Dear Activision, You Are The Devil

Ever since Activision launched Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007, Activision has been digging itself a hole ever since. With the horrible lag that was found in just about every multiplayer match of Call of Duty 4 to the milking of the Call of Duty franchise to death and beyond. Activision has been a disgrace to gaming industry. (Culture, Industry, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

So.. is this our activision hating#32 article now?
xXRight3yeXx  +   1552d ago
F Activision. I hate MW2 now. Played it for about 340 hours before stopping and now i can't continue because if i do, i feel disgusted.

I agreed with most of your article.
Except when you said "That’s why you should stop supporting Activision and support publishers like Codemasters, Ubisoft, Atlus, EA, Sega and more."

Ubisoft, EA and Sega are almost or just as poisonous to the industry as Activision is.

Sega with their Bayonetta port, Cutting Content from Yakuza 3 and various other stunts.

EA with their rehash after rehash, and their DLC bullcrap. Although EA is quickly redeeming themselves be supporting new IPs and new developers.

Ubisoft with their DLC bullcrap, their PC stunts, and a few other shady tactics.

Let's play Pyramid:
I take all your money
I don't like to make new IPs
I screw developers
I overcharge our products
I like to turn our developers against their fans
Most of our top franchises are recycled
EA was our teacher. We have dethroned them since.

Anyone?

They also need to sell Vigilante 8. That XBLA remake was a disgrace.
AliTheBrit19  +   1552d ago
I never thought I would be one of those guys

But I will never give Activision my money again.

If they publish a game that I really do want, I will buy it second hand off eBay.

F*ck them.
tdogchristy90  +   1552d ago
I could not agree more. I love call of duty for the story aspect but activision is done it in, I will never buy anything from them again. If I do pick up MW3 it will be to keep the story intact and will be a second hand buy so they don't get my money.

I would prefer Activision to had a better protocol and enjoy the huge success they ahd in a legit manner
Is also good to see that wrong management eventually gives bad results, so that other publishers take notice that being too greedy is the way of the losers, Activision is going were it belongs, to mediocre status

Well Activision got what they wanted with MW2.

Unfortunately majority of the ppl dont know, its upto the gamers to spread the word on this companies tactics.

I predict their greed will be their undoing. They will milk COD just like they milked all their other franchises (which hardly sell like compared to what they used to). People will get tired of COD sooner or later, then Activision will be left with nothing.

ActivisionBlizzard's top money maker

1. World of Warcraft
2. Call of Duty series
3. Guitar Hero

(find it on google) these 3 games supply ActivisionBlizzard's money. roughly composed up to 90% of it. if one of these games falls off the popularity map, they're in deep sh!t.

Let's all step off the soapbox and acknowledge Activision is no different than any other games company, outside the success of course.

"Let's all step off the soapbox and acknowledge Activision is no different than any other games company, outside the success of course."

No different? Really? Did you forget about the Harmonix fiasco? While all companies are obviously out to make a profit, Activision is the only one that will rape your mom and kill your dog in order to do it.

Frankly, I feel sorry for those who bent over with their pants down while forking over $15 for Stimulus. The rest of us are laughing at you.

I think what Activision is doing with Call of Duty is great! The less we see of that game the better.
DarkBlood  +   1552d ago

Sadly, they won't change. Why?

Because 2.5 million consumers just proved Activision right last week with that mappack. Whine all you want... until you start voting with your $$$$, things will not change. Period.
ForROME  +   1552d ago
Agreed, DOWN WITH ACTIVISION! and anything they produce I refuse to purchase
DigitalAnalog  +   1552d ago
Dear ACTIVISION,
I hate ALL of your games and yet I own NONE of them.
