CoD MW3 (in Off-topic)

I just bought it.

I have to say, Meh.

It is so like the other game I feel I am in a time warp. Newer plot of course, but nothing real different from Black Ops.

Tomorrow I get my reserved copy of ES5.

btw what ES5 means?

Skryim in <10hours... MW3 would have been a waste of money for me.

If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick Skyrim. Probably won't play that either though. I'm looking ahead to Bioshock Infinite.

People buy CoD MW3 for the online gameplay, not the single-player story. Otherwise, these FPSs are just six-hour rentals. And as long as the online play is a slightly polished version of the last, it'll be a winner.

I'm with LB. Can't wait for the new Bioshock :)

Ah, indeed. I think if I ran a new character today, I'd not even make it to 6 BA.

Over on MetaCritic I am not sure I have ever seen such a huge disparity between critic's average scores and user scores for a game. Critics are giving CODMW3 something around a 9.0/10 while users are a 2.6 (on close to 3000 ratings).

I'd say your "meh" is in good company, Ranger!

Demigod November 11 2011 12:43 PM EST

2.6 on a 1-10 scale is beyond believable. Methinks there's a prank going on, similar to the childishness of 4Chan.

There's a pretty big CoD / BF rivalry, so I'm sure at least part of it spawns from that.

QBsutekh137 November 11 2011 1:43 PM EST

Yeah, I thought the same thing -- I suppose it isn't hard to "stuff the ballot box" on something like that...
