Captain America’s Call of Duty

A few weeks ago I ordered a slew of older Call of Duty games. This should surprise those who know me and my disdain for the series. But it’s more for how the games are put out there than for the core of what they are. Regardless, I did get four of them dating from 2008-2011.

Call of Duty: World at War
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Another game I purchased that’s been a long time coming is Captain America: Super Soldier. It looks like an interesting under-seller of a third-person action game. It usually sells for quite a bit more than you’d expect from a 2011 game being that it’s more than four years later. Despite this I still got it for more than I wanted to pay, but far less than Amazon third-parties were selling it at.
