Hehe, we have similar taste in gaming then. I played about 230 hours of MW2 last year and now i play Black Ops, just got the new map pack for it. Luckily hardware is not issue for me, as i have workstation on my disposal....i tried it install it on my older compy with core 2 duo 3GHz and it was really choppy...only god knows how they managed to screw it this way, while it looks the same as MW2.
Leave it to Treyarch to follow World At War with what could have been the best COD and yet again screw it up for some of us.
As you could not play it, i suppose its pointless asking what do you prefer? I am bit on the fence here, bar the HW side of things i believe Blops is more balanced and overall better game, but MW2 was my "first" multiplayer shooter, so i am still fond of it despite it shortcomings...and i really liked M14 EBR, LOL.
Well, I was somewhat able to play it but it would eventually become annoying. I like the many game styles in Black Ops although it did have a bit of World At War mixed in with Modern Warfare 2 in it which I found a bit appealing, none the less I tend to like MW2 more. Not really sure why.
My first FPS was COD 2 followed by COD4 and COD WAW so I have actually owned all of the COD games including COD and COD United Front (I think thats what it was called) and COD 3 for the Wii although we could not get rid of it fast enough.
Regarding Battlefield, i played only the older ones (original and BF2), so cant really judge Bad Company, but i think i prefer CoD....its funny cause i snipe all the time, so BF should be more obvious choice for me, but i just do not like how people f*ck around with various vehicles, i prefer classic fighting with hand guns, therefore Blops for me.
I am a sniper 75% of the time but I like doing the running and gunning sometimes and using my heavy guns to defend in Domination. I drive people nuts when I do that, so much it takes the whole team to get rid of me from my spot.
Last thing, Starcraft... i was never a big fan of it, but i love RTSes indeed...now my buddy tries to convince me to buy it, so he can play it with me, but i just do not know... it costs 43 EUROs over here and i am not sure, if it is worth the money. Not cause of the quality of the game, but as i know myself, i will end up playing CoD or PES 2011 95 percent of time anyway and in that case its money down the drain. I already made mistake, when i bought SupCom 2 and RUSE last year, played both combined maybe 30 hours or even less. And i prefer this new-gen grand scale strategies more than oldish SC, where you maneuver 10 units and call it an army.
I was gonna get RUSE but never got around to it. Now I see it was not that popular. Shame, looked good in the demo. Starcraft is not for everyone, not easy to play against people who got their strategies well ironed out but it can be fun sometimes.
