After coming home I had grown to love the Franchise and have purchased every game and all the DLC for each title until Ghosts. I have purchased the first DLC for Ghosts and think this will be both my last in the Franchise and I will not be buying any more DLC. I am not going to dog the game nor am I going to defend my opinion from the masses, but I have about had it with this game.
I will admit some of it has to do with the game mechanics themselves, but much of it is the Community and what FPS has become. I remember playing CoD back in the day and camping happened but was more obsolete, K/D did not mean shit and stats were there but rarely worried about. Now stats are the primary priority within CoD. Kids want to always 1v1 after being out gunned. Sniping and actually looking through the scope is considered hardscoping. It's just insane seeing the new generation of kids on CoD and how they view it as a whole.
I was also unimpressed with the maps that came with Ghosts, their first DLC was to make or break them as a game. The DLC maps are the smaller maps in which we should of had when the game started. This dilemma cannot be misunderstood though. The community wants many things and sadly they cannot please everyone. I also am unimpressed having to pay for a map from a previous installment in the Franchise. I love the old nostalgic maps, but I these should be offered for free, not included in a map pack.
Now do not get me wrong on these opinions stated. I still play a little CoD here and there. I just feel as a gamer I have became someone who forgot their roots and only played one game. I may never completely leave the scene, nor will I ever stop supporting it. I just feel I will not dedicate all my time to the Franchise. If I do buy another DLC they better bring something amazing to impress me and catch my eye, that also goes without question for the next game.
I miss the old CoD feel any maybe it is still there and I am just becoming an old dog who misses the "simpler" games. Maybe its the fact I feel its getting stale so arcade and racing games are sounding better everyday. Whatever it is I cannot deny it.
I will always still promote everyone even if its CoD related because my personal opinions are not what I need to use when promoting others. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions in what they like and I promote gamers of all kinds. So don't fear about that! Hell in fact send me more clips, montages, games and such to promote in the hopes you can rekindle the love I had for the game. Thanks for your time guys and I hope you enjoyed reading about my thoughts.
