BF3 vs. MW3: Which Is Better?

Every time I see this anywhere online, I can’t help but chuckle. I actually made a video on this, however I know that it’s easier to click an unlike button on YouTube than to actually compose a written response, stating your intelligent argument, so I decided to make it a blog post here instead so for those of you that find this, you’ll be forced to actually write something than just click a button.

First, the gaming community has always been split on just about every topic imaginable; “PC gaming is superior to consoles”. “The Xbox 360 is better than the PS3″. “This game rules while your game sucks”, and blah, blah, blah. It’s some of the oldest trolling for years and it’s truly a boring one. If I were one of the PC elitists that went on every YouTube video, dogging all of the console FPS game play videos, am I really getting anyone to agree with me and converting people to ditch their consoles for a PC? No. Why bother then? It’s what trolls do; they have nothing better to do than to stir up shit and piss people off for the sake of their entertainment.

What further cracks me up is another argument over technical specifications, mostly from teens that have never written a single line of netcode before, about FPS aka “frames per second” or multiplayer capacity for example. I have never talked about separating conjoined twins and the ramifications of their physical and psychological effects of such a procedure. Why? Because I’m not a fucking medical surgeon for starters, and I have no place in discussing such things so I won’t. There is a reason why games aren’t 1,500 FPS and/or can’t support 40 squad mates in an online match of 180 vs. 180. If you don’t know or understand, then simply accept it for what it is because you don’t (and quite possibly won’t) understand the mechanics developers undergo to create the games that we enjoy today.

All this leads up to the topic at hand; which game is better. I mean, seriously? Is this really a valid question?  This is a question that is best answered by the person asking the question; you. What’s better; iPhone or Android? Hamburger or pizza? Ass or titties? Point is, game publishers and developers are doing their job to create a hype and buzz through marketing and sell you on their product. Whether you play on PC, console, or a mobile device, who do you think is going to win this epic battle? The game publishers and developers in the end because they sold you a product.

To summarize, buy and play what you enjoy. If you aren’t sure, then rent the game in question or play the demo prior to purchasing it. Ever notice that professional reviews don’t always stack up to your expectations? It’s the same as your best friend or family member praising a restaurant and when you decide to try it, you’re disappointed. Haven’t you bought a highly anticipated game on day one before, then later wishing you never removed the plastic wrapper (I’m looking at you, Duke Nukem) to return it? Only you can decide which is better; choose wisely.
