I'm amazed that there's anyone who thinks that CoD is more milked than Pokemon.

Pokemon is the Burger King in terms of selling out Call of duty is the Mcdonalds in terms of selling out.

You know COD has had a game every year? Sometimes 2? The mainstream Pokemon games have at least a few years in between each.


Wait, why are you only counting mainstream? Are you implying that the dozens of spin-off games that Pokémon has don't count for whether it is milked?


At least the Pokemon Spinoffs all have different methods of gameplay.

While every CoD game is an FPS.

Analogies are a poor man's argument. Why is this analogy appropriate? What makes CoD more a sell out than Pokémon? What makes a franchise that in its entire lifetime has had fewer releases than Pokémon has had in its three most active years?

That has nothing to do with milking, and more to do with the fact that many other companies are involved with making the spin-offs.

That doesn't even make any sense.

So you are prepared with an explanation as to why CoD needs to be something other than an FPS?

CoD has also never had a full-priced remake. Pokémon?

Blue
Yellow
Crystal
Emerald
Platinum
FireRed/LeafGreen
HeartGold/SoulSilver

And spread out, looking only at mainline releases w/ remakes...

1996 - Red and Green, Blue
1998 - Yellow
1999 - Gold and Silver
2000 - Crystal
2002 - Ruby and Sapphire
2004 - FireRed and LeafGreen, Emerald
2006 - Diamond and Pearl
2008 - Platinum
2009 - HeartGold and SoulSilver
2010 - Black and White
2012 - Black 2 and White 2
2013 - X and Y

That's a lot of releases for only six main releases.

Wait, why are you only counting mainstream? Are you implying that the dozens of spin-off games that Pokémon has don't count for whether it is milked? What if I told you that only one year in Pokémon's life has a game not been released, and that was in 1997, just after Pokémon came into being? Or what if I told you that 2011 only saw Black Ops, no other titles in its series? That's only looking at video games; did you know that there are more Pokémon movies than there are Friday the 13th movies? And that since 1998, every single year has seen a Pokémon movie?


Milking implies that your releasing the same rehashed thing at a constant interval for a quick buck. Spin offs aren't the same as the mainstream series which follow that "rehashed" interval somewhat. CoD is literally the same game every year, make a few different maps, change a mode or two up, and your done. Its the same with sports series like NBA2k. Milked series are typically games that are bought for one year then once the new iteration comes out are never touched again. Seriously how many people have gone back and played MW3/BLOPS when BLOPS2 came out? How many people will play BLOPS2 once MW4 comes out in a few months? The past 2 years is the first time a mainstream Pokemon game was released in subsequent years and even after they're done they still are played after the next iteration comes out. Im not saying the Pokemon series isnt milked but its definitely not on the level that CoD is.

Because it's boring as **** and shows a complete lack of creativity.

Heck, Gearbox even turned down making a Call of Duty game because "there would be no significant challenge".
