TC, why should I or anyone else DARE to try and sell u on MW 3? If it aint your thing, it aint your thing. Also, you think anyone is gonna care if you get MW 3 or not?
Its gonna sell like crazy no matter what. Hate it, like it, or love it.......its gonna sell.
MW 3 and BF 3 both are very different War Shooters.
If you want a nice Team Based MP War Shooter with Vehicular Combat, and a greater emphasis on strategy and tactics, then you go with Battlefield
If you want a Faster more Arcade feeling type of MP War Shooter where you can take on droves of opponents and dont need to count on Team Mates, and controls like a dream, you go with Modern Warfare
There is a place in the Sun for both. And get this, neither is terrible. MW gets alot of hate, but MW started the Modern Military Combat Craze in Video Games. The Original MW was fantastic for its time. It broke the mold and there was nothing average about it. It had really high production values in all aspects, and the gameplay was fast, fluid and visceral. MW doesn't deserve all the hate it gets. Not even with the more recent iterations. They still have really high production values and are fast and fun experiences
I personally prefer my Battlefield, but I like MW as well. This is MP I am referring to tho
When it comes to Single Player, Battlefield falls flat. It is disgustingly boring. DICE dont exaggerate and present set pieces well. That is something that is needed in a game like this for that larger than life feeling. DICE attempt to, but they fail in this aspect.
Modern Warfare Single Player isn't mind blowing to me, but it is most definitely alot better than Battlefields. IW knows how to present Set Pieces well, and exaggerate them properly. With proper sound, effects, cinematic flair and such. DICE could take a note from IW in this area
When it comes down to it tho, its like this to me
Battlefield Single Player Sucks, but the Multiplayer is amazing
Modern Warfare Single Player good, and the Multiplayer is quite good as well.
No need to hate either. They are both great and there is room for both in the Industry, and your Gaming Shelf as well --- PS3 without Immersion lacks Rumble and PS3 without Rumble lacks Immersion. Finally Sony did the right thing
Notice I didn't say that MW was the first Modern Military Combat Game. I said it started the craze. Which it most definitely did. It was only after MW, that Modern Military Combat Shooters started popping up all over the place --- PS3 without Immersion lacks Rumble and PS3 without Rumble lacks Immersion. Finally Sony did the right thing

Lots, this always happens when two big hype games with similar styles get released around the same time. Another big one was Prototype vs inFamous.
As for which one, I've pre-ordered BF3 for pc.
As for CoD, the series really started getting pretty bad after CoD 2. 3 was terrible, 4 was much better but after that the series has been on a gradual decline. --- Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

I say that title belongs to Rainbow Six.
Rainbow Six Then came Delta Force Then Counter Strike Then Ghost Recon Then Soldier of Fortune Then Operation Flashpoint Then SOCOM
From 2007 up to now we've got roughly the same amount of games.
