* 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.

** Can apply to the whole series since every and each installmenet has at least oen level that shows that WarIsHell. However, it's still tought of as "the FPS series that glorifies war".

** 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.]]

* CriticalDissonance: 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.
