What makes a Cod good iyo?

For me, it comes down to the maps and kill streaks. I can deal with a bit of connection issues, and I can deal with some OP weapons, but if a call of duty doesn't have good maps or fun kill streaks to use (think AC 130) than I simply do not enjoy it. I think the maps keep on getting worse with each new installment and that worries me. I have had enough of these 3 choke point bull crap maps and these new changing environment maps don't look that great in ghosts either.

Anyways what makes a cod good to you? Hit detection? Balance? Whatever it is I'd like to know what the rest of the community thinks

In this order.

Hit detection
Correct animations being shown and aligning properly
Variety of useable weapons
Interesting or unique weapons (Model-1887, Executioner, Ballistic Knife, Slug-KSG, PM-9)
Weapon balance.
Fun game modes.
Streaks (MW3, only assault streaks I liked we're predator and reaper, spawn protection was a joke)

I liked how MW3 had the flags for Domination, Triangulated. In here, they're linear. Kinda a failure in Dom to me.

It's got to have bots. It's got to have no extremely cheesy stuff (I'm looking at you Second Chance/Last Stand). Give me lots of variety and options. Ways to counter everything.

Hit detection and the level of fun presented. I don't much care if something is "overpowered" as long as it isn't dominant (which so far, the only thing I feel CoD had that'd fit this is OMA/Tubing and MLC).

Well, let's look at CoD4.

Simple perk system
3,5,7 killstreaks
Great map design
Fun game modes
Leveling system
Good hit detection
No major lag issues
No extreme bull s***
Everything had a counter
There isn't a god gun/perk/attachment (M16 RDS Stopping Power pushed it though)
Quickest matchmaking out of all CoDs
Weapons were all unique within their categories
