I played some BF3 on my PS3 over the weekend seeing as how I got it free on PS+ (thats a lot of acronyms). I tried for a few hours, but I just can't get into it. I really tried to find enlightenment in the game by plodding through it, but its just not for me. I know BF has a heckuva following on this board and COD is viewed as the red-headed stepchild ... but for me COD is a familiar and comfortable seat I can plop myself into and have fun right off the bat.
So off I went to Walmart to get BLOPS2 w/ the first map pack for 40 bucks (I had a lot of time on BLOPS 2 on my 360 before I switched over). I just enjoy COD so much more. It is what it is, but I'm okay with it.
I found BF's pacing to be very slow, I really don't like all the work you to do to get into a game, and I really didn't enjoy all the running you have to do to try to get IN to the action, only to be sniped before I arrived and no clue where it came from so I could try to even the score.
I just ... don't .... like it.
It may be remarkably fake, but I'll take the fast pace twitch fest that is COD. Just get me in the action and let the bullets fly.
Plus, it seems that this game is VERY party dependent; its not often I can get on with many people I like to play. COD can be very lone wolf - which works for me.
