This is about as real as it gets, take a look at these amazing CGI images created by just one guy.
Looks better then golumn or anything I have seen in the movies.
Hes made one that looks like someone from kingdom of heaven and another of a female night elf for WoW. Hard to believe they are not real people, its hard to find any flaws.

Yeah I found the link to these on Digg, title was "What computer games could look like in 10 years time"
Could be less though, 5 years maybe.

There's something about that picture that scares me. I think it's the blankness of the eyes.

One can hope. I can just imagine how much more sexual Final Fantasy XV will look.

Yeah, really. Some of the women (oh, who am I kidding, all of them) in those games have some pretty impossible proportions. Damn lonely Japanese.

They could probably do it now, but like the video game makers care about the quality, aslong as it sells and they make money they don't care.

Just look at FFXII, what a big let down compared to every other FF game.

I must say those do look good, but there's something about the eyes. I don't know what it is, but they just look a bit... cold to me. Dunno why.

Definitely amazing CG. That's the kind of stuff I'm getting in to, but it's obviously going to be many years before I get to any point like that.

I think this one's better.

Somehow I knew just by looking that it was done in Mental Ray. Really nice. The really hard part is animating faces realistically though.

Or, maybe its the fact that they look so realistic.
The future of video games is going to be pretty crazy.

Is that CGI? If I saw that before reading, I would believe to be a photo!

Oh joy.
Uncanny Valley strikes again.

What is it with people where you all think "realism" = better?

Sure it's amazing, that they can put that much detail into a render, but why would you want to play a game full of such creepy zombie people? Imagine how LONG it will take to make these games once graphics get to this point.

This is NOT a good thing.

Of course it seems creepy now because with computer games today people are probably used to the whole anime style( not in all games ), but you look at how far games have come in the last 15 years. People would probably say back then it is creepy to see the realism in the computer games today.
And yeah I was thinking that this would be be way too time consuming as well to animate characters as detailed as these, theres so much detail in the skin it would be very difficult to move it realistically.
But like I said, you see how far games have come, you never know where it could be in another 10-15 years :)
