"ACTUAL GAMERS such as myself would never hold ourselves at the same level as those immature CoD fanboys. Instead we snobbishly hold ourselves at a higher level of gaming. How dare they enjoy a game I dislike. I understood the ending of Bioshock, so I know what I'm talking about, okay? They should all spend days contemplating the story of a game, and watching hour long cutscenes. Shooting left and right is so crude, so barbaric... what is this, the 90's?! First you need a little character development, and then you can shoot left and right. That's what ACTUAL GAMERS do."

Well that sarcasm is your opinion and technically i have to accept it, but cod is a dying franchise that repeats itself every year. Playing it doesn't make anyone less of a gamer, but it most certainly won't motivate companys to create better games.

Now I won't say CoD is my favorite game, but it is not a "dying franchise". That isn't opinion, that's fact. Call of Duty Black Ops 2 made $1 billion dollars in 2 weeks. It breaks sales records every game that comes out.  That is a franchise that gets bigger. I understand CoD has a reputation for being repetitive, but can you really blame them? If they make tons of money with a certain type of game, change a little, and then make MORE money off the same game, what incentive do they have to risk changing adding new mechanics, or "rocking the boat" so to speak?

Didn't say cod was your favorite game. Iv'e asked people why they still buy it, the only response i ever get is a god damn shrug. It is desired because it's simple, its a safe game to buy, nothing is changed because change is messy, but it can be beautiful. At one point cod was good, but the second they started this stupid ass dlc business is where they went wrong. I was really looking forward to the new cod: ghost (I mean new game engine right?) until i saw that they didn't change a damn thing, just more 			*******		 explosions, dogs, and smoke effects. I  am perfectly ok with games like battlefield or crysis, they don't 			****		 out a half a game every year and ask for more money half way through to the next game.

You did not say it was, I just wanted to clarify that I am not some die hard fanboy, but just a realist. This is necessary to avoid an onslaught of red thumbs.
I have some bad news for you though, CoD isn't exclusively the only title to crank out genres like crazy. Battlefield for example has been cranking out games since the turn of the century, it's just not as easily recognized for it as CoD is. My point is that most of the big name series (CoD, Gears, Halo, Battlefield, AC) are guilty of cranking out games year after year.

I agree that "asking for more money halfway through the year" is a dirty sales move, but the reality is that all games do it. It is called DLC, and every game now has some form of it. Whether it be skins, avatars, extra missions, maps, camos, etc., CoD again is not alone in this. Again I would say they are at least giving players their money worth in playability with their DLC, as compared to other games.

To say that CoD hasn't ever changed is unfair too. They do add things, but people on the internet don't like to take notice. They've added things like: Higher quallity voice acting, real music, multiple endings, Zombies, Spec Ops, mechanics to combat camping and "noobtubing". To judge Ghosts at this point seems wrong, from what I understand, there really isn't much to go on about it. I've heard rumors though that they are adding a cover mechanic

Well to be perfectly honest most games that "Hardcore Gamers" play are really in-depth, like a well written novel, With a rendered graphics display to make it like an immersive movie.

It's like saying that children who read picture novels are advid readers, sure they like the pretty pictures and the quickly given moral ending, BUT they wouldn't be able to understand a well written novel.


Please forgive me if this makes little sense I'm tired as hell.
User avatar #33 to #30 - Yojimbo (05/22/2013) [-]
The whole idea of these different tiers of gaming is so stupid though. If someone enjoys a game they play, they are a gamer. Simple as that. And there is hardly anything dumb about people who play CoD, because they are getting their money's worth.

Take Bioshock Infinite for example. Great game, fantastic story, a little repetitive, but it weaves a great tale.
Now take CoD. Hardly a fantastic story, but to discount it's campaign as crap is unfair. still that aside, it has an addictive multiplayer that honestly is the only reason people buy it. This game also costs $60. How many times will you play Bioshock Infinite? 3 maybe 4 tops? And then what? People who buy CoD spend weeks on the multiplayer. And it's something you can jump into at anytime, a quick match.

Is one really superior to the other?

I just feel like if you like games, you're a gamer.

Just like how if you like art, you're an...art... lover?

Just because you prefer high school level pieces of art and don't really care for Da Vinci and DalĂ­ doesn't make you a bad art lover does it?

Oh it does? **** my argument then...
User avatar #8 to #7 - AuroranRage (05/22/2013) [-]
What you're describing is taste, however the problem with video games are that they're an interactive art medium, hence there are obviously gonna be tiers of how well a certain person can play the piece of entertainment which opens people up to ridicule, especially from people who put more time and effort into engaging with the medium.

You don't see people saying "Yeah! I'm the best at appreciating art! Suck my dick!" or after watching an episode of How I met your mother, someone comes in and screams "You suck at watching this! I ****** your mom!"

I'm okay with people calling themselves gamers because I don't really care what they call themselves. I play games almost every day, hell, I plan to make a living out of making games, I personally don't run around calling myself that because I'm not into the whole "I'm this, you're that!" thing because at the end of the day people like what they like, and you shouldn't give a **** what that is.

On top of that (more in relation to the content, as opposed to your comment) does a person have to look or act a certain way to enjoy something avidly, just because someone's a professional footballer, an actor or a comedian doesn't suddenly make them "Not a gamer"

ANYONE that enjoys games in any way, shape or form can call themselves a gamer.

On top of that people freaking out about how **** CoD is.

I'll clarify, the series has been going downhill a bit in my opinion probably because of publishers pushing for a new release every year, and the fact that the game (again, in my opinion) handles, and controls so well that I think they're afraid to take away or add too much of their winning formula, think about it, it sells millions of copies every single year, it shifts millions of pre-orders by just being "Call of Duty - XXXXX" mostly because people expect it to be very similar to what they're used to. Sure it might not be super innovative and use real time physics the way Crytek are working on, Sure it's not got huge crowds to maneuver through the way Hitman and Assassins Creed do, but it's easy to pick up and play for 5-10 minutes at a time for people about to leave for work, or for people that just want to jump in and shoot some **** before they have to meet with a partner or friend, it's why games like Angry Birds are so popular too, it's something you don't really need to commit to and you can still have a ton of fun doing.

TLR AuroranRage is a bit of a pleb and believes people shouldn't be called gamers because of their skill level.
User avatar #41 to #17 - AuroranRage (05/23/2013) [-]
What? I didn't say once in my comment that people shouldn't be called gamers because of their skill level.

What I was saying was that the PROBLEM with being an interactive art medium is from the people who sit at the top rung of the skill ladder looking down on everyone else and generally being an insufferable prick. Not saying all gamers are like this, but they're certainly in the majority
User avatar #42 to #41 - AuroranRage (05/23/2013) [-]
And thus they are the ones who deem others not being worthy of being called a gamer, bringing amonisity to casuals, noobs etc. not myself (hence the comment I originally replied to)

No that's EA i believe, in Medal of honor they were "sponsored" by a lot of firearms, firearms accessories and knife companys to get there brand name in game, but this year instead there going to use the same guns but just say no to giving royalties to the company that make those products, its basically just EA being greedy again.

most people whoplay those types of games do so religiously. 'Gamers' tend toplay a lot more than one genre, and it takes a larger portion of their free time.

I keep seeing here and there the opportunity to play call of duty with a band (I guess it's more popular with rock/metal bands?)

I test people whenever they ask me to play games with them (especially CoD or Halo, just because reasons) by saying I don't like FPS, and if they suggest a non FPS game I'm fine with them, if they ask what FPS is I just never talk to them again.

I don't have a lot of friends anymore.

People are hating hard. I'm personally waiting for E3 for me to make a choice. I was slightly underwhelmed but I'm optimistic. Today I saw progress for the Xbox brand: Microsoft promised a staggering amount of servers, 8 new IPs soon after launch, a Halo TV series by Steven Spielberg, a refined and actually cool (and included) Kinect, an improved controller, an alliance with EA and NFL, impressive specs/functionality, and a blu ray player. That's progress.

Well Thats understandable just as call of duty is, but i mean its not super groundbreaking is it? Just seems kind of lack-luster next to the unveiling of a brand new console is all. Personally I don't enjoy racing games usually or any call of duty's past cod4. I just felt like they didnt have much to show on the side of games, but then again i guess its just their waiting to show of new games as well as the presentation was only an hour so its hard to pack in new things because you will have to explain more things and set things up. I just wonder the date of release and price.
User avatar #32 to #24 - thatscrewedupkid (05/22/2013) [-]
its gonna take a bit for the game developers to explore the capabilities, play Cod2 and it looks like **** , then look at skyrim
