I'm up for playing a casual, braindead FPS and haven't played CoD since MW2. I'm not sure if Battlefield is better nowadays or if there are alternatives on PS4? Currently I'm playing Overwatch which is okay I guess... shame about Middle Easterns sharing a server with Europeans though, really cheapens the feel.

Installed MW3... nothing but ragers.

NOOB! Camping Noob!

Some random comment on how bad you are. Me typing LOL everytime someone rages.

Won the match.

Makes me look tame.

Ah, that reminds me of hate I receive playing R6: Siege; my preferred playstyle is sitting in a toilet cubicle for a good five minutes, win or lose

I'd rather wait to see future Call Of Duty games on next gen platforms.

Well, we talk shit about it every year and every year it sells like gang-busters.

Like spitting at the sun at this point.

I’ve thought about getting Black Ops 4 but the lack of a single player campaign really bummed me out. The new Blackout mode looks very cool though. I’m just going to wait and get the new upcoming CoD which is looking like it’ll be Modern Warfare 4. Thankfully it’ll have a single player campaign in it.

Battlefield V should be your fix. Better than any Call of Duty ever been.

Eh. Just flip a coin. It's the same recycled shit every year, just with more microtransactions.

You won't miss out much either way.

Black Ops 4 underperformed according to Activision and Infinite Warfare was a huge flop.

Difference between COD: WWII and BF V is like night and day.

It's just unreal how much BF V can feel like an actual war going on with the big levels, tanks, planes and infantry all coming together.

In COD it's the same small maps, the same tactics, wether you are playing it in WWII or you are using jetpacks.

Play a game from a better series instead.

I wouldn't get hype over COD anymore. They so money hungry with this cosmetic loot box garbage. Avoid COD like the black plague. Honestly, do we really need another money grabbing COD? The last COD worth playing is WW2 in my opinion.

Such as? I've learned in recent years that you should always follow the crowd when it comes to online multiplayer games. There's no great obscure games anymore like previous gens and if there is then the games dead so who cares.

Rising Storm 2, Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V are all better war games than Call of Duty is. COD was good, but that was back in 2003 and nothing has really changed. Other series have progressed and improved.

I believe you said you are from Europe, so you can find servers in those games every day, every time.

I don't know that there are (m)any good FPS games in the past few years. I guess DOOM was pretty good and brainless. Maybe Hard Reset? Something like that. Rage 2 may be pretty OK. We used to get a LOT of FPS games but that flow seems to have slowed down significantly. I'm getting one of those Sinden light guns to play some arcade light gun games. (Got 30 or so. You know, Time Crisis, Point Blank, Virtua Cop, that sort of thing. Hmm... Maybe I should get a cheap paddle for Time Crisis.) That seems like a fun little thing to do. I know that's not traditional FPS but imo it's close. It's like a subgenre to me.

Of course there are light gun games in VR but it's... I dunno. I kind of like how you moved from scene to scene in the arcade ones and that doesn't typically happen in the VR ones. I would like to see a new light gun game designed like Super Hot, but without the slo-mo. So you do teleport/progress through a scene in a way but it's a classic arcade light gun game otherwise. That would be rad. (Actually I am looking into it now, and there are more light gun-esque games in VR than I thought there were. Cool! Drop Dead and New Retro Arcade's light gun cabinets look amazing. And I didn't know Gal*Gun is in VR either. Huh.)

In the long run I'm hoping for a new Tribes or a PlanetSide 3, or maybe something like a Ready Or Not game to revive the FPS genre. Inject a bit more vitality and creativity into it. Breaking the genre open a bit. Because it's getting stale to just have standard mediocre military shooters. ^Rising Storm 2 is pretty good though.

With new cloud-tech PlanetSide 3 could be way less resource intensive to support their 1,000-2,000 players on a map, and may even be able to scale up to say 10,000 players on a map. Combining the 3 maps into one big map with more biomes, and making side-activities like base building more interesting at the same time.

Wait till the new one. Zombies is amazing in blops4 but MP is sub-par for sure. No SP is disappointing too. It's not long to wait now anyway.

I mean if you like the Black Ops genre or Battle Royale you should get it. I don't like either so passed on BO4.

Get BLOPs 4. It's cheaper now, and it will still play just the same as next years COD.

Titanfall 2 is a better MP game than both the new COD/BF.

The only other MP shooters on ps4 I recommend, rainbow six siege and overwatch ( you been playing ow) not alot of options on PS4
