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.

I agree with everything you said. If someone derives fun from something, be it a linear FPS that plays like terrorist whack-a-mole or doing hours of integral calculus equations, by definition it is beyond reproach because the person is enjoying it and isn't hurting another soul in the process. This whole "all the idiots who buy CoD every year" stuff is tired. And no, I am not a codblops fan - I haven't played a CoD game since United Offensive, though I own a few more that I never got around to. I think I may have played a few levels of CoD 2, but not much more.

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

Verno and Creston always make good points; it's others who seem to go out of their way to be derisive of gamers who dare to enjoy CoD.
