    I've seen pros make ungodly good looking models while still keeping the poly count low. So as long as it's done right, why not. Performance is very important, especially on low-end PCs like mine.
    I guess baking, normal and shaders are the main factors.

    I enjoy the game if all the models are either low poly or high poly.

    I don't actually care.

    If the model is beatiful, then it's beatiful, the end.

    I dunno, this question seems very targeted. I mean a year ago I didn't know what a "poly" was, now that I'm a notch through novice in Blender I do, but I really doubt many will be able to easily answer this unless they've already embarked on the modelling path, so to speak.

    Too, I don't really know what the average poly count on models in, say, Half Life 2, is, so I can't answer either.

    It's not the size of the polycount that matters, it's how you use it.

    Less polygons, more performance.

    I prefer performance.
