I'm aware of that. I suppose what I am most curious about is how real either are.It seems to me that you are mixing "immersion" and "realism". Those are different things. Immersion is subjective and has to do with human feelings and emotions, realism is objective and has to do with cold rows and lines of figures. Its like Art against Science. I think both are good, but they are not about the same thing and have their own definition of the "Truth".
Immersion is great. Seems those are nailed down by both parties
