IGN's Call of Duty experts discuss the future of gaming's biggest franchise.
No, nothing is. As they say....The big they are the harder they fall.
Too big to fail means Too big to exist in my opinion (really aimed towards banks, but whatever, lol)
Sonic was huge in the early 90's, endorsements, kids shows...the full shebang. Look at him now.
But cod isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be, it's a solid shooter
I agree, COD is good. The only problem is that it is the same old thing in a new package.
I think it is somewhat similar to CS where everyone said it would never die out but it did...
CS is not dead, in fact its doing alot better than blacks ops 2 http://store.steampowered.c...
Its nowhere near its former glory...
Everything hits the ceiling eventually, but considering Ghosts will be on Xbox 360/Fusion, PS3/PS4, Wii U, PC and maybe handhelds, it'll probably be the best selling COD of all time.
then Activision will milk something else to death.
I don't see why everyone sees Call of Duty as a bad thing. The industry needs a juggernaut like COD, but I can see something else rising above it some time in the future. For now, let's be positive about the possibilities a next gen COD can bring to the table.
oh? The gaming industry needs a overhyped game with ZERO creativity and NOTHING new or innovative with each release. The industry needs a big game sure but one that defines creativity, quality, and how much of an art form and entertainment outlet gaming can be.......call of duty is none of that.
You people make Call of Duty to be the anti-Christ. It' really not that bad. There's reasons as to why it hasn't innovated: The formula. The 60 frame 1080p ultra smooth gameplay is what people come back for. If Call of Duty had upgraded its engine earlier in the game, it would have had to sacrifice what's mentioned above. Call of Duty thrives because of its resistance to change. When you're the publisher of such a juggernaut and phenomenon, it would be understandable to NOT make drastic changes to such a spot-on formula. In fact, it would have been ridiculously dumb of Activision to play around with the gameplay over the last few years. With the next gen approaching, there's finally an opportunity to up the visuals substantially while keeping everything that makes COD, well, COD. And don't tell me about innovation, if it hadn't innovated, there wouldn't be so many COD clones in the market. It's so good, that it makes EVERYTHING ELSE look bad. Blame it on the OTHER devs and publishers for doing little to change it up and take risks. Call of Duty is also consistent quality. It's highly polished stuff, and there's enough content in each game to keep players coming back for months. Even years.
of course its too big to fail.... and that why CoD fanboy reviewer sites like IGN WILL NEVER LET IT FAIL..... it makes too much money for them (through views), it makes too much money for youtubers associated with IGN (through views), and now that Activision bought the IPL (IGN pro-league), that's even more reason why the biased CoD site known as IGN will never let it fail.. the fact that they gave that copy and paste crap MW3 a 9 only means that any CoD with only the smallest change will get a 9 or above every year no matter how garbage it is... CoD is IGN's cash-view cow, in the same its Activision's cash cow.... IGN will never let CoD fail, no matter how bad it is..
i think activision/IW are working hard on this COD. They need to make their game stand out compared to BF4, especially considering the game will also be on next gen consoles. Atleast they are using new engine which is a good sign.
LOL! In COD black Ops 2 campaign you can kill an entire armored batallion with only a horse and an RPG....FAIL. And... The COD multiplayer doesnt have vehicles, large and destructible scenarios, big explosions, team gameplay, the shooting is absurd. COD It's a fail since MW3, the same game of every year. I'm now follower of Battlefield.
