GameMarshal.com has pegged Battlefield 3 against Modern Warfare 3 in a mock US Presidential Election. They turned to data from "Google Insights for Search" to determine if an election was held today, which game would become our next President.
How much you want to bet MW3 fans told BF3 fans that the election is tomorrow? That's a classic Red State trick. Connecticut and Florida BOTH need recounts, and no fair getting the Supreme court to stop them.
Believing the election is on a new day.. that's a classic blue state failure ;) I am BF3 and I demand a recount in Texas!
Same with MA!
would be interesting to do this for Europe and see all the countries but too much work
I can tell you BF3 gets the crown in Eu.
I did it for my country its 54% for BF3
Remember blackops sold 5 million in california alone. California by itself can put a huge hole in koticks ship
I demand a recount in Texas as well!!!!
Yay my fellow Kansans voted BF3.
mississippi knows what's up
Well I think BF3 is forward thinking therefore it's a democratic party and MW3 is more corrupt make it the republican party. I always vote democratic but I'm on the fence because the supposedly the console versions will be way inferior to the PC version of BF3.
lol this is sorta cool. BF3 FTW!
Now let's do Canada, all the provinces would be blue :D
Ontario for sure :)...it's pretty blue here!
MW3 should be blue, since it's for the sort of people that would be neo-populists. Equal lack of quality for all! Yipeeee! Anyway, I see my state has voted MW3. Figures. Crazy IL.
If BF3 does even half as well sales wise as Modern Warfare 3, It's really a victory for BF3 when you consider how've they pushed their game to be a competitor this time around.
At least they got it right and made BF3 the blue color. More progresive and less set in their old ways. So did BF3 at least pull out the Popular vote? Just looking at the key battleground states it appeared that BF3 could have gotten the popular vote in those states alone... wondering how the actual full count turn out looked like? Also, we have to understand that not one person one vote in this sampling. So hard to use the electoral format in this case.
"In 2000 there were a total of 538 electoral votes available with 270 needed to win. Republican George W. Bush, with 50,456,002 popular votes won 271 electoral votes. His Democratic opponent, Al Gore, won the popular vote with 50,999,897 votes, but won only 266 electoral votes. Bush was elected president." Goes to show that more people might want one thing but the Electoral College system can make you loose the election. Glad gaming isn't an election process.
Haha this thing is cool!
They should have redone the electoral votes to mimic the amount of players in each state. Then this would have been a lot more interesting
well im proud of my state BF3. lol
My state sucks... Lol Texas FTL!!
Rick Perry is why it sucks :p Yes, im from texas.
Not surprised that MW3 won. It's clearly the better game.
in US you have to register to vote, how stupid is that
You do in the UK too.
No you dont! As long as you are a registered uk citizen then you can vote
@davekoas When do you register to be a UK Citizen. According to http://www.electoralcommiss... When you're 16, but you can't vote until you're 18 just like in America I registered for the Draft when I turned 18 and that also "registered" me to vote. According to http://www.aboutmyvote.co.u... You need to be registered to vote in UK elections and referendums
@Sabian You have to regester if you are from another country, those born in england are registered via british birt certificate. which means the time you reach the age of 16 you are automatically on the electoral roll, which means you are able to vote So my point stands correct i think you will find
Yes, how ridiculous...instead, we should just let anybody walk up and decide who the leaders of our country will be.
If you can't figure out how to vote or find it too troublesome to register, then I fear what your vote will be!!!
"in US you have to register to vote, how stupid is that" Not very...
MW3 would mop the floor with bf3
MW3 being the messy old person that it is WOULD have to use something new and fresh as BF3.
Except 10 year olds aren't allowed to vote so I doubt so.
*OH SNAP!* Lol facts ftw!
Mop the floor? Doubt it... but it could pull a Bush and get enough votes in the right places to squeek one out. American public can really be ignorant and vote for the hype versus the substance. (of course you could probably say that about a lot of countries)
Battlefield wants a re-count because of those hanging chads in Florida
BF3 takes it, not even close.
Yeah, BF3 where I am! TAKE THAT MW3!!!!
mw3 rules!!! BF3 down
BF3 rules!!! mw3 down
Another military FPS rules! Gamers down
I think BF3 may have started their smear campaign to early..which could have cost them. lol
Ohio polled for MW3, not surprising since all the people with their Wii's and 13 year olds are going crazy over it. Although I will differ from the oblivious. BF3 day 1 for me.
I live in California and I think I may have pushed BF3 ahead by myself. I have been obsessed with learning everything about that game since the Beta was announced with MoH back in Aug. haha
Virginia for Battlefield 3? Hell yeah.
huh my state voted for MW3 go figure thats Texas for u.
You better get that pitch fork and torch ready Icy! ;-)
lol right, I mean its fine I don't care too much really.
and this kids is how Bush won the presidency.Just remember that not always the best thing wins. Just the one with the most funding.
lol i am really looking forward to play battefield but i might actually try this call of duty
If you're going to "try" Call Of Duty, go back to COD4MW. That was the best one, and gave it so many fans and hope. Then Treyarch just took the engine and did whatever and drove their games into the ground, but MW2 is OKAY, but it is boring seeing the same game engine for the 3rd time and unchanged since the 2nd game. But this 3rd one, I wouldn't venture in to. It's just being made for money, not for the game.
why there are so many MW3-hateboy? if you hate the game, don't read the article. don't post a comment just ignore it. then mw3 is gonna die like guitar hero serise. mw3 haters never understand the mechanism how game will be doomed. how stupid kids. maybe $60 is too much for kids. that's why they bitching buy both. or buy one you prefer. and just shut the fuck up kids
Ok dad I will tell my friends over at N4G to stop saying bad words on MW3.
LOL you guys kill me. Listen @tunytung people are going to be people. No matter what they are going to bash one or the other. I prefer the Battlefield series but saying MW3 sucks is a little harsh. I mean look at the numbers of sales this game has brought in, no matter how you slice it guys the numbers are impressive!
Kudos on a fun idea/take to the typical VS rhetoric we here for this game versus that one.
Georgia, you done me proud.
It's nice to see bf3 getting so much attention and I'm sure the votes will go more to bf3 further down the year.
Louisiana...I am proud....Also California....SO VERY PROUD!
... too funny! XD
This is The Macgregor. and your polls are wrong 1. no one played with this pole. 2. The state of nc would never approve for bf 3. As President of North Carolina thats right i said F*N President. I didnt approve these votes :) Sponsered by The Macgregor of mcgregahs llc. 2011
