My first 40 minutes with Crysis2 felt exactly like this
I actually just hit Prestige level 12 last night. I would definitely agree with you that Modern Warfare 1 & 2 are the cream of the crop as far as MP games go but as the crowds progress to the next game, I have to move along with them. (I don't really like Black Ops that much)
I guess getting into campaign-type games is a little too difficult for me as I don't have the budget to buy more than one or two games a year.
Speaking of the Modern Warfares/Infinity Ward group, don't expect another high level COD from Infinity Ward anytime soon. Did you hear about the West/Zampella walkout?
I can respect that for sure. In order to dominate the most people you have to move on to the next one; I'm just happy to hear you say you don't care too much for Black Ops. My K/D is better than all those on my friends list (not on your level though....think it was something like 2.02 or so) but it's just a boring games with pretty bland maps, and I just don't dig the weapons...I'm a shotgun and sniper guy and both those classes of weapons suck for the most part.
Yeah, I hope you know I wasn't telling you to move on to new games and all that; I was just answering your question about what I do when I beat a single player game. When I was in college I was the same way; I'd at most get 5 new games a year and those would be Christmas and birthday presents.
I know. I'm strongly considering going with Battlefield 3 this year because of the Infinity Ward thing. I've always like the CODs because they are more arcadey, but I'm really skeptical of what they'll put out this year.

When West and Zampella left, they took a hell of a lot of other employees with them and started a new company called Repawn Something or Another. Now I know they won't put out anything for a year or two, but I'd be on the lookout for them to put out some insane COD type game on steroids just to take money from IW. Treyarch and some other company is working on the newest COD set to release this year and I think they've gone back to Modern Warfare (where it should be for the rest of the franchise's lifespan, IMO), but I'm a bit skeptical of what they'll be able to do. World at War and Black Ops have been subpar.
I wouldn't be surprised to see them fall by the wayside like SOCOM did (which is coming out soon btw and it looks like trash) and see some new online game take the helm as the most popular. It won't be MAG, I can guarantee that.
