People complain about the game and yet still play it?

I'm amazed at how many people that complain abot MW2 still play it, I see Youtube videos where people keep talking about what they should change to make it better, but if they are still playing then IW don't care surely? There was a petition started by some youtuber to get snipers to always be one shot kills, apart from this being a balancing issue they wouldn't change if they really wanted to make IW sit up and listen isn't the best way to stop playing? As long as it's still the most played game then they aren't going to do anything about it. 
 
I'm also amazed at how entitled people feel to having a game patched, it doesn't say anywhere on the game that you have to like it, or that they have to make it so you do. If it's a game breaking issue such as matchmaking issues or glitches then they will get patched, but asking them to edit the power of guns, or the health you have is ignoring all the hours I'm sure they did balancing the game. IW don't owe the owners of MW2 anything yet people seem to think that they do.

I always feel like these complaints are, really, just a product of playing the game too much, too competitively. I understand that's sort of a slanted view on things--some people are just competitive by nature--but this hyper-serious approach to Modern Warfare really ruins the magic of the game. 
 
And it is a game. And the purpose of this game, like any other, is to have fun. 
 
Modern Warfare, for me, is best when I play it intermittently at most. I'm not there to pick apart the balance or analyze the nuance behind killstreaks and team momentum or anything of the sort. I'm there to kill dudes and to enjoy myself. When I stop enjoying myself, then I'll stop playing the game.

Why do people buy the game and say its terrible, i mean come on its like the 6th one you should know what its like by now lol...  
In regards to weapons and stuff, theres a lot of them so they gotta find some way to make them different. every gun pretty much has the opportunity to easily kill someone. i actually take joy in using some of the lower tier weapons caz it makes it more enjoyable when you get a kill. (akimbo, silenced mini uzis ftw)

Just like most people boycotting the game suddenly are playing the game. 
I know a few people myself who did cave in not that long ago..  
 
But I don't get the "I don't like this game, it sucks, let's pay for it"-attitude. 
That's fucking dumb. 
That's like some of the Sonic fans when they found out about the Sonic 4 stuff. 
 
"Well, we wan't the original Sonic remade and stuff. So to show Sega that, we're gonna buy the first Sonic game, instead of the first episode of Sonic 4.. Harh harh harh!" 
What Mastermind came up with that plan? 
Retarded McMoron?

I don't play it anymore.

I didn't like it so I sold it. I, too, don't understand the mentality of hating and playing the same game. Give it a chance and then take action from there. Like someone above said, games are about fun. If you aren't having fun, then the game isn't worth any more of your time. Get rid of it.

The problem with that logic is that all of IW's games had been much tighter and much better developed than MW2. After Call of Duty 4 came out it was a no brainer that Modern Warfare 2 would be tightly balanced and generally better produced after how good the previous game was and how much they had learned since then. And when the game comes out and its still a hot mess 4 months after release its a huge problem and with the ability to patch a game it deserves to be fixed. As for the weapons everyone of them should be fairly balanced. A gun is a gun and bullet is a bullet, its not an JRPG and human bodies are not exactly durable enough for bullet calibers to matter and the maps are not big enough for distance to factor in as much as it does. But the way the game handles guns that should be similar deal damage in varying degrees and have range issues that are non-sense. Say for instance if you have a SPAS-12 and I have an M1014 you shouldn't be able to kill me because you're farther away and that it deals more "damage". Same 12 gauge shell in a damn near similar gun a few feet away should not matter because the only differing factor in the weapon is firing speed.

I don't complain and play it.  I like the game.  It's fun.  It's only on the internet where people act like it's the worst most buggiest game ever.  If those idiots would actually sit down and play it for a while they would find out that 99% of the games are glitch/bug free.

I see your point. I complained about it endlessly and still played it for hours but never enjoying it. So I traded it in and never looked back. 
 
I really missed COD4 when I traded that in too early, I can't say I've missed MW2 once.

I bought it and sold it within a month... hated the multiplayer. I'm glad i got out before all the people started exploiting and using hacks.

LOL so true... 
I hate MW2 but i still play it with friends... I play alot more of cod4. MW2 is campers paradise, i think everyone agrees with me on that.

I think MW2 is a decent game but I enjoyed COD 4's multiplayer more.

If this surprises you, you must have never played WoW. No players feel as great a sense of entitlement as WoW players.
