idk why so many people hate COD. yes COD4 is AMAZING and its when COD is at its peak of perfection, but BLOPS and even MW2 are great games. it is the most popular game franchise for a reason!
BLOPS is amazing, MW2 is more meh because of no dedi servers tho.
but they are all great games.
ive never played MP WaW, so i have no opinion on it.
should i buy it for the lols?
do ppl still play it?

Disagreeing with you defaults someone as a 'cod hater' ?

Blops is as good a game as it sounds. More succinctly, it sucks arse. MW2 sucked too. They aren't great. Unless explicitly being used in the pejorative sense, eg. "meaning large or immense". Such as "great blop of crap". I opine as such without a fundamental hatred of the series, rather as person with functioning eyes & a distaste for hackneyed, run of the mill garbage.

McDonalds is the most popular restaurant chain in the world for a reason, too. You've made an absurd leap in logic, equating popularity with quality.

I digress. The lack of customization is a very, serious let-down. It treats us all..in the exact way console-titles are cookie-cutter renditions of the same item, without individuality. I can't mold the experience around my very unique rig? What if I don't like blops of bloom searing my retinas? What if I prefer a bit of aliased textures for an edge on outright fps? What if's for miles, ya'll. I'm looking forward to playing it, but I'm not excited in any justifiable definition of the word. And I had been. Really, really, really had been.

Sorry Crytek, the demo turned me off too much. Yeah, I realize dx10/11 are being patched in later, but come on, it's a demo. The object is to DEMO the game. If the user (which would be me) is not impressed, he/she shouldn't buy the game, as is the point of a demo. I really cannot fathom why they didn't include all the settings of the full game; I guess they just weren't ready yet and really wanted to get it out before launch. Plus, the MP didn't really do it for me and I have a hard time justifying 50/60 (whatever it is) on a single player that, even if I finish, will not last that long.

You know what irritates me (and maybe I'm being too technical/grammar nazi-ish here, but...):

This is not a console port. It does have a bad case of Consolitis, but it is not a port. Unlike games that were built for consoles, and then reworked for the PC, this was built all at once for all three natively. Sure, it's dumbed down; but the issues with ports are conflicts that result from switching architectures (poor memory usage/performance, bugginess, instability, etc) are not present here as far as I can tell. CryEngine 3 is built so that you build the game once, then compile it for 360/PS3/PC. Apparently an unfortunate drawback of this is that the PC version is constrained to the performance envelope of the 360 and PS3. Therefore:

It's not a port. It's just a failure.

I wouldn't say hater, as I would still recommend it to the majority of people who ask me for my opinion, but I personally will not play it. I wasn't one of those hypocritical fools who boycotted the game and then played it when it was released I do however like the storylines of the COD games, so I went to a friend's place, and have finished the single players of both BO and MW2.

It is one of the most popular game franchises as it appeals to most people. I personally think it went overkill with all the killstreaks etc... I keep go on for a bit longer, but nah.

Perhaps you were less affected by the loss of features like console, mods and the way the devs/publisher (I can't remember who) wanted us to play the game the way they intended us to.

As an aside, one of the reasons I have refrained from posting on this site anymore is due to the dismissive tone of some posters, and the lack of respect shown for others and the occasional blatant insults.

P.S. Your lack of punctuation makes me want to rage

see, you're one of those people that seem to think that because you have an awesome PC, any game that comes out should meet its standards.

when the real issue here is just that, the standard. your rig, like most rigs here, are not standard by any means. i dont care how much you paid for it or who you know that can get it cheap and just how easy it is to build a rig these days. not key factors in the majority market.

i dont think you guys realise how much of a minority in the gaming industry super high end computers with quad core CPUs and more than 1 graphics card are.

and what makes you think that when it comes out, you wont be able to tinker with the settings? or edit a config file? bad company 2 had limited graphical options compared to a config editor some forum member from somewhere released, allowing you to do a lot of key changes including changing directX mode and bloom on/off.

Did you read the front print before pressing enter?

This demo is not nessecarily the final product release or Quality of the software itself. THINK again. The release will be different than what we tried in the demo. I don't wanna lecture again.

yay! some1 that doesnt buy play COD just for the multi!
but MW2's campaign was so off track when shepherd kills roach. I WANT TO KILL MAKAROV NOT SHEPHERD!

yes i do miss mods and modtools, dont get me wrong. but the game is still fun by itself. btw acticrap is the publisher, Infinity Ward and Treyarch make the games.

did i blatantly insult you? sry bro im a troll! i cant help it

i dont get it. all of my sentences are punctuated, i just space out each one farther. :/
