Call of Duty is Turning Into Mass Effect

Many Mass Effect fans lamented the recent metamorphosis of BioWare's signature sci-fi series from a role-playing game with shooter elements to a shooter with role-playing game elements. So what to make of the new Call of Duty playing a bit more like a Mass Effect? (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

You will get a CoD game that let you change the color of the grenade that kills Makarov's son depending on which door you breach.

A lot of people me included, don't like choice implementation, I play video games for the story, but I prefer having a single outcome, take Infamous 2 for example 2 different choices, 2 completely different endings, now while both endings were great, there is no real closure regarding what happens next. Unnecessary choices can be quite lame, Final Fantasy XIII-2 had one of the worst implemented choice systems I have ever tried, my point is if ain't broke, don't fix it.

On a serious note, i would have liked a game that let you change the story and ending depending on decisions, but not by last moment choices, but instead choosing "routes" in the middle of the story, like if you want to side with the villain instead of the good guys, or follow and protect an important character instead of accepting a mission to kill a VIP. With every route leading to a different ending.

The problem with this is that depending on where you choose to split the routes, you end up having to "make a new game" for every route, and risk recycling for the sake of time/effort.

That's why usually you found this kind of things on "visual novels" or more "simple games" that focus on story line/dialogue/text instead of having to create maps/enemies/formations/trigge rs/etc.

Still, i would kill for a new F.E.A.R. that let you choose what to do or who you side with. [spoiler?](i'm sure i'm not the only one who wanted to save Alma in any of the 3 games.)

Favorite Comment of the day just for the F.E.A.R remark. I've played 1-3 and was curious do you wan't a 4 or a side story (ie Not involving the family.)

I think a side story would be better since the main story already ended.

Maybe a sequel for Perseus Mandate?
