To play the game online. Now let me tell you why I think so. *ahem* it has a long learning curve. Let me tell you why you might not think so. Because COD is synonomous with "BAD" whereas "Skill" is synonomous with "GOOD" and "depth" in de vidyagam.

Which CoD?

The newer ones? No, not in the slightest.

CoD's about reflex. It boils down to getting the jump on the enemy and holding L1/R1 before them, so everyone sprints from enemy to enemy and the games on like that. It's a good arcade run & gun, but really doesn't require much in the way of skill.

Then again, neither do a lot of FPS games or shooters in general these days. CoD gets the worst rep, but the games it's inspired are just as bad.

The only skill that is required in CoD is the skill to yell at the top of your lungs into the microphone after you've been killed once.

Of course it does. Even tetris takes skill to play or you lose. Does it take as much skill as other fpsers? That is harder to argue and i would say no. But it definitely takes some level of skill.

All games take some degree of skill. But with CoD I would say it's more about reflex and connection than skill.

With Black Ops 2 you don't need skill. You just need a bad-mediocre internet connection so you can take full advantage of the terrible lag compensation
