Yeah i'm in a similar situation i haven't really played many fps's since modern warfare but after playing black ops 2 at a friends place and having a lot of fun with it I'm considering buying ghost. The lack of innovation doesn't bother me since i haven't owned a COD game in years and I'm only interested in the multiplayer portion. I was considering battlefield 4 but i've never played a battlefield game and I'm worried about it's steeper learning curve. Most reviews seem to be okay with COD ghost but the user reviews worry me. Does the game have any major issues from previous games or are the user reviews exaggerating things and it's more or less the same as previous titles?
