yep, that's me . . . we did play a few games together in cod5 . . . not sure i can ever go back to that game, honestly . . . i'm trying to get him to pick up cod4 instead of battlefield bad company tonight but i don't think it's going to happen. maybe in the next week or two though . . .
i think this is probably another valid cod4 point - most of the people who are just now getting 360's, or picking the game up because it's finally dropping in price, are, understandably, scared to get on multiplayer . . . most anyone i see who's a lower, first-run rank plays like they're vets on a new gamertag or something.
i've got a few friends who have the game, but stick instead to halo 3 or whatever because the reputation of this game and the people who play it religiously make them think they are going to get destroyed - and this is probably true to a degree. sure, losing sucks - but when the options are either cartoony lasertag (halo 3) or back to the past part 57 (W@W) . . . i pick this every time.
i offer to walk them through some private matches if they're willing to give the big boys' game a shot, but then one public TDM match on wetwork or vacant and they're usually running out of there as fast as possible.
