I'm looking to both BF3 and MW3.

Three people either don't believe you or don't like the idea of you being honest. Personally, I don't really care for Call of Duty and love Battlefield. Couldn't care less if people want to play a different game than me though. It's supposed to be entertainment, remember?

Ser2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

This is N4G, did you not forget to leave your logic at the door, sir?

In all seriousness I do agree with you. Some people just care more about a game's profit and sales figures than the actual game itself.

I'm a gamer, not a stockholder.

@air1 - Negative, Ghost Rider. However, if you take your sales figures and shove them in the faces of others while downplaying another game due to its lack of sales, you might want to get that checked out. You could have a severe case of stockholderitus.

Do I have to be a stockholder in order to care if a game I really liked sold well?

Dee_912680d ago

No you dont
you should care if you would like to see more sequels and support
but it really doesn't matter in this case when the game is going to sell very well

Or there is people that dislike things that are "mainstream" like its better to be in the minority that like something.

Personally, i can't tell the difference between 30fps and 60fps. The only time i can tell when the frames has drop tremendously is when it dips below 20fps. Therefore, the fact that DICE went for 30fps per second and a whole lot of visual eye candy is better for me.

Mr Tretton2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

If you can't tell the difference between 30 and 60 fps, there is either something wrong with your vision, or you don't actually know the difference/don't know what you're looking at.

Considering your avatar, go play a little of the GOW games on your PS3, then, look up some youtube videos. The most popular referrence would be COD. Another good example, download the 12 min gameplay vid of BF3 off PSN. Download both the 1080p and 720p. The 1080p one is 60fps, the 720p one is 30. The 1080p/60fps one looks so much better.

Movies run at 24fps, because it looks most natural to the eye. For game graphics though, it makes them pop and makes for more fluid gameplay.

MaxXAttaxX2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

Gameplay itself is unchanged.
30fps is still a pretty natural frame rate as long as it's solid.
60fps is just added eye candy since the image is more fluid.

RickHiggity2680d ago

I can tell the difference. But since most console games run at 30 fps, I don't care too much about 60 fps

RagTagBnd4452680d ago

You can't compare movies and games because you cant compare the way a camera records video with how video games are rendered. Also there have been a lot of talk about movies being 60fps, i am quite sure the hobbit is going to be 60fps.

a_squirrel2680d ago

BC2 on pc is much better than consoles. The hit boxes are better, everything is faster. It's pretty great.

It's just a matter of personal opinion, really. More tactical gameplay or run 'n gun. I'll be playing both.

At the so called 'reasons not to buy BF3', there's barely a single point in there that should be taken into consideration.

gameguidedog2680d ago

I only get one bubble so i'll use it up now before everyone has a field day. The article in now way is a stab at Gamerxchange. The site the entry was posted on. Our entry is merely poking fun at the original author and his opinions. Everyone is and should be entitled to their own opinions. This is merely our opinion of his opinions.

Urmomlol2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

Who the hell cares what you or that other no name garbage website thinks?

Just because you have a blog no one will ever read doesn't mean your opinion is all of a sudden so important that people should waste their time reading it.

Urrakia342680d ago

Don't care about what he wrote? Then just GTFO. It's that simple. ;)

Hoje03082680d ago

And yet you either read it and commented or you commented without reading it. Pure genius.

Hockeydud192680d ago

Yea like your opinion is any more important Urmomlol. All you are is a garbage troll looking to make enemies.

consolez_FTW2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

"Who the hell cares what you or other no name webite thinks?"
Wow, that's really harsh man. I don't see you doing the work it takes to make your own site. Plus, his website has over 2,000 people that like many people like your website?..
EDIT: I just read your(urmomlol) comment history and it's the exact definition of a Grammar Nazi.

rjdofu2680d ago

Wow dude, that is just rude.

StankyChicken2680d ago

And who are you that your opinion matters so much? The ruler of the god damn world?

You can tell that the guy prefers CoD over BF, and i doubt he has every played BF2, his excuse for not being a fan of vehicles shows how much little effort was put into the article, he just made up some lame ass excuse to come up with a nice number like 5. And the last one irks me because KZ2 did this as well where you only take to your squadmates and it worked pretty damn well, spawning on your squad leader and getting info on what's happening on the battlefield before you respawn gives you time to come up with a quick plan and focus on the objective on hand as well as helping your squad instead of being some lone wolf looking to boost your K/D ratio

a game like BF isn't meant to be played like that, look at a game like KZ2/3, a guy only looking to get kills and being the top player doesn't mean anything when your team is down 3-0 because you have done nothing to help your teammates get an advantage over the enemy

Scrupuless2680d ago

I agree with the voice chat comment for the most part. having said that I couldnt disagree with your lonewolf theory anymore... people alwayslike to claim that k/d means nothing. Except that kills help you and your team clear the way to the objective, if on your team you dont have some dealy mofo's your likely in trouble .... no matter how hard you go for the objective, so yes k/d matters, lone wolfs on your team can be used to your advantage.... especially if they are killing peeps.

FragMnTagM2679d ago

Maybe K/D matters in COD, but not so much in BF3. Being a sneaky mofo and knowing the map is more advantageous.

I can play nearly any gametype in BF3 without racking up a huge K/D and still win.

trenso12679d ago

@matthewkeates i can see that lone wolf thing your talking about but it really isnt about the kills of your team functions like a team. there have been times in bc2 where i was the top player on the winning team and you know what? i was negative by 1-5 kills so i say team play > lone wolf

ismejks2680d ago

there are always some troll hiding around

iXenon2680d ago

Is this really necessary?
