[PC gamer]EA: Battlefield 3 is “flat out superior” to Call of Duty - Page 10

Have none of the porting issues battlefield has

Actually be decent at level 1 instead of grinding your way through the levels to unlock better weapons


And tons more.

Some people prefer COD, some BF

That's it. The fact that BF has bigger maps and more players doesn't make it better. In my eyes, it makes it worse for my preferences. I like arena gameplay. That doesn't mean I should mock battlefield either. Why are you guys mocking arena type games? The OCN mentality is "more = better" without even looking at the quality of the thing.
I'll agree with you that game play is up to personal taste more than anything.

I would like to point out though that, You don't usually get sniped unless you're sitting on your butt. As long as you keep moving it's typically not a problem because most of the snipers are horrible. XD

Also I personally like the ability to unlock weapons. You can be a good player with the base guns, the stats aren't *that* screwed. It's just that the later weapons give you more options for your play style. Which I like, it keeps the game fresh.

Exactly. Id say that Plants vs zombies is "Flat out superior" to Call of Duty as well. Doesn't mean its hard to be superior to a terrible game.

Millions of us can secretly be enjoying the game for years, while they're playing the next annual installment, CoD 9 Guantanamo Bay.
Clearly you didn't play any of the other Battlefield games (sans Bad Company). Ever since they introduced voice chat there have been a plethora of whiny little twerps squeeling through their microphones. Such a horrible, horrible sound.

I kinda wish EA rose above the childish name calling and "i'm better than you" attitude.

Well, CoD will continue to dominate the Mainstream Console Gamers, But Battlefield Will prevail in anyhting Else

I do believe BF3 will be better but this marketing is just idiocy
