My Memories of the Call of Duty franchise

Call of Duty:Ghosts has been teased and already I can see the hate flow though the gaming community I love. What I feel I should explain first is that I love videogames of all kinds and grew up playing the classics and to this day still support and love anything that is unique and weird.Basicly I feel I have to tell you im not a bro gamer who only likes him some Halo, COD, and Gears of War, although I do find some of those games fun.
My first experince with the COD games came when me and my friend Josh were skating down to the local Game Crazy. We went in and they had COD:Big Red One (Im thinking this can't be the name but its what i remeber it being) on one of thier demo systems, my friend and I were blown away by the graphics and gameplay we took turns playing and beat that game in the store. I remebered thinking that game was magic because untill then Josh had never really been into games.
Fast forward years later I started my first job at Chuck E. Cheese's and I was sorta shy and wasn't really clicking with anyone but this guy at work named Devon asked me if I had a 360. I just happened to have bought one recently and said yeah, we traded info and not much really came of it untill one day while I was playing COD WaW I got a message from him. "Hey you should hop off that crappy game and get on COD MW". A week later I picked it up and was hooked, but more importanly though playing that game with Devon I got to know him and we've been best friends ever since.
Then came Black Ops and the begining of a whole new friendship with Devon's Roomate at the time Jon. Jon also worked with us at Chuck's but I had limited interaction with him untill Black Ops came out,see we were in the same Clan on both MW 1 and MW 2 but, only really played with each other when Devon was on,untill BLOPS. Devon had moved over to the Ps3 to play BLOPS but being that I didnt want to buy the game twice I stuck with my 360 copy as did Jon, so naturally we played together, we ended up playing something like 7 hours a night but the fun was us just bullshiting with each other and we also became life friends due to COD.
On April, 18th 2012, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 C testicular cancer and had to under go Surgery and Chemotherapy, while going though chemo I was so weak I couldn't really get into any games but boredom and fear don't mix well so I began to play MW 3(and the second magic the gathering game) . Not only did it help to keep my mind off what is happening but my friends were able to play with me and it brought back some normalcy to my life, for which I desperately needed.
Now, I'm better its a year later and I beat cancer, and am playing BLOPS two on and off and still having a blast. Which isn't to say that I can't see why this series is getting the hate it is for the most part the campaigns are ehh at best and the series isn't doing a lot to revitalize itself, but man I still hope that Ghosts comes out and brings me some more joy and good memories.

About Mr fairenhieghtone of us since 2:55 PM on 03.12.2011

My name Is Mattt Clark AKA Mr Fairenhieght, And yes I do realize Fahrenheit is not spelled correctly. I've been into gaming ever since I can remember having the ability to process thoughts, it's always just been so cool to me to be able to experience different stories and situations and actually be in them not just outside looking in. My favorite types of games have long been fighters since Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter 2, However I'm in to most types of games the exception being sports games I do like them but I've never found one I've been particularly into. I game on a variety of consoles from the Atari 2600 though the Big 3 new gen consoles with handhelds in between. I've just recently got into PC gaming it's tough to go form controller all your life to a keyboard though i am trying.
