True, but stuff like this or this is just over the top. If you happen to have Crysis 3, turn on MoBlur and look around with your pistol while aim down sight. The luminescent iron sight is getting so blurred, that it creates 20 pixel long streaks in both directions, although on screen it barely moves a single pixel.
This stuff is immersion breaking for some.
The source engine did it well, where it creates the subtle blur of fast head movements. But with consoles it helps hide a lot of frame dips and low framerate in general when turning. That's why PC versions retain the over the top, make the whole screen one Color smear effect.
