YouTube visitors aren't keen on Modern Warfare. Update: The original was a leak and they have re-released the video.
exactly less than 2,000 have voted. How can a story be made from this. COD sells millions. 2,000 people disliking not much of a proportion.
It's because CVG saw an opportunity to get a bit of traffic with a MW3 story. It's sad that the one article they choose to publish, is around a video which has been removed.
It's news worthy because after getting a ton of down votes they removed the video from the COD channel. insecure much Activision? ha!
Yeah what's all this business about people not liking it? I'm ready for the MW2 Map Pack.
If as many BF3 fanboys are trolling a MW3 video like they troll MW3 N4G articles, this totally makes sense.
I swear the MP footage in MW3 looks exactly like the footage from BlackOps...
2,000 within an hour or two of the video going live, and a 1:5 like/dislike ratio. That's the story, not the number of votes. And of course it will sell millions. Just like iPhones. Just like the Wii. Casual streamlined garbage is the opium of the masses. That doesn't mean its not terrible, or that it doesn't deserve every ounce of criticism it gets for being the same repetitive remake in a new box for a premium price.
Well said Celeras. In any case- I understand the dislikes for it. THey actually showcased quick-scoping like it was a good thing at the end of the trailer. I mean wtf?? Proof, if you ever needed it, that they are catering for the kiddies on this.
Well that is a spin. 2,000 isn't enough to warrant a story. The ration means nothing if the amount of people is small. Lets take a look at Cher Lloyd Swagger Jagger song http://www.youtube.com/watc... A lot of dislikes to likes which is more relevant than this COD story as it has many more votes but is it news worthy. No. She still made it to number one. Was there stories about her saying a lot dislike on youtube. No. Its like doing a news story on the amount of anti COD comments on this site. It is irrelevant. It means little. Just because the ratio is big doesn't make it news worthy when the votes are low
The vote total was only low because the video was released earlier in the day. And apparently it was enough of a 'story' for them to pull the video completely off youtube for some lame attempt at damage control.
The "official" trailer video says a completely different story on likes/dislikes: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
They have a pending approval on the comments lol xD
Wth, about 14k thumb ratings and only 304 views :/
This is just a case of shit journalism. This article claims 78% of Youtube doesn't like MW3 ? Really cause I found a ton of MW3 videos that show quite a different picture on the like / dislike side of things. This author straight up didn't do his research and based a broad statement on one video? Hello?!?!? McFly...Youtube has many videos [email protected] and I think your tainted video article would read very differently if you bothered to do any real work. CVG just lost a lot of credibility in my eyes. This feels like a full on fanboy written article more than real journalism.
Its cool hating on number 1 popular game. News flash people enjoy it for its fast paced nature they dont care about graphics it will sell 8 millionin 24 hours and next cod whole process will repeat , when the haters will be complaining about mw3 after they brought it lol
I agree i never said it was a bad game its just a ripoff lol i like madden but they are ripoffs releasing basically the same game every year . if your releasing a game yearly you should bump atleast $20 off
Of course its been disliked. Dont they realise its 'cool' to hate Call of Duty?
I think that is one thing this generation which saddens me. Its ok not to like a game and not buy it (leave it there) but to actually hate on the game has gotten ridiculous. I know this COD hate is limited to sites like this as the rest really do not care but still. I thought the average gaming age was like 30 not 10
Everyone hates the game but still buys it...
i actually express my hate for the game so much because i like it i dont want people to support them because i want them to realize that we dont want the same thing over and over but to actually improve and actually use some of that money to make a new engine and mo cap some new animaations becuase im tired of those 2007 animations :)
Really sad, ain't it? It was first "cool" to play CoD4 so everyone who has no brain bought MW2. Now that CoD isn't in with the "cool kids" everyone hates on it. Some really need to play a game they truly want to play. Not because some dood down the street is playing it.
It's cool to like and play it until it gets immensely popular. Then it sucks and you've always hated it... but you still buy it, play hundreds of hours and it somehow still sucks.
i don't hate it because it doesn't say CoD any more or anyone for that matter....i hate it because i feel like im getting the same game in a different package -_-
i dont hate CoD att all, maybe im just bored of it. I dont like how people assume that if you enjoy battlefield you now dispise CoD. certainly not, i had many good times in CoD games, im just ready for something new.
Welcome to the world of hipster gamers. I had a great time on MW2, but since the abysmal failure that was Blackops :/ I have opted to get my FPS kicks from DICE this year. After all I will be eternally grateful to them for giving me Mirrors Edge. If MW3 turns out good I will buy and play it, after all it was fun (on MW2) just to show teh kidz how you play an FPS and I always had fun showing off to my friends how I could own like 85% of the COD population every time, LOLZ. (I am aware that cod gives you the impression that you are better than you actually are, didn't notice? well watch newbies play cod for a while and you will notice a change in their ego) These things won't stop me enjoying a good cod session, but my interest diminishes quickly these days, and I find myself wanting a little more depth from my online experiences. I believe this is a valid reason, just don't ask me about black ops..........
Is this NEWS? Oh my fukking god what has this site turned into.
At least its not being flooded with blog and forum posts like it used to
Yeah, but it's more cool to like COD. MW is the same rehashed game every year. Activision has not changed anything except the boards, and perks.
Sorry, but I was disliking CoD before it was cool. I've been on the Battlefield bandwagon since 1942 on PC. I'm part of the group that built the bandwagon.
Want a golden trophy for all the things you've done for the community? Jesus Christ...
@Blacktric Stick and stones, buddy. I couldn't care less about your silly quips.
Too bad the video has been removed before I was able to watch it ):
http://thegamingliberty.com... There you go, bout the only link thats working I can find I'm mixed about it, a lot of the stuff I see intrigues me but I don't know if I want to spend the money and time on another CoD tho in ways the trailer reminds me of CoD4, little things like the red dot sights and environments seem like its come from CoD4 will have to wait and see
Thanks a lot mate! Bubbles+ That was....ugh... Not what expected!! I wanted to see the juggernaut armor in action!
Thanks for the link man have some bubbles. But ye i agree with dark-hollow, i expected to see some actual gameplay, but that just showed a guy running around in 3rd person.
@dark-hollow & Pacman321 Yh as the tittle of this article suggests people aren't liking it too much, trying to go for the epic action movie style or something, just gona have to wait to see if we see more or when it comes out
Right on. The trailer is cool, but it's more like a movie instead of a actual multiplayer game trailer. To much time is spent show the players actions in 3rd person, instead of showing him in 1st person. http://m.youtube.com/index?... This is how trailer should be. More focus on the gameplay. MW will sell more but BF3 will definitely be the better game.
That thumb doesnt look pleased at all. :-)
look u dont know me.Stop with the bs just cuz i defend the new dante.yall ppl r rediculous lol.
When I say the trailer i was like wow it like i'm in 2007 all over again
Anyway...wrong move to release vids so close to the release date. You just realize that gamers are pissed with what you're doing and don't have the time to put things in place again.
i dont get y people like CoD now dont get me wron Cod 1 to cod 4 was brill cos it brought summit new to the tables but after 4 its the same shit same small maps same kill streaks its pretty rhe same shit
If you say that then you obviously haven't played them. Though I don't disagree entirely, but FORGET Treyarch's titles -- THEY are the clones of the previous games. World at War = WW2 CoD4 Black Ops = Cold War/Vietnam MW2 Black Ops 2 = MW3 Does CoD4 = MW2? Hell no, they're HUGELY different. Will MW2 = MW3? No. Simple as that. The innovation with the series lies with IW, Treyarch will just continue to copy them.
Yah butz IW really have nothing to do with this COD, as they are at Respawn mostly...
Mostly? They are respawn and guess who they chose as publisher EA,.
The amount of recycling I saw in that trailer is staggering. I mean I know COD is known for the gameplay being similar but thats literally modern warfare 2, environments you see the watermelon booths the grates, buildings. Literally everything seemed recycled that is really disappointing... Wow I really might not buy this game
It's youtube though. Home to an utter cesspool of racists, fanboys and overall retards. The game will still sell millions.
Typical COD fanboy, sales numbers are all that matters eh? Looks like the Wii was the best console of this generation!
ROFLOL. Bubbles & hugs. :)
Celeras, you're obviously new here if you think I'm a COD fanboy. I'm nothing of the sort. I had the game on PS3 at launch and sold it for God of War 3 after a few months. But what I'm saying is factual. Youtube comments are full of fanboyism and racism and not a reflection of how people feel about the game. I'm only bringing a logical response to the table. No matter how much we hate on it, it'll still sell millions. So who gives a damn if a few adolescent youtube commenters give it a thumbs down. I'm personally vouching for BF3 this year. I don't even like FPS but this one has me excited. Only other FPS I like is Killzone. Rationality doesn't seem to be your strong point. You succeeded in being an absolute prick. Look at my comment history and try and tell me I'm a COD fanboy again. Dickhead.
Well, caleras I think optical_matrix makes a good point, here. When you find a piece of information, the intel is only as good as the source that provides it and using youtube like/dislike data as a way of gauging the popularity of a game is not exactly credible. The people who are disliking this video are mostly fanboys, whereas there are many people who watch the video and then go away and watch another video, opting not to like OR dislike it (even if they do choose to buy it later). What I'm saying is that youtube like/dislike bar should be taken with a grain of salt.
And getting agrees doesn't seem to be your strong suit!
2000 votes is small drop in the ocean considering the millions of COD fans that will buy MW3 upon its release. I'm the first to admit, i'm not much of a fan of this franchise these days, but it's got a huge following so all those that hate the series just play something else and dont worry about what others are doing
If you take away all the editing they did on the trailer and just leave it in firstperson somehow it looks just like the last game that killed the series for me and thats very generic.
I'm still buying it. Don't care what other people think. Most haters will still buy the game. But BF3 definitely must have IW on the ropes.
Yeah the competition is a good thing, I doubt BF3 would be looking half as good as it does if COD were not around. I am buying COD and I hate it, but it is fun to play when all my friends are on it too! I can not stand it as a game to play generally though, constant disconnects and stuff just irritate me to no end >.>. Actually it would be pretty good, if I could you know, play a game without the host rage quitting, or the server disconnecting for no apparent reason.
Firstly people are boycotting cod, secondly i was hoping for actual multiplayer footage and lastly there are better games than CoD (in terms of graphics).
The difference is that CoD runs at 60 fps. There is no denying the difference this makes. If it was all about graphics KZ3 would be top dog. Inb4 "humans can only see 24 fps etc..."
i only said that there are games that are better than cod for graphics, of course kz3 and other games are better. I didn't say anything about fps or how well it runs. Btw i'll play this game eventually as i'm a true gamer who will not judge a game that i haven't played yet. Even if i know the gameplay is the same as the other CoD games, but why would they change the formula of a highly successful game. Its like what if halo (or any game) started to go free running, or uncharted went first person and goes on a alien world, things can/have to be different but not changed like crazy as stated above. EDIT: SIGH.....this totally just killed most of my point of changing gameplay.... http://n4g.com/news/836288/...
I'll deny it, been playing games at 30fps my whole life and have nothing to complain about. Just because COD can run at 60fps due to inferior graphics doesn't make it better in any way (or any smoother, as you should know by your "inb4..." statement)
@ sprayNpray "or any smoother" Actually 60 fps does make CoD smoother. Otherwise what would an increase in frame rate accomplish? This is why the BF series is meant to be played on PC and why BF3 is scaled back on console AND at 30 fps. It gives the smoothest possible gameplay on PC to play at 60+ fps. Anyone who cant see the difference is kidding themselves.
BF3 for what it offers, is reasonable why is running 30FPS on consoles. Unlike COD which is the same thing, looks like a generation below from BF3. PC can run BF3 at 60FPS.
Haters gonna hate. But it doesn't mean they're wrong.
it is just me or Modern Warfare 2 look better then this? Maybe its because the Whole Infinity Ward was working on MW2.
I personally didnt like the video. The game looks cheap when you compare it to Battlefield 3. But in the end this is all just an opinion of mine.
90% dislike BF3 fanboys.Who cares? I buy MW3,its cool fps. Too much hype BF3,and maybe disappointed(console version)
Gamer "politics". It's cool to be anti-COD.
after the announcment of BATTLEFIELD 3 gamers are starting to see the lack luster of a game that has no destructable inviorment and vehicals...case closed
What about School. Was that closed too? Todays tip: Spell checker.
