For five seconds there I actually thought this article would provide ten proper reasons as to why Ghosts might stand a chance later this year. Fortunately, I was wrong.

It will likely be the top selling game of the year and set sales records regardless.

It will still sell like hot cakes, no doubt about that, but in my circle of Steam friends, containing plenty of dedicated COD players, there is only a handful looking forward to Ghosts.

I know it might not look like it, but COD is actually starting to lose a major part of its audience. Black Ops II already sold millions less than Modern Warfare 3 and I'm expecting that Ghosts won't do any better.

Also, don't forget that Battlefield 4 is coming out this year. I'm not comparing the two, but BF4's earlier release date gives it a significant advantage and might seriously impact Ghosts' sales.

The key for Battlefield 4 is they cannot release a PC version that was as buggy as 3 was. Many people could not get online or had many issues the day of release. Yes they patched it quickly but many had alot of issues on launch day.

Very much true, now that I think about it. BF3's buggy launch drove me away from the game for a couple of months and made MW3 my go-to shooter for a while. When I returned to it in 2012 I had so much fun again and I played it almost non-stop.

None of that is really different. Thought this was an innovation article. As it turns out, it's a catch up article.

Lean has been around for ever.
Even Haze had dynamic maps.
Improved AI? Goes out the window as soon as 40 guys pile out of a building..
Free map happened with Blops 2
Underdog..has been done since Wolfenstein

Yeah...It's another annual rehash. There's nothing different.
