"CoD Fans Aren't Real Gamers," confirms Infinity Ward

As if it wasn't already blatantly obvious, Infinity Ward confirmed that [i]Call of Duty[/i] players aren't real gamers. They play it every night, yet they're far from hardcore gamers, and they'll keep buying the newest games regardless of platform. So, for that reason, there won't be any real changes to the franchise this generation (although that was to be expected, really). Discuss or ignore, I don't care. I'm just gonna laugh about it a bit more. Old, but gold, and even better: it's on the record.

            • "Real gamers" are people who enjoy games to the same extent that a film buff enjoys film. That's what the word was coined for and I stand by it. With that said, CoD players [i]can[/i] be gamers, but most aren't. I like CoD a lot but I'm mindful of the games and I'll defend to the death the mechanics I do and don't like in them. I understand the games well and I'm critical of them. This, coupled with my enthusiasm to play the games, makes me a gamer.

              So not only did they say their fans aren't gamers, but the journalist went as far as to say that to be a 'harcore gamer' you had to be an experienced MOBA or RTS player? -blam!-ing twats.

                          • If you play a game(s) quite often, then you are a gamer. That of course is my opinion. I play games, lots of them on console and PC. CoD is amongst them. I take this stance simply because if I had such a narrow view of things we could argue that people who only play FPS games are not gamers as they are simply buying and playing FPSers regardless of title. IF's personal stance about their community is an attempt to excuse their previous titles lack of true variation. Their argument being "if it aint broke dont fix it, the masses want a straight forward shooter, let us give it to them".

                            I think the point is that if you are the stereotypical cod player you aren't an actual gamer because all you play is cod and you are the idiotic COD is life!! person. I play cod but I also play battlefield, assassins creed, shadow of Mordor, BOI:rebirth, Injustice.... Edit: just read some of the posts and realized that people have been saying the same thing... Oops xD

                            Hmmm..I've been playing video games since NES. Fan of pretty much every genre of game from RPG to FPS, and I enjoy playing CoD. Problem? Gamer elitism is funny. But when you put it into perspective that a lot of socially inept gamers probably don't have much else to make them feel superior to other people it makes sense.

                            • But I play CoD among other games. Does that make me not a gamer? I'm also heavily into a lot of other games but I enjoy a few games of CoD every now and again.
