COD Ghosts_Beware of Shark Current Gen

Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest installment in the now-10-year-old franchise, elicited the most polarizing feelings I’ve experienced since Treyarch’s World at War in 2008.

I’ve expressed my love for the 1980’s G.I. Joe opening sequences multiple times (especially the one that ran starting with the “The Pyramid of Darkness” mini-series and the TV show proper), but the opening credits for the feature-length G.I.
