why is COD4 considered the best in series?

#1gamer6587Posted 11/10/2012 7:27:26 AM
was it bc the game was fresh for its time?

It's the best because it wasn't kill streaks focused and its maps were top notch plus the player count was smaller therefor less annoying players online, especially hardcore mode. I can go on but I'll just leave it at that.

It was fresh for its time and the killstreaks weren't so ridiculous like they are no. Every call of duty to come out like COD4 feels more like an expansion rather than a new game.

It focused on actual gunplay instead of a killstreak fest. Without all the killstreaks you have fewer of the killstreak campers which CoD is infested with nowadays.

because it was ground breaking. because the maps were great. because KSs werent a big deal so everyone did play like a puss. because it actually had things to climb. because trying to shoot a chopper down with an inaccurate rpg was cool. because QSing wasnt a big problem.

If they released a new version of COD4 (no glitches, hacks, 4 new maps) i'd buy it.

It was the first one people played. Like pretty much every other time people like the earlier things better.

In reality it's a broken mess online with ridiculous explosives, massively unbalanced perks and horrible linear maps that are only good for sniping and random explosives (and only ever played out with those dominating).

But it's the one that made CoD popular, that makes it good right?

Honestly people might give you a variety of reasons, but its simply the first one that they played.

It was ground breaking, it blew peoples minds, and they played it an insane amount. Thats why it is so beloved.

I prefer both BO and WaW, but there is no denying that cod 4 was the most significant release in the franchises history.
