When I say “Friday”, what’s the first thing you think about? The weekend? Beers at the local perhaps? No, of course you don’t. Friday means one thing to everyone these days; Free Game Friday. So to give us all something to look forward to, we’ll be running another free game competition this week, so read on to find out how you can enter.
This is definitely not the first time I’ve said it and I very much doubt it will be the last time, but first person shooters are pretty darn popular. Arguably one of the most highly regarded series of the new breed of FPSs is Call of Duty. I’ve written several times about the impact this series has had on me, so I thought that it’s about time we included it in #FGF.
It’s come a long way, as you would expect of such a popular title, so much so that it has warranted being the subject of the first head-to-head modern vs. classic blog post. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the sixth instalment of the Call of Duty series continuing the storyline of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It didn’t win the battle against its classic counterpart but that’s not because it isn’t a great game. In fact I’d have to say that I enjoyed Modern Warfare 2 more than the other modern war titles of the CoD franchise. For this reason, we’ll be giving away a copy of the game to one winner of this week’s competition.
Clearly we can’t just throw this game out into the baying masses, so I’ve devised a cunning method in which to award a suitable candidate with such a desirable prize. If you fancy your chances then here’s what you need to do. As always with Free Game Friday, you have two chances to enter.

For the second entry, leave a comment on this post to the following question:
We’ve seen this series go from past battlefields to contemporary settings and throughout the gameplay has remained intense. The discreet yet integral accompaniment to all this has been the backdrop of various environments staging the changing scenarios. So for this week’s question, I’d ask you to consider which era, period or war would most befit the next instalment of this engrossing series? It would need to be something immersive and compelling but I’m happy to take suggestions from any time period past, present or even future.
Let me know what you think, it’d be great to see what you guys come up with as I sure you all will have an opinion.
