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?


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....


Please elaborate on what mechanics you are specifically talking about and what games they were originally introduced in and then please explain how modern shooters are incorporating those into their games for any reason rather than trying to be the next CoD

Killstreaks? Did CoD come up with them? No. Did CoD make them mainstream/profitable? Yes
Loadouts? CoD original? No. Did CoD make them mainstream/profitable? Yes

Please look at mp in games like Halo 4, Far Cry 3, hell even Gears, and tell me they aren't trying to copy CoD

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.


Kill.Switch

Every time Gears and cover shooters come up that game gets named as the originator along with WinBack.

Just because your memory sucks doesn't mean anybody else has your lack of memory.

The bulls*** argument of "b-b-b-but they made it popular" is only used by blithering little fanboys who just got their incorrect theory handed back to them ripped to shreds.

That's why any game with a cover based mechanic is called a Kill.Switch or WinBack clone, right?

Killstreaks, Unreal Tournament, both mainstream and popular long before CoD was ever a wet dream.

Loadouts, Ghost Recon, both mainstream and popular.

FPS multiplayer just like CoD done in more than a dozen FPS games over the years, including PC game mods, all done before CoD ever came out.

What the HELL is the point of praising CoD for being nothing more than a thief stealing ideas from other games?

Probably Reach. Makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

Others? Nearly all Halo and CoDs:
-MW2
-MW3
-BlOps2
-Halo: Anniversary (not having CE multiplayer like they led everyone to believe up until e3)
-Halo 4
-Perfect Dark Zero
-FF13 (but it's not as bad as I thought it was gonna be; it gets progressively better from Chapter 7 onward)
-Ninja Gaiden III
-Resident Evil: ORC
-Resident Evil 6
