In today’s video, we discuss something subjective – are video game remasters good or bad? And...
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare YouTube Dislikes Reach 2M, 2nd Most Disliked YouTube Video
Update: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is now YouTube’s 2nd most disliked video.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare YouTube dislikes have finally reached two million. Fans in the comments section of its reveal trailer were eagerly waiting for this moment and kept a check on it daily to see where the number is at.
After 11 days, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare reveal trailer reached 2 million dislikes. What should be even more concerning for Activision is that no one is even defending the game in the comments section, Facebook, Twitter, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if #RIPCOD starts to trend.
The hate is strong with this one.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare reveal trailer has over 300,000 likes, over 19 million views, 2 million dislikes, and almost 500,000 comments; 95% of which either hate the game or are simply trolling Activision for once again recycling.
The video isn’t even that bad if you ask me and after you watch for the 14th time it kind of start to grow on you but that is what COD does.
Meanwhile, Battlefield 1 trailer reactions are very positive, fans believe that EA had the balls to change its approach this year and bring something that they actually wanted to play.
But when you look at Infinite Warfare, it seems like the same recycled experience with the only new addition being Dogfights in space.
Infinite Warfare story revolves around Earth’s struggle to keep a hold of its resource and not let what’s remaining fall into the wrong hands.
There are two aspects that aren’t in favor of Call of Duty in my view. One is that fans don’t want sci-fi setting, the second being complaints about low quality from fans that actually do want to see sci-fi setting.
Call of Duty needs to redefine what it is because at this point Activision seems confused of what it wants its franchise to be. Our editor Sarmad Lillah thinks the hate on Call of Duty makes no sense but I disagree, it makes absolute sense because Activision does not listen to the community (although I do agree that we need to wait till more of COD is showed to be completely fair to it; but long time COD fans already have a perfect idea what it would be like).
I am no fan of EA but I admire how they showed the guts to go back to World War 1. It all could go horribly wrong but at least they are trying.
Meanwhile, Activision plays it safe every year by recycling its assets (it even uses animations from COD 4), gameplay mechanics and stories that fail to generate emotions within the player.
Why do you think fans are more excited about Call of Duty 4 remastered? Because they have an emotional attachment with its characters and amazing multiplayer experience which they had with their friends. Name one Call of Duty that maintained that standard besides Modern Warfare series?
No disrespect to Black Ops, it was wonderful game as well.
Do let me know what you think about COD and how can Activision improve it in the future.
