I would like a FPS game where it really need skills such as reflexes, perception, hearing and such. A guy who played 500 hours and got all the medals and advanced weapons should not be able to own a newbie just because he has "moar killa weaponz".

EA sale is on, $5 for battlefield games, get Bad Company 2 and give her a try. You may also want to try Battlefield 2 and 2142, they are more similar to the style of Battlefield 3. For $5 each, I would definately reccomend giving them all a try, nothing like seeing a walker come around the corner recking havoc on an advancing squad or running down the titan corridors when it's about to blow, good times... Battlefield 3142 anyone?
As for the difference in game play, Battlefield is nothing like COD and counter-strike, it's a much more team and tactically oriented game, where you have a much smaller impact on the game as a whole thanks to the 10x larger maps and 64 players (excluding Bad Company 2). Battlefield 2, 2142, and 3 all feel like you're in a war movie, constantly taking cover and slowly advancing forward with your squad, taking down enemies from afar is also much more difficult with bullet drop and weapon's recoil. All battlefield games have a lot more to do with battlefield awareness and positioning than "moar killa weaponz".Edited by OrangeBunnies - 7/31/11 at 9:34am
