Your argument is made laughable when you insert your opinion as fact. For people who like that style of game, which is a ton of people, Modern Warfare is of tremendously high quality. Similar games like Medal of Honor or Breach are much worse, and sell much worse.

Medal of Honor was much worse? Really? I heard it was pretty much the same as CoD, which was its biggest problem. But if you actually enjoy pseudo-realistic military shooters with completely linear and scripted single-player campaigns, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy MoH. Hell, if MoH was called Call of Duty: Modern Honor, it would have sold about as much as any other CoD game. Not that it sold badly or anything. 5 million units is hardly a poor showing.

Let's not fool ourselves here. CoD sells because it has CoD in the title. Just like Diablo 3 sold because it was called Diablo 3. There are better games in each of those genres but quality isn't what sells games. Hype and marketing is what sells games. If quality sold games, then every good game ever made would sell well but as history can attest to, that's not the case.
