Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was a step in the right direction, and some will say it was also a glorious return to form.

Still, the majority of our readers don't believe it was enough to save the ailing franchise. Most said the series is "still doomed" despite the relative warm reception of the most recent installment.

Perhaps the readers aren't wrong, either, as the sales numbers didn't smash any new records and in fact, the sales performance of the blockbuster franchise continues to decline. Of course, this doesn't mean the IP is going to disappear, but it could mean Activision might have to struggle to rejuvenate CoD…in spite of Sledgehammer's great effort.

This week, it's time to start the voting for the 2014 PSXE Reader's Choice Game of the Year Award. You've got until the end of the year to vote for the best of the best this year. If you don't see your favorite on the list; sorry, but it'll fit only ten titles. ūüėČ
