Hey guys, this will be a thread I'm devoting to a bit of a developer battle. With Black Ops 2 on the way, and MW3 being a flop in our eyes, who do YOU think is the better developer. Infinity Ward ties in with Sledgehammer if you want to consider them as a whole, just saying.
Anyhow, I'd like to see some legitimate reasons as to why you think one developer is the better of the two.
Most of you know my opinion. I personally believe that Infinity Ward (even barring MW3) is the better developer. They started this series with CoD1 and have proved countless times that they were the more loved developer. CoD2 was simply awesome for it's time and CoD4 is what started what we have today, even tho what we have today isn't exactly what we want anymore. I give Infinity Ward major props for this because without them, we'd probably be stuck in the same era of the first three CoD's. Call of Duty 4 was simply amazing in both multiplayer and story. Throughout the Modern Warfare line, you were left with breath taking and struggling scenes which kept you more and more interested. Sure, I will say that CoD4's single player was the best of the three but the high strung moments like in the final mission where you're hunting down General Shepard in the boat and finally send him to his grave with one last throwing knife or the mission in MW3 where you unfortunately lose Soap, a character we've all loved since the beginning. I commend Infinity Ward and their side developers for making the single player partitions of the game, while I understand that COD has become more of a multiplayer game. While the story lines are short, they are good for the time you spend playing them.
As for why I dislike Treyarch, it really has to do with the flop that CoD3 was. I hated this CoD. I loved CoD2 and was hoping for another great CoD experience and I was let down. The single player let me down and the multiplayer was choppy and uninviting. My love for the series was re-established with the masterpiece I found in CoD4. I only got to play a little of World at War, so I couldn't exactly tell you what I think of that but when Black Ops came out I was honestly hoping for Treyarch to redeem themselves after COD3 for me, but, unfortunately, that just didn't happen. Black Ops was slow and clunky, the modes were nice but I found that the game moved overall slow. The currency system wasn't to my liking, nothing felt actually rewarding, and getting high kill streaks seemed easy with some of the clearly over powered guns. I do commend Treyarch for actually TALKING to their fanbase, which Infinity Ward clearly fails in.
Anyhow, I'm getting Black Ops 2 and hopefully this opinion may change. I may come to like Treyarch more but for the time being, I don't see it that way. :/

I only really played multiplayer on MW2 and I had a blast with that. As far as single goes, the MW series blew me away and its my most fav fps series. Just the feeling of running around the metropoli of Europe and US felt really epic, the gameplay feels amazing and simple, Ive always been looking for the same thing ever since, the missions were really clever with lots of fun elements to them and just overall I felt like the fight was real and even cared about the plot and got to like the characters.
Then I tried Black ops and... well I guess you cant go into a different devs game and expect the same, that was a mistake on my part. But still first impression I felt like the optimization was way worse than on the entire MW series. The mechanics were just a step down for me. Then I found out they just went from being a soldier and fighting in an epic war to some sort of movie like gameplay story of a person who was confused and brainwashed obviously from the start.. and I feel like the story was built up way more than it shouldve been over the actual gameplay.. I just didnt like that.
So for me Treyarch didnt come close to the fun I had with MW.

Hello guys and I think MW3 was the greatest game I ever played and believe it was most fun for me and I hope some people agree with me

Well I personally think treyarch is best because they have a better imagination. Just think about it, they where the ones who put zombies into the game. Now that cod ghosts is out with its new 'extinction' game mode, dont you think its because iw knew they where beaten by bo2 with zombies mode. I mean like, iw just brings out the same old special ops crap each time. Its time for somethimg new and pluses with cod advanced warfare coming out soon, we will be able to see who ends up with the upper hand with imagination.
Another reason why I think treyarch is better is because iw is a bunch of shit full stop. Ive played cod4 to cod ghosts and the way I hear it (especially from the fans) that in ways of movement, treyarch is better. I mean like its really distracting when running with you primary weapon out. The movement of the gun just makes my eyes go funny soo.....yeah. Although i'll agree iw killstreaks are good, I still think treyarch is better, especially with how the killstreak system works in bo2.
For me treyarch is better.

treyarch for me, guys. Even though it isn't that big of a deal, I find bopsII to be so much more aesthetically pleasing than ghosts.

Infinity Ward has a better legacy with The Modern Warfare series, but Treyarch seems to be taking the lead currently, with Ghosts not being that impressive.

Infinity ward. I played Black Ops 2, and I think it's one of the worst Call of Duty made thus far. The quick scopes, the lack of pro perks, the shoot first die first, funky camera angles. I mean, I could go on all day. I've been playing Ghosts, and I think is better in every way..

Treyarch is definitely superior.
Nov 6, 13 at 2:36pm
Treyarch all the way.

I strongly support IW over treyarch for one reason. IMHO you have to be talented to play talented on an IW game. Where treyarch gives the less advanced players perks and over powered guns in Dlc, to make them play better.
MW4 had great opportunities to snipe. Trey has essentially eliminated that element out of the game.
I meant the first MW.
Also, Trey's lag to show a teammate's green name tag happens all the time. If friendly fire only killed me instead of kicking me, that's fine, but in Bops2 I am getting sick of getting kicked out for shooting people when they were presented as an enemy. If Trey can't fix the glitches to prevent me from knowing who is on my team, they need to stop punishing the players. IW has more attention to detail when standing close to other objects (and a teammate comes into your field of view).
And how come Trey hasn't patched the swarm of bugs that glitch on the sound? It's been a problem since the game came out. I'm getting sick of having to reset the game because they won't fix it. I guess they already made the bulk of their money and it's not profitable at this point to spend more time on it.
