Activision killed off Guitar Hero the same way. They milk a franchise by putting 2 - 3 titles out per year that are just copy-pasted and really should just be DLC and then charge way too much for them.

Tony Hawk too.

My guess however is that Activision is actually well aware they are going to kill the franchise eventually but their research shows that this is the best way for them to make the most money in the least amount of time.

Honestly with 20 million copies of the game sold each year they are probabally right.

Good! They don't deserve our money! (not that I paid for any of the games after MW2)

Had Modern Warfare 1 and 2 never existed people would have thought 3 was amazing. You just can't shove the same thing down people's throats every year and expect them to keep buying. Look at Tony Hawk or Guitar Hero. Two other activision franchises that they released so many games in people just eventually stopped buying them at all.
It won't happen next year or the year after that most likely but Modern Warfare/COD's popularity will die eventually. My guess is when next gen consoles come out something else comes along and lights the world on fire and takes it's spot. Maybe even something from Respawn considering they've twice created formerly amazing franchises that were beaten to a pulp by their respective publishers. (MoH as 2015 and MW as Infinity Ward).

I really don't think it was a good game. It caters to cheap players and showers you with unlocks and awards for instant gratification. I liked CoD4 for much different reasons and I don't hate the rest of the Modern Warfare series because they come out once every two years. The people who hate MW2/3 for reasons other than because they can't think for themselves hate it because they have done nothing but take steps backwards in terms of game-play. Most people weren't bothered by World at War or Black Ops because they actually offered something new or different compared to the typical experience, such as zombie mode.

What killed those series wasn't that they were being released so often, but because the lack innovation became apparent much faster because they were smaller markets with a lot less competition. Once games came out that actually showed innovation, such as Rock Band and Skate, people flocked to those games instead.

The point though is that putting your games on a yearly release schedule is the direct reason for a lack of innovation. It's barely enough time to iron the bugs out much less iterate on your gameplay. The only reason sports games get away with it is the leagues work the same way.

Activision promises innovation in the next CoD game, whatever. A new engine isn't going to save the series, its pretty much a copy and paste of previous titles without any innovation (or hardly).

As for the gameplay, BF3 gives you best of both world, wanna play COD style ? Play Metro, wanna play BF2 style, go play any other maps.
Trash O Meter winner is Modern Warfare 1.3 that just got out and you idiots paid $70 for it.

Graphics don't make a game. I agree that BF3's engine is light years ahead of any cod game, but IMO BF3 just wasn't any fun. The single player campaign was a joke, and the MP issues with battlelog and all that nonsense didn't help.

After enjoying most of the modern warfare games, albeit the same game and I only bought them because it would have a larger community than the previous version, I feel that MW3 is complete garbage, at least the multiplayer. I never touch single player anymore for most games. So I can't comment on that, but MW3's multiplayer is god awful

MW3 doesn't even deserve the sales it got. That free weekend Steam did for MW3 probably killed MW3's future sales. I tried it out and it was more broken then Black Ops, which I didn't think was possible. They need to get off that broken engine and make some real advances in the game, not a boring handheld & cutscene filled disaster of a storyline.

COD4 was the last good game in the franchise. It was a great game for competitive gameplay, good PC support, and a overall great game. It was a game that valued skill. Something that these games today have forgotten about. I play BF3 mostly. Is it perfect? No, it's not a perfect game. It still has issues. However it sure beats the hell out of the childish mentality of most MW players. Atleast you can hook up with a solid clan, play 64vs64 and have a real sense of teamwork, and communication. MW series has lost all sense of what teamplay is, and tries to make everyone a one man army.
