Dedicated gaming servers let online video game players control their own gaming arenas and allow for a private room in which they can host their friends or organise team-based games. Online playability is a standard for many video games, allowing for players to compete or cooperate across the globe in game play. A notable video game series played online is Activision's "Call of Duty" franchise, a first-person shooter game. As with many other online games, users can set up dedicated servers for "Call of Duty" with a little patience and computing knowledge.
