It really has been a while since I played a Call of Duty game. While keeping up with them for a while, the relentless grind of an annual franchise ended up becoming detriment to my enjoyment of it. Which is rich coming from someone who plays as much Destiny as I do, the irony is not lost on me.
But it wasn’t just me that felt like they were getting burned out on the constant iteration of the franchise. It seemed like it was grating on the development teams too, given the gradual decay of the quality of the games over the years. This year though, for reasons compleatly beyond me, I decided to make my return to the franchise and see what it’d been up to in the eight years since I decided to walk away from it.
