Game of the Month: November 2014

November may have been the strongest month this year has seen in terms of the quality of games that came out. While we may scoff at Call of Duty games in recent years, there were high hopes that this one could take the franchise into a refreshing, new direction. With a new developer at the helm, Sledgehammer Games was able to do just that and that’s why Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is our Game of the Month.

Call of Duty has always been known for it’s exotic locations and this one takes you to 5 different continents throughout the campaign which are all visually stunning. The characters are quite memorable as well with Kevin Spacey being perfectly cast as the villain, Jonathan Irons. The multiplayer is the defining part of any Call of Duty game and while the game did not branch out into any new game modes, they were smart in including some of the best ones from the previous Call of Duty games and bundling them all together. The co-op is quite a challenge too and a ton of fun to play with your friends. There is a lot to like about Advanced Warfare and we can only hope that Activision continues to stay on that path.

      I stand by this decision. At the time we made it, Fozzy and I weren’t hooked by DA:I, and Jeff and Don hadn’t played it yet. CoD made sense.

        Which reveals not a correct decision, but an utterly flawed process, in which we had multiple candidates and people making uninformed determinations.

        • Chris Scott

          Collaborative awards are always difficult because they are a consensus choice and rarely do we have all the same information to pull from. Sure it is a flawed process but until we come up with a process that allows us all to stop time and consume everything equally I’m not sure I see a way to fix it, unless we modify this piece it to showcase each of our personal games of the month. At that point it isn’t definitive but potentially more “fair” in acknowledging more titles. I’m arguably OK with moving in this direction though so maybe it is something that should be discussed.

          All that said, I still stand by this call.

            If that’s the hill you want to die on, sure…

            At least you haven’t labelled Mario Kart a sports game. Silver linings and all that.

          • Napoleon1066

            More of a sports game than Madden or FIFA, certainly.
