Well, it’s here with the inevitability of a flood of money, engulfing everything in its way with the sweet, sweet smell of profit. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the apotheosis of a Critic Proof Game. No matter what anyone says, it’s already broken sales records and will keep Activision in safely, distantly in the black for another year. The franchise has become the epitome of gaming success in the industry, and the embodiment of near fatal levels of machismo for the 21st century male. If you’re a Real Man, you play, nay, you LIVE Call of Duty, calling in sick, yelling at your TV screen, and degenerating into a racist, sexist, religiously intolerant homophobe online, screaming at 13 year old kids that have no right to be playing this game with you.
