Dethroning a Giant: Battlefield vs. Call of Duty
There have been few success stories as great as the one surrounding the Call of Duty series. Climbing from a pit of shooters to claim the top spot is no easy feat in this generation of gaming, but the Modern Warfare series has sold millions on the idea of chasing others around a small map and shooting their faces. Over the recent years Call of Duty has developed a new way of playing shooters that involves what most gamers like to call, twitch shooting. For some it’s all they need, for others it’s a poor excuse for exciting gameplay. I happen to fall into latter category, but it’s hard to deny that Call of Duty has a strong purpose and a high fun factor.

The story is too old to be commented.

Loved the 1st and the 2nd (Battlefield) and can't wait for the 3rd one :)
Let's see Battlefield what's serving us first and if COD doesn't sell as much as they predicted they will take a year off maybe and think of something new

I didn't read the article but everyone knows that Battlefield is the best FPS. Therfore, it doesn't need to dethrone anything when its king of all FPS :-)

It does when it comes to sales.

I like COD for a quick pick up and play multi-player game, but I do prefer Battlefield/ MAG type of games where you have to think and use tactics to play right.
Killzone is another multi-player game where you need to use tactics to play right. With the game changing from search and destroy to team deathmatch to other gametypes in one match it makes you think and do whats best for your team, as you have to play each mode differently. I have run into people who just run round killing and not know what to do, these people aren't getting as much fun out of the game as they could.

The only FPS I think where if you are not tactical you cant win or do good is MAG. I used to think battlefield was but MAG is truly tactical. I agree that COD is a pick up and play but killzone and battlefield are tactical and pick up and play games. You can play tactical one match and do good or not and still do good and have fun.

Lets get it back to its roots shall we? enough of the comedic Bad Company with sluggish movement, sluggish aiming and lack of prone!

We also need health meters back,this "bloody screen" thing with health recharge kills all use of a medic and teamwork and encourages camping.

It doesnt need to be like COD to beat it, It needs to be its own game and REAL gamers will love it for that while the casual crowd hop on the next annual low quality re skinned COD.

I agree...when I first experienced the "bloody screen (so real)" in the bad company 2 beta, I already considered that a negative to the game because its a copy from Call of Duty....
