I think quite a lot of the criticism is just ridiculous, but Verno and Creston, you both make fair points.

The lack of innovation, well, they're sequels. Isn't that the point? What did Doom 2 add to Doom? A new weapon, some new baddies and new maps. No more than CoD1345 has over CoD1344.

I'd like to see Activision spend the money on innovation with new IPs, rather than trying to mess with what is a very effective formula - and for all the criticisms that publishers get, wanting money is surely the most unjust. Look at something like Arma, that has vast potential but BIS can't deliver after 3 iterations (including Op-FP1), why not develop something like that? Maybe they'd end up with 2 valuable franchises and even if it bombs, they won't go broke.

On a general note, it's easy to say we want innovation, it's much harder to actually come up with something innovative which withstands scrutiny.
