Well Damn, The Internet Hates ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ As Much As It Hates Bieber

  The Internet, as we all know damn well, can be a terrible freaking place. Obi-Wan thought that Mos Eisley was a wretched hive of scum and villainy, but he’d never seen someone take issue with another’s opinion online. It doesn’t matter what. We could be on the Barney the Dinosaur official forums discussing favorite bedtime stories; there’d still be death threats and swears flying all over the darn place. 

There’s something about online anonymity. It turns even the most mild-mannered eighty-six-year-old great grandma into a raging asshole. So when gamers –a group so often stereotyped for their douchery—are upset, you can bet that they’ll make sure you know it.

What’s pissed them off lately? Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, that’s what. As we know, FPS games have far too much of a boner for the whole futuristic/spacetastic thing now. It’s getting a little difficult to tell one from the other. So when Infinite Warfare’s announcement dropped more of the same on us, it was the last straw. A tirade of petty bitching was unleashed.

We saw Activision’s response to the backlash last time, but the haters aren’t through yet. The plot thickens, and the YouTube dislikes continue to pour in. The new game’s reveal trailer was already the most disliked game trailer in the site’s history. Now it’s closing in on most disliked video ever on Youtube.

At time of writing, it’s in second place. The competition for that coveted top spot? The music video for Bieber’s most notorious slice of shite, Baby. I’m not sure which is the lesser of the two evils here. 

Like, baby, baby, baby, oh. 

Like, baby, baby, baby, no.
