Infinity Ward can't change Call of Duty too much because it's like a sport

Infinity Ward appears to be making ch-ch-changes with Call of Duty: Ghosts, its vaguely post-apocalyptic and canine-loving Xbox One debut, but there's such a thing as a bridge too far. That's according to the studio's executive producer Mark Rubin, who explained to OXM at Gamescom that the franchise is, to some extent, the victim of its own success.

Lame ass excuse, we know the exact reason why you don't change that game year in year out.

MONEY. Change brings risk and risk brings potential loss of $.

Grow some balls and make a new engine from the ground up, you lazy, greedy Aholes.

YouTube "Call Of Duty Ghosts team deathmatch gameplay" and tell me if what you see looks next gen to you. Pathetic.

GarrusVakarian1628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

Yep, ive bought and played every Call of Duty game. Ive waited in midnight launch lines and they are ALL the same. With all the next gen footage im seeing on N4G of other games and being very impressed, this game doesn't impress me in the slightest. Looks like current gen .5

But what do you expect from lazy,greedy developers/publishers like them. They class innovation as being able to play as a low res texture dog and sun-rays that come from multiple sources and laughable destruction.

Wow, it took you that many purchases to realise that?

OrangePowerz1628d ago

People that buy CoD every buy it because it's CoD.

Also why does BF get a free pass when the main series doesn't change much either?

GarrusVakarian1628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

Who's giving BF a free pass? I didn't mention BF.

lonz3581628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

Battlefield actually improves in gameplay. Dice puts in effort to make the game better and not keep it the same because "it's like a sport" lol. COD basically has been the same since Modern Warfare

OrangePowerz1628d ago

The BF4 Beta feels the same as BF3.

CaptCalvin1628d ago

IDK what you're on. BF4 is looking to be a massive improvement over BF3 in terms of gameplay. BF3 feels like a prototype to BF4 actually.

Shane Kim1628d ago

BF4 is BF3 with a falling skyscraper. It doesn't mean that it is bad, but see the game as it is.

lsujester1628d ago

I don't know about massive, but it does fix a couple of BF3 issues, but also introduces some of it's own. Either way, the core gameplay hasn't changed that much, except it does feel a bit faster to me, which is most definitely NOT an improvement.

OrangePowerz1628d ago

BF so far had the adventage of bigger gaps between each game so that makes changes more noticeable especially between BF 3 and the previous main games (not including bad company). CoD comes out every year with smaller changes and tweaks and that makes it very hard to see the differences.

I'm not saying BF4 is going to be bad, but I'm realistic enough to see that not much has changed to 3 and I'm ok with that as I buy BF4 because I enjoyed BF3 and want more of the same experience.

Lol do u guys remember when there was a comparison between blackops 2 and ghosts, only true difference was resolution from what i remember.

MizTv1628d ago

All they do is cut and paste

Palaven1628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

I won't be getting Ghosts on day one but why should they change it when it works and millions of people buy the game ever year?

I am obviously going to get a lot of disagrees but Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer looks very similar to CoD multiplayer in gameplay videos. It just shows that the CoD multiplayer formula and mechanics work when other developers are taking inspiration from them.

Soupaman661628d ago

why don't we give this much hatred to sport games. its like were just hipsters to the generic things. I bet after so many people praise bf and how cod is filled with kids, kids will go to bf and people will want another shooter and hate bf. I'm not hating. its just annoying seeing these types of complaining about the same thing for years. their method of making cod games is very different from others. I'm even seeing ea doing the same with bf and medal of honor. if that's the way they do it and many consumers like their games and you don't like it, don't buy it. It just means you have an opinion. I bet somebody is probably going to call me a cod fanboy but its the same for everything. People hate on apple, cod, windows 8, and many other things as if there's nothing else in the world to use. People cant call themselves grown people if they keep complaining about products.

pedrof931628d ago

You are wrong, they are right in not changing the game, what is inexcusable is that they release o ton of Dlcs and make the exact same game every year._

GarrusVakarian1628d ago

"they are right in not changing the game"

"what is inexcusable is that they make the exact same game every year"

Way to contradict yourself.

MidnytRain1628d ago

That video wasn't Call of Duty Ghosts.

GarrusVakarian1628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

What, the video titled "Call Of Duty:Ghosts multiplayer gameplay" wasn't footage of Call Of Duty Ghosts?

Lol,whatever you say buddy.

MidnytRain1628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

-_- Perhaps you should have just provided a link. I'm looking at a video with that exact title and it's not CoD Ghosts. On a side note, just because I video is titled a certain way doesn't mean it's real. People fish for hits.

This is what I've always said. People compare CoD to BF when really it's more like Madden and Fifa. Annually released and competitively based.

Thomaticus1628d ago

Quick scoping is a sport now..... And quick scoping while spinning around fast as hell is a sport now..... Sports change parameters to make the game more competitive or balanced all the time. The devs have got to continue to improve gameplay. Don't let the series get stagnant like madden and FIFA (maybe FIFA ) because you're a video game sport.

obelix011628d ago

I hate quick scoping. Its just as bad as camping.

Brix901628d ago

There's no quick scoping in Ghost they took it out.

CaptCalvin1628d ago

What a lame excuse. Some sports undergo changes EVERY YEAR. Look at F1 for example.

RioKing1628d ago

What a lame example -_-

CaptCalvin1628d ago

man why you gotta be hating on f1?

CynicalKelly1628d ago

For me, it's not about the lack of changes, I know what CoD is and I can appreciate it for exactly that. A arcade style fast paced shooter. For me, it's that all the changes they do make, are god awful and terrible.

The map design seems to have hit rock bottom, every map is now what seems like a small maze with three or four ways to go. No longer do we have long range areas for snipers, mid range for assault rifle users and close ranged areas for SMGs and the gameplay mechanics have been altered to suit that.

Snipers don't need to aim, too many dumb perks and attachments, explosives, lag compensation.

It's not about change. It's about bad and lazy development. I would buy the same old crap every year if it was like CoD4 or even MW2 but MW3 and Black Ops 2 were two of the worst games I have ever played... That is a huge deal, I play a lot of crap.
