How Many BF3 Lovers Are Just MW3 Haters?

EA says they'll steal away a good percentage of the established Call of Duty franchise when the highly anticipated Battlefield 3 hits. And in general, the popularity war between these two shooters often seems to hinge on something obvious: the widespread - and seemingly growing - hate for Activision's record-breaking franchise.

And therefore, a question springs to mind. This may sound extremely childish in tone but then again, based on what I've seen, there's plenty of childishness encircling the aforementioned debate. How many BF3 supporters are simply supporters because they despise CoD for whatever reason? How many are so dead-set against the reigning king (the fact that CoD is king is enough; kings are often roundly hated) they'll side with the opponent...any opponent? How many are just happy to be giving their money to any title that dares to challenge the almighty Call of Duty?

While it's true that what we've seen of BF3 is impressive, I wouldn't say the MW3 footage is unimpressive. And considering the spreading CoD - and Activision - hate, it almost appears as if gamers are getting downright vindictive. We have plenty of readers who aren't big fans of CoD and they seem bitter...is vindictive that much of a stretch? I almost get the feeling that gamers who never play shooters will buy BF3 simply to say they "fought the good fight" against the evil Modern Warfare 3. Maybe somebody should do a poll. I actually think gamers would be honest, too.

I'm all about BF3 and i dont care at all about MW3, however these feeling arent caused by each other.

I dont care about MW3 because there hasnt been a good COD since COD4, and i like what i see about BF3 because it looks like Dice is putting a good bit of effort into every aspect of the game, from story to online.

I'll definitely get both games, but i'll be getting MW3 when it is in the bargain bin. To me its not one game vs another, its just one of many great games this fall and one of many mediocre games that i'll be passing on.

Haha, thanks.

If MW3 looked good i'd be getting both games. It *is* possible to buy both big shooters this fall, despite what EA, Activision, and idiots will tell us.

Its like saying you wont buy NFS Shift because GT is better. Both are great, go buy both!
Except MW3 doesnt look great. Or good. Just kind of meh.

Whjen MW3 is "in the bargain bin"? I have news for you bandit-COD4 STILL isn't in the bargain binm and that game released in 2007! Sure, it's cheaper than a new game at around £20 in my local Game but for any other 2007 game £20 is EXPENSIVE!! MW2 is currently £27 at the same store so unless you're just hoping for a game at $50 rather than $60 I'd say you'll have to wait at least a couple of years mate!

I usually find the VEST deals for COD games(in the Uk anyway) are the opening week deals where the supermarkets use it as a "loss leader" just to get people in their store. I bought the last two COD releases for about £25 each on day one from Tesco and Asda-and I don't even play the game much and only have to buy them because it amuses my wife(with her November birthday and early Xmas wishes)to make me buy Activision games for her even though she knows I won't support them myself. She's so committed to her apathy it's amazing.

My issue with the series has nothing to do with this being MW3, really, and I just prefer team shooters to lone wolfers so BF3 was always more MY kind of game but I avoid anything to do with BK like the plague if left to my own devic es and feel COD should really not release in the way it does every year.I think a fairer way would be more progressive, even episodic, DLC for the games to be released every OTHER year. It woulsd allow the full games to be more of a jump from the last and make gamers feel they got more value from them too and so many wopuld buy the DLC compared to now that I'd reckon profits would actually go up(I think the same for Fifa and Madden with a roster update on the "off" year with player changes and kit changeas etc) at about £20 per episodic DLC add on. They could add the maps for MP/Zombies or more missions for Spec ops alongside a few chapters of occasional SP to dig into interesting side and back story from the main game. Anything as long as it doesn't alter the ending of the game itself.

I also think this would make people care more about their community online. As it is, sadly, I feel all the emphasis in COD is in tricking us into thinking they did just enough to warrant calling the next game a full, new , retail disc release.

I don't think it's best creatively and definitely not for value and eventually they WILL over do this and kill this golden egg laying goosey. As it stands I would NEVER buy COD map packs even if the missus BEGS and cosplays as Ada Wong for a month(well, maybe, some of the Zombie maps would be swe...NO! Stop it! Bad woman!)but am i aslone in thinking a more open and prgressive, even episodic DLC approach could lead them away from yearly full releases adn also allow more , proper R&D for the next full release and keep us all more invested in the last game and more expectant for the nmext full game AND the next DLC.

Yes, a full game is more expensive to buy but they're also more expensive to make, package and store, keep the middle retailers happy, haul about the World and so on while some better and more involving DLC would be quicker, cheaper(to make, no storage costs and no packaging and no haulage costs at all AND cheaper for us to buy while spicing up the current game's online and keeping us a strong community)and as a result possibly more profitable both short and long term for Activision and leave them less open to accusations of milking.

I think this would be a great, more gamer friendly and sustainable way of making this series and a lot of the annual EA sports titles too-it'[s REALLY annoying with PES/Fifa when, every year, you have to relearn how to play a game you only just got fluent in after having to do the exact same switch around the year before, and the year before that and...I LOVE Fifa these days but it doesn't merit a yearly update at full retail and I think there's just better ways and ways to be just as profitable while pleasing everyone out there to be used of they just take the bloody blinkers off and stop being short sighted and greedy.

Soz for the "wall "o" text".

MW3 in the bargain bin? You will be waiting a while, MW2 just recently went down to $39.99 and it's still 59 at some retailers. COD games don't generally drop in price until the new version comes out.

I loved the BF series before I ever hated the CD/MW series.

I'm sure there are quite a few that simply jumped on the bandwagon that is BF3 but if only a few of them try the game out I consider it a-okay in my book.

Kinda funny how my least "hardcore"/worst gamer friends flock to the MW series while the friends I love gaming with were there with me during BF2/Tribes/TFC/CSS/SC.

I feel similarly... I mean I bought the early COD's, but after I played BF2, I thought to myself this is far better and enjoyed it more.

Anyway, I expect BF3 to be huge and very enjoyable as well :)

I'll admit this: the main reason I latched onto BF3 was because it seemed like a great alternative to CoD, but as I wrote in the other article, I'm tiring of all the BS. I'd be willing to say that it was a severe dislike for the CoD franchise that led me to that decision, but I realise now that I was wrong. BF3 may look better, be a bit better, but EA has killed my enthusiasm for the game. I'll likely end up playing both, but I can't see myself buying either anymore.

I really dont hate cod, its great in its own way. I like the modern warfare series more then most anything made by treyarch. My only problem with COD is Activision. You can tell they couldn't be less interested in the customer or the product as an art form.
After playing the alpha trial for BF3 i can tell you that that game is going to kick ass becasue its 1.) So damn pretty with FB2 engine. 2.)They are actually doing outside testing
and 3.) Feedback with the game is always listened to by DICE/ EA .

I can't imagine anybody who doesn't like shooters buying BF3 just out of spite, but I may be giving some gamers too much credit.

I, for one though, don't have anything especially against either CoD or BF (or even Activision), and as a guy who doesn't really like shooters, I'll pass on both of them.

I had a blast with battlefield bad company 2 I have rarely enjoyed cod. the multiplayer in cod just doesn't fit my playstyle in the slightest. I'm a very patient and calculated player. Cod irritates me only because it blinds could be hardcore gamers from greater games. The last thing this industry needs is someone sucking the blood out of its consumers, and continue to get away with forcing another outdated installment. Even worse than that, people are brainwashed into thinking this is the best gaming has to offer and that couldnt b further from the truth. I have reason to dislike only because this is all based on first hand experience. I've played every cod since cod 4 and I've stopped trying to enjoy it because I just can't.

If I want to get into a war game, i think i'd want to be closer to a simulator (though I know it's still way off) than a Hollywood war movie. So it would be BF3 for me. The fact that I hate CoD is just icing on the cake.

Yep, PC version. It's...not what I expected. I thought there would be more freedom, only played the first parts of the story mode though, maybe more later. But it's a lot of taking care of the tribe, honestly I've have been happy with just a world sandbox than a story with this one. lol But it controls relatively easy, though with slight, frustration with say, how you want sand to be shaped or places when you're putting it down.

For me, I simply don't like Activision. They seem ignorant of their past mistakes and they're just outright greedy. It's important to run a business correctly, but Bobby-boy just doesn't care about the company's public image with games (based on many of his past comments.) Now I'm not jumping on the BF3 wagon just yet. It looks impressive, but it's going to need to absorb me in ways that many recent FPSs have failed to do. (I discount Portal 2, since that's more of a puzzler than it is an FPS.) I'll side with BF3 if I'm truly impressed with it, but we've got some time before it releases yet.

i loved CoD4, but it went downhill from there. Then BFBC came out, it was different, but i loved it. played some BF2 at a friend's house, got somewhat hooked. From there, BF 1943 and then BFBC2. Dice just knows how to make a hell of a shooting game.

Wow, why all the hate for CoD? I mean, I'm not obsessed, but it's still a great pick up and play game with friends.

It's probably a society thing, people don't want to differ from the majority opinion and follow it anyway, eventually training themselves to think in a certain way.

I like Battlefield too, but CoD has always been more accessible to me. And in all honesty, the game still has a lot going for it; sales don't lie. People are buying this game for a reason.

Perhaps my only vice with CoD is the fact that other games are trying to emulate its form, or are being overshadowed by its success.

im really starting to get sick of the COD V BF3 articles, i mean seriously enough is enough!
TBH im really tempted to get the opposite.
1 because IW actually have the maturity and confidence to stay mum about it, and 2 they actually have praised BF3.
MW3s community manager was seen playing BF3 for a hour backstage today and he loved it!
now wheres DICE praising MW3?
EA are doing to BF3 what dan greenwalt and his fat mouth did to forza 3.
i was really looking forward to getting it, but because of his constant sh*t talking i did not get it.

if they can raise enough fuss to get some cod players to say 'hey, maybe there's something to this other game, let me give it a try' then in EA's eyes, they've won a major battle. if they get them hooked, even better in their eyes.

Its really the only reason why EA is being pretty vocal about it, as annoying as it may be. Remember, thats EA, not DICE doing all this talking.

Same reasons why activision isnt really acknowledging what EA says, simply because by doing so, they will draw attention to a competitors project

I think it's good enough, u will probably do okay, maybe some lag though, Since it's an HD game, I don't think u will get HD graphics out of it cause of the graphics processor. If I had the same CPU as u my best bet would be buy the game for the PS3. I know wish the consoles supported up to 64 players.

I ran a google search on your Acer and no, don't even think of getting BF3 for it. First, your integrated 8200 is poo poo. Second, your desktop appears to be a micro-ATX, or hybrid thereof, so don't count on having a free PCI-e or even the ability to upgrade your PSU to accommodate an upgraded video card. I suppose if u went with a passive cooling solution that required only the 75watt draw off the pci bus, that would work. But, like I said, u probably don't have a free pci-e slot anyway.
Long story short, get it for PS3 or invest in a real gaming computer. U can build em for cheap ;)

Ive played every single BF game and COD, and so far BF exceeds over COD and I expect BF3 to do the same. I wish I had a PC capable of running BF3. 64 players, that's too epic!!!

Personally I'm buying BF3 because I felt let down by MW2. Then again BF3 just seems like the better game in general. The better game will be the one that gets my money and that's it. If by some miracle (it would be) that MW3 proves to be better than BF3.....then I wil buy uncharted 3 and Skyrim and rent MW3 sometime in the distant future:). Sorry Activision :P

Why? Why is it always SO easy to spot those who gravitate over from N4G?

If you're here to spam CoD propaganda Stang, don't bother to post.

I have no problem with Joystiq. We're actually similar in a lot of ways.

The difference is that people put weight with their words, by showing that they have actually taken the time to analyze the pros and cons of both games, your original comment was what seemed to me to be a blatantly bias statement. Obviously others thought the same as well, plus I think the point of this Article was to explore the idea that the title is offering, and your comment doesn't facilitate conversation, it kills it and the trolls come to feast on the remains.

On topic, I just bought BFBC2 a couple weeks ago and was shocked at how much I enjoyed the gameplay compared to COD, it was refreshing and felt more tactical, I value that and I believe BF3 will bring it even harder than any previous DICE endeavor. That's why I'm onboard.

To all of the Battlefield fans hoping that Battlefield takes the title from Modern Warfare 3, I offer you a warning. You guys all claim to love Battlefield because its fanbase is not full of "whiney twelve year olds and hackers" but thats exactly what would happen if BF does sell more than MW3. Those types of players have nothing to do with how good of a game MW is. These people just move from one popular title to the next and despite what you guys think, they will move to BF and ruin your experience too. I loved COD4 when it came out and still do but the franchise blew up after that with everyone and their mom deciding to play the game, and the hackers werent too far behind them. If you're a true BF fan and truly enjoy the gameplay as it is now, you should hope that is doesnt outsell MW3. That being said, as a MW fan I honestly hope BF outsells MW3 but I simply dont think BF has the fanbase to outsell a franchise thats outsold the records it set two years in a row,

I think this is getting old .. BF and MW are different play styles , now with that being said im getting mw3 i don't like vehicles in battle. Im old school where its you and your gun and your team going to kill the other team or holding a point ext.

I'm going to have to disagree with you here....

I've played both titles along side each other and I do prefer the CoD series.

I only play multi player (I do play the single but only for an hour or so to get a feel for the weapons) in both BF and CoD series.

BF servers admins tend to suck if you run a ranked/honour server your not allowed to put "you can't use this weapon"/"no you can't put this item in these locations"

I'm not saying CoD server admins (except MW2 where there wasn't any) are perfect but they are fairer then the BF ones.

Ok that’s not a reason not to like BF but I'll continue.

Weapons:
BF weapons suck - I normally play sniper and to be frank BF sniper rifles are too unrealistic. To me, it’s the downfall of the game. Even as far back as BF2/2142/1942 that simple didn't function as a rifle should. Always failed to register a hit and if you managed to actually hit someone it was pure luck if it actually killed them (even with headshots)

CoD weapons aren't perfect but at least when you snipe you can kill (if its a kill shot and not a shot in the hand/foot) there are some weapons that are overpowered but even then its more skill then just "SPRAY&PRAY". The weapons are far far FAR better. Any gun can kill anyone with a headshot, which for a modern game where people want realism you can't really fault them.

Game play:
BF I've always found it to be team based although you find the "team" is defending its the solo guy (1 or 2) that will find a way around the opposing team and complete what ever it is that needed to be done and this works.
Then again it only take 1 person that’s good in chopper to screw a full team over due to there speed and firepower, if your on the receiving end of one of these such player (normally with a joystick/flight controller) there's very little to be done :'(

CoD in this series there is some "team" play but it is mostly small groups (1-2-3 player) that will complete the objective/defend the objectives but that's not to say that there’s no large team battles like BF.
Unlike BF, the CoD maps are smaller where the BF ones are epically big in some cases and just big in others.
I do enjoy both games and I will be buying both then they get released.

CoD went off track for a lot of people in MW2 especially for PC users. Black Op’s wasn’t amazing either but it was a good game.
BF2 when released wasn’t that good either.

Conclusion – People will find faults in both games, there will be glitches, there will be bugs, there will be hackers.
If you prefer very team orientated game play and big maps then BF is for you
If you prefer small group play, fast action but without having to run the world to get anywhere then CoD is for you


Sorry for the big post

Im going for Battlefield for one reason.... 64 player online on the PC. It'll be my first time gaming online on PC but I have to try it. I was bummed when everyone went to 24 player on PS3.




Also BF3 to me always looks like BFE and that just doesnt sit well.

I will buy BF3 and hopefully get MW3 for christmas. Black Ops and BFBC2(started both about the same time) were both fun for me. The fun with BO's ended once I prestiged then the game was pretty useless to me and I traded it in. I actually prefered Medal of Honor to BO's but portions of the MP needed to be refined but the SP experience was the best of any FPS I have played in a long time. I still play BFBC2 and feel that it is to BO's. I prefer the larger maps, vehicles, bullet drop, and team play. They both will have their place and I will have fun with both of them, but I have a feeling that BF3 will have the staying power for me where MW3 will be a use it, abuse it, dumpt it kind of thing
