    The Realism of Ghosts

      The realism in this game is subpar at best.  I mean, I was looking at the clouds the other day and they dont move.  It rains on my face, snows, I see smoke going up, leaves rustling in the wind, waves crashing on the shoreline, and motars falling from the sky.  BUT THE CLOUDS DONT EVEN MOVE!!!

       

      If I am paying 60 dollars for this game.  I want my clouds moving.  Other than that, everything else is pretty much okay.

          Goddamn Activision for not spending millions on life like clouds.

              Moving clouds would be so OP in this game. The weather in ghosts needs nerfing already, why is there no long john perk for us to use on whiteout? Or a rain coat uniform for stormfront? Just wait until health & safety find out you are not providing the option for wellies on flooded too.

                It is not meant to be fully realistic like that and clouds moving has little to do with what is normally seen which is the other things you mention since most will be looking down not up in the sky. plus the current gen could not handle all of that and everything else in the game at the same time.

                    Ironic thing is is that if CoD was based on realism, people would most likely be complaining a lot more than they are now.

                     

                    Things like different bullet calibers and how they can work, bullet drop and what affects it (gravity, humidity, distance, etc.), shotguns killing at much greater range than what CoD tends to display as well as various explosives (shrapnel and such), dying in 1 good shot or at least being disabled due to losing limbs and/or pain and such (and can die from blood loss and such, so obviously, no regenerating health), MUCH more camping and longer range combat, UAVs and other aerial streaks being obstructed due to cloud cover or something, and so on and so forth.

                        Don't forget having to buy another copy of the game because you die. lol I think people would hate the game even more.

                            Also can't forget things like guns jamming, and overheating and changing barrels (on those that can do so, usually various LMGs), possibly a lot more clutter (thus you could also slip/trip and drop your gun and such, lol), needing to call in specific coordinates for air support rather than just pressing a button, no "Perks" and how fast/slow stuff happens (like reloading) is entirely random, character fatigue due to too much sprinting and having to take a break to drink water and then rest, lol (which can also affect things like fast your actions are, how focused you can be, and so on), a lot more possible bullet ricochets, etc.

                          Never noticed.  Guess i was too busy worrying about killing people. 

                           

                          Lets add more lag to the game with moving clouds.

                            Proof that people will complain about anything.

                             

                            Let's make it really realistic... Next time you die in game... you can't come back. We'll take your game and bury it in it's case in the back yard next to the dead hamsters and cats.

                              you didnt notice the teleporting dog animation, throwable C4, 2-3 hit .50 cal sniper rifle, any type of ground sliding ability (rocks, water, bricks, concrete), ability to stab a person while they are unloading into you, flames not burning you, the fact that you can't climb on something that's 3 feet high on one map but can pull yourself up something thats 6 feet on another...BUT you noticed the lack of cloud movement?? ADD much?

                                Moving clouds..? Hah. You can have a $70 craigslist xbox that plays the game perfectly smooth, but try to play this crap heap on a $3k pc and it's stutter city. IW shouldn't even think about adding anymore dynamic graphics.. it's obviously outside their ability.

                                  Isn't Stonehaven supposed to be in Scotland?  In which case the major failure on that map is the fact there are individual clouds, as opposed to just a blanket of grey ones.....

                                            Yes, for the love of Mike, please let's not see any of this! 

                                             

                                            I DO NOT want to hear one of my team mates make a call out like, "I just shot a guy in the back with my sniper rifle and killed a sheep too"!

                                            Clear Skies shout? Or am I thinking of the wrong game?

                                            Graphics in this game are pretty bad. I'm guessing this game was optimized for the last gen. We shall see how the next 2 games look compare to Ghosts.

                                                It will be probably about the end of the year or some time into the next but I am with you, the next few titles will take in account actual next gen hardware functionality. I noticed even titan fall is being released on the 360 so it isnt taking full advantage yet.

                                                  I think the graphics for the next gen are pretty good. Just look off the edge of the map with a sniper on Prison Break. The trees that are clearly outside of the map still have pretty good detail.

                                                    Sheep, lol! Reminds me of one of my two favourite books of 2013 -the other is Ready Player One, I highly recommend it, especially to gamers who are also readers.

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    NIck Harkaway, "The Gone Away World".

                                                    "A war zone is a bad place to be a sheep. Its not a good place to be anything, but sheep generally are a bit stupid and devoid of tactical acumen and individual reasoning, and they approach problem solving in a trail-and-error kind of way. Sheep wander, and wandering is not a survival trait where there are landmines. After the first member of a flock is blown up, the rest of the sheep automatically scatter in order to confuse the predator, and this, naturally takes more than one of them onto yet another mine and there's another woolly BOOM-splatterpittersleee-eutch, which is the noise of an average-sized sheep being propelled into the air by an anti-personnel mine and partially dispersed, the largest single piece falling to Earth as a semi-liquidised blob. This sound or its concomitant reality upsets the remaining sheep even more, and not quite until a few of them have been showered over the neighbourhood do they get the notion that the only safe course is the reverse course. By this time, alas, they have forgotten where that is, and the whole thing begins again. BOOM."


                                                    This goes on for another page or so, describing sheep trying to establish a perimeter defence.
