    To be fair, Blops was a lot better presented in both the SP and MP side compared to MW2. In fact, it's the game that really pushed Treyarch into a better developer standing over Infinity Ward (pre everyone leaving up and that drama) in my mind.

    It's actually not "beefed up" given how it's scaled back a LOT that was in MW2, which is a GOOD thing since MW2 added far too much bloat and junk. I'm sure the younger crowd was bitching to high hell and back that they couldn't get their omgnuke but I loved that it was scaled back to such a measurable degree. It made the MP enjoyable again. Not fantastic, but at least enjoyable.

    Would I purchase CoD if I didn't get it for free? I don't know. I honestly don't know. It's enjoyable to an extent, but certainly not for $60 as they've been lately.
    Yeah, Im doing the same (though Im going to have to foot a $120 bill unless I go for an "Evil copy") as I want an end to this story arc. Probably going to have a look at multiplayer, but if you check my stats on Steam, I have had very little time one it, hell, I havent even prestiged once because I just Cant be screwed to play it.

What really gets me in this case isnt even you, but those that try to compare it to another game and say how that game is so awesome, yet they dont play it anymore and/or that game is not as awesome as they believe it to be.

    People beat on CoD and want to compare it to BF, but thats not a good way to do it. As I said a number of times before that people cant help it though as they generally compare with only what they know. I know its hard to believe, but some think BF is dumb and boring. Playing a number of games, I can see why they would think that.

    I don't own BlOps either. Just havent bought it (and apparantly a core 2 duo isnt enough to play it...). I just realised though, that I havent got any of the Treyarch CoD's despite the fact that they are "Kinder" to the PC community than IW. Though, that sounds a little futile that statement. We all say things because we want to seem like we care, the fact is most PC gamers want the best for the community, but dont really care and think more for themselves. its starting to lose its effect.

    The thing with "hating" CoD is this.

    People claim they hate CoD and condemn it to hell and back but they still buy it anyway. Or they still find a way to play it anyway. It's a very small number of people who not only proclaim they hate CoD but also refuse to ever play it and stick to it.

    As for me? I enjoy the SP once in a while. Black Ops was enjoyable. MP since MW1 has been lacking in all games but Blops came the closest to being the most enjoyable for me.

    Not looking forward to MW3 in the slightest but we all know it's going to sell a ton and probably break records again. And if it's anything like MW2's MP, it's going to be a spammy fest of perks out the ass. I'll play the SP just because I want to see this damn story arc end.

    Its not being cynical, its just people dont look at what they posted in the past or complained about. A good majority of PC gamers hate CoD. The thing is they only make up 7 to 10 percent of the market share.

    That aside though, someone complains about CoD because they wear the BF goggles thinking BF is so great, yet post after post after post shows how it is. Both games have some advantages and nice features and we all know that BF3 is taking some of them.

    Once BF3 comes out there are going to be posts about how its BC2/CoD or how its a console port as well as complain about how they are board with it and the game is dead unless the fix something or add something.

    Maybe I am being cynical

    Well you just seem a bit more negative lately... Then again, you were the same around MW2's release when I was one of the few who had high hopes for it (then were crushed with the later announcement...)

    I think its just more me feeling like everyone is working against me... and is arguing with me (though if it is an argument, I quite possibly started it, just havent realised...)

    Okay, Ill add "In the online circles I've been a part of". Wow Crunch, you seem a bit more cynical than usual...

    Though I don't know why I am compelled to argue my point here though, I didn't say majority, I said tons.

    (and tons of other people, much of whom I agree with... to a point. After a while it seems they are just hating on it because thats the cool thing to do now... F**king hipsters...)

    Ill pick this up just to prop my copy of BF3 up with.

    Well sure, compared to CoD, Battlefield has more teamwork. Thats going to happen as the kits are designed to almost force a player to do teamwork. Im also talking Battlefield, not Bad Company.

    The thing is that Battlefield is designed around teamwork and a rock-paper-scissors aproach and even though its setup that way, it doesnt seem to happen that way most the times. Im sure we all have seen (or done it ourselves) where there is a tank whore ripping up your team and yet the entire team either avoids the area the tank can get to or they keep running into the tank without the correct kit. Finally someone dies and come back (notice, not revived) as an engineer or Spec Ops to blow the tank up. Sometimes that person dies and has to spawn again as they ran out of ammo (notice, not given ammo) or because they are singled out by the tanker.

    No teamwork involved. You die a few times to try to take out the tanks and then go on with the gameplay. Once in a while you get some revives or supplies, but it wasnt often. Now in BF2, you were given medkits a lot because of the instant health and sometimes revives, but thats because thats easy points.

    Thats just one example.

    Actually, I found there is more teamwork in Battlefield 2 than in the latter 4 CoD installments, even in IO. We were actually spotting for enemies while trying to take a point in Karkand, and telling eachother about dangers such as claymores and such.

    that being said, its alot more than expected, but still not enough.
    I agree, I think it was rubbed off from COD players.
    Also I think the reason why there are not so much team play base in BC2 is because the maps were small and had a lot of choke points... plus there isn't a place in BC2 where you cannot be seen sneaking in.

    It wont change anything even if they do come over. If you are thinking teamwork, there wasn't much in BF2. Many say otherwise, but most those people either had a server of their own or were in a clan or had a set group of friends they always played with.

Both publishers have done an excellent job tearing down their fanbase and alienating the different groups of gamers to the point many don't see a difference between one franchise over another.

    Is there anyone reading this that has a copy of most Battlefield OR CoD games and not the other and didnt put a lot of hours into them?

    COD can only fool me so many times now. Shame on them. I will not be buying the next installment of COD. I will be to busy playing BF3.
