Code is the hardest part, that's why there are lots of graphics artists and so few coders, maybe 20 to 1 or more. Even people that don't know how to draw or don't know principles of pixel art can have graphics by converting existing artwork, same does not happen with code.
Then on the PC world nowadays with programs like Fusion, Game maker etc there is little need for programming to make a game so everyone is focused on having good graphics for their games.
Graphics is the one thing everyone can evaluate but you cannot evaluate the code because you cannot see it, or even if you could it wouldn't make any sense if you don't know to code.
