Gaming-Age.com: Battlefield 3 review

"Let's face it, when it comes to war games, only one franchise rolls off the tongue (and wallets) of gamers everywhere...Call of Duty. Well the folks at EA and DICE are looking to catch some of that proverbial cash flow and direct gamers onto what they consider a more definitive and realistic war shooter and online experience that will appeal to more of a hardcore audience. They are looking to also grab those gamers, that after 7 CoD titles, are feeling like they have been there and done that with their beloved franchise. Do they succeed, or much like Battlefield Bad Company 2, give the gamers something more genuine, but still lacking in depth and execution? The answer is yes, but will word of mouth spread enough to gamers to get them to jump the "comfortable" ship they've been sailing on these many years?" (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) B+/A+

No the article right. It is COD. I think BO sold over 20 million copies. The last time i check, a battlefield game never sold that much so based on those sales. COD would be the franchise that roll off people tongue and wallets.

I agree. Increasing popularity has shot COD into infamy. "13.7 million copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops had been sold in the United States alone" "Within 24 hours of its release, Black Ops had sold a combined total of 5.6 million units in the US and UK market"(wiki)

Battlefield has its own fans but it not at the same level as COD. The average gamer would say COD, Hey I would say COD first (didn't buy BO). Its popularity is very high. Call of duty as a brand has sold 55 million units by Nov 2009.

Battlefield is popular but this popularity hasn't really shot across the gaming community until now (I agree BF2 is popular but 2.25million in a year is just not on the same level)

When did wargames become FPSers?

Wargames are tabletop strategy games. Battlefield and plays nothing like War and Peace, actually.
