Bob McKenzie, senior VP of marketing and merchandising over at GameStop, told Eurogamer that the pre-orders for Call of Duty: Black Ops “hit the largest number of reservations we’ve had on any release so far.” That’s right, the first Call of Duty since Activision basically lost the “good” Call of Duty developer, developed by the “not nearly as good” Call of Duty developer Treyarch, is the most pre-ordered video game of all time at the retail gaming giant.

I guess when it’s not being stolen, it’s breaking sales records.

I understand the arguably casual mass appeal that helps games like Call of Duty reach so many gamers, and there’s nothing wrong the games at all, but to be the most pre-ordered game of all time? There are better games out there than the yearly soldierandgun franchise, I promise. Really, though. I mean it. SorryI’ll stop now.
