I continue to play Black Ops even though I constantly complain about some of the gameplay. I'm pretty sure it's because all of my PS3 buddies play it, and I'm kind of an online multiplayer junky so I usually play what my friends play, and for whatever reason, they keep playing this abortion.
I just got done playing a quick session and noticed that when you're doing really well and you have a really nice killstreak going, the game doesn't like that and needs to put a stop to it immediately. I had a 19 killstreak going, and noticed that enemies continued to respawn behind me, making it impossible to go on without dying. At first I thought I was paranoid, but it happened again and again after a bunch of kills. I never respawn behind enemies, and if I do, it's because I'm playing capture the flag, and the enemy is in my base.
Another thing I noticed was when the killstreak grows, your accuracy drops. I was running around and noticed a guy camping by his flag in HARDCORE capture the flag, AKA this guy should be dead in one shot. I stopped, took aim with the AUG, and Fired. Missed. The guy didn't notice I'm shooting at him. Took aim again, fired, nothing. The guy turns and starts shooting randomly, somehow hits me, I'm dead. I wanted to throw my controller through the TV.
I'm not one of those guys who is terrible and it's hard to watch me play. I can play FPS's. I've been playing this garbage for almost 2 months now and am noticing these little things that make this game so annoying. It's like Activision is trying to level the playing field for people who are new to games. I can understand the logic in that, but it shouldn't come at the cost of driving me insane.
