Paul writes, "Black Ops is receiving a lot of hate from gamers who seemingly refuse to even try the game. is there legit reasoning behind this hate or is this the fallout of the disappointment known as Modern Warfare 2? In what was surely one of the biggest hype campaigns of all time, we were told COD 6 would be the FPS to end all other FPS titles. Instead, come November we were met with COD 4.5 and it seemed even worse than COD 4 to many folks due to its balancing and hacking issues. Many gamers predicted MW2 would be like this, but most of their complaints and the signs they pointed out were ignored by the bigger crowds. Black Ops is selling great, don't doubt that. But it would seem that group of pre-release doubters has grown and saw fit to label Black Ops a terrible game, without even playing it."
