Activision are just months away from releasing the latest addition to the Call of Duty gaming franchise, and yesterday evening they dropped the trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
It is known as the world’s best-selling video game franchise and fans across the globe are always anticipating the latest releases.
They first released Call of Duty in 2003 and their time at the top has spanned to their most recent release in 2021 with Call of Duty: Vanguard – this will, however, change with their upcoming game.
Evidently, having to rank the greatest Call of Duty game is a difficult task, especially when there is such a wide variety. Each game differs from the next with different weapons, wars and characters.
Fortunately for us, GamesRadar have attempted to rank the top 10 best Call of Duty games.
Just making it into the top 10 are two games of the Modern Warfare series, with Modern Warfare (2019) in 10th and Modern Warfare 3 in ninth.
Call of Duty 2, released in 2005, was the first Xbox 360 title to sell one million copies and was awarded the bestselling game of that year, so simply had to make the top 10, coming in at eighth.
Ranking one place higher in seventh place is World War 2. The game released before this was set in space, and as so this game has been described as a ‘great but flawed return to Call of Duty’s origins’.
Released in early 2020, Warzone took the world by storm and became very popular. However, this popularity has only earned it sixth place.
Two games from the Black Ops series are ranked fifth and fourth respectively. Arguably the two best from their category and so in their rightful places.
Just narrowly missing out on being crowned the greatest Call of Duty game ever is Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops. These games are absolute classics that fans will continue to play to this day.
Modern Warfare 2 is the highest Modern Warfare in the list as seen earlier. They were both almost flawless, but it’s the minor missteps which has led to another game topping the list.
Unsurprisingly, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Remastered) takes the top spot. Almost everyone remembers the release of this game, even if you never played it.
