Afternoon, Gamespotters!

It is I, MrMusicMan247, returning to the blogosphere after a long absence. I actually haven't been on the site as much as I used to due to work, school, and overall just being busy. The new website layout almost stopped me from being here all together! SHAME ON YOU, GAMESPOT! However I have decided stay and post blogs. I will probably post more blogs than post on forums from now on since the forum layout is not to my liking.


So this is being centered around the release of the PS4, the only next gen console I will be owning this holiday season. There are approximately 11 days until the release of the system and I am so excited I am contemplating camping out TODAY. Though, I'm all talk so it probably won't happen, but nevertheless the release shall be grand. And so in honor of the release, I will be posting a countdown blog every day until the release about one of my favorite games of the previous gen.

And so, to start things off we have....

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare! Competing for the biggest mouthful for a gaming title, COD4 was an absolutely delight, both offline and online. The single player experience, for me, is one of the most memorable in the call of duty franchise, bringing you frustration and excitement all at the same time. A good amount of gamers would agree with me in saying that the sniper mission was possibly the best mission in the game, where you go from performing a covert assassination to holding off waves of enemies as chopper flies in to save you. Just a fantastic experience.

Addicting would be the appropriate word to describe any COD multiplayer, but for some reason COD4 was different. It's multiplayer was the only one to get me to join an MLG LEAGUE because I wanted an excuse to play the it more and more. I could have had the worst game I've ever had, going 0-30 for a K/D ratio, not even able to get a shot off. I would still be ready for that next game. This game to me was the best COD game.

AND SO, that is it for today's blog. Be sure to read tomorrow for tomorrow's game as we Countdown to Greatness!
