I agree but I am holding out hope for this new title. Its built on an all new game engine designed around the new Xbox. This new title will probably be the last straw for me on whether I divert away from COD or not.

From what I have read it is not a mw4 like everyone was expecting. It is developed to grab battlefield players over or back over to the COD platform. Obviously its going to be a huge success and one has to look at how these shooter games are developed. I will use COD for example...


There are three important stages to making lets say Black ops 2.


1) Probably least important now a days...campaign. Campaign used to be the reason we all bought games. We would play over and over and campaigns used to last for hours on end! Now they are shorter, just utter crazyness and the majority of players are moving to other parts of the game.


2) Zombies...there is a huge crowd for zombies. So when they developed this game they needed to tailor around an improved zombie play that will keep players intrigued for hours on end. What other game modes can they come up with like zombies?


3) Multiplayer...This has always been the holy grail of any mainstream FPS game. COD was inovative in the past by being the first to start challenges. This is usually the point at which people love or hate the game. I personally think the people that usually hate it aren't good at multiplayer or have a specific niche they like. Unlike Halo COD is more solo strategy. You dont have shields and relying on teammates is often worthless anymore. Halo you can take a lot more hits and often running around with a team is going to give you a more positive outcome then solo.


So when we look at how they come up with a game, we must understand that these games now a days are so complex because they are trying to hit a huge audience. Not everyone is going to like it. The developers are trying to find new ways to get people who dont like it intrigued back into the game or people that have jumped to a different game (Halo or Battlefield, etc).


I believe that this Ghost game needs to have a new edge. Vechicles in multiplayer? New challenge structure? Different game modes? Different types of weapons? Is it going to include improved quick scoping for the 12 years olds! No pun intended but I feel like every night I get into a lobby and the ones that quckscope haven;t hit puberty yet.


What do you want to see in this game or dont want to see?

I think you answered your own question there. A "new" game released every year and yet people still rush to pay $60 for a few minor updates to what is otherwise the same exact game they paid $60 for last year. Know what us old school gamers called that? Expansion packs. And we paid $25 - $30 for them.

I would like to see destroyable environments, and an open world playing field. Sorry, those would be borrowed from BF3, which I ironically hate.

Don't like it don't buy it. Simple as that. No body is holding a gun to your head.

Unable to open the link here at work, but from what I am understanding is that this game IS NOT going to be available for the 360? Also, can anybody tell me if this is made by Infinity Ward or Treyarch? Don't want to spend any more money on Treyarch crap (although knowing me, I will buy it anyways and just complain about how terrible it is and still continue to play it) and not wanting to spend $400 or whatever it will be on a new game system.

And I won't, my issue is with the hordes of people that accept mediocrity as a gift from the gaming gods, thus insuring that mediocrity will continue to be churned out in the future. Fortunately, I think more and more people are waking up and refusing to put up with EA's BS

I understand what you are saying but there are plenty of innovative games for people like you (not being demeaning) that look for more then just main stream FPS. Business is business. A company is going to produce a game that will cost the least and get the most sales...tweeking the game year to year with as little money invested. They wont change it to much because it isnt broken. Year after year they shatter their own sales. A new developer needs to come out with something more innovative to change the mold. I play other games then just main stream FPS games, but my friends do not. So I find myself playing COD/Halo games year after year and still enjoy them. Yes they miss something new but they are still well desgined games.

I have played Black Ops for 260 hours online. I paid 60 bucks for the game. That is less then a quarter an hour of entertainment. I find that to be a great investment. (Yes I play a lot but I have ADHD and it is the only thing that will calm me down to sleep at night). I consider my self a hardcore gamer, but I appreciate the main stream games as well as the underground. It could be a lot worse you know!?

No I get what you're saying, I'm just getting on my soap box in regards to annual release games and such And I think Kickstarter is doing wonders for developers that really want to make a good GAME vs making money (though they'll probably make more money off their games than they would if they contracted under a publisher like EA). And who knows, maybe this new CoD will end up being a breath of fresh air. One can hope
