you want realism and tactical gameplay you need to play arma 2. arma 3 will be out next year. both mw3 and bf3 are arcade frag games.

BF3 is a new game... MW3 is a spit shined version of MW2. It's ported directly from console to PC without much in the way of change. Graphics in BF3 are quite good where MW3 is still using the same engine they have been for over five years. Its dated and, well its dated that should say enough. MW3 is going to be more friendly to the non experienced player, where BF3 will take a larger learning curve.

It's really apples to oranges. I'm sure that they are both good games, but i choose to support the company that supports PC gaming and not just making stuff for the consoles and using PC players as an afterthought.

Biggest differences for me are:

- Can spawn on squad members in BF3
- BF3 has huge maps with lots of players (though I prefer 32 player servers even on the large maps)
- Can blow up walls or buildings in BF3 with C4, tanks, RPGs, etc. Very useful for tactical entry of a building (i.e., throw up a C4 on the wall, and me and my squad mates just got a new doorway).

MW3 is the same game, minus all the above stuff.

Except for the fact they switched their development from PC to mainly consoles ........
post #46 of 55
but did they use PC players as an afterthought or did they actually make a game that utilizes a PC? A game that can function better on a PC than a console?

BF3 is the girl you take home to mom

MW3 is the girl you have a one night stand with (but looks exactly like the girl you had a one night stand with last night, except with lighter brown hair)

Each has it's own place and time. Buy both and play the one that floats your boat for that day...

Mw3 is fun to play if your with friend and just want to hop in a fast 6-12 minute game, where as BF3 is a game where your sitting for a long time. The average game i could say is 20-30 minutes. As others have posted it is more team oriented. If your like games where you can just join in and start guns blazing go with MW3. If you want a game more strategic and has more of a power struggle of who will win go with BF3
