Do you think the MSFS graphics are better than the regular flight sim software?
If by regular you mean actual Level D graphics then for the most part yes. The real level D/C 737 sims I flew had very disappointing graphics. I'd be generous to say they're at FS2000 standards I'll put it that way, and these sims were months old at the time.
There are extremely advanced graphics out there for full motion sims that put MSFS to shame but fact of the matter is they are extremely expensive, and quite frankly, nobody uses them because as you're constantly flying within clouds or fog (for IFR training purposes). I'll put it this way, when I did my 737 initial course I logged 26 hours in full motion sims, of which 2 hours at most actually involved seeing anything but clouds or fog, we pretty much flew with a gray screen the whole time.
