The excitement behind the “Call of Duty’s” latest line in the hit series was unbelievable, just like every new launch the promise of a new lease of life in the series is always so highly promised, however such a rarity.
It seemed more clear than ever that in these past few months that the Call of duty gamer is becoming more and more bored and starting to leave this once so dominant game. But what is causing the downfall in this series and what can be done?
Quite simply the business is so big that they are scared to fail, gone are the days where it could afford to try out a new class system or even a totally different type of game play; instead it stays very safe by rolling out the same game as previous one just with different maps or less glitchy game play. For the past 2/3 updates to the series we have seen no evidence of new exiting updates to revolutionize the game play and totally shake up what the level first person shooters have to compete with. But what can the user do to send out a message to the call of duty series, well don’t buy it!
At this time many view the call of duty series at its weakest and there is no other game looking to take it of the top spot then the latest installment of the battlefield series. The new game coming in Autumn 2011 is set to take down the call of duty franchise with even the CEO of EA implying that they are aiming to take down the big boy at the top of FPS line.
What ever your opinion one thing is for sure, change is good, and we should do everything we can to demand change from gaming companies.
