Back in the day, there was one World War II-themed first-person shooter that grabbed everyone’s attention. And that shooter was Electronic Arts’ Medal of Honor.
That franchise had a stronghold on the WWII FPS sub-genre for a good while...that is until Activision threw its own contender into the race. In 2003, development studio Infinity Ward released the very first entry in the legendary Call of Duty series. And the rest, as they say, is history. Years and years of countless sequels and spinoffs have built Call of Duty into a juggernaut franchise that has amassed millions (and possibly even billions!) of revenue on an annual basis. With so many series entries to speak off, we decided to take a look at all the mainline games and properly rank them according to their overall quality.
As we get closer and closer to the launch date for Call of Duty: Vanguard, we’re going to celebrate the series as a whole. So without further ado, let’s count down all the mainline series entries that you and your friends have probably played into the wee hours of the morning.
