Is it dumb that I'm canceling my Battlefield 3 copy because...

I'm absolutely terrible at its multiplayer via the beta? I'm generally terrible at online FPS games as it is but I'm not sure if paying $60 dollars for just the campaign is worth it. I have it fully paid off but I'm thinking of switching my money to Skyrim.

I'm not here to discredit Battlefield I just find myself constantly struggling behind my friends when it comes to these games...kind of makes me sad I can't hang. :/

If you're not having fun, don't get it. I used to play CoD just to play with my friends that are scattered all over the country and wasn't ever bothered by the fact that I was usually pretty terrible. If it bothers you, though, there's really no point.

Not really. If it's not your type of game don't force yourself into being peer-pressured. I'm sure Skyrim will give you just as much enjoyment as BF3. Also, FPS campaigns are not good at all and aren't worth the $60 price. So I say switch to Skyrim. It'll probably be a better game anyways.

Waiting for: BF3, MW3, Skyrim, Revelations, PC.

Man up, sissy boy! That's quitter's talk! You grab that rifle and march up there with the big boys!

But eh, to each his own. Not really dumb if you don't enjoy being killed over and over and over. Then again, the Beta does have some bugs that might be the case - such as increased damage on moving targets.

If you're really determined to play with your friends, you can always take a support role.

I was terrible at Halo 3 for years.
I would go -3 or more on a regular basis.

That being said, it was one of my favourite games. Still is... although I DO beat up on the scrubs now.

The more you play a game, the better you get. Well that's what it was like with me. I remember playing CoD4 when it was released. I had a ratio of like 1, I thought I was pretty good at the time, but I looked at it a few months ago and compared to my 1.7X in Black Ops, 1.4X in WaW and 1.XX in MW2 I realised I wasn't that great.

The 1.0 ratio on CoD4 was on the PS3 lol. I must of been really terrible. I played on it again and was doing amazing. I was so much better than I was before. I don't know if it's because the 360 players are more competitive or that I have just gotten better at playing it.

When I first played BC2, it was my first Battlefield game. I had just played the demo or beta, can't remember which one it was, but it was before the game was release obviously. I wasn't that great. Couldn't get used to the bullet drop, the clunky-ish controls compared to CoD and I was dieing quite often. I got the game regardless because I was having fun, my mate was getting it and we were having a lot of fun on it. I got so much better, I could use all of the classes pretty well. I was doing great at TDM and Rush. Me and my mate would destroy the enemies when we got in a tank. He would drive, I was on the Machine Gun. He would take out enemy tanks and buildings, while I would take out Heli's and enemy infantry. If the tank was damaged, he would find a good spot further away from the battle and we would repair it (we were both Engineer's at the time).

We have both played BF3 beta together as well and we destroyed that as well. I was Supporter and he was Assault. We made a great team.

You shouldn't get games just because your mates are getting it, if you don't enjoy it, don't get it. Why waste money on something you know you aren't going to enjoy? I know I wouldn't spend 40+ on a game just because my mate got it. I would do my research, watch some videos and if I feel I could get into it easy, I would consider getting it.

You're considering not getting a game because you don't find it fun?

And you think that might be a dumb idea?

I'm not getting it at full price because I don't like the mulitplayer. With games like these, a lot of the focus goes on MP and it serves them well as increasingly, it seems to be what people like. I mostly just like the SP of this and COD, Halo, Gears etc, so I'll just wait till it's cheaper. Alas, probably be into 2012 as I don't see a price drop before Christmas.

What you should do is get the ok from a bunch of Internet strangers because it's not ok to spend your own money.
