It is the most popular but is not nearly as innovative as some try to claim. I am not talking about you but some act like CoD invented gaming.
I'm not saying it's innovative. IMO, it hasn't been since its WWII days. I'm just saying it has the biggest following (and thus is the big cash chow) and that means a lot of titles that aren't CoD see it and decide to copy it to cash in on its situation.
I know MOH has done it before, but COD has not. My main issue with COD was camping in order to gain kill streaks. The point based system should make players look into the tactical side as well. Towards the end of BF3 I just felt like I was running for miles and not shooting anyone. I remember playing games for 30 minutes and only seeing 5 people.
War fighter looks exactly like BF, except for smaller maps. It's ran on the same Frostbite engine. You can tell that War fighter is just a BS filler to hold players over until the next BF.
Just like COD is being developed on the same engine from 2006? Its the same engine. That is where similarities stop between MoH and BF. Hell, DICE had nothing to do with MOH War fighter.
Honestly, if I get a Fps this year it will be halo 4. Bo2 looks good, but I am tired of call of duty....
Stoked for Halo 4. Between all the multiplayer footage (and changes) and Forward Unto Dawn, they are building up HUGE expectations.
Never been a big Halo fan but it looks more promising than any other MP shooter coming out.
I am excited for Far Cry 3.
Halo 4 for me I think will be better than both.
Never played far cry... What are they like?
Far Cry has been a really good series. Far Cry was the first game I bought for my XBOX 360 in I think March of 2006. The first one is a lot different than Far Cry 2. Far Cry 2 really broke ground with the open world setting in the FPS genre. Here is just a little bit of game play from Far Cry 3. This was from May, so it isn't fully polished obviously.
The newest gameplay of Far Cry 3. Mission 1 maybe?
Enjoy, and thanks for watching!
Halo 4 could be the sleeper game this year. 5 years ago no one would have ever called Halo a "sleeper" game, but the series got dull and 343 looks to have reinvigorated it. I'll wait to see if the game is actually good from a competitive standpoint (weapon balance, sensible maps, less features that cater to scrubs like in Reach), but there's no doubt it's very exciting.
Just trying to get my orange man back
EDIT: And there he is!

Video of Boston game play in ACIII. This was posted on October 20th, so sorry if you all have already seen it. I hadn't.
Get an early look at what we can expect from Assassin's Creed 3 when it releases later this month in this preview commentated by creative director Alex Hutchinson.
Set in Colonial America, the Assassin-Templar war has become involved in the American Revolution. As series' protagonist Desmond Miles, the player controls a young half-English, half-Native American man named Connor Kenway, drawn into the fight against tyranny when his home is attacked by Colonial British soldiers. Over the course of the game, Kenway will encounter historical figures including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Lee, Israel Putnam, Paul Revere, General Lafayette, John Pitcairn, William Prescott, King George III, Samuel Adams and Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben. The story will span 30 years of Connor's life, from 1753 to 1783. Boston and New York will be cities that can be explored, as well as the American Colonial Frontier, spanning forest, cliffs, rivers, Connor's Mohawk village, and the settlements of Lexington, Concord and Charlestown. It will be open for the player to take part in hunting activities, and approximately one third of the story will take place in the Frontier. The entire Eastern seaboard will also be explorable via Connor captaining a ship.
The main portion of Assassin's Creed III will be set before, during and after the American Revolution from 1753 to 1783, featuring a new protagonist: half-English and half-Native American, Connor Kenway, birth name Ratonhnhaké:ton (pronounced "Ra-doon-ha-gay-doon"). In addition to the historical period, the game will also feature the "present day" setting, where series' protagonist Desmond Miles must endeavour to prevent the 2012 apocalypse, as his story will develop and then reach a conclusion. Players will also experience more Desmond than in any previous titles. The game features a new engine, Anvil Next, built from the ground up, the engine is said to utilise full capability of current generation systems to deliver a "next-gen Assassin's Creed experience

I am loving Forza Horizon. I also can not wait for Assassins Creed 3 next week.
Warfighter is still getting ripped to shreds.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter review: Podium finish?
I have a hard time believing it is as.bad as the reviews indicate. I am sure it is nothing special but nowhere near this bad.
Probably not, but not good enough for me to purchase. Would have gotten it with some solid reviews.
I am not getting it either.
But if it was a CoD game they would be praising the same things they are complaining about.
The thing I hate about COD is not really the games but the fans. I would say half the people I know that own a console only play COD and nothing else. I just do not get it. I am going to get Black Ops 2 mainly because I love zombie mode but I am much more looking forward to Assassins Creed 3 and Halo 4. I had some of my friends ask me about some games about a year ago and I told them to try Red Dead Redemption and they did and said it was ok but COD was way better. I like the games ok but the fans get on my nerves.
Could not agree more and I think that is what makes me hate CoD so much.
It would be like someone watching the Godfather and then afterwards saying that Transformers was.better.
I've definitely played my share of COD over the years and it could be entertaining, but I think the precedent they've set is an insult to the gaming community. With as much money as they make on this game, they should put a lot more back into the franchise instead of each iteration being a glorified map pack.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
They used to. Back in the WWII FPS days and up until CoD4 they weren't just some rehashed-trash developer. While Medal of Honor lead the charge and BF1942 brought the MP, the set pieces and cinematic elements CoD brought to the party were unprecedented. It was awesome really. I still remember when the first demo for the original CoD came out. I must have played through it at least 50 times. The good ol' days, I must say.
I didn't mean to imply that they never invested in their own product, but that is what it has become.
