Why I hate Infinity Ward games
So I recently picked up Modern Warfare 1 & 2 off of Steam. I had played them on the Xbox 360 previously and wanted to play them again on my PC.
I haven't played even two hours before I am so fed up with the games I am ready to delete them. Somehow I forgot about the utter frustration that is Infinity Ward.
Basically it comes down to their stupid ass scripting system.
Picture this. I am on a rooftop supposed to be heading to an extraction point. I kill every enemy in sight. I then take one step forward and trigger some event and next thing I know there are 20 guys coming out of the woodwork.
For one it really pulls you out of the moment because if feels fake. The other thing is until I get to the next magical scripting point these guys just keep coming...Wave after wave of them. I could literally kill 500 guys but once I cross the "line" there isn't a baddie in sight.
It really sucks.
I know most people buy the games for multiplayer where this wouldn't be an issue at all but I don't play multiplayer. I crave the awesome single player experience.
I won't really delete them but I doubt I will play them ever again.
UPDATE (12/11/16): Can confirm I never played them again.
