The campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been one of the biggest disappointments of the year for many players. After promising us the first open-world campaign with a great freedom of choices in a COD, we have been presented with a bland, poorly cohesive, very short storyline, and, to top it all off, full of bugs.

Obviously, the specialized press has not overlooked all of this, especially after we learned about the short development time that Sledgehammer Games had (only 16 months), imposed by Activision Blizzard, and has heavily criticized it. However, the Modern Warfare 3 campaign has also brought back the best character in the entire Call of Duty saga.

“Indeed, we are talking about Riley, the loyal military dog from Call of Duty: Ghosts, who accompanied Ghost (the second favorite character of the saga’s fans) on some missions in the game. This good boy is an Easter egg from the last mission of Modern Warfare 3, where we will have the opportunity to interact with him and forget about the plot for a moment.

We will encounter Riley in the mission ‘Trojan Horse,’ where our former bomb-sniffing ally will be still, supposedly waiting for his owner, who is buying popcorn at a street stall. Best of all, he won’t be just another NPC; we can pet him over and over again, as much as our hearts desire.

The possibility of petting dogs and other animals in video games is a trend that more and more studios have embraced, thanks in large part to the great popularity of the Twitter account Can You Pet The Dog. This account shows us which games give us the opportunity to show our love for these beings of light, or those in which (for some completely inexplicable reason) we don’t have that option.
