Let's be honest all the call of duty campaigns at least kind of suck. most people just play the campaign to learn how to use the weapons before they jumped in the multiplayer.

COD 2 has my favourite campaign. Just the loading screen with the diary of the soldier you played is the feature I wish COD kept. The edited image of a renactor in gear who grows a beard or gets dirtier when selecting missions in one of the 3 campaigns it's honestly my favourite. From those you covered in your video I would have to say WAW,BO1,BO2, All of the MWs except the reboot, BO3, AW, WW2,Ghosts

Yeah but also in cod 2019, when there are enemies have you have to fake dead, you can also just use ur ak u picked up and just kill them all, this causes a trophy to be earned. (This also applied to cod gillie operation.

I fncking loved the Easter egg in I believe black ops 2 where your supposed to snipe a someone with a bag over their head but if you shoot their leg/ foot you get to see him alive. Having little moments like this would make me replay a game and take my actions differently to see what I could change in the world

Idk if this is an unpopular opinion or not, but Menendez was a more compelling and interesting villain in 1 game than Makarov managed to be in 2. IMO Menendez is the best villain, and one of the best characters for that matter, in CoD history.

i would argue that the homeland mission in mw:2019 was really powerful. it really puts the evil into the enemy, which always helps. it gives us something innocent, then forces us to watch as it is destroyed by cold heartless people. after that mission i was more invested in the campaign than i have been since after no russian in cod4.

I remember in black ops 2 when you have to chance to kill the “hooded menendez” I shot him right in the head out of pure anger and hatred for the character only to find out the it was mason under the hood which led my heart to sink. “What have I done”

Another thing I noticed in the cods post-BO2 have the main enemy faction with generic names with generic goals. Ghosts had the Federation, a South Americana facist military regiume. AW had the KVA, a global terrorist organization with bio-weapons. Bo3 had the NRC and CDP, a Coalition of countries. And all of their goals are never explained. No one knows why the Federation invaded the USA, or what the KVA's name stand for, and why are we fighting the coaltions in Bo3. I think the reason why the older and memorable Cods enemies are better is because it's either the Axis Powers, an agency of the enemy during a Cold War, or a militia with explained goals. We fought Menendez because he was a psycho who wanted revenge for his sister. Shepherd was a corrupt general who wanted to restore American imperialism. Jonathon Irons was a meglomaniac who thinks he can bring peace in the world by controlling it. But when you have someone like Taylor going rogue because he killed a character we never knew nor cared about, the German officer who killed American prisoners, or General Barkhov who is just a horrible person, we don't care about why we're gonna kill them nor are we going to be satisfied when we kill them because we're being forced to.

I don’t really get it why people hate call of duty infinite warfare. Yes, I get it, futuristic bullshit has been done to death, but in my opinion infinite warfare is still a fun game, and yes, lootboxes and mt’s ruin the game, but you dont need to open the mts to play the game, when you play it, there is salvage, wich you can use to buy blueprints, yes, blueprints having advantages is an absolute load of barnacles, the multiplayer is fun for me, the zombies is meh, the story I havent played and I dont think I will, but the multiplayer, like I said, can still be fun for me and it has content to keep it fun for me. And I dont blame the people for hating the game, with the mts, futuristic bullshit etc. I hope I was able to make a point and thanks for reading my comment! :)

What makes a campaign good/bad, the story, the game play, is it fun, the replay ability, and lastly its characters Also bo2 is awesome because, you can change the story, it actually feels like the date and time it placed you in, every moment felt important, lastly there was a fake out rock scene at the end

Honestly, AW was not forgettable. It was pretty good honestly, story was pretty damn good. I guess people just weren't fans of the mechanics of the game. Especially the "stomp" when you were exojumping. People really complained about that.

I was happy when I played modern warfare 2019, I hadn't played a cod game consistently and ENJOYED it since ghosts (yes I had fun with that game, but I'm referring to the multiplayer with ghosts) and BO2 which is by far my most favorite in all game modes. I partially enjoyed BO3 and I briefly played WW2 but I disliked the game and never played the other ones since then. The MW 2019 campaign was so good and cinematic and the characters didn't seem gineric and boring. It had some fun stealth missions, the sniping mission, and the other fun interesting mechanics like playing as a child trying to kill Russians or escorting someone via cameras. It was a beautiful and fun campaign.

I feel like No Russian was slow on purpose to show how Makarov sees the massacre. It shows how planned out the entire event was and the amount of patience Makarov has. Instead of freaking out or complaining about the FSB agents outside of the airport, he says in a calm voice, "they're right on time"

You may hate the franchise, you may be dissapointed again and again each year with the franchise but the fact that you are getting influenced by the franchise proves how good the franchise actually was or is that every move it makes gets so much attention... COD may not be the best game out there but it hell it is the one we always look forward to in the FPS genre.... Arguably more than BF...
