What the hell...?

 

Call of Duty 4: MW IS THE NEW COUNTER-STRIKE.

 

Anybody who says otherwise, I will kill you.  Virtually.

I don't play multiplayer, so that may be where the difference of opinion comes from. I don't really pay attention to 'balance' against bots.

For FPS action against other humans, nothing beats Planetside. Nothing even comes close. It's the game that pulled me away from Counterstrike.

I feel the same way actually. CoD4 and MW3 were fun, but the ones released between those two not so much. Blops was total garbage, and MW2 and WaW were just OK.

I don't care to see the end of Call Of Duty. I would like to see the end of Call of Duty as we know it, though, however unlikely that may be.
Robert Bowling didn't have much to do with the game itself, but he was one of few links between the developers and the community. Being that he resigned, he either felt so much sympathy for the community that he didn't want to deal with it anymore or he was tired of being on the receiving end of the vocal part of the CoD community (those who have been wanting change since what they did to MW2). Or he may have just wanted to move on. I guess I really don't care in the end.. xD
CoD4 was a lot of fun. I disagree with MW3 being fun, though and Black Ops being garbage. It's the other way around for me. MW3 caters to bad players way too much for it to be fun for me and Black Ops had a really good sense of balance compared to MW2 and MW3 which did make it fun. Still had its flaws but not as many as MW2 and MW3.

I actually liked Blops. I still play it today. I don't know why I like it, I guess it's because it's not exactly modern warfare, but it's not WW2 either. It's the Cold War, which is refreshing.

Oh and I'm going to leave this here for all of the Robert Bowling (FourZeroTwo) haters.

This isn’t just some hobby that they did for years… this was their jobs. Day in and day out they worked to give you the best experience they could. They’re one person at a company of, I believe, thousands of employees.

They can’t control everything. They are employees at large corporation given directive from executives and management. You are absolutely out of your ******* mind if you don’t think they go to bat for the community in their meetings with what we want. But at the end of the day they are employees of a large corporation and you support what your company decides to do regardless of if you agree with it personally (so long as it’s an ethical decision).

Robert has spent 7 years being the punching bag for IW and Call of Duty. If you think you can hold a candle to the job he’s done, by all means submit your resume. I would love to see you respond to EVERY SINGLE PERSON that you claim is his job to do… quite frankly you would fail miserably if you even think that’s possible.
Couldn't have said it better myself. The MW community is s****y. I have no idea how he put up with such a crowd. Seeing stuff like that on a daily basis could admit a guy into an insane asylum. Seriously.
Retribution.

Elaborate on what's ironic about his title. Because I honestly don't see the irony in it.

If you asked me COD did nothing for the FPS genre but ruin it, now everybody is copying COD which is making the FPS mediocre and boring, I just want old school fast paced FPS games which made the genre great.

COD4 was great and so was COD:W@W. It went downhill from there. There hasn't been a single one worth the time since then. IT all coincided with Bobby Kotick joining the company and starting to speak publicly. Who told that guy to speak?

IW should of fired him a long time ago, he will ruin Respawn Entertainment if they allow him to be community manager. All he cared about is the console version and forced people to follow him on twitter to hear about upcoming patches.
