Modern Warfare Is one of the biggest innovators this gen...

Looking back I can't see how anyone can deny it.

So many games have taken one thing or another from it, whether it's the XP system (tons of games use it now in both single and multi) or just the controls. How many FPS control exactly like CoD? Exactly. Play Modern Warfare then load up Borderlands. Same controls.

Modern Warfare just controlled more smoothly. Look at an FPS that came out before COD4 (Resistance for example...which BTW the sequels control like COD4) and compare the controls. COD4 is just better.



Haters gonna hate though because they hate the truth.

I...I guess this can be considered "trying"? I dunno, maybe a 4?

Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

No trying.

It's the truth. Tell me how I'm wrong if you can.

No game this gen has been as important to gaming as CoD 4. The hermits up here will disagree but who cares....

So Modern Warfare is innovative because it copies the standard "Earn this amount of XP and you unlock something!" and uses Medal of Honors control setup?

Yeah Call of Duty is as innovative as I am the president of Pimps and Hoes incorporated, Call of Duty didn't do much else than copy Medal of Honor.

Perhaps Modern Warfare (CoD4) itself, as it was the birth of the major console following, but those that came after could hardly be considered innovative.

Not at all a COD fanboy (i don't even play anymore) I don't see how you could deny MW's impact on the industry over the last 5 or so years.

Yes it gave breeding grounds to the neckbeards who are too bad at every other game.

MW didn't innovate jack OR ****. MP was a thing LONG before CoD even existed.

ALL the CoD of nowadays did was mainstream a cheap online MP mechanic and barebones FPS controls.
