'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare' Is the Forever War Game

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's release in 2007 largely defined big budget first person shooters for more than a decade. Whereas first-person shooters previously tended to focus on World War II's European fronts and sci-fi, Modern Warfare's massive success pushed games to start depicting wars the United States was and still is currently fighting.

I don’t know what to say to this besides thank you for writing it, it really puts some pieces together and contextualizes this game in a way that disturbs me.


Well this is a great review of the game. I am also a huge fan of the game and have always chosen to play that game over so many others.
The way it has depicted the wars in a subtle way highlighting what has been won and the wars that are still going is something CoD does brilliantly. I just want to check out the new CoD.
Thank you for sharing, can’t wait to play the game!
