Good god, why are people still playing this mediocre series? CoD and BF are the two most overrated games of all time.
I touched on this in another thread, but I just like having a few arena shooters to play. There really aren't very many options for that these days. Quake and UT are done, and the new tribes doesn't catch the magic of earlier installments for me.
There just aren't very many good options that A) well polished and B) populated.
It's pretty much Counterstrike, CoD, and Battlefield for me for competitive, and each fills a different niche. CS is the tactical objective based shooter, CoD is the arena shooter, and BF is my "really big map and 64 players" kind of hybrid of both game.
Irony is a maginot line drawn by the already condemned
