I hate Cod, and it truly deserves bashing. It's just horrible, I mean, look at it:


OT: COD is fairly fun, but very repetative, with really short campaign. and its been the same since COD4.

but i play Killzone 3, the best FPS of this Gen, so i dont have to worry about call of duty too much

Some of those are not justifiable; the rest are subjective.  The FPS genre has been fairly stagnant in regards to gameplay. COD's the most successful FPS, thus being the "face" behind FPS' atm.


I would rather look for the "ass" of the FPS genre then.


Shouldn't matter which body part of the FPS genre it is, so long as it's quality. 



I know im going against the mob but COD MW3 actually looks slightly interesting, I love they are including other countrys besides America this time. Im looking forward to playing as a German Soldier. 



Call of Duty is hated on because they've created an atmosphere where everyone thinks they're 'great' at the game.  Activision has made it just like World of Warcraft.  Dumbed down and easy to play for everyone (Some people would argue that's not a bad thing).   It's hated on because it's just like a dumbed down sports game.   

Many of us have memories of getting face rolled in Goldeneye 007 until we learned the game and got good enough to stand on our own two feet.   PC gamers know what I am talking about when we speak of a new player in Counter-Strike.  

Much of this genre has never been this fast-food FPS that Call of Duty has presented. 

When you add onto the fact that Call of Duty is released yearly with the most minor updates(Like many sports franchises)... (Changes in perks and new skins for the same guns) And lastly it's absurd over-whelming popularity is embarrassing.   You have a recipe for people to dislike the series.  

 

To add a real life flair to it, It just seems like this new generation of individuals (Especially in the United States) is just so engrossed with getting what they want, when they want it without having to work for it far more than previous generations behind them.  It's also a generation which hasn't been taught the value of winning and losing, They've been told their special regardless.   They're the most technologically advanced generation with technology to do tons of things at the palm of their cell phone yet many of them know less about the technology than youth in the 1980s.

Call of Duty is an example of where society has gone and eroded to.  Easy access,  Minimal challenge,  Excessive hype,  No one loses all the time because we're all special players. 

 

 

On a side note,  I really enjoyed Modern Warfare (The Original).   It was different, unique, etc.  After Call of Duty 5, MW2, Black OPS being pumped out like Guitar Hero expansions, I officially can't stand the series.  It's ridiculous.  It's the same shit re-skinned and repackaged for $60.

I don't think so. While both are definitely over rated, Call of Duty takes that prize.



There's always that option called "not buying the game" than buying it, getting disappointed and hating on it.

COD has now become the guilty pleasure of gaming, the people who predominantly hate it, buy it, enjoy it and then feel silly for getting swept into the phenomenon, and so ultimately hate on it. And the cycle repeats each year.

how so?  Call of Duty is known to be a "basic shooter with a lot of polish" and that's what it is.  Nothing more than a simple FPS game with little in the way of innovation, but what it does it does real well.  It's grounded mostly in reality, but there's plenty of modifications, realistic graphics, simple but awesome gameplay, etc.  Halo IS praised as some sort of game-changing messiah, like it did so much for the genre even though it was the same:  simple but well done.  The only thing worthy of the praise it gets is the Halo theme, which is truly epic.  besides that, the game is as generic and simple as you can imagine.  No creativity with the weapons, no customization, etc.  It wasn't until Halo 3 came out with Forge mode that there were any significant improvements to the series.  

that's what I call overrated.
