I sense priorities has gone wonky somewhere.
I kinda agree, except...

Well Falcon's graphics are barf.

But beyond that, in DCS we have a spotting problem, which is heavily related to graphics realism. Some of this is down to, say, the complete lack of a thermal layer, so we dont really have functional IR sensors. But the biggest issue is just the difficulty of spotting a tank sitting in a grass field, even with a targetting pod from 2nm an 5kft.

So to fix this, you improve the graphics engine. Its a no-brainer that this brings with it higher fidelity graphics.

And when realism is the game, there is little point in skimping on visual realism.
