Sabotage Times - How Call Of Duty Ruined Video Games.
Now we’ve got Modern Warfare 2/Black Ops and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 being the most played multiplayer shooters. They both just have teams shoot at each other for about 10 minutes, and then tally the deaths. The skill level for such shooters has dropped due to the addition of ‘perks’ and weapon modifications such as ‘rapid fire’. Now if you have a character in Modern Warfare 2 or Black Ops who has a sub-machine gun with the rapid fire attachment and the perks made for a sprinter then you can sprint around dodging shots and the rapid fire attachment means even if your opponent is more accurate, you can get more shots in. It completely removes any need for skill. For me this destroys any idea of fun I had with these games, they basically play the single-player for you and the multiplayer is based on pure luck more than anything else. A game journalist who goes by the name Total Biscuit had the greatest description I have ever heard for these games, “It’s Angry Birds in FPS form”, referring to the simplistic repetitive nature of them as well as their massive marketing.
