I'd rather a developer focus on game play over graphics. Shipping out a game with good mechanics but poor graphics says how much the developer cares about the actual gameplay and longevity of the game, rather than the cosmetic novelty which will wear off after around 2 hours play time.
Graphics are a important part of gameplay.
What do you mean by "worst graphics"?
Take World of Warcraft and Skyrim for instance. 1 game has graphics that are geared towards realism (skyrim) and 1 game has graphics that are cartoonish (wow), however it's much easier to walk by an item that you should have picked up in Skyrim than it is in World of Warcraft so what defines better graphics? In reality graphics are part of game mechanics and realism is a type of graphics whether one is better than the other depends on what you're asking from the game design.
In this day and age there is no reason a game can't have sharp graphics and solid mechanics because both have a equal part in making a game fun to play.
