FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Best Shooter 2011

Battlefield 3


Platform(s): Xbox 360, PS3, PC

Publisher: Electronic Arts

Developer: DICE

I don't really care about the supposed battle between Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. We know it's all just a fabricated duel between EA and Activision to hype both titles, and yes, us journalists love to bask in this sideshow with our news stories with controversial quotes. We like hits after all. And it pisses a certain group of prepubescent teenagers off, which is fun in its own right.

But are any of you actually surprised that we've given Battlefield 3 the Best Shooter award? We did give this game an A- and Modern Warfare 3 a B-. I mean, as far as we're concerned, Gears of War 3, Dead Space 2, and Crysis 2 had a (much) better chance at snatching the award away. Still, Battlefield 3's team-based multiplayer, which emphasizes each player devoting themselves to a specific role, is difficult to beat. Being ranked first on a team just for being proficient at being a medic or a engineer just doesn't happen often in other games, and multiplayer faithfully rewards squads who work together cohesively. Oh, and did I mention the graphics are awesome as well?

(Actually, we didn't want Modern Warfare 2 to win again... yeah, you know what I said.)
