I just don't get how this is actually possible, its as if people are willing to pay money for anything that have CoD slapped onto it, regardless of quality

If you are referring to me, I never said anyone who purchased a CoD game was stupid.

Seems like a pretty valid argument. (if you know what a valid argument means)

And that is not to say a single person buying the game is "stupid", but the fact that the game does in fact get worse ratings, yet the sales go up, so there are a lot of people being ignorant that don't care that they are throwing money away for the same game as last year. And being ignorant and throwing money away seems to fit the definition the word "stupid".

My guess is that up till MW4 the CoD series will do fine in sales and after that it will fall.
If only my friends would play something other then CoD frown.gif thats all they play and i refuse to buy it so i'm a lonely gamer.....

I noticed it in more than one post, so I wasn't singling you out. Though you did say "This is why I hate stupid people" just before that quote so I would have assumed you were of that mindset (if not CoD buyers, I don't know who else you would have been referring to in that post).

As for throwing money away, I really think that depends on the person. To a big fan of the series who plays them for extended period of time, it may be well worth the money to them. To others, it may be a complete waste, but there are plenty of things some pay for that others would find a waste. For example, collector's editions of games often drive up the price to over double the cost of the game, and whether the contents of the purchase is worth that extra money is very debatable. Some wouldn't even glance at the CE stuff if it was free, while others will pay more than the price of the CoD game for it. For another example, look at some of the high end computer parts people buy here. I've seen people with $1000+ in video cards alone, which is far more than 99% of the population would really care about having, yet it's their money and that's what they care enough to spend it on.

In short, while CoD may not be the most cost efficient franchise to be a fan of, if it provides enough entertainment for the people who enjoy it that they feel it was worth the money, then it was. For a big CoD fan, there's no point leaving that $60 in the bank or using it to purchase something else when they'd really rather be playing the game they want to play.

I see CoD isn't going to die anytime soon like the Tony Hawk series and Guitar Hero series.

Looks different to me. It's in 2025.

Sure, it's the same engine. The unreal engine is used a lot too. The source engine as well.

The world it resides in is what differentiates one game from the other.

Yes but the difference is the Unreal Engine has been massively updated since 1998. The CoD engine was updated slightly between 1998 (or 1999 or whenever it was first made) and 2005, since then it has been pretty much the same.
