5 of the best Call of Duty moments
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – helicopter nuked
One of the most unique experiences in a video game – seeing a nuclear explosion from a first-person perspective. Your helicopter's downed by the shockwave and you're left to helplessly crawl through the wreckage, slowly expiring under the shadow of the mushroom cloud. In a genre where death just means restarting from the last checkpoint, this glimpse of mortality was a genuine shock – and a hint that gaming is finally reaching the Hollywood level of story-telling.
