Last month Activision and Treyarch showed off a couple of minutes of the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and despite it only being a relatively short clip people have gone mental for the next installment in the yearly franchise.
My faith in the gaming community is dwindling.
Why because ppl love call of duty? I never understood the huge hate toward call of duty(on the internet). Gamers surely know what they want I mean look at that yooka laylee game it's already funded. Point is call of duty is a great game to many
If you played call of duty 1,2 and big red one you would understand the hate.
My faith in the gaming community dwindled when I started coming to N4G.
@usmc Who cares about the gaming community or what ever that is. Play the games you enjoy and others will pay what they enjoy. I will never understand people who like jrpgs but whatever not the end of the world.
@USMC_POLICE The hate isn't from 1/2/BR1 being superior or anything but genre fatigue, the series really didn't start see a ton of hate until MW2.
and im disappointed.
Should I feel bad for enjoying Call of Duty every year?
Well. That's Call of Duty for ya. =/
This is a 'good' thing... Black Ops III isn't coming to 360/PS3, which means the 'new' consoles are finally starting to dominate. Those who are still developing for last-gen should take note.
Activision's legendary marketing team/hype machine does it again.
Yup, and it will be a slightly modified version of last years game, as the cycle continues.
See I don't get this Advanced warfare was too much change according to many so when they actually go back that's bad? They can't win, change it? People hate it, keep it the same? Oh same old call of duty. Like what do you want them to do? Make A Unreal tournament mod for next year's COD? Counter strike plays pretty similar throughout its iterations but nobody complains.
Looking forward to COD players calling Deus Ex a black ops 3 rip off...
Really? Come on people aren't you all sick of the same game year after year? Go play Wolfenstein or something rich in story and gameplay with fresh ideas. After not playing a Cod since black ops 1 I thought I'd give advanced warfighter a shot. Returned it within two days. It was still the same boring shouting, shoot, explosion, move forward and rince and repeat. BORING!!!!!!
Call of Duty it's a huge success, like it or not.
Even though I haven't touched a new cod after black ops1 , it's really annoying to see constant biased hate for this franchise. It has a proven formula that has survived the course of time , many people enjoy it so ofcourse they are not gonna change the core formula and keep on delivering new games with small tweaks. You are NOT more of a gamer if you dislike it or act that way.
It is like one of those Transformers movies. No matter how bad it is, it will always sell.
that decline though
U know why i buy cod every year??? Cuz its fun to play!!!when u finish work and u wanna calm down just play some rounds with friends and enjoy the gaming time!!! Stop hating on games man just move on!!!!
Would you look at that, Call of Duty is dead! /s. It probably will come out on PS3/360 - the franchise is too big to bypass the millions of owners of the old gen consoles, Fifa is a prime example of making the most out of the consoles till the bitter end. Neither 360 or PS3 is at that stage yet.
Lol Call of Duty has still got it 12 years later... That's honestly very impressive... Regarding Black Ops 3, I'm kinda worried, but I did change my mind to pre-order so I can play the beta. If I don't like it, can simply cancel the pre-order...
Listening to "Mad World" in my head....
It's to be expected. Each year COD sells a ton, it was bound to happen again this time around. I don't know when COD will ever stop being a top seller, and I don't know if it will ever stop being a top selling franchise. If the want is there, it'll continue to sell like crazy.
