Is Modern Warfare 2 the most anticipated game of all time?

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare didn't receive anywhere near as much hype leading up to its release as its sequel has. That's a given considering it was the first in the Modern Warfare franchise and the first Call of Duty game to move onto the modern battlefield. We all knew it was going to be great, taking the series to all new heights with more advanced weapons and a great online experience. But it blew up. It went crazy. Halo 2 may have defined online gaming for consoles, helping make XBOX Live the great online service it is today, but COD4 seemed to redefined it. It was able to attract an all-new market of gamers to not only the genre, but also to online multiplayer gaming.

halo 3 was way more crazy.... anticipation wise .... and halo reach might be the same if they actually improve on graphics this time

yeah H3 and MW2 hype is pretty big and lol the pre-orders are crazy.

This goes back a LONG way, but Super Mario Bros. 3 was the most anticipated game I can remember.

In the "modern" era though, MW2 is definitely the most anticipated. The fact that it's multi-platform gives it the edge over Halo 3.

this guy got drunk and started asking himself this stupid question! Killzone2 was the most anticipated game for my ps3 and it lived to everyone's expectations and hype enough said!

4. SMB3
5. KZ2

GTA4 was probably the most anticipated. GTA is one of the most popular franchises out there. Especially since it's multiplatform. Some people said Halo 3. That may be the case...for 360 owners. But in general, GTA4 was the most anticipated game of all time(IMO).

ReservoirDog3163452d ago

Yeah, I'd go with Halo 3 or GTA IV. Seemed more frenzied with Halo though with the 10 commercials you'd see in 10 minutes.

this might just be the game that can touch the hype and sale glory of halo3 if not this one i dont see anything non-halo doing so... infact the xbox community alone will carry this game in sales to mad figures.. .. but we have the pc and the ps3 too.. so expect this to be well ridiculous.. at the point if activision puts 50 pounds on this shyt ppl will still buy..i personally cant wait... its killin me..TUESDAY!

i tink mgs4 was (with ps3 gamers)

UltimateIdiot9113452d ago

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was MGS4 for PS3 owners. With Kojima signing in NYC and gamers dying to play Kojima's insane stories.

Go back to school.

And learn to use proper grammar and punctuation while you're at it. I know it might be hard for you but I believe in you. Honestly, I do.

You forgot to put something in your post.

I'm not trying to put you on the spot or embarrass you, so I'll let you figure it out yourself.

swiftshot933453d ago

Assassins Creed was crazy too but yeah not as much as MW2 or Halo 3. For me it was probably GTA.

theEnemy3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

I'm happy for you and all but Halo 3 was the most anticipated game of all time!

check: open zone.

I'm happy for you and all but Halo 3 was the most anticipated and overrated game of all time!
