what disappoints me most about the CoD franchise is that they started as some of the most high quality original games that were ever made. CoD basically invented iron sights and made them standard in PC FPS forever. I played CoD 1 competitively and for awhile the competitive scene was some of the most exciting esports that i have ever seen. for just a minute it was even more popular than counterstrike was. i even played a match against the legendary quake player f4tal1ty who was trying CoD for awhile. (he sucked but was playing with pro teams when he was new to the game)

So basically i have these amazing memories and nostalgia of the first 2 games and then when modern warfare came around there was a bunch of drama behind the scenes that caused alot of the developers to leave infinity ward. i think activision refused to pay the developers their royalties or something. the series just sold out and became a cash cow after that. you could tell the passion that made the first couple games so good was gone. dont get me wrong modern warfare was decent, but i still enjoy ww2 shooters more as i just love bolt action rifles both IRL and in game. they take real skill and precision vs lame suped out semi-auto sniper rifles or spray and pray machine guns.

Ah well. I dont have the time to play any games competitively anyway. I mean the team I was on scrimmed for hours a day. It was exciting to be playing on the very top level of something though. If I could, i would quit my job tomorrow and go back to playing competitive FPS on a team. Taught me alot about leadership skills and teamwork skills too, surprisingly enough. Just a fun ass time.

moket you look like the jerk here for talking shit to waves for his obviously tongue-in-cheek response..




also lol @ waves' response.
i told moket that he has no personality once and ever since then hes been following me around trying to get me riled up. i find it adorable actually, that he can invest that much energy into his quest for hate and indecency toward his fellow man. it actually feeds my ego and makes me feel important. i like that.

i mean its not like being an asshole magically grants you a personality. thats the mistake most guys make, too. for some reason guys think being a jerk makes you cool and increases your social value. in fact you just come off as more of a jerk and more and more people dislike you. you alienate yourself by being that guy.

Just take a moment to realize you're defending a videogame man.. that's all.

Fuck it right?

Nothing wrong with enjoying CoD.. to your credit you got grieves with your pokemon jab. You can call 13 year olds fags all day long and it sort of matches with running around catching Pikachus

But that's all video games. Don't defend them. They mean absolutely nothing and say nothing about you.. unless you start taking them seriously. Then it starts saying something..
