I think I might skip Modern Warfare 3 this time. Unless of course it gets awesome reviews, but I havent played Black Ops in a long time. The multiplayer maps didn't feel very inspired. The maps in general have been on a downward path since the first Modern Warfare where they were nearly perfect. The single player in Black Ops was a mess and a chore to get through. I just hope Battlefield 3 lives up to expectations

MW2 for me was perfect.

Although I think you're unfairly passing an opinion on MW3. Treyarch =/= Infinity Ward. The only game to judge MW3 on is MW2, not Black Ops.

Are they even the same company anymore though? I thought almost all of the IW people left

I couldn't disagree more. The maps on Black Ops were horrible.

I was just teasing anyway. I don't have any problems with the maps on Black Ops but I haven't played COD 4 so I can't compare.

I was also just talking about the game in general. I find it more enjoyable than its predecessor, less frustrating.

I know a lot of people hated them, but I kinda liked the killstreaks in MW2

Yes and no. It was the lead developers, if I'm not mistaken, who were fired. The regulars who produce the game are still there. Just someone different pulling the strings. Something tells me that MW3 will either be exactly like MW2 with different maps (to play it safe) or vastly different (under new control).

But the main point is that Treyarch is full of awful ideas and Treyarch has no say in how MW3 comes out.

God awful. And the mechanics of the game were ever so slightly worse than MW2 to make it even worse.

I loved them. I suspect it's the people who were bad and couldn't get them down who hated them (and the same people that can kill you in a total crapshoot in Black Ops).

And the frame rate for Black Ops was horrid too. That's the first thing I noticed. The Modern Warfares are so silky smooth. Like a caterpillar's cocoon or a freshly shaven baby bottom

From what I've read, the PS3 version of Black Ops was a complete mess. Too bad, I far prefer both World and War and Black Ops to either of the Modern Warfares multiplayer wise. Thought the campaign was a hundred times better than Modern Warfare 2 as well. Honestly, Modern Warfare 2 is probably the most disappointing game for me personally of this generation. An awful pile of trash in every single regard. Campaign, multiplayer, annoying poorly thought out spec ops mode, etc. All were the worst crap Infninity Ward ever created. Sorta glad the company is a compete shell now, they completely lost the plot at the end. Such a far cry from how great the original game Call of Duty was on PC.

And yeah, saying that "infinity Ward" is making this game is a complete joke as well. Everyone who mattered is gone, and there are essentially 3 different development groups working on different aspects of this one. I'll buy it, but I'm expecting the exact same game we've received for the last 4 iterations of the franchise. Survival mode will hopefully be fun at least.

At least Battlefield will seem like a legitimate "new game".

Like I said before... it'll likely be either something that falls apart because of all of the different workers on the project or it will be exactly what MW2 was, just updated with new campaign, spec ops, and multiplayer maps. If it's the latter, we're in for a treat.

I don't understand your utter distaste for MW2, but I think most people would disagree with you there and say that Infinity Ward's installments in the series have always been more popular. Although I admit, I was a much bigger fan of Call of Duty 3 as opposed to Call of Duty 2.

Just picked up Mass Effect 2. It was dirt cheap, don't really know much about the series.

Something to tide me over till NHL 12.
