NowGamer runs down a list of CoD features and what other franchises need to do to beat them.
why does a shooter need to do that? we already have a large fair share of arcade shooters,we need more realistic shooters,more tactical shooters.
It should read what shooters are better than Call of Duty already. Starsiege:Tribes Arma II Battlefield 2 Quake Unreal Tournament Bad Company 2 Red Orchestra Counter Strike Team Fortress 2 Killzone 2-3 STALKER Half Life 1-2 Deathmatch plus many more. COD is just the popular arcade shooter that casuals love. I laugh every time some moron casual gaming editor acts as if Call of Duty started the whole Modern Warfare genre, WRONG! (Battlefield 2 says hello)
A big marketing campaign and +brain washing level up -.-
Call of Duty has a huge following. It came during the time of the original Modern Warfare when FPS have never since been the same. Only problem is since MW nothing has changed except a few minor things with customization or the kill streak type. The CoD has a huge following but at the same time since MW2 (big fail) it's been generating a lot of hate. Reason being is the gamers are finally tired of putting up with a glitchy full of bugs game and spending $60 on it. Halo (if not exclusive) would have a larger following then CoD and sell more. It doesn't have "perks" per sei but the gameplay is a lot of fun and addicting. This article isn't bad but I don't see why shooters "HAVE" to beat CoD when it's already beating itself into the ground...
Call of Duty sells on its name mostly.
in order for games to "beat" COD the need assault rifle that shoot around corners, and claymores you cant see, oh wait...
Everyone is commenting that there are better FPS's than CoD, which is true... but only depending on what your measure is. There's quality, the amount of people that play it, and the money it generates for the publisher. Nothing comes close to CoD in those last two areas and that's what the developer cares about most - thus why the article is talking about what the developer should do to reach its goal.
Shouldn't' be hard to replace 3 year old garbage with something new and fresh.
