There's a YouTube video of a guy doing a whole mission in Call of Duty: Black Ops without shooting one single shot that was made as a statement that games are simple and dumb now and that you can't die in the game because it wants to keep you going and that consoles are to blame, Half-Life 2, Old School Gamer, blah blah blah. These PC elitists complain about Call of Duty, about how it's ruining gaming or whatever, I don't get it. The fact is that CoD is aimed at kids and dads who's wives only lets them play games for 30 minutes twice a week and maybe don't want to restart a level 42 times or spend 152 hours crafting potions. It's not aimed at hardcore gamers, and I don't think it ever pretended to be. It's going to be more popular because it's being dumb down to the lowest denominator therefore will sell more. It's making the gaming industry a lot of money, which in turn is helping fund the other games we all enjoy, because there are a lot of hardcore games out there to enjoy. Just stop the hate, who cares if CoD exists. It seems dumber to still play it and hate on it instead of just picking another game to play and enjoy.
