Capturing the essence of Modern Warfare 2?

Tbh, I've had more fun with MW2 than any other online shooter except maybe PvZ. I think the unbalanced broken mess along with the great maps are what made it awesome. Plus booster hunting was sometimes more fun than just playing the game regularly...dat hilarious hatemail.


I loved stalking them and waiting right before they got that nuke. I got so many death threats it was great. I hated that I was booster hunting at the time, but now I miss it. It was great even if I lost the match it was great knowing that I ruined some booster chances of getting a nuke. Hearing them scream on XBL also gave it an extra pleasure.

That one booster-hunting weekend was probably my favourite online gaming experience from all time. Every single FFA lobby had at least one group in.

Favourite way to do it was from distance with the javelin. So much rage! If only there'd been a theatre mode.

But yeah, on the whole MW2 was/is crap - the beginning of the end for the series (though not in sales numbers terms, obviously).

I'm not a real gamer. I enjoy games.

I never camp, but MW2 was the only COD I was actually good at. Loved the maps, weapons, and it seemed to me that people talked more. BTW, akimbo shottys FTW!

MW2 is the only multiplayer game where i've sunk in over 1000 hours, nothing will ever be as good. I sunk a lot of hours in CoD4 though.

Akimbo shottys was one of that games biggest problems they were so broken with their sniping power. I can't tell you how many times I got one shotted from across the map with those.

I'm not sure what the essence of MW2 actually is, but I'm sure we'll see games in the future with equally broad appeal and addictiveness.

As for popularity. I Checked some polls on various board here on gfaqs, and it seems MW2 is battling MW for being most popular.

I think Black Ops 1 was the best. If it didn't have Second Chance it would be near perfect.
