People don’t hate CoD because it’s always the same, they hate it because Hillary Clinton didn’t publicly recognize gay marriage until 2013 and condemned it prior to that and democrats still flocked to her as a valid candidate. Can you believe that?
@VibratingButtChomper, furthermore, people are furious with CoD because I miss the Donald Trump “pussy grabs back” meme
@VibratingButtChomper, they had us in the first half not gonna lie
@VibratingButtChomper, I just wish people with over 12 ongoing rape/sexual assault charges weren't untouchable when rich.
Every sports game ever is more copy paste then CoD tbh. I don’t even know who buys those series
Most veteren fana of games want their games to be returned to normal. Aka CoD, Pokemon, Fire Emblem and other older series'.
@All my Mizore, because nostalgia
@All my Mizore, I just want sword and shield to give me every pokemon.
@BIessthefaII, we all do...
@BIessthefaII, game freak said pokemon wasnt a priority for them. Fine, it's no longer a priority for me either. Bye felicia
@AWildMagikarp, pokemon had its hay day. In my opinion, it went downhill after gen 4. Could be totally wrong and biased from nostalgia (1997 baby) but I don’t think they need to do a whole lot more with it.
It’s not ever going to be as popular as it was
@All my Mizore, mw2 was my jam. I couldn’t keep up with the exo suits and wall jumping and all the futuristic stuff in multiplayer, it just got annoying. Though I enjoyed the campaigns, like the Kevin Spacey one was cool.
The entirety of Ubisoft's big title lineup: Oh no, I think they're on to us...
At least GC, and UYA added new good stuff to an existing good formula. Deadlocked was a little too different for my tastes, but was still ok. But the future games felt clunky, too silly, and like lesser versions of the games before them. Honestly wish ratchet and clank or jack and daxter would get a true to form reboot. The recent RAC game was good I will admit, but wasn’t perfect by any means
I like games. A lot. Super stoked for FE this month, and am cautiously excited for Pokémon and cod, for different reasons. One seems to be tanking, other seems like it’s trying to fix things, I hope both are good.
Why i stopped playing both, hell ratchet and clank games got boring after I realized its the same thing over and over, stopped playing after deadlock
@Dexios S Divine, that’s when they stopped being good, so you lucked out
@FPVeteranWolf, they were the same thing after the first one really
So in other words, big gaming companies are realising they can make untold amounts of money with minimal effort just like Hollywood. It's sad. The death of creativity and innovation make the world seem like a dull place.
@thatnickguy, it's not minimal amounts of effort. Making a game like COD takes alot of time. They're not all the same. If you played each cod back to back you would easily see the amount of differences presented in each game. Yeah it's go around and shooty shooty but it's different shooty shooty
@delsinrowedent, when you have a huge budget and hundreds of devs working for you, any amount of differences between games is irrelevant and downright shameful when so many smaller companies with smaller budgets, or even individuals can make leaps and bounds in terms of innovation. But I guess that's the trade off - the bigger the company you work for, the less creative freedom you have. You have to do as your told, not as you want/think.
@thatnickguy, but it's not irrelevant though. Look at the past 3 call of dutys. One was in the future and in space, the other in ww2, and the other in the slight future boots on ground with an emphasis on battle royal and zombies. The difference is not irrelevant. It's not shameful "if it's not broke don't fix it". Actual fans don't want huge major changes because we like how it is. They are very different from eachother when you actually play them. I'm a huge fan of the games and play each and every one because I enjoy them. But I hate the "cod is the same every year" because it's not. The people saying that have clearly hardly played the games or only give the games a glance.
And I'm sorry but Call of duty fans don't need leaps and bounds to innovations. In fact we don't even really want them. We like fun changes that spice things up but there's certain aspects the fans don't want to change. It's not only the company holding back inovations it's the fans as well.
@thatnickguy, and about the part where large companies suck away inovation and creativity isnt always true. There are countless examples of big gaming companies cultivating creativity. The "big bad" EA is starting a program to even support indie game or smaller games from smaller studios. Naughty dog is a fantastic triple A developer with amazing games, CD project red is prossible one of the most creative and inovating studios while still being relatively big. And idk how Indies have really inovated games. Yeah there are some really great ones, but when you can do WHATEVER you want then "innovation" isn't really that hard. When you have to answer to share holders and pay alot of people you can't really take huge leaps. If that's what bigger companies did then investors would pull out and boom. Huge games just die in an instant because of investors feeling uneasy. Big companies have to be consistent in quality, while Indies do not. Thats why they can't leap far man.
@delsinrowedent, I respect that, and I haven't played Call of Duty for quite some time. I just like it when I find something new in a game that really "wows" me. But I guess everything can become stale over time. I'm sure they're great games, but I saw all the jet packs and futuristic stuff and just it reminded me of the original Star Wars Battlefront games. And the WW2 just made me think "haven't they covered this before?". BTW, I played those two games to death and loved them, but... look, I'm just trying to say, I don't feel incentivised to pay out AAA prices for things that don't excite/intrigue/whatever me.
@thatnickguy, I mean call of duty just might not be your type of game then. If you don't like it then it's not really gonna wow you. I don't really like battlefield and when I see the trailers I'm mostly eh, but different strokes for different folks. For me I'm glad to pay 60+ dollars for these games because the competitive nature is like no other game. Theres amazing balance (for the most part) and to have fun while still being competitive is something unique to cod. And for the jet packs it was nice because it changed up the gameplay and stragety vastly. For ww2 yeah it's been done but when ww2 came out it'd been 9 years since a cod ww2 game came out and it was nice seeing new maps, guns, and mechanics.
@delsinrowedent, Yeah, I totally agree. But those stand out because they're the exception, not the rule. And I guess to phrase it better - if you're a solo dev, you have 100% control and creative freedom, but the more you expand, the more you lose those things. A sort of example could be poor ol' TellTale. With The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, they were showing loads of promise and generating hype. But instead of doubling down on what they were good at and listening to what the fans wanted, they... they, uh, massively increased the size of their team, tried to create a whole bunch of less popular games at once etc. and well, now they're gone. RIP what could have been. Sorry if none of this relevant... I've sort of forgotten what I was talking about... I am VERY sleep deprived + Y'know that thing where you're fading in and out of consciousness? Yeah...
