CoDww2

CoD:WWII PC beta was this weekend on Steam. I was excited for this beta because of the lack of FPS options out there and this was an opportunity for me to look at how CoD has evolved over the years since the last one I played, which was Modern Warfare 2. Yeah, it’s been a long time and though I liked MW2 OK enough, it didn’t keep my interests. The entire iw.NET thing was a disaster on PC with the constant disconnects, freezes, and lag issues brought on by peer-to-peer hosting.

Yes, I am talking about the leading FPS game for, at least, five years running, Call of Duty. Let me just say up front that I played all the CoD titles up to Modern Warfare 2 and I loved them all, though quickly became bored of MW2. I did not play CoD3 as it was console only and for those of you that may not know, I am a PC player. I encourage all gamers to play whatever game they find to be fun. I don’t care if you play on console or PC. I think it is great that someone plays other game types than FPS.  This article is not to bash CoD, but to enforce what I was saying in my previous article about CoD vs Battlefield.

Yes, it is time once again to ponder the same question as two years ago. That question being, “Will Battlefield beat out CoD and take the #1 spot in the universe?” In other words, will it break records and day one sales across the board? It is a very good question that many people ponder and fan-boys flame war about. This question is probably #2 and right next to the question “Which is better, Xbox or PlayStation?”

Well, I, CptainCrunch, am here to answer that question for you. That answer is…… no.

Now before all the rage starts and hate mail/tweets comes in, hear me out on this. It is not that Call of Duty is so great and appealing to everyone that it just cannot be beat and will be the remaining juggernaut for all times. It is also not because Battlefield is such a terrible game and the only thing it has going for it is pretty lighting from the Frostbite engine. No, the reason is much more simple. Activision won the marketing war against EA a few years ago. You see, EA has had some rough years and some decisions it made on its part probably did not help the situation. You also had DICE re-defining itself as not just a Battlefield making developer, but  a REAL game developer. So we had Battlefield 2 and 2142 and then it went quiet for Battlefield. While 2142 was starting to get old and stale for a game, Infinity Ward announces CoD:4 Modern Warfare. It was truly one of the best FPS games made to date. It is probably my #2 favorite of all time. No, BF3 is not my #1 ( gasp ). I would have to say 2142 holds that spot. (more…)
