My opinion is that Skyrim is the better game, but BF3 is still the best looking.

Hm... didn't know there was a patch/hack out...

Still.. it is nice when game support it out of the box.

I am currently playing Saint's Row The Third..

And i think it has the best surround support yet...

No glitches.

And all the cut scenes work as they should..

Surround is one of those things..

Once you have it...

you can't go without it

I don0t think my rig (Vanessa) can run BF3, though frown.gif

hm... just looked at the specs... vanessa would run it... but it would be at min... or close 2 it...

Hmm… I have surround in Skyrim I think. I can hear things behind me and such, perhaps something is wrong with your system or I’m hallucinating? I’ll have to double check when I get home.

Skyrim has some horrible animations and wrong sounds for most blunt weapons. Combat is a little too basic. Finishing moves would be awesome if they actually gave a crap when animating them, but at least it looks good right?

MW3, played MP on a friends computer. . . It’s MW2 DLC and only worth $20 maybe!

BF3 I’ll probably come off as a fanboy but right now this game delivers. Animations are sweet, gameplay is awesome!

Played half way through BF3 SinglePlayer and couldn't stand it anymore. It's even more scripted than CoD.

All three of these games made it to my "Wish List" at the end of the summer. Being mainly an FPS gamer, I thought to myself that if I could only buy one which one would I go with would be between BF3 and MW3... I like RPG's, but only in the Winter time (seems to be when I have the most free time to actually play them).

I am glad that I decided to go with BF3 in the end, while I would love to own all three of these games, realistically speaking, I simply cannot afford them!

I am happy to read more and more about what people think about either of the games that I did not buy so to the OP thanks! It just made my next purchase a lot more clear (Skyrim) and I can wait for MW3 to go down in prices before I shall commit to it!

Personally i think all the post on this thread have been what Overclock or any forum for that mater is about..

People expressing there view without any ill intent or anything like that..

After More hours of gameplay i would say that Skyrim has the best long term playability...

But in Truth...

I have been to busy playing "Saints Row The Third"

It is so much fun tongue.gif

and yes it supports Nvidia Surround tongue.gif

My 2cents.gif

MW3:

Pros:
Good story line.
The two new mods.
Smooth experience

Cons:
Short Storyline.
Borring multiplayer.
Lack of graphical experience.
Lack of real new features.
Horrible sound. I'm pretty sure the gun sounds are computer-made.

6/10


BF3:

Pros:
Awesome Graphical experience
Fun MP.
Good sound.
Vehicles
Team work.
Smooth experience
Features

Cons:
Boring SP
Short SP
Mediocre Co-Op
8.5/10

Skyrim:

Pros:
Very fun gameplay.
Smooth experience.
Good sound.
Good graphical experience.
Tons of gameplay.
Features.
Variability.

Cons:
Game crashes. (Not much of a con since it has just been released.)
Lack of travel options.
Lack of items. (For an RPG)
Lack of real, hard Bosses. (Most of them are quite easy.)

9.5/10

Haven't played bf3 yet but skyrim has my vote. MW3 feels like an MW2 expansion with still....no dedicated ranked servers.
