There are some very good reasons why should wait for the next gen to purchase Call of Duty: Ghosts.
There really isn't a good reason to support a bad game, as BO2 was the last one I will ever purchase, I really hope more people will open up their eyes to a game so copy and pasted
I have come to terms that COD will not die for the next 2-5 years. People, mostly kids will keep requesting parents to buy it for them.
It's been the same game ever since the respawn guys left. I predict that Titanfall will be the new CoD next gen.
Why? So I can have that half assed game that i payed DOUBLE for (with all that downloadable crap) ruin ANOTHER system. Black Ops 2 is such an untested piece of shit that it ruined 2 PlayStations and an Xbox of mine. Im guessing according to Activision, thats my fault too....just like the lag...remember they said the lag was our fault for not having forwarded ports? I didnt have a router..lol but still had lag. Totally my fault....my fault for buying....lol. I'm not touching another COD title unless its on a system I don't care about losing and have NOTHING else to play. That so-called game isn't touching my ps4 or Xbox one. Especially because there are other games to buy anymore apart from this Omgz quickskopz 360 spin doritoez kids festz.Lol I don't give a shit of the game series dies or not though, cause it keeps all the little kids away from my real games. Ghosts looks sub-par even in the next gen jump....probably chalked up to the fact that they're keeping the same Dev schedule yet releasing it on 5 systems instead of 3 this year. Oh and Fr0sty (below me).....BUBBLES! that was very well said.
im hoping rainbow six patriots will be my next cod,i used to love playing online on black arrow
If I buy it, it will be for next-gen. Right now I'm just getting a PS4, but if I were to get an XBOX One, I'd buy it for that system. I tend to buy CoD for MS systems, because my MS friends play CoD, and My PSN and PC friends play Battlefield. But yeah, I'd buy it for next-gen just because it will look better. The online community won't be as big on next-gen as this gen, but hopefully the higher price of the new consoles will make it to where more adults are playing, and less kids. I know everyone bitched about the high price of the PS3 at launch, but the up side was that there were no kids online. The high price made it to where just working age people could afford it.
Exactly! I agree with you. For example, I pre ordered my XB1 launch console, along with my 13 yr old nephews XB1 launch console at GameStop. He already had COD Ghosts pre ordered for his X360, and I asked him did he want to move the preorder over to XB1 since he will have it at launch. He tells me "NO, because none of my friends will have a XB1/PS4 at launch so I'll just buy it for my X360." Which leaves me no choice but to buy a copy for XB1 or for my PS4 at launch just to prove a point to my nephew. I told him, he can always make new friends hahaha!
I have wondered for sooo long why developers didnt extend replayablity with weather and day/night cycles. Also, u can take the same map and hav it change a lot just by changing a few things. Imagine 8 maps that each play 10 different ways. I have little hope for the sp but the mp could be fresh enough with the graphics and dynamic maps. Hell, everyone still plays it though there's been little real change since mw and mw2
This basically goes for any other multiplatform game. If your'e purchasing a next Gen system then might as well just get the next gen game. COD, Watch Dogs, Assassin's etc.
Yeah i don't see why anyone wouldn't, same price for better quality(though Ghost on next-gen looks like current gen). Except maybe because their friends won't be getting on next-gen.
I think a lot of people are fed up with COD. I don't think super smart fish, weather effects and squads are going to change their mind. COD until they really create something new, COD might be considered current gen.
@MWong what FPS is really doing anything new and next gen? If anything games like Titanfall and Destiny might be a little, but those aren't launch titles. KZ and BF are the only other ones and it's the same with them. Copy and paste every year with better graphics.
I should write a response article... "Why I don't need armchair journalists to tell me what games I do and do not want to buy." 1. I'm a grown man who has probably been playing games longer than the author has been alive. 2. I don't give a flying rat's ass about Call of Duty. 3. I hate list articles. 4. I hate irony even more. 5. ... this website isn't even working.
Seriosuly people, enough with the "Why" articles. You are not any more qualified to tell people what they should or shouldn't like than anyone else. These articles are so generic, it's tiring seeing them all the time. 50% of N4G articles these days are "5 reasons why this doesn't suck." "Why you should buy this." etc. These articles treat the reader as if they are not able to make informed decisions on their own, and treat the author as if they are in some position to tell the reader what they should or should not buy. Ultimately, 9 times out of 10 they just end up being some fanboy crying on a blog about why you shouldn't hate a product they love (I can't say that last claim about this article, as the site doesn't even work so I don't know.). Can't you people come up with anything more original to write about other than telling other people what they should or shouldn't do?
I think they are useful but not here in gaming websites. This method inform people of what's good and bad in other places where people don't follow gaming news. N4g shouldn't approve them though . Same with why X console is better then y . It's just not with the level of people here. People here already decided what they want. Nothing will change them unless they saw news they like. So bring news and that's it..
Fr0sty, you are the man.
Bubbles to you my friend... Cod is a poorlly made game,that lives from the(previous) great titles of the past made by the original Infinity Ward(you know,the talented ones that were fired),and became a trend nothing else,the quality as been decressing year to year and people are fed up with their sh..t. My guess is that this year with will sell but sell a lot less and one of two thing happen. 1- Activision suports it and give green light to create a new engine and correct everything that makes the game horrible... 2-Activision kills it like they did to Guitar Hero... Lets hope they go the firt one,only time will tell.
Well said my dude. I wish I would click agree multiple times. +Bubbles!!
Same here if not for a friend who annoyed me to sh*t to get Blops2 for zombies I wouldn't have even fooked with it. I'm looking forward to Killzone, Destiny, BF4 next-gen. COD for me is dead.
I used to be so pissed that every year it was the same copy and pasted game.... Until.... I stopped expecting it capture the magic that was cod4 (for me) and I grew to appreciate the cod series for a different reason. Every year, it's the ONE game that brings all my friends and I together, having mindless fun. I don't live near most of my friends, but it's the one game where everyone generally picks up and we all play for months. Sure it's stale, sure it's Arcady... But the fun is had through the friends element. And now I can at least appreciate it for that. But bf4, here I come!! Can't wait
I appreciate CoD for the same reason.
Thats when you get in a COD lobby and discuss other games you all can buy together. Lol. ....or get a ps4 since its now required to have a plus account to play online. They give everyone the same free games so you guys will have plenty to play together. Now that I think about it, that could hurt COD sales in that manner. I hope it actually does.
Same reason why i buy cod except that i find it annoying not like before , i was a huge fan of cod , i play it everyday for hours . But now i can't stand playing it. I will buy ghost , play it 2 or 3 days then i'm sure i will get sick of it. Titanfall in the other hand looks interesting . It seems that it will have some of cod4 magic with new stuff. So that's what i'm waiting for in the ps4. Hope it release after a half year.
Why did it take you until after purchasing "Black Ops II" to realise this?
It wasn't that at all I have a little brother and we have on ps3 and it was the only splitscreen multiplayer game that all of our friends played, this time around ill be two get two ps4s so both of us can enjoy the game
Its what I've been saying for years...all CoD games are nothing more than expensive map packs...I really hope people open their eyes and see that battlefield 4(on next gen at least) will be the preferred fps. Especially since it delivers the full pc experience on consoles which was the main gripe everyone had with current gen. I mean marginally better graphics, insane destruction AND 64 player online. I'm sorry but CoD had its reign this gen on consoles but now its Battlefields turn
BF has the same copy and paste method lol. It's taken what, 5 years for them to catch up to cod with 60fps? I agree that COD is stale and it needs to improve, but there isn't a FPS out there really innovating and changing things....yet.
So you played the game already?
Games are like movies in the way that you pay fir the entertainment. Not everyone liked the movie AVATAR but some people did so they are making 4 sequels, lol. I didn't like it that much but , "like" is subjective. I'll download COD GHOST for XBONE
"some people"? lol it made a billion dollars more than any other movie, ever. But ya, SOME people liked it. lol
Just because they watched it doesn't mean they liked it. I went to watch it with a group of 6. Two of them did not like it.
Copy and pasted like your comment from so many other copy and pasted comments about how Call of Duty is copy and pasted?
Couldn't agree more. I'm getting battlefield 4. It's superior to COD in literally every way.
What about pc lol
It took you that long to figure this out??
AGREED AND BUBBLED. I dont understand why people continue to buy a game that is so obviously recycled year after year.
nah i think ill pass on COD all together.
many people will... it'll be a slow and painful death for CoD
you do realize ghosts will outsell BF4 by 2-1 right? last time it was 3-1.
Activision is already reporting far less than expected preorders for ghosts so I highly doubt it
Then why are you click on COD news? You do know this makes the news more popular and in return, the game itself.
why do you care?
I don't but you along with other on this site really seem to care a lot about a game you hate, which is weird. I ignore things I hate, I don't stalk them.
When people hate something, they would usually like to express their hatred any means necessary. ;)
Who said i hated CoD? That's problem with you and many others on this site who fail at reading and put words in other people's mouths. Where in my comment did I say I hated CoD? ...... That's right I didn't . My comment is a direct answer to the name of the article. Instead of assuming crap why don't you read first moron.
Nope no good reason erm think theres a game called Battlefield 4 look good I guess lol
His argument is more of a 'if you buy CoD, don't buy it on PS3/360 but rather on PS4/XOne'. Not that it makes the article any better, but in no way does it say everyone should buy CoD.
Graphically? Yeah, looks amazing. In terms of actual fun its not on CODs level. Don't get me wrong, its not a bad game but its just missing something.
(in my opinion) COD is the most rage-tastic franchise in the history of FPSs. Even Battlefield 3, which is far less aggravating, gets on my nerves from time to time. BC2?...thats a completely different story. I cant remember me feelng pissed off, ONCE in that game. So much fun.
I don't find playing the same game for 7 years that fun...
no reason at all, COD still use the same engine, the same copy paste graphics, its a current gen game, no need to purchase it, and if still somebody wants to get it currengt gen will be enough
sorry just no......
I'm passing as well. I think Battlefield, Killzone, and Watch Dogs will be quite sufficent. PS4 can't get here soon enough.
I have Battlefield 4, Killzone Shadowfall and Watchdogs all paid off along with my PS4 preorder! I can't wait to walk in and pick it all up!!!
That is the weakest shit I've read in a while.... and no I don't even wanna play this game even for free
To waste another 60$? No thanks.
I'm so fucking sick of cod.... Every year same fucking game
Why do you keep buying it?
Yeah.. Done with cod. Between bf4 and titanfall, I can't really see a reason to waste time and money on what will be another buggy remake..
Pass, I'll get Battlefield 4.
Smart Fish and awesome Dogs! I was talking about Pet Tycoon.
I would buy it if they had dedicated servers. Since it was the most annoying reason why I stopped playing COD I will not buy it this year. I'd rather spend the 60 on BF4.
I'm over military shooters period. Bf4 looks good....little we've seen shows color which I like. So tired of greys. But it's still same military blah. I'm more excited for killzone SF. I hope it's as good as killzone 2. And it too seems full of color. That being said I have both those paid off for my ps4. Cod...I traded in bo2 before the last dlc drop....that I already paid for! Lol I do have a wish list - Bf4 please give us a dinosaur mode!!! Cod ghosts....if your actually willing to at least step up in gameplay....take infection playlist and expand it into something special! Really I'm just waiting to get destiny!
you don't play BF for the color, you play for the experience.
I traded in blops2 and my Xbox 360 even though I have another dlc waiting to download and 8 months left for Xbox live. I too am waiting for Destiny! In the mean time GTA V will keep me busy for a long while.
the US is in trouble blah blah blah new dog. Fish, fish fish. Engine is updated "a bit". Samey, samey.
COD Ghosts won every single category, day one on PS4
I rather invest my money on BF4 for PS4, a game that ACTUALLY tries to push the hardware.
I'd rather scrub my durf with a wire brush....shit I'd even go cactus rather than playing yet another trashy rehash.
