Too soon to make a game about killing people for oil.
COD is a WWII series- this will be a big mistake.

I think it will be a good change. What I mean from good is that: How many more battles can they use for World War II? I mean...CHANGE it already. I'm tired of killing Nazis....Gosh. Though I am disappointed in the selection of the setting, I think it will be good since Infinity Ward will make it :D

They have alot of other wars they skipped. Korean War, Vietnam, and tons of others... why choose sucha sensitive one right now?

Minty
12-24-2006, 02:05 AM
Because there wasnt the same level of international support in those two wars, i.e. it was AMerica versus.

They left out the true World Champions of War, so the game wouldnt sell in the UK.

magictroll
12-24-2006, 02:13 AM
Although that's true, don't you think those games would have more support than one set in the irak? there are WAY more people who have a problem with the current war.

Minty
12-24-2006, 02:19 AM
Yeah, thats why I said that I think it is a big mistake to make this game. I think that their are a lot of people that are still grieving for loved ones, and this is another thing for them to cope with.

I think the Iraq was is one that many people will never be comfortable with- the whole world is pretty much against this war- evn the US officials have said it was a mistake.

I like the CoD games for the fact that the weapons are simple, you cant pick up invincibilty and that you can 'relive' some of the battles that iv heard about since I was a kid.

or you know they could always make up their own war....nobody would notice...

As a game series, it should stick to WWII and that is all.

The only other thing I could agree with is if it became more based in some eastern wars. The Japanese front or even possibly into the Korean or Vietnam War would be a good direction to go in. The title COD reminds me of people rising to the occasion or the call of the nation to arms. These 2 wars have the same feeling. Switching to more modern times just wouldn't have the same feel right now.

Another problem youd have with Vietnam War being in it, is that you always have to fight on the winners side, and not many people want to play as Vietnam....

50,000 americans died in vietnam multiply that by 9 and thats how many vietcongs died.....i dont like it when they say we lost the war...but in vh1 we got a new president and he pulled ALL troops out....technicly America pussy'd out cause of a president...but in i think we won...even though america pussy'd....damn...that just doesnt sound good

I think they should stick to WWII, if they wanted to move more into the future there are plenty of other wars between now and then that were actual wars rather than slaughters.

They could have the 2009 invasion on Iran (like in timetrumpet) where America loose in 9 months.

As long as they don't ruin the series by doing a Medal of Honor.

Funny...Losing to Iran. Dude, we'll kick their ass :D F-22 Raptor and the Abrams tank. Along with the Predator Drone, we won't go down easy ;). Oh, and the Blitzkrieg is hard to stop for a third world country :D As for Vietnam just as Iraq is insurgency. All they do is hit and run, but if it was a battle, we'd win.

CoD can't keep on WWII because they'll run out of battles, eventually they'll need to switch wars.

Well Iran has a more powerful army than Iraq and very patriotic people who hate America. The US will definately do FAR worse against Iran than they did against Iraq ... if they go ahead with this. I have faith that the US government won't make the same mistake again.

What, youd say you won the war in Iraq????
You may have killed more people, but id say the press and the world wouldnt really say America has won the war- oh wait, it was declared over how many years ago??

There are plenty more battles that they can do before they start making people murder people for oil

I think setting COD in modern times would kill the "epic" feel of the games. They should expand out of the European theater and allow us to play in the Pacific theater. Perhaps we could fight as the Ghurkas of India against the Japanese. Also the fight in the Philipines and some of the other pacific islands. They have really just scratched the surface and could do alot if they get creative.

Zef

All the stuff about America invading Iran and losing was just a sketch from Timetrumpet, possibly the greatest time travelling show know to Britain (and the Channel Islands)

I liked how COD 2 had fighting from the Russian side, COD 3 had the Polish and Canadians too. COD 4 will surely have to have another random country that saved the French, possibly Wales or even Peru.

I don't see why CoD would go from WWII, a war filled with epic struggles between superpowers to determine the fate of Europe & the world, to a war between a horribly mismananaged superpower and a 3rd world country with no well known battles. Here's a recap of Iraq for you: Saddam's forces crumble to the Americans in uncontested routs. Islamic extremists flood to Baghdad undercover as citizens. The rest of the war is fought by roadside bombs and hit and runs. NO BATTLES. Anyways if there going to do this they should show Bush dancing arround like a nimrod in the flightsuit under the "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banner. That an Rumsfield dodging questions about soldiers having to fight without armor.

Call of Duty needs to stay on the track it is. In fact, I believe CoD3 should be the last in a trilogy. They need to take that team and make up a new first person shooter, with a new name. Seriously, they already have good games using futuristic war like GRAW and Rainbow Six.

OK, listen I've had enough with website moderators abusing my rights. My career keeps the gaming industry alive with future information, screenshots, press conference covering . I pour my heart into this industry and the very least you could do is show it. You call your self an admin? Your pathetic. go ahead, ban me again. I don't care. I just want to say that you have no right to abuse soemthing I created in the first place. So im abusing your site? You made it, you should have prepared for this. My thread, I "go away" for a week, people just do the fuck they want when I say, quite clearly, 1 post per person. You all make me sick. i have a family, a clan, a decent job, and reputation in my town which means people recognize me in the street. i dont need to waste my time in this sub-standard, mediocre forum site that is "dedicated" to informing you of 360 achievements. I do this as a career,and I'll be damned if you can do any better. Go ahead and ban, all I can say is that you people need to get a life. FFS if you like gaming, become a mag reporter and review games and travel to E3 and gaming events. Actually go out their and meet Bill Gates, Michael Moore and many employees form development teams. You all make me sick.

The point of forums are to discuss things. Who are you to restrict people to one post per topic?

N64...America didn't pussy out of Vietnam. We realized that we shouldn't have gone in in the first place. We have a nasty habit of trying to be world police: Iraq, Korea, and Vietnam to name the 3 major ones.

Also, to America, Vietnam was 10x more controversial, but to the world, Iraq is.

Personally I would like to see a war that hasn't been done before like WWI. Also, not for CoD, but I'd like to see a Medieval game that isnt a damn RPG or RTS.

Well in its defense the battlefield series kept moving forward in time and it seems to have gone quite well for them. (and I say this omitting the fact that moder combat was ever released:p)
