Despite all the negativity surrounding the Call of Duty series, each game manages to outsell the last. After 10 games, what do fans keep coming back? Andrew Yoon of Shacknews investigates.
I would say the majority of fans stopped caring after the first Modern Warfare, back when Infinity Ward actually knew how to make a proper shooter. In all fairness, I enjoyed the single player campaigns of all three MW games, but after MW1, the multiplayer was beyond retarded. The rest of the "fan" base are all the incredibly annoying 12 year olds who bitch with words they shouldn't even know about yet.
havent bought cod since COD4 !
On "my" (quoted to pertain to MY friends list and not passing my friends list off as a fact) friends list I have more people playing COD4 than Black Ops 2. I usually end up getting them all but I grow bored of them in a couple weeks of casual playing. COD4 was my favorite version.
Because they are casuals.
Fans still care because CoD is fun. It's the same thing and over pretty much but when you are with friends, you don't really pay attention to that. You just want to play with your friends and this game lets you do that in a formula that has proven to work.
no matter what...cod is like mario...people will flock to it regardless.
i love all these stupid article trying to "explain CoD despite the negative comments about it" .... there's a reason why theres so many negative about.. that's what needs to be written about... maybe then, a CoD game thats actually good, that wont have people raging 5 months after release can actually be made..
I really don't care what the wiener's in here say about COD games. They will continue to sell loads because maybe they are fun and people enjoy them.
And there's not really too many fps alternatives on offer for consoles that offer the content variations and ongoing achievement system - for 99% of them it's like reaching Prestige 1 END. But on the PC where there's more choice only CoD4 with it's 64 player servers and user mods and maps is still really popular. The later Cod games locked to 18 player have a very poor online population.
I liked mw2 best. More perks, attachments, and kill streaks compared to mw1. Mw1 was good but mw2 expanded on it and made it better. Mw3 was garbage imo. World at war and black ops 1 were pretty good but blackops2 is lacking. Don't care for the pick ten system. Laggy as hell. And the hit detection is the worst of any fps I've ever played
