Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is 2012's annual dose of the franchise. Refreshingly, it places our gun-wielding protagonists in a near-future setting where military arsenal has become a little too smart for our comfort, and has fallen into the wrong hands. Black Ops 2 is a Treyarch development, and does, as such, beat Infinity Ward's productions in visual detail. It uses a new game engine that has been optimized for the capabilities of DirectX 11 hardware, which means it stresses such hardware properly.
