Head 2 Head: Does Call of Duty deserve the hate?

CVG: Seconds out, round four. This week me and Tamoor have a good old row about Call of Duty.

Tamoor thinks the blockbuster series is on the receiving end of disproportionate criticisms, whereas I come in to save the day and explain why most criticisms are valid.

But then again, I could be completely wrong. It's up to YOU to decide in our latest episode of Head 2 Head. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Sorry to break this to you British guy but Call of Duty isn't a sport when can you go down to a park or stadium and watch 12 people run around like idiots shooting each other in the face with real guns. Does COD deserve the hate no but it also doesn't deserve its sales ether when other devs create great games with new innovations and never get noticed but COD rehashes the same elements every year and breaks sales records.

Not to mention the god awful ports to the PS3, which is really questionable since Modern Warfare ran quite well with it. I don't really hate COD, I just hate what kind of business practice Activision does with the series.

Well, maybe not where YOU live....

I agree, I don't hate the series but it's really unfair that it gets those sales when other, better games struggle to sell more than a million or two and we never get a sequel because of that, i wish this multiplayer shooters fad will finally die, Black Ops 2 low-compared-to-MW3 sales prove it's declining so that is a good sign.

I think it is unfair that CoD doesn't get recognized more as a great series that matches it's sales. More people likely like CoD that most new exclusive or creative ip on one platform, let alone combined.

Why can't people let others that like something like it, without pissing all over it. It is a great game to many, so get over it!

No, Call of Duty itself doesn't deserve it. Activision does.

I agree. I think this is what alot of people done realise that people not hate cod they hate the way AV do the business with the games.

If a game is not a big hit like blur ect its dropped or if its a hit they release a new one every year and milk it until sales drop like guitar hero.

So you hate the fact that ATVI doesn't support money loosing IPs, but only support the successful ones?

What is ATVI? A public service supported by tax dollars?

As far as I can tell, ATVI makes sensible business moves unlike EA whom try to force online pass or Origin down your throat.

ATVI gives consumers what they want, by evident that they keep buying annual releases of CoD, while EA does not trying to force Online Passes on you, but somehow along the way ATVI is the bad guy?

No i did not mean they dont support under performing ips what i mean is they dont give them a chance. To me if AV games do not see more than 2 million you dont see a 2nd one.

I have not got a code game since mw2 not because i think its a bad game i just want a change and ive just picked up bo2 for the wiiu and im shocked at how good the game looks. I dont think its a halo 4 beater but it looks good and is fun to pay.

I myself traded mine in just yesterday for farcry 3 and dont regret it one bit. it's not that I hate cod i'm just bored with the same s**t every year, I brought black ops 2 on release and hit 3rd prestige and couldn't be bothered anymore, maybe next gen i'll try it agn. After playin farcry 3 for just one day I cant help but feel i've missed out on soooooo many great games but that's what cod does I used to be a gamer and I want that back.

I don't know I didn't really come to like it till MW2 and I play on PS3. Playing with a friend of mine I was able to get really good. An continued that fun with Black Ops 1 and MW3, hated WAW though. Black Ops 2 came along an I am just not feeling it. I hate the way they messed with the kill streaks an the lag compensation at least on PS3 is unbearable. It doesn't matter how good I am instant death is something I can't overcome. Which all comes down to thus far this being the most frustrating cod launch for us ever and also least played.

It really is disappointing for me because it was the only FPS multiplayer I liked since golden eye.

No game deserves hate, the internet is a troll band wagon, kids will jump on and hate on anything because it's cool, right? Yep.

People on here really don't get it. Saying things like it doesn't deserve the sales & its a shame other games don't get the sales. If other games were more up to the mark then people would buy them. People aren't marched to the shops at gunpoint to buy this game, believe it or not away from N4G cuckoo-land people actually really enjoy it. So instead of coming on here bleating, go & play something else.

MW3 deserves the hate, that game was absolute balls.

CoD is awesome, plain and simple
