New ideas aren't always money ideas, but in this case of Call of Duty, something new is just what the Vietnam medic ordered.
Honestly i think sledgehammer's advance warfare is a better idea. people would have wrote off the vietnam game as another generic cod, regardless of its actual story and gameplay
theyre doing the same with aw anyways, haters gonna hate
Modern day is far more generic than Vietnam. AW is even more so
I disagree i think a vietnam game would have been welcomed as only a few were ever made and AW looks the same as every cod since cod4 just reskinned. I know im writing off AW and wont buy it but I would have bought a vietnam title
People were tired of WW2 and wanted something modern, now people are tired of that and want something different, we are going full circle.
What I want is diversity. Now we are only getting one thing for 6 years and then the circle starts again. Why can't we have a mix of all these different time periods so we don't get bored to them one after another...
back in my days everybody was sick of WW2 and Vietnam shooters. now they want them again? i know space warfare will be played off like a bad ripoff of (popular space shooter here) or a modern shooter like (popular modern shooter here) its too the point of why bother with it if its been said and done? alright gonna step off my (captain) soap box
Vietnam would be a hard game for COD to focus on. Since it was a war America never won.
True. But, IMO, that would make for some of the greatest fodder for plot and story. Much like the reality of the real war, it would be about the cost of war. As opposed to the idea of winning a war. Of all of the wartime scenarios, I think that Vietnam just oozes that since of defeat and insurmountable challenge that would prove excellent as a plot device.
No America didn't win the war, but those who lobbied for the war won big time! Tons of money to be made when boots are on the ground, and that's all that matters......to them.
It was never declared a war. Vietnam was a police action. But as iceman06 said, it would be a great place for a story. There so many great Vietnam stories and movies to pull inspiration from.
Shouldn't have been there to fix Frances problem in the first place
Politically the Vietnam War was a loss. However if you are one that bases wins and losses off of bodies, the US KDR was like 20:1 or something ridiculous like that
Vietnam would be cool, sorta like black Ops. But what would be awesome like COD4 was is probably a Desert Storm COD with similar weaponry to COD4, trying to capture Saddam and stuff.
I wish they would release it. What I would love to do is, go back to the CoD 2 days. That game was a complete blast. Nothing more satisfying that sneaking up on the campers and thwacking them with the gun butt...what about launching grenades in the beginning and throwing them like 2 football fields and getting kills...man I miss those days of simplicity. I loved the M1 and the Kar. Shame its now over done with the newer CoDs
Modern Warfare Remastered Collection or Nazi Zombie Collection
I'm pretty sure that there aren't that many games about the Vietnam War. I do recall playing Lost Patrol on the Atari but that was a long time ago. Don't think it was strictly a shooter though.
With WaW being rumored for next year, am I the only one who is disappointed that we're not seeing BlackOps 3? I really liked BO2.
