You got a lot of convincing to do! We're all playing GTA V!

nick3091700d ago

It will still sell like in 2008 when gta IV was out.

pompombrum1700d ago

Lol @ all the disagrees.. he speaks the truth.. sadly. Besides, They have so much more innovative possibilities.. fish? dogs? think of all the other animals ai they can add to the game to revolutionize the series!

Swiggins1700d ago

Tactical Otters, calling it now.

mikeslemonade1700d ago

Not dying but it is in decline. After MW2 the hardcore started to dislike it. And then Black Ops 2 was the first modern COD to sell less than its predecessor, so this means the casual gamer has realized that the game has grew stagnate.

So in other words Madden isn't dead but it's just not what it use to be. Halo isn't dead but it's just not what it is use to be.

I wouldn't say that it's dying. It may slow down some but it's far from dying.

As long as there's dudebros, there will be CoD.

It's sad, but true.

How can you say a franchise is dying when it breaks sales records for the last 3 releases?

JetsFool35001700d ago

BO2 didnt break MW3 Record

Deividas1700d ago

Im pretty sure when you are mostly competing against your own franchise for breaking sales records...its still a good sign.

neocores1700d ago

IM pertty black ops 2 sould more then mw3 also out sold the movie star wars

ritsuka6661700d ago (Edited 1700d ago )

Nope,the game break MW3 record too.

Concertoine1700d ago

Financially no?
in the hearts of gamers? it has been long dead.

davethedj1700d ago

lol i guess you are wrong!!
who is buying it then? gamnerz ;=)

Concertoine1700d ago

No, cod fans.
would you consider the people who went out and bought guitar hero until they were sick of it gamers? no, they were guitar hero fans.

ShinMaster1700d ago

This is true. I know a couple of people that play nothing but Call of Duty. For years now, every time I'm signed in, they're playing COD. They play 1 different game per year at most.

titletownrelo1700d ago

gamer = "I enjoy fps's as well as rpgs, mmos, racing and platforming games."

COD fan = "x < COD"

DejectedJeff1700d ago (Edited 1700d ago )

you can still be both but i get what you're saying

ritsuka6661700d ago (Edited 1700d ago )

Wrong reply.

TheFutureIsBlue1700d ago


Gamers? You know how many girls on fb are like "playing cod lol" just because everyone else plays it? A lot of my friends don't even play other games. They just play cod. I don't consider them serious gamers either. BF4 is catching up. That takes more skill to play and that is why it doesn't get as many sells.

xDHAV0K24x1699d ago

you shouldn't care what other ppl play...unless ur playing competetively, don't comment on what takes skill

iiwii1699d ago

Well, last time I checked, most people play games to have fun not to "show their skills". If it's fun, people are going to play it. If it's not, then they wont.

BTW, who put you in charge of deciding whether someone is a serious gamer (oxymoron) or not? The fact that a lot of people play COD is a testament to the fact that it is fun for those people. Play what you want and let others play what they want. Just because YOU don't like it doesn't mean it's not a fun game.

BTW, I'm personally burned out on it (have been for several versions now) and not buying the next version.

TheFutureIsBlue1699d ago


So you are saying that people who play farmville should be consider gamers? I'm not telling people what they can and can't play, but it does piss me off when people say "I'm a gamer!" when they play cod and barely even play it. Just because I can cook doesn't make me a chef.

iiwii1699d ago

I don't care what people play. But yes, by definition, if they play Farmville daily they are a gamer, even if you don't like it or agree with it.

But I don't think you were talking about Farmville. You were calling out COD fans and saying they were not gamers.

Video games and gamers have been around a LOT longer than the FPS genre has and BF does not set the definition of who is a gamer and who is not. Don't be so quick to label people you don't even know. I would say it's elitist attitudes like yours that put more people off from trying BF than anything else.

Love it or hate it, COD isn't going anywhere for awhile.

Majin-vegeta1700d ago

Idk man ive been reading on various forums and videos and it seems most 12 year olds are mad cuz no.more quickscoping and arent buying it xD.

Concertoine1700d ago

Nah they'll buy it, say it's the best COD yet, then hate it in about 7 months and go back to the last COD, and call that one underrated. Then they'll rinse and repeat this cycle, buying every dlc in between, for the rest of eternity.

ziggurcat1700d ago

Uh huh... Because fish AI really revitalized the franchise, right?

badz1491700d ago (Edited 1700d ago )

no, I think credits go to the chopper take-down dog!

Beastforlifenoob1695d ago

Fish and dog jokes you must be soooo clever to think of such an AMAZINGLY OUTSTANDING innovative and creative masterpiece of a Joke.

I bow down to you my humble, forgiving and gracious sire. Please further humble me with your amazingly thought of intelligent words of wiZdom.

I shall consider your every whim.
