It’s Call of Duty Time

First off, Kudos to Activision on the title of this infographic. If you do not get the reference, on Howdy Doody, an American children’s television show that ran from December 27, 1947 – September 24, 1960, every show began with it’s host Buffalo Bob Smith asking the children in the audience, “Say kids, what time is it?” and the kids’ yelling in unison, “Howdy Doody Time!” Clever, right?

Second, I have to admit that I have never played a Call of Duty game. I’m going to be honest, FPSs don’t really do if for me. I recently picked up Borderlands at GameStop because it was only $5. I enjoyed the time I put into it, but it didn’t take long before it began to feel repetitious to me. I’m willing to bet that the online multi-player is what the true draw of these types of games are, but I prefer to play alone (I could have said “with myself”, but that would have made the sentence take on a whole new connotation). Maybe it’s just the point of view that gets me. I’ve played Gears of War, but that’s a third-person shooter and I love the GTA franchise. Who knows… I still prefer platformers, puzzle games, and JRPGs over anything else. To each their own, I guess.

    So, that’s approximately 100,000 respawns per multiplayer match (1.9 quadrillion / 18 billion = 105,000).

    This seems… excessive.

      To be fair, they didn’t say 1.9 quadrillion *multiplayer* respawns…so mum’s the word on how many of those might be in the single player or co-op parts of the game(s) (also zombie mode)

        They did though.

        “Respawns in Call of Duty Multiplayer”

        I dunno. I presume there’s some metric weirdness involved here.

    If you get the chance i would definitely recommend Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The single player campaign is one of my top first person shooters, i would place it above Half Life 2.
