Call of Duty: A history in video

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009 - PC, 360, PS3)

This just came out, and we’ve been covering the shit out of it for the last month. Haven’t seen enough? Good! Then check out these spoiler-free videos of Infinity Ward’s crowning achievement, the almighty Modern Warfare 2.

Infinity Ward has managed to keep audiences engaged by evolving their WWII shooter to warfare of a more modern variety, while successfully bringing PC-flavored online play to legions of console gamers around the world. The launch of Modern Warfare 2 has pushed the franchise’s total sales to over $3 billion worldwide. But at what cost? Many feel that IW has abandoned their PC roots for a shameless console cash-in. Whatever your position on dedicated servers and console-to-PC porting, one thing is undeniable. In six short years Call of Duty has become a cultural force, swinging through the industry like a wrecking ball.

    Why nothing on Big Red One? That game still has me and my bros talking about it, and to this day, we *still* mourn the death of Brooklyn. A game with that kind of impact should be mentioned at least.

    Wow. You guys missed a shitload of games(4). Sorry, but I just happen to like CoD: United Offensive more than the others in the series. Yes more than the modern ones.

    Wow. I am still moved by some of these trailers (CoD3 and WaW just made me feel dead inside, but maybe that is just because I prefer IW to Treyarch). I laughed (no more luls for me until after Xmas) when I saw what you guys (GR) said about "CoD: Finest Hour", because it was the first CoD I played, and I still loved it (not as much as I do now. MW and MW2 FTW!) P.S. Sorry about what happened to all the PC gamers out there in MW2. Hopefully they will release some servers and things to mod later on, so that you guys can keep making the gaming world a better place (I have played at least 5 PC games: Unreal Tournament III, a great game in my opinion; Warcraft 3, which seemed a lot like tower defense to me; WoW, which was boring; Gears 1, although I just bought it at Circuit City right before they went under for the extra chapter; and Garry's Mod, which was one of the most fun things I have ever done (nothing says fun like attacking the G-man with a TF2 turret that keeps getting thrown around by a turbo car))

    Medal of Honor will never be able to get back its former glory. The last good MoH game was Frontline. CoD really needed the Modern Warfare facelift, I don't think it will do the same for MoH. I remember all of these, I was pretty disapointed with both of Treyarch's games though. WaW felt like a rip-off of CoD 4 in a WWII setting. I liked it, it just felt like they lacked innovation (except for zombies!!).

    @ctf2008, play nice now. The first Call of Duty was my favorite
  • FlyWire2 - December 5, 2009 6:40 p.m.

    Guys, you forgot CoD 2: Big Red One. It actually haves to get your squad to die bit to bit. Also the PS2 and Wii version of Cod 3 was different too...

    Oh Cwf2008, you ignorant child.

    Well My only problem with PC MW2 is mainly the multiplayer.
