me and my little had an argument over this regarding whether realism should exist, even if it means poor balancing in a game
If you want to reply to me, give me a PM, otherwise I'll most likely miss it.
this is a serious signature. I really do have a high chance of missing a reply

If it severely affects the fun factor then no. Just look at GTA IV.

I like the characters to look real, not somethings in gameplay. Meaning, I suffer from a disorder, I don't like war movies or realistic war shooters. Those types of things, so yes and no, I suppose.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.

It depends on whether or not it fits the creator's vision. Realism should never be added for the sake of realism. That goes for any art style.

Depends on the game but in general no. I play games for mind opening experiences....realism is just boring 9/10 times.

If it's done right, sure. If it tries so hard to be 'realistic' that it ruins the game then no.

Just depends on the type of game.

Depends on the game, but I generally prefer graphics specifically veer towards more realistic and darker rather than less realistic and lighter. Unless it's a mascot platformer or JSR. Mechanics? It depends on implementation. In theory I do want a single bullet fired at a specific part of the body (for example) to cause damage to that specific part of the body, and to impede you realistically. In theory I think hunger, sleep, etc should factor into a game like Elders Scrolls or GTA. But in theory doesn't always work out well.
