Thanks, Sir Overkill.
WEll they are two completely different styles of game play. COD is more based on an arcade style of play. They make the games fast and quick, add the perk system in there to further the fast play, then add the finished kill streaks to get as many kills as possible within a short amount of time. The BF series is more team based. The style of play is much different and graphically BF3 looks 1000000 times better then MW3. MW3 said they wouldnt be changing the engine and keeping it the same while BF3 is using the new Frost Bite 2 which is probably the best graphics engine i have ever seen. Watch a side by side video of MW3 and BF3 and you will see the difference.
The big thing about COD and its flaming is the fact that they opening admit to using a 6+ year old engine with very minor changes to it and when a new game comes out (such as BF3) it looks like garbage. I have been a BF fan since 1942 and i have also been a COD fan since the first game back in like 1999 (i played up to MW2 but lost interest pretty quickly and Black OPS was a waste of time). COD is catering more towards console's while BF3 is all about the PC community. The thing that bothers me is that COD is lazy....wont even look at bringing out a new engine and brag about how good their engine is when it looks just as good as MW1 did when i use to play it years ago.
It all comes down to your style of play, do you prefer arcade style super soldier's running around with ridiculous perks and fast game play or do you prefer longer, more challenging games based around team tactics and vehicles? As for me, i will be playing BF3 opening night....and i have a couple free days off of work where ill be using just so i can really get into it for a few days
