More PC people play CoD 4 because it has dedicated servers unlike MW2 which uses p2p like consoles. CoD 4 is a lot more fun with dedicated servers because server hosts can police their own servers, reduces lag, and can have up to 32 people playing on one map rather than the capped 18 on consoles and MW2 PC. Games are also usually longer as well so you can get 100 kills or more in one game.
Definitely worth it for $15.
you know, i still prefer dedicated servers but i can definitely see the benefit to IWnet. Being able to just jump in and play is kinda nice. It just has issues that will most likely never get solved and thats what breaks it. No ability to vote kick/ban is its biggest fault.

If I've never plated a Modern Warfare game, is this worth my time, or should I skip straight to the (much-discussed) sequel?
Edit: And jeez, it took the thing this long to get down to $15? Mass Effect was $5 not too long ago...
The single player is just as goon as the sequel (and the storyline is actually believable and makes sense). The multiplayer is just as garbage as MW2. Dedicated servers or not, the actual game sucks in multiplayer (especially if you've had the experience to spoil yourself silly on the incredible gameplay of PC Bad Company 2).
I hadn't thought about the ability to mod MW, so take the above posts into your consideration. I'd buy MW for $15 just off the single player. If you are a multi-player freak, your mileage (and tolerance for mind numbing gameplay) may vary.

I think I might have missed out on the good 'ol days of MW1 MP that everybody seems to remember. By the time I got it, every single game I entered had an insane amount of aimbotters. Even the PB games. What was worse, people would ask where to get them and the aimbotters would tell them! After about 2 hours of getting headshotted with LMGs from across the map, I was so pissed off I never played again. I'm thinking I just had really bad luck, but I don't see myself ever playing MW1 MP again. SP is awesome though.

The epilogue scene in the jet blew me away!

I was just about to point that out.
I love how the new DLC pack for MW2 is more expensive then MW1 by two bucks. Great deal by the way.
MW > MW2 stimpack.
