Why so many games? I think i'm gonna go play Fallout 3....
Any following BF fanboy anti-COD comment is ONE BIG HYP0CRITE.
you policing the internet now????
original cod - awesome cod 2 - awesome big red one - awesome cod3 - horrid cod4 - great everything else - broken crappy joke on gaming
Original cod - Sold mediocre Cod 2 - sold mediocre cod 3 - sold terribly cod 4 - sold positive amounts cod 5 - sold nearly as well as cod4 cod 6 - #2 most sold FPS ever (and game ever) cod 7 - #1 most sold FPS ever (and game ever) You may not have enjoyed the recent releases, but I liked MW2 a hella lot, even though they cut their own balls by not allowing dedicated servers for it.
they may have sold well, but sales do not justify if its a good game or not you are very close minded if you think that
When your games sells atleast 15 million more copies than the next competitor, obviously - your game is better. Battlefield got it's niches, but more people like and enjoy what call of duty has to offer. This year, we will see if MW3 can pull the same numbers, even two new studios working on the title along with Infinity Ward.
Call a Dooty
I'll never forget the first Call of Duty for PC. Oh my Lord, that game was amazing! I still think the machine gun sound effect for that game blows away any related sound effect in today's games.
The first game was amazing, I loved United Offensive too. Not into all the zombie mode garbage the game offers these days though.
History? I thought it was just one game that was re-released with more bugs each time?
Nope, it used to be an awesome groundbreaking game but those days are long gone. Its now the super mario of fps games.
History of CoD: 1-3 - copy other FPS games like MoH and BF, but put in a whole bunch of cinematics 4 - Made huge updates on their engine and improved gameplay 5 - updated their engine slightly 6 - copy ^ 7 - copy ^ 8 - (from what we've seen) copy ^
I laughed somewhat. :|
I actually did want to say that, and briefly mentioned Infinity working on MOH first, before COD, but thought I'd get hammered by fans of the series. I prefer MOH and still have the original on PS1.
I though IW only worked on Allied Assault, then they left to make COD. Correct me if im wrong though.
Nope, you aren't wrong; release date for MOH AA is 2002 and its the first time the series came to the PC. Release date for the first COD is one year later. MOH is originally Spielberg/Dreamworks and it shows.
There's a rumor that COD 1000 is in development, but Kotick is the main antagonist?
