Even though Infinity Ward is on its knees begging the community to tea bag it, gamers still have the capacity to bitch and moan about how it needs to "change" and offer something new.
Large quantities of butthurt detected. Prepare the Preperation-H torpedoes.
If/when the COD franchise does die - Activision will only have themselves to blame.
Actually, when COD dies, Activision will most likely replace it with something else that'll sell like hotcakes. You think they haven't planned ahead for the day that the mainstream gets tired of COD?
only if producing games that sell like hotcakes were that easy....
these 2 can say it the best its because of the greed.
COD has been a great series with 3 classic titles COD1 COD2 and CODMW1. it's made a mega ton of cash and has broken all kinds of records. But the series has lost all innovation and people are just paying $60 for CODMW1 DLC I hate COD cause i'm use to COD raising the bar of FPS gameplay but now it's just a money grab catering to CASUALS who i would never play a FPS against cause they SUCK! But then again i love COD cause it keeps all the N0obs OFF the BF3 server. Casual gamers hate BF3 cause "it's too hard" and "you gotta use teamwork"! thank you COD!
People hate COD Because like to hate anything that is popular. It may also have something to do with the glitches it has/had. I still like to play COD it with friends whenever I'm bored though.
Might be a bit from bugs, but probably from them milking the franchise to death. As well as the DLC that should have been in the retail copy in the first place.
Why should it have been in the retail copy in the first place? O.o
I haven't been interested in cod since 4, they all look and play the same with the same about of bugs in them as the last. I am also sick of shooters being shoved down my throat. Not because "its popular"
People "hate" CoD because they realize it's the same engine, same buildings (lol) and garners enough sales that multiple games could become successes with just a part of IT's success. CoD is a success because it essentially became the new "Madden" and had people and their *friends* hooked since the 4th game came out on consoles. This in effect snowballed with every new release, the anticipation of friends buying on day one so they can just skip the single player and go straight for MP. As we know, all good things come to an end and the snowball effect is sure to reverse itself, unless Activision updates the game to the point where it truly looks like a bona fide sequel and changes game mechanics enough to make it fresh...
You forgot that COD Community went to downhill. Is more immature, racist, more childish and more casual than before.
There will come a day where COD will just die cause of what Activision has done. They've already killed other successful franchises such as Tony hawk, and the music games like Guitar hero. This guy saying that the only people who hate the game are bad players is a retarded assumption. Just because I suck at Halo I don't hate it, I enjoy it. And I get that they can't just ditch an engine, but they really should be working on a new one.
Call of Duty Is Getting Pathetic
It's not getting pathetic, it's well deserved hate. They've milked it, put no effort into it and it's set a bad example in the industry, such a bad example that developers try and copy the COD online ruining some great online games. I'm just upset with the idiots who actually buy them aswell so don't think I'm just hating on IW or Activision.
Yep. I'm an idiot for occasionally popping in CoD to play it with my roommate. Nothing wrong with thinking like that at all. -_-
You know, I COULD be wrong, but I think he's talking more about the people who buy every game and SWEAR it's the best game ever. The people who buy multiple copies of the same one. The people who won't give anything else a chance. The people who don't see ANY problems with the franchise and can't imagine why people complain about it. Nah, he's just talkin about you and your roommate.
I don't like or hate it. I'm indifferent. If people like to play it, that's great. For me, it doesn't exist since I don't care for it either way.
I couldn't care. I don't buy the game, but if other people do, that's great for them. I will continue to play my games while they play CoD.
I've tried to get into MW3 but but COD just ain't my thing anymore, but if other people do enjoy it fairplay to them. An the whole elite thing is just stupid surely they could have had that free of charge on the disc. IW an Activision are cash grabbing whores.
Great article. I'm sorry but the millions of people who play cod everyday are not brain washed. I also don't understand why they are called idiots for liking a highly popular game. Imo the real idiots are the ones who waste their time in cod articles or forums and don't even like the game.
The only thing pathetic are the people who ride the Call of Duty rape train and actually enjoy it; they wouldn't know quality if it bitch slapped them in the face.
I dont hate it or love it but the hurt is causes is real laugh go activision.
