It seems lately all my friends are very "fatigued" of buying new CoD games for some reason.
My friends list used to always be populated with everyone playing the new CoD but I'm not seeing that anymore. It's almost like the excitement just isn't there anymore.

Has Activision bit off more than they can chew? Is CoD headed down the path of Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk?

I'm personally loving the multiplayer and feel that Treyarch has done a great job piggybacking off IW's work from CoD4 and MW2.

If Activision would back off it would be fine. Let ONE developer make the game instead of pumping one out every year.

Its going to end up like Guitar Hero, but it will take a few years.

Yep it totally is!

I mean 500 million dollars in 24 hours? Yep. The series is going down.

Each game performs better than the last? Yep. The series is going down.

R.I.P. CoD!

My favorite game of the year

Last year about this time, this was posted repeatedly about MW3.

This year BO2 came out and made a pile of money.

Nope. As horrible as the games are now, casuals don't notice/care and will keep blindly buying them.

I've been playing the CoD multiplayer since the first game on the PC.. Back then both parts of the game were incredible--I tried the multiplayer as an afterthought and ended up playing it for months and months, which I hadn't done with any shooter since Doom 2 (I am old.) It was just as addictive without the XP and crap.

I still play it every year--I think it's possible somebody could knock them off their perch ("realism" has never been less important to the franchise, which is funny because it's so kinda "realistic," sort of,) but that's the only way.
