Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Developer Treyarch blew away expectations and raised the bar on what it means to be a Call of Duty game. Literally every staple mode was overhauled in some way, on top of completely new features that were introduced.  

Single-player saw improvements all around, most notably with the player choices that can be made that determine which of the handful of endings you will experience. Multiplayer now let's player have full control over exactly what loadout they can bring into battle, even going so far as letting players just start with a knife.

Zombies has been made into a fully fleshed out mode, the new Strikeforce missions brings in some tower defense elements, and the ability to livestream and shoutcast multiplayer matches straight from within the game shows that Treyarch is a strong player in the eSports field.
