It's pretty common sense. World at War, MW1, MW2, Black Ops. Same exact engine, not even "the next level up" like Dice did from Bad Company 1 to Bad Company 2. Pretty much all with a decent sense of what a quality PC shooter is would agree on this POV that the last 3-4 CODs have been identical. How else do they release such marvelous identical "sequels" year after year? Reminds me of the Saw movie series...

And, care to share what other posts "like that" you're referring to? I've never at all said it's "easy to do," though I can see why some of my other posts may lead you to feel that I'm saying I can do better. Ftr, I can't, and never claimed I can. Grabbing most of the net code from a previous COD is one thing. ADDING the extra features I mentioned in my last post is a totally separate project which is, no doubt, a task.

Isn't it weird when it comes to games from Valve and Blizzard everyone keeps on saying how the graphics doesn't matter and it's all about the gameplay, but COD get's bashed for it's graphics(which is miles ahead of Blizz and Valve)

Most PC gamers are fickle and hypocritical. I mean, when you've been on these forums a while, you tend to notice certain folks who contradict themselves numerous times. That's when you learn who actually has a valid point and who just wants to be listened to.

I don't find COD's graphics to be all that much better than Source engine games. No doubt, COD has better, but not out of this world. I do get what you mean though. To me, if the graphics are at least as good as any Source game, they're great; better than most current console games. Vindictus (Source MMO) has a very nice appearance to it and the only RPGs I can tolerate are live-action battles such as in Vindictus. Valve and the community have no doubt squeezed every drop out of the giant lemon that is the Source engine and I think it can still do more. Take a minute to think about what Valve must be up to for their next engine, hopefully for HL3/the next CS. Gotta love the physics in Source games as well, they're still quite nice and fluid for Havok's/Source's age.

I don't know many people that bash CoD because of the graphics. The point of the people defending Valve and Blizzard games is that even though the games many not push the most polygons, they have solid gameplay and their own artistic style. Most people would argue that is more important than "better graphics", as the best looking game in the world isn't fun to play if the gameplay is bad.

Personally I prefer the source engine in L4D 1&2 to the COD games. To me the COD characters and environments appear to be made of plastic. Whereas the Source engine appears more life like, skin etc.

Agreed! But that was not what engines they were comparing.
