Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
Call of Duty was first introduced in 2003 and became a staple of the FPS genre. Planting its roots in World War II, gamers learned more about history from Call of Duty than from history books. Throughout the years, CoD touched upon many aspects of warfare – from World War II to futuristic warfare.
Although CoD is criticized for using the same formula over and over, players keep coming back for more. It’s because CoD is easy to pick up and plays like a fast-paced Hollywood action movie. And that’s exactly what our gamer brain sometimes craves.
