Why Do Women Hate Call of Duty?

Cheat Code Central's Josh Wirtanen writes: "Not too long ago, I wrote a nice little article about what exactly it is that makes Call of Duty so addictive. While I was satisfied with myself for being so scientific and well-spoken about my approach to discussing the topic, I must admit that there’s a caveat that I failed to mention: Women, for the most part, are immune to its psychological manipulation."

It because, like my friend's girlfriend told him, 'It just running from one room or location to another shooting people'. They see the game for the simplicity it is. That is all they see it as. They don't care how real the explosions are or how real the blood or trees look. They see the game for what it really is. A mindless, violent romp from on point to another.I have sisters and they prefer something more then that. For many guys that is all they need but they don't see it that way.

I agree, Black Ops 2 was a good game, but the campaign was too repetitive, and the online maps sucked. I prefer games that have a little more freedom online and in campaign.

i blame it on the immature kids playing online.

Does it make me more feminine if I also have a taste for experiences beyond Michael Bay: The Game?

I actually know more women that play COD than I do men. Although I know that's not necessarily the case among it's fan base.

Before looking at the article: their boyfriends/husbands ignore them for the next prestige. X)

It's not just women that hate Lag of Duty.. Anyone that enjoys an actual military FPS with good connection, map design and hate people "camping for killstreaks" hates Lag of Duty as well... Man or woman...

Add to that hoards of 12-year old "squeakers" and it is clear why everybody hates it.

Idk what kind of girls you guys are dealing with but even the prissy girly girls ive dealt with i made into gamers and they love COD and Uncharted. The only thing they might argue about from time to time is that i spend more time gaming then on them lol

According to one female comment, it seems that COD gets straight to the point. And she like her games all (pointlessly) convoluted.
