Tiny characters, called Sims, are guided through various daily tasks and situations where they interact with other Sims. The sequel, The Sims 2, followed in 2004 and this year has seen the release of The Sims 4.

    Call of Duty

    Call of Duty is a first-person shooter game that was published by Activision in 2003. It was set during the Second World War with the main character an infantry soldier. It was one of the first games to introduce computer-controlled allies that assist the player during battles. Later sequels moved away from WWII and placed the game in modern warfare settings.
