Then tell me they are valid comparisons for Crysis.
FarCry doesn't look like that on my computer. But notice how much farther you can "see" in Crysis. Notice how many more objects there are being rendered.
I might not be able to chop up trees in the games I listed but I can blow up barrels, manipulate objects with real time physics, and there are rag dolls too. BTW cutting up trees really isn't graphically intensive at all as it uses the CPU and it has been shown that Crysis wont even use 100% of the CPU so that would prove my point even more as to why it is so unoptimized. BTW when you chop up the tree's it isn't even dynamic so I don't see a big deal with that at all. I don't see your point with the map sizes as there are some huge maps in TF2, Bioshock, and COD4 that are even bigger than some of the maps in Crysis.
The AI is also a joke in Crysis so I don't see your point there either :/. You can pick up objects in HL2 which is like a 4 year old game so picking up chickens isn't anything major. Those buildings that you destroy aren't really destroyed either. Each building has a top made out of metal sheets that might get blown away and the wood just disappears when you break it. Nothing revolutionary at all and not a good reason to be getting terrible fps on all systems. BTW if Farcry doesn't look that bad on your computer than lets see some screen shots because as far as I'm concerned it looks that bad maxed out on my computer too.
You also still haven't answered any of my questions....If anything you proved my point even more. Just because when HL2 was released it was the first game to offer fully dynamic physics where you could move all of the objects and what not and there was rag dolls. Yet, it could run maxed out on any decent system at that time without any fps problems.
