Top 5 video game engines that need to be overhauled

Top 5 list of video game engines that need the most work and probably need to be thrown out and built from the ground up. Do you agree? (Dev, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Call of Duty engine should be on this list.

You know, I undoubtedly was going to put Call of Duty on this list it seems like a no brainer(I think the majority wants that) but I said you know what? Let me be fair and put the games on here that I personally played extensively.

So ultimately I left it off 1, cause I don't play Call of Duty and 2, Even though I know from the outside looking in Call of Duty has it's issues I'm not sure if the issues are surrounded in having a subpar engine that's incapable of producing next-gen gameplay and graphics more than it's a issue with the developers themselves; a game being milked, thus releasing too quickly and therefore not producing a consistently well done gaming experience. Or even committing themselves to enough of a change where a new $60 purchase is warranted.

Whenever I see that a game has been made with the Unreal Engine (3) I make this "ugh" sound. I just can't stand the way it handles textures and lighting (the overall tech I suppose). But then again I play on console and not PC, where everything's prettier. The few exceptions are the Batman Arkham games, Gears, and probably Borderlands. I love the MT Framework engine though, despite the fact that it's starting to show it's age. Anyway, the article is a fun read. I love reading people's opinions on this sort of stuff. =)

Assassin's Creed. Characters feel so stiff and the combat is almost cinematic like a quicktime event. And, the stealth could be much better as well. I want more options to distract guards and more options for stealthy kills. Lowering my notoriety without having to pay someone off is also a must. God! that game annoys the crap outta me sometimes. What are devs thinking!?
