A History of Call of Duty: Achievement, Progress, & Decline

Sean Halliday of Pixel Gate writes:

''Call of Duty is one of the more curious franchises in today’s videogame landscape. The series itself was the product of a stagnated and dried out series of games that left a number of developers frustrated and bored. When Call of Duty first hit the masses, its set pieces and intense action were met with praise and admiration. Even then it took heavy influences from popular TV and films, much like it continues to do now, but back then it was more than welcomed. But when did people become tired of the CoD staples? Did people really have enough of a good thing? Or are people just being too critical?'' (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Industry)

Online shooters with friends and strangers are fun. Back when I was a pc gamer it was quake and unreal tournament. They got stale to over time. Sure they are still hardcore players of those games (esp quake) but its hardly a mainstream audiance anymore. Let call of duty fade into the wind, unless something innovates its stale old formula its going the way of unreal
