Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! (A Modern Warfare 2 rant)November 18, 2009
Ok… in short… if you guys don’t follow me on Twitter… WTF MODERN WARFARE 2?!?!
I’m not going to ruin the storyline for you guys, because honestly it’s pretty awesome in my opinion… until the end. At that point, I think the entire writing staff went to sleep and brought in guys from crappy summer Hollywood blockbusters. Why do I think this? Well… it’s quite simple…
THE GAME HAS NO ENDING. No, they pump you all up for what… AN OBVIOUS CONTINUATION TO MODERN WARFARE 3.
I really hate this jumping the shark bullshit. MW1 has this great and epic finisher that really made you feel proud of yourself. Hell, even MW2 has these seriously sick moments during the single-player that makes you squee with joy. (Even though one of the “twists” is easily callable.) But no, the ending is not only horribly contrived, but it doesn’t actually end. It just sets you up for the next game in the series, because that’s apparently how Activision wants to roll, so sayeth Bobby Kotick. Push the games that are doing well down our throats, and make sure they never, ever end.
Plus, Soap is apparently Iron Man, as he can take shitloads of punishment without dying. Just saying… just saying.
