Why the pros think Black Ops 2 is still the best Call of Duty

"Ask most Call of Duty fans who won the Advanced Warfare Championship and they'd have to sit down and think about it," says Shane "ShAnE" McKerral, a veteran of the professional Call of Duty scene. "But if you ask them who won the Black Ops 2 Championship, which was two years before, they will say Impact in a heartbeat."

The Black Ops 2 multiplayer is amazing and all the ones after it just never measured up to it.

I'll take my "everything is overpowered and broken" Modern Warfare 2, thank you very much.

BO2 was the last COD that wasn't doing "too much" new COD feels like it's trying to compete with smaller FPS games, and it just don't feel right. However, TF2 is probably the best FPS currently out.

It was okay, the last half decent COD to be released. The pinnacle of the series was easily COD 4 + MW2, closely followed by WAW.

The multiplayer was awesome. The only time I actually kicked ass in COD and the only time I ever bought a season pass.

Xbox $70 billion bet paid out

fr0sty111d ago

Guess that's what happens when there's no good new games to play...

Well regardless of exclusives, or whatever else there is to play on Xbox or ps, CoD has has still been the top selling game on ps platform since forever also.....so no surprise that the most popular game franchise on any console could easily have a revival due to servers coming back online...this is just credit to xbox backwards compatibility & thats good thing for Xbox gamers.

wiz7191111d ago

@Frosty orrrr maybe it’s a breath of fresh air to be able to go back to the peak of the series .. and it’s beem great lol

mkis007111d ago

It's going to take 10 years for xbox to generate that much profit...

Rhythmattic111d ago

Why worry when they have OS, Server and Background Data in their hands...
Gaming is just the small piece, at the top left in a few K piece jigsaw.

If you buy a house with cash for 1 million dollars you still own the house. Microsoft don't need to make the money back.

Rhythmattic109d ago

But its not money back, its about how it goes missing.

Shooters is what Xbox people play most of the time and that’s about it by the numbers and sales of games.

shinoff2183112d ago

Atkeast older gamers nostalgia is good. Jeez.

Jin_Sakai111d ago

Mostly because the new CoD games are garbage. The old games were much better.

Rutaprkl111d ago

Agree 100%. Cod 4, WaW, Black ops 1 & 2, those were the days.

Rhythmattic111d ago

For MP, Unreal tournament , QIII Arena (loved the UT mod) FTW!

RaidenBlack110d ago

Unreal Tournament and Quake III were simply amazing ... CoD's and CoD-likes' rise killed the arena shooter popularity ...
Unreal Tournament 2004 is my favorite in the series.
Didn't enjoy Unreal Tournament III, Quake Champions that much.
Too bad Epic cancelled Unreal Tournament 2014 becoz of Fortnite

Rhythmattic110d ago (Edited 110d ago )

I got hooked on the QIII Urban Terror mod (and my work colleagues I introduced them to)... LAN Sessions at the closing of the doors at work, into the night , sinking beers and eating pizza..... Good times.

thesoftware730111d ago

Wow, good games never get old I guess.

CoD will always be a beast of a franchise, and how awesome is it that you can just boot it up or pop it into your Xbox and play, MS BC is really a neat feature.

Shows you that backwards compatibility is a worthwhile feature.

@crimson:” Shows you that backwards compatibility is a worthwhile feature.”
I agree it’s worthy at the start of the generation when there’s few new generation games but halfway through the generation it’s not a feature.
Now it’s good that this game is finding a renewed life for its fan but it shows a mayor flaw in new games release when a close decade old game is toppling the charts

CrimsonWing69110d ago

I don't know if I understand what you mean. It's a feature regardless of the time into the generation.

Let's take Armored Core 6 for example. Let's say I'm interested in checking out the previous Armored Core games, sure would be nice if I could play them on my current-gen console.

We're about 3 years into current-gen and old games are hitting in the top 5 for sales charts in the month.

I do get where you're coming from with older games possibly being better than the newer games, but the feature stays the feature. I can only speak for myself, but when there's a lull in game releases or nothing great is out, I like to go back to old titles. It's just nice to not have to have a bunch of consoles out to do so.

I think moving forward it'll be less and less of an issue as like with the PS5 you can access most all of the PS4 games, but I like going back to PS1 and PS2. Would be awesome to kind of make backwards compatibility a prioritized feature moving forward. Hell, Sony was the first to implement it.
