TC’s Massive Poll: Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3

Alternate Universe Introduction

You eyes slowly flicker open, you have no idea how long you have been unconscious or where you are. The last thing you can remember was the battle, there must have been sixteen of your squad fighting against the insurgents but somehow one of the enemy had mange to creep up behind you. A flash of pain as a rifle butt slammed in to your skull is the last thing you can recall.

You are sat on a wooden chair that creaks noisily as you struggle but despite your attempts you cannot move, your arms are tied firmly behind back. You are a prisoner.

The light from a dying fire helps your eyes adjust to the gloom and you can just make out the walls of a cave, and in one corner a computer screen.

As the screensaver flicks through pictures of Tom Hardy you begin to notice other details. A flag with a mysterious symbol hangs from a wall, it is white and blue and the symbol looks similar to an asterisk. Various weapons are stacked in the corner of the room; sadly they are all out of reach.

Suddenly a curtain on the far wall is flung open and a tall, gruff looking man walks in. It is the leader of the insurgents, a fearsome Russian known throughout the world as Peter the Awesome. His two henchmen, Aleks and Kristoff follow him in to the cave.

Aleks begins to speak. “You dirty pig-dog! You are our prisoner now, there is no escape from clutches of TSA! Do you know where you are?”

Kristoff chuckles quietly and leans towards you, “You are in Tuffcub’s cave at the back of the TSA office!”

“You must choose. If you do not choose then we shall unleash the Cub. Choose carefully for the fate of millions rests in your hands,” shouts Peter.

Both Aleks and Kristoff laugh. It is an evil laugh, a laugh that strikes terror in your heart.

“Choose now,” commands Peter, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3. Which will you be buying?”

Real Universe Introduction

Hello everyone, I thought I would resurrect my Massive Poll to see if we can predict which will sell more, Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3.

Please cast your vote above, the poll closes at midnight on Sunday and the results will be published next week. Get voting!


  1. Both! Im a sucker for Modern FPS’s

  2. Could have done with an option of “Will buy the one my mates buy!” Lol, cause I just don’t know. Both look great. If BF3 can repeat some of the MP fun BF2 had on the PC then that will be the one for me.

  3. Buying BF3, burning MW3.

    • surely you’d have to buy a copy to burn it ;)

    • I’ll probs rent both, cuz I’m a cheapskate lol

      • yeah will likely rent Bf3 asap but eventually give cod a look too. may buy Bf3 since i quite like the battlefields.

  4. BF3 for me! I am fed up of Call Of Duty. And very funny opening and story :D

  5. Huzzah! Tuffcub’s Massive Poll is back for the public’s pleasure!

  6. *checks

    Nah Armourd Core 5, its better

  7. Both…with absolute pleasure

  8. Battlefield 3 all the way. I’m tired of floaty quaver soldiers running around rendered levels at 60fps.

  9. As there is no Danski in that story, I refuse to vote.


    • He’s not in the story as in chapter two we discover Danski was killed by a crack team of Girl Guides.

      • Which inevitably leads to the part of the plot where we discover that…


        It was all a ruse & Danski had been collaborating with the Girl Guides all along to become the new global superpower.

  10. Love this feature! So pleased it’s back. My vote’s in the ‘neither’ camp. Both these games are a bit war-y, and the distinct lack of wizards, robots, ancient treasure, pirates, ninjas, pandas, or mythology as reality puts me right off.

    • Thank the gaming gods for skyrim. All shall be catered for this autumn.

      • Dark Souls shall conquer all!
