I mean... I know the hype was outrageously annoying but I am addicted to the game still. I loved Modern Warfare 1 about the same amount back in the day.

Cause

#3 Posted by tallTuck94 (553 posts) -

Because Battlefield bad company 2 is ten time better

#4 Posted by raiz265 (2239 posts) -

because i play games on a pc

#5 Posted by jkz (4040 posts) -

Although I don't hate it, my issues with it stem from its severe balancing issues and poorly designed maps.

It's cool to hate popular things, first rule of forums.

'Cos it's fashionable to hate.

Because people don't like all the exploits and bugs that it had back in the day apparently (Care Package glitches, unlimited ammo etc.) so they call it a bad game... I however love MW2 still. Sure you get campers. But what do people in Bad Company 2 do also? Camp? That's right.
 
The Stimulus pack is not the best, but oh well. Sniping in MW2 actually feels good compared to COD4.

#11 Posted by kermoosh (911 posts) -

i've always liked the battlfield serious better
 
but mostly, i get pissed off every game whether i do the best or worst 
 
so i said screw it and sold it, i've been happier ever since

Camping isn't as effective or rewarding in Battlefield BC2 as it is in MW2. They're both good games, though.

what? 
 
it's a freaking pain compared to cod4
#15 Posted by MAN_FLANNEL (2462 posts) -

1.  PC gamers are going to troll on it because of the $60 price tag, no dedicated servers, and no mods.
2.  ALOT of people played it, so alot of people are going to bitch about it.  Every game has it's bitchers.
3.  It had some unacceptable glitches.
4.  It is cool to hate popular things.

#16 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Because people like to hate anything that is popular. It may also have something to do with the glitches it has/had.

 
I still like to play it with friends whenever I'm bored though.

#17 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

COD4 has better maps and the killstreaks weren't so extreme.

#18 Posted by CornontheCobbe (2645 posts) -
@raiz265: I guess we agree to disagree. I dunno dude, i find it's better in MW2 than COD4. Just the whole feeling of steadying the sight, and holding your breath, taking the shot, quick scoping, it's all a more faster responsive, and better feeling to me personally. I feel satisfied when i kill someone in MW2 with a W2000 or Intervention. However i do miss the good old R700. Good times.
#19 Edited by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Because it is unbalanced. The map design is poor, and the spawns are ass. You know the spawns suck when it constantly spawns you with an enemy directly behind you.

#20 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Maybe some of them just don't like the game as much as the majority? 
 
 
Aaah, I almost had you there, didn't I? No person in the world could possibly dislike a game at all.  
People who are only into only one genre of games don't even exist in this perfect world where everything is liked by everyone :D 
I wanna smoke what everyone seems to be smoking

#21 Posted by PirateNeal (269 posts) -

i hate it because i spend way to much time playing it....
 
and just when i finally get to the point and think about playing something eles , they release new maps....so i gotta go

#22 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

people are going to hate it. the PC people are going to hate it even more because of the $60 price tag, no mod support, no dedicated servers. one reason why i don't like it. i got it for the ps3. there are some server/ peer to peer problems.

#23 Posted by Atomasist (2818 posts) -

I would not say everyone hates it, but rather some do not like it because they can.

#24 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

I fail to understand this. I have not played the multiplayer in either game, but the single player in MW2 was everything that MW1 was trying to be, only much better. MW1 is more revolutionary, but MW2 is a much better game.

#25 Posted by VoodooTerror (607 posts) -

multiplayer is just broken, and then when they fix it, some hacker just breaks it again

#26 Edited by Apathylad (3067 posts) -

Modern Warfare 2 had stupid marketing behind it that put me off. Strange to claim that the DLC will help combat 'mapathy' when two of the maps are taken from an older game. Also, calling it a Stimulus Package while jacking up the price of the DLC only turned me away from the game, rather than drawing me to it.

#27 Posted by Jeffsekai (7042 posts) -

Because it's a crap over hyped game.

I would tell you to be more of a dick, but I think you reached the apex with that comment.
#29 Posted by gimmysumcowbel (418 posts) -

It's a really good game however it has its share of problems.  One, its broken!!! Two, it can be incredibly cheap/frustrating.

I just agreed with everyone else about not being able to dislike the game because it's just not someones kind of game. 
I thought it was cool to agree with everyone?

Whether this is truly your opinion or not, I think it's funny how fanboys will hate another, similar, game outright for no good reason and when they come upon someone else's valid argument against said game, they just repeat it over and over when asked why they don't like it.
#34 Posted by Walreese55 (508 posts) -

Because some people are assholes who hate shit if they are bad at it or refuse to even play it. I dislike mw2 because I feel it doesn't live up to CoD4, but I certainly don't hate it. It doesn't have the flaws other shitty popular games had, such as Halo 3.

#35 Edited by OllyOxenFree (4976 posts) -

I love MW2's single-player and Spec-Op missions but the online multiplayer needs fixing.  Leveling used to mean something in CoD4 but now anybody can just 10th prestige.  Plus there are numerous bugs and exploits that can ruin a match.

People who do not like a game and people who hate on a game are not the same people. The former will simply state that they do not like the game, and will give valid reasons. A person who hates on a game will go into hysteria and will declare a game to be abysmal without supporting it with valid criticisms and reduce their arguments to petty insults. There is a key difference.

Ah, I see. 
Well that cleared up a lot, thanks for that. 
Although I do think someone out there could hate it and have a valid reason to do so. At least one person
#38 Posted by evanbrau (1162 posts) -

The people who complain about things are generally part of a vocal minority which is almost always the case online. I only pay attention to it for the psychos who really flip out at the thought of people enjoying/not enjoying something they love/hate and MW2 was an absolutely peerless generator of nerd rage so I definitely appreciate it for that. I liked the game but can definitely see how someone who encountered the glitches and stuff online could hate it and will always have a good laugh at them melting down on line, I suggest you do the same.

Because of all the millions of people who bought the game, their cumulative IQ is probably about 52. Or am I being generous?

#40 Posted by Cramsy (1173 posts) -

I really like it :) 
Since the title update I'm getting nothing but awesome connection to every game I play. Having really good fun 

#41 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18954 posts) -
@ZGoon:  
 
  • The first game was more innovative and original and less glitchy and took everyone by surprise and made people jizz nonstop 
  • Humans tend to praise the first part of a franchise and diss the sequels 
  • Humans tend to diss extremely popular things because huge popularity means the product appeals to almost everyone (lots of "dorks" and "noobs" included), and nothing is special about it 
  • The whole 'no dedicated servers' shitstorm made it clear that Activision is a big dick and so we should hate Activision and it's biggest game 
  • The single player was ridiculous
  • The multiplayer is ridiculous. all the fucking air strikes and weird ass shit that makes u die once every 5 seconds unless you camp.
  • Bad Company 2 is GOD next to the MW2 piece of shite.

Yea your being generous, its more like a 48 which some people call "mentally retarded".
#44 Posted by Monkeygb21 (192 posts) -

It is a good game, just not as good as others that did not receive the same hype.
 
But my complaints are:
1. Poorly paced single player with far too may dumb twists.
2. No matchmaking (on PS3 anyway) in Spec Ops
3. Unbalanced, buggy, and glitchy multiplayer. 

#45 Posted by natetodamax (19212 posts) -
Because it's a broken game with awful maps and terrible gameplay mechanics
#46 Edited by tunaburn (1891 posts) -

i loved modern warfare 1 but i hate part 2 because of a few things.
1. the stupid one man army noob tube class. omfg thats annoying
2. the maps are just bad.... so unbalanced and just boring.... 
3. glitches glitches glitches
4. more camping than any other shooter ... yes even bad company 2
 
oh yea, dont get me started on the BS killstreaks.....
the chopper gunner is ridiculous and kills the game for me.... not to mention being able to get one with a stupid 4 kill streak care package

#47 Posted by cstrang (2381 posts) -

'Cause it shipped out buggy as fuck and isn't as good as CoD4?

#48 Edited by Coombs (3449 posts) -
I can't believe the hatred that keeps coming to the Stimulus pack.
Seriously,  IW actually listened to the community, Since the game came out what have people been saying they wanted for dlc? COD4 maps,  Thats what the community has been saying for months, And now that IW has listened and given us exactly what we have been asking for what does everyone do?   They bitch about the fact IW is giving us "old" maps.  
 
@ReaperOfLiving said:
" The community and lack of team coordination.  Besides I get killed by computer ran "killstreaks" more then people anyway. "

Get a friends list of decent players & stop running out where the helicopter flying overhead is going to kill you.....
And if you can learn not to just run out in front of the guy racking up that killstreak you can kill him before he gets it.

 Play and have fun, Or don't and STFU
#49 Posted by jmrwacko (2443 posts) -

I feel like IW took what was good about MW1 and shat on it. Specifically, weapon balance, good map layouts, and a fair kill streak system. They added death streaks, which basically make players close to invincible after just a couple of deaths (painkiller, lol), BUFFED the noob tube with danger close and added new noob tube options (thumper, etc.), made ridiculous kill streaks that kill the entire enemy team five times over (AC-130, chopper gunner) or end the game entirely (nuke), and there's absolutely no environment destructibility or improvement in graphics over CoD4.

#50 Posted by carlthenimrod (1596 posts) -

Because it is popular. Even if you don't like it there is no reason to hate it.
