It seems like most of my friends lately have looked down on me for buying BLOPS II and supporting the franchise. They're always teasing with things like "did you buy elite yet? haha". Most of them have been playing Halo 4 and are now raving about Far Cry 3 because of it's open world gameplay, graphics and map maker.
Has CoD lost it's public appeal among the hardcore gamers like Guitar Hero did? I remember GH fans quickly jump shipped to Rock Band once they got tired of GH.
All 3 games are fun. Halo 4 was the most played on Xbox live for a week till Blops 2 hit, now its been Blops 2 every week. No idea where FC3 is on that list but I doubt itll get 1st or second spot like Blops and Halo.
