Retro Reflection: Call of Duty - Awesome Games

Awesome Games | 'Today, the phrase ‘Call of Duty’ denotes a subculture. Like Super Mario Bros. or Halo, the franchise’s phenomenon has exceeded the limits of its industry and become synonymous with a newer generation of young gamers. Someone says, ‘Call of Duty’, and you don’t think of the service and sacrifice the saying signifies; you think of freckled fifteen-year-olds in a multi-player mosh-pit massacre. But only a decade ago, before the monster that is Modern Warfare came to be, the series was grounded in a different sort of mentality. We’ll analyse the current craze of the latter C.o.D. era another day, but for now, let’s reflect on the battle’s beginnings.' (Call of Duty, GameCube, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Retro, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)
