Which best describes your feelings on Call of Duty?
I personally enjoy COD myself. Just wondering how a poll like this would play out. You very rarely see people on the internet state a negative option about this series in a polite and objective manor, so I'm wondering how many people will pick B rather than C.
CoD: Decent Singleplayer
CoD2: Rehash of that decent singleplayer
CoD3: Haven't played
CoD: Big Red One: Haven't played
CoD: United Offensive: Quite offensive
CoD4: Awesome singleplayer and addictive multiplayer
CoD WaW: Lame
CoD MW2: Fun campaign & Spec Ops but unbalanced multiplayer
CoD Black Ops: Kinda OK campaign but a well balanced/slow paced multiplayer that got old quick
CoD MW3: ?????
Those are my feelings on Call of Duty
I don't think I'm as big of a Call of Duty fan as most but I've played a reasonable amount of CoD, I've had a good time with it and I can certainly respect the step forward it made for console FPSs. Now though, I'm just really worried that either Activsion are going to run CoD into the ground squeezing every bit of cash they can get out of the franchise along the way, or worse that there's going to be a long line of generic, subpar CoD games which still make money just because they have the Call of Duty name attached to them.
A. Really loved MW's single player. Ghillie in the mist and Mile high club on veteran. And I actually enjoyed the maps and the unbalanced multiplayer of MW2. Hunting for boosters in free 4 all. Blops just didn't stick with me the same way. I don't like the maps as good as MW2s.
Really liking the fact that BF3 will have open beta. Looking forward to it.
I don't think any gamer can rightly deny the importance Call of Duty has in the current state of gaming, nor can they deny the immense influence the series has over the gaming markets. From both a design and marketing point of view, Call of Duty changed things, whether it be for better or worse.
Moreover, they aren't bad games, as much as people want to disparage them. I think the hatred we see festering in corners of the gaming world stems more from the title's incredible success and repeated saturations of the gaming market, two probably wholly unfair reasons to dislike a video game.
I have sometimes played Call of Duty games, and I have sort of enjoyed them. I liked COD 1 and 2, as well as 4. MW2's singleplayer was allright, but I didn't buy it. After trying some Black Ops this weekend during the the Steam free weekend, I will be getting MW3. It's the perfect idiotic game to shoot some people in for 20 minutes when I don't have the energy to play a proper game, like Battlefield.
Post Battlefield 3 I probably won't give a shit about MW3 though.
Battlefield 3 currently has my attention. However, CoD is Cod and I will pick it up because my friends & fam will be playing it.yup, this I'm afraid
I wish they developed a new engine, I know it's difficult to do, however with the millions of dollars of profit they make on each game there really is no reason for them not to be able to innovate more

next gen CoD will blow your balls out!
I'm a great fan of the franchise. Playing it ever since the first game came out. It's an awesome game, no doubt.
Yet I have to agree with the masses that it's been recycled for too long. As I watched the E3 gameplay footage, I though I was actually watching some new MW2 stages. They all look the same since CoD 4. I guess the more-of-the-same formula applies for most gamers in the case, but I think they'll get fed up soon or later. Gamers like changes. Positive ones. Call of Duty stays with it's old flaws and rarely introduces something new. And since everybody copies from it, the FPS genre is getting more and more casual nowadays.
I think they are good games, but I don't like Activision's approach regarding expensive DLC and subscription based services. However, if MW3 won't improve drastically over Blops then I'll be fairly disappointed.
Oh, well. The more people buy Battlefield 3 the better.
