Gearbox Could Have Made a Call of Duty Title

You know what? It would have been great if they could've gotten Epic Games or something. I'd love to see Duty Calls 2

Going down the route of satire (or even cartoon) would be quite fitting for Call of Duty.

DrunkOnEstus:
Not to be a jerk, but serious question: What did they add to Duke Nukem Forever that was new and distinctive? I'm going to guess that that particular deal wasn't their fault. On another note, I forgot about Brothers in Arms, those were some fun games. Maybe not memorable seeing as I forgot, but I know I enjoyed my time with them.

They added existence to DNF, which was a pretty radical shift in development.

I'm glad they didn't work with Activision, we wouldn't have gotten Borderlands 2 otherwise. Plus trained chimps can churn out a dozen COD games in a year. It doesn't take much effort to change the number on the box art.

*checks to see what Gearbox has done in past 10 years*
*finds out that they've done nothing special*
*finds out they've done nothing on a technical level*
*finds out that they're mostly linear shooters*

They should have done it as this would've given them some money to actually do something.

Activision - Cod (it broke record sales *shrug*)
Blizzard - Starcraft and Wow
Bioware - ME1
Microsoft - Halo 1
CD Projeckt - witcher
Valve -HL
And so forth...

borderlands is their game the game is not linear

Okay, what so special about borderlands?

The game itself can be described as Cod mated with Wow in Looney Tunes.

More like Diablo meets Serious Sam. Anything resembling Call of Duty is that you use guns, and there is at least one military person on your team. That's about it.

And what's wrong with that? Seriously what's wrong with a game that takes a not so serious approach to the genre?
