WC: Why does it seem so cool to hate Call of Duty nowadays? True, the series has been around since 2003, where it started life as a sort of Medal of Honor clone. True, it’s spawned 9 titles on home consoles alone, and that’s not counting re-purposed titles for other devices. But the most telling signal to Call of Duty’s success is perhaps the fact that each new game, no matter how derided, is an almost guaranteed cash cow.
You’ll trash talk it all you want, but when the next game is released, you’ll be all over the forums speculating what that cryptic photo Activision just released is all about. People still love this series, and yet there are some who love to hate it. With only the first round of Map Packs heading our way, here are some reasons why it’s OK to stop worrying and love the COD.
