Zero Punctuation: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

HAH! Who needs multiplayer? Modern Warfare 3 has a single player campaign that lasts 5 hours, isn't that enough for people? Ah well I liked this episode a lot, cannot wait to hear critism for Skyrim, he already critised Oblivion so next week should be fun.

I'm guessing he might get around to talking about Skyward Sword on Christmas. The perfect Christmas present for me, and I'm someone who loves Skyward Sword and is hyped to hear Yahtzee rip it apart!

Oh yeah and there was a Sonic game recently that Skyrim overshadowed. I loved Sonic Generations, which means Yahtzee won't. XD

"Battlefield 3" is nothing like "Modern Warfare 3", at least not in the multiplayer portion. BF3 actually emphasizes teamwork. MW3 doesn't even know the meaning of the word. I suggest you don't talk about stuff you don't know anything about. Stop hating just for the sake of hating.

Hmm, no...I don't think I will. After all, I'm not about to stop voicing my opinion on a subject just because some random person on the internet says so.

If my dislike is really so unjustified, and you are secure in the knowledge that something you like is indeed "good" then the airing of my displeasure about it shouldn't bother you in the least. Unless of course, you really do have doubts as to the quality of the game you are playing. That back in the darkest corners of your mind there's a niggling little voice that screams out in fear when someone says they don't like it. It fears that by just one person saying they dislike it, the game will become unpopular. That all it takes is for one person to invalidate the entire construct of your personal preferences. A person whom you've never met, who hides behind an alias on a gaming forum. That everything you thought was good is in fact crap, and that the opinion of one person is somehow gospel law which decrees you to be the owner of poor taste in games. That the decree of this poor taste in games calls into question the level of your intelligence as well. After all, to like something another dislikes automatically marks you with the label of "stupid".

Such paranoia and insecurity would lead me to question your mental stability. Of course, we all know you're not like that and are quite sane. You're just trying to protect the pillars of intellectual discussion for civil debates on the internet, and are actually quite secure in the knowledge that opinions are simply opinions. That they in no way affect the validity of yours and that a single person who holds a differing opinion has zero power to change that.

To each their own, as is said, let the haters hate because it will have zero affect on your entertainment and belief that said entertainment is of a high quality. Unless, of course, you don't really believe that.

I don't really understand what people here don't seem to get. Yathzee doesn't like multiplayer. So he's not going to give it a fair shake. That's just how it is you don't see me complaining about all the games he didn't like for reasons I liked them. If you didn't find it funny just don't watch the video anymore.
Does he really have to be fair and balanced, cause he was never that guy.

Markunator:
Oh, let's see: "Battlefield 3" has far better graphics and sound designs, it has environmental destruction, enormous multiplayer maps, 64-player multiplayer, jeeps, tanks, choppers, jets, a class system, teamwork, realism (just enough of it) ... Should I go on?

No need, we all get it. You love Battlefield 3 and God forbid anyone should dare to criticize it.

However, others may not like it, and they're just as entitled to their opinions as you are. So chill out.

ThunderCavalier:
Wow. I heard the plot of MW3 wasn't all that great, but... seriously? ALL of Europe?

Yep, they pretty much attack Paris, Hanover and Berlin at the same time, days after being beaten back from the US.

Just a slight nitpick, but no they don't. The New York and India levels at the beginning of the game during the Russian invasion of the US take place in the summer, and the later levels during the European invasion take place in the fall. Three months or so pass between them, actually. You can see the dates right at the bottom of the screen at the start of each mission.

But Yahtzee got this wrong too, though.

CoD is, like, actually fun, though.

And it has co-operative modes.

And a single player campaign that isn't shit.

Depends what you think is is worth your $60.

Quoting Yahtzee, I see. Yeah, that doesn't exactly make you original. Or clever. And I don't understand what exactly about my posts it was that made you think that I was raging in the same way that those people in that Yahtzee video were. I was just pointing out how I was disagreeing with people and thought they were wrong to say that Battlefield 3 was a bad game just because it's singleplayer was lacking, when its multiplayer is as awesome as it is.

And no, I am not in doubt of whether or not I actually like the game, thank you very much. If I didn't really like it, then I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have poured over 30 hours into it.

I think you misunderstood my point. I was just pointing out how fucking absurd it is to think that Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 are the same game. That's it. I don't mind you criticizing a game that I like, just as long as the criticisms themselves make some damn sense. Otherwise, you just come across as a troll.

Do you really think I was disrespecting other people's opinions, when all I was doing was pointing out that they were wrong on a certain point? Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 are not the same thing.

Depends what you think is is worth your $60.

Well, if you think it's fun to run around on tiny maps with no destructible buildings or cover and get shotgunned every 20 seconds, then sure, it's fun. If you think it's fun to have no reliance on teamplay or tactics at all, then sure, it's fun. If you think it's fun to have guns with no recoil or bullet drop and shitty sound effects, then sure, it's fun. If you think it's fun to have no (or at least barely any) driveable vehicles, then sure, it's fun.

Battlefield 3 has a co-operative mode.

And the singleplayer campaign is shit, at least when looking at the story. The story is unsalvageable after the incoherent, plothole-ridden mess that was Modern Warfare 2's plot. Battlefield 3's plot may not be good, but at least it makes some sense. I at least bought that story.

I think Battlefield 3 is definitely worth my $60, or rather, my 500 kronor.

It seems to me that most people criticizing Battlefield 3 on this board don't know quite as much about the game that they think they do. And when I point it out, I just get told to respect their opinion. Yeah, having an opinion on this board is fine, just as long as you agree with Yahtzee.

I haven't criticized BF3. I just told you to respect the opinions of people who don't like it, because despite that you are clearly a rabid fan of it, not everyone else is. And not everyone else has to respect the game as you do. It's called having a different opinion.

Who cares if their opinions come across as trolling or not? You're playing right into their hands by responding to those trolls. If you like the game, fine, go enjoy it. By lashing back at those people, you're just responding exactly as they want you to, anyways.

Meh, we are all used to Yahtzee not caring for multiplayer by now.

Meanwhile I play BF3 with 27 friends, and I don't think any of them have bothered with the singleplayer. I tried a friends MW3, he was trying to "convert" me back to CoD, lol. After switching from MW2 to BC2, I'm never switching back.

However that is not to say BF3 is perfect. Origin and Battlelog are worthless and poorly designed, so is the ingame squad management, it is obvious that the join squad button had been added at the last second, it's not even in the same font as the other text.

But once you actually start playing, it just CoD away.

Oh and also the Co-op needs some work, it seemed to have the same faults as the single player, well at least according to this review.

Yes, it is fun!

BZZT! WRONG!

Hah, nice. We'll said ZP. Both are fun but are shit, gotta love duality.

I like these sort of comparisons, but would have wanted more. Also, why has Team Hollywood started posting all vids?

I've been fallowing yahtzee's stuff for a while now anyone feel he's burning a little? He seemed to have more fun with his position in he past. Maybe it's just the holidays.

What an odd thing to say, about the foreign movies

Can someone tell me who team Hollywood is?

Despite the fact that I totally agree and both games are horrible, I still bought them both. I need to have something to waste my time on once I've finished Skyrim...

ah... these games make me miss Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

setting up dynamite on a sniper's head... oh the memories.

that was when men were MEN! none of this pseudo-realism nonsense. none of these pansies could handle a Venom nowadays.

boosting the breach with a panzerfaust... medflying to the top of the hill on assault... sniping through the grate on sub... holding the hallways on base with random grenades... granted those were all douchebag things to do but they were there to be done, damnit! none of this 'parabolic sniper rounds' stupidity.

v57.

Ah....I know what you mean: Painkiller and Serious Sam.

None of this "realism" bollocks and regenerating health. A bunch of developers sitting around a table going "hey, how can we make this more fun?"

Bunnyhopping around, making 8-foot skeletons tremble with miniguns, shooting rockets indiscriminately into an advancing horde of Kleers, doing a beautiful ballet of death with a shotgun and werebulls, pinning enemies to walls with wood, cutting them into lovely squidgy bits with some hugely over-compensatory melee weapon (not just some pussy gunbutt), running around getting a good look at the beautiful levels and monsters, charging directly into the action to cut your opponents to bits....

The list goes on. Good times man, good times.

Having any of those things would be counterproductive to the kind of game that Battlefield 3 is trying to be. It can't possibly have those things in it and still be a true sequel to Battlefield 2. Judge a game for what it is, not for what it never intended to be. It's supposed to be a fairly realistic game, mind you.

You want a review? Go to the hundreds of game review websites there are.

Oh come on, you can't be serious. As much as i like Yathzee, watching his reviews to see if a game is worth buying or not is just stupid.
And don't show me your definitions of the two words again, ok?
In a review, the reviewer wants to show the various aspects of the game (Or Movie or whatever). He (Or she) has to give an impression of what the game is like, so you know if you would like a game or not.
He has to talk about good and bad aspects of the game.
Yathzee just talks about the bad stuff.
You know, that is fine! We have enough normal reviews on the internet. But Yathzee's reviews are not there to inform the people about the game. They're there to entertain, to be funny.

So please stop making this posts flaming anyone who dares dislike Battlefield 3.

Oh, don't bother replying to this. It just makes you look like you can't handle criticism.

Hahaha. "Don't come around here with your meaning and accuracy, young sir."

Seriously, I'm not here to argue whether or not you should take advice from Yahtzee. That's an individual choice - it's better to gauge someone's tastes as a reviewer and decide if you would probably like the same things as them. There is, however, no law anywhere that says a reviewer can't be mostly negative in his or her appraisal.

Also, that's another cop out argument I love. "He's not a reviewer, he's a comedian." You do know the old idiom "It's funny because it's true," right?

Magog1:

He probably dies a little more on the inside every time he's forced to play a FPS that attempts to take itself seriously. (And he is forced. The Escapist picks the games he has to do a ZP on most of the time.)

At least Shooter Season 20-11 is over. Maybe he'll recover.

Well...it's true. While most of the complaints he has about the game in question are valid, he normally blows them out of proportion and ignores the good parts of the game. Which is fine, because that's his shtick. You have to take what he says with a grain of salt, though.

Ok i understood you a little wrong there. But i did not say that Yathzee wasn't a reviewer. But he most certainly isn't an objective one and not one to get a valid impression on how the game really is.
Maybe he can help with decissions if you completely know his style of reviewing and know that you have a really similar taste in games, but otherwise you should just watch the videos for the fun they are.

it's seems to me these days that you fight only three of things in games: either russians, nazis, euphimisms of nazis, terrorists, zombies, aliens, or weird aliens that are somehow zombies

You're right, he's not objective. As a matter of fact, no good reviewers can possibly be objective. Because to do so would simply mean that they can only state facts about the game, and have no opinions in their evaluation

For instance, it is a fact that MW3 includes a variety of guns. It is an opinion that these guns either do or don't provide enough of a varied experience to the gameplay. It is a fact that MW3 continues the story of the fictional war between NATO and Russia. It is an opinion that this story is either very captivating or makes absolutely no sense. It is a fact that the game has multiplayer. It is an opinion that the multiplayer is either really thrilling or a derivative camp fest filled with profanity spewing juveniles.

If you want someone to make an objective analysis of a game, they can't use any opinions in doing so, because the instant they do so it enters the realm of subjectivity, unless there's some kind of magical system of principles for game design and audience response that everyone on the planet has signed up to. And without having opinions of how various facets of the game work, they can't possibly evaluate it properly.

Well, ok, if you want to take his reviews completely seriously then thats fine, but don't blame anyone if you miss actually good games like Saboteur etc.
Lets just conclude: I like Yathzee a lot too. But his taste in games and his focussing only on bad aspects of games is something you have to very much take into consideration if you watch his reviews.

Alright, I'll give you the last point. Not because I want to encourage the all-too-common culture of entitlement on the internet, but because I can't really ask you a question and then say "don't reply".

Aaaaaand....back to work! Let's see your "criticisms" shall we?

And my personal favourite:

See! Just look at this! This isn't "criticism"! It's just flat-out demanding that other people share your thoughts on Battlefield 3 purely because you say it's a good game. You can't seem to stand anyone daring to say anything bad about it at all! This is outright screaming at anyone who says "Battlefield 3 might not be the best game ever" or that "it's a bit like CoD". And not even on any real evidence! You just state your opinion or, at best, state a feature from the came without giving a reason why it supports your argument! That is not criticism. You are simply insisting that anyone who doesn't love CoDWhoops! Battlefield as much as you do must be an idiot who doesn't know what they're talking about! It's absurdly pointless. Stop it please.

I have already given several reasons as to why Battlefield 3 is not like Call of Duty, at least not multiplayer-wise. Perhaps you should learn to read properly.

I don't really think that I have been unreasonable or fanboyish in my defense of Battlefield 3, which, again, you will find out if you look at the things I bring up in its defense.

I don't really see how I'm being more "entitled" than anyone else on this forum. Oh right, because I'm not agreeing with the rest of the mindless Yahtzee drones.

trollpwner:

This. I know it's silly to base an opinion of a game on a minority, but the kind of people who mindlessly defend Battlefield by bashing Call of Duty soured my opinion of the series to a point were it seems like most people like it because they're trying to be non-comformist.

Now, I know that's not true but when you read so many comments from people who can only express their love of Battlefield by telling everyone how much they hate Call of Duty...

if we the user can get banned for starting flame wars....then maybe yatzee should too :P

also id dont like the comparing method espcally when he gone say there crap anyway....wats the point?

You are simply insisting that anyone who doesn't love CoDWhoops! Battlefield as much as you do must be an idiot who doesn't know what they're talking about! It's absurdly pointless. Stop it please.

I have already given several reasons as to why Battlefield 3 is not like Call of Duty, at least not multiplayer-wise. Perhaps you should learn to read properly.

I don't really think that I have been unreasonable or fanboyish in my defense of Battlefield 3, which, again, you will find out if you look at the things I bring up in its defense.

I don't really see how I'm being more "entitled" than anyone else on this forum. Oh right, because I'm not agreeing with the rest of the mindless Yahtzee drones.

Hey, look! You're doing it again! You're insisting that anyone who dares call you out a "Yahtzee drone" who needs to "learn to read". On no basis but your opinion- again! Just the same as all your "proof". You just state your opinion and demand that we all agree, because heaven forbid that people disagree with you, oh great omnipotent master of the universe! Imagine everything not being how you want!

GTFO. This is just sad. Endlessly stating something that you think is true (with no evidence) and flaming anyone who dares to disagree. If you want to be on these forums, learn to use logic and reason, instead of screaming your opinion and demanding that everyone agree.

Patronizing me and telling me to "GTFO" isn't going to make me GTFO, I'm afraid. I don't really see how I have been "screaming" here. My point is simply that Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 are not the same game. When looking at the multiplayer, they're not even all that similar.

Oh, and as for evidence: watch some gameplay videos of Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer, then watch some gameplay videos of Battlefield 3's multiplayer. There's your evidence.

Also, did you not see the post in which I listed several differences between the two games? Again, learn to read.

Bleh, bleh, bleh. Spare me.

Hey, guess what? I looked at the two on youtube? And you know what? They're both almost exactly the same. Oh, what's that? I'm a moron that doesn't know how to watch a video? Because I don't immediately parrot your opinion? I'm a Yahtzee zombie? [Hey, that sounds like a nice mod for CoD...]

But that's all your opinion! Just like your "several differences" between the games that I didn't "learn to read" because I didn't immediately declare you right! Once again, you have nothing but your opinion to back up anything you say. You are here just to demand that everyone in the world love battlefield just because you do, instead of just accepting that people will sometimes dislike things you like.

Fine. Go ahead. Troll if you want. In fact, I'll help you! I'll get a bunch of bots to state opinions you don't like and immediately say what you want them to when you yell your opinions at them! Yeah, that should do it! If I do that, can you leave the humans who want intelligent and logical conversations alone? kthnxbi
