I don't want to see quick scoping.

I agree. I hate that stupid fake crap! People think they're so cool doing it. It's not realistic and everyone takes advantage of it. You can be a good player and some stupid quick scope person that sucks kills you constantly.

Since when was anybody playing COD expecting any sort of realism?
The_Infected  +   716d ago
What I'm saying is quick scoping takes the fun out of the game for some people. Going around using a gun "made" for stealth and accuracy and using it for quick scoping goes completely against what a sniper should be.

I really don't think people are expecting anything different. Its a point of comfort for some people, and great contention for others. For a lot a gamers, Ghosts is the next major map update and nothing more. Its my hope that the campaign will be memorable, but honestly I don't remember the stories for more than a few months.

Whats the point of taking risks when the same formula can sell 10 million copies the first week, and yet all we have seen is a space shuttle and a dog.

Then again maybe brainless fun is the best kind.

I don't even understand why quick-scoping is still so popular after all these years. It's not even effective. You die way more often than you get kills.

Obviously that's subjective. Just watch Faze. They're people who live for this quick scoping shit.

@The_infected Yeah, but those videos are fake.. They're all set up.. Besides when I turned 15 it stopped being cool and just became flipping annoying.

I just saw TWO "Call of Duty Time" commercials today. I almost Threw up!

The Once Proud and Core Gaming experience that was COD 1 and 2 and MW1 has now become a Global Casual experience that even Grandmas can enjoy.

I find it so funny hearing people at the office who have ZERO GAMING skills brag about their COD exploits. I just smh and think to myself:

"Thank You Activision for making a game to keep these N0obs OFF of the Battlefield servers"!

Hope you Gamers have a Happy Call of Duty Day!
PsylentKiller  +   715d ago
How do people get gaming skills if you don't let them play? I guess you always had elite gaming skills? And CoD 1 & 2 were proud and core gaming experiences? Medal of Honor was at the top of the military shooter genre as well as Operation Flashpoint at the time. Counterstrike was there dominating the play space as well along with Quake. Those were core gaming experiences. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was never made for the 'hardcore' gamer. Infinity Ward had there sights set on the general public, not just 'gamers'. Treyarch targeted the 'gamer'. Call of Duty 3 was the only Call of Duty that tried to move away from the linear shooter. They let you choose what order to attack your missions. That game was a proud gaming experience. One that I would encourage all to partake in gamer or not. This crappy habit for 'gamers' to call those who are new to a game a 'noob' is counterproductive to what the gaming community is trying to build. For over 30 years now we've been building respect for our art and entertainment medium. We want to be taken as seriously as cinema, music, art, and literature. You, ATi_Elite and others like you, want to set us back to the beginning. Just because people don't have the gaming skills you have means they can't have fun playing a game? They can't share their experience? I wonder how old you really are? I've been playing games since the Atari 2600. I had no gaming skills because I was new to video games but I fell in love with them ever since I got my hands on River Raid and Frogger. I had a PC bit I was mainly a console kid. NES, SEGA Master System, Super Nintendo, N64, SEGA Saturn, SEGA Dreamcast, Playstation, PS2, XBOX, PS3, XBOX 360, and soon to be an XBOX ONE owner. I also have a gaming PC now with a GTX 680 FTW 4GB. In all my time gaming, never once have I ridiculed, put someone down, or tried to make another person feel ashamed for not being good at a video game, a sport, or anything else. You, sir, should be ashamed of yourself. I am not going to tell you that I don't want to see you on Live or PSN because I do want to play against you. And if I ever do, I hope that you have learned to respect others. Because I want every person to experience the enjoyment that I get out of playing video games. No one should feel scared, insecure, or threatened if they want to play a video game. We should encourage everyone to play some form of video games. The bigger our community is, the better.

I'm probably one of the very few to read that wall of text. Bravo! My first game? "Hey you pikachu" my first mobile game? "That free fall parachute on my mom's old ass Nokia phone, Pokemon on gameboy color and frogger on GBA.
PsylentKiller  +   715d ago

Lol. ATi_Elite's comment just set me off.
I can't believe I forgot about my Gameboy. I still have it with my my favorite game, Ghostbusters. My first phone game was Snake on that brick called Nokia.

Now, in regards to the article, I expect to see a revival of what made CoD 4 so great. We were promised that MW3 was a return to its roots but I don't believe it kept that promise. Not fully anyways. I do believe that CoD feels Battlefield nipping at its heels and I response created a game to keep the on top of their throne.
The graphics may not be greatly improved but the audio is going to be the thing that people are going to be pleasantly surprised by. CoD has that solid feel like it's built to last. That feeling is due to its graphics, framerate, gameplay, and now the audio.
WeAreLegion  +   715d ago
I agree with some of that, but COD3 sucked. Hard.
venom06  +   716d ago
dont expect ANYTHING different than whats on the current gen systems... there wont be ANY more players, the frame rate wont be ANY better, the graphics MAY be better... that's about it... people might as well just play it on the 360 and PS3.. the next gen experience really, really wont be that much different.. this article is STUPID.. everything that's mentioned is on the current gen systems.. there's nothing mentioned that you'll get ONLY by getting a next-gen console.. all of this can be experience on the 360.. pathetic fanboy article..

I can expect to see the same rehash as always Lol
BobBelcher  +   715d ago
Here's to come:
- New engine
- Same core dynamics that has been seen in other CoD games

They'll adjust to the competition, but they'll continue to cater to their consumers by keeping the game basically the same. Which, BTW, is not a bad thing (even though core gamers A.K.A. hipsters) would say otherwise. Why fix something that isn't broken? You wanna know who 'fixes' things that aren't broken? Capcom. Anybody remember the Survival-Horror game (turned action/multiplayer) Resident Evil? Yeah. That's what happens when you f*ck w/ something that's okay the way it is.

People want CoD to be more like BF and I say "why?"

FPS/military multiplayer... That's as much as the two have in common... But that's just the basic outline of the games. Both games cater to two entirely different experiences and I, personally, will be getting both (as well as Titanfall) to fit all my FPS/Multiplayer needs.

Louise: Supposed to be sleeping, but I hear a scratching noise, so who knows.

Gene: Sounds like he's eating tonight's lasagna in bed. We'll have to wash his sheets tomorrow.

Tina: I hear thrashing and kissing sounds, so she's probably sleeping.
Ashunderfire86  +   715d ago
What to expect? Hmmm....Fish A.I., Dog A.I. taking down a helicopter, quick scoping, overpowered perks, bad respawns, unbalancing guns, Xbox brand getting expensive DLC first, Every Call of Duty version run good, including the PS4 version(assuming), but not the PS3 version, and more of the same every year like a Madden game.

Killzone Shadowfall and Battlefield 4 together will own this game. Even the most dedicated fans will grow tire of this game. Its true! My friend was a big fan of Call of Duty, now he refused to get another Call of Duty, and he is not the only one who thinks the same way.

Call of Duty with its same old Modified Quake Engine since 1999, will be the shit maker it is, while better games like Destiny, Titanfall, and The Division alone will destroy this game next year. Call of Duty needs to take a break. Call of Duty better reinvent itself are people will stop buying as the preorders get low every year, so Activision, keep thinking that its the result of next gen coming, when that is just further from the truth. Grand Theft Auto 5 has already beaten you Call of Duty! Keep thinking that Rockstar's baby will lose momentum, when GTA 5 will update to an even better game with add-ons equivalent to DLCs. Rockstar proves that you don't need to make a shit maker every year to be successful. Call of Duty you are the delayer of games(cuff Watchdogs), but next year not anymore. You will be delayed, because hopefully the developers know by that time, that you can't keep making a shit maker every year.

I had to go hard on this fans! I had to go hard!
PsylentKiller  +   715d ago
Unfortunately, you are wrong about CoD becoming unsuccessful next year or the year after that. Activision will milk this franchise until it is dry but I don't believe the cash cow is going to run dry anytime soon. People love this game and a lot of people at that. The just appeals to the casual gamer and there are a lot more casuals than hardcore gamers. People like the fact that CoD is an easy game to pick up and play for ten minutes. This is important because many people cannot play for extended periods of time. It is good, quick, mindless (can also be strategic) fun. Sometimes you just want to play checkers because you don't want to have to deal with the complexity of chess.

Edit: grammar

Just stating my opinion whether the majority agrees or not I stand by it. Heck you didn't think GTA 5 appeal to casual too, cause it reach a billion in just 3 days? This means that many of those gamers are also casual that also like other games, not just Call of Duty. Titanfall will be the new easy casual to play game next year, with the same two game designers that left Infinity Ward(Guys that made Call of Duty). It will have parkour and robots mix with shooting! Don't forget Mirror Edge remake(possible Multiplayer), and Stars Battlefront Remake! It will destroy the shit maker out of Call of Duty.

Just look at Titanfall:


Look at Destiny:

If Call of Duty still looks like this and more of the same every year, then it will fail bad:

It´s NOT the Next-Gen call of duty. I played it already and it´s the same COD as last few years. Same engine, same textures, same movements, same GUI.
