CODBO is the best so far and MW3 will surpass it.

bwazy2715d ago

I always knew you were a troll but holy **** you continue to surpass yourself.

thugbob2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

Look warprincess, CoD is trash. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is better than BO and MW2 that's how you the series is trash. Activision continues to struggle to pass CoD4.

The best online competitive multiplayer shooter this generation right now is Killzone 2. Battlefeild 3 will surpass it hopefully cuz this year FPSs have been disappointment after disappointment and MW3 will surely be part of the disappointments.

Most of the bf fanboys don't know any better.

Arnon2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

Yeah no.. I'd rate Battlefield above Call of Duty easily. I've been doing it since BF2 back on the PC.


most CoD fanboys don't know how to play a shooter.

How does thinking a particular game is the best make a person a troll? Not agreeing that BlOps is the best, just want to know why thinking so makes one a troll

"How does thinking a particular game is the best make a person a troll? Not agreeing that BlOps is the best, just want to know why thinking so makes one a troll"

Was about to say the same thing. Apparently not going along with the majority opinion on N4G means your trolling.

Don't get me wrong. Warprincess trolls in MOST stories I've encountered him/her in..but in this case, I don't see how giving his/her OPINION that BO is the best online shooter out now consititutes trolling.

By this logic, everyone who gives their opinion is a troll. Its like a democrat giving his opinion in a room thats primarily filled with republicans. The republicans may not agree with the democrat's views...but does that make the democrat "wrong"?

Constantly we hear the N4G mantra "sales don't equal quality", hence supporting the view that a game isn't automatically "good' just because the majority of PS3/360 gamers BELIEVE its good(COD: Black Ops). I agree with this. However, when a person refuses to go along with the majority opinion on N4G by praising COD..they get bashed.

^^Hypocrisy @ its finest.

COD fanatics have low standards, they can compete each other, but I don't know if you ever heard about Battlefield 3?
MW3 looks like a generation below from BF3.

killerhog2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

@bwazy she does, doesn't she lol?

I guess since English isn't HEr first language, sHE misinterpret "best" with 'worse'. Cause how else would someone nominate a game filled with: glitches, cheaters, bugs, exploits, hacks, unstable servers and laggers?? Keep in mind sHE's a 'self proclaimed' ps3 fanboy and doesn't own an xbox, so you knows sHEs not playing the bit more stable version.

My vote is still unknown though. Not really interested in mw3 or bf3 and r3 is losing my interest lately.

bwazy2715d ago

Shes a Man baby! Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Dart892715d ago

Y cuz you can't aim fo shizznit and you need the computer to aim for you??GTFO cod was only good till number 4 then after that it died.

On topic:To many to choose from.

LOGICWINS2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

Eh..proly Halo 3. No boosters. No classes. Full of features. Skill-based etc.

Halo: Reach complicated things with the class system.

humbleopinion2715d ago

Class system? All Halo Reach has is a loadout system which replaced the item pickup. Some playlists don't even have it.

But the list is pretty much spot on with the best online shooters: COD, TF2 and BC2 for class based shooters, and Halo & Gears for regular shooters.

I'd argue that some other games might had a chance, but didn't have the community and developer longevity to support them.

CrimsonSquall2715d ago

Lol not really surpassing it, the COD differences are like regular milk and chocolate milk, different tastes,but essentially the same.

Now Battlefield on the other hand...

death2smoochie2715d ago

Warprincess, the Sarah Palin of N4G.COM once again comments:

Kalowest2715d ago

"What is the best online shooter of this generation?"

It really comes down to personal tastes, some well say COD *cough Warprincess116 cough*, others will say Halo, BattleField, or Team Fortress 2. So technically their is no best online shooter.

lMHl2715d ago

I like Call of the Dead but the rest of black ops is just stupid.

HALO will always be number one in my heart (nova)

lMHl2715d ago

being a Marksmen in skyrim will be a better first person shooter then the MW3

lMHl2715d ago

slavish32715d ago

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

What kind of Shooter?

I am looking forward DUST 514 as MMO Shooter, Uncharted 3 as Action Aventure Shooter, BF3 and ArmA 3 Military Shooters.
RAGE also..

Chinner2715d ago

The article is fairly open, can be any shooter really! DUST 514 is looking to be very interesting, something to keep your eyes on.

news4geeks2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

MGO followed closely by KZ2. I would love to play some quality xbox games online but I'm not sad enough to pay for online in order to play a geeky hobby.
