Nielsen had a survey done with 1,200+ people aged between 7-54, and asked them what their most wanted game was for next-generation consoles. For the survey, Call of Duty: Ghosts came in at #1 on both Xbox One and PS4, but came in at #10 on the Wii U most wanted list.

  • Atleast Angry Birds isn’t there.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      God damn it, this is bullshit. That was definitely my number one!

        To whoever down voted my post: it was sarcasm, you geniuses.

  • DanDustEmOff

    Who would have thought BF4 would be beaten by Assassin’s Creed. Gotta question the sample group on that one.

    • fires

      specially, since how BF4 runs on current gen compared to next gen

    • Keshav Bhat

      I’m not surprised. Given the fact that BF4 is such a crashing mess on next-gen, not many would want that game.

      • I don’t have BF4 or a Next Gen, what are the problems?

        • TheShadowReaper

          crashing, freezing, stuttering and many more. these are also on the PC version of BF4. but even when the game plays its not anything special so whatever…

  • Juicyjuice

    This does not surprise me, they did ask 7 year olds -.-

  • PuddingAuxRais1ns

    I love CoD, but the fact that Ghosts is the most wanted next-gen game among other truly next-gen games is depressing.

    • CoDforever

      I’d agree if titanfall was on the list, but bf4 and every other game on the list is boring and bf4 specifically is more strategy than “fun”. People just want a game where they can come home from work, chill, relax and play with friends !

    • TheShadowReaper

      you’re such a hipster than i’m sure if BF4 was first on the list it would make you happy. totally hate you people. your brain is worse than hay.

      • Paul Thomas

        As Michael said, “Hipsters love saying they hate hipsters.”

        • TheShadowReaper

          said no one ever…

          • Paul Thomas

            Your comment really doesn’t make sense. My last post has a name and i’ll even point you to the place where I got it from.

      • PuddingAuxRais1ns

        If BF4 was actually a finished game at launch then i would agree with your statement. Games like Uncharted, Halo, and Titanfall deserve the top spots IMO.

  • AcePhoenix007

    LOL 7

  • Guest

    If the sample group started younger than 7, I’m pretty sure Ghosts would be the most wanted on all the consoles. With the joke aside, even on Wii U I’m dead surprised a game like Just Dance is doing better than Mario Kart.

  • Jose Martin Gonzalez

    Not surprising. Even with all the shit people talk about COD, it´s still really beloved (in a way). COD is fun.

    • theTruth

      was fun, sometimes tells me next year wont be as popular.

      • MaRico Spikes

        Next year will be the reboot of Call of Duty with the NexGen consoles, they can really get in to the power of the system and push it, they didn’t with ghost cuz they didn’t want to be too far away from last gen because nex gen hasn’t made their mark yet

        • Sentrymann

          Let’s hope so.

        • Nick L. Tialavea

          Ghosts=Call of Duty 3? within rating btw.

          • Plok

            Cod 2 was the first current gen CoD title.

  • curi0us

    Not like there’s many choices for next-gen. This poll or whatever it was sucks.

  • Super_Deluxe

    Lol if it wasn’t for the kids and quickscoping teenagers, that game wouldn’t even make it to top 5. It would be better if 9v9 was the new standard for all playlists on the next gen consoles considering the size of the maps and significant increase in resources but I guess IW always has an excuse for everything.

  • TruthTeller

    Funny how BF4 is Number 4 on the list lol!

    • CoDforever

      Its boring

  • Archer

    What an appropriate screenshot I might add.

  • Archer

    Why isn’t Titanfall on this list?

    • Paul Thomas

      It just might not be that popular given that it’s a new IP.

      • James K

        Edit: Comment removed.

      • ADuckOnQuack

        So is uncharted and halo (xb1) which is actually further away than Titanfall.

  • Cell

    And I’m so sorry for this. CoD Ghosts is the WORST cod ever! BO2, BO1, MW3, MW2, MW, they were all fun but Ghosts is such a disgrace.

    • Ghosts is better than MW3…but that’s it.

      • AverageJoe

        Noooooooo chance, MW3 was addictive. Ghosts is not. Never before have i given up on a COD title this early.

    • Derrick Wingler

      Honestly, i used to dislike Treyarch COD’s and love IW, But with the ways Treyarch changed how they did things, BO2 was damn near perfect and now Ghosts is just….eh. Specifically looking at the COD games, Ghosts is like a 5/10. Its not really bad, it just isn’t all that fun compared to all the previous COD’s

      • hashtagfyou

        IW changed because they kicked the two main creators because i think they took too much power over the company, so after mw2 they were fired. So, mw3 and ghosts weren’t from the original iw. Frankly, they made a new company: Respawn Entertainment and they are working on a new game called titanfall. You must’ve heard of it and seen the gameplay. It comes out next year on pc and xbox one. But yeah, i totally agree with you.

        • Aldo

          Actually, following the dismissal of Vince Zampella and Adam West (2 of the 3 founders of Infinity Ward) more than 46 leading staff members walked out and went on to join Respawn Entertainment so it was almost the entire team that made CoD4 and MW2 (as well as the earlier versions).

          • DuckOnQuack

            Btw, these people that left iw after making cod4 and mw2 started developing a new game. This game was named Titanfall.

    • AverageJoe

      same for me, the instant deaths and campy gameplay is why! its just not a run and gun COD! if they patched the health and boosted the smg to make it more run and gun friendly people would soon love the game again!

      • George

        It isn’t an issue of health, because it actually takes longer to kill others than it should sometimes. It’s an issue of connection and netcode.

    • TheShadowReaper

      MW3 is the worst. period. go crawl back to your cave troll.

  • bsktballmsu1

    where the hell is forza. forza is better than star wars the video game

    • xSupaScopa

      Apparently people hate one of the most graphically impressive games that also has amazing gameplay. Shocking how people talk about amazing graphics on next gen then play CoD Ghosts. On next gen, ghosts doesnt look great.

  • RileyWolfimposter

    That awkward moment when you realize that Angry Birds: Star Wars and Just Dance is on the list but Titanfall isn’t.

    • Sam Brittenden

      That’s because those games are already out and titanfall isn’t

      • Mitch

        Uncharted (PS4) is also on the list, and it isn’t even close to being released, probably somewhere 2015. Same for Halo (XB1) which also isn’t out yet and quite far away (further than TitanFall).
        A lot of people will probably get it on X360 or PC. The PC version will probably be the better version, and why buy a $500 machine for an upgraded 360 version?

  • K.E.M

    Not surprised at all.
    CoD is simply the best

  • George

    Focusing on the Wii U portion of the list here, the surprising things to me are the fact that Donkey Kong is above Ghosts and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is below it.

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      For me it isnt suprising at all, the new donkey kong game looks really awsome, though call of duty is so overrated!

      • George

        I’m kinda disappointed with myself in the lack of first-party stuff I’ve gotten for my Wii U. The only first-party title I’ve gotten so far is Nintendo Land, and that’s just because it came with my system X3 and yet I’ve gotten both Call of Duties on the console so far X3

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          There are so many great first-party games. Here are some:
          Super mario 3D world( great game)
          Legend of zelda windwaker HD(its zelda)
          Pikmin 3 (beautiful game)
          New super mario bros U. There is also DLC to that game
          Sonic lost world (its an ok game)

          • George

            It’s not that I’m not interested in the first-party games, or that I think they won’t be good.

            I’m just more interested in the third-party stuff that’s been coming out, and every time I get the opportunity to get something another great-looking third-party title comes along.

  • PeLLi

    I’m not surprised. CoD may be the “same thing” every year but it succeeds in being consistent in its gameplay so you almost always know what you are getting.

    BF4 is lower because they keep trying to do new things (Levolution for example) and it doesn’t appeal simply because no-one knows if it will work/be any good. Oh and the fact that the original console versions of BF3 were 12v12 and very restricted.

    I have bought CoD almost every year at launch (except Ghosts because I am saving up for a PS4) due to this consistency, and I am sure I’m not the only one.

  • Misogynist

    Surprised KH3 isn’t higher up there

    • George

      I KNOW RIGHT???

  • Manx Mouse

    i can wait to see what zombies is gonna look like in next gen!
