Why Call of Duty is BadCall of Duty Activision Console Gameplay Platform FPS War Commentary Analysis Valve

Do you guys agree?
I can see the formulaic approach Activision takes with Call of Duty from a mile away, and normally wouldn't mind, but lame business practices are the main reason why I won't buy another CoD game. Overpriced content and yearly releases (focusing on deadlines rather than quality) are just too off-putting. Your money is best spent on Valve and indie games that innovate and buttfuck the consumer significantly less.

I do find the whole, enemies popping up, annoying. Like, killing guys in an area, moving forward a bit, then they're back. It sucks...
I don't think CoD could possibly do as well as it has if you still had to use health packs but I'm not sure.
I played a game at HMV the other day, Sniper Elite I think it was? That was fun as hell but again, health regenerating. I feel that, that game really should have health packs and such in it. It could make it so much better. All the more reason to snipe from the shadows and be undetected.
Perhaps it'd be an idea if CoD had a new setting so there are health packs and no health regeneration otherwise? It wouldn't do well in multiplayer I don't think, unless again, there's a game type which has it.
I do enjoy CoD regardless. Although anything by Treyarch I will avoid. I dislike World at War and Black Ops very much.

Let's wait to see if they overhaul the series. Chances are that will be later rather than sooner. They can't possibly release MW4, right? Right guys? Right?

Maybe they'll drastically change the game. But with the large amount of shooters out there, how do you go about making one that isn't like someone elses? How do you make a shooter game original again? Maybe it isn't possible.
Meanwhile, DICE and 343 Industries are having no problems. They have a fanbase, they serve the fanbase, and offer new players a chance to dip their toes in. If they don't like it, no hard feelings, thanks for trying, have a good day.
Activision? Don't like it? Missing something? Tough, you paid £50 for it, so you get what you're given, ciao fella. Call of Duty is like a poorly run business with high customer service. The product is shit, but is made by skilled induviduals - and the fat, smoking CEOs are paid, so theres nothing wrong.
And to Ossy's point about hating Treyarch - I don't like them much either - but only because they are deep in Activision's pockets. They made half the Infinity Ward guys quit. I really hope they win their hearing, and get all the money they are owed. Best outcome for me? Activision to be removed, and a new publisher to take the fight.

I want to know when there will be a Call of Duty Laser Warfare! That'll be fuuuuuuun XD
I'm wondering if Blops 2 will be any good or if it'll suck ass too...
My friend doesn't like Treyarch either. They made CoD3 apparently and that was good. So I want to know what happened to them honestly. Perhaps Black Ops and WaW would be "good" in my opinion if Infinity Ward hadn't come around the way they did.
It was really ridiculous that IW brought in $1b for MW2 I think it was? Then they were laid off... That's messed up.

Here is my opinion on treyarch though, THEY MAKE AWESOME CAMPAIGNS, but they fucking suck at multiplayer, My favourite Call of Duty campaign ever has got to be World At War, it was just magnificent but I do also have a soft spot for world war 2. They're multiplayer on the other hand sucks.
If I had it my way, modern warfare would be over, Infinity ward would also be over, treyarch would scrap the current system and start a new call of duty series.

I've liked the campaign for MW, following Soap and price and their various buddies. However, now that that is over, I'd be delighted to get into the Black Ops, especially if this is a good one.
Then again, Halo 4, Fary Cry 3, Max Payne 3... I might not need another CoD!

But seriously? We finally get something futuristic, and it's just people fighting with the usual guns against fucking robots?
No thanks -.-

I love the games. Love'em love'em love'em.
I used to be completely obsessed with Halo. Used to go to my friends just to play it really. Then I tried Gears, I was terrible, but I bought it, and now I domin-omin-ate.

And jets are lethal to everything, if you know what you're doing.
Still, better than CoD hands DOWN MOTHER F***ER

And a skilled player has a much stronger tank than a low/medium skilled, so stands much less of a chance - then there is the opposite effect, that a measley level 17 can take out a Colonel-80 in 1 shot with no chance whatsoever.
My clan only has 2 tank drivers now: the co-owner and another high level member. I'm stuck in a jet, IFV or infantry (my favourite! ), because we need more infantry to take out AT squads.
It's strategy right?
