Call of Duty Ghosts excellent effects, why the hate?

Many criticise the COD franchise for rehashing the same engine, the same sort of content, and the same gameplay. However, there are some impressive graphical moments in the single player campaign which on PC at least look fantastic. Is it just cool to hate on the COD series regardless of quality.

COD is what is wrong with corporations taking over the games industry. Making sequels as cheap as possible, as quickly as they can, to grab more money. There is no innovation, just renovation. Nothing in Ghosts could really be considered next gen. I am playing through it now, on the PS4, and I dont see much beyond the higher resolution textures, that couldnt be done on the Xbox 360 or PS3.

The gameplay is the same, no physics, no destruction... Just the same tired point and shoot, copy and paste gameplay. Not to mention, a 4 hour single player campaign.

COD is a money machine, plain and simple. And, until gamers make their voices known by speaking with their wallets, it will remain so.

Look on the bright side, they're having to boast about copies shipped to retail as opposed to actual game sales.

If people didn't like them, they wouldn't buy them.

I mean absolutely no disrespect to you or your opinion but in my eyes it seems like some people inaist on bashing this series just because it is the "cool" thing to do. I mean look at it from my perspective, you say "oh, the effects and graphics are terrible" then when someone points this out suddenly graphics aren't the problem, now it's the gameplay you don't like, I just have a relatively difficult time understanding your opinions on this.

Go read the very first comment on this article by thextreme1, everything he said is spot on.

Original poster, did you even watch the video? Did you play Crysis in 2007?

This is a laughable defence of CoD.

The fish are sprites for yoda's sake! that shouldn't be happening this gen let alone a next gen title.

Yes it's true that it was designed with this gens engines and tech, but still Halo 4 and Uncharted 3 looks better than this ugly duckling.

CoD is like the Michael Bay of gaming. No style, no substance, just explosions, explosions everywhere.
