To quit, or not to quit? Black Ops II online match - played via Wii U GamePad Off-TV Play

Coffee Beans
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is currently my most played Wii U game, and has been for much of the past year. It will probably be my most played Wii U game for much of the entire time the console is out.

The majority of my time in Black Ops II has been playing online multiplayer, mainly Team Deathmatch battles. I never quit matches in Black Ops II (or other online games that I play) just because I'm losing. While I may occasionally have to ditch a game I'm in the middle of because I lose track of the time, it's never because I'm losing (or my team may be losing).

So, in a recent online match when my Kill/Death ratio was 1/11 at one point. Did I choose to quit, or not to quit? The video below is of that recent Black Ops II match I played on the Wii U, and despite getting off to a HORRIBLE start for my team (as you will see), I stuck with it and turned things around a bit:

If you're wondering about the title of the video, and this post, I played the match using the Wii U's GamePad Off-TV Play. And it's how I have spent the majority of my time playing Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

If you play online multiplayer games, like Black Ops II, do you find yourself sticking matches out (like Nick said he does as well earlier this year)? Or do you quit matches if it seems there is no hope?

Also as a side question, if you have picked up Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Wii U and were playing Black Ops II first, what do you think of Ghosts? Good? Bad? Better?

I get emails and questions about what I use to record and upload my videos, and you can see both the capture device and software I used for this video below:


  1. Hey, thanks for the link! It's funny - but I figured you stuck it out. I do too. The bonuses for sticking to it help make it not feel like a waste of time, even when you are getting decimated (plus, I'm really not ALL that good, so getting decimated is not that unusual for me).

    I haven't played Ghosts yet. Still waffling a bit. I know Target is offering a buy 2 get 1 free sale this week, so I plan to get a couple of PS4 titles. Just... not entirely sure which ones to get yet. Killzone looks awesome, so I'll get that. I was contemplating Knack, but the early returns have me a bit leery. NBA 2K, Lego Marvel and Ghosts all have appeal to me as well.
