You deserve 50 lashing if you're purely going to play this game single player only. MP is where all the fun is.

QFT I doubt I'll even play the single player. Actually I probably will out of curiosity at some point.

You're a joke man. The games you listed aren't even the same genre as MW, except CoD1/2, which had the same size maps as MW. Hell several MW maps were remakes of COD1 maps. Can't believe you listed Battlefield games. Every post you've tried to establish yourself as some hardcore old school gamer but you've failed miserably every time. Just give it up.
You should probably stop posting insults because your making yourself seem immature. We call that sarcasm in the literary world (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarcasm). You haven't addressed any of the responses here with any intelligence, thus far. If you have a comment other than "Wow your a joke dude" please continue.

Just because you think the maps on MW were big and fun doesn't mean we all did, they were small, and I gave you a list of games that had bigger maps. Like you, said those were not "obscure" games, so I thought you may have played a few of them to see the map sizes.

It cant be worse than the SP in MOH. Worse SP in the last 5 years easily.

I'd feel bad for insulting you if every one of your posts didn't have the tone of some smug jerk looking down on everyone, so let's call it even.

Did I say that MW maps were "big and fun"? I'm pretty sure I didn't. I said the CoD:UO maps were too big for LAN parties with 4-8 people, and implied that the maps in MW were adequate for the gameplay. Battlefield and Call of Duty are two completely different games. The huge maps of Battlefield are well suited to its gameplay due to its heavy emphasis on vehicles. Call of Duty lacks vehicles (for the most part) and recent games in the series have limited the size of multiplayer matches so very large maps make no sense. I haven't played Rainbow Six or Rogue Spear in about 10 years so I don't really remember those maps, but I do remember that the gameplay isn't remotely comparable to Call of Duty multiplayer.

Seeing as though GOTY goes off public voting it makes common sense that black ops will be a contender.

Admittingly this game has a lot to live upto in terms of MP balance and gameplay compared to CoD4, but i only say that because i played promod competitivly. Hopefully the future mod tools promised by Treyarch can see that we have a nice balanced promod for black ops...The public ranked servers will be nothing more than a killstreak fest just like MW2...fun but not at all balanced....
Hey I'm not arguing that CoD isn't the most successful FPS franchise ever. Hell I broke down and pre-ordered Black Ops after just a nudge from some of my friends. Even if I only play it for a week they've got my money. I think I misunderstood what you meant about "contender".

After reading about Treyarch's plans for multiplayer on the PC platform as well as watching that 1-hour preview video, the game looks like MW2 without any of the bad parts. If so, it could really be a GOTY candidate.

This is why BF:2 was great, with the map sizes that varied dependent upon the number of players. The map size varies for the player size. So, at your LAN party with 4-8 players you have a smaller map suited for that many people. But, online when many servers have 36-64 players the small maps are much larger.
