"So with the latest installment in this incredible series coming soon, it made sense to take a stroll through memory lane, and rank the Call of Duty series from best to worst."
If I had to rank my top 5 i'd go: 1)MW2 2)Cod 4 3)Black Ops 2 4)Advanced Warfare 5) Black Ops The majority of players pick COD 4 because of how innovative and ground breaking it was at the time but i think MW2 hold up superior. To me MW2 was modern warfare + basically refining and expanding on all the ideas of the original. The original MW may be more iconic but I prefer almost everything from a gameplay and mode perspective in MW2
Dam you put aw over any cod pre cod4 lol I'd do 1) cod 2 2) cod 3 3) big red one 4) cod 4 5) black ops 1
I agree, MW2 for me was the pinnacle of the CoD series that I was fully invested in. The rest have been fly bys at best. Even though I did enjoy Black Ops II a lot it doesn't compare to the many hours I put in on MW2. Definitely agree with your list.
yuk...dat list doe...nasty. 1.COD2 2.COD1 3.COD4 4.Black Ops 1 ...annnnnnd the rest trash. That series got bad FAST! lol They had a few good runs, from COD1, 2, and 4 and I feel thats sorta where that run ended only slight exception would be black ops 1, 3 was just trash, MW2 began the whole wild junk flying all over the place, MW3 continued it etc. I just want a remake or even HD remaster of COD4 and I would be fine. ie no dogs, not flying robots tanks doing somersaults, no AC130 etc. Just 3 kill radar, 5 kills strike, 7 kills helicopter. I'm legit just fine what that set up and NOTHING MORE. Got to the point where folks where not even playing the game, the damn perks and killstreaks were, ie get 1 kill and watching some landslide of animations happen with mechs, baby chimps flying in the air and junk..
COD 3 was the shat!
Right? I loved sniping people with my BAR
Advanced Warfare was and is still fantastic. Best CoD yet in my opinion... Black Ops 2 is a close 2nd, CoD4 is 3rd, original Black Ops is 4th, and WaW was 5th for my top 5. Bottom of the list include CoD3, MW2, and MW3
I see a lot of people disagree... And that's alright. Its just simply an opinion. No one has to agree with it if they have a different view. No sweat off my back :)
MW2 is the best. Had a great co-op too
Was a good list but it's missing COD2 for PC. That game would probably be in my top 2. I camped those sniper servers hard back in the day.
List was only games released on PS systems, that is why it wasn't on there.
MW2 COD4 Black Ops That's it.
Best to Worst: 1. MW2 2. MW 3. WaW 4. BO2 5. BO 6. MW3 7. Ghosts 8. AW
I would've put BLOPS 1 over BLOPS 2, but your list is dead on.
At it's core i agree BO is better than BO2, but BO had worse lag than BO2, which made it less enjoyable for me. So that's why i put it ahead.
Call of Duty 4 is still hands down the best Call of Duty. You could argue that CoD 2 is the best for the rawness of the game. MW2 is a close second or third depending how you look at it. Post-BO1 isn't even a consideration in my opinion.
COD 4 is a clear number one! MW2 was the game that killed COD for me, it started out great but just descended into crap as it got hacked to bits and overrun by 10yr olds. AW has been the first COD I've played since MW2 and I have to admit it is still pretty good. I probably won't by another though if I'm honest.
you like AW? wow, that game is by far the worst cod i have ever played for me the game is too fast paced for the size of the maps that it's usually just spawn kill after spawn kill. SO far from what i have played of Blops 3 it is a much better game than AW and ghosts as it is slower.
Tough list, but I loved Black Ops. Modern Warfare 2 is up there for me as well.
MW2 was good but come on it was no where near as good as CoD4... for me it's: CoD4 CoD2 MW2 WaW then i would say Blops 3 so far for me as it's much better then blops 1 and 2, AW and ghosts.
MW1 MW2 [email protected] BO COD2 BO2 AW . . . . . . . . . . . . . GHOSTS
My list: Cod 4- Best single player and multiplayer Cod waw- great co op campaign and zombies, great multiplayer Black ops- loved the cold war era single player and multi Mw2- great campaign, multi was good but ruined by cheaters Black ops 2- not a fan of future war but it was decent Mw3- Complete shit Ghost- Complete shit Advance warfare-better than Mw3 and ghost but still shit
Yeah this, COD4 and Black Ops were my favourite, I never played Ghosts and Advanced Warfare got boring quickly, Black Ops 3 is fun enough. MW3 Sucked sooo bad.
1. World at War 2. Modern Warfare 2 3. CoD 4: Modern Warfare 4. Modern Warfare 3 5. Black Ops 2 6. Black Ops 1 7. Ghosts 8. AW But after playing the BO3 Beta, I think it can crack the top 2 or 3.
never played COD4 so I'd have to go for MW2 MW3 could've been much better but it still was a good game Black ops was gr8 and felt different but u can easily tell by the gfx and the gun shots that the modern warfare series stomps it Advanced Warfare, only rented it. Never finished the campaign, hated the futuristic stuff, overall it was okay I either played the rest on PS2 or skipped them, thankfully I quit purchasing COD after MW3.
I think a lot of people jumped on CoD with MW2 so they think it's the best but nothing beats CoD 4 which is the second CoD I played. 1. CoD4mw 2. Black ops 3. [email protected] 4. MW2 broke as hell but fun 5.Blops 2 broken sniper fest but fun 6.CoD2 7.Cod 3 8. the rest are trash....
