Eric Vs. 365 - Day 344 - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

For whatever reason I bought 3 different Call of Duty games in the span of a week a while back. They weren't even "new" games, either, as I had already played and reviewed them in the past. But I spent $50 and got 3 games and was all like, "Oh boy, I remember liking these when they came out, so this will be fun". I was wrong. They aren't fun. Call of Duty sucks. Even the ones I like suck. Today's Eric Vs. 365 game is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Read more and watch gameplay here.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is cool because it's basically Halo and Call of Duty smashed together. It's a sci-fi Calladoody and is kind of awesome. It looks fantastic, has awesome weapons, has spaceship battles where you actually fly little fighter ships, and even has spacewalks where you walk around outside of giant capital ships in the vacuum of space and fight dudes in zero-g. It was innovative and a breath of fresh air at a time when Call of Duty was getting boring and stale. It was easily my favorite COD at the time.

And then they just moved on and never went back. Instead we've gotten more Black Ops (boring), more World War 2 (boring), and a Modern Warfare reboot. Where's my sci-fi Calladoody?

Not that I actually care anymore, because I'm never going to play another Call of Duty ever again. I'm so bored of the guided tour around a battlefield gameplay. I'm super, super, super bored of shooting people. I'm not impressed with the spectacle anymore. Calladoody and Battlefield and Gears of War can just go away. I'm not going to play them anymore. 

That has been the interesting result of playing 365(6) games in a year - I've figured out what I truly like and dislike in games and am excited to move on and only play stuff I really like rather than playing stuff because I feel obligated to.
