All games have them, but some worse than others.
Some people think of poor optimization as bad AI and crappy gameplay (the way the game feels
Crysis unfortunately has all of these problems, so take you pick of what YOU think poor optimization is and I bet you will find it in this game.
Here's a good one.
Optimization has to do with how efficiently something is done. It has nothing to do with bugs. If people define optimization differently then they aren't using the term properly.
Many other popular games, such as BF2, have similar bugs to the one in the video to which you linked. The more complex the game and programming, the more difficult it is to make the game perfect; and no game is perfect. Period. And just because you see console errors doesn't mean they cause issues. I have played many a game where errors appeared in the console but it had no effect in the game. The console errors could be as simple as not finding a texture that a shader links to, but you won't necessarily see it in game because the parts of the object you see were changed.
So, until you have an example of a game that does the same thing as Crysis while performing better, then you can complain about optimization. If you want to complain about bugs that is entirely different, and even then you have no proof that it makes the game run poorly.
A lot of you need to realize that just because something isn't the way you want it to be doesn't mean it is wrong or inefficient or whatever. When you have credibility on this subject, you can make such claims.

So I suppose you've played both games maxed out in DX10 (on your XP machine...) such that you can make that claim? Or you just conveniently have a friend who does?
