You know, the visuals of CoD don't really bother me. Yes, I'd appreciate some higher resolution texture, more polys, etc. What I'd really enjoy more though, is far greater focus and emphasis on the SP. More "Oohh, ahhh!" moments. I'll never forget the beginning of the first CoD where you're parachuting down, and you see the flak all around you and a plane ends up getting shot down... nothing now days but back then even though it was scripted, it looked and sounded amazing. I'm talking stuff like that. Things that are just epic to watch, and look way cool.
Don't really have that in the new ones. So maybe update the engine with higher res textures at least for the PC, more polys and maybe some other visual goodies- but then turn the turbo on for the SP campaign- really put some time into. Develop the plot, the atmosphere, and throw in those epic cinematic moments.
That'd be enough for me.
