It's a carbon copy each year. And it takes no skill whatsoever.

But I guess most people buy it since it's popular? Why do games that deserve praise and recognition fail but this crap sells?

Baaaaaaaaaaaaah.

It sells because it's a fun game. I agree though some games out there deserve better recognition.

At its core it's still the same game I fell in love with all those years ago. That's what I want more than anything. The little tweaks mean nothing to me.
Ah, yes! I was wondering what would break first! Your spirit...or your body.

Because its fun and you can just pick up and play it.

It caters to new people as well.

As long as you have good reflexes and a good internet connection you can do pretty well most of the time.

This. Also this is what A LOT of people will say. Also this is what applys to me as well. So naturally Treyarch/IW aren't gonna change it. Until the sales start slipping.
