Thought I'd mention a little bit about Call of Duty today.
I know, it's a talentless game that has come to embody everything that is wrong with American culture, etc. Regardless, it is still among the more polished FPS titles out, mostly thanks to their framerate fixation.
Anyway, I think Activision execs need to be drawn and quartered. Their massacring the franchise, somewhere along the likes of Guitar Hero. A title a year, what is this Madden? How much more can you stuff into a game box. Why not include new content as DLC?
I fell in love with the series at CoD 1 for PC, and immediately realized it was superior to Medal of Honor and other competing franchises.
At this point, I think Modern Warfare 2/Black Ops are the climax of this hysteria. Mw3 will be the swan song, especially without IW.
Fuck you Activision.
