So I’m sure I’ll end up buying COD: Black Ops because I’m dumb. I loved Call of Duty 4. World at War nearly drove me insane. Modern Warfare 2 had a decent single player and Spec Ops mode, but the multiplayer can go die. I become a little more disappointed with each game. They only way I could get some renewed faith in the games is with A) some new Spec Ops DLC for MW2, but I doubt that will happen because they are too busy worrying about miltiplayer and the millions of glitches or B) a solid all-around Black Ops game. I doubt either will happen.
I have a hard time justifying purchases of special editions of video games to myself. I know for just a bit more money you can get all sorts of extra stuff, but really, what good is any of it? A friend of mine bought the collectors edition of Gear of War 2 when it came out, but hardly touched the game until recently. He still mentions his buyer’s remorse from time to time. The game is why people are making the purchase. That being said, new games are too expensive, but that’s a different issue.
