Well, like most things around any 3d package GI is just a tool, and sometimes it useful and sometimes it isnīt...
I do agree however in that thereīs been an overuse of GI lately and most cases it was not justified! Most people (including me)usually smack a skylight and a spot and call that a lighting scheme, and the truth is that it does not look bad at all even tough it does wash up the scenes a lot.
But mostly I think itīs just the alure of the new toy...as more efficient GI calculation methods come up, with the aid of the ever increasing power of desktop PCs, GI sudently became available to almost everyone, and they all wanna have a go at it I guess.
