Yes, it is time once again to ponder the same question as two years ago. That question being, “Will Battlefield beat out CoD and take the #1 spot in the universe?” In other words, will it break records and day one sales across the board? It is a very good question that many people ponder and fan-boys flame war about. This question is probably #2 and right next to the question “Which is better, Xbox or PlayStation?”

Well, I, CptainCrunch, am here to answer that question for you. That answer is…… no.

Now before all the rage starts and hate mail/tweets comes in, hear me out on this. It is not that Call of Duty is so great and appealing to everyone that it just cannot be beat and will be the remaining juggernaut for all times. It is also not because Battlefield is such a terrible game and the only thing it has going for it is pretty lighting from the Frostbite engine. No, the reason is much more simple. Activision won the marketing war against EA a few years ago. You see, EA has had some rough years and some decisions it made on its part probably did not help the situation. You also had DICE re-defining itself as not just a Battlefield making developer, but  a REAL game developer. So we had Battlefield 2 and 2142 and then it went quiet for Battlefield. While 2142 was starting to get old and stale for a game, Infinity Ward announces CoD:4 Modern Warfare. It was truly one of the best FPS games made to date. It is probably my #2 favorite of all time. No, BF3 is not my #1 ( gasp ). I would have to say 2142 holds that spot. (more…)
