Call Of Duty Ghosts vs Battlefield 4: The Defining Difference

Ever since the release of Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare and Battlefield Bad Company, there's been a distinct difference between the two types of first person shooter player, those that prefer the yearly iteration of Call Of Duty, and those that adore the rich offerings of the Battlefield games. What is the defining difference between these games? And why do gamers get so irate when defending their choice in this war of the modern shooter? (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I Stopped reading after, "Of course the core of every Call Of Duty game is the multiplayer, something they excel in more so than any other game on the market."

cod lacks depth like the game feels empty. i cant explain it, but going to bf its just such a richer experience everything feels so much more. gunplay is incredible the satisfying recoil and sounds which follow. the game looks amazing then there is destruction, objectives which ove up (rush) huge maps and actual team play in which coordinated attacks work

CoD Ghost still using the same Engine

BF4 they actual use a next-gen Engine
ape007  +   265d ago
really?? u think bf4 use new engine? MYTH

watch this....

both are using heavily upgraded engines and that's the right way because they will lose their core feel if they done a new engine from the scratch

Wow I'm surprised by how similar they are. Interesting.

This is why I wish they skipped BF4 this year and released it next year with more bells and whistles..

^^^^^

they are the same in their core but then again it's better than doing an engine from scratch because the gfx in both bf4 and ghosts look waaaaay better than mw3 and bf3(consoles) and they are some of the best gfx in the next gen with bf4 being superior of course(cod still look fantastic though), what more can we imagine? doing a new engine from scratch may result in different control/gameplay feel

Sure, the new Frostbite engine isn't new. But thats because it's not needed. If an engine is good, why should you create a new one? Its far more efficient to upgrade and improve one engine.

And the new Frostbite is much better then the one from BF3. Theres alot under the hood.

Other than the game engine... I see no difference.

LMAO yo i didnt notice that bubz

Both are getting equally as bad.

BF has become so dumbed down over the years and now they are slowly reintroducing features from past games which never should have been left out to begin with.

"...they are slowly reintroducing features from past games..."

Wouldn't someone like you appreciate that?
Einhert  +   265d ago
lol no, it should have never been removed in the first place....

That just did not need to happen.
webeblazing  +   265d ago
yea you gotta to relax a lot of these kidz would eat $hit if everyone was doing it. a lot of games are losing the features they once had. even if they do make it back it should never been left out. this gen you gonna see a lot of games with no local coop and your gonna hear people say but its better online or it look better without it.

I will pick up Ghost later on down the line just for the the 4 player couch co-op (Golden Eye style, may it R.I.P). My son and I still enjoy getting some people together to play a little local multiplayer. COD is one of the only products that let you still do that.
dcj0524  +   265d ago
I think killzone lets you do that.
GiggMan  +   265d ago
No I don't think so. Unless you are talking about shadow fall. I know in KZ3 one player can use bots. There is also a campaign co-op offline.

I wish games would remember to incorporate the old school local multiplayer like back in the day.
dcj0524  +   265d ago
Cod is just boring and empty to me.
Johnsonparts23  +   265d ago
Everyone keeps complaining about COD saying its the same game recycled, and largely it is, but if it continues to make a BILLION dollars in a week using that same game and same engine, why would they change things up? And I mean only as a business model, not as a way to make gaming better. If people stop buying it they'll change things up. Oh and BF4 is not the perfect alternative because as we all know they're very different games. To me BF4 is boring, its slower, it takes more time, etc. Also, just because you use a new engine doesn't make things great, that didn't work for Crysis 2 and 3 and I don't suspect it'll work for BF4.

I love Battlefield 3 most for Multiplayer Conquest, reminds me of Star Wars Battlefront II, a nostalgic game for me.
ape007  +   265d ago
CoD to me has better sp and mp experience, bf has great mp but sp is generally bleh, cod also has better control, story, characters and soundtrack, bf has more destruction and immersion

both are good in their way but cod overall is better to me

Cod R.I.P you have had your run, now its time for dice (bf4) tobtake the spot light and put the soil over cods coffin and take a big crap in there while your at it, some people say bf is slow omfg you serious in what way, do people in bfbround around like there dick isnon fire........nope theybplay tactics and help team mates out and also use vehicles, yes cod kiddies vehicles which you can actually control yourself :D. Thank you dice for producing next gen gaming, and also for putting some of your profit to build a new engine ( frostbite 3) give the cod lot your old bfbc2 engine would be an early xmas present lol.
