Whether offering fast cars or loaded guns, these are our favorite games like the Grand Theft Auto series
A wild reimagining of the CoD formula that begins to rebuild the Modern Warfare series from the ground up. That astonihing "Clean House" mission still gives us shivers.
This wraps up the MW trilogy's bombastic story with some brilliant missions - the rolling sandstorm in Return To Sender is Modern Warfare at its chaotic best, balancing player agency with serious spectacle.
CoD's brilliant battle royale spin-off. It streamlines the loot system, adds an ingenious way to rejoin the fight in the Gulag, and slices through other battle royales with a dang tac knife.
The first time the series experimented with multiple endings. Carrying out Strike Force missions can drastically alter the direction of the story, making this one of the most intriguing CoD campaigns.
A bombastic, wonderfully silly sequel that manages to up the stakes of Call of Duty 4. Of course, it helps when your campaign blows up with freakin' White House. We doubt the new remake will be quite so deliciously daft.
Thanks to its superbly realized Vietnam action and awesome multiplayer modes, this is still the best Black Ops. The moral murkiness of its Cold War setting was perfect for CoD.
Did you expect Black Ops: Declassified? Of course this is the best CoD. With life-swallowing online shootouts, and one of the best single-player campaigns ever, this remains a towering achievement.
