Halo vs CoD? We're comparing apples and oranges. I would say there are more people buy Halo games for the campaign than people who buy CoD for the campaign. The Halo is series is a completely different series from CoD.
Comparing reasons people buy Halo versus reasons people buy CoD...absurd.
Not really sure what you are alluding to.
I was disputing the claim that the campaign is the reason this franchise exists and that the multiplayer was a much larger focus area than the campaign. I understand that the multiplayer is technically an "add-on", I get it. What I don't get is how some can be so niave to think people don't buy this game exclusively for the multiplayer and whats even more wierd is they are written off because they have issues with the "free add on".
If they didn't make a campaign, then the series wouldn't continue. This game isn't like Battlefield where Multiplayer is the main reason why the game was made.
BO2 is a sequal to BO, and that game was a sequal to WAW, because of the story.
BTW I wasn't comparing, just supporting my arguement. Just because a new game comes out and it had multiplayer doesn't make it a "Multiplayer Game." Most companies just put multiplayer in games just to sell them to a specific audience. The multiplayer audience may be bigger than campaign's but what has more time and money into it, is the campaign.

It is still a minor part of the game. Campaign is the real reason why a COD game comes out every year.

Sorry if this gets qouted wierd, on my phone and haven't quite figured out how to qoute.
This is what I am disagreeing with regarding campaign and multiplayer and why people buy CoD.
The other thing I am disagreeing with is people being written off because they are having issues with multiplayer, which apparently isn't the reason CoD games are made. I get that 3Arch has no obligation to tweak the multiplayer and I understand the fine print but to say to insinuate that having an expectation of some measure of service for multiplayer is wrong, is asinine.
Activision made alot of money off of this franchise and I'm pretty sure it wasn't because of the awesome campaign.
Again he is not saying that people don't buy the game for multiplayer. He said the reason why the game was made was for single player. You wouldn't have Black Ops 2 without the continuation of the story from Black Ops 1.
The issue with the kind o fissues that you talking about (I'm assuming lag related) Is that they are so wide spread and so few that they can't just put out a quick fix because it could hurt more people then it could help.
