Why Call of Duty will Never Fail

Tribune writes: "This decade has been infested with first person shooters. There is a reason why developers all around the world are choosing the genre, it comes down to simplicity. Ever since the days of Halo and even before than, shooters have never really had depth as a genre. Halo happened to re-define the controls on the consoles making the genre a lot more accessible and easy to learn."

It probably won't fail in terms of a sales perspective. Black Ops has still been hitting the top ten NPD charts.

Exactly, I think purely on sales and profit to the developer is going to keep going and copies will sell. The only damage they might do is to their core audience, which hasn't minded the quality of the games.

Console gamers only have 1 game that actually runs at 60fps as a first person shooter. Sure there is Halo but thats xbox exclusive.

I feel console gamers like COD because it provides the smooth experience other first person shooters dont, since other shooters on console are only 25-30fps. Hence console gamers are very very limited in choice, they are essentially limited to the COD series if they want a smooth experience, which is why i dont see this franchise going down anytime soon.

All trends die, CoD will too one day.

Dart892503d ago

Of course in sells it won't.But in quality damn does it sux big time.

Cinotix2503d ago

Whats quality these days though? The length of the single player, the depth of the multiplayer. I think in regards to the online component besides battleflield and gears of war I can't think of any other games that even try to offer something good.

Its 60fps on console as a shooter, there isnt another shooter asides halo which is exclusive that provides the smooth experience that COD can provide, and since kids on consoles like to shoot stuff COD sells well.

Its not like console gamers have a verity to play genres like MMO's, RTS which imo severely limits their choice to FPS and since COD is the only multiplat FPS that provides a 60fps game play they are very choice limited.

your not thinking very hard then

I wasn't sure what to think when I read the title, but the points presented in the article actually make a lot of sense. No matter what some people say, it's true that the series is hugely popular with tons of people. Many gamers play it and so too do many not-really-gamer people for its simplicity.

I think it'll definitely keep going strong unless somehow on day people don't like FPS games anymore. But when would that be?

Cinotix2503d ago

Never. As long as it's idiot made it'll be a commercial sales success for the developer, it's the type of world we're in idiots run it as proven by Call of Duty's yearly success.

ThatGuyInTheHat2503d ago

I'm actually anxious to see the sales comparison myself. Honestly, I'm pulling for MW3.

Ziriux2503d ago

I hate to say as much as I dislike Call of Duty, I'm afraid there won't be a comparison between the two in sales maybe in quality yes and I think that Battlefield will take it there.

Cinotix2503d ago

I think that Battlefield will clime a bit but nothing to give competition. At least not for the next couple of years it takes more than just improvements to beat your competitor.

cb8102503d ago

It doesn't matter what they put out, people will buy it. I know I will

Ziriux2503d ago

I don't know this year has Arkham City, Assassins Creed, Battlefield 3, it's going to be a busy season. Hopefully some parents will skip MW3 and buy AC Revelations.

Muitnorts2503d ago

I'm certainly skipping it for a bit this year. No way I'm juggling it with Batman, Uncharted 3 and Skyrim.

Godmars2902503d ago

because like good, gamers are dumb.
