With Black Ops 2 dividing opinion on its direction, here are five valid reasons to own the game come this November.
"Bad A$# Weapons" That's valid!?
Depends on which end of the barrel you are.
That was nice. I like that.
there should only be 1 reason, if you like the game, buy it..simple.
Fair comment, although some people might need a little more encouragement when they mouth off after seeing just one trailer and a couple of screenshots.
Yeah right, watching our objectives on our wrist is so awesome I'll buy a game just for that feature.
I hate Top # of anything... such BS articles, wayyyyyy overused.
1.) The Story No thanks. I didn't like Black Ops and I certainly won't like Black Ops 2. Not to mention that I never liked the story of any of Activision's games. 2.) 80's Cold War Action on Horseback I'll stick to Red Dead games. 3.) Mini Pad on Your Wrist I'll pass - I have Fallout. 4.) Strike Force / Missions affecting the game Riiiiiight...I'll stick to any good RPG for that. 5.) Bad Ass Weapons Bitch, please.
Just a quick question, do you like Uncharted 3?
Alright thanks, didn't want to jump to conclusions, and sorry if it was Off topic.
i will 100% be buying it. im not a big fan of any cod multiplayer since cod4 but love the single player on all games
#6) To intentionally piss off everyone who keeps preaching on and on why you shouldn't buy it. Thats why I'm buying it, and not because I like the series. Actually, the mere fact that I enjoy the multiplayer means I'm apparently a sheep and/or lemming and not a "hardcore" gamer. Did you beat Dark Souls without any help from the internet/guides? That is what I thought. And if you did, feel free to /sign
You do know you are spending your money not theirs. Way to show them 0_o? And yes I finished Dark Souls without the internet's help....
Pardon my language, but that's the worst fucking reason I've ever heard of. You're buying a game- and padding the numbers, more or less- for the sake of pissing off those who don't like it? Did it ever occur to you, somewhere in that backwards-working brain of yours, that some of these people have perfectly valid reasons for liking the game, and the "I don't give a shit" mentality of the majority of the people who play it is a massive part of the reason why the issues they have don't change? If, out of 20 million people, a thousand voice their problems and decide not to buy, and a million acknowledge the problems but buy anyway, there's still another 18,999,000 who are essentially saying "Meh," and handing over their money. Tell me, which of these groups would you listen to, if you were the one getting paid off sales of the product? And then there are people like you. You can't possibly think what you just said, not unless your brain simply doesn't work. You're not a lemming or a sheep. You are a plague on the gaming industry, because it's with help from indifferent and/or justifying asses like you that greedy companies get away with all the shit they do. It's why people pretend they're happy with sales numbers, instead of having a good product. It's why there were so many articles telling us we were wrong for expecting better out of Mass Effect's ending. Jesus. If this were a face to face conversation, I'd have fed you my fist. I seriously can't stand that sort of mentality from people. That's why you're not a gamer. Not because you're a sheep or a lemming, but because you're willfully supporting dumb shit when you SHOULD be demanding better. Because you're contributing to the problem instead of AT LEAST not making it worse. Again, pardon the language, but your comment and the mentality behind it fucking disgusts me.
Wow. Tell me how you really feel. And I guess I should have had my sarcasm filter on, or maybe you misread my post? I wasn't clear enough? Actually looking back at the wording, I can see how it could have misconstrued.... in the sentence "Thats why I'm buying it, AND not because I like the series." the AND plays a big part. If the AND wasn't there it would certainly imply that I was just throwing $60 away. (or in my case, probably $100). A big /SARCASM would have helped as well... I said I like the series for its multiplayer, that should have given you a hint that I was a supporter. I made the post & the #6 point out of anger over the number of people that bitch and moan about the series. Go back and look at my posting history, I'm constantly defending it. I like the series. I started with BlOps, I'm playing MW3 now, actually bought COD4 to try it out. I am going to buy Black Ops 2 unless something happens between now and Nov 13th that changes my opinion... and NOT to spite anyone, but because I like playing it. I just finished a few hours (for the first time in a while!) of MW3 and had a blast. I'm excited for BlOps2. The Sheep/Lemming comment was added because thats all I've seen at this site... Posters accusing people of liking the game because they are apparently not hardcore gamers & its a "social" thing, which I personally think is bullshit. Hicken, I know you have 1 bub, so if you want to PM me feel free to do so.
Oh snap son! That comment just made my day. :) +bubbles for saying what most of us are thinking.
I will need to see a lot more if I'm ever going to buy COD again. They story branching thing is interesting but if it's going to an explosion feat I'll pass. I still laugh that a car going 15mph ramming into a wooden stand manages to explode in mw3.
i have 10 valid reasons NOT to own Black Ops 2 this November.... REASON 1: the game simply sucks even though i haven't played it yet but i know what to expect. REASON 2: over priced DLC which should even be free. REASON 3: old cheap engine. REASON 4: it brings nothing new. REASON 5: cheap story telling. REASON 6: its a camp fest game + hackers day one, full of glitches. REASON 7: its made by Treyarch/Activision. REASON 8: don't waste your money on this shi* game, there are lots more other options to choose from. REASON 9: over powered weapons. REASON 10: don't believe the hype.
Those reasons are not good enough reasons for me to own another Call of Duty game since the first one!
Im getting borderlands instead of cod. Black ops 2 *yuck*
Top 5 valid reasons to write an article like this 1. Paid by Activision 2. Oh wait that's the only reason
HAHA!! The writer could put out a top 5 reasons not to buy and the place would still fill with whiners. To each their own...like it buy it, if not don't. Pretty simple. Hype blows things out of proportion which is why stupid articles like this exist and not because Activision is paying...some people are delusional to think a multi-million dollar company would pay a fan based site for a chump article. Look at the big boys for that like IGN, G4TV, etc.... Either way the points are valid if you like CoD. Personally everything about the series revolves around the MP. Stories are action packed and fun to play once, but the only reason I still have Black Ops and MW3 is for online play. With all the hate spewed over CoD games its weird it remains at the top of the list year after year after year....
