What do you think of when you hear the terms; Modern Warfare, World at War, Black Ops, Zombies, etc.? That is right, Costume Nation would like to pay tribute to perhaps the best video game franchise of all time; Call of Duty. What better way to pay homage to this epic first person shooter than by sporting a Call of Duty Costume this coming Halloween?
Call of Duty was created by Ben Chichoski which first began as a Computer game, but later made its way to consoles most notably for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. If you have not heard of Call of Duty, you must not be into video games. The Call of Duty lineup is a classic that has multiple game plays to fit anyone’s character. Whether you are looking to play a story, online against friends, family, or strangers, or if you just want to shoot Zombies – you cannot go wrong. From Kids to Adults, and Boys to Girls, Call of Duty has become a household name and game for the family to enjoy. So what makes this game so special?
To be short, the game is flat out addicting. It’s a drug. It sucks you in and will not let you out until the network goes down (Sorry Playstation 3 owners J). All joking aside, there appear to be two different areas where people get addicted.
1) Zombies. Zombies is a game play where you (and teammates, if you so wish) must fight off zombies and navigate your way through levels wherein you receive points which allow you to access different levels of the map. The levels are seemingly endless and this is addicting because you always want to one-up your friends, family, or even your personal best.
2) Prestige. The term” Prestige” is awarded to you play the multiplayer online game play wherein you join a server with others from around the world and are split up into two teams. The goal is to get as many kills (with the least amount of deaths) so that you not only help your team win games, but also to increase your levels. There are 55 levels to pass, at which point you receive a “Prestige” rank emblem. You can “Prestige” as many times as you want – and therefore – like Zombies, the more times you have “Prestiged”, the more bragging rights that you have.
Call of Duty has received a lot of press for wasting away the lives of youth around the world. At the end of the day, children, teens, and adults do spend much time playing video games such as Call of Duty, however, there are positives that come out of this. For one, it can promote interaction between friends and family members. It is very common for brothers, sisters, and friends to get together and play Call of Duty all while having fun. Additionally, it keeps everyone out of trouble. Would you rather have your child, sibling, spouse, friend, etc. out causing trouble on the street or playing Call of Duty? The key here is moderation.
With that being said, Costume Nation would like all of you to consider a Call of Duty Costume this coming Halloween. Whether it is for a party, get-together, or Halloween, you cannot go wrong.
