    Just saw the trailer of Black Ops 2

    And it looks awesome, but I wanted more graphics. These look too outdated. What do you guys think?

    I'm pretty sure that's Black Ops 1. I mean it looks exactly like it. Must be some dude trolling.

    Well I'm sure Dough guy apologizes but I have no intention.

    The fact it spawns a sequel shows what is wrong with the gaming industry, even more so that it's obvious the game will be almost identical. Some famous words sum it up well: It's like the didn't even try.

    P.S. Modern FPS are the scourge of gaming happy

    One of my favorite "internet celebrities" puts it quite well. Doesn't matter if the video's old, it's still very relevant winking

    Anyway, I'm kinda with you Serious in that I don't like modern FPS gaming trends. Tone back the emotional investment in the video I posted by about 40% and you basically have my views on the matter actually silly
    It's not that I don't like the FPS genre, just that nothing interesting is coming out of it. Give me more TF2-ish stylized shooters and maybe I could get interested again, but as long as everything is about "realistic wartime settings" I'm not interested in the scene anymore :|

    Genre needs to realise that taking itself less seriously would be beneficial.

    Giant comedic weapons with crazy effects that are varied, zero attempt of realism, scripts that mock themselves.. Just needs to lighten up a bit in my opinion.

    Haven't paid attention personally, I am not a fan of the COD series. I think that some of the games have been quite good, but I find that they are constructed far to frequently for me to purchase them (plus I prefer the BF series, but to each their own). I suppose I almost look at them like sports games. I bought a EA Tiger Woods game probably back in 2006 or so, and I have not purchased one since, because I find that they are too similar to one another for me to purchase every years copy.

    As I told my friend, doing this is better then covering the last popular war. COD: Emancipation Front is worse then this.

    Borderlands seems to be what you are asking for, Reaper and Serious.

    I played borderlands and loved it. It's an awesome game to be fair and looking forward to number 2. (My first post was speaking about the popular FPS games really, though you can tell)

    But I suppose that's a good example for what I think is a better approach.. I just think sticking to the real in terms of guns and inspiration for storyline just isn't imaginative or interesting enough.

    RAGE is good but way too short and there should have been a bigger focus on the buggies. (That thankful moment when you acatch yourself after accidently hitting n instead of b for bigger).

    I have always been a fan of the sci-fi FPS because of it's license to depart from convention. I have had a much more memorable time playing Resistance, Killzone, and Bioshock because of that, despite their very serious stories.

    I love killzone. Except for the cop out final battle in 3. That was just boring. And it makes no sense.
    Spoiler:
    How did 2 fighters take out an entire ship? And not just a ship, a super ship (I also have the book for number 3). How did they outrun the explosion when nothing else did? And how the hell do they plan on getting back to ISA space? They dont have warp capabilities and all the warp capable ships just got obliterated. And where did all the helgan ships come from? That one I have an answer from, the helgans have a second planet hidden somewhere. thats where the 4th game will be placed I reckon.

    Yeah, I really enjoyed Resistance 1, but again it fell to the trap of becoming more like the realistic shooters, and took the fun out of the weapons in resistance 2.. another shooter which lost it's way :|

    MW3 was the last COD I will ever buy the trailer proves my point. Playing modern FPS games is like paying for the same game 3 times in a row.

    Ew, get away from me you filthy casual. Jokes aside, I never bought MW3 so maybe my year long break from cod will rejuvenate my love for it.

    I've hated COD ever since MW2, as it was the same as MW1... It's rather ironic that MW concept was created to breath new life into the series, then it's subsequent sequels just brought the monotony back.

    Hands down the funnest online I had with COD was the COD3 online, it was way simpler than newer COD online but was so awesome.

    MW2 was the game that brought in all the squeaky 12 year olds that subsequently ruined the community. COD games are in theory good but the community always ruins them.

    @Wade Wilson you are right that is what killed COD for me those annoying COD 12 year olds. Thank God for the mute button.

    "The use of fun as an adjective meaning ‘enjoyable,’ as in we had a fun evening, is now established in informal use, although not accepted in standard English. The comparative and superlative forms funner and funnest, formed as if fun were a standard adjective, should only be used in very informal contexts, typically speech."

    From the oxford dictionary so it is a word, but just like don't it is an informal form of the word.

    The Mechs have me a bit interested, as well as some of the ideas going with it. But it's COD, I'm pretty sure we all don't need to be Mon Cal, wearing a white outfit and have the title of Admiral to see through this. The last Call of Duty I bought was COD2, and COD 1 was beyond worth it. But after those two the game series just became terrible in my opinion. It's kind of like a sinking ship that they pulled out of the water and cleaned. I don't care if you polished it and everything, you're just going to hit another ice burg again.
