1: Chronicon
2: realm of the mad god
3: Terraria
4: Starbound
5: Minecraft
6: hyper light drifter
7: YS Series
8: secrets of grindea


so very many games made in modern time
that has proven that graphics is not the main selling points of games

it is gameplay that is the determining factor

To be fair some of those on the list have amazing graphics imo like hyper light drifter. it's just really well done pixel graphics, but all fits together like a glove and has a really nice style overall.

I don't know if you're trolling or legitimately haven't heard of those games, they're all very well known. But for the sake of giving you the benefit of the doubt.. definitely look into them. Hyper Light Drifter one of the best games to have come out imo. Terraria although looks a bit childish definitely isn't and have spent hundreds of hours in there.

And right on the ball there liftingnerd, the major point here is just fitting graphics within a single style that create an atmosphere is what make something been seen as having good graphics.

Also Stardew Valley and on that subject Chucklefish has got another game under wraps that's codenamed Spellbound for now which I am desperately but patiently waiting for.

Those are some good games there.. You know what they all have thats the KEY point of them all? Lore and content..

Actually especially Starbound which had a terrible release a lot of people complained and still do on the extreme lack of content and gameplay as opposed to its rival Terraria. Nobody complains about the graphics though, which I think is liftingnerd's point ultimately.

But it being 2017.. ALOT or a MAJORITY of people prefer looks because they are all building these crazy rigs.

Graphics make up for lack of play.. lack of graphics is filled with content..
