It's CDPR, we all knew the story and gameplay would be good. But graphics go hand-in-hand with immersion just as much as story does if you want to be fully immersed in a games world. That was never in question with the older trailers.I still think that the game is stunning. I will play it for the story anyway so this is not really a problem for me. This game will be still revolutionary if not because of the visuals then it will be the storytelling and the quests, and in an RPG should be the most important thing.
It's all about deepening the level of immersion and amazing visuals is a part of that, the developers stated as much themselves in older footage. Claiming you will play it for story alone, to me, is the same thing as saying you're giving up on the visuals.
What's the damn point then.
