Do we need a break from hardcore realism, for the sake of some old fashioned, good ol' fun type games? Better yet, can we get a healthy dose of both?

I like a mix of both, TF2 anyone?

Not on Super Mario Galaxy it doesn't. It's your best friend. :)

Art direction is the big thing here for achieving "fantasy" visuals. games are getting more advanced all the time and there is nothing wrong with physics or better graphics. The biggest things keeping us from totally getting sucked into the "reality" of the games are lighting and physics/animation. High def is nice but 480i tv shows still look real to me so resolution isnt the problem. If the lighting is perfect in a scene and everything moves naturally it would make a more immersive game if it was mario or gears of war.
