You¡re kind of moving away of the point that is obvious nitpicking being worryingly taken as gospel, but either way. Just go play Far Cry 2, and see how the very comparatively minor "game feel" elements (I've watched that video a million times) can carry it for you. That's all I can really say about it. Oh, and you can shoot through walls in FC5. With armor piercing ammo. And in GTAV having guns aimed at people can make cars stop (they sometimes prefer to gamble it and roll you over or run). Not so sure about having their hands up but I recall sometimes them falling in some surrender animation.
