I’ve played Call of Duty games since the original in 2003 and they have slowly evolved into something completely different. What used to be a shooter with an emphasis on skill has turned into a funhouse of bullets, airstrikes, and wall riding maniacs. It has transformed from a shooter of historical realism to a shooter of arcade-like science fiction. This year, Activision has said that they are “going back to [their] roots” with the series. What does this mean for the direction of the series and will this be the direction it desperately needs?
