Call Of Duty: Ghosts dominates the UK Charts for the third consecutive week.
Console gamers.. Cant get enough of COD.
We went round at Eurogamer asking what game people were looking forward to the most and most people said COD. Kind of telling really. We made a video of it but I was too lazy to upload it -_-' This doesn't surprise me but I'm hearing more and more voices of discontent from the more casual gamers about it. Their contention is that its the same old thing over and over (why its taken them this long to figure it out I don't know) rather than the lackluster visuals or poor gameplay choices etc.
The day i will buy a next gen console only to play a yearly franchise will never come!!!! Games with originality is the reason why i keep playing video games.
@Abzdine Yeah and it pains me to say that I think 70-80% of people queuing at the PS4 launch wanted to buy FIFA 14 lol. I've got that on the X1 and I'm struggling to see what's next-gen about it.
yes, especially when FIFA on PC doesn't require much HP to run correctly. i deleted the demo from PS4 it sucks. waiting for PES14 or 15 or whatever they might call it.

A game like COD Ghosts (practically a rehash of previous COD games + a dog + fish that move out of the way when you get near them (not trolling)) sells millions. A original innovative epic game like tearaway, miles better than COD Ghosts, made by way better and way more talented developers Media Molecule, sells nowhere near as much. This is what is wrong with the gaming industry.
FPS is far and away the most prolific genre, of course the poster boy for FPS is going to be more popular. I don't think there's anything "wrong with the industry", rather your expectations. For the record, I'd play tearaway over Ghosts.
Fishy you nailed it. Now my personal opinion is COD is a re-hash, that hasn't changed much and I believe this year's versions were rushed due to next gen console releases but after a few of my friends bought it for X1, and been urging me to get it (I've had BF4 since launch) I felt the itch to play with them (couldnt party up for some reason= lots of free for all) and after playing it this weekend it's YES still COD but it's FUN...I wish I didn't like it but I did. As much as I like other games, I think the draw for me is that COD is one of the very few games I can just pick up n play for months and months before I get bored of it.
i totally agree. all cod games after WAW are shit, and rehashed. it does not help that the COD community is filled with children and casuals. i do not know why do they gobble this shit year after year. Here is a changelog to every COD game that is out there past WAW, and the future COD games: -"New" improved AI -Slightly better graffix -new soundtrack -a few new weapons and maps. -rehash up the ass (remember those mocaps not too long ago?) -i could continue this list all day, you know. And dat wolf DLC oh god why. At least now i think at least some COD players notice with their activision brainwashed brains finally figure out their "Game" is shit. Don't even get me started wit their MW3 xXLeGiTqUiCkSCOPEzzXx [[MLG]] ~360 NOSCOPEZZ~ .:1337:. -gamertags.
WaW was the only of the series' multiplayer that I dedicated a lot of time to. I thought it was phenomenal back in the day. Played a bit of BLOPS 2, though. Also found it pretty fun, though I drifted from it rather fast. Still just mess around with bots from time to time though.
it doesn't deserve it
I don't hate the series. I really enjoy the Treyarch releases to this day, and I played a lot of the singleplayer for the original MW's. That said, this and MW3 are the worst of the series and Ghosts truly does not deserve people's money.
I borrowed & finished the SP. Pretty fun. I didn't go much on the MP as I have B4 for that. But you can't blame people for buying it. It's fun but more importantly it didn't need 16 patches & counting to actually play it like its main competitor.
I get why people like cod I used to be one of them, but are all of them so stupid to not realize that they release an identical game yearly. The lifespan of this game is pretty much less then a year now. There are so many better games out their that actually innovate and are much fun and deserve more attention.
People in the UK like to criticize our gun laws and right to bear arms and say US Americans are all stupid redneck gun totting idiots yet they are hypocrites themselves and buy American military type games every year like "COD" and then act like situations like this are an exception to them? Really?
I have zero problems with your right to wear Tee Shirts. Nor a problem with your Sasquatch arms.
