I'm a pretty big gamer

I've been gaming my entire life. I'd go so far as to say I'm a "core" gamer. And as such I have to make a declaration:

I fucking hate the Call of Duty franchise.

And I have specific reasons for hating it.

One of the reasons is because, since the release of the first Modern Warfare, they've just released the same fucking game over and over and over again. Now don't get me wrong. The first Modern Warfare game was a landmark game and it was really really good.

But, I'm sorry, I can't tell the difference between it and its sequels. They release the same game every year with a new coat of paint and people gobble it up.

It's helping destroy the first person shooter genre. There used to be a time where FPSes were unique. Now 85% of shooters that are released are just bad Call of Duty clones. That's why I play Halo. Have there been some Halo clones? Yes. But you can at least tell Halo apart from its clones. And there aren't anywhere near as many Halo clones.

Call of Duty's multiplayer blows.

Let's ignore the fact that every game's multiplayer is fucking ridiculously broken for the first 72 hours of its release.

It's the most unbalanced multiplayer I've ever seen. That's another reason why I play Halo. Because everyone starts off on a level playing field. If you wanna get the best weapon, you damn well better beat the other mother fucker to it. I don't wanna get killed by a dude with the one weapon perfectly designed to kill me because this asshole has less of a life than I do and jacks off to Call of Duty's multiplayer constantly.

Not only that, but Call of Duty's multiplayer takes zero skill.

85% of kills in Call of Duty online are lucky. Because it takes two or three fucking shots to the body to kill someone. It's a game of who sees who first. That's all it is. Sheer fucking luck. To compare it again to Halo. When you take a shot at someone on Halo you have to be convinced that you are GOING to take this person down. Because if you don't they still have a chance to fight back.

I can't wait for Battlefield 3 this year. Because that game is gonna blow Call of Duty out of the water. It'll show those fuckers at Infinity Ward, the three or four that are left, how to REALLY make a shooter.


  1. I am a gamer too. Ever since the NES days and still today.

  2. I wouldn't consider myself "casual" or "hardcore". I don't play online games at all, but I also don't play bejeweled. I see what you mean about COD, and I can understand why "core" gamers may be frustrated, but for me the bottom line is that it's fun enough to waste a few hours on, so that's good enough for me.

  3. CoD is a game that will never compete in professional bracket, I was never a big CoD fan either. The first CoD game I bought was Black Ops just to play with my friends, as long as I didn't play for it hours and just left after a few rounds, I'd say it wasn't thad bad. It's cool to have some fun time to time but not a game that I'd love to play every day. Incase, I'm actually more interested in RTS/MMO games, but I heard Bf2 Bad Company was quite cool, so I'm looking forward to Bf3 aswell ^^

  4. Battlefield 3 is going to be amazzzinggggg

  5. i also dont like the cod franchise...

  6. I hate CoD too. I never understood why other guys would play it and neglect their women.
    For that reason I love it when a new one comes out though haha

  7. Agreed on CoD, I played a lot of BF:Bad Company online and thought I'd give CoD a go. It was awful. Looking forward to BF3 though

  8. I was never HUGE on the COD series myself. I borrowed MW from a friend before my xbox ringed, and I just recently got MW2 on my PS3. It's fun to pick up and play every once in a while, but honestly I can't sit down for days on end mindlessly playing it.

    Honestly I miss my 360 for Halo 3 the most. Never got a chance to get into reach before mine ringed :<

  9. BF3 is gonna be so sick, cant wait! ;D

  10. i hope the new MW is legit.. black ops was boring

  11. i agree with you man, call of duty sucks ass

  12. i knowwwwwww. bc3 is gonna kill call of duty. the trailers look sick

  13. BF3 im thiking will take the crown of FPS
