Battlefield 3: The Call of Duty Influence

Posted by & filed under Blog Response, Game Culture Class.

I find that the biggest dilemma I face this fall will be this: Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3? I am excited for both and will most likely play both but the true problem is which one to focus on, or to put it frankly, which one I should whore. I’m looking forward to Battlefield’s new gameplay in which the fighting isn’t centered on vehicles and huge expanses of land. I agree with IGN that the Call of Duty series is beginning to influence the Battlefield developers. But why shouldn’t it? The Call of Duty franchise is one of the most successful out right now. Of course other developers are going to try to tailor their games to attract the COD crowd. Personally, I’m leaning towards Battlefield to be the end of my social life as I know it.
