Not surprising I know, but I do.  I’m not great at video games, but I’m not the worst either.  I play my Wii and I like puzzle games… what surprises me is my fascination with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  I played The Call of Duty series as a first person shooter single player mode for COD 2 and 3.  I played the Single player mode for Modern Warfare 1 and got COD 5 for the Pacific Theater, but I just couldn’t get into that one… I guess I was WWII’d out.  I went back to the original Modern Warfare and made my first foray into multi-player mode. I got addicted to them and I got pretty good.  I even “prestiged” once to see what that was all about.  Yeah, that was about losing all my weaponry and having to earn it back, which I do have to admit was kind of fun.

When Modern Warfare 2 came out I made sure I had pre-ordered a copy for the hubby, but I found myself jonesing.  I begged and pleaded until I got my own copy. I think so far I’ve only made it through about half the Single Player mode, but I’m already getting close to prestiging in this version.  The maps are great and varied, though like in the last game I do have my favorites and I’m still trying to decide on which load-outs I like better.  The one thing I wish I could do though, is bring in the maps from the original and play them too.

I’m still getting use to the throwing knife and the “stickies”, but they do add a nice dimension to the play.  I’ll just have to keep working on it and get better as time goes on.  See you online!

Rawr!
