Like that many actually cares about the story in CoD.
If you pay attention to many of the topics covering the game, most reference the story asking if it's before, during, or after MW series. This answers those questions: no.
But how many actually cares about the story in the ENTIRE COMMUNITY(which was my point)? Just because there are 50% story related topics(hypothetical , I just throw an random number as an example) on GameFAQs, that doesn't mean thats exactly how many who cares about the story in the whole community. And as I see it, Call of Duty's main sellingpoint is in fact the multiplayer, and most times when someone talks about CoD outside the Internet, it will most likely be the multiplayer.
Then obviously this topic wouldn't be aimed towards those who don't care. It's aimed at those arguing over what the game is about. --- PSN ID: Troll_Face_Flame (formerly armyflame) X360 gamertag: KGMR Flame Pre-ordered and anticipating: Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and Last of Us
