Are Real Drums Even Worth It Anymore?

I've been working on producing some songs for a sync company this week. Although I've had great experiences with programming drums in the past, I wanted something a little more special for these songs. So I picked up my drum kit from my friend's studio, set up in my tiny little room with a very minimal setup, and tracked drums to all the songs I've been working on.
