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.

People aren't necessarily idiots for listening to Justin Bieber either but I can think it says something about the state of music. I bet if I went through your posts I'd find a similar "snobby" attitude about a popular concept that you don't particularly care for, it's something we all do.

I don't see why its "snobbery" to point out that they aren't trying to do much with the game anymore and that the forced yearly schedule might have a negative impact on the quality even if people keep buying it. If CoD is someone elses comfort food then whatever floats their boat but people don't have to respect their opinion as some sacrosanct thing that one can't ever criticize.

That's not snobbery, but "Hey, if gamers are stupid enough to buy this crap" is. You can criticise people's opinions, that's a fair point, but some go further than this and imply that the CoD players are flat out wrong, as if the CoD player is somehow mistaken in thinking they enjoy the game.
