Should we all boycott the COD Map Pack?

Console Monster writes:

This is something that has been bugging me for a while now so I've decided to write it all down so you too can have your say.

I love Call of Duty: Black Ops. In fact I love the Call of Duty series and have done ever since Call of Duty 2 was released a mere six years ago. I've been loyal to the series but the thing that it has affected most is my wallet. Almost periodically every three to four months I've had to dig into my wallet, find my card details and purchase yet more Microsoft points - Points which I despise but that's for another rainy day.

Machinima give the game free advertisement. On-topic there might be a bundle for the map packs like World at War at a reasonable price instead of the separate packs. I like Black Ops but I have other games to play.

... but none of the CoD fanboys will boycot this. They just lap it up as always.

Yeah it's just annoying looking at the youtube gaming section (as I always say), it's mostly full of COD videos we've seen since 2007. I do realise rendering can be a pain but it's just the same gameplay.

Boycott the map packs? This is for those people who will actually buy the game. I have not bothered to buy anything Activision since MW1. Anything COD after MW1 totally sucks (at least that's my opinion) and I am not going to pay over and over for the same game every year. You wana boycott the maps packs and think that will change something? No! If you really wana stop buying crap then STOP BUYING COD games!

People should be free to use their money in any way they see fit. Since the value of a purchased item lies in the eye of the beholder...who gives a shit others do with their $$?

Let them set it on fire if they want ;)

@ sphinct

Because maybe if those fools stopped taking it up the ass from activision everytime, they'd make a better for the rest of us that want a better game.

starcb262550d ago

badz1492550d ago

Nope..I have bought every single COD map pack since COD4 and i will keep doing it...We get it that people on this site dose not like the game but in the real world majority of us love COD online...If u people hate the game so much then y do u keep talking about it? Just ignor it and move on with ur life and stop trolling every COD article.

subtenko2550d ago

no, boycott the series all together. f this least get BF3 this time around. More games deserve much more attention but no, people only play COD and talk about that game. not everyone, but ALOT...and they are missing out on great games cuz of this BS

ForROME2550d ago

I boycotted Activision as a whole 2 years ago good luck with their products.

Deadman_Senji2550d ago

Yeah, probably. I don't even buy Call of Duty games.

I can't tell you how to live though, I'm certainly not the best guide.

RugbyGod2550d ago

Then why are you even bothering to comment here??? sheeeesh.

Deadman_Senji2550d ago

Because people like you get upset about my opinions and I think it's funny.

Call of Duty really is a blight on the industry though.

RugbyGod2550d ago

dude, if you think this is me upset you need a thicker skin.

To troll for reaction is just being a douche and that's what i find funny...

ATLien2550d ago

Boycotting map packs is like boycotting gas prices we should but it will never happen.

maniacmayhem2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

Well how is this DLC any different from other games that do the exact same thing?

If you dont like it, dont buy it.
