I stopped taking these games seriously years ago; when they stopped being quality video games. But I must be butthurt, right? Beause COD couldn't possibly have become a generic, mediocre, predictable and unchallenging video game franchise.

And I know what role Activision plays. I believe he implied that he's applauding Activision.

While competitive COD might be slightly more challenging than pub, it's still, by far, the easiest FPS to dominate at. Call of Duty is like tee ball.
You are EXTREMELY butthurt. You just typed out like 3 paragraphs explaining why you were. Don't try to defend yourself now on it lol.

Its not slightly more. If you have never played any form of it you can't knock it. It is just as difficult as the other e-sports out there that make tons of more money than it does.

The COD series just gets progressively worse. They put new skins on the same game, don't fix prevalent problems with the series, and the only thing they add is new perks every year.

COD4 was by far the best multiplayer game of the series. Best spawning, most balanced maps and weapons, and best killstreak system. WaW and MW2 were decent, everything after that has been ****. Hell even in MW2 you had OP weapons that they never addressed, and maps where the team who spawned on one side had a distinct advantage.

Are you for real? Just because it was long(ish) doesn't mean that I was upset. If you can't see that then I don't know what to tell you.

Its pretty obvious that you were mad when typing that out. Anyone who can read can attest to that.
Not sure what to tell you on that one.

I was a little disappointed initially. Not, at the game, but at what you typed. Which is why I responded. I don't know if you thought what I typed was harsh or what, but it's true. And, if you're satisfied with COD at this point, I guess all I have to say is have fun.

I'm not satisfied with CoD, anymore than I am with any other major title right now. They are all being used to nickel and dime the market and every one of them ****ing sucks. BF3 was a piece of ****. MW3 blew ***. Most of these "new revolutionary shooters" are clunky garbage that die after a month.

I always have given Activision one thing: They found a niche in the market and they exploited the **** out of it. CoD has the one thing Halo never did; longevity.

Even then, most of the console kids I know are getting tired of it. They're getting tired of everything. The most recent release I can think of that was great was Forza 4. CSGO is possibly great. GW2 is possibly great. Borderlands 2 will probably be excellent. And, after that, I don't know. The market is stagnant right now. Period.

I think what Activision should do is admit CoD is at its end, and release a game with all the maps, most of the game modes, everything with cross platform play and developer tools for PC. Keep the cross platform to a single mode, casual, whatever you'd want it to be. PC can keep their die hard ****. Console kids are happy. You're looking at the next CSS or UT2004 right there.

I beg to differ. Maybe from the big 2 (activision, EA), but there are scores of great games out there. Just look at the Free to Play renaissance that is happening right now. It's a PC only movement right now, but you can bet your *** we'll see it on the next gen consoles if not current gen. Also, we are in the longest period we have ever gone between console genrations. That has a lot to do with the lack of innovation in console games, and all games in general.

By stagnant, I meant good games.

Free to play is big right now. It also sucks, 90% of the games in it will be dead in less than a year, and the few big name companies with games in it are only ****ty nickel and dime games.

Free to play does not, and should not, produce any different kinds of games than a regular. It's just a means for us to never have games with mod tools and fully open server browsers.

Sorry to be a pessimist about it. I don't see F2P going anywhere but down.

well lol, i used to play competitively on the pc in mw2 and a few small xbox tournaments. i never won anything but i regularly played against top tier teams(on the pc) that did win tournaments and would give them a run for their money i guess. i was basically the best semi pro ish(game battle ish) mw2 player for the first few months of its release.

but then i played for the top bf team in NA and went like 23-0 w/l combined in tournaments in BF3, i was sponsored by razor and quantic. even still lol, i didnt win much money wise and only got a few hundred bucks worth of free ****. i had teammates who streamed and made videos, people like rivalxfactor, that actually made a bit of money from things like that though.

i like cod and have played everyone since the first one, but its really not that difficult to get into the competitive scene. sorry nerds. seriously, what major competitive game is easier than cod? i mean ffs last time i went to an mlg event you retards on the xbox used stun grenades. how is that **** not banned?

in competitive bf2142-bf3 matches i was about 70-7, won 4 tournaments and was the top of a few different ladders. i would also beat top european teams using their servers. i used to play for iconic back before and after their site/sponsors shut down, and i used to play for rival but then realized competitive fps is going way downhill and got bored and left. but yeah, going from playing people like michael3d/team hot, who have won more money in gaming than you community college nerds have made in your entire life, to playing kids on mw2 in small tournaments and scrims before their super important gamebattle match..........yeah idk its a close call i guess

Well FPS should be on its way back. With mlg not having any of them last season and all these releases coming up I can't see how they won't have one or two of them in the next season. I wouldn't be surprised if all 3 showed up.

I'm kinda on the fence about the new black ops. MW3 really let me down and I kind of have a gut feeling the new black ops has a good chance of doing the same thing. MW3 campaign was awesome but I hated online multiplier. I personally only use a sniper when I play and I felt that ever map on MW3 was far from sniper friendly. I just hope black ops 2 has well rounded maps like in COD4 and Blk Ops.
