PlanetXbox360: "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare wasn’t the initial first-person military shooter to take place in the present. However, it was the first modern day military FPS to demand the attention of the gaming public. Sure, there were other popular military focused shooters on the market, but none sold like Call of Duty 4. Gamers flocked to the customizations, perks, game modes, maps, and 60 frames per second that Call of Duty’s entrance into present day would bring with it. The game was even making Halo 3 sweat on the Xbox Live activity charts, with the two games regularly switching between 1st and 2nd place.
When Modern Warfare 2 was announced, the gaming community’s excitement could have provided the power for third world countries. Infinity Ward released a game they believed to be an upgraded, polished, an overall improved Modern Warfare game.

To settle the argument once and for all, PlanetXbox360’s News Editor, Alex Osborn, will be taking on PlanetXbox360’s Head News Writer, Zach Pint. Alex will be arguing for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, while I (Zach) will defend the good name of Modern Warfare 2. Let the debate begin!"
