Call of Duty vs. Battlefield: How Gamers Ruin Both… and Gaming

OXCGN:

"As gamers, we often come to establish what we think of a game based on our previous experiences.

Halo is better than Quake because the graphics are better, or, for a more ignorant comparison, World of Warcraft is the worst game ever “’cuz only nerds play that game. YOLO. Swagg.”

But what we fail to do is recognize the smaller accomplishments that actually construct a game’s ‘personality’, as I like to call it.

Something that comparing a game to another simply just can’t do." (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A very interesting framing of how gamers generalize things. Well done.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1033d ago
How? The article is full of the authors own generalisations about gamers. I found it ironic.
BadCircuit  +   1033d ago
There is a lot of "this game" vs. "this game" going on, when why not enjoy both?
gaminoz  +   1033d ago
We do often ruin things because devs are terrified of not meeting our expectations. So they tend to take few risks and then we complain about that too.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1033d ago
I wont take responsibility for the vocal minority. I dont start petitions because a games ending isn't to my liking. I don't cry over killstreaks or upgrades.
BadCircuit  +   1033d ago
I like devs to take risks, but they know that backlashes can be really big and damaging.

I guess it depends if they are doing the risk for creative reasons, or profit ones.

I still much prefer my single player experiences over multiplayer games/modes.
imXify  +   1033d ago
That's why I always play single player and complete it before touching multi.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1033d ago
Well add me to that. there's at least 3 gamers who don't fit into the authors little box.

Both need to die.Simple as that.

What a silly and childish thing to say. I assume it has flawed logic behind it.
BadCircuit  +   1033d ago
They won't stop making them as long as they make money. And they are usually pretty good overall...just very derivative.

People still buy bland foods like Mcdonald's in droves because they know what to expect and like it.

I stopped reading at YOLO. SWAAAAG

So you didn't understand why it was said, in context?
WUTCHUGUNNADO  +   1032d ago
Even out of context reading it made me lose interest instantly.
BadCircuit  +   1033d ago
I think he was making fun of people who say that kind of rubbish...

Irony's a slippery slope.

I don't like either, they are both generic modern military games that lack any real depth or tactical play.

I prefer the Arma series and Red Orchestra series when it comes to shooters.
Hufandpuf  +   1033d ago
Just say that you like realistic shooters. saying ARMA is better than Battlefield is like saying Gran Turismo is better than GRID. Both are great games, just different styles.
Zha1tan  +   1033d ago
Tell me, what did you think I meant by "I prefer."
