Photorealistic Graphics are Holding Back Gaming

Scott from The Controller Online writes: "I’ve been thinking about the issue of photo-realism in game visuals versus budget and innovation, for a while but I hadn’t really been able to think of a way to present the argument until now. I mean, it’s going to seem foolish to suggest that advances in graphical technology could be bad for the video game industry. It’s not the fantastic visuals of a game like L.A Noire that I’m railing against, it’s the idea that we should be relying on them as the norm that worries me." (Beyond: Two Souls, Journey, L.A. Noire, PS3, Xbox 360)

could not careless about photorealistic graphics, just give me great game play with a deep compelling story/characters and I am a happy camper.
