The 4 Most Hilariously Failed Attempts at Video Game Realism

When people talk about realism in video games, they are almost always referring to how real the games look. However, we talk far less about how realistically a game plays, mainly because realistic gameplay doesn't exist. Oh, we might pretend it does, gushing about features like "bullet physics" while overlooking the fact that it takes seven or eight of those bullets to bring an enemy soldier down. Ultimately, most attempts at creating "realistic" gameplay backfire as soon as the developer is forced to choose between keeping the game realistic and making a game that is fun to play.

The story is too old to be commented.

LOL great list, but careful with #1 any criticism of TLOU on this site be it a joke or not means you are the spawn of satan.

While I do agree with what he's saying (everyone knows of the AI in this game). It's very obvious that he is fishing for hits on the site. Anyone would be naive to think otherwise that the game is one of the biggest failures of realism.

Hopefully the journalist won't need a gun and bodyguards for mentioning TLOU.

I love how people say Battlefield 3 is realistc and yet you can see flashlights and lasers in daylight from a kilometer away and that a little bottle can repair a tank.
