I hate when people make this argument and post pictures of older games (not talking about Minecraft here). It's like, do you guys not realize those graphics were top notch for the time? Also the analogy is stupid. Playing video games with bad graphics is more like watching porn with really ugly "actors."

I await your red thumbs.

It's more like frosting on the cake. Tastes good if it's complementing something, but icing by itself isn't that good.

I watch Hentai because it usually has an interesting plot.
American porn is boring to me.

Preparing for red thumbs.   
On older games for the NES, SNES, N64, etc... I don't give a fuck about the graphics.. Those are the best graphics available for the time period they were made. I'll still play all the old Mario games and all the old Zelda games and the graphics wont bother me. But if a game were released tomorrow that had the graphics of an old SNES game it would bug me. Video games should be played for the story, but the quality of the graphics make it more appealing to the eye. Why can't we just say that we play video games for both story and graphics because I know thats why I play them. Perfect example is the Zelda series. My favorite Zelda game of all time is Majora's Mask. It had good graphics for the time it game out but compared to the more recent zelda games its blocky and grainy. The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess is my second favorite Zelda game. Because the graphic style fit the story. They made it look dark and depressing and thats how the story was. In my opinion having a good story with bad graphics is pointless, and having good graphics with a bad story is pointless. Both of the elements must blend to make a good game. If a video game is going to be made make it the best it can be with a good story and good graphics.

I believe it's more like watching porn for the resolution of the image or video.

People who say graphics dont matter are either full of shit or shouldnt share their opinions about video games. Video games (as the name implies) is a visual medium thus the visuals do matter, that doesnt mean they need to be realistic but they do need to communicate effectively to its audience. I will give you two parallel examples lets say you buy a harry potter book, does the type face matter? Well normally one would say no but if it was too small to read, or in a font that was so hard to read that it made the book a chore to try and read you have distroyed your content through the means. If you then buy that same harry potter book this time as an audio book, but the volume was so quiet that you couldnt hear it normally and the only time you could hear it was to ramp it up so loud that you were getting super loud static, you will have a missurable time with that audio book.

TL;DR version Graphics do matter because they are one of only a few ways that the medium of video games communicates to its audience. People confuse this with REALISM which you do not need. Graphics are very important, realism is not.

I don't know about everyone else. I find Minecraft's graphic style very pleasing on the eyes sometimes.

This is pretentious gamer elitism at it's finest.

A game with horrible graphics versus games with stylized/fitting graphics are two very different things. You can play an ugly 8-bit, 32-bit or fully 3D game and not feel immersed because they distract you. But if a stylized game that doesn't have cutting edge "Battlefield 3" graphics can still perform better than most mass marketed games because they fit the style of the game and gameplay.

Fuck you, OP, ugly games are shit to play. Go play the first ET or Bubsy 3D and tell me that graphics don't matter.

Play games for the story, watch porn for the graphics.

I like high-quality graphics because it's an indicator of how much effort was put into making the game and a testament to the capabilities of new technology. And considering I might pay $300 for a new console and $60 for a new game, I want the technology to wow me.

That isn't to say the quality of graphics is directly proportional to how fun the game is. But it certainly helps.
