The Death of Classic Multiplayer

OXCGN:

"Don’t get me wrong: you’re entitled to play whatever you like, and have fun with it.

"I don’t extremely dislike Call of Duty for the fact that it’s popular, because then that would classify me as an angry hipster.

"I dislike Call of Duty because it killed the last good thing the industry still had up its sleeve: classic multiplayer

"Have we truly reached a point where these things are outdated, obsolete, and quite possibly unappealing to the modern audience?"

Spot on article... I miss Halo 2. :(

I hated the constant ridiculous jumping though, to avoid getting shot.

I loved the old multiplayer games, they were much more fun in my opinion. I haven't bought a CoD game since CoD 4, as that is when I think it went off track...

gaminoz2252d ago

Agreed. Too much rewards and perks now so the good get better and the newbies don't have a chance. You can even get perks and weapons etc. with pre-orders and LE versions of games!

As the article said and what really hit home to me: "Think about this: when was the last time you played a CTF (Capture The Flag) game mode?"

BadCircuit2252d ago

I love Capture the Flag, it was the best mode of the classic multiplayer and I still own a Gamecube because of it.

I played capture the leader on the gears 3 beta, I loved it and im gunna play it on the full game.

While Gears has tons of modern influence, it stays true to a core classic formula. I love it. Although I don't like the departure form the Gears 1 days, when it was about blowing your mates' heads off.

I play it all the time. Just played it last night.

"The foreplay is too much work; it's wham bam, thank you...you get the idea."

Yup. Quick in, shoot and quick out. No sneaking, no time spent tracking or cornering...That's why I like the Assassin's Creed multi. Some get bored with it because they say it is too slow, but it's great imo!!!
