So you come into a bf3 thread spouting off obscenities and demand an intelligent answer to your off-topic question. I'm not surprised at the responses.

If you want an answer, I'll give you one. Not because you asked for it, but because you deserve the truth.

Call of Duty is a game that rewards people based on getting kills (killstreaks). It prides itself on close quarters combat and fast-paced gameplay. While this may be appealing to many, as indeed sales have shown, it can also lead to play styles that are selfish, and encourage the "spray and pray" tactic as well as camping. With the recent introduction of more objective-style game modes, I have yet to see teamwork as evident as is seen in the Battlefield series.

Battlefield is a multi-faceted game that requires altering tactics based on the environment you are in. The maps are usually expansive, and require a diverse team to work together to coordinate infantry, armor (tanks, APCs), and airborne assets to achieve an objective. This forces people to rely on teammates for resupply, medical attention, anti-air, and anti-ground support because one man can't do the job on their own.

The use of Battlefield-esque tactics in Call of Duty has the potential to yield excellent results, while the most common COD tactics in Battlefield would undoubtedly fail.

These are my opinions based on empirical observations as I have played both franchises extensively.

TL;DR: MW3 is an arcade game. BF3 requires tactical gameplay and teamwork. Not to mention flying and driving tanks is totally cool.

But, this is the first thing I have gotten somewhat resembling an answer... What I am more interested in is how you arrive upon saying it takes more skill and teamwork.
to answer your question:
I prefer BF series over CoD series cuz their is much more team involvment in BF.
CoD you can just "run and gun" and actually win games.
but that kinda stuff doesn't fly with BF, if you don't do what your supposed and if you don't work as a team, you lose...and therefore you cannot progress.

don't get me wrong though...i sometimes get the itch to jump on CoD or Halo and just start decimating muthas but i feel like a win in BF is much more fullfilling and a lose is much more devastating....kinda like following a sports team

Thanks dude. I guess that is why I am drawn to Modern Warfare. I can take the entire outcome of the game into my hands regardless of incompetent teammates where as you say battlefield takes teamwork and coordination.

How do I get into Battlefield games with teams of communicating people that know what they are doing so that I can enjoy battlefield like you all do?

You wanted to know that, but this is how you ask it?

Battlefield fanboys are some of the most hateful people I see on the internet. These fanboys don't dislike Modern Warfare, they ******* hate the **** out of it, and will do whatever it takes to make you aware of that hatred.
You come in, and it appears you are calling people in here fanboys and hateful people since you ask people here how come they feel that way.

You in essence insulted everyone, use foul language, and then expect a reasonable response?

Metacritic already has some reviews

posted yet? I guess yes but one can always try.

i love how that dude picks out all the comments of rage towards him, but completely skips over every post which actually explains why they prefer BF over CoD. the only one he actually noticed was the very last one, which was a personal reason and not why 1 is better than the other.
