    I'm a boy and I have never played COD in my life. I don't hate the game, but just wanna know what is soo special about it.

    If I find out something, I might as well start playing it, but as of now, all I know is that it's some shooting game...

    IGN, Gamespot, Youtube and many others but you came here to ask what a game is all about? Seems abit silly, it would be easier going to any of these websites than one of us wasting our time trying to explain what its all about.

    No. I know what the game is. Not in detail, but I know that its about World War 2 and war and this.

    What I want to know is What is so Special about it? I see EVERYONE soo addicted to it and dyeing for it (facebook pages for instance "Never annoy a boy who is playing COD"...

    What is so special about it?

    It's just a lot of fun, especially online.

    And the Nazi Zombies sub game in the most recent one is great also.

    Suggest you give it a go

    Just from your first post when you said "all I know is that it's some shooting game" it gave the impression you had no idea about it, there is nothing special about COD particularly, its just another shooter that people enjoy alot and all them facebook groups are really lame, made by people who think they are witty... so I wouldnt worry about them.

    Its just very straightforward to pick up and play with a great amount of longevity as well. I'm not the biggest fan but I actually really like Black Ops.

    Thanks to you all, but the answers are not fully satisfying me. I mean even on this thread people are saying things like "If you haven't played COD your not a man" and stuff.

    I mean there must be something special in this. A Wow factor or something. I mean I have played GTA 4 when it came out and even when it just came out people weren't that crazy after the game as they are now of COD.

      I don't like Call of Duty too much either. Every version is identical, the gameplay feels wrong (floaty and too fast, not natural at all) and is also hopelessly repetitive, and the whole business of continually respawning enemies and brain dead AI takes me back to 1997 or sometime around then. CoD4 brought in the stupid and unfair perks system which, for some God awful reason, is now being ripped off by other games.

      Not a fan, I'm afraid but each to their own.

      EDIT: I'm also pig sick of the endless grenade spam you end up with, even in campaign. You stand still for less than one second and it's clink clink clink BOOM.

      COD is better written CoD. It stands for Call of Duty.
      I hope you were being sarcastic.

      Its just the general fast paced nature of the game. Its also good for casual gamers, as its just a pick up and play game. The aspect of guns and customisation also plays a significant factor. People just love these things, especially men. Your best bet is to rent the game, play online, see if its your thing, and if it is, buy it, if not, simply return it.
