"The military shooter has been around for the majority of video game history. The concept, execution, and–most importantly–sales of these games is fairly simple and can often show off the current power of gaming platforms. " | Explosion.com
Meh its just COD younger brother
Older brother* Battlefield came out before CoD.
Infact battlefield is cods big daddy Cod is the young lad
battlefield is all about online multiplayer.. it began its days on PC, that was some pure hardcore gaming! COD cant be compered to BF, and its not its brother.. its BF's little bi*h with no legs and with no "get to tha chopaaaa"! :) I wish BF4 will go back to core only MP... not going to happen since now people want dumb Hollywood SP... anyways.. No shooter will tell me what power the gaming platform have... just like sales or reviews! All kinds of games and features show the true power.. PS4 my choice for future!
*yawn* I'm tired of fps, want the industry to focus on something else next generation.
Call of Duty is the Little Brother everyone likes cause he is friendly Battlefield is the Big Brother everyone fears and respects cause he is so dominate. Arma is the DADDY who is Legendary! (Red Orchestra is the Red Hair Step Child but very cool in his own way)
Whta does that make the original Operation Flashpoint?
Your comparing apples to oranges with trying to say that BF is like a Cod game. They are two totally different type of Modern combat shooters. Heres a reality check for you....which one is a "run and gun" style of play and which one needs some thinking and teamwork??? Oh and 1 more thing...Tanks,jets,and helicopters! Enuff said!
I'm cool with BF and military shooters but TBH, we need Less Military shooters and less shooters in general. If you are making one at least be original and not do another military shooter. It's really killing the genre. This inflation is just a bubble that will pop and those who bought all in will be SooL.
sadly, CoD has IGN in its damn back pocket and anything and everything related to it is praised by the CoD fanboys that work at that site. Also, unfortunately, this genre will only go as far as the biased reviewers will allow it to go. If they shoot down great franchises that are directly rivals to CoD, it's only a matter of time before the genre is extinct and the only left is CoD and all of its lag compensation and lack of dedicated servers.
Yep, the PC version of COD died after CODWAW. At least Treyarch supported the PC community back then and there were REAL dedicated servers. Now they're rich enough to not give a damn because they know that morons will still buy COD no matter what. I never trust reviewers anymore, i'd rather judge it myself from gameplay videos.
