COD: MW3 continues the winning streak that Activisionâ€™s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise is all so proud about. The game picks up straight after MW2 and puts us in the shoes of Frost, Yuri and the great Captain Price in a battle that will settle who makes history. Well, thatâ€™s for the campaign, which leads me to the reason why I picked this game as my game of the year: story-telling.
Everyoneâ€™s got their reason for picking-up a game but thereâ€™s always that title that regardless of how shitty or formulaic the gameplay is, you just want to finish that thing and see what happens. Everything else is a bonus. With MW3, I got to see the conclusion of a 3-part film that made the world see what modern FPS shooter should be all about.
Yeah, itâ€™s got its share of flaws and bad stuff but at the end of the day itâ€™s still one game one can pick up, pop some heads and have fun doing it. I wonâ€™t dabble on stuff like graphics since Iâ€™m a retro-fag and I still enjoy the good olâ€™ NES and PSX so graphics isnâ€™t a deciding factor for me. And thatâ€™s what gives more edge to the COD franchise seeing as some dude with a half-decent PC can play it straight up without bothering much with the video settings.
You can hate it all you want but when the world was all about Medal of Honor, Call of Duty was your Battlefield during those days.
