1. See overrated

2. A first-person shooter franchise by Activision that takes place during World War II, and later a fictional present day conflict. The most played franchise on Xbox Live, and best-selling video game franchise of all time, with eacch new release far outselling the previous incarnation.

Currently synonymous with milking franchises dry.
First made by Infinity Ward in 2003, Call of Duty is Activision's flagship franchise, and easily the most overrated game franchise of all time. It also slowly kills off innovation and creativity in video games.

Activision once came up with the "awesome" plan of releasing a new CoD every year. Or something that's at least called "new Call of Duty", as it is actually just an unfinished, buggy, and glorified DLC package pressed onto a disc and sold for $70 across all major platforms.

Call of Duty is mostly played by 12-year old idiots, Xbox 360 fanboys, and generally people who think that playing these games makes them cool. These groups of people also often refer to Call of Duty as "teh best game EVAR!", and other things that attempt but fail to equalize it with a revelation.
Person 1: Wanna play Call of Duty?

Person 2: FUCK YEAH!

Sane person: No! Call of Duty is an overrated piece of garbage that gets more recognition than it deserves!

FPS game.

Same shit. Different year.
I miss those times when a sequel in Call of Duty wasn't the same over-used garbage from 2007.

A shooter game full of lag server bullshit, campers, noobs, noobtubers, 360 fanboys, spammers, little kids, and hackers. Join a match and you spawn and you already get killed by a chopper gunner killing everybody in the same spawn point. You steal someone's care package and later you receive a message by the "owner of the care package" cursing you out calling you a faggot because there was a gunship inside it. You also spawn and you get killed by a random tomahawk, and then you hear people screaming and getting orgasms over the mic because of how "epic that was". You slam your console and start going super saiyan in your room and next day you go on youtube and there you are on the featured video of "Epic Tomahawk Kill across the map". Next day you play search and destroy and while you are defusing the bomb 3-3 tied and suddenly you get knifed. You and everyone else look at the ending killcam and you are getting teabagged and raped and then knifed. You kick your console and it shuts down and you turn super saiyan 9000.
*Player gets noobtubed*
Player: What the f*ck man?! I hate noobtube campers! Ima kick your ass you f*cking cheater. Ima no scope your ass so you feel embarrased you fag!
*Player turns around a corner and no scopes and misses in front of his face and then he gets knifed*
Player:.............................i quit this sh*t. Call of duty is garbage! I swear this game is garbage!

Also called Grenade of Grenade. A shitty, broken piece of coding bought by people who haven't played any better games in their lives. Playing this is somewhat comparable to playing Desert Bus, it's unentertaining and boring, however, it lacks the realism Desert Bus has, making the latter a better game by default.
Person 1: Call of Duty is so good!!!!!1

At this point, Person 2, or any passing bystander should shoot Person 1 because it's evident they are retarded.

What was once a solid FPS has since become the most overrated video game franchise ever. Activision is just riding off of the massive success from Call of Duty 4 and has been selling virtually the same game ever since. For those of you that don't know, CoD 4 came out in 2007.

However, it is the mindless kids' fault that the CoD series is where it is at today, since they will buy anything with the Call of Duty logo on it.

As a result, the CoD franchise is beginning to suffer the same fate as the Guitar Hero series, meaning that it is losing it's luster due to the fact that a new game is released every single year. It is only a matter of time before the CoD series dies out.
Call of Duty is the Guitar Hero of FPS. Activision just can't stop milking that cash cow.
