Why are you still playing this game?

Ive been reading many post on this forum about people hating on this game. Im not having the bests of times with it but then i see people say, why are still playing it then?

I answer with this...what else is there to play?
I mean surely most of the xbox community atm are playing this game. Within a few weeks, i think ill be done with this game but im gonna need a new online game to play.

But what is there to play??
Tempted to go back to WaW or MW1 or i could wait it out untill BF:BC2

What do you guys think?

Much love, muridin

I keep playing in the hope that I'll become as good as I was at CoD4, which would allow me to enjoy it as a gaming experience.

It's like those parents who have their first kid, the kid is wonderful, exceeds in every aspect, then they have a second, it fails at life, sure they'll still love it, but inside they think "Oh fuck, what happened?"

Okay, it isn't like that at all But um, I do also agree, multiplayer it has something that not many games can offer: playability. Sure nothing special, just prestige and shit to add length. It is pretty simple, it's CoD or Halo, and right now Halo is really fucking bland (for me) so it's CoD all the way. Just wait for Bad Company 2, I have a feeling that BC:2 will be fucking epic. But wait and see my friend.

Because I like to play it, it's a fun game, not without flaws of course.

Basically what I wanted to say. Half of the time it's too frustrating to enjoy, but I'll have a fun game now and then.

MP is still fun (with all it's flaws) I also picked up COD 2 and have been going through that on Veteran.

Once my copy of Assassins Creed gets here I'll be playing that for a while.

I stopped playing the online for now. I am into GOW2 right now. I still play single player on MW2 but that's it. Once the online is fixed I might give it a go again.

I play because it's a solid game. Not perfect but what game is? Best game available IMO. I also like Demolition more then any CoD4 gametype so that's another reason. I do miss my m40.

I'm still playing because I thoroughly love the game! Sure it has its problems and glitches, but what game doesn't? I just love the game! I have so much fun when I'm sitting in front of it with a bag of Doritos and a Mountain Dew!

Its the first COD game where ive actually completed it on Veteran. I also hate WWII type games, so I didnt get into WaW much. Also its probably my first FPS type game where I have a decent rank online.

Of all the games ive purchased in Q4, and still unfinished, I keep coming back to MW2. No idea why.

Im still playing because I'm going to get a high enough killstreak going to earn a nuke legit one damn it. OH hell, who am I kidding? I keep playing because I am trying to get better at getting kill streaks and because right about now when the job hunt is going for shit and the money is dwindling I need something that lets me shoot people.

If you want a legit nuke, use the killstreak:
Harrier, Chopper Gunner, Nuke.

My friend has managed 6 legit nukes and I've managed 2, so it's a bit easier with this, as long as you don't get people destroying your crap.

I'm still playing this game because.... It's CoD and I want to get 10th prestige in a CoD game.

I'm still playing it bcos.... I love playing it..
the only thing i cant stand is something that cant be fixed.. ie campers and heart beat squatters. but i understand that i cant like everything about it. so i just get on with it and try to not let the cheap ass campers get to me.

to those who are constantly moaning about the game.. get lost and play something else. the guys who are enjoying the game are sick of your incessant moaning.

I play to get level 70 since I got top level in CoD4 and WaW. That and hopes that the fags that play any new game that comes out will move on and ruin a different game and CoD4 veterans will show up and play correctly. Yes I said correctly! If you notice in the videos that showed multiplayer before the game came out no one was camping, and from the looks of it the game played out EXACTLY like CoD4. Also hopefully the "shitty-ness" will be fixed by a long series of patches and title updates. Plus the fact that friends will be getting this for X-Mass so I want to be a high level to shove it in their faces that I have an ACR or AK-47 and they don't.

Because i ignore all the noobs and little kids screaming and just mute them all. I quit out soon as i am in a rust match. If i get killed with someone with the 1887's then i just find him then kill him then use them.

Well, I have to get good enough to be able to get a Harrier strike in first. I've been playing objective based games mostly and trying to rack up kills by defending the area but then somebody running with the 1887s comes up from behind and kills me or I'm the only guy at the post and the whole enemy team just made a mad rush to me or...well, you get the idea. Right now though with being in low prestige I don't have all killstreaks unlocked again.

This game is still a great game but it definately needs some more maps - many of the current ones seem the same :/ Sure campers and little kids are annoying but as for lag it is little to none - of course depending on the host but it is certainly more than playable.

I haven't even touched the campaign yet as I have been busy with multiplayer and a little spec ops.

I know for a fact that I will still be playing this online when the new BF comes out, purely because the online play is much smoother and the game looks much better overall.

name a game out at the minute that doesnt have bugs or glitches. the more advanced games become the more open they are to coding errors or slight design faults. this can be said for any game not just mw2. more and more people are out there now to try and find these expoits too as it seems to be the new 'cool' thing to do.

its a case of taking the rough with the smooth, where u have fun pwning people wih your chopper gunner and destroying teams with your pavelows or red dot ump45, u have to overlook the camping heart beat squatters or the scrubs using one man army and danger close noobtubes and take it on the chin. most ppl complain about tactics they can use themselves. just have a class setup to counter them when u come across them.

I play this game because it is great fun. iv gotten to know the maps, have found some good vantage points and get a stable score or k/d in most games. when the holiday break is over and IW get back in studio im sure we can expect a few more subtle patches and quick fixes for alot of peoples complaints.
