READ BOTTOM BEFORE REPLYING. IGNORING IGNORANT RESPONSES.
I find it pretty funny that people think MW2 is the best game. I'm not hating on MW2 whatsoever but NOT it's most well-made game in the series. A lot of the "faults" found in other games are found originally in the "best game ever" including but NOT limited to:
Fast Time-to-Kill one of the reasons people hated Cod Ghosts, but it was WORSE in MW2. All the ARs have (with stopping power) at Maximum, 3 shot kills, 4 at the most. In many cases, 2 shot kills were eminent.
Weapons failed to be balanced whatsoever UMP45 played the same role as the MSMC in BO2, MTAR-X/Vector in Ghosts, and ASM1 in AW, and was even more OP due to strafe speed found in it.
Overpowered Explosives Not limited to the Grenade Launcher... Scavenger guaranteed you both primary and secondary equipment, which is something people complained about in BO2, yet was WORSE in MW2.
Uncontrollable Flinching So IW decided to introduce this extreme system of flinching when shot, but there was no way to counter it. So basically, gunbattles depended on a little bit of connection, but were essentially random.
Modded Lobbies destroyed the value of the game in it's entirety. Being the first game to introduce titles & emblems, it was almost overwhelming. Of course, the value of these titles/emblems were ruined once people started getting into lobbies, etc.
****** Patches from IW They patched the ability to run 1.05x faster with a care package, but didn't think to turn down the damage on grenade launchers? Or even insert a delay before being able to kill the whole enemy team? Don't say they took skill, or that it even took skill to get spawn kills with the grenade launcher, since there were endless tutorials on YT to do it.
Again, awful attempt at balancing the perks in MW2 were ridiculously unbalanced. Commando should have never been put into the game, in fact, it would have a perfect time to bring in a standalone knife like found in BO2, and gave it the good lunge. Sitrep pro allowed you to hear every single person, regardless of whether the enemies were running Ninja Pro or not. I will not complain about how overpowered Stopping Power is in MW2 since it wasn't, but it never should have been introduced.
I'm aware people are going to disagree with me. I'm aware some of these points, maybe 5-10% of them, are subjective. The point of me making this topic is NOT to hate on MW2. I'm glad MW2 carried the COD series to the point where it's at now. The purpose of me creating this topic is to address the HYPOCRITES that hate on other COD games for reasons that aren't even proprietary to that game! (example: Fast TTK in Cod Ghosts, OP C4 in Black Ops II b/c of scavenger, guns being unbalanced in Ghosts, BO2, AW, etc.) You people claim that MW2 is the best game in the series. Sure, you're allowed to have your own opinion, but the validity you assume your opinion has is dis-claimed in this topic.
On TTG my name is TH9, thanks for understanding, and if you find this topic on there, lol.
