What if Captain Price is the bad guy? It would explain why Shepard was so intent on going after him, why he was already breaking out of jail when you found him in Russia, why he launched a nuke that will go on to cause World War III, and that would make him the one dude the trailer talks about causing the whole mess, anyone else think this is possible?

I hate the thought of that, but I love it too! Mixed emotions, and I think it would have to be a battleaxe to the face to top the knife in the eye from the last game.

Dammit! Are you the same person who made this same topic around the beginning of this year? Even if you aren't, my answer is still the same, he isn't the bad guy. I wonder how many people didn't understand the MW2 story...

In the first game, you were slid a gun, and you shot... that dude, in the face.
In the second, you were slid the gun, then it got kicked away!  So you killed... that other dude, with the knife in your own chest!
Logically, when confronted by Capitan Price, someone's gonna slide you a gun... then your character is going to shoot HIMSELF in the head!
...spoilers?

More like Call of Duty only has a single Persistent story element, Captain Price.

First-person suicide. Only place there is left to go. They even teased it briefly in Blops.

from what i remember the US was already being invaded by russians before the nuke went off in MW2.   So no he's not the bad guy.

Shepard went after Price because he was a corrupt power hungry monster trying to manipulate both sides. Shepard got what he deserved. He was trying to vilify Price in the end but Price is obviously not the bad guy. That would be stupid.

Did you pay any attention to the games whole plot? I don't mean to sound like a dick, but this is *very* unlikely.

But by shooting off the Nuke it made everything worse. While only really saving Keith David (So it was totally worth it)

ROTFL. there is no way this would happen. Price is not the bad guy.
#22 Posted by JTMosh (258 posts) -

That nuke isn't going to start WW3. Russia was already well on its way to doing that when they INVADED THE UNITED STATES.

Sometimes it astonishes me how much I care about the Modern Warfare storyline.

It made all the Russian helos in the area and stuff crash and not be able to cause more havoc.

I think it would be a REALLLLLY stupid and contrived plot-point and any chance of me liking this game would be gone.  They explicitly show Shepard being a bad dude in MW2.  It would be ignoring big plot points of MW2 if they did this.  Seeing Price and Soap do awesome shit and take down Makorav and clear their names is the pull pull now for me.

What I could see happening is the game starting with a mission where you are in a team of SEALs or SAS members and hunt Soap and Price and whoever they have with them and end up being killed, then Price or Soap stand over you as you die and tell you they aren't the bad guy, and that they are sorry.

Highly unlikely but would no doubt be the biggest "fuck you" from a developer since MGS2. 

i just hope we don't play as the SAS again. Just so good ol' fashion Her Majesty's Royal Regiment yelling "Oi You cunts!".


... I didn't read the story note leaked on Kotaku but now I hope the Queen of England is actually the one pulling the strings, and Price is the illegitimate bastard child to the throne, and from the events of COD4 you were actually trying to establish the new 21st century British Empire. Ok. I'll stop now.

It would be upsetting, but at the same Time, I totally could buy into Price's brand of crazy.
 If they did that and could introduce some sort of moral choice about whether or not to help Evil Price (His hair is black instead of brown.) then that would be kinda awesome.

@niamahai: Your idea is also not totally out of Modern Warfares scope.

I'll give you that... it is a MW game, anything totally could happen! ;)

Maybe thats why I love them, because they are bat shit crazy. Oh shit, EXPLOSION and RINGING IN YOUR EARS!

Eh, either way it will probably be better than any of the movies coming out the summer :-/ It will at least last me longer.

#31 Edited by bigsmoke77 (788 posts) -
@Mikemcn: If he didn't launch the nuke Russia would have steamrolled the American army. They were able to fight man to man better with all of the Russian equipment knocked out.
#32 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

He probably is. He already let a nuke go off in the second one. He's probably going to fuck up again somehow, but on purpose.

#33 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

I would just refuse to play the game. Once I saw that, I'd be like "fuck this" and sell the game. I've gotten so bored of the MP already anyway.

The only way Price will ever be a bad guy is if he were to get rid of the mustache.
