Call of Duty: Ghosts’ fish AI was something that was ridiculed by the entire Internet because of how absurd it was. Fun fact: Super Mario 64 did it too. But now Infinity Ward has come out and said that it was just a joke and they had no intention of talking about it during the game’s demonstration at the Xbox One reveal event.
“It’s just fish, it’s an effect. It’s not a big deal. It’s not even new. I love that the internet picked up on it,” Infinity Ward’s Mr Sark told Machinima in a video interview. “I love that they picked up on Nintendo 64′s Mario, and showed that. That was awesome. That was so exactly what I wanted out of that, so thank you guys. Thank you internet.”
Well this looks like damage control frankly but it could have been a joke as well. The comment can be spotted at the 5 min mark.
As a bonus here’s the Super Mario fish AI video.
