one thing that is REALLY stupid is how awesomely real the fire looks, but how it doesnt even burn the grass or trees down, or even remove the leaves or anything.. it just turns the texture black and smoldering, and gives off sparks... thats pretty lame, but oh well

If they did it the other way, they'd have to either swap textures out on the fly (which is going to look bad no matter what), or they'd need actually fire-destructable terrain, which would eat so many resources the game would run like a dog.

I think, sadly, that this currently is about what we can expect to see in games that use fire like Far Cry does.
