JunkExplorer: I’m here to inform you why you should not buy the next Call of Duty game! Have a Look.
Have a look? lol nope.
I don't need to look i've already decided to get it day 1 probably the same 10 reasons as every other year anyway.
It will sell over 20 million copies anyway, ghosts already sold over 20m and its still selling well.
Why the hate, just to hate?
The hate is not aimed at the game but its community.
As if the CoD community is REALLY that much worse than any other FPS's.... No seriously, I've gotten just as bad of wanna be gangsters, squeaking 13 year olds and tryhards in games like Halo and Killzone. Hell, even Team Fortress 2 had more than a few douche canoes who just could NOT admit that what they were doing was playing a GAME...you know...for fun.
@Swiggins Yes it's true you get your average idiots in other games but none so prominently on CoD... it seems to attract the worst of us.
I disagree, the CoD community might seem like it's got more idiots than the average but that's only because of how big it is. Believe me, I used to be a poster on the Battlelog forums....I've never lost so much faith in humanity so fast. >.>
@Swiggins (last bubble) Battlelog... is that Battlefield 4? never heard of it... what makes it bad compared to the rest?
I'll buy it if it appeals to me, thanks.
Oh, trust me i won't. I don't even need 10 reasons
I don't care what the game title is or who makes it. But to launch a campaign against buying a game that no one has played yet screams retarded
Nope but had it been their 3rd person Vietnam game.I would have probably bitten :/ http://youtu.be/CMGx3KToV7Q
Cod is first person, always should be! 3rd person would sell 20 copies!
Like this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Man I miss those lines of games :(
Watched the trailer for it, and really it was just okay... Just didn't seem to have any "wow" factor. I loved the story campaigns in MW1 and MW2. They've been going downhill since then though in my opinion. They'll have to show me more than Kevin Spacey to get me to WANT to play their game. Show me something new, original.
Still buying it thanks
You know they are running out of ideas when they use words like 'Advanced", are they releasing this game on the Gameboy Advance?
its hard to say that you ran out of ideas when its your first.
If I like it I'll buy it.
"8. Call of Duty does not appeal to the older generation no more..." Did a fifth grader write this, or was it simply somebody with poor English skills and/or little to no journalistic talent?
I hate to sound like "a hater" but I'd have to agree with you. None of the claims written here are backed up by any substantial supporting statements. "It just seems to be the same rehashed stuff, what we need is a new game with brand new ideas that feels fresh not a re- textured game." What, in the footage they've shown, makes it seem "rehashed" or "retextured"? Why was this article approved, but an article my colleague has written about making the plunge into multi-platform gaming (and several other great articles out there) not? I'm all for freedom to speech, but when I see something like this get approved (and hits), it infuriates me, especially considering the legitimate work that so many writers out there put into their articles or opinion pieces. Sorry, but this article is poorly written, and based on empty statements. Hell, even every bullet point is unnecessarily bolded. - Rant over. I feel gypped out of 2 minutes I'll never get back u_u
people shouldn't be so blindly excited for this game IMO, every time I read a comment about ghosts it is never good. And past games have not taken this franchise any steps forward. But everyone is getting hyped over the trailer and because kevin spacey is in it. After being burned so many times how can just that be enough to warrant another purchase again.
If it is good and have good rating or good word of mouths like Modern Warfare 1, sure I'll buy it. If it sucks like Ghost, then I'll pass. Simple logic with gaming.
This hate is all for nothing because we know the same people hating the game will buy it. It's hilarious! There's no fps that matches the cod formula! None! Many have tried but failed! Ghosts was trash and we and they know it. This looks totally different no matter what you keep telling yourself!
How can you tell someone not to buy it based off one trailer 6 months before release?
Classy stuff right here 20 bucks says they will still ask for a review copy. The call of duty hate is tiresome.
to be fair the COD fanboys who support the copy and paste effort is tiresome
So people who like to spend THEIR own money on something they enjoy is tiresome? Give me a break dude. Nobody goes around calling you what you should or shouldn't spend your money on. Grow up.
I never said anything about spending money but really how can you keep buying the same game over and over again and how about you grow up and accept that if some one doesn't like COD that their opinion
"to be fair the COD fanboys who support the copy and paste effort is tiresome" Support would equal buying the game no? Games are bought with money. I didn't say anything about people who don't like call of duty are stupid or anything along those lines. Just like any gamer, they are invested in franchises. Who are you to call them fanboys because they like the same thing?
To be fair all I saying s why support a franchise when most of there work is a copy and paste effort. There a difference between a gamer and a COD fan I think a lot of gamers have started to wise up and have stop supporting the copy and paste effort so they are moving onto other games like BF4 etc (you can tell who the ex COD players are on BF4) (but that a whole different subject) but your also going to get your hardcore fans who would buy it every year.
He likes COD3 ? yeah this shit is click bait as fck
i've never bought a CoD on any platform why would i now?
This guy is a bit COD 3 obsessed. Why doesn't he just go and play battlefield if he wants classes and vehicles etc? I was one of the few guys that stuck to the boycott MW2 and haven't bought an activision game since and this won't change but this list is just awful. It's laughable he's made a list like this after just one trailer. He firstly says futuristic won't work based on one game then calls the series out for being stale. He just seems like a person that has outgrown COD yet isn't really aware of the alternatives. The only thing I might agree with is a return to WW2, not necessarily by COD, but FPS in general. It was completely overdone, then stopped just as completely.
Top 10 reasons to not buy COD: Advanced Warfare 1. Instead of showing MP gameplay because that's what really most of us play, they insist on showing in game movies instead, hmmm. 2. Because the 10 before it promised something innovative. 3. No option to play in 3rd person view. 4. Quick scope! 5. Same guns! 6. No larger teams, example 25 vs.25 7. No co-op 8. No breakable surroundings 9. Timed exclusive going to...XBONE 1st. 10. Finally....it's Activision!
and in case you want even more reasons not to buy COD 11)Lagg (yes that a big problem when online can mean the difference between a kill or death) 12)Very poor hit detection (at times you can hit some one around a corner) 13)Over the top aim-assist (just look at qs etc and see how over the top it is) 14)No-scoping (ruins the game) (snipers are ment for long range) 15)The knife being the most powerful weapon on the game,( I didn't know getting swiped across the foot can kill you) 16)Small boring maps (time for some new maps) 17)6V6 game modes (time for more players in game modes) 18)There needs to be tanks, (they where in WAW so why not anymore), 19)Stupid perks like commando, unlimited sprint etc, (I didn't know you could sprint for a unlimited time or that you could extend you melee attack) 20) 80% of the weapons would of been in previous COD's (time for some new weapons or least more variety), 21) Still not being able to see your body or legs when looking down (you could see your legs in the first Halo) (and what the point of customization if you can't see it) 22) A new game engine (yes it's time for a new engine) 23) reduce the range you can throw c4 (it might as well be classed as a grenade how far you can throw it at the moment) 24) Dynamic destruction (this would bring a whole new way how COD is played and reduce the number of campers etc) 25) Actually ban the cheaters and hackers (I sick and fed up with cheaters ad hackers ruining the game for everyone else because they have no skill of there own) 26) It COD so it going to be another copy and paste effort
The author writes as if he's played AW already...his arguments are purely speculation. Is it founded on the COD track record, of course. But this installment has the looks and sounds intriguing. Hoping the story is well fleshed out and they push the graphics as far as the PS4 (and X1) is concerned. Actually looking forward to this game!
