In the Shadow of the Soldier: Call of Duty’s Greatest Past Competitors

Matt Randisi writes, "With Black Ops II in stores now, I couldn’t help but wonder of all the games I have to yet play before I even break the seal on my copy…not to mention the games that been spinning inside of my Xbox 360 for weeks now. Not that this year was full of must-play titles like Q4 of last year, but for me, the illustrious FPS series has fallen to bottom of the mountain as opposed to the summit where it once stood. I realize that I am a minority in this line of thinking, and that Call of Duty will continue to outsell every annual iteration of itself for years to come before the winds of change truly begin to blow. But the fact remains that Call Duty, the Wal-Mart of videogames, continues to boulder over the "small business" titles unfortunate enough to have shared the same release window." (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Dragon Age: Origins, Mirror's Edge, PS3, Rayman Origins, Saints Row: The Third, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Wii, Xbox 360)
