why do people buy the same game every year?

I don't. Last 1 I played was MW2 so I'm probably gonna get Blops 2. CoD is like sports games now. Buy every 3rd or 4th one and it's worth it

TC is implying everyone buys every iteration of the game.

No I have common sense

As someone who likes a different type of games (Fighters), that are often derided for having someone buy the same game over and over, I can tell you why:

Minor changes that most people who don't love the game won't notice.
In general, most of us like the game we were already playing, we really do. But that's why we're buying another similar game: it's a new twist on a favorite. Maybe it's the new weapons, or a new feature. In the games I play, it's often new characters, or even balance changes. When you love to play a game this much, you're sometimes willing to pay $60 for the new features as long as they were worth getting, and they didn't mess it up.

Now I can't judge which COD games they messed up, or didn't mess up, because I didn't like the gameplay in the first place, and have always liked the old school arena shooters more (Quake, Unreal, ect).

Also, some people buy the game for the campaign, because lord knows that old school shooters have better multi-player, as do many other shooters, such as Halo, Gears, The new Counterstrike, and even Transformers: War for Cybertron. Some people just want another new campaign, for the same reason that people bought Super Mario Galaxy 2.

The same reason I don't get the same hooker every time. I like variety.


but there is no variety when it's the same product every year.

Jesus Christ. I'm not a fan of CoD either, but do you people really feel the need to troll/annoy the CoD fans about "getting the same game every year?"

If they like the series, cool, more power to them. But why go out of your way to make these topics every time?

Because I can afford too. You should get a job as well so you can too.


Most people who buy/play the game aren't old enough to get jobs. Plus, a lot of high school kids don't choose to get jobs haha
