Are photorealistic graphics the key to advancement?

Do we need believable visuals in order to convey believable emotions? Is a console generation over as soon as you've pushed the systems to their technical limits, or is there yet more work to be done?

More to the point -- if you're relying solely on appearances to generate an emotional link with your audience, are you not just crafting the videogame equivalent of a sociopath?
