Series Like Tomb Raider, God of War and Call of Duty Need to Die

"Sequels are like flies, they seem to only show up when you least want them to be around and when one shows up you can expect many more to follow. That isn’t to say that all sequels are bad, because they aren’t all bad. Sometimes games were made to be stretched out over multiple games and console generations. " |

You people need to stop comparing God of War to Call of duty. God of war has had only 4 real installments while CoD has had a yearly release for the last few year. These websites need to die is what I think.

Ezz20131978d ago (Edited 1978d ago )

yeah, i agree
why don't who made that article go ahead and say halo and gears and forza and GT and uncharted and Batman etc need to die ..and to hell with those games fans ..right ?!

let those games die because i want too and fans have no right to want more..right?!

gaming media of tose days

jimbobwahey1977d ago

Yeah, it must really suck to be such a wretched human being that you want something that millions of people enjoy to stop existing.

I'll never understand people who whine about things like this.

rpd1231977d ago

The thing that people never seem to understand, is that series are milked because consumers want them to be milked. They'll buy it every year and will more or less enjoy it. It's not publishers fault that people like these games and there is enough demand to make one every year. In God of Wars case, I think Ascension was unnecessary, but there are plenty of people who will love the game.

Whoever approved this article needs to die.

Tomb Raider just got rebooted to a really good game
God of War is too dam good of a SP game
and too many people enjoy COD

so why do they need to Die? Cause they DON'T and this article is STUPID!

What NEEDS to Die is CRYSIS unless they go back to the ORIGINAL CRYSIS FORMAT!!

Survival Horror Games that have NO Horror or Survival need to Die!

Stop making Tennis games No one buys them!!!!

Snookies121978d ago

Lol at the Tennis part... I enjoyed Mario Tennis to some extent. Everything else I agree with you on though. :]

RyuCloudStrife1977d ago

Lol At tennis. I agree with you.

morganfell1977d ago

Cheap websites run by unimaginative adolescents that keep writing "need to die" articles actually need to die.

Derekvinyard131977d ago

Cod is never going to die it sells about 10 million and up in the first week

Heh, this article was made for shock value. That much is obvious from the title. People coming on here all butthurt about what it says really have to ask themselves what they were actually expecting.

Any article saying "x needs to die" has clearly been made for the sole purpose of pissing people off.

God of War has 6 installments (2 from the PSP), not counting HD versions for the PS3. God of War needs a rest. 6 games in 8 years (first released in 2005), let Kratos rest for a few years.

As for Call of Duty... it needs a rest, but won't get one because it sells like ****.

Tomb Raider took a break for 4-5 years and returned better then ever. I'll like a new one 2 years from now.

Other games like Halo, Battlefield, Forza, Uncharted, LBP, etc ... also need a rest.

isa_scout1978d ago

God of War has 4 true home cosole releases across both PS2 and PS3(hd collections don't count because they're just re-releases). I believe he needs a rest to though. Not because I think the games are lacking but because he needed more meaningful foes than the furies, but given the fact he's already killed off most of the greek gods and creatures I don't see where they could go forward and still have something worth saying.Kratos had his revenge now it's time for him to bask in the darkness he has created.
Also, I couldn't agree more, Tomb Raider was absolutely amazing, and it was probably the best reboot of a game I've ever played. As long as games like Halo,Gears,Uncharted, and COD make money they will continue to be made, and I'm fine with that because most of those games are pretty damn good. The elephant in the room....Assassins Creed...Who actually still cares about that series???I picked up AC3 on release day and was bombarded with bugs and glitches. Wont be buying abother AC game for a good long while.

Ultr1977d ago

no. just no

If you don't like them, DON'T play them!

let us enjoy our games -.-

kreate1977d ago

There's only 2 god of war games on ps3.

The reason it seems like a lot is becuz there is 3 different platforms. 2 for each console. Which isnt milking it at all.

Im sure there will be 2 more for ps4. And a god of war complete collection towards the end of the cycle.

Mounce1978d ago


Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty and what would be Guitar Hero/Rockband. 1 of those series have already died though.

AC doesn't really have an ending any time soon unless there's a final chapter coming randomly.

jakmckratos1977d ago

It's only getting grouped in there because idiots are just looking for recent games to compare to. God of War has been released about every 3 years..that is MORE than enough for fans of the series. TOmb Raider was an AMAZING game. How anyone could ever say it needs to die...I question their intelligence and their actual passion for gaming. CoD is ridiculous...and look at Halo too... Halo 3, ODST, Wars, Reach, Anniversary and 4 in 5 years??? That's quite a bit no? Honestly I dont think long as the games are quality and add something in terms of gameplay having a game every 2 years sounds great to me!

One things for certain, the Author's a Gears fan.

The only one I agree with COD.
The new Tomb Raider is an amazing fresh experience.
God of War has only received 2 installments on the Ps3. (Not including Collection)

jrbeerman111978d ago

replace god of war and tomb raider with assassins creed

pr0t0typeknuckles1978d ago (Edited 1978d ago )

i duisagree except for call of duty that does need to die,but tomb raider is better than ever only thing it needs is a few more puzzles,and god of war just needs a longer break and maybe a new setting and character considering kratos and the greek mythology is done,now series that actually need to die are assassins creed,and im a huge AC fan but it needs to either sit out a few years and rethink or be pushed into a grave like it already is,and while i can see some of his points for why he feels GoW and TR should die, I disagree with him and feel that this is a stupid list.

isa_scout1978d ago

Why does everyone want COD to die? Listen I know most of you have some type of beef with Activision, but lets not forget that while Acti does some crazy things with the series(map packs are too frequent and too damn pricey)they have transformed and redefined this generation of gaming.For better or worse COD is here to stay. Personally, I'm glad it is here because it drives competition in the market place. Even if I don't really play that much of the COD games; I cannot deny what it has done for gaming. Gaming has become a huge mainstream hobby, and a big part of that is because everyone knows COD. If you ask your grandma who Kratos is she would probably look at you like you're retarded, but if you ask her if she has ever heard of Call of Duty 9 out of 10 times she'll at the very least have seen a commercial of it. COD took gaming public people. We should show some respect to the series for all that it has done.

csreynolds1978d ago (Edited 1978d ago )

The only thing we should be thanking Call of Duty for is the saturation of the genre, if not the industry. Your point about Kratos demonstrates the problem precisely; brilliant IPs get overlooked in favour of an uninspired shooter. Moreover, CoD has birthed a community formed primarily of arrogant, abusive adolescents who spew invective at anyone who dare shoot them. This is not a good thing in ANY way.

Thumbs up to pushing eSports and all, but today this franchise is little more than a substandard cash cow that gets sloppier with each new instalment - Black Ops 2 being a prime example. Type 'Black Ops 2 sucks' into YouTube and you'll get more than one million results. To me, that says a lot.

DeadlyFire1978d ago (Edited 1978d ago )

Its the same reason why EA is worst company in the world my friend. You can't fight it. Its just what people believe. Wether its true or not at the end of the day.

If people wanted them to really die. They wouldn't bother buying them.

Why ask developers to take a break. You are tired of said game then don't buy it's sequels for a few years and you will see a difference when you go back to it a couple of years later. You don't need to own every episode of every TV show you watch do you?

pr0t0typeknuckles1977d ago

COD has done nothing good for gaming at all,developers strive to get COD sells,and its making deb=velopment cost go hich as well as high sells expectations,and now companies are dropping like flies,because of COD games like prince of persia,sly cooper,mortal kombat,spec-ops,etc... get overlooked and dont sell,activisions rehash of call of duty every year actually makes most developers lazy because there like hey if they can release the same game every year with half assed effort then why cant I,and when did i ever say I hated Activision,now i dont like them because of COd and for what they did to spyro and crash,but i dont hate them.

from the beach1978d ago

These are series that have earned their keep by selling millions of copies worldwide. They don't need to 'die', they need to evolve, innovate and stay interesting.

GadgetGooch1978d ago

Seeing as the new Tomb Raider was probably one of the best games i have played in the last 12 month then i hope to god it does not die.
