Turns out that Modern Warfare 2 is a pretty dumb name for a video game. It’s actually a bad name for pretty much anything. When it was revealed that it would say Call of Duty on the box inerest in the product skyrocketed. Now I’m not one to normally criticize others for giving something generic boring titles but, Modern Warfare 2 is a boring and generic title. It sounds more like a description for a show on the military channel. When was the last time you watched the military channel? Probably never. Because it’s boring. They might as well have called it, “Shooting Guns 2: The Sequel to Shooting Guns”. Modern Warfare works only as a subtitle because people expect subtitles to describe what the product is to a certain extent. Just look at Call of Duty: World at War. If it were just called “World at War” no one would ever want to play it. What on Earth has propelled Infinity Ward to simply call it Modern Warfare 2. There should be no controversy about this. Since it’s now on the regular edition’s box you can call it what it is, a Call of Duty game. Quit being all pissy because Activision lets another team work on games called Call of Duty. There are enough people who realize that if the box doesn’t have the Infinity Ward logo on it that it’s not as good as a Call of Duty game can be. Hell, calling it Call of Duty 6: Modern Warfare 2 would be better than just Modern Warfare 2.
