I really dislike open world games without some depth of field though. I've stood on mountain tops and cliffs before, the videogame presentation of being able to see detail for miles is a bit absurd. It looks cool but it breaks my personal suspension of disbelief, Skyrim without DOF looks absolutely comical for example. Just my personal beef, I'm sure other people like it though

The problem with DoF in games is that it's completely arbitrary. If my eyes are focused on something, it shouldn't be a blurry mess. In most games, however, the devs apply DoF to anything in the background regardless of where your eyes are actually focused.

Yeah that's fair, very few games get it right. Devs tend to love their filters and effects for masking console shittiness too I've noticed.
