The Top Ten
1 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. It was released in 2009 as the sixth installment in the Call of Duty series and the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The game is set in a fictional near-future in which Russia has invaded the United States, and the player takes on the role of several different characters as they fight to stop the Russian invasion. Modern Warfare 2 features a single-player campaign, as well as multiplayer modes that allow players to compete against each other online. The game received critical acclaim upon its release for its intense gameplay, well-written storyline, and impressive graphics and sound design. It was a commercial success, breaking records for the most successful launch in entertainment history at the time of its release.

Modern Warfare 2 has that just-right type of feel. It doesn't push DLC and doesn't feel like a copy-and-paste job like modern Call of Duty games. However, it's new enough to have the best graphics and best updates (such as having multiple kill streaks). The campaign story might be weak, but the gameplay is the most exhilarating and intense in the series without trying to be over-the-top like most modern Call of Duty games. And the multiplayer is fantastic. All of the great modes are included with some of the best maps on the disc. Despite there being some hackers, this is without a doubt the best Call of Duty.

By far, the greatest Call of Duty of all time, right next to Call of Duty 4. If COD4 didn't hook me, this game certainly did. The campaign was flawless. When the plot twist took place, I was left in awe, which had never happened before. The multiplayer was balanced. You could do great with any gun. The feel of the game was amazing. I don't play Call of Duty for graphics. I play it for how intense it can get. You outsmart other players in a matter of seconds, win gunfights, and much more. I can see why people rate BO2 over this game, but we need to keep in mind that BO2 was made after MW2, and Treyarch had plenty of time to improve from previous CODs. For a game with the resources it had, MW2 was amazing.

This introduced me to the Call of Duty series, and I have to say, I was hooked! I remember cursing at campers and playing with my friends online, talking to other people. A great thing about this game is that there was actual TALKING! The community was phenomenal. It made you want to buy a headset to get in on conversations you hear. Hands down, this was number one. People were overpowered in some aspects, but hey, we learned to use them to our advantage and make this game even more fun. I might just go out and buy another copy...

This was Call of Duty at its peak, where not only was its game rating at the series' highest, but also the last game where both its story and gameplay were taken seriously. Black Ops 1 was a good follow-up, but afterward, it seemed as if all the other Call of Duty games just seemed to recycle the same gameplay, adding some tweaks and modifications that could barely amount to a brand-new game. But MW2 offered the biggest weapon roster and the most intense campaign, not to mention the beloved Spec Ops mode. This was a Call of Duty game worthy of its praise.

2 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. It was released in 2007 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game is set in a contemporary fictional world, where players assume the roles of soldiers from the United States and United Kingdom, fighting against Russian ultranationalists and Middle Eastern terrorists. The single-player campaign consists of various missions, while the multiplayer mode features a variety of game modes and maps. The game received critical acclaim for its cinematic graphics, immersive gameplay, and realistic depiction of modern warfare. It was a commercial success, selling over 16 million copies worldwide and spawning multiple sequels.

Call of Duty 4 is by far the best Call of Duty of all time. It was one of my first Call of Duties and I absolutely loved it. The campaign is full of suspense, unlike MW2. For a game that came out in 2007, it is truly amazing. There is not much difference in graphics between the new one and this one, so I think that Infinity Ward did an outstanding job. In multiplayer, there is not much weapon selection, so I guess the other games win in that aspect. This game is truly the best Call of Duty ever. It will always be my favorite!

They say war is hell. Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare takes you to the very depths of Hades. The long-awaited COD4, IW's follow-up to the excellent Call of Duty 2, is a jarring, intense, and gripping take on war in the new millennium. The enemies are smarter, the weapons are deadlier, and the grenades all too plentiful. COD4 will shake loose your fillings and have you begging for more.

Infinity Ward was born out of the success of retelling some of the greatest battles in World War II. The company has become synonymous with the virtual beach at Normandy. So it was quite a gamble to break from the comfort zone of Nazi-occupied Europe and leap into the present day. The gamble paid off. Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, and every other military-based shooter has been put on notice. There is a new standard to judge this sub-genre, and it is Call of Duty 4.

I feel as though the newer games had some really nice features, such as further weapon customization and more guns, that really could have improved gameplay if they were simply added to this game.

The maps and environments are vastly superior to those of the other games. They had a wide variety of small, medium, and large maps that allowed the purposeful use of all classes of guns. I find that the new games make it impossible to snipe effectively and most heavily favor the use of SMGs. I found that camping was harder as the player was easier to spot, even when motionless. The game also had a feeling of more realism that I find lacking in the other games.

I feel that the maps were so much more fun to play that if they simply added the new guns, and maybe the gun leveling system from MW3, this game would be hands down the best game, multiplayer-wise. If they relaunched a revamped version of this game with the same maps and environments, none of the other games would even ...more

This is the best game ever. Sure, it has hackers, but who cares about that when it has full-on awesome gameplay. The single-player campaign just keeps me wondering what's going to happen next, so I would stay up to play the next mission. The multiplayer is the best multiplayer out of all the Call of Duty games because, when it comes to playing multiplayer, you just have to keep leveling up. It will go like that for hours and hours until your mom comes in and shuts it off, or until you decide you've had enough (but we all know that's not going to happen). So if you want to have really good gameplay with some good graphics (but who cares about the graphics), then you should try to get a copy of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It will have you non-stop gaming because of the suspense in the missions and the wanting to level up in multiplayer. Have fun trying to stop playing this game because you won't be able to stop. This game is one of the best games for FPS. Now run along and try to ...more

3 Call of Duty: Black Ops Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter video game developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. It was released in 2010 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii consoles. The game is set during the Cold War and follows CIA operative Alex Mason as he attempts to recall his memories of a mission to assassinate a defector, while also uncovering a conspiracy by an unknown enemy known as "Perseus". The game features a variety of gameplay modes, including a single-player campaign, cooperative "Zombies" mode, and competitive multiplayer modes. Call of Duty: Black Ops received critical acclaim for its engaging storyline, polished gameplay, and multiplayer modes, and has been recognized as one of the best entries in the Call of Duty franchise.

It's better than its terrible sequel, that's for sure.

It was exciting at first, and I really love the '60s-based missions, but compared to World at War, it just fell short.

The plot wasn't too bad, but the 1960s were a very interesting time on their own. Just the whole Cuban missile crisis was a lot more interesting and stressful than Dragovich's deadly Nova Gas plot.

Also, there are quite a bit of historical inaccuracies. There are weapons that wouldn't be around for decades, and then there's the music. For example, Quimbara didn't come out until the '70s, and it was playing during the Bay of Pigs? That's like Gangnam Style or whatever popular pop song now playing in 1998.

Also, there are a lot of missed opportunities with the Vietnam War. Part of the reason I was so excited for this game was because after four WWII games and two Modern Warfares, there was finally going to be a Call of Duty set during the Vietnam War. Unfortunately, the campaign only had ...more

This was honestly the last good Call of Duty game ever released. Multiplayer was astounding. Zombies were unique. The maps were creative. The storyline was one of the best in the Call of Duty series. The weapons were really great, and I love the killstreaks, perks, and attachments. Any Call of Duty after this masterpiece went downhill.

Black Ops 2 had one of the worst storylines ever. It's just boring and stupid. The plot twists were predictable. Zombies had the most boring maps, and it's easy to get lost in them. The multiplayer sucked.

The new Call of Duty, Advanced Warfare, looks like a Titanfall ripoff. It just looks boring.

Unlike Modern Warfare 2, where if you join even 39 seconds late, you are already being constantly bombarded by killstreaks, and the multiplayer is truly awful, Black Ops has a fun multiplayer where you have a chance even if you aren't the first to join. You can join a game and completely turn the tides and enjoy the game.

Have you even read the comments for the "number one" game, MW2? They are completely ignorant and honestly idiotic. The number one comment points out a huge problem with the game and is still the "most loved" Call of Duty. The second comment also shows flaws in the game, with there being gaps in the game itself. The next one even admits that the game is unbalanced. Yet it is somehow still people's favorite Call of Duty, according to this survey. The best Call of Duty goes hands down to Black Ops. Sorry, Call of Duty 4. Unlike your younger brother, MW2, you do actually have some good gameplay. Black Ops just trumps you a bit.

The campaign for this game was nothing but a cinematic experience with great pacing and one of the series' biggest plot twists, which left me glued to my seat from beginning to end. The likable characters and the Vietnam War setting were great experiences that left me wanting more. The multiplayer was enjoyable and added many new additions to the long-running franchise, such as RCs, a new perk called Second Chance, and the first Call of Duty to include bots. Finally, Zombies. The zombies in this installment were honestly some of the best I've seen. Treyarch really experimented with these zombies, from putting them in a jungle to featuring cinematic legends and even setting them on the moon. This Call of Duty is one I won't soon or ever forget!

4 Call of Duty: World at War

I am surprised that this is not in the top 3 best Call of Duty games. I had never experienced such a serious, breathtaking WWII game. In the previous WWII Call of Duty games, I enjoyed the campaigns, but they all seemed bland and had a generic WWII theme. However, the campaign of World at War was like no other. The graphics were superior to any WWII-themed game I had ever played, and the spine-chilling music really exhibited the brutality and dark times during a horrid war. The enemy AI were generally smarter than in previous Call of Duty games, so the game wasn't exactly a cakewalk, and I do enjoy when enemies are a bit of a challenge. The voice acting was spectacular, and the inclusion of Nazi Zombies was just the icing on the cake.

This game has a realistic and emotional single-player experience with a reverence for the experiences of the soldiers in WWII. The multiplayer retains the enjoyable matches of the previous installments of the series, with the addition of a bayonet and the newly satisfying Nazi Zombies. The later games retained the multiplayer quality of World at War with varying weapons, perks, and kill streak perks. However, the later games fail to achieve the same level of innovation as World at War. The level of drama experienced in World at War in the single-player campaign is simply not felt in the later games. The later games feel less like a struggle for survival (which is what war is) and more like an interactive version of The Expendables.

This was one of the greatest Call of Duty games I've ever played for the past 11 years. It is still on my number one list. I liked how this game was the introduction to Zombies. Zombies were much scarier to play than the maps and styles in Black Ops and Black Ops II. The campaign was outstanding. There were Japanese soldiers who would snipe you from trees. You actually had to cooperate with your teammates in multiplayer, and the tanks in that one map were awesome. Lastly, cooperative mode made it more fun to explore a campaign map with your friends. This was probably the last great game Call of Duty made, and I hope they put Call of Duty back into the World War era because they are still missing some battles that weren't in the game!

The most thought-provoking, realistic, and original Call of Duty ever made. Everything about WaW works so well and is presented in a stunning visual manner. The un-glorification and realism (of the war that the game is based on) is incredible and makes the combat seem realistic and "entertaining." The campaign is the richest I've played so far. You really connect with the personalities of the other characters and the music score is brilliant. The multiplayer is beautifully balanced, and the weapons available are very well portrayed and all work so well. Zombies was a revolution that changed Call of Duty forever! #BackToTheGoodDays.

5 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

For me, it's the best COD to this day. The maps were just so much fun to play, and it was still simple without operators with their abilities and such. Zombies is without a doubt the best zombie experience without any competition in sight. While the fire cracks on the ground ruined Tranzit, the concept with the bus was amazing. And all the base zombie maps have an incredible atmosphere. The DLC maps took zombies to another level with the best and most fun zombie maps ever. They also have the perfect balance of features and content while still keeping the basic concept. Nowadays, zombies are overloaded with perks and attachments and all that.

One of the best campaigns of all the Call of Dutys with well-developed characters and one of the most evil villains in Call of Duty history. Not only that, but whatever you do in the campaign affects the ending. Zombies is better than ever with three different modes you can play. The multiplayer is one of the best too, because it requires you to play the objective to win the game. But what I really like about Black Ops 2 is that it is different from the other Call of Dutys. All the other Call of Dutys were usually rehashes of previous ones, but this one is much more different and more fun than most of the others.

This is the best Call of Duty. If not this, then it's Black Ops 1. This game has good graphics and a good story. The original Zombie maps were too small and not that great, apart from Tranzit, but the DLC maps are better than any zombie maps in the whole franchise. Mob of the Dead is the best zombie map out of all the games, and Origins is the second best, in my opinion. Moon is pretty good too in Black Ops 1 but not as good as these. The multiplayer had lots of game modes (as expected) and weapons (as expected). The weapons were easy to use, and the gameplay was amazing. The maps were also great, along with the party modes.

Easily the best Call of Duty campaign ever. An interesting plot, with an amazing villain for whom you could almost feel sympathy, offers multiple choices and endings. While most Call of Duty campaigns set in the future so far have been complete rubbish, Black Ops 2's setting of 2025 strikes a near-impossible parallel between the boots-on-the-ground warfare of the past and the believable technological advances of the near future. The multiplayer is also the best in the entire series, and the player count, even after all these years, proves this. While it might not have had any standout multiplayer maps, they were all varied and distinct from each other, and the pick-10 system was a great addition to the series. The only real weak point of this game was the zombies, which wasn't anything special unless you bought the majority of the paid DLC maps that came afterward, as the standalone maps weren't anything special. Despite this, Black Ops 2 does enough for me to justify its place as one ...more

6 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Great conclusion to the Modern Warfare story. Survival mode makes the game much larger and much more fun. All of the campaign missions are suspenseful and exciting. Spec Ops is way more improved than Modern Warfare 2's. The only thing I would fix is the main menu. Great maps, and all of the guns are excellent. Graphics aren't that different from Modern Warfare 2's but still really great. The thing I like the most is that on Spec Ops and survival mode, the enemy isn't too easy. Vast Call of Duty game.

An absolutely spectacular finish to the Modern Warfare story arc with plenty of amazing set pieces and a fast-paced, tense campaign. A buffed-up Spec Ops mode, which is an absolute joy to play with a mate online, lasts for hours whether it's global missions or survival mode. Lastly, multiplayer: hours and hours of fun with or without mates, which takes the best of the multiplayer and adds more, eliminating the worst of the multiplayer. The definitive title for any Call of Duty fan.

MW3 is by far the best Call of Duty game ever! I've played games from both the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series. This is the best, hands down. I'm level 80 in multiplayer and 50 in Special Ops as Delta Force. I also started a new profile with a multiplayer level of 32 and Special Ops level of 41 as xXx_Legend_xXx. Please note that I've beaten all campaigns on the veteran difficulty. I claim that the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series will remain the top champions in Call of Duty history!

I have bought almost all the Call of Duty games since they started coming out, and this one is still by far the best, even better than the newer Ghosts and Advanced Warfare. What I like about it is the survival mode. They haven't made a better one yet, and it is way better than zombies. My brother and I still get hours of fun out of survival mode. There are tons of cool levels and add-ons to download.

7 Call of Duty 2

This took me way longer to beat than Call of Duty. Twenty-two hours of awesomeness. The graphics were quite amazing back in 2005, but nowadays they are quite disappointing. Let me say that this game is my third favorite Call of Duty game. My favorite is Call of Duty 4. My second favorite is Call of Duty: Black Ops, and this is my third favorite. The campaign is one of the best shooter campaigns I have ever seen. It has about nine full missions, each one with three or four parts. The multiplayer back in the day was great, even better than the original Call of Duty's multiplayer. In 2016, this game's multiplayer is not very good at all, unless you enjoy shooting people who are moving side to side at point-blank range. If I had to rate this game on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a 7 in modern day. But back in the day when I bought it in 2006, I would have rated it a 10.

This is the Call of Duty that set the standard for every sequel made afterward. The campaign, though short, is crafted with enough detail to completely engross you in both the glory and the horror of war. The multiplayer, on the other hand, is fun and challenging. There are no level-ups or perks, but that's exactly what made it good. Here, you rely on your skills to actually win, not some random power-up you get after a lucky streak.

Definitely the best game in the series. It improved over the first game in many ways. The combat felt more polished and intense, and it felt like you were really fighting in the battles. The combat was perfect, the guns were great, the missions were all memorable, and the level design was fantastic. Call of Duty 2 is the greatest of all WWII shooters. None of the later Call of Duty games have matched the greatness of this one.

This game should have been number one or number two on this list. It can easily beat all the modern war games in the series. The storyline and gameplay are just absolutely great. This game also shows that British and Russian soldiers can be badass too. This is just my favorite first-person shooter in the world, and nothing can beat this game in my opinion.

8 Call of Duty 3

This game took me 18 hours to beat, and let me tell you, I had one heck of a time. Let me start off by saying that the graphics in this game are about four times better than the graphics in the original Call of Duty. The campaign is not very good, as Call of Duty campaigns go. The campaign is basically a copy of the original's campaign but with better graphics and more guns added. Not many people play the campaign, so I'll move on to the multiplayer aspects. The multiplayer is about as good as Call of Duty 2's multiplayer, except, of course, there are more guns! Everybody knows that more guns are better, so the multiplayer is pretty good! I enjoyed this game from beginning to end, and I will remember it as a good time-waster when I should have been working on my eighth-grade project for school. If I had to rate this game on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate it a 5. If I rated it on a scale of 1 to 10 back in the day, I would probably give it an 8.

First Call of Duty, and still my favorite. I loved the history behind the game, being WWII, but also the simplicity. There was no buying the game for online to level up and prestige. It was all about the campaign. It was a fairly long campaign, not the short stuff like today's Call of Duty. With a fairly long campaign, there was also a lot of focus and effort put into it, which made it worth your while.

The hours of fun I've had on the still-active online community are insane. This game was always underrated and should rank higher on the list. Also, it had vehicles. It's a great cheap game to pick up now because it's under $5 at some stores.

This is the only one I have right now, but I'm about to get Call of Duty BO2 and MW3. I love WW2. It's accurate and offers a great adventure with different countries! I love the last mission, but they do repeat the same phrases over and over again, like "Come on, men." Overall, it's good.

9 Call of Duty

The only good Call of Duty game, in my humble opinion. This is the pinnacle of Call of Duty. I personally like knowing that there will be a set number of enemies in a level. I liked how, when your teammates were killed, they were dead, not just some endless wave of useless men. I liked how you had health and didn't just need to sit behind cover for a couple of seconds. You had to think carefully before running through a firefight. No knife. Most people won't know this, but they had a thing called a rifle butt and a bayonet. Strangely enough, they wouldn't whip out a knife. They would beat someone down with the rifle butt or stab them with the bayonet at the end of their rifle. The only problem I have with this game is that it spawned so many offshoots that should have been aborted, not born and raised.

One last thing, ladies and gents. Call of Duty didn't revolutionize the lone-wolf, run-and-gun style gameplay that has become synonymous with Call of Duty. That would be ...more

I loved this game. It took me eight hours to beat. This was the start of a legendary shooter series. The graphics were mind-blowing back in 2003, but nowadays they are very bad. The campaign is good and has a few incredibly hard missions, even today. One mission I remember in particular is called Stalingrad. I know it's a historical event, and I guess I should be acknowledging that, but I'm talking about the mission in a game from 2003. Stalingrad took me two hours to beat, which is a fourth of what I spent beating the entire game. Multiplayer was a great experience back in 2003. Not many people play the original Call of Duty anymore, but when they did, it was amazing how you could get five kills within one minute while sniping people with a scoped Mosin Nagant. No guns were too overpowered, but they all felt like they were. This game holds an important place in people's lives.

This one is absolutely the best. You cannot compare it with the newer CoDs, which are set in the future. Those ones are boring and unfair. You just cannot die in them. This game was very different. You had to scavenge to find health packs instead of waiting in cover to regenerate health. In Veteran mode, there is no way to regenerate health. The graphics are bad now, but in that era, they were amazing. You only had a handful of weapons to choose from, and all the teams were balanced. If you were the sniper, you had to control the recoil and the sway of the scope. There was no Sniper Steadying. You needed to have skill for that. An expansion pack released in 2004 called United Offensive added a lot of new weapons, maps, ranks, etc., that made this game even better and improved multiplayer. I still play this game with the expansion pack and am happy to see a lot of people still playing this game and its expansion pack today.

I've played all the Call of Duty games for PC. This was the first and the most influential one. In second place comes either Call of Duty 2 or Call of Duty 4, as both have made great strides forward in gameplay. Call of Duty 2 set the game's fast action and movie-style single-player and multiplayer, while Call of Duty 4 improved on this concept with its innovative multiplayer. The other games don't really bring much improvement, mostly just well-sold gimmicks such as new killstreaks, perks, and modes, which aren't of great significance. Modern Warfare 2 was a game I had much fun with. The weapon design and characteristics were just fantastic - something they ruined in the games that followed. Multiplayer balance has really degraded with every title, which often doesn't get patched, and that's very sad to see. Also, I miss the faction-specific guns. Now you don't really care about whose side you're on in multiplayer.

10 Call of Duty: Black Ops III

This game redefines the Call of Duty games with the new travel system, which includes swimming, wall running, and jetpacks (Advanced Warfare has jetpacks). This is the turning point in the Call of Duty series. It went from a World War 2 shooter to science fiction. Now I must say, not all people will like this change. Most people will just miss the classics. They will always be "better" than the originals. In a way, they will be. The classics bring back memories and give you that feeling of happiness inside you. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try. If you don't like it, that's fine. Everyone has their own interests and opinions. This top 10 list is just a matter of opinion.

I don't get it. Black Ops 3 is amazing. It brought us the end to the amazing zombie story and led us to that point with four amazing DLC maps (even Zetsubou). The multiplayer is a fast but fun-moving shooter, with the addition of being able to choose and customize your wide variety of specialists. It brought us a load of new weapons and brought back the old nostalgia of weapons from previous games like Black Ops and Black Ops 2. The multiplayer maps are all very different. Instead of being too bright or too dark, it has maps like a closed water park to a dark cryogenic prison. The campaign gives us a deep look into the future and flashbacks to previous wars. Instead of the story ending with the war ending and your country winning, it gives a twist that no one was expecting. The game itself is a great game and deserves to be way up in the top 10s.

This game is very different from the others in a good way, with a new experience. Everything in Multiplayer, Campaign, and Zombies is great. This game is so well-balanced and fine. It's the closest to a perfect Call of Duty game I've ever seen in the many years of playing. If you could think of all the bad things that are possible in Multiplayer, there would be two things: spawns and lag/connection issues, but that rarely happens. This game deserves to be in the top ten. I would say at place #7 or #6.

I've been a fan of the Black Ops games since they came out. Black Ops 2 has been my favorite since I played it. Advanced Warfare was different, and I enjoyed aspects of it, but it also lacked many things. I feel like Black Ops 3 took the best elements from the Black Ops games and Advanced Warfare. BO3 is a great game all around. It has the toughest zombies ever, too. Multiplayer is great and fast-paced.

The Contenders
11 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

As a long-time fan of the franchise, I can only say that this one right here is the best game in the series. After getting used to the exo, which takes Call of Duty to a whole new level in terms of enjoyment, the game becomes much easier to get around, a lot faster, and a lot more fun. At least in my opinion, one of the reasons we play these games is that we like fast-paced games! We don't like waiting around or being patient. We want quick gameplay! And that's what this game provides for the community. Weapon variants, online multiplayer character customization, and supply drops are really cool additions to this franchise and just make the game more addicting, in my opinion. As much as I love the other Call of Duties, it was difficult to go back and play the other ones after I experienced Advanced Warfare, and honestly, I don't even want to go back. It's that fun of a game!

The best Call of Duty ever. The exo things take it to a whole new level and it works brilliantly, even though we weren't sure if it would work, but it does. The maps, campaign, options, modes, guns, and overall layout are 10/10. The graphics are incredible, even on Xbox 360! My favorite gun is the Atlas 20mm. It is huge, and I think they did really well making a completely new series set way in the future. It works great and is so much better than all the other Call of Duties!

Best Call of Duty ever. People who say this game sucks are just not good at it. This is the only Call of Duty I've enjoyed in a long time because of the flanks, variants, exos, and supply drops. It's really amazing because the multiplayer mode never gets boring, and that's because even when the campaign mode is over, you still have things to achieve in multiplayer, like elite variants, legendary variants, etc., especially the outfits. It's awesome when you get something good out of a supply drop and have an epic reaction. So that's all I have to say about this game, and yeah, Call of Duty is advancing. It can't go back! Soon everyone will be playing this when Black Ops 3 gets boring. Advanced Warfare 2 will be amazing. Peace.

I don't agree with where this is placed on the list. Advanced Warfare is the best. Don't judge me, but I don't think that the game was horribly put together. The exo suit has helped me a lot. What do you do if somebody's trying to shoot you? You can easily boost jump to avoid that. And Kevin Spacey as Jonathan Irons - I mean, Kevin Spacey! I thought he just did movies. So that's not really proving anything. It's just my opinion.

12 Call of Duty: Finest Hour

Rarely do you see or find anyone who played this game. It's a damn shame.

This game makes you cry every time you're in the main menu because of the music. Characters are amazingly done and the choice in music was superb!

If you haven't played this, then you cannot call yourself a veteran of the Call of Duty series.

This was one of the first Call of Duty games I played, and it's very underrated. This one had some of the best characters and level design of the series and is certainly one of the hardest. This is one I would recommend to anyone who's curious about the older titles.

This made Call of Duty a console game, with one of the best campaigns (including the best intro ever) and hands down my favorite multiplayer out of all of them (no aim-assist). Hardcore Call of Duty fans (and hardcore FPS fans) will agree.

With one of the best campaigns (including the best intro ever) and hands down my favorite multiplayer out of all of them (no aim-assist), hardcore Call of Duty fans (and hardcore FPS fans) will agree.

13 Call of Duty: Big Red One

This was my first video game. I have so many memories of it. From the times of piloting a tank to the first squad member dying. When it took you into the B-24, it took my breath away. It goes much more in-depth than the Call of Duty games of today, making you search for ammo and health at the most desperate of times.

By far the best. It had a meaningful campaign with interesting characters and scenarios. Plus, the multiplayer was fun. I easily logged close to 500 hours with this one.

This is among the most underrated games of all time. The missions were great, and the gameplay was improved over Finest Hour. Every Call of Duty/FPS fan has to play it at least once.

Brooklyn will always be the best Call of Duty character. Big Red One is the best Call of Duty game out there along with Finest Hour.

14 Call of Duty: WWII

This is the perfect spot for me to fight in a war. It is worth playing, and the graphics are the best during World War II, and it's only $60 per copy of it. You get to kill all the Nazis in story mode. D-Day is the start in the story mode of this game, and it happened in 1944. Also, my PC is a gaming computer and it can handle it. My computer is not a business computer, and even if I play video games on a business computer, then I'll get a BSOD and I would lag and get so many crashes. I rate this game 8.5/10, and I guess it's well made. I have seen some Mario enemies installing video games they want to play on their computer. Instead, they have installed them on their dad's computers and it got a BSOD.

This is such a great game, although it could have improved on the multiplayer aspect. Don't get me wrong. It had a great multiplayer, but I feel like if the developers spent more time making a few more maps and weapons in the base game (pushing back the release date, but that would be fine considering the quality would be boosted in terms of consumer happiness), this would have been a much better all-around game. I say all-around instead of just multiplayer because if guns were added, this could easily transfer to the game's campaign and zombies modes. I understand that Activision was looking for quality over quantity, I get that, but the Call of Duty franchise has been more of a quantity over quality thing in the past, so it seemed a bit awkward to have a change like this in my gaming experience. Hopefully, as time goes on, we can see a greater game with free DLC maps. Good game, not great.

It's the perfect combination of simplicity, skill, and history. I know it's not exactly an "original story" like some of the other Call of Duties, but for Activision to go back to good old boots-on-the-ground warfare is amazing. I just wish I could play as much as I used to before having kids. The campaign is fun and surprisingly different from your average WWII FPS. They do a good job of trying to make the player care about the other characters and feel for the joy and pain. The feel of the weapons is reminiscent of WaW as well, which was personally my favorite Call of Duty game.

WWII is an amazing game and I can't believe it wasn't ranked higher, smh. I play every day on Xbox with my sniping clan (TOGx Clan) and I have never had more fun with the game. They found a way to make an extremely serious game have some parts that are funny, without taking away from the realistic experience. I play it on an old Xbox One on my 1920x1080 monitor, and looking at the graphics of the game, it's unbelievable. I've honestly never seen more detail on all the maps and every part of the game.

15 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

This game is good. Blackout is the best battle royale. The multiplayer is also good, but the zombies mode is not the best. I think BO1 and BO2 had the best zombies.

Best Call of Duty and Black Ops game, although it should have a proper campaign.

Best Call of Duty ever. Gameplay and maps are so refined and definitely the best of the Black Ops series.

This game is a waste of my money, and where is the campaign?

16 Call of Duty: Ghosts

It's the best Call of Duty because it has a brand-new, definitive multiplayer and an exciting campaign. Not to mention the ending and the brand-new, real teamwork mode: Extinction. The DLCs have already been the best addition to Call of Duty Ghosts than any other. Now you have to buy everything instead of ranking up, which I like. In one map, you can be the legendary horror icon, Michael Myers, with an axe and just destroy your enemies, making them rage and maybe even rage quit out of the match. It's the best. Just take out the Ripper for season pass holders and make them wait like the rest of the Ghosts players, and everything is going to go smoothly.

If people actually got down to it and played Ghosts properly, they would realize just how good this game really is. The graphics are much better than every other Call of Duty, leaning is great, and Extinction mode is just amazing! The campaign is really fun, which is a relief after BO2's campaign, and most of all, the maps are actually really fun. The addition of Field Orders is amazing! But I don't think anything beats a good game on Strike Zone when you are losing, then you get a K.E.M. strike and suddenly find yourself winning by a mile.

I have been playing Call of Duty for years now, and I own all the Call of Duty games. This is my favorite. Want to know why? Because, other than CoD4, this is the only Call of Duty where the developers really tried to mix things up in the multiplayer.

Zombies is really fun and beats Extinction mode, even though Extinction is still fun. But in every other aspect, Call of Duty Ghosts is the superior Call of Duty.

Honestly, this game is underrated (and to the 4th grader: you are too young to play this game. Your parents need to take better care of you). The campaign was memorable, with every step giving me something to think about and feel emotions for. Multiplayer made me want to play, with a rank-up feeling like a technological leap and a prestige a triumph over all odds. The maps were fluid and fast, and the weapons were balanced to the point of perfection. And I commend Extinction. What a game mode! Its story is perfect. The strategy was here and there, but overall, it was great. The maps kept their variety but maintained the main point: destroying nests with a drill. The weapons in it gave one many choices on how they might want to play. I love this game and put it at my number 1 Call of Duty game. If you wish to hate on it, so be it, but I can point out a lot of problems with your favorites as well. If you take that as a challenge, then try it.

The campaign is one of the best I have played, with a compelling storyline. However, I do believe that its campaign is weaker than the Modern Warfare storyline, but I found that it was stronger than, say, Black Ops 1 & 2. The multiplayer is fast-paced most of the time and has a real sense of competition in it. But I feel as though it could be improved by taking notes from Modern Warfare's book. Extinction was never expected to be that good, as zombies set the benchmark. However, it actually felt quite fun. It can get chaotic, but it is best played with friends as you will need a strategy. This game overall is, in my opinion, the 3rd best Call of Duty of all time. But that's my opinion.

17 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

This game is absolutely nostalgic in every way. Everything is so memorable: the spawn nades, the bouncing in and out of head glitches, the one-bursting kills, the Juggernaut on my P90 silencer class, the Martyrdom and Last Stand that I didn't care for but many used, and the 3x frag and stuns. Everything is just so pure and simple that everyone loves it!

I can already tell you that this game will be amazing. I love remastered games so much, but I swear, if they add those supply drops, I don't know what I'm gonna do because adding them would be ruining the game. But I would still get it anyway, along with Infinite Warfare, because hey, Infinite Warfare is worth a try! Right?

Possibly the best remaster of all time, and such an amazing game to begin with. The additions improve the experience, and the graphics are amazing, even on lower settings on PC!

The original game is, in my opinion, the most fun game of them all. The original Call of Duty MW doesn't have the best graphics, so it is not super realistic, which is what makes it fun. But the Remastered Modern Warfare improves this slightly in every way, so it seems to be even better than the original. Modern Warfare for the win!

18 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Okay, let me explain why I favor this game. First of all, the multiplayer and zombies suck. The campaign, on the other hand, has got to be one of the best COD campaigns. I don't give a flying hoot if it takes place in 69,420. It's still an amazing campaign. It's fun, emotional, and the graphics are stunning. I think this game would've been very successful if it wasn't under the Call of Duty title. As a matter of fact, it would've had a sequel by now if it was its own series. Anyways, 8/10, better than Ghosts, and Godspeed.

I know this game isn't the best of the best. However, it shouldn't be considered the worst. People hate on this game because A) they see Battlefield going back into the past, B) they are bad at the game and don't like the exo jumping and wall running, or C) they hate the new idea of space and think it's just like Halo, Star Wars, and Destiny. Personally, at the beginning, I thought the whole space idea was stupid. I then played the beta after one of my friends gave me a code, and right after that, I instantly fell in love with the game. It just felt so good in my hands. To me, it was a game that played like any Infinity Ward game. It just had the same game mechanics as Advanced Warfare and BO3 and had some space maps. People shouldn't hate on a game that they have never played, such as the Battlefield fanboys. To conclude, many people said that the Call of Duty franchise has never changed since MW (prior to Advanced Warfare). There were many people who hated Ghosts (myself included). ...more

Definitely underrated. The bandwagon hate is what really killed it. The story was fantastic, zombies were fun, and the multiplayer could have been better, but it still ran smoothly. It's not the best, but it's far from the worst.

Infinite Warfare is not even a bad game. In fact, I enjoyed it. The multiplayer has some flaws, like the fact it added nothing new, but it's still a great game in my opinion.

19 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

One of my top favorites. The campaign is great, being a prequel to all of the Modern Warfare games. Multiplayer is very slow-paced and boring at times. Spec Ops: please nerf the difficulty.

It's a fantastic multiplayer offering for men, women, and children.

Why is Black Ops 4 ahead of this masterpiece?

Best CoD game yet.

20 Call of Duty: Classic
21 Call of Duty: World at War - Final Fronts

This game has what everyone loves about World at War, with some extras, so the lovers of the previous one will like to see more of it. It's a very good one to me, and I'm sure many others will agree!

World at War really gives you a great experience of not only the Call of Duty series but of life. Why, you ask? Well, because if you shoot someone in life, they will die. And if you ever want to press circle, you will crouch. So yeah... willy.

Although it didn't include zombies or even multiplayer, the campaign was amazing.

The starter of zombies. I love this game.

22 Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
23 Call of Duty 2: Big Red One
24 Call of Duty: Warzone
25 Call of Duty: Heroes

The game is on iOS and Android. It just came out and has all of the favorites from Modern Warfare and the Black Ops series.

It is by far the best game for the phone. Sad that they are getting rid of it.
