Op Ed

IncGamers - 'Over-appreciated' Games of Our Time.
Like Angry Birds, Black Ops’ sales figures may be mind-boggling but its content is most certainly not. At least, not in a positive sense…

The single player is hideously uninspired and fails to innovate (or even iterate) on what was present all the way back in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the plot is told in a sloppy, incomprehensible manner and if I have to put up with another round of poorly (and stereotypically) voiced Russians I vow never to play the series again.

I know bashing over-popular games is sort of what we DO around here, but...

...does this article strike anyone else as terribly self-important?

Angry Birds, The Sims, and Modern Warfare?

Yeah, Angry Birds and The Sims are wildly popular and very casual games...but they never put on airs of being anything else. For what they ARE, which is exactly what they are meant to be, they're outstanding. Modern Warfare is much the same - its SEQUELS are vastly over-appreciated, but Modern Warfare?

The author of that article seems to think that the definition of "over-appreciated" is games that lots of other people liked and he didn't - I'd reserve that title more for games like Modern Warfare 2, Mass Effect 2, DA 2, Oblivion - games that sold like hotcakes yet failed to even TRY to meet the potential that had already been reached by their progenitors.

Seriously - if there's games for Android that are so amazingly better than Angry Birds for killing a few minutes, I'm all ears.
