Battlefield not looking back

While I always knew there was a healthy rivalry between Battlefield and Modern Warfare camps, I thought the Warfare fans would come out and back their game. Modern Warfare 2 only broke and set new sales records after its release.

I never would have guessed it would be such a landslide in favor of Battlefield. It goes to show that you can only spend so much time on the top before you either start to lose your edge or people start asking for something new.

Could this be a sign that Modern Warfare fans are looking to abandon the franchise? Or, like Madden, will Modern Warfare just be the default game that everyone buys every year while praising its competition? Or have Battlefield fans just been flooding this poll to skew the numbers?

Numbers can be deceiving

If I pick up one of these games this year it will be Battlefield 3. However I think the results of this poll can be deceiving because "hardcore" gamers are standing up to battle the popularity of Modern Warfare. (Why, I don't know. There are more important things in this world to worry about than the popularity of a game. ) Most of the people who play MW are not gamers who visit sites and vote on polls. MW is a new Madden. Some people play only CoD games and nothing else.

Time will tell who "wins", but I am predicting that Battlefield 3 will be a better game, while MW3 will still sell like crazy.

After 5 or so years of FPS dominance, I think it is time for a new gaming trend (I'd be happy with just an evolution in the genre). I don't think there will be a shift until the next generation.

Not really a difficult question.

I think the last two options would be the most appropriate mr. Weir, and that will be shown the day Activision announces the new sales record (although I hope I'm wrong).
