What a coincidence! It is a bad time to be a racoon fan as well. :)
But on topic, I think these games are good for the industry. People seem to get in the holiday game buying spirit once the big FPS start to come out. Look at the sales! Plus the COD games are usually so good that it makes the other companies have to step it up a little just to be competitive. Uncharted, Gears, Skyrim, Zelda, Rage, Battlefield, etc. Look at all these great games that are out or coming out. I do not even remember another time in gaming history where we were getting so many great games! Plus it show that big budget games still have a place in the world along side the cheaper iphone games that are being made now.
So I would have to disagree at this point.
