These two shooters are going head-to-head this fall, so which one is your pick? Both? Neither? And what's your reasoning for the decision?
I pick BF4.Is that acceptable??
400 hrs later it isnt for me ive been craving a new fps for some time now.
I'll pick Destiny only because i'm less of a FPS gamer and more of an RPG gamer that dabbles in FPS…So Destiny seems like the game for me
Definitely getting Desiny, but I'll have other games to play as well until COD. * I love BF but Hardline looks like trash, so probably skipping that. * MCC should be awesome, but I'm more excited for a game I haven't played, then a collection of games I have. Still looks fun though. * Cod- definitely getting it, but it doesn't excite me as much as Destiny, but it looks 10x better than ghosts, so it should be fun. FPS wise, I'm taken care of throughout the rest of 2014. Then there are the other games like Smash Brothers 3ds/Wii U & Fantasy life a long with a few others that should take up some time. * + PC games as well. Don't think I'll have enough time to play all the FPS games as they release.
Neither. I don't care if I'm the only that's tired of competitive shooters.
Neither, but what's competitive about Call of doody and Destiny..o_O.
I've been completely fed up with online shooters entirely, but after the Destiny Beta I can't wait to pick the full game up:)
Both for me! :)
Yep me too. Not usually a COD fan but that Golden Gate Bridge demo really impressed me. Destiny is a no brainer, Bungie are legendary.
I was never into Halo when I had my 360, but after playing the Destiny Beta, I pre-ordered that bad boy. Fantastic game play. Also, COD looks VASTLY better than the terrible Ghosts and is reminiscent of the excellent Black Ops 2. It's an excellent time to be a gamer!
I'll take both too. Only if call of duty is split screen as usual. If not I'll pass this time.
I was gonna be cod and Destiny but after gamescon it'll have to be cod and halo. 4 games, over 100 multyplayer maps, and halo 5 beta. I'm just concern that I might not be able to finish halo this year. Maybe I'll get Destiny after u finish one of the two.
Why are those the only options? I'll be playing both.
Same here. I haven't played multiplayer first person shooters for nearly 2 years now and I'd like to get back into it. Especially Destiny, can't wait for it and CoDAW looks pretty cool. Just hope it turns out good.
Call of Duty will reign supreme once again becuz of all the people who just blindly buy it every year...Destiny will do amazing as well and it will be close but I will give the edge to COD but I think Destiny is definitely the better game.
Blindly? Some people just prefer cod over bf. if that's what you are referring .
I blindly buy it because COD has split screen and Battlefield doesn't. They are both fun, IMO. Both have their uses. I prefer one online, the other for local offline play with more people than just myself.
Doesn't really matter does it? Activision win out every way, and they're actually pretty similar games in a lot of ways. You could conceive Destiny as the sci-fi Call of Duty.
I found very few similarities between both franchises. Destiny reminded me more of Halo than anything else. I think Destiny is a nice change in direction for shooters, and if it's done well it's going to be an amazing franchise.
Or, ya know, you could conceive Destiny as Halo which it pretty much is.
Destiny doesn't really play much like Halo at all. The only similarities imo are the art style and the feel of some weapons. The pvp actually plays more like cod than halo, but not TOO much like either
I'm not talking about the PVP.
after the destiny beta, i played some cod and got DESTROYED... completely different games, and play styles.
But, you haven't played the new Call of Duty. Which has features similar levels of mobility to Destiny. That said, I didn't mean that they played the same. I just meant that they are FPS with some similarities. Obviously the sci-fi nature of Destiny lends itself to different gameplay, higher health can be accommodated because it makes sense for players and enemies to have shielding, and so forth.
CoD and BF are dead to me so Destiny it is!
Destiny.No contest for me.Something new not just another cod.
This may be a seriously unpopular opinion, But I can only afford 3-4 games until mid next year and after playing the destiny beta, I'm gonna have to go with CoD: AW. I don't think people are actually buying Destiny for Destiny, but instead are buying Destiny because it's Bungie. After some serious thought and playing though the Beta, it was nothing like what I thought it was when I first saw it @ E3 2013. CoD:AW seems like a more solid purchase overall. My game list: COD AW LBP3 The division -what other cool game I might be interested in. Probably TES: 6
I think it's the exact opposite, people will be buying Destiny because of their experience in the Beta. I think everyone who may have been interested had the opportunity to play it, and will make their decision based of their experience. COD AW looks nice but at this point I'm pretty tired of COD and I love that Destiny focuses on coop game-play.
I agree, and I also think that people tend to forget that Activision is REALLY good at making COD look amazing every year. A lot of people are fooled every year thinking "This May be the year that COD changes". If it is awesome I'm more than happy to purchase it, but nothing about what I've seen makes it look like the massive jump forward that the franchise needs. This year COD will be the wait and see if it sucks type thing. I'm more excited for Destiny and Dragon Age for this year though.Its been to long a wait for a quality RPG on next-gen systems.
I admit I'm playing destiny just because it's Bungie. What I played of the beta was disappointing, but there is just enough evidence of Bungie design in there that i think it might be worth scratching beyond the surface to find more. Looking forward to Halo and Dragon Age more though. Edit: if a tes6 would interest you there is a good chance that you would love witcher 3 :-)
Alright, I'm going to wait for some legit reviews on Destiny before I make a decision.
I'm the exact opposite. I didn't care about it being Bungie at all. Then I played the beta and was sold. Releasing the beta was the best decision they could have made. It benefited people like me and you who were on the fence. It confirmed my purchase and saved you money in the long run.
^this same here, dont care about bungee, but destiny beta sold it for me... put soooo many hours into it, and very depressed the day it went down.
How do you choose Tom Clancy over destiny? For me Destiny = dayone COD = used Win win. I support a new ip and flip the bird to Activision.
Destiny is from Activision, and even with 2nd hand COD you are making yourself a potential revenue stream as you won't be getting the extra maps and other rubbish they sell without paying. You need a new plan if you are going to upset Activision.
@Volkama Good point. It's more about letting them know I don't want yearly expansion packs sold at full retail price. Ah, and the map packs, goddamn motherfuckin map packs, one of the biggest reasons why COD is a turn off. I can assure you that is not a potential revenue stream I would even piss in.
Hype and popular opinion aside, the game is good. And I know people who weren't even concerned with it who are now buying it because of the beta.
Both for me..
I'm going to play every game that looks good to me. From Advanced Warfare, to The Evil Within and Shadow of Mordor. Destiny will be here very soon, and I'm even more excited for Dragon Age.
Patience is my horse. Going to wait for legitimate reviews on Destiny,and base my decision off of those. It's looking a little light on content atm..
Xbox One & PS3 versions for me .
Or both, duh.
Far Cry 4! Thats if they didn't screw up the MP like they did with 3. But hopes are high since they put Red Storm on MP instead of Massive. A great map editor and good game play will make everthing else take a back seat!
Neither, both are boring as heck.
Not a fan of CoD so it's destiny for me.
Yeah, Destiny is interesting for me only due to the RPG aspect, I have no interest in the competitive side of it, if COD4 was around though it would be different.
I'm getting Destiny for my ps4 me and my mates no longer play cod never got ghosts either (thank God)
I'm saving money for Witcher 3, Project CARS and Morpheus to go with it later when it's released.
Will be getting project cars as well looks awesome
I'm doing something like this, so I want neither for now. I can wait and if the games prove themselves worthy I might get them depending on if they have any pay to win crap.
Both. As long as the new COD has split screen it's going to have a place in my game library. Destiny will be great solo and for online co-op, plus I found the Alpha and Beta very fun.
Cell Rings: (message) "Your Destiny has arrivied...Will you heed its call?" /emote "Throw Hunters cape over shoulder." /emote "Load Hand Cannon" /emote "leave thread"
Both, just because because I enjoy video games
