I'm amazed that there's anyone who thinks that CoD is more milked than Pokemon.
Nintendo look at pokemon and said " I'M GONNA MILK IT!" /Sarcasm
All I can see is Wreck-It Ralph with a cow.
Also, Capcom is notorious in this right as well when it comes to Street Fighter. Megaman may have had it's sequelitis, but it doesn't have 15 different versions of 2 and 17 different unreleased in U.S. versions of 3.
Pokemon has been releasing the same game twice at the same time over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again for years and years, buuuuuuut unlike CoD they add "NEW" pokemon each generation. Its not much of a change, and they really dont put that much effort into the series, but that being said, pokemon is still better at milking its fanbase than CoD because they add NEW content to the SAME game every generation.
As I always tell them, when Pokemon starts charging you for downloadable Pokemon, new areas in a particular region, and extra Master Balls, then you can assume it's stooped to CoD's level.
I do agree the games are a bit milked but CoD now is just a cash cow that's being milked for every penny's worth of it, and it'll continue to happen until the current demographic finally pulls their brains out of their asses and throws the middle finger at Kotick.

Auto heal is the amateur's medpack.
Either way it's seen, both series are milked. And both series have fans who love to re-buy the same game over and over again.
Pokemon spin offs like Mystery Dungeon, Rangers, Snap, Rumble, PokePark, or Dash are not counted when people say pokemon. They are there own games, lack pokemon and generally can't be traded to the main line. They are akin to calling Super Mario 2D & 3D a milking of Donkey Kong.
Are you seriously telling us...an Action-RPG(Rumble), a Pet-Raising game(Park), a Phtography simulation game, and a Mystery Dungeon game are the EXACT SAME THING as a turn-based RPG game?
The Sims and Singles play the same. The Sims and SimCity has the same basic concepts. Halo, CoD, BF, HL, et all play the same. All the Pokemon games mentioned there? They dont. It's like saying Diablo and the Sims are the exact same games.
This has got to be one of the most fail post I've ever seen, and I've seen alot of fail post.

I think i have to ask you to "check your brain-age"
There are quite a few more than the amount of CoD games on the 360 than those you have listed. I just wanted to put my own tidbit of info, since yours seemed quite off. Nice use of "personally know" to make it seem like those were the only ones there when you and I both know that it wasn't.

Considering I responded directly to his factually incorrect statement that there was 9 cods on consoles I think nothing out of order was said. The key words here is ON Consoles Not the pc platform, not the handhelds but the consoles.

Then you need to determine what a fail post is. The analogy you missed simply is that the brand names link it back to the franchise it is apart of reguardless of the genre it is in. Ex: I honestly don't care if the zelda fanbase outcasted the Cdi zeldas. They are still zeldas games *THANK GOD they will never see the light of day though*.

I think the fact that there are countless Pokemon toys, merchandise, tv shows, trading cards and films shows that Nintendo milk the brand moreso than Activision with COD. Not complaining, I enjoy the Pokemon games, and had loads of other merch when I was younger too.
That said, how many films are there? 12ish? Who's actually watching these?
