With the 8th Generation just around the corner, let us all sit back and recount what disappointed us the most these past seven years.

I personally would have to say the "COD-ification" of the shooter genre (All shooters trying to mimic COD.)

What about you?

Most of the stuff in CoD games was done by other shooters first, so why would they be mimicking CoD when they weren't the originators?

sony and microsoft using their power over our digital game rights to screw and scam us
ie Sony: you lose your abilty to use your computer/otherOS, or you lose the ability to play your games
Mcrosoft: no refunds for digital items even if it's their fault

CoD did it the best and was the most profitable for doing it, others wanted to try to ride off of that success, that's who and what they were copying.

Halo 4 being the best/worst example. They tried to make Halo 4's mp wayyyy too much like CoD.

Oh look, it's the bulls*** theory of "b-b-b-but they made it popular".

That's about as stupid as all the little Nintendobots thinking that Nintendo invented the analog stick, the light gun, motion controllers, etc etc etc....

Yeah so, who remembers that Xbox game that had cover based shooting years before Gears of War made it popular?
It's not about who does it first, it's about who does it best. And you should know this.
