Black Ops II sales reach $1 billion in 15 days

The sales are just proof of how gullible CoD players are, and how willing they are to waste their money. Go on - keep buying the same game every year, and continue proving to the industry that innovation and creativity is not needed when you can just rehash the same crap and make a billion dollars. CoD might not be dying, but it's slowly draining the life out of gaming.


First of all, this isn't a new phenomenon. For the entire history of gaming there's been marquee franchises that haven't changed, and in some respects there's always been a lack of innovation. The SNES era was a lot of people making platformers because Mario was successful, for example. This isn't new and it's most certainly not permanent. Saying gaming is dying because a series whose business model you don't like is the most successful any gaming franchise that's ever existed has been is asinine.

Second of all, COD isn't 'dying' per se, but it is absolutely, 100% regressing.

Third of all, they're quality games. I dislike aspects of just about all of them, but they're well made, generally polished, work well, control well, play well. If it was so easy to do what COD does, other people would have done it already. Instead, we see games like Homefront, MOH, and countless others fail because they're quite simply not as good.

Wow, $1 billion in just over two weeks year after year after year and they still can't put out a game with respectable net coding. They forget the single most important aspect of a shooting game...the bullets going where you aim them. Just makes you wonder.

They just need to tone down the speed of the avatars. They have even admitted that the engine can't handle how fast everybody is moving and that you will actually outplay the engine and it will fall behind.

All of those people running through your bullets just to knife you...yeah, they are going too fast for the game to keep up, not the connection, the actual coding for the game itself.

It's the "hard truth" that very few games handle as well as CoD does.

Whose ass did you pull this out of?

Oh, right: yours.

Just here to rebut: COD games arent well made. Compared to contemporary titles they are pathetically bad looking and they have last gen controls ( floating around two inches off the floor).

Compared to Valves latest update to a fifteen year old game cod sucks.
