Does CoD take skill to play?

You'll be hard-pressed to find a game that doesn't take any skill at all. CoD does take skill, though only a very small amount.
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

Okay well the jury is out on this one. To those in this thread that have been stating that it`s only a matter of connection issues for those placing highly in matches on a consistant basis (with high points on the board) then what about the people who can still get a high number of points while having a poor connection typically?

Also, if your connection was better, could you get really high killstreaks? Is a splitsecond delay from a bad connection the only thing stopping you from getting that UAV?

Yes. Anyone who says no i would easily demolish all of you versus me and you know it, or actually you don't know because you don't actually play CoD.

It takes like three bullets at most to kill someone, so it's more just reflexes and some luck on who hits the other first

Don't play, nor like COD, but every game takes skill to play. Some are just more 'adapted' to these games than others so to them it seems like it does not
Try harder next time,
Good day sir/s

Pleasant suprise then, since this thread actually didn't turn out to be a troll thread.

I can't believe the stupid people that voted yes.
No, cod doesn't need skill, games like BF & CS in those you need skill.
Gamefaqs its now J-Faqs, especially the PS3 board.

I think if you play the game TRUTHfully, then yes. (no aim assist or manipulating other glitches)
Dont all games take some sort of "skill" to play?
I think if you say "No" to that then you are one who assumes that anyone can just pick up any game and play it and be good at it.
When that is clearly not the case.
