This weekend, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (I will be typing the whole title shut up) had playable multiplayer for free on Steam. I've been playing it on and off all day today, and am conflicted on whether or not to buy it.
See, I love it. I love the stupid guitar riff when you get a new level and gear, and the instant respawn, and the almost stupidly-over-the-top attitude the games has.
The main problem, however, is that Activision is involved.
The game is currently $50.99. The price I can live with if it's for a developer/publisher I love. Infinity Ward is an excellent developer, don't get me wrong. But Activision is poison. both Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero have fallen to their tyranny, and Call of Duty is not far behind. Buying this game would support that.
But Goddammit that stupid guitar riff is stuck in my head Goddammit.
Anyway think I should buy it or just wait or just avoid it? Leaning towards avoiding it, though.
