I just think in general the COD games do not do a good job of making you feel immersed in the story while you play. It seems like I'm always just playing random stages of a game with only a very vague idea of what's going on in the storyline. As much as I love the overall Black Ops experience, it's much of the same. I'm going back and playing through some games like Gears of War, Halo, even the Resistance fall of Man games etc. and those are games that keep you involved in the story. Games that make you look forward to the cut scenes, not dread them.
