If you’ve been skipping them how do you know they haven’t been decent?
I got ghosts on the cheap second hand and played for a week and sold it, same with WW2 except it took almost a month.
BO3 was great, played that game throughout the year. Advanced warfare was good for 2 months until all the issues became known and I couldn't stand playing it anymore. And I completely skipped and didn't buy Infinite Warfare, but from what I've seen of it it was terrible.
At this point I can tell whether I'd like a COD or not without playing it.
Fair enough. Life's too short, and there isn't enough time to play the games we want to play, let alone the games that turn us off.
That said, my pre-judgment of IW was way off the mark. After watching the trailer, I figured the game would be generic and uninspired. I found it to be pretty great. That's the campaign though. If you're a multiplayer guy, then you made the right choice skipping.
