I chose realistic, but I truly don't care. Some of the best games are cartoony or artsy. But I like looking at things in a game, and being able to think, "So that's what it would probably look like in the real world." But it doesn't define whether I'll get it, or like it.
Reference of comparison, I like Twilight Princess for it's realistic style, my favorite look of any Zelda Game so far. Skyward Sword, though a fun game, I hated the graphics. Wind Waker, I like the graphics, they go well with this specific game.
I'm not too fond of 8-Bit specifically, as, that's the past. In my opinion, it's time to move on, those using it are using Nostalgia too much. Give the game an identity that isn't "IT LOOKS LIKE THE PAST WHEN 'GAMES WERE GOOD'"
Simplistic however, is fine.
Anime-y is probably my least favorite, as it just doesn't look like a game. If it's anime-y with depth, 3D Models, that's fine, but where it looks like I'm watching an Anime or something, bleh.

Whatever best fits the context of the game.
