Furthermore, in my opinion it's doubtful that even if Activision moved away from making yearly CoD games they would instead fund anything any more appetizing to PC gamers' tastes, so it's hard to make the argument that people buying CoD are somehow depriving us of anything of any more substance or depth.

The problem isn't Activision making Call of Duty. The problem is with everyone else ALSO trying to make Call of Duty.

If CoD stopped selling so well, Activision would still make it, but hopefully we'd see fewer of the shitty wanna-be's, and maybe the other publishers would invest in some different IPs.

It's unlikely, I know, but we can hope. That said, it's not right to put all the gaming industry's woes at the feet of Call of Duty. Like I'd said before, a lot of kids buy it because they get one or two games per year and they get it because they know they'll love it.

Beamer also made the point that if you're into competitive online play, Call of Duty is really where you HAVE to be, since that's where most everyone else is.

Even with all that, though, I'd love to see them do at least something new. (Though apparently Treyarch made some tiny baby-steps in that direction in the campaign at least. Who knows, I may buy another one in five or so years at this rate.)
