Honestly, do we have to go into the Call of Duty bashing? I enjoy Call of Duty games alongside Mario games, and other games on numerous platforms. Do you honestly think everyone who plays those games is stupid.

How how does Call of Duty brainwash people. Do people honestly think a campaign that feels like a blockbuster action movie, a multiplayer that encourages run and gun gameplay, and extra modes like Zombies is a war simulator military game?

Call of Duty is no more of an army simulation game then Metal Gear is. Do you honestly think soldiers can call in nukes after getting 25 kills in a row, regenerate health by simply hiding behind a wall, and have a access to tricked out guns, equipment, and perks that enhance them in real life? Does anyone honestly think an average Call of Duty campaign, especially themore recent ones is an accurate look at how military operations work?

Call of Duty is to me a fun series, but its the video game equivalent of a GI Joe movie at times. An overblown, game that relies and flash and tons of cool stuff going on. Call of Duty is not a military simulator by any stretch of the imagination.

Yeah, maybe you could argue it gets people interested in the military. But the same could be said about Madden getting a kid intrested in being a Football Player or a WWE game making them think about getting into wrestling.

COD isn't 100% realistic because, lets face it, propaganda glorifies.
As for the debate at hand, just give him the time of day for his arguments and state yours. In addition, only play games you like, not just because of the crowd.

One of the things that turned me off of first person shooters in the first place, I miss the days when FPS games were more fantasy oriented and arcade-like, before they became the not so subtle tools of the NRA and military recruiters (get em while they're young, it worked for the tobacco industry).

Yea, no, I'm gonna call bull on this one. Call of Duty or any other military-based game is no more likely to "brainwash" you than any other game. Most of the time people join the military because it pays for a lot of things and helps you get going in life. I don;t want this to boil down into a military/NRA conspiracy debate, but I find the entire x piece of pop-culture causes y argument ridiculous. People don't like it when video games are blamed for violence so why is pulling the same bull against a particular part of the medium ok? I agree with you on the absence of arcade-style and fantasy based shooters though.

@Creative92
Most of those points won't win any arguments.

1.)The dedicated console argument falls short due to 'only' playing games. Those extra features aren't detrimental to the experience and actually makes the console more useful, not less.

2.)Most of those weren't entirely Nintendo's innovations, a lot of them were things they just pushed into mainstream use first. That same "crappy" controller has been good enough to stick with since the beginning, that speaks for its quality more than against it.

3.)A big selling point to video games is doing things you couldn't or wouldn't normally be able to, that applies to more realistic games as well. The entire point of a simulator is just that, to simulate an experience. Its not a strike against any platform to have those types of games, there are plenty of other games to choose from.

Most of your points aren't facts, so you can't exactly "fact check" anyone.

Yes because having differnces over something as trvial as games is a good idea.

How about joining more student groups or rush a frat. Your always going to have people that don't like Nintendo of video games in general.

Well if two people have strong opposing opinions in regard to video games, they will most likely have differences. The level of maturity in which you explore these differences will dictate to what degree you can overcome them.

While my post is mostly in jest, they don't sound like good friends if they tell him Wii U is not a game console to end the conversation. I would imagine this to be a pattern transcending games, but if Kyuubikid sees the value of interacting with them, more power to him.

@kyuubikid213 How about trying not to be so ridiculous it's a videogame console I don't think that's something to hate your friends over (or even argue about). If they're just a*******s in general, then you need to get some new friends.

This. I like to think playing video games is just one part of a friendship. But if they do this for other things, wouldn't want to deal with the hassle and find new friends.

I have the same problem except for with mobile gamers that play 'Clash of Clans'. Oh dear me, there is no reasoning with a moron who doesn't even know what a micro-transaction is despite exclusively playing games that are littered in the things.

Oh god, I haven't run into 'em yet but there isn't much worse than those who don't 'game' and don't get video games but do sit around and play Facebook games for hours on end. Funny world we live in where spending 4+ hours playing Farmville is seen as perfectly normal but spending an equal amount on 'real' games on 'real' console is a social taboo.

I have dealt with people that don't get gaming as a hobby and don't see value in the old games or hardware. Case in point, I have a relative who insisted I get rid of all my old games and consoles because their 'old' and "nobody buys them anymore". I didn't of course, and it was all spurred on by me moving and having stuff to, well, move. Imagine that.

I don't get why anyone would care so much, but my only solution, especially if these are to be friends, is to play games together. I mean shoot, how simple could it be...

Even The Big Bang Theory doesn't acknowledge the Wii U. In one of the latest episodes, Sheldon had to choose between the PS4 and the Xbone. The Wii U was left out as per usual. When polling the group on which console to get, Bernadette (the goofy girl with the baby voice) voted for the Wii (NOT the Wii U - it isn't even recognized). Ticked me off.

lol I know about that show, wish I didn't though. If you watch an episode carefully you see all sorts of product placements everywhere, if the Wii U wasn't mentioned I'm pretty confident it's because Nintendo didn't pay to have it mentioned like Sony and Microsoft no doubt paid to have their platforms plugged in a show I can only describe as "Friends for geeks". So I wouldn't worry too much about it, that Nintendo's products aren't seen in such trite mass market shows should be viewed as a good thing.

To be honest I'm not sure which modern overrated show annoys me more, Big Bang Theory or Game of Thrones, eh who cares I have several episodes of Vikings and From Dusk Till Dawn to watch. And yes I realize my above opinion is pretty biased, especially considering I thought how they had Jessica and especially Bill rocking the Wii in a few True Blood episodes was pretty cool (a vampire playing virtual golf on a virtual sunny day, that was genius).

Just do what everyone else does: never acknowledge the existence of the Wii U.

@DiscoStew The kids at my high school love Pokémon! Apart from that, very true.

It's here until Lz locks it, I believe.

Anyhow, people have their own "morons" to deal with and experiences to share.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.
I used to own a GBC, PS2, and DS Lite

Have you ever heard of a Playstation Girl's Club, or an Xbox Girl's Club, me neither.
I've lost count of how many times I've managed to strike up a conversation with a girl I liked by talking about their favorite 3ds games. The majority of women I've met who enjoy video games don't really care for the sort of ultra violent egocentric bro games common on Sony and Microsoft consoles, they enjoy the sort of lighthearted casual games that Nintendo offers, if you not only know about these games but enjoy them as well a lot of gamer chicks will find that to be a huge turn on because it shows that you've matured beyond all the gratuitous violence and ego stroking of the atypical 3rd party bro game.

tho i no longer count as a gaming girl, as a gaming woman i love the PS 3 as much as i do our nintendo stuff. there are some really good, non-violent games from sony. i get tired of the same old/same old arguement about FPSes and violence leveled at them.

not all females enjoy just what you refer to as 'lighthearted casual games' either. that does not equate with playing uber violent games. RPGs are big with myself and other women games i know.

we have had every ninty unit except the virtual boy and wii u. i have loved them all. my 3ds xl gives me sanity sometimes. but that doesn't mean i don't love me some ps 3 games as well. Ni No Kuni, Fez, Journey, some of the FF titles, Little Big Planet, Puppeteer...a lot of great games are available for the ps3.
