CoD4 was amazing, and loved by pretty much everyone. It's the main reason the CoD franchise took off. WaW I don't think was as good, nor as popular, but still fun. MW2 was a good game. It had a good variety of maps (not that they were all good, just good variety) great weapon balance (inb4ump) but the perks were unbalanced, and OMA/noobtubes was a big issue that detracted from it.
Blops was my favourite, and I think it got a lot right. The guns were balanced (because they were the same) the maps were good. Perks wise, unbalanced. Ghost, SoH, Hacker was everyones go to killer class, unless they needed FJ. Then MW3 came. I thought it was the poorest in the series. Bad, bland maps, terrible spawns, introduction of lag compensation, and just overall more frustrating than enjoyable.
Now we have blops 2. Jury is still out. I think we'll get a patch before 2013 that'll shape the game, hopefully in a good way.
Here's how it goes CoD4 comes out = Everyone loved it WaW comes out = Some like it, people still love CoD4 MW2 comes out = People love CoD4/WaW. But hate MW2 Blops comes out = People love CoD4/MW2/WaW. Hate Blops MW3 comes out = People love 4/MW2/Blops but hate MW3 Blops 2 comes out = People love 4/MW2/Blops but hate Blops2/MW3
See the trend?
Yes. The games get progressively worse so Call of Duty fanboys have no choice but to cling to previous iterations to heal the butthurt from the less than stellar sequel to the franchise. If someone forces you to eat urine for a week, you'll hate it. But once they state making you ear feces, you'll miss the urine as bad as it was. No?
And yet. Here you are.
I didn't buy Blops 2.

MW2 was fun, but had so much bs. Akimbo 1887 (sp?), javelindom glitch, danger close / one man army, etc... Then with the kill streaks. 4-7 kills (depending on hardline and first streak selected) could easily lead to a bunch more kills. Fun, but lots of bs.

MW2 would be the perfect one if I could just change a few things.
-Shotguns are primaries -Killstreaks don't stack -No Commando (or it does something entirely different, like Fast Hands instead) -OMA doesn't replenish launchers -Scavenger changed to work like this game's version -Sleight of Hand Pro doesn't affect snipers -UMP does 40-30 damage -F2000 does 35-25 damage -Fix detrimental weapon glitches
Man I'd love that game.
As it is though...this game can be so frustrating that MW2 doesn't even look worse. Black Ops is still better than both though. And MW3 is still the worst of all.
The supernatural says that if you act a certain way you might avoid suffering. But reality says you came from the stars...
