* SacredCow: The original ''Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare''. It was commercially and critically successful, and left a massive impact on the franchise, if not shooters scene as a whole, to the point where some consider it to be one of the best games ever made.

* 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.

* SeasonalRot: Most long-time fans of the franchise agree that ''Modern Warfare 2'' is when the franchise starts to become increasingly glamorize and distance from the previous entries brutal depiction of warfare.

** VideoGame/ModernWarfare got the same treatment - see its page.

* 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 that's since come after it are terrible.

* FanNickname: Quite a few people who discovered the original, United Offensive and Call of Duty 2 [[SequelDisplacement after playing the next-gen games]] are now calling them "Call of Duty Classic". The first game was released with this title as a downloadable game after Modern Warfare 2's release.
** Black Ops is usually shortened to [=CoDBLOPS=].

* GrowingTheBeard: Combined with the whole Infinity Ward versus Activision stuff after ''Modern Warfare 2'', general sentiment following the release of ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' is that Treyarch has gone from the makers of "off" Call of Duty games to the new makers of "on" Call of Duty games.
** And many Infinity Ward fans jumped ship after ''Ghosts'' was judged to be SoOKItsAverage.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Many people largely ignore the campaign modes and buy the games strictly for the multiplayer.

** During the unveiling of the UsefulNotes/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''.

This one spread enough that even ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'', which came out three months before ''Ghosts'', had an achievement making fun of them for it.



* NintendoHard: The single player campaign for ''Finest Hour'' can be quite difficult. As the series had not yet switched to regenerating health, players had to find health kits and use them wisely. Also, your health bar itself was very small, meaning a few bursts of machine gun fire could take you out. Not to mention that now there was no GameplayAllyImmortality at any point - you had to conserve your health kits to give to your named allies. Checkpoints were few and far between, as well as many opportunities to get yourself killed between those sparse checkpoints. All this comes together to form a very challenging experience.

* 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!"'''
