Both of these games have gained a huge following and have gained massive amounts of hype in these past months as their release dates edge ever closer. Of course, this also brings along what could only be described as one of the greatest flame wars of our age. This flame war has just about every hardcore Battlefield and Call of Duty fan crying foul whenever a negative comment or opinion is conveyed about their beloved franchise, and many will swear to hunt down and reign death upon any naysayers of their respective franchise.
Many of us at MP1st agree that Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 both look equally stellar in their own respective ways and plan to purchase both games. However, this is considered blasphemy among the fanboys and will have them reigning down a hellish fire of F-bombs upon your mortal being. I believe all of this hate between the people is possibly causing more harm than good for their game of choice. Sadly, some people may see these hell-infested comments about how the other game blows, and it may form a mindset that makes them believe that the game they are actually trying to support will only be littered with these types of people. In turn, these viewers may end up avoiding the title all together. To be truthful, I find these foul-mouthed trolls to be quite ill-mannered and are giving gamers a bad reputation by displaying a failure to broaden their perspective and see that there are actually other games out there than what they play. They will do nothing but talk bad about other games, no matter the genre.
Despite all of the fanboy fanfare, you should buy both of these games.
Modern Warfare 3 is shaping up to be one hell of a good ride as the story intensifies and the multiplayer heats up. I really liked the story in Modern Warfare 2, and found it very intriguing and fun. Plus, who can hate on Captain Prices’ beard? Seriously! That stuff is forged from the gods. Modern Warfare 3 sets out to raise the bar among the saturated FPS market and is looking to do so in fine form. With a revamped points streak system and what looks to be the most exciting and fun Call of Duty experience to date, Modern Warfare 3 looks to be the best title in the series yet. I can’t wait to pick up my own copy, hop online and produce a blood bath of epic proportions.
Now, if only there was a game that could fulfill my realistic shooter needs when I am tired of the fast paced “run ‘n’ gun” style of Call of Duty. Oh wait! There is, and it carries the name Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3 is the sequel to the award-winning game Battlefield 2 which re-defined the way we play tactical shooters. Battlefield 3 is sporting the new Frostbite 2.0 engine and is looking absolutely stunning, even on consoles. The realistic gun physics, animations, sound and destructible environments make this game stand out from the crowd. It gives you a breather from the Call of Duty world and instead throws you into a huge battlefield filled with jets, tanks and helicopters to aid you in your fight. Now, if that isn’t enough to get you excited for this game, then I don’t know what is. To put it simply, this game is looking fantastic and looks to redefine the genre once more.
Will Battlefield 3 outshine Modern Warfare 3 ? Only time will tell. All I know is, is that I can’t wait to pick up my copy of both of these great games and start some chaos online (and get sucked into to both games’ campaigns). Why can’t we all just agree that both games will go on to sell well and both games will be superb in their own way? Why can’t we just love both Battlefield and Call of Duty?
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you shouldn’t care about which game will smite the other’s ass.
