TF2 cannot compare to CoDs single player.


Too bad that's like comparing your mom to popcorn. ;D

I personally just finished Crysis right now.  The suit abilities are just enough to make it really fun, and if your computer can handle it, its the most visually spectacular game ever created, period.  Makes Bioshock look like an NES game.

Honestly I wasn't terribly impressed with Crysis. As a game it sucked, and the graphics weren't terribly impressive to me. But then again, I've been spoiled on graphically-immense games like UT3 and E2160.

TF2 as a package can't compare. The single player alone is light years ahead of any thing released in recent years, it's like a really good summer action flick. Also CoD MP>TF2

CoD is garbage. The AI is nothing short of idiotic, and that pretty much destroys the whole thing.

I don't really care about TF2 either.

What a waste of resources and manpower.

I would have liked to play Ghost but I hated the project because I knew this was going to happen just like the WarCraft Thrall game.

We could have had SC2 by now or another game.
I have seen the Desler.  I have tasted of his milk and honey.

Actually, the reason why ghost failed and why it wouldn't have effected sc2 in any case is one and the same. Blizzard kept outsourcing ghost to other stupid no-name companies who never got it right, which is why it underwent delay after delay. Then the next-gen consoles came out and Blizzard /facepalmed the whole thing.

Swinging Ape studios was awesome, they made Metal Arms which was one of the best games released last gen.

Except you never hear about it, so it couldn't have been so great?

Since all games that no one has heard of suck, right?

Hint: Xenosaga falls into this category.

Xenosaga isn't exactly unheard of.

Thus, you fail.

Again.

Obviously the company sucked if Blizzard of all people shafted their development.
