OK. Let me tell you why I’m making this post. I uploaded a video the other day with this title [“Thanks Bystander SCX, Check Out KonsoleKingz + SSF2HD”]. In less than a day’s time there were over 100 comments most of which arguing which game was better, Call of Duty 4 or Call of Duty 5. Do you see any mention of Call of Duty 4 or Call of Duty 5 in that title? No. It was question I added last minute at the end of the video.
My History With the Call of Duty Series
So I got into the series at Call of Duty 2. That game was fucking EPIC to me! I played that game until there was no playing left to do (got all 1000 achievement points on that one). What made it awesome was the NONE STOP ACTION! Just scene after scene of RATATATATAT! BOOM! “This way!” “LOOK OUT!” You get the idea. The controls were tight… Yeah, just super sexiness.
Since I was so excited about 2 I couldn’t wait for 3. I bought it right when it came out. After playing it for 30 minutes or so I was like “Why is this game so BALLZ!?” I couldn’t even beat that game. It sucked compared to part 2. That’s when I found out there were 2 different teams making the games. [Infinity Ward] and [Treyarch]. After that experience my mind created these two equations:
Infinity Ward + CoD = EPIC! | Treyarch + CoD = BALLZ!
So naturally I was SUPER excited when CoD4 was dropped and… THAT SHIT WAS THE FUCKING EPIC SAUCESNESSES!!!
I don’t do much online play, but the single player game was AWESOME. The stuff I did online was fun too, but I didn’t play it enough to really comment much. Anyhow, this isn’t a CoD4 review it’s a comparison. 🙂
So, knowing that Treyarch was making CoD5, I just referred to my diagram and decided to skip it. My gut tells me I’m right, but I thought I’d get the opinion of the public. 😀 I think I’m going to rent or borrow CoD 5 just to confirm my suspicions, but until then lets get this sorted the old fashioned way.
CoD4 Vs. CoD5 – Final Battle
Here are two polls. One for single player and one for the online for both CoD4 and CoD5. If you have an additional thought to add, do so in the comments below.
Lets See Who Wins
I’m not even going to vote in the poll because I’m really not qualified to. I understand that there are going to be people that vote even though they’ve only played one or none of the games. The results should still be interesting. I’ll follow up on this post after I get a chance to review CoD5.
