Top 5 Most Memorable Campaign Moments in Call of Duty

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Call of Duty, a franchise that has widely became considered as the benchmark of the FPS genre.

Call of Duty’s resounding success may stem from its high-octane thrills and spills in the form of multiplayer, however, we can’t forget the true core aspect of the franchise and the roots of its initial allure: the campaigns.

It’s here, within the aforementioned minority of gamers, that we see one of the most heated Call of Duty debates: What is the best Call of Duty campaign moment? (Call of Duty, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I have two favorite moments in Call of Duty campaigns. Without spoiling anything, the 'I Am Viktor Reznov' scene from the first Black Ops and that part in Modern Warfare 2 when Soap tackles the dude out of the second story window onto the car.

Call of Duty 2 and MW4 Pripyat
I really loved Pripyat.
I also like STALKER games.
Something special :D

Call of Duty had a campaign ?

I was most moved by the scene at the beginning of Modern Warfare where you experience the last moments of a US marines life after a nuke blast, but unfortunately throughout the rest of the series it became commonplace and less memorable.

You beat me to it, I was like wow, they killed off your character with a nuke!

Even though people will hate on COD, the campaigns, particularly were good, short, but action packed and solid. When compared to campaigns of other shooters like Battlefield 3 and both new Medal Of Honor games, you see it's harder than you'd think to put out a solid multiplayer game that includes a good campaign.

Yeah I can't say I have enjoyed the newer ones as much and the original Modern Warfare, but I finished them which is more than I can say for most games these days.

This is going to sound terrible, but I never owned and Xbox and at the time I didn't have a PS3 or a decent gaming PC, all I had was a Wii. But Infinity Ward Ported COD4 to the Wii and that was my first experience with COD.

That whole campaign blew me away though, even if it didn't look as pretty as the other versions.

I do still think the aiming was great in the Wii version though, being able to point is way more like a mouse than using a stick to aim, and I got pretty good at it actually.

COD4 had the best campaign of this generation cod titles.In MW2 Ghost death level was really the only level worth playing.

The rest of the cod titles are laughable of this gen.

COD4 is all you had to play. Everything that came after was pure trash.

Placing the flag at the end of World at war. That was cool

i played black ops 2 campaign, and i have to say the plot twist near the end left me jaw dropped.

For Me:
1) CoD4: All Ghillied Up (I'll NEVER forget this mission. F*cking brilliant!)
2) CoD4: Death From Above
3) CoD4: Shock and Awe & Aftermath
4) MW3: Killing Makarov
5) BO2: The end scene where Woods and Menendez play Carry On with Avenged Sevenfold

God, CoD4 was so awesome...

Honorable Mentions:
- MW3: Surfacing at New York and seeing the destruction
- BO2: The club scene and the music there ("Imma Try It Out")
- WaW: Planting the Russian Flag
- MW2: Death of Ghost and Roach
- MW3: Hijacking the plane; Turbulence

I agree with most of the moments listed. But the one burned in my brain the most is not blowing your cover in blops2. Harper or menendez? I maintained my cover. Finding price alive was a close second
