Hey Giantbomb, Whats your favorite call of duty?
MDub1 (because I can fucking say it that way). Dub2 was pretty good, but a lot of memories with that game are filled with quickscoping, noobtubing, annoying perks, and just a lot of generally fucked up shit that I feel is due more to the players exploiting mechanics rather than it being the developers' fault. There was a lot of shit players exploited in the first game too, but for a while it was the. bombest. shit. on. the. planet.
Never got REALLY into Cod4 multiplayer, but that single player campaign was very memorable and original.
I really did like MW2 as well, played much more of that multiplayer. Story was crazy, but to the point of being silly at times.! It's not as neat as Cod4. Also the MW2 multiplayer became super hacked later on.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare because it's the best one I can remember. One of the most enjoyable multiplayer experiences I've ever had. Yeah but M16 was broken and it only had one map pack but the vast majority of the maps were so fucking good and that game was just so fucking fun. I really wish that game wasn't hacked to hell on 360 or I would absolutely go back to it.
As much as I enjoyed MW1 & MW2, Black Ops is still my favorite in just how they did the framework for the story being able to just about go anywhere or any point in time for the last 40 years. Plus it also had a better zombie mode being the top down shooter as well as Zork being in there.
CoD 4, easily. World at War is brilliant too, at least in terms of multiplayer, and I'm one of the minority apparently who loved 3. Black Ops was fine, and I've got back into MW3 recently and it's not a bad game at all. There are a lot of Call of Duty games out there, but they're all pretty damn good. Except the DS ones.
United Offensive all the way. One of the finest Multiplayer games of all time imo. CoD 4 a close second for its stunning campaign though. Everything since then has stank of mediocrity, although I did enjoy WaW's mp a lot (for feeling like the old school CoD's,) aside from those goddamn dogs.
The fourth one. It had the best and most focused campaign, the tightest story, the most interesting set pieces, and all of that. I don't think I've seen a game since that balanced story and gameplay so well - each one was there to serve the other, which is how I think it should be.
