Call of Duty Series

Yea I have always considered that game series a Fad game, and that's why I never bought a single one since I like having a game which I could play even when other people hate it or don't have it. Also I like games that don't have a complete conversion in the whole entier gameplay when you go from singleplayer to multiplayer, COD is the biggest offender of this, I always liked when games make the two modes similar because then you don't have two completly different games and you could train using singleplayer or play singlelayer when no one else plays it and now feel like your issing out on something.
If you are running on a PC make sure to pick a server that has a relatively low ping. The best bet is 90 and below with 120 being about ok. Never go past 200 ping or you will have the worst lag.

Haha I've actualy played games where I have had uncountable ping, the game is international so there is servers all around the world and the ping tracker only goes up to 2500 so I don't know the exact ping I had, it sometimes got annoying because I swear in some servers I had 9000 ping because my messages took about a minute to display to everyone else.

I hate when a game only focuses on multiplayer and the singleplayer really sucks or doesn't make any sense. This seemed to be the case on Black Ops

I really thought the campaign of Black Ops really good, just a little "no-sense". I was playing just for kill people, but then i had to kill steiner, dragovich and kravchenko. and the last scene is really cool.


Any mistake in my english, please tell me.

fights before the real boss fight

I don't get why so many people find this as a bad thing, I always found enimies before a boss is like a warm up for me so that I'l be ready when the real boss comes, like I remember they did just that in a game called Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow where they had the miniature version of the boss first that had the same attacks, but they were weaker and he was alot smaller, then once you kill him they have the full-sized, full power boss which I really think would've been hard if I didn't already know the range of attacks he could use.

I agree with you. It's just that it was painfully short. If Treyarch spent more time developing the story and lengthening the campaign it could have been a lot better. A stealth mission or two would have been nice. It just seemed rushed so they could develop the multiplayer.

Games with no auto save and when you die you loose like 30 minutes of gameplay becuase you forgot to save.

Cutscenes that can't be skipped > *thinks of Assassin's Creed*

And also throngs of weak enemies that don't really hurt you and that you can OHKO, only there are so many of them it slows your game down and makes it repetitive and boring.

Speaking of bosses, I hate those games that have the easiest boss in the world but have some of the hardest enemies.
And Since everyone is mentioning how I said Black Ops had a bad campaign, I just want to clear up that I didn't like the story and I didn't like how short the story was. I think the Call Of Duty series doesn't spend enough time on singleplayer aspects. I did like that they made Special Ops back in MW2 I also liked that COD3 actually had a fun, decent storyline although it had bad graphics.
Nowadays it seems like the only people that like COD is people that only have played MW2 and black ops. I just want to say that I was almost always a fan except I didn't play COD1 and 2.

Oh yeah I was just thinking I hate the video games that are made from a movie because they always have the worst graphics and with the Pirates series they threw random cutscenes and gameplay that didn't relate to the original movie.
Also speaking of pirates I hate games that have the weirdest or worst controls ever.

A) Graphics have no weight whatsoever in determining the quality of a game

B) Go play the Toy Story 3 video game's Toybox mode then try to say that wasn't excellent game design. Other than that you're pretty much right. Just don't make blanket statements like that, because upon further thought Kung Fu Panda wasn't a half-bad game either.

I hate those games which are like:
What's that? You beat the level? Yes, but you didn't find the secret, so you can't progress anyway >

What's the point in having the secret there if you have to find it anyway?

And for multiplayer games, having the ability to give real game money for level ups/better abilities. That's just buying power.

Also what I can only explain by 'What Mass Effect 3 Did.' They had a DLC that was ready before the game came out, but you had to pay extra money to get it. What also makes me mad about that is how plot crucial that DLC was. Bioware ticked me off about that.

I hate short storylines and unchallenging campaigns. All of the CoD campaigns are too easy to beat, even on Veteran.

I also don't like unequal gun power distribution in multiplayer games. Theres always that 1 (Famas: Black Ops) or 3 or more (ACR, PP90M1, MP7, etc...)

And Since everyone is mentioning how I said Black Ops had a bad campaign, I just want to clear up that I didn't like the story and I didn't like how short the story was. I think the Call Of Duty series doesn't spend enough time on singleplayer aspects. I did like that they made Special Ops back in MW2 I also liked that COD3 actually had a fun, decent storyline although it had bad graphics.

I like the campaign but I agree with the shortness, after WaW the campaigns got stupid short, like three or four hours and barely 200 gamerscore of achievement. Felt like a waste of time.

I know its completely necessary but I dont like when you download a pc game an you have to wait three hours for all the dumb updates to load. Really annoys me. I want to play the game already.
