* GeniusBonus: The ''Dies Irae'' from Mozart's Requiem plays for a bit during the Soviet invasion of Berlin in "World at War". "Day of Wrath", indeed!



* SoBadItsGood: Listening to the non-American multiplayer announcers in ''World at War'' is ''hilarious''. Getting a 7-kill streak is even more rewarding when you get to listen to Sergeant Reznov yell out '''"Unleash the dogs!"'''

* It's also partly a side effect of the early New thousands when people were transitioning from the 90's. The amount of bullying kids faced in middle and high school from people who played the "Darker and Edgier" games that saturated the market left a bad impression in many kids.

* VideoGameMoviesSuck: An interesting example considering there isn't a movie based on the series. It's not that nobody is willing to have a go - plenty of studios have offered, and in fact the games themselves seem like movies due to the talent they bring in for the voice work - it's that Activision, [[GenreSavvy fully aware of this trope and its implications]], are worried about the negative effects a bad ''[=CoD=]''-based movie would have on the games.

* 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 having 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.]]

Y'know, just like real life.

** During the unveiling of the XboxOne, there was a presentation about the new graphics engine in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMYso30L9zI The "Advanced Fish AI"]] was quickly joked about because ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' did it in ''1996''.

* 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).

** 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.

** Can apply to the whole series since every and each installment has at least one level that shows that WarIsHell. However, it's still thought of as "the FPS series that glorifies war".
* CriticProof: Boy is it ever. The games sell ''very well'' on the market. However, given the way most people treat the game, you'd wonder where on earth these millions of ''Call of Duty'' players are coming from. Hell, even the actual playerbase spends a good quarter of their online playtime claiming either the game they're currently playing or every one of its sequels are terrible.
