Crytek CEO says graphics have always driven gameplay

, | Games


Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli is famously outspoken about the games his company makes and the direction he believes the industry is headed. Yerli spoke to X360 Magazine and said that graphics are “60% of the game.”

“People say that graphics don’t matter,” says Yerli, “but play Crysis and tell me they don’t matter. It’s always been about graphics driving gameplay.”

Yerli told Gamasutra in March that he blamed Crysis 3’s less than enthusiatic reception on “console fatigue” and expectations based on the first Crysis game.
