Five games that are more 'Star Wars' than Call of Duty

Examiner.com
"Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has recently made the statement that, “The Call of Duty franchise is a force of nature. I think it is the closest thing this generation has to a Star Wars. I think it’s unique and bigger than any musical act or any movie franchise in that capacity.” While we appreciate Mr. Kotick’s enthusiasm for his product, we don’t believe there’s been a game that has come close to the cultural impact that Star Wars had when it was released in 1977. However, we humbly submit five game franchises that are more “Star Wars” than Call of Duty."

...I hope Kotick reads this. What a RIDICULOUS and DELUSIONAL statement that was.

Would we honestly expect anything less?

Neco5122831d ago

NO, no you shouldn't expect anything less from him

MxShade2831d ago

Aww man, you had to go feed Kotick's ego by giving him WoW. Not that it hasn't had an epic impact, just that it's another Activision-Blizzard game.

This is a very funny article but let's be honest, Mr. Kotick has done a great job in monetizing an industry. Without him, we'd all probably be playing Bubble Bobble on calculators. The man is an icon. A legend. A true hero.

MxShade2831d ago

Yes, to pencil-pushers who only see the bottom line.

Bubble Bobble owns. Haters gonna hate.

birchoff2831d ago

You're talking about him like he was Carmack(John), now HE's a legend.

Fishy Fingers2831d ago

I think he's simply referring to commercial success and awareness.

Downtown boogey2831d ago

Star Wars was first and foremost revolutionary and innovating. Call of Duty is nothing like that.

Fishy Fingers2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

Exactly, that's why I said success and awareness. Not revolutionary and innovating. He's talking about it's brand power.

TheAntiFanboy2830d ago

Even its brand power is lacking compared to Star Wars. By a long shot. Metal Gear, Halo, and Warcraft are far, FAR more recognizable and iconic than Call of Duty will ever be.
