The Question: Do you want Black Ops II?

5:30 PM on 05.05.2012 // Jonathan Holmes

[Every Friday (or whenever), Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

Last week say the official start of the Black Ops II hype-train. The first trailer was released. Pre-orders are already through the roof. The game's success is all but guaranteed. 

That said, there's also been plenty of hate slung at the game. Some say the graphics are bad. Other's are saying they're just burnt out on the series. Still others are claiming that they've always hated Call of Duty and as a result, that this new entry has already earned their pre-hate due to it's name alone. Call of Duty may be one of the most successful series going right now, but lets not forget how many gamers there are out there, and how many of them want nothing to do with the series. There are millions of people that love Call of Duty, but millions more that want nothing to do with it. 

Personally, I'm feeling pretty optimistic about the game. The futuristic setting and the ability to play as human soldiers, airborn drones, and "large robots" could offer a lot of surprises. I'm not quite sure that I want the game yet, but I'm definitely interested in finding out more about it. 

How about you? What would it take for you to get psyched for Black Ops II? For you diehard CoD fans, could anything cause you to not be excited for it? Treyarch definitely isn't serving up more of the same this time around. Do you think that's a good thing or a bad thing?
