No. Just no.
I have no doubt that CoD MW3 will be crap and BF3 will be epic, but you just can't compare the two game series like THAT. They are entirely different styles of games. You only compare BF series against COD because both look like RL compared to other arena shooters. By comparing BF to COD, you are also comparing BF to TF2, Quake, unreal games, And every other arena shooter out there. BF series is a very team oriented large scale game. It's the other way of doing FPS games. The game styles are so vastly different that you cannot compare them like that.
"Bigger maps! More players! More unlocks!" Who gives a crap? I don't. I LIKE arena games. I am indifferent about large scaled games. Arena games rely more on reflexes, knowledge of the map, hearing, and such. Large scaled games rely on team work, sticking together, careful advancing, thinking before doing. The two are vastly different.
IMO COD4 >>>> BC2. Why? Because I favor arena games over large scaled games. It's my preference and you have no place to say that arena games are crap just because battlefield has MORE of everything.
We both appreciate gameplay. That's the usual defence of BF players. However, they fail to see that both games have a unique style of gameplay that makes the game what it is. More players is not always better. It can just bring chaos. Larger maps isn't always good. It just makes the game gameplay different than on arena games.
I like arena games because they are so much more focused than large scale games. My favourite FPS games are TF2 and COD4. Was planning to start quake live in the near future.
So think before just blindly stating your opinion as obviously superior to other peoples opinions.
Now, saying that, I do think that they ruined MW2 and BO because of console kiddies and the way they market to them. More perks, more spammy killstreaks, more overcrowded servers, more idiots saying that you are a hacker/camper. So for sure, BF3 >>> COD MW3
(vs the good old COD games it's debatable. )
