You could just close your eyes and pick one, they’re all amazing.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4
COD’s new release says “goodbye” to its campaign mode, and “hello” to battle royale and a Zombies mode that’s bigger than ever. And, as it turns out, that was a really good idea. Call of Duty Black Ops 4 focuses all of its attention on its multiplayer experience. Why? Because “we wanted to give players more ways to have fun with their friends than any game we’ve made before;” says Treyarch game designer Tony Flame.
