Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 was the last game in the glory years of the COD franchise, before things started to go downhill. But how good was it REALLY? Did the glory days end before Black Ops? Or is there some magic to be found in this game? Lets find out...

I loved how at all times you felt like you really were playing inside a conspiracy theory, it felt so serious, dark and real, the theme of secrecy and the feeling that you were on the inside of this stuff really sets it aside from other CoDs, even in multiplayer the maps were cool Soviet facilities and stuff and the theme fit perfectly, all the old tech that was probably the cutting edge back then made it cool as well and like you said, once you appreciate history and this era it makes the game even better. Also, the old CoDs will always be better, the new ones just aren’t the same with their money grubbing, skill based match making, copying other games like R6 and Fortnite and pandering to the try hard, pro gaming community, Black Ops 1 was the best CoD, but CoD back then in general was just better as well

Weird huh... I thought this was the point COD was going down hill. My reason? I couldn't quick scope anymore as in MW2. Looking back on it, this game was amazing... But kid me didn't like the change they made to quick scoping, still possible yes but MW2 was just the best!

I never forget the awesome voice cast they had in World at War. Black Ops throws an even better cast. After BO, Call of duty became worse by every year. I'm actually very optimistic about Cold War campaign. I hope it's even 50% as good as Black Ops'.

Its got a great art style that helps make this game still look great up to this day. I wasnt really that big of a fan of the modern warfare story. But black ops 1? That shit slaps real hard. Ghost and Soap are pretty cool, but i prefer Alex Mason and Frank Woods.

The even bigger balls are the fact there are several very controversial books that talk about how Russia was heavily invested in hypnotism after WW2 and all the messed up methods they used to do so. This is reference to this controversy which ofc his denied and hidden by governments but there is evidence and escapees stories about it, but they ofc are labeled as “Mentally Unstable”. All of this I discovered because of COD BO1 and the idea of a “programmed agent”. It’s really interesting and I encourage you to look into it. Wish they still had these balls today to many softies whining about anything slightly offense.

Shit doesn't scare me. I usually enjoy "nightmares" in fact, those dreams I can usually assume control of (so much fun but can be dangerous) the story of black ops gave me dreams that actually scared the shit out of me. The whole thing of reznov being dead... I had been obsessed with WAW so reznov was part of my mind, had memories with him.. Memories of battle.... Somehow connected me even more into the world and story.... Those dreams i had were truly fuckin scary and holy shit was it awesome!

Bro, you couldn’t be more wrong about the campaign. “It’s got some real people and a prison, you get immersed in it because it’s real history” Bro none of this game is real. You literally play as some dude who tried to kill Fidel Castro, shoots a harpoon at a helicopter, and swims from a super secret underwater base to meet some low flying jets and battleships blasting Lynyrd Skynyrd. It stole a scene straight from Deer Hunter.

I like how Black Ops is set in a lesser known conflict. It's usually overshadowed by WW2 and the Vietnam war. The fact that they made a game set in The Cold War is cool. Best of the series and will never be overtaken by any other game.
