Topic. What visual factors are lumped into the category of graphics for you?

For me, it's a combination of resolution and art style. Does the game look good? For me, Super Metroid and Metroid Zero Mission have far better graphics than Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. Although a good game, Spirit Tracks manages to look pretty ugly with it's low poly models and art style honestly doesn't come off as appealing.

Meanwhile, Metroid Zero Mission still looks great to this day on inferior hardware. The comic book artstyle was perfect for metroid (and I'd really like to see them use it again) and the game hasn't aged badly at all. If anything, it's made the first metroid game look worse by comparison.

For more modern games, I would say that Super Mario Galaxy has better graphics than Call of Duty: Black Ops on any platform.

Graphics is anything visible onscreen.
With Kinect you are the tool, Microsoft's tool. Now dance puppet, dance!

Just about everything. From the technical portion of resolution, pixels and textures, to the more abstract visual atmosphere and presentation of a game.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

If it is pleasing to the eyes, then the amount of power put towards graphic output doesn't really matter.

The first Black Ops game doesn't even run in native HD. It's like 544p (Vita resolution) but stretched out to fit a wider screen.

But he's right. I love CoD, but Black Ops looked like garbage. Nothing annoys me more than buying a game that isn't in HD for an HD system...
