140 Characters: My History With Call of Duty


I wanted to do a write up of my history with the Call of Duty franchise, but I realized that I didn’t care too much about the franchise outside of a handful of games.

Thus, I decided to write little blurbs of each instalment in 140 characters or less. The platform denoted in the brackets is the platform I first played the game on.

Call of Duty (PC)
Oct. 29, 2003

An epic WWII FPS that conveyed the sense of war unlike any game before it. Replayed it many times & still one of my fav WWII shooters.

Call of Duty 2 (PC)
Oct. 25, 2005

I don’t remember this game. I recall enjoying it, but I don’t recall any of the missions at all. I remember the PPsh & its large clip though

Call of Duty 3 (X360)
Nov. 6, 2006

One of my first MP games for the X360. CTF and vehicles online were amusing for awhile. Forgettable SP with endless stream of enemies.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PS3)
Nov. 7, 2007

Amazing multiplayer that hooked me since the beta. A memorable SP that I enjoyed thoroughly. Still my favorite in the Modern Warfare era.

Call of Duty: World at War (PS3)
Nov. 11, 2008

Kiefer Sutherland voice over & rabid dogs as a killstreak reward were my highlights. Zombie mode was alright, I guess. The SP? No thank you.

Modern Warfare 2 (PS3)
Nov. 10, 2009

A messy SP campaign with a few highlights. Broken MP filled with noob tubes, chopper gunning & nukes. Memorable soundtrack though.

Call of Duty: Black Ops (PS3)
Nov. 9, 2010

Tell me about the numbers, Mason. I enjoyed the campaign. My favorite along with COD & COD4. The MP had solid ideas, but technically lacking
