So, a while ago I watched one of Jim Sterling's Jimquisitions where he was talking about CoD: Modern Warfare 3 and why he liked it, unlike the CoD games that came after it, and it actually got me curious about it, sure the game is "old" but it is still loved and played by many and it just so happened that there was a big sale on Steam so I got the whole MW3 package with the DLCs.
And you know what?
It is actually rather enjoyable.
Sure, the game's plot is over the top and such, but I actually find it surprisingly better then the shit that Michael Bay shits out almost every year, hell this game is packed with explosions but there's no constant slow motion whenever something explodes, only at key points and that's absolutely fine, and lets be fair here, the latest CoD game's story, Black Ops 3, got really REALLY weird quickly with all the insane stuff you see and experience later on and that's supposed to be sci-fi.
Plus the sound design is pretty damn good, even the SMGs sound vicious and powerful when you let them rip on the enemy troops in front of you and the music really sets the mood, especially during the intense moments when hordes of Russian troops descend upon you.
This isn't the first time I've had a change of heart about a game, in recent years I've actually opened up to the Manhunt and Postal games, two very violent franchises that I found, at the age I was at when they came out, to be too violent even for me as well as the Devil May Cry reboot DMC, although I will agree on that the Dante in the reboot is a complete unlikable prick without the charm of the original, but other then that I found that game too to be rather enjoyable if you looked past that issue.
Also, here's the Jimquisition video I mentioned:
