Everyone hypes it up and then it fails come next year when they show the new cod same old stuff rinse and repeat
I think they should be using the decimal point system when naming these games since they really don't change much, just a minor update. The author was calling it MW2.1, but I think MW1.3 is more appropriate since MW2 wasn't much different from the first MW (so MW2 should actually be MW1.2).
i actually think its cute how the COD haters are all over the COD articles more than the people who actually like COD LOL
Correct me if im wrong though in that theory wouldn't mw2 be mw1.1 and mw3 be 1.2 hence mw being mw1.0?! Dont mean to nit pick.
yes agent, you already wrote MW1.3 in other MW3 posts. If you don't like the game why care about it so much?
no its MW3 and thats the only thing that has changed about the game. same graphics, same gameplay, same... you see where im going with this right?
Lol, you kidding? MW 2 was totally different than MW1. There is a reason why people loved MW1 and hate MW2, lol.
ya it would be patch 1.2 it's funny cuz some people are bout to drop 60 bucks on a content patch.
....but I'll just let people think of these.
There are no reasons to not be excited about Modern Warefare 3. Period. Be excited. Be very excited.
Agreed.. Just like many other major games, people hype em up and the 'fail.' Why do they 'fail?' Well, because people expect too much..
Same answer as every hater. Just copy and paste.
I'm hoping we will all be pleasantly surprised with MW3. I know everyone's getting sick of COD, constantly having the same thing thrown at you, and I feel it too.. but MW3 could come out a decent game. When COD4 came out it was widely thought to be a fantastic game, people loved it, everyone was excited to see how the sequel would pan out. Turns out it didn't really go as good as people hoped.. now a heck of a lot of gamers have lost faith in the series. Now it's important to note that you shouldn't really factor Treyarch's installments into this equation, the games are made my different developers, although some features will be copied from one and other. So with this in mind, gamers have lost faith in a franchise because one installment had a few flaws? To me this sounds a little silly. MW2 followed a game that people loved, a game that some people would call the best shooter of this generation, so Infinity Ward only had praise to go on when building a new game. It's a completely different story this time round, people have been complaining, giving negative feedback. So now Infinity Ward can build a game armed with the information that their last game was a shambles. This could have a very positive outcome. I'm still far more excited for BF3, I love the Battlefield series. I'm just not writing off the COD series yet, I'm remaining optimistic for the it's future. That is all.
And I'm still optimistic Santa Claus will come down my chimney next year, but in reality he won't.
1. [email protected] 2. COD-MW2 3. COD-BO 4. Read up 5. All of the above
Yea, it happens every year and I actually took some evidence to hold against my friends who are in denial. They were like "MW3 is gonna be BEAST!!" etc. And I'm like, you said that about MW2 and you literally broke the disc in half. You said that about Black Ops and you hate that to death. Now I'm just waiting for the MW3 bitching to commence so I can rub it in their faces.
Same game new maps is enough reason, its as if people are paying 60usd for a new DLC of maps lol. I would look at it as if it was a yearly 60usd subscription for most people anyways.... and people complain they wouldnt pay to play fps online haha, most people are essentially paying 5usd a month :P
The problem is that if you don't join them you become a social outcast online for a few months. I'd rather play Halo Reach, but ALL my friends will be playing this.
Well i personally dont play on console anymore, i play TF2(PC version of course) mostly for my online needs. Lovely game has everything i would want from a game: Hilariously funny Dedicated servers Dev support Community support Free mods and DLCs No control from companies like Sony or MS (where they can pull the plug when ever they like, like what happened with halo 2 on Xbox). Valve keeps the game fresh all the time, no point buying games like COD year on year plus DLCs, when you can get a game like TF2 for as low as 5usd when its on discount on Steam.
MW3 will be a good FPS. Both, single player and multiplayer modes will be awesome. The only thing that bothers me, is the outdated engine. I care much about graphics. And when I see a good game with bad graphics, I feel really sad. They earned enough money to be able to make a new engine. Or at least rent one.
With the money they made they can make at least 10 new engines for every year they release a cod game.
5!?!? haha i could give 50
Please, everyone wants to hear it.
As do I
*uh-oh* Is what I thought to myself reading this title...
Five reasons? Hah. I can do better. Here's the only one you need: pointless generic shooter.
yet another MW3 hate article, its cool to hate on popular things CoD has its flaws, even CoD and so does BF and every other FPS in the history of FPS, if there was a perfect one there'd be no point in changing the formula Personally i don't really give a crap one way other about the multi, I am sure it will be fun until someone figures out quick scoping or some other retarded mess that sucks the fun out the game, but i am totally in on the story, despite the plot holes i don't really feel the need to over analyze just because i need some reason to hate MW :) Bring on BF3 Bring on R3 Bring on Rage Bring on MW3 Bring on WW3! :D Gimme more things and people to shoot and i will be a happy camper :D
And there are 20 million reasons not to care about your opinion
20 million? Really? Can you name me 10? Because that 20 million number you mentioned seems like a lot.
He is talking about the 20 million copies sold of MW2 and the people who play don't care about these hate articles...
Not buying it.
stop kidding yourself you know you will
This seems to be the general consensus among COD fanboys around the net. Self assurance that people that genuinely hate what the franchise has become will still buy it because "Dude, it's COD." I think people might actually be wising up to the fact that the series is now garbage and there are far better shooters on the horizon.
Im certain im not going to buy it. Because with all the decent games coming out around the same time i will be busy and i doubt i will be able to afford it
With multiplat first person shooters contenders like Brink, Duke Nukem Forever, Homefront, Crysis 2, and Operation Flashpoint: Red River(can you believe no competitive multiplayer).....COD has no competition. Sadly, even Black Ops(I hate this game) is better than these games. Additionally, with more game modes and guns too. I still make love to MW2 behind Bad Company 2's back(don't tell her). But the only multiplat first person contenders I see this year is F.E.A.R. 3, RAGE, Dead Island, and Battlefield 3. Its not really shocking anymore when you look at the rest of the competition, because most of them suck. Portal is my mistress though(don't tell BC2 or MW2) PS. I'm excited and preordered F.E.A.R. 3, RAGE, Dead Island, and Battlefield 3 but how many of you guys like or play these other shooters as well? Additionally, I most excited about F.E.A.R. 3(I make sweet love to FEAR) but how many people are actually picking that game up? Because if you complain about COD and only pick up one of these four FPSs, what other shooter do you expect other gamers to play? I really doubt they'll be playing the same shooter over and over again. These four will keep me busy from MW3, I'm just saying. Gems, yeah gems, like Battlefield 3 come out every few years but COD comes out every year and manages to be better than most competition.
It's going to take a lot to get the majority of buyers not to be excited, and not purchase MW3. For all the hate the COD franchise gets on N4G, the love seems to be far greater outside this box. There was Black Ops at #6 in the top 10 for the month May, still hanging around after 7 months... that's stunning. I would consider MW3, only if it had a longer single player campaign, and if there was less of those damn respawing A.I.
I enjoy it for what it is, a game. I'm actually excited to see how they end the story. ( I know strange, I enjoy the single player experience.)
With all these articles popping up its like subliminal messaging buy me , all the hate for it makes me more intrested in buying as its cool to hate stuff these days cant wait to say i own it and hate it.
FIVE!!!!!! I can give you an unlimited amount of reasons.........
Live and let play. I have no interest in playing COD, not even if black ops was given to me for free or I had the beta code to MW3. That genre does not interest me, but I will not blatantly hate on it. Has it changed the face of gaming? It probably has, not necessarily for the best in my case. I am not sure if there is a direct connection with the lack of new IPs and innovative games due to the FPS mass popularity. I ,for one, prefer action/adventure games, beat them ups, and JRPGs. FPS's dont satisfy my gaming needs. We used to be saturated with RPGs in the ps1/ps2/saturn/dreamcast era...now it's the FPS. Will see where gaming takes us next? 3D and heightened sense of realism and interaction?
you lads need to calm down, this COD hate is getting ridiculous. honestly, not only will MW3 sell 20 million copies (outselling BF3 3:1 or maybe even 4:1) but score a very nice 8.5 to 9.5 range among the aggregate scores. COD is a winning formula, it excels at various aspects that other games have no matched as of yet. but like i said, this debate is pointless, COD will be successful with or without the haters.
I don't think people care how much it sells. Its true too many good games coming out in fall to extend my cod subscription.
I could care less how much it sells. That seems to be something else COD fanboys keep bringing up. "But it has sold this much!!" Yeah..because software/hardware sales this generation have absolutely shown quality.../sarcasm Some of the best quality software titles have been far below the sales radar, and that's downright sad. The mass public seems to be eating up cookie cutter mass produced casual bullcrap.
quality has a direct correlation with the greater sales and has very little to do with the lack of. uncharted 2, mass effect 2, bad company 2, modern warfare have also sold well because they are good games. modern warfare 2 and black ops are also very good games, otherwise a million ppl wouldn't get on it every night to play it. they play COD because the way the game plays, you get in a lobby play 20 mins with your buddies and get out, i mean the game is loaded with features and options. haters need to look beyond blind bias and accept something they hate doesn't necessarily mean its bad. COD sells precisely because of this accessibility, to play -have fun and get on with your life.
I would say my own reason not to get too excited for this MW3 --- The Hurricane Battlefield 3 is hitting the globe ---
Well if the amount of awards given by video game websites at E3 this year are any indication of which game most people are excited about, then BF3 is without a doubt one of them. 31 nominations. http://www.battlefield.com/... MW3 nominations ?????
also unlike DICE, Activision do not know what the gamers want..... Dinosaurs.
MW3 Doesn't have Dinosaurs?!
I can give you 100 reason not to get excited.
Give me 20... ': /
I've got sixty reasons not to care, give or take five or six more for taxes.
Has N4G just become the Anti-Game Hype forum. Its all doom gloom and shit reviews of late!
This game died a while ago the monthly subscription was the final nail on the coffin.
What monthly subscription? You mean the one that is completely optional and doesn't influence ANYTHING to the real asepct of the gameplay? They are not forcing anyone to pay any additional money to play online. It seems to be a weak arguement.
My thought`s are pretty close to the authors,while I am not a COD hater as I also own all COD titles going back to COD2 I feel like deja vu when ever I see or play a new COD title. All that is different is the story`s,if at all there is one.I think the nearest anyone ever got to delivering a good campaign story was Treyarch’s Black Op`s. I for one will be pushing my money towards Battlefield`s 3 title,I may pick up COD3 at a VERY later date if I find any spare money down the back of my sofa.
I can't believe he used Battlefield 3 as an example. I am so sick and tired of that as an arguement. All we have seen for Battlefield 3 is gameplay from a top of the line PC, they have yet to show any console gameplay. No doubt that this game will beast on PC, but let's be real, the console version is going to be a slightly improved Bad Company 2. This same arguement was made for Bad Company 2/Modern Warfare 2, and look how that turned out. I am all for both games and I am sure they both will appeal to many gamers, but lets be honest, the writings on the wall. Or should I say the writing is on the pre-order charts, as MW3 is already vastly ahead of BF3. Personally, I am only really pumped for Gears 3.
Hello boys and girls, Are you sad,lonely, or depressed? Do you go to bed at night, and wake up in the morning? Then, boy! Do I have a game for you! For a small price of $70,(and a subscription for the other half of the game's online play), Modern Warfare 3 is the answer to all your problems! Call 0400-BULLSH*T now, and get a free 2-hour multiplayer session...withOUT a patch! Yaaaaaay! Queue here-> :D :D :D :D :D :D :D I'm just joking, hey! Im no troll ; )
its sad.. since CoD4 (one of the best FPS of all time), COD has just dropped in innovation. Same thing over and over. No drastic engine remakes. Imagine CoD with a much better engine... it would provide for an even more massive amount of new players to the franchise. I think the new norm for FPS is having a good stand-alone multiplayer, co-op of some sort, and an engaging multiplayer
Some might get excited some might not, there's no point in discussing it. I read the whole article and agree totally with the guy. I'm in a similar position with him - i played cod since it was released in 2000s i guess until Black Ops. I bought every single one of them, however MW2 and Black Ops disappointed me a lot and made me regret bıying them - and I agree totally with his ideas. I also played Battlefield since BF2 and I think BFBC2 is hell of a game, the best online FPS game for the last 15 months or so. And seeing what they are doing with BF3... If you are an unbiased FPS gamer your jaw should drop when you watch BF3. It looks awesome. And to think about BFBC2, how it amazed me, I get much more excited with BF3, and many agree with me. I'm no hater, I'm a gamer. I buy the game that is BETTER !!! I don't care about COD, BF, Medal of Honor or other... I don't care about the name, the quality matters. And since BF3 is gonna kill MW3, and since MW developers turned many COD fans into COD haters ( this is an article worth writing for , how it happened and why it happened ) and since COD is still bringing up the same food to our plates by a little make up and still trying to get their greedy hands in our pockets with overprices DLC... It's stupid - just plain stupid - to defend MW3 over BF3. Well but of course the ideas change and people are free to buy what they like. But just read and try to understand the article and just understand how Infinity Ward and Treyarch turned many cod fans into cod haters. P.S. : I am no COD hater, If they introduce a solid COD game in the future,I'll gladly buy and play
Also they have to re-make the online mode. They have to change it all. I mean it's basically the same thing since Cod MW. Yeah I know it was awesome at first, we loved it totally. But they should change it totally now. A little perks and updates on it with every title doesn't work. A complete renovation is needed
