With Black Ops 2 finally hitting our shelves yesterday, we’re all working our way through what it has to offer and giving our opinions; critical consensus is, as can be expected, mostly positive, even if Activison will no doubt be mincing over how its Metacritic score is a whole 3 points below Modern Warfare 3′s. Someone’s going to lose their bonus over that one…

And while the game is a lot of fun, and arguably the best, most innovative game of the lot, it’s time to see what can be improved for the inevitable Modern Warfare 4, which one can assume Infinity Ward are already hard at work on. Here’s 10 things we demand for the next game:

 

 

10. Server Filters

Having spent the majority of my time playing Nuketown 2025 on Black Ops 2 so far – as Treyarch have included a 24/7 server for the popular map – it makes it abundantly clear how wide the range in quality and popularity is between maps; some I could play for hours, and others I would be happy to never touch again. As such, having a server filter list, where we can sort by not only map name, but match type and so on would be a huge help. While it’s easy to appreciate the argument that this would just have everyone playing the same maps over and over, so what!? Give the fans what they want; Black Ops 2 gives the player a lot more choice, but how about opening that up entirely, so we can match-make exactly as we want? If I want to play a map all day long, I don’t expect the game to force me into something else, as the series has been doing for its entirety so far.

This stems from being a raised a PC FPS gamer, whereby this was always the case; moving to consoles for most online FPS games these days (as most of my friends play CoD on consoles), it’s a bit of a culture shock so to speak.
