Games Don't Need to be Realistic to be Fun

gamrReview's Zach Frimpong: "Games allow you to tear through enemies or present challenges to make you feel fulfilled. They allow you to escape from the real world and feel like you actually have an impact on a virtual world. They have the ability to create a feeling of adventure when you're traversing unknown worlds, and who cares if it isn't realistic as long as you're having fun? Games are about having fun, and as long as that core element of a game resonates throughout the experience, it's fine by me."

Some folks from the "PC Master Race" says otherwise when there is Crysis envolved.

Now serious, I totally agree with the author. Look at Rayman Legends or Rayman Origins i.e. (just to mention two games). It's a hell of a fun, and it's almost entirely 2D graphics. I think realism is tied to the type of game and the target the developer is aiming for. For some games, it's very desirable. For others, not at all. Also, there are various types of realism (visual, physics, logical, etc).

But games are always about fun. IMHO.
