NOTE: I was going to talk about Ghosts specifically, but it is not restricted to Ghosts, and rather our Wii U CoD games (which I hope will continue to exist). Also, I am taking this as a from-the-ground-up perspective, which means the base game (as it is at release).
I am sick of all the whining. I know there's problems, and we have our disadvantages, but it just gets old. Call it beating a dead horse; Call it what you will. Some things like this issue are just stupid to keep complaining about. And the negative press that is your stupid outcries won't help our overall community's cause, which is to improve our experience; Improve our community size.
This game - It's just a game! Don't complain about the price of it. If you spent enough time to complete 1 Prestige, even if you don't feel it was worth it, you have gotten your moneys-worth out of the game. (And that's only in-match online play!) Let's say it took you 1 day (24 hrs) of playtime exactly to complete 1 prestige (which is very fast, actually. My average is around 1 day, 4 hrs (28 hrs) per prestige). At the full price of the game (around $60) and 24 hrs playtime, the money you spent is $2.50/hr to play this game. Myself, I'd say that's worth it. You can pay a couple bucks to ride a ride once at a fair, probably around 30-60 for a few rides at an amusement park (maybe more or less, and it depends on the park), or you can do what we do and spend however much up front to play a game for as long as you want. Worth it? I think so. And oh by the way, the longer you play, the more the game becomes worth it. Replay value.
After that, I have a few questions for you:
If you're not having fun, why are you still playing this game? (Games are meant to be entertainment - i.e. fun.)
If you think these games are so much better on other systems, why aren't you there? Or, why are you still here? (Nintendo only - Do you have a computer? they make it for those, too.)
I, myself, am having a blast on this game, for the most part. If you're not, then find another one that you do have fun at, or at the very least try to change some things up until you ARE having fun. Who cares if it's nooby? If it's fun, go for it man!
And now we get to the main point of this discussion:
Our game is the best version. Hands down. Even though we are behind on patches. DLC DLC DLC..why do you care so much? Is it cool? Sure it's cool, but it's also like buying another full price game to play a few maps and maybe a few guns or power-ups on a game you already own. Stupid? I think yes. We have our own studio that does an EXCELLENT job on our ports. Perfect? No. But quite excellent, given their resources and time restrictions. We get the same game that everybody else gets (flaws included), which puts us all on the same playing field. What puts ours over the top is our controller options, Dual Screen Co-op, and Off-TV Play. Sure, apparently the PS4/Vita has an Off-TV Play option, but I hear it's quite horrendous..
Say what you want about whoever, but I will continue to have fun on our CoD games. If you're not enjoying it and are still playing, that's your own fault. If you're frustrated because of this noob and that noob using this thing that isn't patched and that thing that isn't patched, go beat them at their own game, or go find a better one. IKY out.
