GenuineGamers writer Alex ‘Alaric’ Lemcovich speaks his mind on a war between two FPS giants and why you should purchase both MW3 and Battlefield 3.
My own reason for getting both games is a simple; two games, twice the gaming joy.
battlefield for realism and great teamplay/vehicles and a more imersive experience. Really FEELS like a battlefield with stuf blowing up around you. Call of duty for a short but epic campaign and an arcade style gameplay in which you'll kill allot but find no satisfaction until you find yourself somewere on the top of the leaderbords in the end of the game. More personal score orientated perhaps? My personal opinion atlhough I know allot off friends that agree with me on this.
If you gotta save up for xmas and are on a budget. Skyrim +bf3 would be the better combo
agreed, but i'm also getting halo:a and gears of war. Also got to pay of my new car, mitsubichi Lancer (:.
They are both going to have relatively short campaigns. Unless Robert Bowling wasn't joking about working on a longer campaign experience. Thing I do nowadays is, short game or not, always play on the medium difficulty/the step behind the Hard or Hardest difficulty on my first playthrough. Not only does it make the game more challenging and extend your initial experience, and when you finally beat it, in most cases, you feel more fulfilled than you would have if you had gone through on easy or normal. Achievements and Trophies for completing on medium and above don't hurt either ;)
I'm done with the COD series there is nothing I would go back for. can't believe people are really supporting both sides. ill post what I posted earlier. Comment found on reddit and edited "Buy both? F that. Pick a side you commie! We're at war! It's why I bought an Playstation and automatically hate Microsoft. It's why you drink coke and have sent violent letters to Pepsi. It's why I own a dog and spit on kittens. No flip flopping!" http://www.reddit.com/r/gam... Pick a side you wouldn't support the North and South in the civil war would you? NO
the problem is ... mw and bf uses different sensitivity and deadzone settings for their aim and move controls ... if i get use to one , the other gets ruined and takes time to getting back into sensitivity .... therefore i stick with one and top thar game .. anyway BF3 is for me this year ... cuz I simply efuse to give my hard earned money to developers who aint bringin nothin new to table.
I would buy both, except that I'm already buying Resistance 3, Uncharted 3 and Payday: The Heist. Thats $140.00 right there, and then I've got to buy Mass Effect 3 in February.
i cant with both... i am a hardcore gamer, but, i dont have too much time to play both. I wanna reach the Max Rank Again on BF3... already 50 on BFB2... In CODBO im 50, 2nd Prestige... i dont like to Prestigue. Other thing... when i play CoD one day, the next Day, i try to play BFBC2 again, and i suck, because the controls and gameplay are totally different... and, CoD is 60fps, BFBC2 is 30fps... So... i preffer to stay in one, and give all my dedication to BF3.
I agree. Ill be buying both. There is room for two great shooters this holiday.
im getting both because i like that whole epic war like feel you get with BF3 and i love cartoons too.
What am I, made of money?
You're not? :S
i have the same problem,i am not made of money...but out of sugar,spice and everything nice:P anyways,i wasplanning on getting bf3 first and mw3 somewhere down the road...but in the end i will go with dark souls,i have had enough of fps games lately.
Cost to content ratio is very much one sided. I shouldn't have to tell you which side though.
I'm going to get both because both have my interest and both are good in there own way.
....because when two frachise competite, Gamers win!
agreed i am getting both MW3 for fast paced gun on gun action and battlefield for something new and looks cool and epic battle feel cant wait
battlefield three ima beat it bad multiplayer mordern warfare 3 ima borrow it from a friend just to play the campaign call of duty games hav nice story just too short
(In before CoD haters) They're both good games. BF3 is for the tactical combat and CoD is for the arcade style shooting. They're both good.
Im buying B3 new and pre-ordering for the awesome map pack. Im buying MW3 used because, lets be honest, their pre-order bonus (a freaking poster) sucks.
so we had- why u should buy bf3 over mw3 and then why u should buy mw3 over bf3. and now this. pfft what next why u shouldn't buy any of the 2? if i have money i buy both, if i don't, i will buy one later. -_-
wow! nobody hating on call of duty yet, I am impressed.
so we can play games because we're gamers, right?
Exactly! The purpose of this article was to show gamers why we shouldn't be hating each others franchise - we should relish in the competition between the two and benefit from it!
Ill be good with just BF3, anyways there is always next year for COD hopefully it will get a legit upgrade instead of just another copy and paste job.
Uncharted 3, Resistance 3 (splitscreen coop FTW) and Skyrim or NBA 2K12 for me. I MIGHT get BF3 later next year though.
Why should I ignore what the title says: Because you should not buy MW3.
Exactly, Activision and their developers should be punished for their lackluster mentality:Doing the same thing for the 3rd time without investing their shitloads of profits in a new engine and getting even more greedy by installing memberships, i'm going to buy Battlefield 3! I'm not going to waste money on the exact same experience for the 3rd time.
COD = http://www.youtube.com/watc... BF3= http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Already had this planned. Both ftw!
That is why Gamefly is my friend!
