    Best CoD You've played

      I just thought I'd ask everyone their personal opinion what their best CoD game is personally for me WaW and Blops 1 are mine

        • Re: Best CoD You've played

          Call of Duty: Black Ops was in my opinion the unquestionable best game in the series.  It took all of the things that Call of Duty 4 and World at War did right, kept a significant number of killstreak options like MW2 without having the overpowered insanity of its killstreaks and was simply the most balanced COD to date.  Oh, and the campaign was excellent in my opinion, best of the series as well.

            Yup. Black ops 1. They should just remake it on wiiu with all the dlc on wii u. Fix the famas ak74u and aug and the 2nd chance invincibility glitch. And it's the perfect cod game

                  Made all the more perfect by the fact that the no-life, skill-less players won't be able to download any cheats to make themselves look good.  There is also the added bonus that these same worthless players won't be able to hop and ruin the accounts of the many people that destroy them, either.

                   

                  I like the sound of that.  One of the better things you've said yet.

                    You hacked your way through most of that year and ruined a lot of peoples game experience, not to mention wiping out two of my profiles by account hopping, just for beating you. Just stay away from the forums, you're not welcome, no one cares what you say, you boosted in Bo2, and probably do it in ghosts too..

                     

                    Btw, Bo1 was my best game..

                      For me it was MW3 which isn't a popular opinion here. Black Ops 1 and 2, I had severe connection/lag issues. Never had a lag issue in MW3 and it ran so smooth. I loved the weapons, maps (except Downturn) and the gameplay. Aside from hackers and FMG9 noobs, it is my favorite.

                          I loved MW3, but despite lag, Bo1 had the better maps. Just my opinion..

                          I like MW3 the most, BO2 is a close second. Akimbo FMG9 and the AA-12 shotgun ftw.

                            I want to say MWR since it was that game that got me playing CoD.  But when it comes down to it, it has to be BO1 for the same numerous reasons that others have stated, the most important being the netcode.

                              Beast Ops 1 followed closely by Black Ops 2. Two games for beasts, legends, and champions. Only CODs that take skill to play as well.

                                  Serious question - what is the difference in skill needed that sets BO series above the MW series?

                                    • Re: Best CoD You've played
                                      nintendon't

                                      For starters, BO has lower damage/higher recoil guns which means higher emphasis on gun skill instead of reaction time, higher streak requirements, no support/specialist/deathstreak handjobs, kills from computer streaks don't count as a kill towards your streak, "hidden" OP guns like the FAL/G11 for good players, better overall weapon/perk balance, ETC.

                                       

                                      There's more but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

                                          I agree with you. Problem is...all of those things aside, a game is nothing if I lag. MW2/MW3 no lag. BO1/BO2, lag. That's why I chose what I did.

                                              Its crazy, but with the lag shooting in reflex, lag in bo1 and hit and miss lag in MW3, my kdr was the exact same in all 3. A steady 1.56. But because of the lag in bo2 and ghosts being totally different, I can't even get anywhere near that, regardless of kill streaks or what ever. I guess no one will understand, but that's the reason I believe something is badly wrong with the new console and that's why I complain so much more than ever before..

                                                  My KDR in MW2 and MW3 was around 2.9. BO1 and BO2 was a 1.3. The reason I know it's lag is because it's super inconsistent. With the MW's, I was very consistent from match to match. BO2 was a disaster and the lag/wiimote was a cluster. With Ghosts it's inconsistent as hell. I seriously went from 28-0 on Prison Break to 2-18...same players/lobby...same map (because the map rotation sucks at times). Explain THAT to me. So right now, I pretty much don't give a sh!t about KDR - I just try to have more fun and do the objectives. I could be like some people who use the same gun on every map until the next COD comes out, which would obviously boost my KDR quite a bit. But then I'd be bored as hell.

                                                   

                                                  Here's how I look at KDR: if it can't get you laid or a raise at work...who the hell cares about it.

                                                  MW3 lagged for people too and MW2 gave a HUGE HUGE advantage to people with low ping. No such thing as a COD with perfect connection.

                                                      Oh definitely. I just don't like connection getting worse when everything else on my end got way better. And I know for you and I...we have polar opposite connection experiences with games. I just wish the matchmaking and lag comp was better for everyone so the playing field was more level (stop throwing me in with people in other countries!). Perhaps that won't get better until we have more people playing.

                                              W@W was my first, and I want to say my favourite, but I actually really enjoyed BO2. Dont get me wrong, I loved BO1, especially the Campaign and Zombies, but I felt like something was missing. Screw it, its a 3-way tie. W@W for the memories, BO1 for the Campaign and Zombies and BO2 for the Multiplayer

                                                  Tough call.   I'd say probably Black Ops 2 after all the hotfixes corrected the lag for me, but it's not a lock for first place.  That campaign was by far the best in my opinion.  The HD graphics were a plus as well but that's not a huge factor.  The MP was great, the balance was good, but there were SOOOOOO many headglitching spots for those target finders.  Also the controls were not the best we've seen on Nintendo consoles.  And when it did lag, like when I was in a party, it was terrible.  TDM scoring needed to be changed.  125 or 150.  I didn't care.  Either would have been an improvement. 

                                                   

                                                  Black Ops 1 would probably be up there if it didn't lag so bad for me.  And the framerate drops (regardless if it was because of hosting or just the game engine chugging) really got on my nerves.  I didn't think it was the most balanced game in the series either.  I did like it.  I probably should have gone back and played it more after I got a better internet connection.  It also wasn't as enjoyable because for some stupid reason, instead of buying headphones, I just played with the volume turned down so I didn't wake up my wife.  It wasn't bad, and if it didn't lag so bad then I probably would have liked it more, but hey, lag makes you hate things.  As I mentioned once on a podcast, if it didn't have lag, I would put it above MW3. 

                                                   

                                                  MW3 was great in my opinion.  The campaign was ok, but all the crazy cinematics and explosion at least made it fun and exciting to watch.  It was addictive in a way.  I liked playing it.

                                                   

                                                  Now for MP:  I bought headphones for this one and "Footsteps" was born (see what I did there Bobby?) I also upgraded my internet for this one....Other than akimbo the balance was fine in my opinion.  I never felt like I lost a gunfight because the other guy had a certain gun (unless it was akimbo...).  I did really well with everything I used.  I didn't try the LMGs much so I can't speak for them as I don't remember them well, but overall I thought the balance was fine (Type 95 needed a nerf, but hardly anyone used it. Maybe it got nerfed.  Maybe I changed my mind.  I remember thinking at one time that it was OP though).  It ran smooth.  The hit detection was great.  Take out all the hackers and it would have been a definite number one.  Hackers ruined it though.  The game was fine, but they ruined the experience.  I know some people didn't think it was balanced even without akimbo, and didn't like it for other reasons, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Good hit detection, steady framerate, and a lack of lag go a long way when it comes to making me happy with an FPS.  I don't know why, but specialist, lethal support streaks, and death streaks didn't bother me much.  Having your streak ended by dead man's head or that bomber really made some people rage.  I'm not sure why it doesn't bother me much, but not having lag makes everything easier to put up with so I guess that's it.

                                                   

                                                  Ghosts is growing on me.  I haven't had much of an urge to play the campaign.  It's just boring.  Seems like a huge step back after Black Ops 2.  They did so much with that game as far as innovation (well, in terms of COD it was innovative) in both the MP and the campaign.  in Ghosts you're back to running down narrow paths and shooting enemies that are just popping out from behind cover.  And still collecting items that are only there to make you run around looking for them and have no impact on the story.  I can't believe they went back to that crap.  It has some cool sequences but it's all for show.  Aim assist seems strong in the campaign as well.  So much so that I made sure I turned it off as it was far too easy to just ADS and shoot enemies.

                                                   

                                                  The MP in Ghosts is growing on me now that the lag is better.  It's real close to being up to par with Black Ops 2, can't touch MW3 yet, but overall it runs pretty good.  I can play about 10 matches before I get a laggy one.  I like the big maps.  I like that you have to play more strategically and be careful instead of just running around spraying with a lag shield.  I hate what few small maps there are for that reason.  I like that it takes more strategy.  The Wii remote controls are just great.  Amazing.  They only made 3 changes between this game and Blops 2, but those three changes made all the difference in the world.  Best wii remote controls so far.  Balance seems ok so far other than the fact that SMGs get outgunned by pretty much everything.  Or at least it feels that way.  Hit detection is great.  The framerate stutters, but not often or drastically enough to make me hate it.  Sovereign can be bad at times.  Overall though it's not terrible. 

                                                   

                                                  So which is the best?  I'm going to leave the campaign out of this ranking:  Two months ago I would have said Black Ops 2 with MW3 being a very close second.  Now, Ghosts is competing with those two.  Too early to tell if it's better.  It's definitely not bad.  As it is though Black Ops 2 is number one. 

                                                   

                                                  ....The above descriptions are just my opinion and/or my game experiences.

                                                      Black Ops 1 was the absolute best CoD game ever made. Ghosts is good, but the panic knifing and the camping are annoying. Black Ops 2? The Target Finder and the Quickscoping. Black Ops 1 had nothing that ruined the game, it was perfect...the killstreaks are strong, but not ridiculous like MW2's, and there was a good amount of them. No guns stood out as OP. Maps were perfect- even Jungle. Those were the good days...

                                                            I'm kind of torn on it. I liked MW/MWR and Black Ops 1, but Black Ops 2 also had some things i liked about it too. For regular gun on gun action i'd say MW/MWR wins. For sniping that goes to Black Ops Wii with Black Ops 2 following. For campaign, i'd probably go with Black Ops 1, followed by MW's campaign. Black Ops 2's falls in third. It's not that i didn't like it, but when up against Black Ops 1 and MW/MWR's it's a very difficult choice.

                                                             

                                                            I never played WaW's campaign completely. Actually, it was one of the games i bought for my PS3 when i got it. I still haven't finished the campaign on it yet though. I was 2-3 missions in before i stopped, since it was like 2am in the morning. After  i played the campaign i decided to go play online for a bit before bed and did so. Next thing i remember, i was screwing with a person who was driving a tank XD They kept on trying to run me over, but they couldn't, and before long another person joined in with another tank, so i was circling between and around 2 tanks while they were firing at me and trying to run me over. I managed to keep it up for a minute or so too

                                                             

                                                            Out of any Call of Duty moment, good and bad, that is probably the funnest moment i have ever had in any of the Call of Duty titles.

                                                                That game set the stage, it was innovative, simple, had the best maps, which is why they were included as bonus maps in other cod games. This one to this day was the best.

                                                                  Well I went back and played my favorites tonight.  Make the choice even harder.

                                                                   

                                                                  I think MW3 is my favorite.  The controls in that game are better than Black Ops 2.  It runs SOOOOO smooth.  I wish it was HD.  I got spoiled with HD the last two games.  Other than akimbo the weapon balance is fine to me.  No hackers tonight.  That was the only thing that ruined it.  Take away the hackers and I'd have to say it is my favorite due to the controls and the lack of lag.

                                                                   

                                                                  Black Ops 2.  Played that again.  The lag is MUCH better than Ghosts, but the controls just feel stupid now.  Really stupid.  Double turn speed plus ADS camera sensitivity make Ghosts have the best controls by far.

                                                                   

                                                                  Ghosts:  If it didn't lag so bad, it would probably be my favorite.  It's HD.  I like the big maps.  I don't like how they changed the pick 10 system.  The assault streaks kinda suck, but the controls are just amazing.  WAY better than Black Ops 2 and still better than MW3.  If they can take out the lag, it will probably be my favorite.

                                                                   

                                                                  As it is, after trying all 3 again, MW3 would have to be my favorite.  If you don't run into a hacker it's tons of fun.

                                                                   

                                                                  Edit:  30 frames per second is a little annoying after playing these HD games.  MW3 loses points for that.  Hmmm....It's hands down the best on the Wii.  Tough call, between it and black ops 2.  The controls in MW3 are definitely better.  Almost a tie on that one.  Oh and MW3 had over 1,000 people playing TDM.  At 4:00am.  Thought I would mention that.  Can't check the lobby leaderboard and the Lockdown (I think that's the map) glitch is still there where you constantly play that map.  I also like the surround sound in Black ops 2.  Tough call. 

                                                                  • Re: Best CoD You've played

                                                                    I reckon the most balanced game is ghosts. I am not saying it is the best game, but certainly gets it right with the perks and and attachments set up.I takes the create a class set up from BO2 and expands on it to make it what I believe is the best so far. I can't really think of any op weapons other than the msbs (the BS probably and acronym for a swear).

Scorestreaks were also great, I finally get rewarded for playing the objective and doing other small things instead of just killing. Also no lethal support streaks was nice. Lastly I felt the gun balance was pretty good, I was able to have great gameplay with everything but sniper rifles(they were broken with the wii remote).

                                                                        • Re: Best CoD You've played

                                                                          MW3 for me. I loved the close maps and the constant action. Made every second feel like something epic could happen at any time. I loved playing Team Defender. Wish they would bring that back. Just a great concept.

                                                                          • Re: Best CoD You've played

                                                                            BO1. the balance was perfect and the connectivity (outside of the host lag which Wii U no longer has) was perfect. MW3 was a close second for the connectivity, but not the weapons balance. If they could somehow take the connectivity from BO1 and place it into the present COD games, I think there would be a lot less complaining, and the game would be a lot more fun.
