6 Reasons We’re All Sick Of Call of Duty

"This past month saw the release of the fourteenth Call of Duty game, and although that’s including spin-offs and mobile apps, it still serves to point out just how much Activision have ridden this cash cow extremely successfully since the first release way back in 2003 . COD is the only franchise now headed up by two tag-teaming developers, ensuring an annual release schedule and giving whichever team has just finished one year off to think of inventive new ways to blow things up in your face.

Now, blow things up in your face they most definitely do, yet for all the franchise’s use of real-world military weaponry and quasi-authentic terminology, subsequent instalments now resemble something as hollow and trotted-out as a Michael Bay flick, hurtling from one set-piece to the next with barely a thought towards any appropriate context filling in just who it is you’re gunning down." (Call of Duty Series, Culture, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Well the sales numbers on this pathetic series of pap seem to say otherwise which is most unfortunate as it negates the pressure on these rehash developers to produce any innovation or advancements in the series. These slim-wit gamers keep lining up for it; not surprising really. If this is what they like, this is what they like. Sure isn't my cup of tea.

Go back to WWII already and maybe, just maybe, after so many years, I'll pick up a CoD title once again. If these twats want my money they had better come up with a BRAND NEW formula aside from the pathetic slo-mo moments, extremely linear, copy paste, laughable douchey bro-ski characters, and rehashed gameplay mechanics shit they have been puking out as of late. I have more gripping and fresh moments playing solitaire on my phone. Not holding my breath for you CoD.
