[MP1ST]Report – PC, Wii and Battlefield 3 Contributed to Weak Modern Warfare 3 Sales - Page 6

post #51 of 60
Good, because I only paid $30 for MW3 and it was a POS, and to think that Steam is charging $99 here in Australia is a joke. I found nothing new, interesting or entertaining about MW3, its just a copy and paste from previous games, and I doubt a new engine would save the series.

Thanks for clarifying that thumb.gif
The American Revolution sounds like quite a good idea. There's quite a few conflicts out there that could potentially be used.

TBH with all forms of entertainment im sick of "America" being the setting. I stil play cod4 occasionally with mates but its not as fun as it used to be for some reason. BF3 was a total flop in my eyes which made me loose faith in modern fps shooters. Its back to strategy games for me like LoL, Dota 2 and the Total war series, may buy starcraft 2 later on.

They should make a WWI shooter and have the Battle of Gallipoli as one of the central storylines.

About time the ANZACs got some love, what a brutal campaign that was. Much respect to our fallen heroes.

Would also be an incredibly immersive experience I think, trying to navigate your way up the cliff side with Turkish gun fire dropping bodies left and right

It's obvious to anyone that there are bugs in BF3 that will need to be fixed, but it is a new engine and a new game. MW3 is basicaly a Ctrl+V of Call Of Duty 4 which is almost 5 years old and yet there are still problems with it. IMO people are quick to critise BF3 even though there are issues with every game, including BF2 which turned out to be absolutely amazing and one of those titles which modern games are compared to.

The problem is they release the game every year.

Which is why they tried to force Infinity Ward into developing MW3, even though they didn't want to, by withholding money. Sounds like Infinity Ward had a lot of freedom.. rolleyes.gif

I started playing COD when the 3rd one came out and played it every release until MW3.I didn't really want to play BF3 because I didn't play BF2 and didn't know much about it.I mainly went to BF3 because of my clan members.I love BF3 and have not even played MW3 in a month or so.I think BF3 in clearly a better game despite some of the problems.

2 hours downloading last night--free Steam Trial thingy. Played about 3-4 rounds. Uninstalled after 22 mins in-game time.

Garbage.

And this is coming from me, the guy that thinks COD4 is one of the absolute best fps games ever made. Ever.

I want variety. I want gaming options. But, imo, MW3 is garbage.

And it's valid because COD4 was actually really good. Too bad since then though..
I wasted $21 on MW3 quite abit after it was released and have since vowed never again to buy another COD game.

Re: [MP1ST]Report

Battlefield and cod series have been decreacing in quality for awhile now. BF3 released way too early with lots of bugs and the lack of ingame voip is unforgivable, without voip, people just run around and do their own thing, rarily do I see people revive, give meds or ammo. I tried mw3 during the last free weekend, the low fov is headache inducing, very little has changed in terms of gunplay from cod4 and the lack of a server browser is ridiculious for a pc fps game. Hopefully war of the roses turns out with the same quality and attention the earlier bf and cod games once had because I am certainly not playing BF3 or mw3 in there current states. Until then, I will get my old school battlefield fix from indie game Nuclear Dawn, strategic team based gameplay, commander position like BF2, dedicated servers, fov slider and ingame voip.

Let us hope the console first mentality does not reach other genres, I would hate to see Diablo 4 and SC2 Legacy of the Void go down the same road as BF3 and mw3.
