    I personally prefer a more realistic style. I've noticed in games, people tend to go for the crazy hairstyles, mainly the things they know would look ridiculous irl unless you were very confident in yourself. That makes sense though, if the world were less judgemental, I'd probably wear a crazy hairstyle from time to time.

    No preference, as long as the gameplay is what captivates the player. And sometimes the graphics isn't between anime-style or realistic, because you could have 8-bit graphics, cel-shaded graphics, or any other kind of graphics, and I think it also depends on whether the game is 2D or 3D. In a lot of 2D games, you won't fight a lot of realism, and that's generally fine with me.

    Anime style, because too much realism in game may distort your view in reality. Imagine in future when games have realism that surpass the reality itself, you may want to live in virtual life rather than your real life.

    I don't think realism in RPGs intend to distort reality; the main goal is to create appeal to some audiences. And in some cases, realism in RPGs aren't exactly like reality; they tend to exaggerate things that you wouldn't see in reality just to add emphasis (e.g. explosions in a video game are emphasized for dramatic effect, while they aren't as exciting in reality). The whole goal is never to distort the actual reality; I think VR headsets would mess your senses up even more.

    And you could technically say that realism in video games are "surreal"; it's more like a recreation of reality for entertainment purposes, not for a true imitation. You could think of it like watching a movie full of dramatic effects; the things that happen in movies will never fit reality. Likewise in video games, a character holding a 100 pound sword with one-hand doesn't match up with reality, because games are just creations; their goal is not to imitate reality, but to create a surreal appeal.
