I think the COD hate is really blown out of proportion what do you think?

No, I can understand the hate. I've never liked fish, myself.

Well, Courtney Gears didn't seem to mind.
88 Fingers Louie were a hardcore punk band. 88 Fingers Eddward was a nickname on Ed Edd'nEddy. Pretty cool reference.

Why would a fish have any impact at all?

Anyway, my little theory on it:

It's not Call of Duty itself that is bad - it's the repercussion it's had on gaming that's been both good and bad.

Good, because lots of people who may have never really played games before are getting into gaming - it's a "gateway drug," if you will. They play Call of Duty, then they play something else that's similar to that, and then something else that's similar to that, and eventually they could be playing something totally different, but still appealing to them.

Bad, because look at "gamers" nowadays. Nobody can just like or dislike a game, and agree to disagree yet remain respectful to each other. While there were those "bad apples" previously, part of me thinks that the whole glut of newer gamers coming in using Call of Duty as their "gateway game" both get the worst of the community by being insulted for simply liking a game like Call of Duty, and add to the problem by insulting people who attack them for playing what they play - which, in the end, would not have even been as big a problem in the first place if the "gaming elite" didn't insult them for playing Call of Duty to begin with. It just spirals out of control, and that's how we got from "I don't like Call of Duty" to "I don't play loli-pedo-Japanophile games!" and "I don't play lol-dudebro-pew-pew games!"


I blame the community for about 70% of the "bad stuff" this generation.

You're asking personal taste TC. It's actually the best that happened for the video game market at large.

Bad ports are the worst thing to happen to the PS3 this gen. I'm looking at you Skyrim.

The worst things that really happened this gen:

Bad Ports and suspicious DLC.



You know...I'm tired of the whole DLC bit now, it was a good idea at first, but it's getting abused.
