Default Re: Stop calling everything photorealistic!

I'm going to have to call BS on this one. Many modern games use real photos for textures, Max Payne, STALKER, etc. Granted the resolution is not as high as real world, but it is photo-realistic. Take a look at some flight sims, namely IL2 and LOMAC. Mortal Kombat is another good example. That game is 10 years old, the characters are 2 dimensional, yet photo-realistic.
