Infinity Ward’s latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 trailer is… interesting. It does show some gameplay footage, but for the most part it’s a PSA to ‘Fight Against Grenade Spam’, or F.A.G.S. for short. Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels tells us random grenade throwing are, “for pussies”. It’s kind of strange he’s suddenly included in the PSA, but I believe it was to tie in with the World Series that’s currently underway.
With the amount of anticipation for Modern Warfare 2, I don’t think this was a smart move on the part of Infinity Ward. Yes, we all hate random grenades. If you think about it though, aren’t all grenades that kill you random to the one getting killed? You never expect them, but then when you hear it, you’re for the most part surprised.
What are your thoughts? You think this trailer was over-the-top, or do you think it’s just right for Modern Warfare 2?
