Den of Geek takes a look at some of today’s biggest long-lasting video game series like Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed to see how their now yearly models might have begun to cause a much-dreaded case of gamer fatigue.
Every Call of Duty game was good until MW3 MP was a scam.
i agree 100%, the level design is totally uninspired,MW3 felt like a lifeless version of CoD 4/MW2
I feel I have kinda hit fatigue with Assassin's Creed, usually I would get them day one but this time I'd rather wait, that in combination with the unsatisfying ending that was in 3.
I don't know if ruining is the right word, but yearly releases don't give much time for any innovation or evolution to work their way in. It's more stagnation than ruin, but none of my favorite franchises are yearly releases anyway.
im a huge Call Of Duty fan and the last "Class A" CoD game was Modern Warfare 2, everything in the old IW Cod was CUTTING EDGE at the time, now it's lost, i still love it though but no where near as much as the CoD 2, CoD4 and MW2 days so yeah the yearly release and firing of IW staff ruined one of my favorite games, im sure it hasn't ruined the pockets of Activison though i hope ghosts deliver, what i saw yesterday looks fun but looked current gen, i hope it was xbox 360 gameplay
I assume no. IW is already praising the "technical features" that were present in the video. I'll try to find the examples but they were pretty ridiculous so I can't remember what to google.
even every other year gets tiring. as much as i loved the uncharted series, i was glad to get something different in the last of us. god of war is another series that i loved but is getting stale to me. to have a rehash of a game every year is complete overkill.
God of War wouldn't have felt old if the bosses you killed in Ascension were memorable. They just felt like some random sub-bosses compared to killing each of the gods with their own powers in God of War III.
It ruined Assassin's Creed for me. Started out as a really interesting series that just tired itself out. I didn't get Brotherhood til it was 14 bucks, never got Revelations, didn't even finish III, and I'm not really interested in IV. For God's sake they had the trailer for Black Flag a couple months after III came out, telling us to pre order. Piss off.
Exactly how i felt. i just got bored of brotherhood i left it for like a year went back to it and realized i was completely done with the series. now i just read wiki and watch the various endings on you-tube to keep up with the story
It ruined Ac, 2 and brotherhood were great,but revelations was crap,and even 3 was boring and 4 looks even worse.
yes madden has been dead to me for decades.
