i own and play both actively. Have 160hrs in bf4, 117 in cod ghosts.

I have always been a battlefield boy as aposed to cod as i originated from all the original bf series.

BF is always a team game, sure you can lone wolf it up but the help you get communicating as a squad and working together to achieve victory far exceeds some modes in COD.

COD team death match is a show of skill and rarely has a team working towards winning and rather is always about yourself being on top. Domination mode is very similar to conquest mode in bf but of course with no vehicles or ticket bleed rate and IS team based and can be fun working together.

Most stay away from COD due to its rep with team death match and mostly the ppl who boycott it on the forums after 1hr of multiplayer in tdm mode. Battlefield will always be my number 1 game for team play and overall satisfaction as it just offers so so much more and the progression system is very fun e.g. all the assignments and unlocks and now leaderboards/divisons for classes/weapons and everything.

I still really enjoy cod as i enjoy the fast paced gameplay as aposed to battlefield as sometimes i just don't enjoy all the bf maps as the action can become stale and i really enjoy the killstreak awards in cod especially the maniac smile.gif

each to their own though and your choice to make.

if u like open map vehicle action: BF
fast paced infantry and killstreak rewards: COD

thats my opinion

Cod ghosts is unplayable... the game is so horribly optimized that it doesn't matter what setup you have it's going to run like crap. The player base has died exponentially since release and will probably be completely empty by fall. Don't buy it.

On the flip side, I'm having tons of fun playing bf4.

I used to be all cod and thought bf was boring. Since then, cod died after mw2... Such awful games after it.

Oh and titanfall... I was really looking forward to it as the REAL infinity ward was making it but... After the beta I wasn't dissapointed per say... But I was skeptical as to how long I could actually play it without getting bored. Only time will tell I guess.

I've been playing a fair bit of BF4 recently , not really come across any of these bugs really. Sometimes start without a gun in my hands and it takes ages for the matches to start (install BF4 on a SSD !)

Counter strike GO is still the best online shooter but BF4 a close second for me

skywarp00 thank you for your reply. This info is exactly what I am looking for... and maybe CoD has won my attention due to me wanting to play as a lone wolf. thumb.gif

You are quite the cynic, though I greatly appreciate the feedback. redface.gif

Interesting opinion I will have to look into CS:GO... which I am starting to think may be different from CS:Source smile.gif

I kid you not, you will get frame dips below your refresh rate regardless of what settings you have. It's unplayable for a twitch shooter. Ghosts is awful.

If you want to play a cod get bo2 or something... I think people kind of liked that one at least.

I still play mw3... Cuz it kind of feels like mw2, and actually has decent tdm lobbies still.

Interesting concept with buying a previous version of CoD... particularly I would like the most popular version of CoD for PC at the moment...

EDIT

I have not yet purchased any title and I am still looking for my next purchase...

Here is a little example of what I'm saying. Notice how MW2 was hitting the same peaks as Cod Ghosts release day, three years after it's release. BO2 isn't much better, but as of right now (you can organize by months, weeks or days to see this) it's trading blows with ghosts in player count, and since it's been out for almost 2 years, I would say it's population is going to hold much longer than ghosts.

Regardless of the poor optimization and awful performance... If you want people to shoot at, and you want it to be COD, get BO2.

*edit*

Looking at gametracker, COD 4 actually still looks pretty populated...
