OXM's Edwin explains why you should gun for Skyrim, not the new Modern Warfare next week. Hit the link for a rebuttal from fellow OXM writer Matt.
I can't believe a piece of rehashed sh*t is going to destroy skyrim in sales. WTF is wrong with you brainless peer pressured bast*rds!
Cause MW3 will be sold out....so the only thing left will be Skyrim? IDK.........buy what you wanna buy!
... but I wouldn't buy Skyrim forfull price on the first day either, because in 12-18 months I'll pick up the GOTY for 20 bucks orso.
@ Yi-Long Don't be cheap.
... but I rather wait a while and then spend 20 bucks on a game plus ALL the DLC, instead of spending close to a hundred bucks if I buy it now and then pick up all the DLC... There are so many great games already out and in the bargainbins, that I won't be bored anyway. So many great games are NOW in the bargain bins for only 10-20 bucks NEW, that I rather pick those gems up.
Yeah, buy what YOU want to buy. Not what Activision has made you THINK you want to buy.
Who cares what sells more? When the 7th COD game of this generation launches, Ill still be playing Skyrim. I still play Oblivion......
not really skyrims sales will not be affected by MW3 because it is safe not say that most people who like skyrim dont like MW3 and most people who do like MW3 dont like skyrim. that is also the reason why both games should NOT be compared, they have different fans and they are of different genre.
Though I agree that they are different games, saying that if you like one you probably won't like the other is an EXTREME generalization.
@Vashlion i didnt mean to generalise i just based it on the fact that they are of different genres and that fans of a certain genre would be intrested in games within that genre. im not talking specificaly im just stating that roughly that would be the case more often than not.
rehashed? and you got 8 agrees for that, anyone that says that mw3 is "rehashed" or agrees with it are nothing but trolls and never have anything to back up their comments with in saying its the "same" or "rehashed" yet skyrim has nothing new AND its a fictional game so thats even worse below, thats not naive, i have played ever call of duty since cod2 and from what i have seen of mw3 theres no way its the same or rehashed, its 100% truth
Are you serious? If you are thats hilarious.... If you like COD more thats one thing....what you just said is plain nieve.
Though I do like the MW series and am getting MW3, I honestly don't see how fictional games = bad games. Also Skyrim changed a lot from Oblivion.
This has to be the most dumbest comment I have ever read...
errm you dont have to tell me, I know that already Im probably will get MW3 too may games out at the moment and will wait for it
You can get both. You don't have a gun pointed at your head allowing to choose one or the other
what if your the son a of a drug cartel leader who's been kidnapped by a rival drug cartel and taken to the store to buy just one game to play while you wait for your ransom to be paid....... You would most certainly have a gun pointed at you...........so which game would you choose?
MW3. because I found Oblivion, Fallout 3 and NV boring and couldn't get into them. Also I don't have a son and never will because I hate kids
MW3, so i could tell someone in multiplayer to send help! D:
You were a kid at one point, how can u hate kids, so basically you hated yourself?
That's why you call an emo my friend. ;P
sorry but my money is on Skyrim
A typical FPS that focuses on multiplayer. Or a great RPG with a huge open world with over 300 hours of stuff to do. I choose Skyrim XperiaRay
It has dragons? Vampires? Werevoles? Umm i dont know if you ask me O_o
CoD is terrible for gaming.
If that's true, then so is every other sequel.
just like soda is terrible for your body yet it taste so good
ill just play both of them thank you :)
I know what you mean. I guess some people don't believe you could (or should) do that :)
I've already played MW3, it's called MW2.
You should consider attending math class...
No need, I can tell when I get the same thing re-skinned. Math has nothing to do with it.
Written by: Yoko Ono I shall make the decision myself to what do and do not buy
??? why not both? one is RPG the other is FPS.
Because apparently if you're not some rich snob you can't afford both...?(this was according to the article) I find it kinda mean that I'm a rich snob for buying stuff that involves a hobby of mine...
getting both as part of the Best Buy $100 gift Card pre-order deal. I have never pay more than $40 for a new game. There is always promotion, buy 2 get 1 free deals going on at this time of year. I just snatched up Dark Souls, Forza 4, and Uncharted 3 at Target yesterday for a total of $120.00. Shop around and look for deals and you should have all you want. BTW, Best Buy is having a Buy 2 get 1 free deal starting this Sunday FYI.
Wait, what? They are both completely different games so why would you choose one over the other? Get both if you want both. They don't have to both be bought on their respective release dates either. You could always pick one or both up later when funds are better ;)
