Graphics are definitely not everything! Ya they might be shiney and give the game a visually realistic look in some cases. Gameplay is really everything! Most of my favorite games are classics and I love them because of the stories that they tell and ya the graphics aren't even close to realistic but who cares! It's about how it makes you feel! I can't play a game that has no story and only looks good. It would get boring quick. Some of the best Zelda games are the classics! A link to the Past to this day remains in my top three Zelda games and it definitely doesn't compare to todays games graphic wise but has amazing gameplay! I couldn't just have a game that's visually nice. It makes me sad that some gamers can't get past graphics.
