    Do I need to play the first 2023 Call of Duties or can I just jump right in? 🤔

      Nothing significant has changed since the original modern warfare. At this point they’re bringing back “classic” maps from like 4 years ago? They’re clutching at straws.

      Don’t get me wrong; it’s a fun game. It’s probably the best multiplayer shooter out there, but it’s wrapped up in many, many layers of turds and disappointment.

      • The launcher
        I hope the Microsoft acquisition means they do away with it and go back to a regular launcher.

      • The battlepass
        I wish games stopped treating me as a product and made games that were just fun, like Baldurs Gate 3 did. I shouldn’t have a battlepass that prioritises player engagement and forces me to be connected to the game season after season as if I’m on some sort of life support machine. Just let me unlock some cool skins and let me go and play some of the other games without feeling like I’m missing out.

      • Annual releases
        When Warzone came out, and they had their first iteration of the new kind of Call of Duty games (with battlepasses), I won’t lie, it was some of the most fun I’d had since the original Modern Warfare games. Why throw it away and abandon that game for another one that comes out a year later and just sucks? Yes, it makes them more money but it fragments the player base and forces you to abandon all the perks you’ve spent ages unlocking through the battlepass.

        Maybe on console, but if you’re on PC you should be playing Battlebit Remastered.

          It doesn’t scratch the same itch though. Battlebit is more for larger scale battles like Battlefield the game it was inspired from. Cod is significantly more arcadey, smaller scale and faster paced.

        This is such a great reply filled with disappointment. I did play MW2 quite a bit. DMZ was fun. My wife and I played MP a lot too. I bought her the battle pass one time and she was able to get it again multiple times just from the coins obtained from completing it.

        Thank you for such a well thought out reply!

      You certainly need to play COD MW4 2nd 2019 remaster gold edition to follow along with the lore /s
