Dane Cook and other celebs talk gaming at the RAGE launch party, weighing in on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3.
Dane cook knows and worked with the COD team for years. The two other guys had video game knowledge but I doubt they ever played a BF game.
Does it even matter? Some friends of mine, die-hard gamers (what ever that maybe) are more excited for COD than BF and... well thats it. They like what they like, I like what I like, you like what you like. Life goes on, they're computer games.
Didn't say anything about what I like.
Nor did I. I didnt think my comments context was confusing but basically.... Like/enjoy whatever you want and it doesnt matter what anyone else thinks or likes. This isnt a serious matter, it's games.
Yeah well I think Dane Cook is a complete tool and not funny. Also, since when has he been a celebrity eh?
I understood exactly what you meant the first time I read it. I think some people just assume that everybody on here is a jerk and automatically read comments as if they're insults. Instead of reading the actual contents of the comment. You make a good point and I completely agree with you.
choosing guitar hero or rock band. I like them both but I lean more towards guitar hero because of the simplicity of picking up and playing. It doesnt mean it is the better technical of the two it just means I can get into it quicker and enjoy it without having to rethink the play mechanics. Ok that may have been a bad analogy but you get the idea.
The day i choose a game over another based on what celeb-"gamers" play is the day all of you are getting the permission to blow my brains out.
@Darthv72 That is the best comparison between the two games I have ever heard, seriously. But then you have to look at who got canceled (guitar hero).
Only frat boys think Dane Cook is funny... they also think Bud Light is good beer, so I could give a piss what the guy thinks.
bud light may not be as good a light beer as others but they sure do have some funny commercials.
@guitarded Agreed that bud is adjunct piss. Try La Fin Du Monde. One of the best beers in the world.
@Fishy Fingers While I do agree with you that we should respect people's opinion, I disagree we should chalk it up as "it's just games." This medium goes beyond entertaining and branches out into people's passion, jobs, interests, etc... Don't disrespect the medium as being "just games," it's not "just" anything. Is this a serious matter? No. Is it a serious medium? Yes.
I tried getting a few of my friends into battlefield, they hated it. Sad thing is black ops was the only game they've played in the last year, literally... These types of gamers can be thrown in the same category as the female gamers that only play farmville or the music lover that only listens to mainstream rap, they like whatever is popular regardless of how crappy it all is.
are you a muslim ?.. :) because the way you said the last sentence is like the quran XD... i like it :P ,it's a good advice..
People love to hate whats popular. Lady gaga,justin biber,lil wayne,niki minja,britney spears...e.t.c some of the most popular artist are hated on daily online. Just how Cod is hated on daily on game blogs because its more popular than there fav game. I bet if BF sells 20million and its very popular with the causal crowd people will jump ships to the next thing that is not popular. then when its popular they move on...The trend goes on!!!. Its really sad, we fans enjoy Cod games and we like the fast paced arcade arcade gameplay so y change what the fans love?K. Pls tell me what Military FPS has innovation, last time i checked majority of FPS are all the same. Tell me what innovation BF is bringing to the table,If u call destruction innovation then ur head is in ur ass because i have played other games i have blown up buildings E.G Black on PS2. Well i expect more ignorant bias comments from BF fanboys,Its nothing new. Just another day on N4G.
Triumph of the lowest common denominator. Hooray. OT - Is the headline supposed to make me want to buy MW3? If so... *searches soul*... nope... not working.
.. They should be hated daily! Again, just my opinion, but those artists aren't musicians or entertainers.. they are PRODUCTS. they are generated by giant corporations who study demographics and target audiences and then thrive on homogeny in the entertainment industry. People like the artists you mentioned are groomed and made up to sell music that they probably didn't even write, because they have that certain "something" that brings in dollar signs, whether its looks, shock-value, or they're really popular with junior high girls. You probably know people from your hometown who can shred on the guitar or can sing like a superstar, but there's a reason they're not selling records, and it's probably because they're not young and/or pretty. Sorry for the off topic rant, but as a musician this pop-music/pop-culture stuff hits close to home. ON TOPIC: I love CoD, and I do plan on picking up MW3, but definitley not a Day one purchase for me. Battlefield? Day one the minute the store opens. Furthermore, I could care less what Hollywood "celebrities" think about any videogame. The opinion of people who's ego's are generally bigger than my house are meaningless to me. And Dane Cook's not funny.
I don't know why people are disagreeing with you... Seriously. I am not a fanboy... for example i got 2.0 K/D ratio on the BF3 beta and MW2... I am crazy about both... I still play Bad company 1 on ps3... But the fact of the matter is people hate whats popular... MW3 don't look much better than MW2 and in all seriousness BF3 don't look a thousand times better than BC2, some say BC2 looks better than the BF3 beta. Gimme my disagrees, I stand by the truth. And please don't reply and say its just a beta.
Nobody thinks he's funny anymore.
Anymore? When was he ever funny? He's always been a loud douche. The fact remains, Call of Duty is a pop culture phenomenon. It's popular and it's accessible.
lol so the only reason they wud chose this is because they either worked with IW (or who ever) Or theve never played a BF game... it cudnt be they played em both and have come to a decision that CoD is more their style and is alot better to play :)
really? F#$&ing dane cook? who cares what this retard says. He's a idiot.
Aside from the Mw3 v Bf3 debate, this is a pretty funny video. Best part was John Krasinski.
My personal favorite is Charlize Theron's interview. You can just tell she knows her games. "Snoop playin' that Madden" hahaha I also love how all of these celebs show up at the RAGE party and have no idea what RAGE even is *smh*
I agree with that :)
I listen to Celebs about games just like I listen to them on voting. I don't.....
I just don't care about celebs any of them make a good movie sure i'll watch it but i couldn't careless about there personal life or opinions.
Exactly, because Dane Cook's opinion is the one I truly care about. Thanks Dane I'm off to cancel my BF3 preorder so i can spend all my time playing MW3 with you. /sarcasm
Video is not working atm for me :/ However based on the title, of course. COD has more money to spend on advertising like this. Toss a few free games or whatever their way and they jump right on board. Not saying COD is bad, just saying this is standard marketing.
u r not missing much
I am getting both so.... ya.
There can be only one!! OBVIOUSLY just kidding... lol. Same here. I'm going to buy __3 at launch then probably pick up __3 at some later date. It's going to be a great winter.
even if both are at the same quality still a mistake imo give one your full attention before considering the other so you dont get burnt out on two games at the same time :D everyone loves the feel of a brand new game purchase, why overindulge when you can spread it out
Who cares?? He is a unfunny hack.
Exactly what my first thought was...who cares?!
Wow... I wouldn't take joke advice from this guy. You really think I am going to take game advice from him? This choice is probably something he heard Louis C.K. say.
zinggggg! Dane Cook is nothing but a leech
I tend to model my life on doing the the opposite of Dane Cook as much as I can. Looks like I know what I'm buying first.
Duuhhhh....of course celebs are going to pick CoD. Do you honestly think celebs know a shit or two about games? Except for Dane Cook and the two bros.
Are we supposed to believe you know more about games then they do?
I don't know Canadian Turtle, and I think he has more game knowledge in his pubes than Dane Cook will ever have.
And when did I say anything related to that?
What a surprise. Dudebros picking CoD over BF. Totally unpredictable, I say.
Who gives a crap what celebs pick? Ten year-olds also pick CoD over Battlefield. Your point? Edit: I stand by my original statement. The vast majority of celebrities have the gaming knowledge of a ten year-old. Not that I'm taking a shot at them, but they don't exactly have the time to spend on games. CoD is far more pick-up-and-play than Battlefield, and it's got millions of players, and celebrities are only thus so long as they're popular. Add that all together, and it's kinda obvious. Otherwise, they'd be talking Arma III instead.
well im 22 and ill pick cod over battlefield
For the record, not a lot of 22 year olds really know what gaming is, either. Not gonna claim I'm that much older than you, but...
probably played the 'beta' and were turned off by all the bushcampers.... /s?
Casuals will always pick COD
Wow, i might just have to buy COD3. If Dane Cook chose COD over Battlefield that means Louis CK must have chosen COD over Battlefield years ago and I respect Louie's opinion.
i dont know why people even compare , they are completely different in nearly every possible way. One is a huge gigantic map game with tanks and jets. The other is more of a close environment/combat 4v4-6v6 type game with much more action with player vs player. I think most will always prefer the most action online twitch game over the slower team paced game.
Blame it on EA. Both Medal of Honor and Battlefield were "COD Killers" simply because EA said they were. To be honest, EA might make a COD killer eventually....however that game won't be stated as a "cod killer" and will just happen to be.
There will always be a "COD killer." If a person plays a game that makes them never want to play COD again, that is their "COD Killer." I have found a handful of games this year and last year that made me never want to purchase COD. So, I don't let anyone tell if a game is going to killer another, I just play and know it will. Onto another note about the tagline "COD killer", it's just that a tagline that helps promote sales to helps their own product. I played MoH and I loved it and I've played BF3 and loved it. But those weren't my COD killers.
Who the f*ck is Dane Cook and why should I care what he prefers? Play what YOU want.
I'm getting BF3 (PS3). I played MW3 when it was called COD4.
O.o Who the hell is dane cook and why should we care ?
Exactly the same thought crossed my mind. Never heard of him. I play with a Swedish cook though ;)
Now that was funny Bubs for making me laugh
And as predictable as the world is, sheep will buy it just because celebs like it.
It's a MADDDDD world. MADDDDD world
MW for casuals, BF for hardcore pros.
This is so true. MW is so easy to pick up and play. That's why so many casuals will play a few levels casually.. Hardcore go to battlefield, because there is SOOO much more to the game. It requires a bit of practice to be ok at.
I'm a hardcore gamer and I'm getting both. Who gives a crap who plays which game
agreed. Bubbles for being sensible. Definitley excited for both, but more excited for BF3.
ZOMG Dane said MW3 so now IM...... Not buying it.
I have grown tired of COD, but the BF3 beta has been so glitchy it's UNREAL.
I've played some really bad betas before where a majority of the glitches were fixed by launch...15 days to go. Enough time?
Im buying both but
