    “See, the M-rating in Call of Duty games isn’t just because of the violence, blood, and guns, it’s because the player literally needs to be mature enough to understand and respect history.”

    Call of Duty Black Ops 1, the best and most complete Cod game in the entire franchise! This game is so memorable and was such a big part of my childhood, and it truly inspired me to look up more about JFK and the Cold War! I hope Treyarch remasters finally this masterpiece of a game already!

    That whole "Stalin had little need for heroes" line might be a nod to Georgy Zhukov, the "Hero of the Soviey Union" during WWII, whom Stalin was immensely fearful of due to the potential for him to undermine his cult of personality and power. Dimitri would be in a similar circumstance, and could even be a stand in for Zhukov.

      @C.J. Cook thats CoD bro, of course it is annoing when you are on a streak and die by somebody quickscoping the hell out of everyone, just like it is annoing losing it to a guy that pretty much uses every unskilled and OP weapon the entire match or somebody that abuses the grande launcher attachment or a camper, etc... those are the things that makes everyone rage quit in CoD due to how BS those mechanics are but as i said, thats CoD and we just have to get used to the fact that most people dont really care about being good but rather annoing every other player that actually wants to have a good time playing it, my point is that if i have to chose having to deal with any of that BS, i rather play a guy sniping the entire match because if he kills me at least it was because he was just good and not a lowlife with a granade launcher camping or whatever

    I dunno if someone already found this out but, another great detail in the campaign is in the Vorkuta mission. You couldn’t shoot Reznov or the game would end you. But afterwards when he’s there later on, you can shoot him as much as you want & nothing happens. Great detail of that I’d say

      I thought it would be awesome if on top of bullets passing through Reznov and all the other stuff, they could have straight up disabled collision for him. You would have thought this is just a bug but it would be canon since he physically doesn't exist in most missions

    Black ops had the best iteration of zombies. After then they weirdly put artificial lights and colorings on everything to make it more comical and upbeat. I really preferred the darker, more gritty nature of BO zombies. Playing Der Riese on BO is incredible

    In the campaign you could shoot friendlies and you’d get penalized, kind of like dying, but you could shoot reznov without getting the penalty. It was always mind boggling until you came to the end and understood you were shooting at nothing the whole time.

    I love this game. I wish they would remaster it and make more Call of Duty like this. I wish Call of Duty: Cold War was as awesome as this game and just as long as well. Call of Duty: Cold War single player campaign was a miss opportunity. It could have been longer and touch on different times of the Cold War. The team could have been a unit design to bring down the Soviet Union under President Reagan doing different types of mission based on real events and fictional events. I have added Cold War Military mission such as Operation Earnest Will, the invasion of Grenada, military mission against Libya, Able Archer and the Soviet-Afghanistan war, and more.

  • Fe Reise

    Although I'm somewhat agree with you that this game got a quite impressive historical value and manage to give an attention to a lot of people about it (including me, of course). But what is extremely ironic about this game is, it's a one big disaster in the term of historical accuracy.
    Well, I don't really wanna nitpicking on this kind of stuff and I really enjoy playing this game. But if you are the ones who really interested in history and then you comeback and look at it again, you can see a TONS of the historical contents in this game are literally messed up and some are seriously gone too far. Especially in term of uniforms and WEAPONS. And for the latter one, most of them are certainly anachronistic and inappropriate for the campaign, many of them were existed only in 1970s - 80s (including the so called prototypes by Treyarch).
    Nevertheless, very impressive and wonderful video as always Actman!

    This game was based off of how rough times when you were a military soldier during these wars such as the Vietnam War, and the Cold War. Or just any war. It also captures very accurately the conflicts between the Americans, and the Russians. This lead to the whole main plot of the story. In the 60's, they didn't have the technology that would straight up capture everything that Mason was being asked about. The game gives us the psychodelic feel with the images, and thoughts, wich shows how confused Mason is with the overwhelming questions that he is being forced to remember the answers to, because of the situation they're in, so he needs to remember events, to eventually lead up to remembering the answer to the three main questions: where is the broadcast station that is broadcasting the numbers, what are the numbers, and what do they mean? It really shows how far the opposite team will go to get what they want. They literatley programed Mason to turn against his own military, and to kill his president. The historical figures make this campaign even more powerful because they add real life things into their own story. That's why this is one of the best Call of Duty games in the series. Treyarch was in no way afraid to show the horrors of war. Betrayal, brainwashing, aggression, these are all things that describe the Black Ops Campaign. They even tied the long time theory of two gunmen to kill Kennedy into this story, as Mason being the other one. This game was so amazing!

    I have a theory about how Reznov reprogrammed Mason into killing Dragovich, Steiner, and Kravchenko. And it's rather simple, he unknowingly reprogrammed him.
    Steiner is shown explaining to Dragovich that Mason's programming was too unpredictable due to how strong he was mentally. I believe that due to Mason's friendship with Reznov and their common hatred of these three men, the programming he was subjected to adopted these people as targets, purely because of how emotional Mason was about them.

    Kino and ascension are easily some of the best zombie maps of all time. I know nobody mentions ascension in the pantheon of zombies maps over the years, but if you get a couple buddies, especially in person for couch Co-op, or even a system link, it's easily one of the most fun maps to play on. Training is so much fun there, the lunar landers or whatever those flying elevators are called, are also so much fun. Especially when you and your buddies are running for the lander, and your waiting for it to be activated and u gotta hold out and hope you don't get overrun and then when it launches and it annihilates any and all zombies on or near the lander and you launch just in time before you and or your buddies go down oh my God is it fun. The thundergun and Zeus cannon (I think that's what the upgraded thundergun is called? Can't recall it's been a while) as well as the Russian nesting dolls, the Gersch device/black hole grenades are especially cool as fuck , of course PhD Lebron... whoops I mean PhD flopper has a bunch of use on ascension, and I know it sorta got abandoned after blops 1 and reappeared a few times in some other blops but very rarely and I think that's a travesty because those are so much fun and are really helpful. Not to mention the bad ass sickle, that launching middle that u can launch and blow up with the ray gun, those SUPER FUCKING ANNOYING monkey perk thief rounds, and are probably the worst part of ascension and honestly blops 1 zombies in general. I could go on but you get the point. Ascension is CRIMINALLY underrated.

Actually I'm really surprised, how well this game has aged - both visually and gameplaywise. Also, I forgot how long BO campaign is, in comparison to Modern Warfare and other CoD games. It took me almost 8 hrs now, accoridng to Steam. And it's time for BO2 :)
