Graphics vs Gameplay

Most of the gamers I know say that graphics don’t influence at all while they play. They say it’s all about skill and imagination, that “graphics just enhance the experience a bit”. I’m pretty sure that in the videogaming industry, there are 2 different sections (at least) that separate the graphics work from programming but in the end they are still part of the same team, so is gameplay actually a consecuence of graphics?

I don't believe a word of it, I remember what the graphics used to be like on my ATARI and ZX Spectrum many years ago, believe me my XBOX 360 games are GREATLY enhanced by graphics compared to back then? Graphics make a game in my opinion, as long as the game plot is good that is. On the flip side a decent game can be ruined by bad graphics IMHO.

If a game looks beautiful but the gameplay sucks, whats the point, rent a movie.

I'm a PC gamer and don't like consoles at all.

Saying that, I bought my son a Wii a few weeks back and the innovation on that wee console is amazing. The graphics are below par compared to a high end PC or PS3 /360 but I think the Wii is a case in point where gameplay is above the graphical look.
