It's probably actually some dude sitting in the grass or running towards the camera or something.

At this point, "Call of Duty: Jurassic Park" might not be enough to make me care if the gameplay still consists of super-linear do-exactly-what-the-yelling-NPC-says design. Being told precisely what to do, where to do it, when to do it, and how to do it just got old.

...and I wrote that, completely forgetting that most people actually buy these games for multiplayer, at which point I still don't think I'd jump back into CoD when I'd much rather play Titanfall.

I'm hoping they're not planning on having you play as a PMC because romanticising PMCs is pretty gross, Activision.

At least MGS made them the bad guys.

Uhh, hmm well it has to look very different from Ghost which is the first CoD game I haven't played because compared to everything else it looked so very Meh.

I'm still way more interested in next year's game, which is Treyarch's, I assume. Well, that's assuming that they keep doing the branching story stuff, or build off of that, which would be cool.

Unless it has hella dinosaurs in it. Then I might...

I really hope dinos are a big part of the game and not just a funny little background thing like in Titanfall.

At least that way they could rename the series to "Call of Cash" which would work on so many levels.

I'd imagine if there are dinosaurs in the next COD it would be a replacement for the co-op zombie stuff that was in the previous games.

While im mostly looking forward to Treyarch's next game (i really like Blops 2) hopefully sledgehammer can add their own twist, Dinosaurs could be neat but future PMCs seems like it can be bland. I was hoping that the WW1 rumors i was hearing about were true....would love a ww1/ww2 game again.

It's just going to be Frank Underwood isn't it? God that would be great. Call of Duty: House of Cards.

I'm pretty kind of interested despite myself? I guess we'll see Sunday, but Call of Duty is still so big and still so fun enough.

There has already been an evil PMC in the past Modern Warfare games and the teaser doesn't exactly show them in a positive light, they'll most likely be the baddies in this one.

That trailer is very on the nose. It's just missing the cheeky nod to camera.

^^ I agree with all of this. Campaign spectacle isn't enough to make it worth drudging through the boring "follow me and do this" gameplay loop.
The multiplayer hasn't been especially great since CoD4, either. Throwing more unlockables or a slightly different progression at it doesn't make it play better.

It feels weird that no video game tackled this without being jingoistic. And it's not just being cynical, it's being smarter...... man kinda amazed I'm hyped for a CoD game, even Modern Warfare 1 took me a while to get into until my friends gave me positive feedback on it.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. No numbers, just a statement of "Hey, remember Modern Warfare? This is advanced from that".

Still not excited enough to ever want to pay $60 for another explosion-filled heavily-scripted shooting gallery of a campaign and the same twitchy multiplayer that the series has always had, but maybe this will make up for the apparent bummer that was COD Ghosts.

Everything about this game is irrelevant as long as the game design and the interactivity are as linear and shallow as ever, using the same goddamn ancient game engine.

They're serving us a a cold uncooked meal for the 15th time on the same dirty moldy tray, it doesn't MATTER what the story behind this meal is, it stinks very badly and can no longer be eaten.

I like Call of Duty, the stories are stupid and they have bad half-baked ideas. But, overall I like playing the multiplayer. But, Jesus, all of this just looks REALLY, REALLY bad. And, I'm sure people tried really hard, they had good intentions of making something interesting and fun, but it just so agonizing bad.

I'm not sure who some of you folks who like this are? Are you plants by some media company to hype the game? Are you just people with really terrible taste? I really cannot fathom how anyone can look at what has been leaked so far, and think any of it is beyond the worst drivel every slapped together. And, like I said, I struggle becauses it is obvious people worked on this and did their best...they worked hard on this...but it just such a terrible swing & miss.

...Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away
And knowin' what to keep
'Cause every hand's a winner
And every hand's a loser
And the best that you can hope for
Is to die in your sleep"

You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run

...Its is time to fold'em and run Activision

I really hate it when they model characters after real people. So dumb.

Anyway, this looks kinda cool. I like that they're gradually just becoming more and more crazy and unrealistic.
