    Call of Duty is not only known for its action-packed multiplayer, but also for its rich storytelling, portraying some of the most iconic and memorable characters in video game history.

    That said, the sheer number of games in the franchise could make the timeline difficult to understand for both new and veteran players. If you want to play every Call of Duty game ever made, this guide will help you decide which games you should play first.

    Call of Duty: Ghosts 2020
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2050
    Call of Duty: Infinite War 2100

    This list is based on the game’s timeline and is the best way to play Call of Duty if you want to follow the narrative. Although games like Modern Warfare take place before the Black Ops II timeline, I place them after the last series because the campaigns are best experienced when you play the games in a series together to better understand the story and characters.

    Therefore, you should play the entire Modern Warfare series from Infinity Ward or the Black Ops series from Treyarch at the same time. As such, you can choose yourself which series you want to play first.
