CoD the same graphics as BF¿?

BF4 a DRAMATICAL improvement over Bf3 in graphics?


ha.


At least we agree on the Arma part.

I'm enjoying Ghosts over BF4. Really liking the new modes and the maps are much better than the previous two.

Honestly, If this were just strictly current gen consoles I'd say Call of Duty Ghosts. I just think current gen handles the CoD engine very well, you get decent visuals at 60fps without all the hiccups that Battlefield 4 has. I just think BF4 on current gen runs and looks like crap and the game just doesn't have the horsepower to function the way it's meant to be played on these dated consoles.  So if you can handle the tried and true CoD forumla, I'd give the nod and wait for the next gen consoles to come out to purchase Battlefield 4 to get the "true" experience..

Well I'd give the graphics point to CoD and not both. I like BF4...but graphically it feels like something that was released 4-5 years ago.

I'm guessing the graphics verdict was a joke?

Great joke at the end. Loved it. In all seriousness though once you add PC support to the mix F*** COD.

It's funny how they visualize this competition in X's and O's. A game that's almost impossible to win or lose. 


When clearly Battlefield is the winner lol

Didn't play new COD, but Battlefield 4 is fantastic! If it wasn't for some technical issues and a bit short campaign, BF4 is definitely shooter of the year!

I've loved every COD game up to this point, but I'm not getting this. COD is just boring to me now after being exposed to the wonderful world of Battlefield. I mean BF even does TDM better. Come on.

BF4 Good game, crap graphics, good for team based play...... VERY GOOD AT CRASHING Xbox 360


COD fast, quick, only thing you really need to concentrate on is being very very quick, gets boring very quickly...... GOOD if you are a young/adolescent sociopath with any kind of socializing issues.


Think i've covered it all......

Not a big fan of this very tiring, endless and puerile debate. Let's face it, though these games are both military FPS's with a campaign and a MP element, they have little else in common. Ask anyone who's played them both and they'll likely say "they're two totally different types of games". And we should enjoy both for what they each bring to the proverbial table. End of story. Those that constantly bicker over this are just looking for something to gripe about.

Oh yeah, and will you snobby PC gamers get the F over yourselves?? We alllllll get it : PC's have the best graphics. BIG. F'N. DEAL. It's not like console graphics look so bad we can barely handle it. They look just fine thanks. And I have no desire to play a game with my fingers all over a damn keyboard (which I already spend immense amounts of hours on, at a job) or pointing and clicking with a mouse. I actually want to feel like I'm playing a game - not doing more work. 

**steps off soapbox**.......

PC pro and cons list

BF4 (40 hrs experience)

Pros: graphics, gameplay, maps, versatility to playstyle, tanks planes and automobiles, battlelog is great way to stay connected to other players and the leaderboard stats are addictive as you try to stay top 30 in skill or KDR in your state or w/e your goals are.

cons: netcode (it's the worst netcode of any game I've ever played... it will keep it from being competitive MLG type of game, this is really the only thing holding it back IMO), launch (the servers would crash on 2/3 games, but it is much better now


Ghosts (20 hrs in, first CoD game since MW2)

Pros: great netcode, pick up and play, fast pace quick rounds (maybe too quick), easy to unlock your weapons/perks/attachments of choice, dogs (srs. awesome killstreak)

Cons: no1 mentions this, but there are no ****ing hotzones.... it just random spawns (totally random which could screw you or your opponent over) and thus people just run around on most maps randomly or camp because there are no hotzones and kill the aimless people. i feel like this is such a basic concept that they totally screwed up. i expected bad spawns, but no hotzones? are you serious? that's fps multi 101... this gutted IW makes needs to fold.

con 2: dedi servers are a disaster on PC. they stutter all the way through and IW/Acti act like nothing is wrong, in fact they usually blame it on peoples rigs... they only care about console and ignore pc in hopes that it gets drowned out

con 3: requirements.... my rig can kill this game maxed and i hit the 90 frame limit, but some people can't play it due to their very poor optimization for PC and the 4gb ram requirement. not a problem for me, but it's a cod game there isn't any heavy lifting going on here.. or at least there shouldn't be

con 4: no host servers, pc players like host servers....

Wow, that was a giant waste of 5 minutes. ARMA 3...LOL. Graphics and Multiplayer both go to BF4, hands down. The only thing CoD has going for it is the campaign.

Is so immature from gamepost to create these kind of articles just to see fanboys fighting here... any real gamer know that we should play both games and be happy.

@panaicman66 You played BF4 on a Xbox 360....LOL. The only thing you covered is you played the WATER DOWNED version of the game. It's not even the max graphics nor is the multiplayer able to handle the full 64 player matches, which are like BFs bread and butter for Online play.

You really didn't cover it all. Go play BF4 on a PC on ultra settings and then say the graphics are crap, because you haven't even truely seen BF4 then.

@DETfaninATL You mad bro? I work in IT...behind a computer all day, have no problem playing my games on one...FPS are made for mouse and keyboard, others are better with a controller...oh hey, PCs can accept USB controllers AKA Xbox wired or Xbox One controllers.

@DETfaninATL EXACTLY. I work behind a freaking computer ALL DAY. I don't want to sit behind one when I'm relaxing. Glad someone else get it.

@Cartr1dgeBased I agree with you on BF4. The netcode is in dire need of some serious work! Getting shot behind cover, instant kills/deaths when it isn't a headshot, etc. Not a great thing at all.

Also, the game needs a pro-gamer mode! Something where the avatars don't shout every damn time you get a kill, dodge a grenade, or get shot at. Would also be more competitive if the minimap didn't show which direction the enemy icons were pointing. It makes it just a little too noob friendly to be an MLG game, IMO.

@pzb101 Who cares...get a PC for BF4, a Xbox One and PS4 are children's toys for a game like that. A beast rig makes it shine.

@DarkLord @Cartr1dgeBased netcode is a longterm issue unfortunatly, bf3 had the same issues and it was actually the worst I had ever played... until BF4. It's not an easy fix from what I understand and LevelCap made a great video on it (who i just realized is actually in this video, getting killed in the opening multikill)

i agree on the pro-gamer mode, could be called "don't bother the **** out of me the entire game....mode". like when I get promoted. it tells me like 4 times. im just like, i get it... stop already. knock it off, your taking up a third of the screen

@klugenbeel @pzb101 pretty sure they're releasing the 8xx series early next year, buying a 780 right now would be a bit stupid

@pzb101 @klugenbeel A GTX 880...so you are either a time traveler as that isn't even out and is just rumors or you meant either a 680 or 780.
