Why are all games with guns compared to CoD4 ?

My perfect example is Far Cry 2, a new release and one i have picked up and am enjoying as a free roaming adventure/shooter. Now Far Cry 2 has an online multiplayer but when the game developers were creating the game they were focusing on what the game is a single player game with an online mode bundled in o provide a platform to share and play the user created map content which they have been ranting on about in all their interviews.
I am interested in what other people have to say on this matter whether i am wrong or write but i am fed up with every shooting game being compared with CoD

If your going to get fed up every single time i suggest you go ask your doctor for some anti-anger pills right now.
Or a more simple solution is to get over it.

For singleplayer games, I think of Half-Life 2 with its gorgeous cinematics, good story, and solid gameplay.
For multiplayer and replay value, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect (my favorite FPS) comes to mind. It had co-op, tons of unlockables and extra content such as maps, character models, cheats, game modes, etc., a great map maker (for a console game), and so much customization; even the story mode was great, with a wide variety of environments, some fun sidekicks, and plenty of humor.
Sidenote: Because of TimeSplitters, I had been quite excited for Haze (both developed by Free Radical), and that didn't turn out so well, so I'm glad that they have decided to return to the TS2 engine for the 4th game in the TS series. At least, I think I heard they were....

I thought the comparison was to Halo, at least in terms of multiplayer on the console front. Single Player wise, it's Half Life.
A lot of people dug CoD4 more because of all the perks, leveling up and unlocking guns, challenges etc.
So I think people who dug that compare other online shooters to that system, as it made it a bit tough to play death matches that have no leveling system, nothing to unlock etc.
