And enough with that Preorder cancel stuff.Its Idiotic to say the least.If anyone even considers that funny I feel sorry for them.
People are complaining about BF3 on this thread? Pre-order cancelled.
All this talk of CoD vs. BF3 annoys me. I'm not big on multiplayer but I will say this: the experience all depends on the type of people you're playing with. When it comes down to the basics, CoD and BF3 are nearly indiscernible from one another. You run, you crouch, you shoot, you throw grenades. Yes, I'm aware that BF3 offers much more than what CoD has had to offer and that's awesome - but to insist that one is inherently vastly superior than the other is just dumb. The core mechanics are so damned similar. You can't claim that the BF3 experience is this realistic, mature thing and call CoD a run-n-gun kiddie fest. Like I said, the core mechanics and overall themes between the two games are practically identical. The only real differences I see between the two games is thatk CoD likes to make some situations more Hollywood action film style while BF3 sticks to a slightly less flashy approach. SLIGHTLY. The images of our main character jumping high speed trains and surviving entire building collapses during an earthquake are still fresh in my mind
I guess my main point is that its totally unfair to act like BF3 is somehow inherently vastly more mature or realistic than CoD because at the core, the two games really don't differ. Now actual online game features and modes? Sure, its a common knowledge that BF3 offers better features. Be prepared to be just as annoyed as you'd get during CoD online matches, though - there are just as many annoying, anti-teamwork teens playing this game
I largely agree with your point. BF and COD are very similar. I think people get hung up on the 'maturity' required to play BF successfully because it is the biggest difference from COD. In COD you are a one-man army and you don't need any team tactics (though it helps for sure) to win. Given that, one could say that team-work requires more planning than going lone wolf. And if you are doing more planning, you are doing more thinking, hence the idea that BF is a more mature game.
However, with that said, I am one of those that will own both games. I'm sure both will be fun in their own ways.
