You know, I remember one day where I was sitting in History class back in '07, and this girl in my class named Sarah was going on and on about how she loved Halo.
This mindset is one which I have found accross the board. So many, many people love Halo, for reasons unknown to me. And even though it's probably not all that bad of a game- I hate it. Because of the impact it has had, and the kind of people it attracts. I'm more of a person who enjoys niche games, or ones of less popularity, because it kind of makes me feel like it's my own in a way.
I hate Halo. But then there came a game called Modern Warfare. This game took my hate for Halo, and expanded upon it many, many, many times. My hatred for this game is so great, so deep, I can hardly express it with words. But allow me to try...
Back in '07 when it first came out, MW was "the thing", and has remained "the thing" for almost 3 years. But I could handle it. I could handle it because it seemed like a decent game, and I even owned it myself.
And then, then comes the tragedy, the monstrosity, that is- modern warfare 2.
But why is it so terrible? Is it because its story sucks? Is it because it has horrible game play? No. It's terrible because it is the exact same game it use to be. It has the exact same graphics, the exact same game play, the exact same weapons, the exact same feel, and most of the maps are just larger rehashes of old COD4 ones.
But no, I could handle this. Even though it put me righto n the brink, I could handle this. It was the hype, and the enjoyment of this game even after its release, that made me explode.
"9.5/10" - IGN
Are. You. Serious?
Every single publication out there gave it a 90 something, if not a perfect score.
It does not deserve it.
It makes me so mad that people are actually so pathetic and lackluster that they would actually spend $60 on the medicore, highly over-rated, rehashed bucket of smegma-coated prostate juice which is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
I am so incredibly disappointed by this game, by others for liking it, and in myself for actually spending $60 on it thinking it would be halfway decent. I learned a valuable lesson.
And as if it weren't enough for them to completely re-brand the original game, that actually had to implement poor versions of game play mechanics from Killzone 2, like the sentry bots and turrets and whatnot.
I'm sorry, but anyone who actually enjoys playing this heap of garbage must have a brain the size of a slightly salty peanut. I am so pissed at this game.
