All of the COD games have had extremely fun and entertaining SP campaigns. They're chock full of memorable set pieces and well varied missions/locales that keep it fun. Sure it's linear and scripted but it's also tons of fun and that's ultimately what I care about. I have no doubt that MW3 will crush BF3's single player.

I selected both. I'm still on the fence about MW3 (really you can't make a proper decision until after launch) and BF3 looks pretty good.

Nobody around here really cares about the fun factor in games anymore TBH, it's mostly about graphics and performance. Take a look at the BF3 thread. Nobody has really said much about SP. I'm sure most PC gamers are just buying this for MP only.

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.

Most people like the interaction of playing a game with other people. That's why most people review/comment on co-op single player and multiplayer aspects of games. I feel the same way. I rarely have the motivation to play a campaign through any more by myself. I'd rather play with friends instead of being the anti-social guy in the dark room playing a game by myself.

I did enjoy COD4 and MW2 campaigns though (not so much Black Ops, I was kind of bored tbh), so MW3 campaign should be good.

None. Even though I'm sure I would love MW3 and BF3 for a week or so, I'm certain I wouldn't play them long term. Seeing as how the value in each game is the multiplayer, I can't justify the purchase.

So far after 50 votes....

BF3 = 26 votes

MW3 = 2 votes

I think that just about resolves that one then.
