As true as it may be, despite Nintendo's recent marginal push with the Wii U, it's not something any Nintendo fan really wants to hear. Many gamers feel graphics contribute little, if anything, to the overall gameplay experience, and that it wouldn't matter how vivid and realistic Mario's overalls are, if the game doesn't "feel" right, it's going to flop. But you've got entire camps of people who think graphics are what it's all about. Who's right? There's never going to be one true answer, but this is never something you want to express to someone who loves Nintendo as much as their firstborn child.
