No. The hate on Cod is pathetically unfounded on this board.
Pokemon IS Milked much more then your average franchise.


Spinoffs maybe but main titles CoD is far more milked.


Sigh*

On the Ds.

Pearl
Diamond
Platinum
Heart gold
Soul silver
black
white
Black2
White2

9 games. Quite a few a slightly different version of each other.

Cod4
Cod waw
Codmw2
Cod blops
Codmw3
Cod blops2

6. All of which are sequels to their respective games (Cod modern warfare alongside Waw) It's not even a contest.


Your right. CoD is for sure,milked since nothing changes with each game.

Sure but the difference being that Nintendo doesn't realistically expect you to buy both versions of a pair (and it's not particularly necessary in the DS versions anyway with all the Wifi connectivity.)

So it's more like:
Diamond/Pearl/(Platinum)
HG/SS
Black/White
B2/W2

Which is 4-5 depending on where you want to put Platinum.

Where on the flipside Activision really does expect you to buy every CoD game.

Call of Duty and Angry Birds would like a word with you.

Seriously. I walked into a Walmart yesterday and found Angry Birds air fresheners, for heaven's sake.


I saw Angry Birds stuffed birds in Walmart.

From CoD 4 through MW3, the multiplayer evolved very little. The only redeeming quality was the Zombie mode of Black Ops.

Wtf they still expect both versions to sell and are counted as different games on this board and on sales charts .That point is irrelevant.

In reality though is that each generation's first set is just one game so:

1. D/P
2. Plt
3. HG/SS
4.B/W
5. B2/W2

So it's basically five games that come out every other year or so with additions to the past entry.

While CoD went

1. CoD 2
2. CoD 3
3. CoD 4
4. CoD WaW
5. CoD MW2
6. CoD BO
7. CoD MW3
8. CoD BO2

And those have been getting a yearly release since 2006.

I can't believe how upset and in denial people are about Pokemon being milked. It is so milked. After a certain time, Pokemon has never gone a single year without a title to release. I'm amazed that someone said Zelda was more milked, when it rarely gets spinoffs, has no significant merchandising, and actually went through several years without a single original release. I mean, look at the releases.

1996 - 2
1997 - 0
1998 - 4
1999 - 6
2000 - 4
2001 - 1
2002 - 2
2003 - 4
2004 - 5
2005 - 4
2006 - 5
2007 - 3
2008 - 3
2009 - 8
2010 - 3
2011 - 3
2012 - 6
2013 - 2

Compare it to Zelda.

1986 - 1
1987 - 1
1989 - 2
1991 - 1
1992 - 1
1993 - 3
1995 - 2
1997 - 1
1998 - 3
2000 - 1
2001 - 2
2002 - 3
2003 - 1
2004 - 2
2006 - 2
2007 - 3
2009 - 3
2011 - 3

Since 2000, the Zelda franchise has been absent in 2005, 2008, 2010, and 2012. It has never released more than three games in a year. In only four years has Pokemon NOT hit that number. And Call of Duty?

2003 - 1
2004 - 2
2005 - 2
2006 - 1
2007 - 3
2008 - 3
2009 - 3
2010 - 1
2011 - 2
2012 - 2

And several of those games are just different versions of the same game, such as the DS, PSP, Vita, PS2, and Wii versions. If you combined all CoD games, it would match the number of games released in the three most popular years for releasing Pokemon titles.

Explain to me how Zelda and CoD are milked
