Op Ed

SlashGear - Sales Mean Nothing: Call of Duty Has Gone Stale. Thanks HARDOCP.
But Iíve had enough. The Call of Duty franchise has become one big, repurposed offering that gets customers to pay too much for what is essentially a bunch of new maps launched annually in November. Sure, thereís a bit of a storyline and the updates to online gaming are nice enough, but are they enough to justify calling the game an entirely new entry into the franchise? As far as Iím concerned, itís just more of the same.

I'm generally baffled by Bluesnewsers attitude to CoD. Don't like it? Neither do I. Know what I do? I don't buy it. Then again, I buy FIFA each year despite minimal changes each year. Updated squads (rosters), a few gameplay tweaks, a game mode or two added and one or two taken away.

Yet I still get value for money. I've already played FIFA13 (out for a couple of months) more than I'll play pretty much any other game in a 12 month period. The only game that I've played a similar amount is Fallout New Vegas and now that I've completed my 2nd play-through, I won't touch it again for at least a year. But I will continue to play FIFA13 regularly for another 10 months, until I inevitably buy FIFA14.

I can see CoD would be the same for those who play multiplayer. More so, as the multiplayer community for older versions probably dies down and their friends move on.

I've really grown to hate the snobbery on here. People like CoD and they aren't (necessarily) idiots for doing so. It seems ironic that people on here lambast people for being pressured into thinking they like CoD. No, they actually like CoD and if they stopped playing because of your wonderful opinion, then they'd be guilty of what you think they are doing now.
