It depends on what the gamer likes. That is why there isn't just 1 game. There are a bunch of games for every gamer.

I think that we will always see artists strive to get as close to real as possible, it's a wide scope from people who like realism the most to people who like to get as far from realism the most...Even a mix of sci-fi realistic looking art.

Different styles in different games are always good, diverse choices, are always a good thing. With the new gen around the corner I think even more realism will be sought in characters and environments.

I personally want to see realistic toons, caricatures come to life, creations that you just don't see walking around in everyday life... Worlds that are quirky and stylish, creative and unique to our World, something fresh and give us an escape from the norm...

It doesn't matter to me if they look real or not.

Should be renamed: "Are gamers becoming too picky?"

How "real" a game is only matters in certain genres. Sims, for example, need to be as real as possible. They can never be too real.

Whether or not a game is "too real" or "not real enough," though, ultimately winds up being the impression of each individual.

Me? It's a case-by-case basis. I don't want realism in my fantasy RPGs, for example. Not too much, anyway. But I definitely want realism in my sim racers.

That's just me, though.

Quite a broad question there...
