@ West-Side - Yeah, BO2 does have a great campaign and a memorable villian. It's amazing that it's been carrying the franchise in multiplayer for the last 3 years. I don't think there's another COD that can really claim that. Here's hoping BO3 can have a great Encore to the series.
I just loved the characters in BO & BO2 bro.
In BO, you had this great connection with your group. Plus Dragovich and other antagonists in the game were very memorable to me. Then in BO2, you have Raul; a bad guy but I actually wanted him to win in the end. I thought the main character had no personality at all in BO2. Woods, Ghost and Reznov are my homies, always and forever. Did so many epic battles with those dudes by my side.
When I killed Makarov, I was happy. I felt his evil throughout the game. But with Raul it was different. Both were masterminds and memorable villains; but Raul fought for revenge and family. I know I know, he was a terrorists but at least he had values and loved (protected) his family.
I can respect that about him.
The way he tricked the entire US military special forces to hack into their system was sheer genius. I'm glad he is still alive (depending on the action you took in the end), and I pray we see him again in future installments.
Makarov got 2 games, a guy like Raul deserves the same love.
BO2, with the decision making scheme was also very well done. I really loved the twists and turns in that game plus some of the missions were absolutely amazing.
I look at BO & BO2, the same way I look at COD4 & MW2.
The first games were very realistic and the story line was exceptionally intriguing. In the 2nd installment, all hell broke loose but it was extremely fun nonetheless. You just felt like a total bad ass.
I hope BO3 isn't the next Ghosts or AW (although AW wasn't too bad, I liked some of the new elements their introduced to the game and the campaign wasn't nearly as bad as Ghosts).
Both games had the right ideas but the execution was poor.
I mean, it was pretty bad ass to be apart of an elite team known as Ghosts and I loved the main antagonist (Rourke) but the ending, and the 2nd half of the game was a complete and utter failure.
