Silly Questions > Very Silly Games > What are "Zero Graphics Games"?

There is a lot of emphasis today on the graphics in games. Every new console model is sold on the promise of better, faster and more realistic pictures. However, there are also lots of games out there which have no graphics at all. Anyone who has played "Simon Says" or "Pass the Parcel" has enjoyed a game which has no pictures, but is still great fun.

Some Very Silly Games have zero graphics, instead they use other ways to get good gameplay, including sound and gamepad vibration. From a game designer's perspective, using these features to make fun gameplay is all part of the challenge.
