Trivia: Call of Duty
  • Banned in China: World at War was banned in Japan for "gory violence against Japanese soldiers". It should be noted that the ban was quickly lifted.
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Call of Duty games often use the quote "only the dead have seen the end of war," attributing it to Plato.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • Name's the Same: There are 3 important characters who shared the last name Petrenko in the series (Mikhail in COD1, Yuri in UO, and Dimitri). None of them are related to each other.
  • Streisand Effect: World at War became one of the most popular Xbox 360 games in Japan for a time, even though it was officially banned due to what typically happens to the Japanese soldiers in-game.
  • Technology Marches On: Just try installing Call of Duty 2 on a Vista system. If it's Vista 32, you can flip a coin to determine if it will work. If it's 64, you're more into "flip an oil tanker" territory.
