PostSubject: Does any one else think call of duty has gone too mainstream?   Mon May 03, 2010 6:18 pm

I used to love COD 4 with a passion and used to play it loads. It was one of those games where if you were bad you couldn't rack up many kills. But now with COD 6 i just think that you can be the worst player in the world and still have a high score.
I am not saying that i want less experienced players to be at a disadvantage, but i think a lot of things need to be changed. The thing that annoys me the most is activation (or whoever it is) trying to make it super easy to rack up kills. They have had a tone of updates some being good and some being absolutely terrible. The reduction of the models strength was an excellent idea, but reducing the damage of the Intervention?? WTF??? juts because people were complaining about being one hit killed?
And the dam death streaks!!! I was one of a nuke the other day just to be killed by some guy who had painkiller??? We frequently asked infinity ward and activation to take out: Mardydom, last stand, juggernaut but instead they keep them in and change the names. WHY???
The kill steaks used to be a little added bonus to your score in the previous call of duty games, but now they win the game, LITERALLY!! Yes i do use the kill streaks and they are fun but i think they have gone a little over kill with the pure amount of kill streaks.
My idea? Just a different game type all about player skill! No perks, No kill streaks, hell no claymores. Just good old fashioned PVP!
What do you guys think?

COD 4 took it the series to the mainstream. I remember the COD games were popular, but not super popular.

They are too overpowered. Soon, the world will bow down to Call of Duty. But since Treyarch is making the next one, it will make the problem a little better.

I hate Call of Duty. The only reason I will consider getting the new CoD is because, and if, they have a zombie mode like WaW did.

Someone who shares the same hates I do. I do, with a passion, hate Call Of Duty. I can get much more fun from a coin-op terminator game.

MW2 is so un-godly unbalanced to the point where it bored me and I sold it. I need a nice balanced FPS after playing Halo & Counter-Strike for so many years.

It saddens me that IW just about designed MW2 to cater for the mainstream "noob" players and made things like camping so easy. The series is ruined for me.

Tbh I wasn't a big fan of COD before COD MW2.
I'd played a couple of the games and thought they were a bit meh but I really really really enjoy MW2 because of the great campaign and fun multiplayer. hell, I enjoyed the campaign more than Halo 3's! (but not ODST's)

Halo Reach will ass-rape MW2 and make Activision try harder in their next game if they want to keep their popularity.

Halo used to be a really popular game but atleast it was balanced. The Reach Beta is almost more balanced than any of the Call of Duty games I've played.
