The Best Call of Duty Games

"In 10 years the Call of Duty franchise has taken us behind-enemy-lines in World War II, into space, and nearly everywhere in between. But which of the 10 mainline Call of Duty fizzled, and which best delivered on the series' promise of fun, fast-paced, cinematic FPS action? We put the heads of our resident Call of Duty experts together to find out. This is IGN's rankings of the 10 core Call of Duty titles, as chosen by their overall quality and current stature." (Call of Duty, Call of Duty Series, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4 and Call of Duty Black Ops. Rank them by yourself.

CoD Ghosts should not be higher than any of the Treyarch CoDs and it definitely is not better than the any legit CoD. I'd even replace it with Big Red One on the PS2. Ghosts is crap. Pure crap but since it's their rule for only the main CoDs..

10. Ghosts
9. MW3
8. CoD3
7. MW2
6. Black Ops 2
5. CoD
4. W@W
3. CoD 2
2. Black Ops
1. CoD4MW

Sheesh when you list them like that it shows how much Activision have milked that cash cow over the past few years.

Shame to see Call of Duty 3 so low. The campaign was certainly a few rungs down from 2, but I was hooked to that MP: went with a simplistic BF style with vehicles + classes, some pretty smart map designs that accommodated the variety of modes, War mp mode, and boost in max players in regards to consoles (that even later iterations haven't matched). Just a lot of goofy fun.

Well, the only multiplayer I've put any real amount of time into was WaW . . . so I would go with that one.
I liked the stories that went along with the Black Ops series though, truthfully.

I haven't played Cod 1-3, so for me the series started with CoD4, and it had the best multiplayer maps hands down and the campaign was fresh at the time, so it definitely takes the crown. MW2 is second best, though multiplayer worsened and maps weren't as good. MW3 is just trash, the worst CoD to me. Blops 1 was good but nothing special. Blops 2 was 3rd best multiplayer game in series to me, the maps were great. Now, Ghosts... I hated it at first, but it's growing on me with time, which is a good sign. Definitely much better than MW3 though. But in the end all these could've just been map packs for CoD4. Wait...

I say COD4 without a doubt,I enjoyed it enough to still feel fatigued or 'shot out' when trying to get interested in new entries in the series.
Too much of the same
