Sorry). I have heard this age-old baseless haughtiness for years of being a musician because if you like music genre 'X' then you are an idiot or if you don't think genre 'Y' is crap then clearly you don't know good music and yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah. Arrogance through self-attributed superiority isn't anything new; it's as old as the hills. I bet cavemen probably belittled the other cavemen who liked the simple, colorful cave paintings.
Everything is just opinions man and I've seen you bitch about this sort of thing before too about different things so *shrug*
I'm not going to get into who likes what music or whatever but I think there have been some pretty fair criticisms of CoD here and in other topics which get dismissed once a single person mentions the fans. There's nothing wrong with some random person liking CoD and thinking its the best game in the universe but there might be something wrong with an industry where they basically print and assemble them like widgets every year. Does that say something about the people buying it? The industry itself? Who knows what the answer is but I think we used to demand more for our money and I'm a bit disheartened to see its so easy these days.
I don't think this sort of consolidation is good for the long term health of the industry but we'll have to wait and see on that.
