Bowling: MW3 vs. BF3 Is What "Games Have Been Forever"
Gamers are passionate about their hobby. It has been that way for decades.
So in the eyes of Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling, this feud between Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 is nothing new. Two big games going at it for fan supremacy...that isn't a new phenomenon, ya know. The bottom line is that you just aren't going to shake Bowling.
"Every game has its passionate userbase...we see it from everybody," Bowling said. In other words, it's hardly a rarity. And when asked if the BF3 fans ever got under his skin, he simply replied- "I wouldn't say it's annoying. It's what it is. It's what games have been forever." They couldn't even get a rise out of him when they mentioned the recent "moderwarfare3.com" unpleasantness. Bowling just repeated- "They are passionate."
Yeah, well, that's all nice and classy and everything. But it's no good for headlines. Where's the mud-slinging? C'mon, someone has to have something nasty to say about the competition. 'sigh'
