360's not good enough for AAA titles anymore, XBLA flourishing.

The specs aren't high enough to make a decent AAA game anymore, developers try to push the limits and fail.

The XBLA games rarely try to maximize graphics and focus on game play.

You mean when it comes to games, it's more important to be fun than to look pretty?

BRILLIANT!

I agree for the most part with this....although there are the exceptions where the way the environment is portrayed goes a long way in telling the story & improving the gameplay.

So disk based games can't keep up with the outdated hardware and growing expectations for each new game to be bigger and better then it's predecessors, and Xbox Arcade titles limited to space constraints focus more on gameplay then fluffed up graphics?

pains me when gamers will settle for half of the pie than require the whole thing... all of these graphics vs. gameplay arguments are stupid

gameplay is like the skeleton of a game, graphics are the flesh

the better she plays, the better she looks, and the better she looks, the better she plays

Pretty much. But that goes without saying a lot of the time. The way I look at it, a game just has to do something well.
