Top 50 Games of the Last Generation | #1 - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Dealspwn writes: I laughed the first time I saw this. This is impossible, I muttered silently to myself. Out of all of the games of the last seven years, are we really going to hand the title of Game of the Generation over to Call of Duty? Something must have gone wrong. My maths has been going steadily downhill for years, I must have simply gone awry with the voting tallies.

It seems ludicrous that Call of Duty should come anywhere near the top of this list. But there it is -- the only game to have received a nomination from everyone here at Dealspwn. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

COD4 was such a leap forward, one we hadn't seen prior or since.

That is why it has so much impact on the genre.

I however, have become tired of the same old and have since moved on but COd4 was a great game.

Agreed.

The multiplayer aspect was horrendous but the single player was pretty awesome. Easily one of the best campaigns I've played.

I think we can all at least agree on CoD4 having made gaming cool and more commercially available to the masses. And I think a lot of people overlook that, but think of all the systems and games people bought because CoD brought them into video gaming.

So while I disapprove of what activision are doing and no longer enjoy the CoD series, I have nothing but respect for that infinity ward team that made CoD4, because they just got so much right in that game. And they laid the groundwork for possibly the most commercially successful video game franchise ever.

I can't tell you how many hours my friends and I played against each other split screen in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Free-for-all multiplayer is a blast.

You honestly can't be mad, Call of duty 4 was one of those games that set new standards for shooters.

One of the best online multiplayer last gen, played the shizz out of this game online. Well deserved no matter how many people hate to admit it. The SP campaign was also fun.
