Headshots...

No they don't. Even with the increased bullet damage perk you would be lucky me thinks.

This leads to an interesting point I think, as surely a bullet from any gun, shot in the head, should be an instant kill. However, if the player's health is low enough, a single bullet will make a "headshot" which I think is daft...

Its a game not real life.

But in any case, if you want one 1 shot kills play Hardcore.

Guns such as the M14 and the G3 (single fire rifles) will give a one shot kill if you get a head shot, other guns can take 3-4 headshots.

What a pointless comment. Games actually try to be like real life, it's one of the main aspects that make them so appealing.
True, but until you can capture the realism of the 'fear' of rounds falling at your feet the game will always lack that degree of realism. Therefore the gameplay has to be tempered to retain the element of competition.

If the game was truly realistic, we'd all be terrified to leave that 'bit of cover'. Admittedly this is getting much better and COD4 is the best so far, the number of times in Free-for-all I've been ultra cautious or the confusion in Hardcore Team Deathmatch make this may favourite FPS by far.

No, no. Games try to mix the best bits of fantasy and reality. They aren't trying to be like real life. For example, you'd need a medic being hit once or be deaf and blind in one eye for the rest of the game if you got too close to a grenade that didn't quite kill you. Instead, you might get ringing in your ears for a few seconds. Reality, but without the irksome permanent deafness. That's always a downer.

I agree and disagree here.

I would stake everything I had on my certainty that games will become more like real life as time goes on. What you mentioned about things that don't happen at present indeed do seem pretty silly (at present) to apply in a video game, but who knows what the future holds... ?

Anyway, back on topic :) My opinion is that one bullet to the head *could* be more fun, as it would give people more of a reason to aim there. With COD4 being more realistic than other / older game as far as bullet damage is concerened, you die very easily anyway, so aiming for the head isn't really something you need to be overly concerned about.

Games aren't like real life. You get shot in a game and all you have to do is get a medic to come along or find a first aid pack and you are fine again. In real life you might be out for months and then perhaps walk with a limp for the rest of your life.

Also how many times can one person in a game play all the way to the end and beat off hundreds of enemy soldiers. Could you do that in real life?

Indeed, they are not real life, hence why they are a game. But they are heading in that direction, there's no denying it.

I saw an add the other day for a games flak jacket (no joke).
It has little air pockets inside that "pop" when you get hit - Imagine if you were in the killhouse...you'd sound like a bowl of rice crispies
....:rotfl:

.....unless you're a sniper....:devil:
