A full history of the Call of Duty franchise. From the original game in 2003, up to the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2019.
Celebrate the release of the return of one of the most iconic shooter video game series of all time by learning what led up to this pinnacle moment.
Join me as I detail each and every game, breaking down their development history, storyline, gameplay features, visuals, and their critical reception, all backed with each game's original soundtrack.

Even the smallest donations help me make these videos! (I record all of my own footage and need to purchase several old games for the footage)
This video in particular took me longer than any project I've ever worked on. I put a ton of passion and effort into this documentary - but even so, there are bound to be errors. Please feel free to let me know in the comments if you spot one! Also, special thanks to CasualKlutz for helping with some research and writing on the Treyarch games.
Now sit back, grab a drink and enjoy the ENTIRE History of COD!

  • Please support this channel on Patreon: www.patreon.com/Nick930 You'll get early access to next months documentary, along with personalized shout-outs, behind the scenes videos and images, and with enough support - I can finally scale back those annoying ads so you guys can tune in and enjoy an uninterrupted experience. Thank you all for tuning in. This video took an absolutely insane amount of time to put together. I had to take my vacation last week just to record all of the footage here (which was up to 1.67 terabytes worth!) Also, shout out to my friend CasualKlutz for helping with some of the research/writing on the early treyarch games, along with some feedback on the script. Call of Duty is an incredible franchise, that spans 16 years now, and continues to dominate the sales charts every time. It's easy to say that each game is the same, but in reality - all of the studios involved put a ton of time and effort into trying to maintain this series, with new stories, new motion capture recording sessions, voice over, musical performances, visual overhauls, gameplay mechanics, multiplayer modes, and general features. I've been enjoying this series ever since I picked up the "Call of Duty: Warchest" collection for my PC back in 2005, and each year these studios continue to deliver well polished content. And to celebrate the series and its probable success with its upcoming Modern Warfare, I wanted to share my passion for this series with a documentary that details what makes each and every game distinct. So thank you again for tuning in and stay tuned for more documentaries like this in the future!

    • Would you dig a Call of Duty collection in the style of the Master Chief Collection? With Call of Duty 1 through 4 or 5 with all the Expansions, Maps, and Multiplayers together? Also with graphical little updates (Resolution, Framerate n stuff) I would make them wayyy more accessable and it would keep the Comunity together because all the MPs are on one Disc :)

  • CoD 1 and the expansion pack looks like the best CoD to me. Too bad they don’t look like that anymore, close to a milsim. Nowadays they look like a fucking cartoon.

  • I pretty much agree with that list. You can’t emphasise however how much modern warfare one, revolutionised online first person multiplayer shooter games on gaming consoles. It’s as significant in human history as the development of the wheel or discovering fire.

  • If you heard it correctly "Auto aim If someone watch it in 2019-2021,you will remembered a trash mobile br game with the letter "F"

  • The first CoD is still one of the best FPS ever, imho. Todays kids will def. not understand how much we loved that game. I was 12 / 13 when it came out and we loved to play the Singleplayer campagne, we played it together with CS 1.6. Warzone 3, Unreal Tournament and Battlefield 1942 on LAN-parties and man... we just enjoyed life. Everything was so much more simple back then but also so much better when it comes to enjoying games together. I'm proud that I'm part of the generation who really enjoyed the first days of multiplayer-gaming and today with 30 I'm still gaming a lot. Will never forget the old days!

  • In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, you were right about the character Khalid Al-Asad. But it was revealed that he was only working for someone worse, Imran Zakhaev. In Call of Duty Black Ops 1 you forgot to add the main antagonist of that game, Nikita Dragovich. You were right about the first part of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare's bad guy Joseph Chkheidze, but it eventually had a similar plot like Modern Warfare 2. You got the first part in Black Ops 3 right as well, but it was revealed to be an AI virus called Corvus controlling that team. And Call of Duty Black Ops 4 took place a little bit before Black Ops 3, based on some of the comparison videos that I saw.
