Regarding the recent "generation" of CoD games (after CoD 3), IW did well with CoD4: MW, but it was still a far from perfect game (balance wasn't really all that great), and MW2 was a disappointment (don't even remind me of deathstreaks, weapon imbalance, too many kilstreaks, Commando, and so on). Meanwhile, Treyarch did OK with World at War, very well with Black Ops, and is fixing a lot of mistakes for Black Ops II. Advantage Treyarch, in my opinion.
Because Treyarch is simply better than Current IW. It doesn't really mean much. It's like if you were forced to choose between stepping on poop with flies and poop without flies, you'd obviously opt for that latter; which is Treyarch.
Don't get me wrong; Treyarch is almost as good as old IW, but they haven't done anything really amazing that old IW couldn't do back then. Sorta' like when you're introduced to a game and how awesome it was originally; you never forget that feeling of wonder and awe. You wish you could go back to it, but you can't. You can only move forward and hope someone will step the bar up to today's level of expectations or greater.
FINALLY SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS!!! People just blame IW now for MW3, but really theirs like 2 different IWs. Theirs OLD IW with A LOT of key staff members, and NEW IW with a bunch of new people. Finally somebody understands.
Oh yea, I'm split 50/50 on them. I enjoyed W@W, but despised Black Ops. I enjoyed MW2, but didn't care for MW.(MW3 is by NEW IW)

Everyone only seems to remember the good parts about Old IW, there was plenty bad to go around.
Think balance, which has always been a bigger issue with IW then with Treyarch.
This. There was a lot wrong with MW2. There were comments calling it worse then cancer on it's board back in the day.
I actually prefer MW3 to MW2. MW2 felt like they put so much in, with no idea what a mess it would be. MW3 knew what it wanted to be, and it's BS was tolerable (for me at least) Black Ops is still my favourite.
