Call Of The Battlefields: 'Battlefield 4' Vs. 'Call Of Duty: Ghosts'

Forbes - I’ve written a bit this week on both the enormous success of Activision’s first-person shooter franchise Call of Duty and on the newly revealed, gender-balanced Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer.

Now EA and DICE have released a series of videos of Battlefield 4 player “testimonials” accompanied by footage of some pretty crazy-looking gameplay in the game’s sprawling multiplayer mode.

To be honest, it looks pretty good—a step up even from 2011′s Battlefield 3. (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

You should pat yourself in the back for being so original.

Full out destruction vs A few predestructive walls.

Glad that they have different styles.

Despite all the deserved criticism, I still have more fun with COD than with BF.

(and today there was a guy spawn-camping on BF3... With a TANK! Not cool.)

I hate that crap!!! On BF3, on the map when you spawn on the aircraft carrier they always do this crap with the helicopters! And to top it off, the person who runs that server always has the message "no heat seeking missiles" or something to that effect. So much BS I now automatically just back out of those matches. Pure garbage, but I guess no matter what game it is people will always camp and find out a way to spawn kill unless it's prevented by the devs.

hey let's be careful now. you're not allowed to say positive things about call of duty ever. it's on page 78, paragraph 5 on the video game websites manual.

battlefield is a perfect game with no campers or anything annoying ever. oh and yeah xbone sucks and ps4 rocks.

did I miss anything else?

DEAL WITH IT...

COD all day. Faster gameplay, better movement, more intense action and killstreaks. I might play the storymode on BF4.......nah, no I won't.
DomceM  +   432d ago
whatever works for you.

Just amazed you guys dont get bored of paying for the same game year after year.
Funantic1  +   432d ago
BF4 should be a BF3 DLC.
DomceM  +   431d ago
Maybe... but if it is then it is only that because DICE /EA realized they can milk consumers by releasing early shooter games from the same franchise.

A lesson they learned from COD and activision. So you really have no one else to blame but Kotick and Co. on this one.

same genre sure..

enjoy each for what they mean to YOU..not someone else..

Both will be fun. Meanwhile several fans on both sides will still be debating on whether or not they meet up and fight already.

It really depends on what you want.

If you're looking for team play, environmental destruction, great graphics, vehicles, next gen feeling, $15 proper expansions, dedicated servers, etc, then you'll want to pick up BF4.

If you're fine with the experience that we've been getting for the past 7 years, don't mind P2P lag, and don't mind paying $15 for a map pack, then you'll want to pick up CoD: Ghosts.

Personally, I'm sick of playing the same game over and over. I want a more satisfying experience, so I'll be picking up BF4 for sure.

cod is fun to just jump on with any gun and own little kids
battlefield is the overall experience and teamwork, there's nothing more thrilling in the shooter genre than being in an all out war with buildings collapsing, tanks and helicopters causing mayhem and jets raining death from the skies and that's exactly what battlefield offers

BF4 > CoD: Ghost

All day, every day

I seriously can't believe COD has been outselling Battlefield up until now. I mean all COD does is copy Battlefield's innovations. In 2007 when everyone was freaking out about COD4, I had been unlocking new weapons and equipment and playing in 64 player maps in BF2 for 2 and a half years!

Why was COD4 (or any COD for that matter) so popular? The only thing COD has that BF didn't was a single player campaign and no one plays them more than once anyway!

Who are these brain dead zombies that keep buying outdated COD year after year? And why? It's seriously disturbing to me that the company that actually is innovating and improving the genre has been getting the shaft for over a decade.

I raise my glass to DICE for continuing to do what they do in spite of the brain dead hordes of dude-bro gamers that only buy COD every year. Here's to you, DICE. Don't ever change!

EXACTLY. Bubble up.
objdadon  +   432d ago
Why can't people just like to play the game? " Brain dead zombies"? Cod is fun and fast so a lot of people prefer it. The funny thing is people act like battlefield makes ground breaking changes each game but it looks the same to me just with a few more buildings you can level. I like both and will get both because they're 2 totally different types of gameplay. Battlefield is great but not fast paced and frantic enough to ever outsell and overtake cod's audience. The only game that from the looks of it can potentially do that is titanfall if they go multi platform. Looks like they have the right formula.

BF4 should be a BF3 DLC.

You mean like most every COD has been DLC for COD 4 ?
