** 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.

** ''United Offensive'' was the first game in the series with a SprintMeter; it was not until ''Call of Duty 4'' that it became ubiquitous in the series.

** ''United Offensive'' was the first game in the series with a SprintMeter; SprintMeter, though it was [[DamnYouMuscleMemory bound to a different key]] (Alt by default) and covered a much shorter distance before running out; it was not until ''Call of Duty 4'' that it became ubiquitous in the series.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The mere mentioning of Modern Warfare 2 on any gaming forum will bring the wrath of untold [[UsefulNotes/PCVsConsole PC fanboys.]]

* 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.

* HellIsThatNoise: "POTATO MASHER!! RUN!!" and its variants in other languages in ''Call of Duty 2''
** The clinking sound of grenades landing near you in general.

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

** ''Call of Duty'' is so infamous for evoking this trope that any franchise with massive mainstream success that ends up being disliked by hardcore fans of the medium is compared to it, such as ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' for anime and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' for Western animation.

* 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.

* 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).
