Modern Warfare 2 Might Convince Me To Line Up For Something

by Ed Lau on November 9, 2009

If you’ve spent any amount of time with me, you’ll probably know that lining up is one of my biggest pet peeves. I hate waiting in line…for anything, regardless of what it is. Movies? I’ll watch it another day. Food? I’ll eat somewhere else. Maybe if they were giving away free money but until someone decides they’re crazy and doesn’t want their cash, I will still consider lining up to be just a massive waste of time. If modern society has taught us anything, it’s that instant gratification is the way to go.

That being said, I’m so excited about the next game from Infinity Ward, the makers of the Call of Duty series, that I might consider heading to the closest Best Buy tonight to pick up Modern Warfare 2, which may be in high demand at midnight. I’m a huge fan of the original as the single player is good enough to be a really great war movie and the multiplayer will keep you coming back for more for months. The info released over the last year or so has me convinced that the sequel will be the Empire Strikes Back of gaming, which is a feat in itself as most sequels are more along the lines of em>Matrix Reloaded.

If you’re not convinced, check these out.

Yes, there seems to be some controversy suggesting that there is a sequence in the game where you play terrorists rather than the good guys but to be honest, that probably makes me want to get it more. Way to push the envelope, Infinity Ward. Don’t be scared of the Fox News’ and Jack Thompsons of the world.

Oh, and I’ll be getting it for the Xbox so if anyone wants to play. I’m sure Leo and Stephen might be in as well.

I wasn’t going to get it (PC) but I suddenly found a good chunk of change unaccounted for in the bank. After buying it, I worked out that the chunk of change happened to coincide with my food shopping for the rest of the month. Oops…

Those “stare down the barrels” type of first person shooters give me a bad case of motion sickness. I probably won’t be getting the game since I can’t play for longer than 10 minutes without wanting to puke.
