A new live-action trailer
(commercial) promoting Call of Duty: Ghosts is titled "Epic Night Out,"
offering a stark reminder of just how ill-equipped we gamers are to fill the
action-packed roles we take on in games like the military shooter sequel. The
clip shows a crew of couch potatoes going all Michael Bay on their enemies
without even so much as a Hot Pockets break, though realism is restored when
Megan Fox appears on the screen as an uber-gamer.

It's gotta be cool to make your money that easily. Copy / paste 95% of your code, build a few new set pieces for your meager sp campaign, DONE!
Personally my COD days are long behind me, but if people enjoy it, and they obviously do with how much it still sells year after year, is there really a need to hate on it for the sake of it?
If you're not dropping the 60 bucks does it really affect you all that much?
The games that sell the best have a significant impact on other games. That's why regenerating health, two-weapon limits, aim assist, radar, kill streaks, etc, became commonplace. If something sells well, others will copy it. So yes, the purchasing habits of others does affect me quite a bit.
Kill streaks and aim assist, at least aim assist on consoles was there long before COD, it'll be there long after.
ARMA isn't like COD,Bioshock Infinite isn't like COD. Battlefield is certainly not like COD in that it has vehicles and vastly different game types.
The Gears of Wars and other similar games would have been made regardless I think. Until I play an RPG that forces me to only take 2 weapons and has cover shooter mechanics, I think we're safe from evil COD infecting everything else.
I get what you're saying, but there's enough diversity out there with or without COD imo.
