Is COD: Modern Warfare 2 the best multiplayer game of all time?

With the amount of sales and the amount of people playing this online over 3 different platforms, would you say its the best mutliplayer game ever made?

My guess is the majority says no. In my opinion, it's the best, but that's just me.

a bazillion gajillion trabillion times no. no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

i honestly think the first mw is better. less focused on kill streaks. more recoil on the guns. more hp means camping and less effective noob toobs, etc. and the maps were WAY better. also the pc version was better. and if you want a truly great fps experience it's better to go with mouse and keyboard than a console game with auto aim.

A million times no.

QW, Q3, CS are likely the best FPS multiplayer games of all time, SC:BW the best RTS, Ultima Online, WoW are probably the best MMORPG.

Obviously Modern Warfare have a long distance to go before going head to head with behemoths in gaming like those.

That's like saying CSI or How I met your Mother is the best TV show of all time. Popularity does not necessarily equate to quality.

MW2 Advantages

Mainstream popular

MW2 Disadvantages

Too many kids
Lack of Vehicles
Too many perks

The knock on MW2 is that it is an arcade game, compared to more authentic simulators such as Battlefield Bad Company 2. Personally what prevents this from being the best game of all time is the company's absolute disrespect for the PC market, in addition to the lack of vehicles. Vehicles are a good thing.

I mean, the red slot is basically mandated to be Stopping Power. Where's the fun in that?

No where close.

Game is fun but is a joke mostly.

BFBC2 alone is better.

CS is way better then MW2 could hope to ever be. Like others have said MW2 isn't even as good as the original MW. I still play MW2 but only because most of my friends continue to play it and there isn't anything worth buying right now.

Counter-Strike is the best multiplayer game of all time. Especially for it's time.

No, not even close, not even in the same thought.

People who think MW2 is the best multiplayer game of all time are the same people that keep changing their minds once a new, shinier game comes out. It sounds like high school kids who see a new comedy and every one that just came out happened to be "the funniest movie ever."

Best all time is probably Quake 3 or Counter-Strike (even though CS was ruined when they came out with 1.4 and took out bunny hopping and changed the aiming!!! ) Maybe if you're still playing MW2 10 years from now, then you can consider it the best of all time. Hell, I still play Team Fortress Classic regularly and that game's older than CS.

edit - when I say best all time is Q3 or CS, I'm just talking about FPS games.

Counterstrike for PC

COD for consoles.


I unfortunately don't play Counterstrike anymore because my PC is going on 8 years old.

not even close.

its the most overrated for sure, tho.


the killstreaks ruined this game, imo. it reinforces camping and many of them are overpowered.


its not even the best in its own series.

COD4 is better. hell, i'd say World at War is probably better, too.

Easily better than cod.

Hell, RtCW was a better multiplayer game than most of the games being thrown around in here.

People are saying CS, but I would say Half Life in general. A lot of pretty popular mods (CS included) have come out of HL. Team Fortress, for instance.

I've heard good things of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. I'm gonna try it once I finish FFXIII.

Team Fortress is by FAR the best online multiplayer FPS. And I'm not talking about the new Orange Box piece of ****. I'm talking about the original that was out in the late 90s, early 2000. That game was AWESOME.

Something like 20v20 games, tons of maps (tons of custom maps by players which were just as awesome). Most of the time there was no strategy, it was just bum rush the other team as fast and hard as you can to get the flag. All strategy was usually left up to defense. I miss Team Fortress...

The best part was the custom maps. I remember someone made a Maze Map. Literally you were in a maze with secret passages and **** and you're just running around killing the other team if you ran into each other. At the center of the maze was a flag to capture or something.

Another custom map was a GIANT tree (no leaves or anything, but branches). Tons of guns and ammon on the other branches. The gravity was turned off so you could jump from branch to branch because the tree was huge. If you missed and fell to the bottom you'd die.

Someone made a Vietnam map which was really long, but badass cause it was forresty and the home bases had explosive defenses and tanks you could fire.

The best custom map was a challenge map. Everyone was on the same team, the point was to beat the 9 levels of the map. You can only be a Soldier (Rocket Launcher). You had to rocket jump through the 9 levels in different ways. The last level, you literally had to... toss a grenade against the wall, jump on it and shoot a rocket at the same time launching you into the air against the wall, shoot a rocket into the wall to push you into the middle of the arena and then drop another grenade midair right then to blow yourself up through a hole in the ceiling.

You don't get that type of **** in these new shoot games. Nothing creative, just basic team maps. Your base here, their base there.

New Team Fortress sucks...

Agree entirely. COD4 >> for the "new generation consoles" (and I'm just talking about FPS), Team Fortress/Counter-Strike for PC shooters, that's not even touching on WOW or Starcraft.

EDIT: It definitely had potential though.
