Lots of times when a game pushes really hard for realistic graphics i feel it indeed does look realistic but also stale and boring.

To me its like plenty of things in cartoons/comics/animations looking cool in their natural setting but in real life it would look boring or stupid or even funny.

Im not against good graphics but i find life like graphics boring and makes the game less unique with no style. I like mario games, for example, but if they made the graphics life-like and realistic then it would look really stupid to me. (A grown man stomping a turtle to death?)

Agreed. It's better if they add some style like Mirror's Edge did.

Well, I wasn't stomping it, but pushing realistic graphics didn't stop me from enjoying killing tortoises in Far Cry 3.

I really felt the team did a great job on the wildlife animations. I feel cartoony or cell shaded graphics would have lessened my enjoyment.

It really depends on the game.

Like comic books or animation, it depends on the content of the story and the style. I like to keep things varied.

I suppose I could answer you with, "I do not want every game's art direction to strive for Heavy Rain/LA Noire style realism".
