First feel free to look at my GT and PSN, I haven't even touched a CoD game once, the only FPS I've ever played were Battlefield games.

If a customer is willing to pay full price for a rehash and enjoy playing it why shouldn't he? If you are having joy with your purchase then it is money well spent.

It's also not working w/ every franchise as AC4 is the worst selling AC game so far, and immho well deserved as AC4 should really have been a standalone pirate game instead.

Also don't get the whole dudebro and true gamer sentiment, is there anything to feel better than other people for playing stuff you prefer? Is there anything to feel better than others in regard to video games at all? Are gamers just that insecure and self-conscious?


" I haven't even touched a CoD game once" so you don't get a say on why COD is more and more hated with each release. carry on


So all those people who never played a CoD shouldn't have a say in hating CoD either and there's many of those.


Yes. The people who've been playing it since COD4 back in 2007 would be in a better position to say that COD is going to the dogs. Seriously, you didn't play it when the game had good spawns, good sized maps, and the guns all felt just right. Ghosts is a friggin mess, and I'm glad I never bought it.

I can deal with the IED men, I can deal with the dogs, and I can even deal with the riot shield+C4 guys, but I refuse to play a game that spawns me 8(yes, eight) times in the same place, allowing me to die right out of spawn each time. There is absolutely no excuse for spawns to be this bad when the maps are so big.

I think that the reason is COD is like the Madden of fps. Average Joe thinks its made by god and that's all they buy and they don't realize its not really that breathtaking or anything. It's not a "bad" game at all but its a cult. I quit after MW2 years ago, it just felt like repeat then and haven't gone back.

Black Ops 2 was amazing
Ghosts was terrible

We are getting a new Modern Warfare this year and it will probably be somewhere in the middle, but feel less entertaining thanks to Titanfall and Destiny

So let me get this straight... the TC has NEVER played a single COD game... and claims he doesn't understand the hate it gets?

Literally can't think of a reply to that.

CoD is super popular and sells well. Devs & publishers chase the money, so when they see rehashes and map packs and the sales of CoD they tend to want a piece of that cake.

It isn't good for gaming, imo.

It is also a game that is pretty "hyped" every year by certain gamers, which just winds people up. It's kinda why I'm more down on Titanfall than I should be, considering I may actually buy this - which is not likely with any CoD games again.


Well if people buy into that piece of the cake they aren't any better than those so called dudebros.

I was a sucker for AC, bought every title at launch, but I am finally burned out on the franchise if it continues the route it took w/ AC3 and AC4, won't make me look down or feel contempt for anyone who still buys and enjoys AC5 though.

Well where is the hate coming from if someone NEVER touched it? I cant hate a book if I never read it. I also cant say a movie sucks if I've never even seen it.
So yes.


This isn't the olden days where the expression "don't judge a book by its cover" holds any weight. It's obnoxiously easy to watch wholesale gameplay walkthroughs of a game on [insert video sharing method of choice] with any electronic device nowadays. Granted, video games are better played than watched, but with internet armchair reviewers, readily available streams of gameplay, and so many other outlets, it's balls simple to generate disdain for anything.

My dislike of COD isn't the rehashing. It is the fact that it is a twitch shooter disguised as a tactical military shooter. And real tactical military shooters like the ghost recon and rainbow six series have pretty much CODified themselves or disappeared all together. I miss my realistic shooters.

"First feel free to look at my GT and PSN, I haven't even touched a CoD game once"

And that explains why you don't get the hate..you haven't been burned year after year with the same slightly improved..and sometimes even worse game. If you were to go back and play the first Modern Warfare...you would find that very little has changed over the last near decade.

** And I would love if they brought back Rainbow Six to its former glory...I miss planning every little detail of a mission...of having your favorite old British man (Eddie Price) killed on a mission. Rainbow Six used to be beautiful.

Don't buy it.

Don't hate on people who buy and enjoy it.
