"I'm Not Buying The Next COD," Oh But You Will

TitanReviews writes: You hear it everywhere with each iteration, "I'm not buying the same game again!" Really? I mean c'mon...


Just a FYI this title refers to the hundreds of people saying they won't buy another COD game, but end up buying it anyways. Not saying everyone will. Sorry for any misconception.

I Will. My money, my choice, My taste.

jony_dols2731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

I won't either. But I know people who said that they wouldn't buy Black Ops after MW2. And come end of November last year, most of them had got it.....

Edit: By you saying 'I will', do you mean, I will not be buying it?
I'm confused!

LOGICWINS2731d ago

I don't understand why these dumbass journalists make it seem like its IMPOSSIBLE to not buy COD games every year. Dude..I've never purchased, borrowed, or rented a COD game in my life lol!

blumatt2731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

I'm one of those people who say that I won't and I REALLY WON'T. lol I'm not wasting my money on that same re-hashed crap year after year. Call of Duty needs innovation (and destructibility haha).

Battlefield BC2 is a better game hands down. And after that, I'd choose Killzone 3. And after that Resistance 2 (and 3). And many more games over Call of Duty.

After Call of Duty 4, the games have went downhill. I used to love CoD4 and I even still have my copy that I play from time to time, but I WILL NOT buy another CoD game until they do something new and exciting, as well as update their aging graphics engine.

MY holiday gaming will consist mostly of Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, and Resistance 3. (My next couple months of gaming will consist of InFamous 2 and Twisted Metal, and possibly Motorstorm: Apocalypse.)

Any action/shooter fan who hasnt played Call of Duty 4 shouldnt call themselves gamers.


I said no more right after playing some COD4 (crap support, lame and overpriced map pack, too much crap on the gameplay) and never came back. But I definetelly know some people that did said it and still play every COD that Actibastards launch.


I don't like this "impossible to resist" journalists spit too, but I can see where they are coming from, lots of people say it every CoD and the damn thing just sell more each itteration. I guess some people DO like being raped. LOL

X_GAMER_X2731d ago

I Will Waste My Money on My Choice of the next COD if they have a collectors edition of My taste. there fixed

tmoss7262731d ago

I'll probably end up renting it because I want to know the conclusion to the story, but I'm sure BF3 will have the better multiplayer.

Hockeydud192731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

Unless its the prequel everyone rumoring about. Story wise not multiplayer"

Solidus187-SCMilk2731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

how does he know "all these people" saying they wont Buy the next COD did or not? Did he personally go and check? I guess he just assumes that alot of these people still did. Im sure some did but im sure a shit load of people who say they wont didnt but it.

personaly, I never said I wouldnt buy it, but I havent bought it since COD4.

I just kinda doubt this guy knows if these people hes refering to bought it or not.

IMO, Cod games are still better then alot of crap out there, popular or not.

Solidus187-SCMilk2731d ago

everyone I know IRL who buys COD every year never said they wouldnt. In fact, all of them say that they will buy it when I ask them.

Im not saying that people dont buy it after saying they wont. I just dont think this guy kept track of each person who said they wouldnt, and then checked to see if each one bought it. If he did he might find some that didnt buy it maybe.

I think there are people who say they wont buy it and dont. Only thing is each year when COD looses 1 customer, they gain 3 new ones.

Call of Duty = awesome PC FPS, The Benchmark for Online shooters....Classic!

Call of Duty 2 = raised the bar and expanded to the 360, even without vehicles it gave Battlefield a run for it's money....Classic

Call of Duty 3 = No PC version, made by Treyarch, and let the consolization begin.

Call of Duty: World at War = returns to the PC and tries to bring back that old magic...I didn't like it but many people did. Once again a not so good Treyarch title.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare = after being stomped by Battlefield 2, COD enters the Modern age and produces an awesome title....Classic

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 = No dedicated PC servers so NO purchase, as arcade a game as you can get plus it was broken. Lag fest on the consoles as well.

Call of Duty: Black Ops = more MW1 DLC and really no reason to buy this for $60 especially with all the bugs. a much better effort by Treyarch but still a shade of what COD use to be.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 = for the third time in a row i will pass on what use to be the benchmark of shooters. The series has went from requiring skill and strategy to every casual gamer on the planet saying "i will PWN you in COD".

Hopefully Call of Duty will go back to it's roots but either way it's still one of the greatest series in gaming history.

Motorola2731d ago

AlterIWnet is pretty damn good though. And its, you know, free.

solar2731d ago

BLOPS is my first CoD title i actually played, and it is fun, but nothing i'd buy another iteration of.

Zydake2731d ago

LMAO @ your disagrees.

BeastlyRig2731d ago

so you like buggy $60 rehashes? O_o

Legion2730d ago

I didn't buy Black Ops due to all the issues... so doubt I will purchase the next if they don't fix the issues.

Solid_Snake-2730d ago

i have said it every year since cod4 that i wont buy another cod but have ended up in the que at midnight for all of them lol.

its just one of them games you need to see if they have made a good one. i always end up disappointed lol.

love the title though. its so true

Moragami2730d ago

Not this kid. The CoD games are too short on content and too high on price for my liking. Now they offer buggy PC multiplayer and nothing innovative from CoD4. I own CoD4, but haven't bought a CoD game since.

Battlefield series is better, smarter, more innovative, and much more fun.

100% guaranteed to not buy the next CoD.

Oh but i won't bf3,skyrim,and uncharted 3 will occupy my holiday gaming needs.

thorstein2731d ago

Indeed. BF3 is looking phenomenal.

Focker4202731d ago

Ya if BF3 comes out when MW3 does then I'm definitely getting BF3 first. As well as UC3.

NYC_Gamer2731d ago

i really have no problem with people buying what ever they like

Hitman07692731d ago

Agree and this title was so true and funny still.

HK62731d ago

Only disagreed because I care what people buy if it means that it allows a big company to get through several iterations of a series with no innovation or improvements.

ERMAC_2731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

They'll still buy it because they apparently don't care enough, so be it. He's right though, you shouldn't care just don't buy it and support devs you like by speaking with your wallet.

MGRogue20172731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

I won't lie, I find Call of Duty to be lots of fun.. So therefore, I will buy more of it.

It helps that there are quite a few differences between each one in the series as well, which is nice.

Also, I will be buying Battlefield 3.. of course.

capjacksparrow2731d ago

I said the same thing last year and ended up buying Black Ops. This year I'm actually not buying it. I don't have too much money and I've barely been buying a game per month. I do plan on purchasing Elder Scrolls 5 and Uncharted 3, those games come first! Also, Resistance 3 and Killzone 3 will keep me busy in terms of FPS.
