    Good post. Some reasonable points there.

    I don't think it's really for us to decide what does and doesn't constitute good taste. I for one am happy that people that enjoy playing games purchased games and played them. I don't even think it's an especially bad game.

    I still find COD games quite enjoyable, in much the same way I'd enjoy a rollercoaster - you know before you start how it's all going to go, and you've been on rollercoasters before so it's not like there'll be some massive surprises. But if you enjoy rollercoasters, it's always nice to try out another :)

    Perhaps ecosse was talking about this :

    The chart also showed a strong showing for television series Mrs Brown's Boys.
    How a show as shit as the fake Andy Millman creation in Extras can be such a hit is a complete mystery to me.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I don't een know what that is, of course I was referring to CoD!

    I don't remember seeing charts like this comparing different entertainment formats like this, was interesting to see how gaming compares with other Chav purchases from Asda and Tesco.

    There's far better games than COD.

    Like Sniper Elite V2 where you can actually fucking kill bloody Hitler!

    The thing is, I don't consider the Call of Duty games to be on a par with the so-called TV/Movie/Pop equivalents. Whether you're a fan or not, CoD titles have may more sophistication and nuance to them.

    I don't see what's so shit about COD the game, tbh. Maybe Activision is shit or their practices are, but COD itself is a good game.

    I just don't understand how those who buy every iteration aren't absolutely bored of it by now.

    They're not shit, just mor life fifa and they rape sales from genuinely brilliant games. It's been like this since the the dawn of gaming.

    It is odd how it keeps going and going but the problem with COD is that you can take a break from it and come back after a while and love it all over again. COD is a really good series and it's gameplay is fun and easy to pick up (single player or multiplayer). I haven't bought the last 2 but still play the older ones every few months. Threw on MW2 and BLOPs last week after a long break and had a blast.

    As much as people like to hate on the series the reason Activision have been able to milk it until it bleeds the way they have is that they are bloody good games.

    Someone's an active subscriber of the No Fun Club, it seems. Chill, COD's good for a bit of fun every now and then, nothing more and nothing less.

    I really like COD - play alot on my VITA.

    However my favourite game of all time is Journey.

    So your generalisation is frankly stupid.

    I'm just proving that people who enjoy CoD have as much right to their opinion as you do. You look down on their opinion as if you're somehow better than them, whereas it's just as easy to point at your taste and say "that's shit, how could you possibly like it?"

    Only it seems if I do that it's off topic somehow and I should know better? Tad hypocritical of you.

    Say what you like about Hitler, but he did kill Hitler.

    And his favourite game was an early real life prototype of Journey.

    The irony being that you seem as thick as utter pigshit so, logically, the polar opposite of what you like should actually be amazing.

    You are an idiot therefore CoD is great.
