* AcceptableTargets: The ''Call of Duty'' franchise as a whole has become this ''for the entire Internet'', now that [[{{Creator/Bungie}} the developers of]] [[{{Franchise/Halo}} that other franchise which everyone claimed was the cancer killing first person shooters]] have moved on. (And come back into public view, but the ''Halo'' hype seems to have started again.)

The ''Call of Duty'' franchise as a whole has become this ''for the entire Internet'', now that [[{{Creator/Bungie}} the developers of]] [[{{Franchise/Halo}} that other franchise which everyone claimed was the cancer killing first person shooters]] have moved on. (And come back into public view, but the ''Halo'' hype seems to have started again.)) This reached the point that footage from ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare'' wowed audiences at E3 2016... until the ''Call of Duty'' title came up on screen, silencing the cheers.

* SequelDisplacement: A vast majority of the fanbase have never played the original game, ''United Offensive'' or even ''Call of Duty 2'', largely because the current ''Call of Duty'' fanbase consists of Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers, and the early games were PC exclusives before being ported to consoles (with the exception of ''United Offensive'', which still has not seen a console release).

* BiasSteamroller: The franchise is a serial victim of this. Due to being one of the largest FPS franchise, it is often bashed by reviewers or random internet goers who simply did not like the first person shooter genre. Complaining about something inherent in the genre, like "All you do is shoot at things" is a very common criticism.

* SnarkBait: Due to its popularity, lots of people mock the ''Call of Duty'' franchise, particularly its [[RealIsBrown cinematic hyperrealism]] and how it appeals to the rowdy "dudebro" demographic as well as [[PeripheryDemographic pottymouthed kids and teens]] attracted by the violence. Related memes, such as Major League Gaming along with ProductPlacement for Doritos and Mountain Dew, are frequently mentioned and used when making fun of the series.

** Played with in the ''Modern Warfare'' series as making Russians and Arabs the villains is hardly controversial in American jingoistic narratives but much of the narrative is about how the entire war is a senseless waste of life.
** ''Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare'' has been accused of this with making the enemy be an evil PMC with an Anti-Christ themed Kevin Spacey as the villain.



* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: The people who say the ''Modern Warfare'' series glorifies war and xenophobia. It's kind of hard to state that when the first game, alone shows the horrible consequences of gung-ho military adventurism while has you teamed up with Russian Loyalists the entire time. It also seems to have even skipped a lot of ''player's'' attention that the American forces are coming to ''liberate'' the unnamed Middle Eastern country. [[UnusualEuphemism And not as euphemism either since.]]
