GameDynamo - "Pause. Before you fly down to the comments section, hear me out. I'm not saying that the Modern Warfare series should meet its end. I'm simply here to question whether or not a new game is necessary so soon."
Maybe "we" don't need it but Activision does ! Without this golden egg laying machine company would step into deep smelly shit as I'm pretty sure Cod is most likely half of their profit where other half would be Blizzard titles
This article is a game too late. Tre-arch is next in line so there WILL be a new COD, then after that IW is going to make another COD title. Also there will be one on Vita. 3 more CODs in 2 years. And it's funny because vita supporters that are COD haters are now supporting COD because they want their handheld to sell. Which in turn will make Acti publish even more CODs. We're past the point of no return. COD will be written down as one of the greatest franchises of all time whether we like it or not. People say its on a crash course, but its really on a crash course to more success because EACH AND EVERY YEAR more and more people are buying it.
I quite liked COD4. Twas fun, had a blast playing it. I haven't felt the need to buy any more CODs. I've preferred moving away from the FPS genre in general. Quite a few people, of the mainstream as well as hardcore still enjoy the COD franchise and apparently want to keep buying it. That's fine with me. If i'm worried about anything regarding Activision's publishing trends, it's that I hope it doesn't negatively influence other publishers. I think franchises get milked anyway, since $$$ is the name of the game nowaday, and so it happens in the film industry and anywhere else. If YOU (the royal 'you') think that your money is justified in buying a new COD, who is anyone to tell you otherwise? It's the role of every other publisher to show the people why their games and developers are better. Simple as that. I buy games that indicate quality and passion in their making. That's a subjective choice. @Hufandpuf as for COD being the greatest franchise? Sure from a financial standpoint, and perhaps having sold the most copies you can easily make the case for it being the most liked. but greatest franchise based on critical acclaim, personal choice, or any other criteria? Highly debatable. It's a moot point ultimately, perhaps. But that's why as gamers we debate. That's the whole idea. And I for one find the franchise redundant, unoriginal, and uninteresting. If anyone cares, I can elaborate. But it's all been said before so i'll avoid that.
You don't have to elaborate why COD is shovelware now, I know. I love COD4 (because I still play it). That was back when the idea was fresh. The recent CODs are shells of COD4.
Indeed. And though I don't play COD4 anymore, it only takes me a moment to recall those countless nights of pure COD fun back in the day. Ahhh yes. Those were the days. And now I somewhat eagerly await the new UC3 maps.
Well makarov is dead...so now I'm looking for a new story.
Future Warfare -_- ie. BF2142
"Why We Don't Need Anymore COD Games" Fixed the title for you.
Would that be the same as saying no more Tom Clancy Games?
I'm not trying to hate or anything but I just don't see what else they can possibly do or add in the next COD to keep it fresh that hasn't been done already.
Well we're not getting one....we're most likely getting Black Ops 2.
We don't need ANOTHER CoD. But we DO need a NEW one. What we've been getting so far hardly qualify as new games.
Well that's YOUR opinion now isn't it? Albeit a bad one.
New engine, new setting, new story and I'll consider buying
It peaked at Cod4 imo,world at war and black ops were just bearable mw2 wasnt too bad but the overpowered killstreaks/perks let it down not to mention the hacked lobbys.MW3 i just cant take to i dont know what it is about it it just feels bland,but activision will keep churning it out and people will buy years ago medal of honor was all the rage now its call of duty and something else will take over in the future its just how it goes :)
People said this since MW2...People just don't need to buy the game. But what do people do?
