The biggest game of the year might have the competition running scared, but the industry needs Call Of Duty. Here's why...
Biggest. Fanboy. Bullshit. Evar. This article is an epic fail. So much for every other good game. Didn't GTA IV do this same stuff when IT was the fastest-selling game ever? There are plenty of great games out there and people should save their money for them, not waste them on a rehash of the same game from 3 years ago.
You mean a rehash of the same game from last year. Also, "It marries Triple A budgets with Triple A gameplay", not says the bugs and glitches since they didn't feel like beta testing it and then blamed the gamers for giving glitchers popularity. Also, the graphics don't feel like a Triple A budget.
Last CoD I'm getting, sorry it doesn't need it... BO is fun but how much different is it from CoD4? CoD series is now the Smackdown vs Raw of FPS...
There you go. Once you played one Call of Duty, you might as well have played all of them.
That's like saying you've watched episode 1 in a TV series so no point watching the rest as it has the same actors.
No, it's like saying watching episode 1 in a TV series so there's no point in watching it 3 more times. Or, better yet, watching episode 2 and it having the same plot and doesn't do anything that makes it feel superior to episode 1. It's just a rehash of episode 1 and nothing more. Almost like with the recent horror movie remakes. You watched the original Halloween, so why would you watch a far worse movie when it's practically the same thing but worse?
It isn't. 'Nuff said.
There are probably 5 good reasons why COD is bad for the industry. How about 1 - It took $360 million out of gamers pockets that could have been spent on other more original, higher quality games.
CoD Is The Second Biggest Cashcow In The orld, 1st Being Mario
Mario has been around for a while though and not milked to death every year.
Read the title, moved on. Fanboy drivel at it's best.
I know 5 reasons would be hard, but the author didn't list one good reason.
lol, what a load of wank
less is more
CoD is the worst thing that happened to FPS. Their constant releases made FPS games seem generic. They also control the popularity of each sub-genre(if they make MW games, others make MW games.) They begin that sub genre, release game after game until people get sick of said genre, then move on to f*ck up another sub-genre. Wish CoD was never made.
The only thing Call of Duty has done is stagnate and ruin the industry. It is only vital to the gaming industry if the gaming industry is a masochist.
