    I appreciate how MW3 did not alter or re invite new controls, it was just an extended MW2. If I have to learn a new stupid set of controls because some over paid reprobate figured it would compensate for something else in the game - BF3 does plenty of that for MW3 and itself.
    Im playing it right now, and I'm pretty bored half way through the campaign but I always thought the campaign sucked the multilayer is good though.

    That's blizzard who made the game though really people just want addicting games I suppose.

    The campaign does suck, it annoys me to tears but I wait for the movie clips in between. I want the end to come so that's my only motivation, the end result.
    I hardly play it actually. It's like i have to derail my mind to engage it on a practical level. Nope.

    I remember playing COD when it first came out, for some reason they had more strategy back then with moderate (decent) story, and it never bothered me. & MOH, the days back on the first Play Station, it never bothered me. Now they're rushing out to meet the demand because the games are expected, so they can through whatever crap they want onto a CD and people will pay a ridiculous price for it, plus membership for online play or some stupid stuff. It went from cheap and awesome to over priced and redundant. It's how it always goes.

    I remember MOH being epic for it's time and playing allied assault for the first time really reminded of saving private ryan. After that game there was nothing really special about these games for me. I was always a fan of rainbow six though.

    Activision-Blizzard is one company now. And most of the biggest selling games, especially for the past several years, have had a strong multiplayer component. Mario Kart, Pokemon, Farmville, WoW, CoD, etc... all have a well made multiplayer component.

    ya but activision didn't actually make the game blizzard did. Activision joined blizzard years after WOW was made.

    Doesn't matter much because

    A) WoW has had several expansions since the merger and these have collectively changed the nature of the game.

    B) WoW is more of a service than a product, so what a customer receives month to month is more telling than the initial product.

    C) The biggest selling Call of Duty games happened after the merger. Essentially the (post-merger) company that has made WoW what it is today is the same company that has made WoW what it is today. In fact CoD will sometimes be made by different developers. The only constant is the publisher: Activision-Blizzard.

    Uhg, now I feel dirty because I don't even want to defend Activision-Blizzard. I don't always agree with how they do things, but they do know what sells, and that is why they have the two biggest franchises right now.

    I don't even think activision does a whole lot for call of duty anyways, since it's developed by Infinity ward and tryarch. Wow is a product and a service at the same time they make money on expansions and game sells as well as month to month fees. I honestly don't think the guys at activision before the merge could come close to making a game like wow without the blizzard developers most activision games were mediocre.
