Call of Duty has been around for a very long time. You may remember the first commercials of the original airing before movies, which was a big controversy back then. Not because it was a violent video game, but because the idea of commercials playing before movies was unheard of. The first installment would release in the fall of 2003, here we are 10 years later and what do you know the franchise has become one of the most played video games in the world. The franchise has spawned numerous titles, with a new entry coming out every November. Sit back and enjoy our top 10 Call of Duty games and if your favorite game doesn’t rank high enough, feel free to troll the comments below.
10. Call of Duty: Finest Hour
The first game to come to consoles at the time (PS2, GC, Xbox) was well a bumpy one to say the least. First off the save system and check points in the game were terrible, sometimes leaving you in the line of fire. The sound is too loud at times and with bland graphics/textures, it is obvious why Medal of Honor was king during this day and age. All complaints aside this game was only developed by 27 people and still managed to fare better than Call of Duty 3, Black Ops 2 Declassified or any other handheld Call of Duty game for that matter that didn’t make our list.
9. Call of Duty 2: Big Red One
The second entry on home gaming consoles in the early years of the new millennium. Big Red One was developed by Treyarch rather than Spark who developed number 10 on our list. Remember this is before the big ooohh’s and aahhh’s of today and the PS2, Xbox and GC was the best thing next to a computer with all the bells and whistles which had an intel 4 and 128 MB of RAM. In other words it is easy to see that this game barely tops Call of Duty: Finest Hour as it is more of the same. Ole’ fashioned running and gunning on the consoles of yesteryear.
8. World at War
Another title developed by Treyarch, after the horrendous outing of Call of Duty 3, this team would have to put in some work. Low and behold the team delivered in bringing the grit of WW2 alive with World at War or WAW as some gamers refer to it. The game adopts the same addictive multiplayer that was introduced in Modern Warfare and includes Kiefer Sutherland and Gary Oldman in the voice over cast. Another addition to the game was a new mode called Zombies. This new playable game type would give fans a new way to play in the game, by allowing 4 players to team up and take their stand against a Nazi Zombie horde. The mode would later become a staple in future Treyarch Call of Duty games.
