The Battlefield 3/Modern Warfare 3 Fight Is Already Tired
Man, are we really going to have to live through four more months of this? I'm not sure I can take it.
I play just about every shooter that comes my way, and it isn't always because work demands it. I really like my shooters and there's no doubt I'll play through and enjoy both Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Will I be blown away? That remains to be seen but I have high hopes. My biggest complaint right now centers on this constant war going on between the two blockbusters...and I'm sorry, but I'm already bored.
"Our game uses Frostbite 2!" "Our game runs at 60 frames per second!" "We already made a game better than Call of Duty; it was called Battlefield: Bad Company 2!" "We'll produce the most popular video game in history...again!" "Battlefield 3 will give you the ultimate single-player campaign!" "Modern Warfare 3 will once again redefine multiplayer!" "Look at this gameplay!" No, look at this gameplay!" ...'yaaaaawn' How often can we talk about this? And for how long? Really?
The worst part is that both Activision and EA are well aware of the buzz, and continue to fan the flames for the sake of higher potential sales. These headlines just aren't going to stop and unfortunately, if we wish to remain current, we'll have to keep up with them. However, that being said, I'm not about to post every last piece of "news" concerning either game; the majority of it isn't actually news, anyway.
