* Down with photorealism?

The traditional time is here - time to make fun of photorealism once more as we wait for the next generation of machines and the rush of fall games:

In what appears to be a fit of turnabout, gamers often murmur "Of course, it's all about gameplay" when graphics blunder oafishly into the conversation. Well of course, interactivity is more fundamental to the medium than most if not all other parts of it. We'll always stand by gameplay: but it's graphics that will be handcuffing us to the bed during our next "business trip".
Graphics pull people to buy the game, gameplay holds them in.

I've taken more than my share of games to Gamestop because the gameplay just doesn't hold up.
