It's Tuesday and that means another entry in PlayStation LifeStyle's top five video series. In this week's episode, PSLS takes a look at the top five reasons why people hate the Call of Duty franchise.

i play lots of cod its all server issues for me dedicated servers would fix it but it will never happen
the reasons people hate this game is because of the pathetic favoritism is gets from the fanboy reviewers @ IGN and the other "wannabe IGN" review sites... ANY OTHER FPS GAME THATS RELEASED EVERY YEAR, with very few changes year to year, would get slaughtered in the so-called "press".... Yet, CoD skates through and doesn't get as bashed for few changes, as it should be.
I hate it ever since it became futuristic. MW3 and Black Ops 1 were the last that had my attention. I can't deal with the overwhelming amount of killstreaks, and the fact they removed barebones pro playlists. Well, I think they did. Didn't see it in the last cod I played. Think it was bo2? I've grown up and now play Arma. A sim game which is way more fun. I wish they had a game mode in cod now with no killstreaks, modern theme or older. Then I'd buy cod again. Until then. Meh.
Go back to WWII and I'm day one. Until then, I'll skip this every year. Played AW, and I had fun. But until big changes (ie: AW), I won't look at this again.
AW just added a new mechanic, no big changes really. Still the same game with bad spawns, quickscoping, lag, spawn killing and overfilled with killstreaks. Bring back set 3 killstreaks, and give guns actual recoil please!
AW completely changed the way the game is played with movement though. I agree everything else stayed the same though. The movement made a huge difference in the style of gameplay you had to run. I started out with classic playlist also, and then moved on to boost play. Huge difference there.
I am a gamer...I do not hate Call of Duty. I consider Modern Warfare one of the best games of last generation. With one of the most powerful moments of any game of any generation. The multiplayer was great fun and the controls are better than any other shooter I know of.
Dedicated servers! As much as i want to play zombies i cant support this disrespect of gamers. For Christ sake.... the gears remake has dedicated servers... i wish everyone would hold off on this title till they get dedicated servers
Because it's considered generally "cool" to hate popular stuff.
Same game over and over again
Because it's taking sales and fanfare away from the more "deserving" games? In other words, good old-fashioned jealousy.
I still have fun with the series. To me, if it's fun I'll play it. Even if it doesn't change much and all that, it's still fun to me at times. I just don't bother to buy the games day one like I used to.
