    Devil's advocate: You're shipping five SKUs of the same game, two for platforms that have never had a COD game, a third that has had a COD game but for the most part a different principal development team working on it. You're developing those games to all street the same day for a publisher that "slipped" is not even in their vocabulary. The games are all the same core content but at least two of them -- PS4 and WiiU -- have extra features based upon the specific platform's unique features and not all those features are multiplayer-specific. Granted, you have spare teams working on the various platform versions, but that in itself can be a problem. You've got so many teams working on so many SKUs it's rolling hell coordinating all the work to assure the core content is the same.

    So you reuse some assets to make date. Because if you don't make date you die. You can't even suggest to your publisher you won't make date or they'll kill a few of your team just to make sure you know you don't make date you die. You wind up reusing more assets than you normally would, not just textures and the like but in-engine cutscene geometry. You hope nobody notices. But this is avid gaming married to the Internet. Someone somewhere will notice and everybody who bothers keeping tabs will find out. And you STILL take in a billion dollars in one day.

    If I'm making that game I'll take the billion and take the slapped wrist or a punch in the face for recycling the sort of assets it's looks bad to recycle. Because I know by next year only a few will remember and next time I'll take 1.2 billion.

    all would be logical is it wasn't for the fact that they do these things all the time in COD

    But it's COD, not necessarily FPS titles in general. COD gets lumped in with FPS but let's face it, COD is really it's own genre. No, COD is really it's own MEDIUM. There are COD games and COD game clones, and then there's the other medium called video games.

    You're kidding right? No games like COD ? So there is no first person shooters set in a millitary setting?

    I'm joking. Sort of. There's some truth to it, though. COD is COD and it's a fairly distinct entity in gaming and they will not take a new path or try to innovate until revenue for the franchise starts appreciably slipping. And Activision has a habit of killing off, or "placing on hiatus, franchises so they stop earning, rather than trying to produce some original in the same series. Other military FPS, some of them, try to innovate or at least introduce a distinct style of gameplay. The ones that don't, in least in multiplayer, usually they merely mimic COD multiplayer. Often unabashedly.

    It's taken two years to make this game, surely they shouldn't need to reuse stuff like this.

    Guess it makes sense how Ghost is the first COD to not have broken its predecessor's launch records

    Good enough. But speaking of COD similarities, I got to saying the Silversun Pickups song Checkered Floor should be the COD theme song because there's always at least one map starting with MW with interiors floored in black and white checkered tile.

    Well if COD has been the same $#@!ty game since MW1, this doesn't strike me as odd or anything. They can do this also, I mean not to disrespect some of you but this game is aimed towards some of the dumbest gamers who don't actually care about real gaming all they want is the same thing over and over.

    No. I don't care nor comment about how people use or abuse grammar on the Internet -- it's a casual medium. I make an exception when you employ that astoundingly bad grammar in a post explicitly describing fans of a certain sort of video game as dumb. Further, implying that you in eschewing such common gaming fare are smart, WHICH you ably demonstrated you likely are not.

    What irks me about your post is that you really believe your own bull$#@!. You really believe that by definition COD franchise fans are dumb, certainly less intelligent than you, and lacking proper taste in games. That's fine if you want to try and make that case but you can at least bother which-hunting your baseless presumptions.

    Amen. I keep trying to like GTA games and I keep buying them to try and get it, but I keep, overall, hating them. But I don't think people who like GTA games are dumb. One of the brightest guys I know is a GTA maniac. We have a lot of other similar tastes, especially in books and film, even some other games. It's in the matter of GTA our tastes diverge. Wildly diverge. He's not dumb. I figure I'm not either. Hell, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I've been dumb all these years and I just don't know it. Calling me dumb isn't going to make me smarter or "improve" my tastes in games, though.

    People are seriously getting this angry about 18 seconds of reused motion cap? Good god man. If this offends you, maybe you should re-evaluate what is important in your life.
