Call of Duty: Casual or Hardcore?

I have noticed many people trying to assert that the games in the Call of Duty franchise are “casual,” as opposed to “hardcore.” What is it that catalyzes this observation for those people? Is it really necessary to differentiate between the two? No clear boundaries exist for the definition of a casual vs. hardcore game; the distinction is merely subjective. However, there are certain aspects which make it easier to tell them apart, and there are games that in this sense are easier to distinguish. The distinction has become increasingly relevant, since it is hard to argue that the overall difficulty of video games has not decreased over the years. What are the characteristics of a casual and a hardcore game(r)? And after analyzing the various aspects of each, would we, as gamers, collectively conclude that Call of Duty is a casual game?

Either way, this game is going down once Battlefield 3 comes out

Could be, but this article is less about call of duty and more about casual vs. hardcore from a broader perspective.

TastyTreats2809d ago

i see i see. well in that case, casual gamers can't compete in shooters

dangert122809d ago

i wpuld say more casually arcadey
hardcore would be halo 3 with its rank system and balance plus physics

Call of Duty: Casual or Hardcore?

neither it sucks :)

I'm proud to say that I traded Black Ops in this weekend for Tiger Woods 12 on PS3, even though the Move controls suck.

Well done! COD has remained unchanged since Modern Warfare. Hope its the last you buy. MW 2 was my last. I realised that it was the same game renamed, with the same mediocre campaign and broken online.

Lindsey2809d ago

I'm done with shooters in general for a while, except Killzone 3.

Seferoth752809d ago

And Tiger Woods has remained unchanged since like the first one really. They traded one crappy franchise for another. Great job.

NeloAnjelo2809d ago

Awesome!
I've logged over 700 hrs in Killzone 2's Multiplayer. But I'm doing a post grad now so there's no way I can spend that much time on KZ3 :(

I still get a few games in on the weekends. See you in the Warzone sometime!

I don't believe I have seen very many casual fans on Black ops when I had it.

If you guys want "casual" cod gameplay...then stay the hell away from me and my teammates lol. Theres more hardcore players on there than people think....but theres also a MILLION ten year olds yapping into my headset.

RioKing2809d ago

As for the game...I guess it's casual? I can't wait for BF3 though, then I'll compare cod to another fps.
