Definitely, CoD has set a standard to where if something doesn't play like CoD people won't buy it because it's new.

**PLEASE DON'T MAKE THIS TOPIC A BATTLE OF OPNIONS!**

[Post your thoughts and opinions if you have more to say about the topic, but respect each other's perspectives. I want this to be a clean and simple poll, nothing fan boy influenced and close minded when commenting on other users comments.]

Now personally, I think CoD started to fall after Black Ops. I enjoyed it up until people started calling themselves gamers for playing CoD once in awhile.

However, I'm asking if you think CoD has made gamers feel like they don't have the patience to want and play something new and innovative like Brothers in Arms.

Or

Do you believe CoD has just been something to play with neutral grounds with no influence on gaming.

Yes, because so many other games try to copy elements from CoD and end up being complete disasters. Halo 4 and Gears of War Judgment are a couple that come to mind

I don't mind someone basically having such a huge influence on the genre. I have a huge problem when the one with the influence is continually releasing a s*** product that spreads itself incredibly thin with a hard on for casuals.

I voted before reading, I voted kind of and I would have said yes had I read this first.

I almost forgot how CoD completely ruined Halo 4. It's sad, but Halo 3 has more people playing it right now than Halo 4 does. Sure, Halo 3 was just made free but still that's pathetic

I don't think it's a bad influence, but it's not a good influence, either. I think people should chill out on FPS's for a while, until someone comes up with something that actually makes the FPS special.

Even before it was free it had a substantially higher population. CoD's massive success has been nothing but a burden to the FPS genre. We now have a glut of "gritty, realistic modern shooters" without one original thought in them, and the formerly great franchises have to pick up traits from CoD in hopes to sell to the masses of casuals.

In short, CoD is a cancer on gaming, and I'd have loved to see what shooters would be today if CoD4 had been a failure.

CoD is perfectly fine. People who take the game too seriously (i.e. How Vahn got death threats over Sniper nerfs) need to quit playing.
