Call of Duty is one of the most popular video game series of all time. Call of Duty started their career back in 2003 with a WWII game simply titled “Call of Duty”. The two games that followed also took place in the WWII era. However, fans started to get bored of old-fashioned warfare and began to ask for a more modern take on the series, thus leading to the next title called “Modern Warfare” which took place in the 1990’s. Since the release of “Modern Warfare” the series would soon begin to move further and further and further into the future. The first game to introduce a new type of movement system was “Advanced Warfare”. The new movement allowed for your soldier to double jump and dash in mid air. The next two games to follow adapted this movement and improved it in their own way.
As of November 4, 2016 the franchise introduced their newest title under the name of “Infinite Warfare”. “Infinite Warfare” will be the series’ fifteenth installment to Call of Duty franchise. The first trailer for “Infinite Warfare” was released on May 2, 2016. The trailer got up to 35 million views with 552,000 likes and a whopping 3 million dislikes. “Infinite Warfare” has become one of the most disliked videos on YouTube. This is due to the fact that Call of Duty players are sick of the futuristic movement and want to go back to the classic boots on the ground gameplay that the franchise is most respected for.
I personally do not enjoy “Infinite Warfare” whatsoever. I, like most fans, miss the classic boots on the ground gameplay that I was introduced to when I started playing the game.The franchise has gone too far into the future for my liking. I will admit that I did like the last two futuristic titles “ Black Ops 3” and “Advanced Warfare”. That is because when those games came out they were like a breath of fresh air. It was a nice change of pace. However, when Infinite Warfare was released the gameplay was very redundant compared to “Black Ops 3”. The movement is almost identical, and the only main difference between the games are the weapons. I felt like I was playing the same game that I played the previous year. The main reason I purchased the game was because it came with a remastered version “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”.
