In cgi, what you spend your time doing is rendering limitations to make it look more "real". Lens flare, dirt, vignette, glare , scratches, de focus, even color grading are artifacts or wear out that make it so more real than clean, 100% sharp plastic images.
We're seeing some elements through non neutral media and are accustomed to this filter. Look at how 100fps movies look like cheap video first. It takes time to change your habits. And if reality isn't a concern ... Well just use flash games.

replying to myself :

this reminds me of chemists after organic chemistry / atomic physics discoveries saying that basically, science was done.

well, TFA has it ...

Before the arrival of quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of relativity, two theories physicists have not yet been able to reconcile, 19th-century scientists predicted that all major discoveries had been made, Sherrilyn Roush, an associate professor of philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, pointed out.

Well, I think this might have to do with the level of basic science funding (of course I don"t have any figures to back that). Also, this reminds me of chemists after organic chemistry / atomic physics discoveries saying that basically, science was done. Just in time for quantum physics to be discovered ...

So, that's great : saying this just means that we're on the verge of a big event in science !

that's why for many databases I'm an afghan of 13, - or a student of 93 yo if adult is needed -currently retired from aeronautics (or whichever comes first in the drop down list), living at 1, GOTNOADDRESS st IGOTNOTOWN, or whatever. And I give false answers to any obvious commercial data gathering (but I never lie about my keyboard preferences on slash polls - if they still exists)

and yet, those geniuses and 33 years of improvement devised the most horrendous plug with this brittle plastic thing (no nylon, only super breakable transparent plastic) which breaks every. single. fucking. time and thus render your cable to something that unplugs when you look at it funny. Then begins the hunt of a new, perfect and all clicky cable which lasts 3 days and ... aaaargh ! who broke my plug !!!

(* slow claps* well played, fucking geniuses.) - I know I'm bad faith, but still.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
