Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Things gamers say about Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Call of Duty: Black Ops II revealed its multiplayer this week with a new trailer, and you better believe that people on the Internet had opinions about it! There's been a huge backlash against Call of Duty ever since Modern Warfare 3, and it's more than visible in the comments section of the reveal trailer on Youtube. 

Right now, there is an even split between those claiming the game is just the same old crap, and those saying there's far too much new crap. The video -- which has 48,577 Likes and 10,051 Dislikes -- also has a lot of comments suggesting Treyarch ripped off Halo. Apparently, the move to a futuristic setting has made Black Ops II a carbon copy of Bungie's shooter series.

There are plenty of people defending the game, too. Some of them are praising the new futuristic equipment, while ten billion comments trot out the old "You're all going to buy it anyway" chestnut. 

Of course, what you really want is some juicy examples of people spazzing out in the comment section and posting all kinds of inane and madcap nonsense. We got you covered. Check out below for a selection of some of the best reactions to the Black Ops II video.

"Will IT BE Able To Edit CHaracter???? PLS ANSWER I AM HUDE COD FAN BUT U STARTDED CREATING SHIT AFTER MW2" - TheMonstrai

"its been out once its its been out twice they wanted to bring it out a third time but it was just shite! of course im on about mw3 the shite-st game of all because infinity ward allways go downfall!.. Treayarch are the best and allways will be and i dont think anyone can Disagree because black ops 1 was the best game of all and now they are making the best game of 2012 called black ops 2 and you all know this is true because Treyarch is the best and there is no doubt about it! TREYARCH is BEST!" - zaeidW

"This game has way to many gadgets and a 2 shot kill weapon! Oh and a wallhack gun WTF IS THAT ABOUT!!!!!" - DurkaDurkaMuhamigia

"Rest in peace c.o.d black ops was shit mw3 was shit and this looks like toppin them both off as even worse" - higgod85

"this is worse than mw3 :/" - WorldGamingStrats

"This should be called " Call Of Halo"" - Henboogiesnacks

"ive forgotten what year we're up to with this CoD series. they've gone so far into the future it's ridiculous. and as ive played every CoD i find it stupid with the shit they come out with when we haven't even invented some of the crap they put in this game. they should stop going too far into the future and put the stuff they actually use in the army like BATTLEFIELD! If youve played CoD4 you'll understand because IT IS by far the best.if u want stuff from the future go play Halo or some shit." - ninTD909

"Well at least there's not playing dubstep over this trailer." - zdepapepa

"I bet when it comes everybody is like it then bitch about later on. I bitch about mw3,blkops,mw2,waw, and cod4. In short terms wast your money on it anyways. Mw2 and codwaw the best always. Cod will die after blkops2 comes. So start to bitch soon its not going better the mw3 its same shit as it so stop pretending about fags. Ps dont buy. It wast your money every 12 going ask their parents bitch about on xmas so peace." - Krahenbill45

"call of duty - worsed graphics ever." - Dominik Ryan

"So what game did I just watch? Looked a lot like...oh I don't know, Crysis maybe? No wait It was backlight wasn't it? No?? Ahh done deal it was ghost recon? No wait it was a price of shit copy cat game that's running on the same game engine it's been running on for the past 4 YEARS! Nice to see nothing original again, why don't they just pack it in? Everything they do with these new COD games has been done by someone else, who did a better job at it, before." - MrSpartanSpanker

"I just camed and i love it" - mAkehAvokk

"I hate how people hate on trearch because somehow they think infinity ward is better thats just gay how people dont understand how good blackops really was because they dont pay attension this game is gonna be amazing" - fait1011

"Ok MW3 worst game ever black ops is the best kids stop complaining about the future we already have 93% of the stuff in black ops 2 and little gay infinity ward lovers hate treyarch cause they suck at COD and people day infinity ward will keep on making CODs but they won't because Activision prefers trayarch" - colonialmarines582

"Ok here is how i see it its Call of dutey Not Halo this feels to advanced and i get that itll probally be great for story mode but ... i feel this is much to futureistic and there taking it much to far with scopes and all i konw there doing it diffrent but lets face it it cant be call of dutey when they use all this all and all i feel like ill still preorder (excuse my fail spelling)" - OvalFun

"OMG!! I'VE NEVER ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE!!!!" - antivenom2000000

"RIOT SHIELDS are you serious? I'm not getting this game." - NASAsmonkey

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.

XCom 2 is a good game that feels it needs to punish the player for not being omniscient. Still, it does have its moments. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXZvYRfVFuY

I've reluctantly sauntered back to Hyperdimensia Neptunia: Rebirth 2 after a lengthy hiatus. I'm really not feeling Broccoli nor Red. Maybe Red a little more since she's a waifu protector.

I can't choose simply one waifu for myself, so I've been obsessed with looking up netorare hentai. That way, I know every trick to steal all of your waifus away and keep them all to myself. It's the perfect plan! The only problem: I only have one dick. :(
