Based on total quality, lasting impact, cultural influence and complete presentation.
As a callwork, the Call of Duty franchise has been a party of first person shooter with annual deductions for over decades. And every year, the debate about which games in the series has stood the test of time rages. So our in-office Call of Duty fans have once again collected their collective thoughts to decide which items deserve to be in the top 1
This list is not based on IGN ratings, but they have ] taken into account (check them all out in the slideshow below) along with total quality, lasting impact, cultural influence and complete presentation.
With this in mind, our choices are for the biggest Call of Duty games in all the time.
10. Call of Duty: WW2
While Call of Duty: WWII offered a surprisingly fast-paced and fun World War II experience, the boots of the old war situation did not respond to much as we would have liked. But with a host of engaging multiplayer modes, such as War and Prop Hunt, and a Zombies mode that returned to its scary horror roots, WW2 was a surprisingly solid offering. Although it fell a little more "been there, done it" since. -Mark Medina
9. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Advanced Warfare took Call of Duty into the future once again with a blocked history campaign centered around an advanced military technology company that gives soldiers increased mobility through Exo Suits. While the improved mobility introduced by these costumes was a welcome change in the campaign, the exo movements dramatically changed the form of player-versus-player multiplayer. This drastic shift met mixed reception, and the advanced movement suit was eventually removed in later entries in the series. -CJ Gibson
8. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
Perhaps more than any other Call of Duty, Black Ops 3 was not afraid to take risks. In multiplayer, Treyarch gave us road and specialist classes, which seemed the logical next step in the increasingly futuristic Black Ops franchise. Despite the clumsy new move, the new inclusion of class-like specialists gave us the opportunity to play how we wanted. With another dose of the now equally cool and difficult Zombies mode, Black Ops 3 really responded in the collaborative process. The opportunity to play with friends made up for an unforgettable campaign with Zombies based on a formula that continues to draw in the hordes of players. -Sydnee Goodman
7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Modern Warfare 3 continued to push the series in a familiar direction. The campaign wrapped in the history and multiplayer campaign doubled down on what the Call of Duty fans had come to expect. Although introducing new items such as weapon progression, skill and some other minor additions to the multiplayer package, Modern Warfare 3 put in its gun (100% calculated punctuation). But that's not to say to keep doing what the franchise did so well was necessarily a bad thing. -Sydnee Goodman
6. Call of Duty: World in War
The World of War returned again Call of Duty to the intersections and beaches of WWII, this time with a mature twist. The bold reimagination of the classic CoD formula laid the foundation of Treyarch's prevalence of what would be Black Ops, focusing on a 4-player cooperative campaign, like the I-trench warfare feeling, and of course the introduction of Zombies – an after-credit easter egg that created the phenomenon. -Nick Limon
5. Call of Duty 2
Few games have had a hard-hit campaign called Call of Duty 2. If you purchased a launch Xbox 360, this game was defined as the "next-gen". Of course, according to today's standard, its graphics are dated, but the excellent sound design and moment-to-moment game immerse us in World War II experience like nothing before. Thought that multiplayer modes were limited, Call of Duty 2 dabbled with elements that would help inform the future of the franchise's multiplayer experience. – Sean Finnegan
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Call of Duty Black Ops II introduced the Pick 10 system and Scorestreaks to multiplayer, which forms a depth and adaptation that has since become the multiplayer foundation for the franchise today. Not only did the campaign make its narrative stories, it set the scene for Bla ck Ops' shift to futuristic tech. But are also elevated zombies like the comic, but confusing juggernauten – or should I say juggernog – we know and love today. While technically a sequel to the original Black Ops, it gave us an innovation that felt healthy, continues to be memorable, and applies to the franchise. -Sydnee Goodman
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Blacks Ops was a three-headed monster that had something for everyone. If you wanted a great singleplayer shooter, this was your game. Multiplayer was strategic, its weapon felt wonderful to use, and Killstreaks was on a different level. Zombies came back to the series, and the game also introduced Two of the biggest charts in the Call of Duty story: Firing Range and Nuketown, the maps so popular they continue to come back as fan favorites in future Black Ops games. -Bobby Amos Jr.
2. Call of Space 4: Modern Warfare
Too many players, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare set a new standard for campaign design and multiplayer innovation, blowing them away, both figuratively and literally. It was a feeling that while everything in its multiplayer design was new, it was almost perfect. The weapons felt wonderful, the maps were varied and engaging, the now simple idea of 3, 5 and 7 locked killers rewarded you for excellence. The benefits and their flexibility allowed you to tailor your experience to your game style – and to this day this is no doubt the cleanest multiplayer and one of the best campaigns in the Call of Duty story. -Bobby Amos Jr.
1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Modern Warfare 2 is the top of the Call of Duty franchise. It expanded on the solid foundation built by its predecessor, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and set a new standard for triple-A first person shooter. With some of the most controversial and memorable promotional moments in the franchise, a brand new collaboration mode in Spec Ops, and a top tier suite card for player-to-player enthusiasts, Modern Warfare 2 kept us back for frag for many years!
Its adaptable Killstreaks and Progression Challenges were refined to perfection and remain a franchisee. Its visual faithfulness, musical score and core game were unsurpassed in 2009 and still rival today's shooters almost 10 years later. While the healthy argument about Modern Warfare or Modern Warfare 2 deserves the peak, it can never be completely resolved, Modern Warfare 2 was a truly groundbreaking first-person shooter. The reception strengthened the franchise as an entertainment stick and takes our top spot for the best Call of Duty game all the time. -CJ Gibson
