Default Re: Which will you buy and play ? PC only poll

I know and it seems like everyone (myself including at times) are missing the point of games.

The thing is, I can go back and fire up Final Fantasy III or Chrono Trigger or Secret of Mana and play for a WEEK without complaining one bit.

I can go back and play through the original half life, the original ghost recon even... I can go and play all of those which are vastly inferior in every way graphically yet still incredibly FUN.

This is why I really have no beef with MW3 being a clone graphically of MW2. I'm not going to buy it full price because I don't feel like $60 for just single player (which is all I would do) is worth that but I will eventually get it, more than likely after I've had my fill of skyrim.

After hearing people talking up the co-op for BF3 though, that sounds interesting but I'm going to wait and see if they release more maps to play for co-op. I remember the original ghost recon letting you do co-op lan play through single player missions and that's a fond gaming experience from back in the day.
