When Good Things Grow Old

I am a huge Call of Duty fan. Always have been, and I’m sure I always will be. However, I’ve found myself playing COD less and less. There’s something about it that isn’t catching my attention like it used to. I used to play it all the time, and I’m still even in a clan (not a very serious one, but a clan nonetheless). I feel as if there isn’t anything new in the games that has caught my attention, even though they’ve added plenty of new content in every installment of the COD franchise. It reminds me of what Halo used to be for me. I used to play Halo 2 all the time.┬áIt was my favorite game on Xbox and it will still be one of my favorite games of all time. However, as the new Halo games came out, I began to lose interest. It’s not that the games were getting much worse, but it was simply because of the fact that they didn’t have the same vibe that Halo 2 had. The same is happening for COD. I just don’t get the same gratifying experience when I play anymore. One reason might be because of the fact that the community is getting worse and worse after every new release. It’s nearly impossible to get into a lobby where I don’t have to immediately mute half of the players. I just don’t see the fun in that. Anyways, I just wonder if anyone else feels the same way I do. If you have any comments, just post them below!

  1. I completely agree……that was the main reason I stopped playing xbox live, the game I played (Call of Duty) stopped being interesting to me. This happened when Modern Warfare 2 came out, it was not fun for me at all so I stopped playing Xbox Live. Black Ops came out and I didn’t start playing it until after high school, over summer with you and Paul and Caleb online. It was like a little blast from the past, back to the good old days on World at War. Back then Call of Duty was fun! We played together with full teams of people we knew, I think that contributed to the fun of Call of Duty, playing it with friends. Now everyone if off to college or doesn’t game that much. As I got older the games I used to be hooked on with all the guys now seem boring because I don’t have anyone to play them with. It also seems Call of Duty has a completely different feel, a feel unlike Call of Duty 3, 4, and World at War. I think the games themselves are changing the gaming community, different style of Call of Duty brings in different styles of players. Thats just my opinion on this topic, it got me thinking of back in high school when we always played online. Brought back some great memories!

  2. Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Hopefully it’ll start getting better again, or maybe it’s just time for the next big thing to hit Xbox. We’ll have to see.

  3. My problem with COD is that the franchise is old and tired. Nothing actually new game play wise has been added. They smack in some new perks and new guns and call it a new game worth $60. I gave up on COD after World at War (Which was the last fantastic game in my opinion). That franchise is dead to me. I was a long time COD1 & 2 fan but I can’t get on board with the new formula of recycling content.

  4. Yeah, it does seem like they didn’t want to take too big of risks, so they played it safe and just added a few things here and there. I do like the things that they’ve added, but it hasn’t been enough of a change to keep me fully interested. I still enjoy playing it once in a while, but I don’t have the same urge to play it all the time like I used to. Hopefully they’ll change it for the better, but with the amount of players they have now, I doubt they’ll want to change it very much.
