31/31 Day 9: Same old, Same old

 The last 31/31 I did was awful, and in one of my pictures, there was a racial slur in small text I edited it out, then just decided to make another 31/31. Sorry to the nine people who viewed it, and you have my sincere apologies. But let's talk about some stuff, shall we?

 

War never changes. No, I’m not quoting fallout, I’m speaking my mind on the internet’s favorite picking boy. Call of Duty. However, are gamer’s biased against the franchise? Is another franchise doing more of the same and still getting out unscathed? The answer is yes.

 

   Let’s check out Call of Duty first. It’s a great game, but it is just more of the same every single year. The game is fun to play, but the same old method gets tiring. Take cover. Shoot enemies. Mute some annoying kids. Get killed. Rinse and repeat. However, that is not the only franchise that does it. But first, let’s break down a rather broken phrase. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

 

    Here is my problem. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it, but if you don’t fix it, it gets stale. Honestly, you need to find a way to spice it up a bit. Give us a game changer. Not a new storyline and new eapons, a new way of playing. Make it third person for all I care, just find a way TO fix it. Because fixing is good. But then people feel nostalgic for the old stuff, so it isn't. Then go back to the same. Then people want it changed. Do you see my point?

 

    However, Nintendo gets away with it scot free. The New Super Mario bros series does the same thing again and again, but the internet never gets riled up about it. Think about that. Does the online community show favoritisim? In a way, yes. Everybody has had a nostalgic moment with Mario, and Call of Duty is rather new. 

 

   We need to take off our nostalgia goggles people. Both of these series need to change, fast. We can't accept something because it is nostalgic, we need to demand change! Sequels are fun, but they need to be game changers. That's all I got, because honestly, I am ashamed. So guys, sorry about all that jazz, and see you tomorrow.
