A Mature Discussion of Call of Duty

Let's have an actual discussion about this series. Not purely hating on everything about (it DOES have merits) and not praising the hell out of it. Just an actual discussion or debate about these games.

I recently posted to my facebook page that Call of Duty 4 is actually one of the greatest FPS games ever, and is on par with Halo 1 and 2 and even Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. Hell, I even enjoyed Modern Warfare 2 to a degree, and Black Ops was pretty awesome. I thought MW3, BLOPS II, were terrible and I hated World at War most of all.

When it comes down to it, CoD is a semi realistic FPS that is arcady and fun to play with friends. That's all it is. It's not a long drawn out game with a deep storyline. It's not trying to be. It is what it is, and gamers need to accept it for an arcade like game mean to be enjoyed in very short bursts among friends. Yes, it's responsible for the now giant "dudebro market" but is that really the game's fault?

I find CoD to be relaxing. It is rather mindless, and it is easy to piss people off and hear their idiotic responses.

Much like Medal of Honor I always preferred Call of Duty in WWII, I dunno, I just enjoyed it more(mind you I still thought Black Ops was a great game, and still consider MW1 to be the best in the series)

It's a great game to satisfy my occasional need to just mindlessly run around and shoot and stab dudes. But it's not the new Holy Grail of gaming like many people make it out to be, and it is somewhat annoying how other shooters or games that have guns as your main weapon are trying to emulate it. It's like when kids at school see the popular guy so they all try to dress like him and take on his mannerisms. If I wanted to play Call of Duty, I would be playing Call of Duty. Don't change yourself, other shooter franchises.

I understand the internet's particular dislike of the series, but what needs to be understood is that:
1. The game's community is what gives it its bad reputation among us "non-casual" gamers. At least that's what I believe to be why it is so absolutely despised on the internet.
2. It's a leave your brain at the door kind of game. If you mute everyone in your multiplayer lobby and don't over-analyze how realistic the game is, it's a pretty fun series to just pick up and play (minus ALL post CoD4 Infinity Ward games which I think are horribly designed). I don't think it was ever meant to be so harshly criticized in that manner. How realistic can you make a game about war anyway?

The Black Ops multiplayer in my opinion is extremely well put together, and is by far my favorite in the franchise. You've just got to ignore the fanbase and have fun.

So much this.

I also get so tired of criticism among the community. Don't get me wrong there's always those one or two guys in the lobby with a "YOLO" clan tag acting like ****ing morons but hey that's what they invented the mute button for. All in all (over PSN at least) the community isn't really bad at all, there is actually a good bit of mature people who play; it's just getting past those one or two squeakers in the lobby.

I hardly ever play with my mic on, anymore.
But Hudson nailed it. Yes, it is a brainless shooter that requires hardly any strategy. That's not neccessarily a bad thing, sometimes it's fun to just run and gun without thinking about it. There's other shooters on the market that do require strategy.

I think the problem is just in how other shooter franchises are trying to imitate it, even the ones that pre-date it.

The community is one of the most obnoxious community of whiny crybabies I know, though. They're always just have to have something to complain about and call cheap.
