The Big Guns: Halo 4 vs. Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Who wins in this ferocious battle between the two biggest FPS games? Besides the gamers? (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Meeeh, I've not played any Halo games since Halo 3 or CoD games since MW2 and even I can see they can't/shouldn't be compared.

Its like saying whats better, Street Fighter or King of Fighters. They are too different to say that one is categorically 'better' than the other despite being the same genre.

They belong to the same genre...
It cannot get any closer than this, lol, I find that so illogical. It they were the same than it would be copy right infringement, so obviously it's going to be a different adaptation of the same genre.

Would you only want to compare only Saw trilogy films with one another or compare any horror movie to one another?

And yes a game can be better than another in the same genre, some games redefine the genre, others change with the times.

You're missing the point, comparing it with MW3 or the previous Black Ops would make far more sense. Has it improved over previous iterations or has it taken a step backwards?

Personal preference is going to dictate which is the 'better' game especially when comparing franchises like Halo and CoD which makes this kind of article irrelevent.

When determining what game is better it can be objective or subjective, when being objective you look at the facts and everything else is subjective.

When doing a review, the best reviews take into consideration of all the games in the genre. It's like saying the Olympics is irrelevant because they are comparing athletes from different nations, it's illogical. If we did not compare our selves to anything, everything would be at a stand still, it defeats the purpose being the best you can be.

I would like to also note, if a game is starting a new IP, it would always get perfect, because there is nothing else to compare it to according to your logic*.

My vote is for Black Ops 2 but each to their own.

I don't see why you got dislikes just because you have a specific taste, its not like you were trolling.

Black Ops 2 is an improvement from MW3 and Black Ops but it's still a mess. There is no need to aim down the sight with how accurate you are at blind firing.

So it's Halo for me. If I want to get killed by a 12 year old or manchild camper with an SMG hiding behind a wall who doesn't even need to aim anymore, I will play Call of duty.

If they go anymore Casual friendly, the game will turn into the Teletubbies.
