popular in 90s once people started buying computers. In early 90s games like Maniac Mansion, X-com 1, and Civilization were extremely hot because of their addictive unique gameplay. Today gaming is mainstream and marketed towards a mass audience. In order to market to everyone, many games these days focus on graphics and special effects rather than unique gameplay. You see many games that seem to be carbon copies of each other with slightly different twists.
These days, a lot of games try to be as realistic as possible and have most textures and polygons jammed in to wow your eyes. In order to market to everyone, many games these days focus on graphics and special effects rather than unique gameplay. Although there is nothing wrong with a game with beautiful graphics, once novelty of graphics runs out, gameplay is what keeps you playing. You see many games that seem to be carbon copies of each other with slightly different twists. There are a few games like Halo 2 where developers obviously spent a lot of time fine tuning to make sure gameplay was as enjoyable as possible. With Halo 2, two things that give it an edge in my opinion is fact that movement of players is slower than most games and weapons are highly balanced. Also, rather than throwing tons of multiplayer maps at player, developers focused on making a limited number of quality maps.
