MW2 Prestige: Yay or Nay?

Here's a random short rant. Just to start out, in Call of Duty 4, earning your prestige was just worthless (at least to me). The only reward you obtained was the new little emblem every time you did and the annoyance of having to start over on all of the challenges and weapons. It was more of a frustration to me than a fun challenge.

Sure, maybe you get bragging rights for having a higher rank, but it doesn't necessarily mean that you possess any skill. Just lots and lots of time to rank up and that has to mean that you don't have a life. Right? At least that was my argument when some little kid started some trash talk about being boss.

But in Modern Warfare 2 you gain some actual rewarding things for finally reaching the prestige point:

* Extra Custom Class
* New Group of Prestige Challenges
* Each gun gains two new challenges called Veteran and Master
* Callsign "The Prestige" and new Emblem

A lot more appetizing than CoD4, but is it still worth it?
At this point I'm not really convinced. I set my custom classes to what I'm comfortable with and what I'm skilled at using. That's just how I am. Feel free to tell me that I'm not experiencing what all the game presents, blah blah, but I enjoy playing to win. So sue me.

No I haven't 'prestiged' yet, and unless I hear a convincing argument about why I should, I'm not sure that I'm going to.

What do you think?
