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. This is the first time I’ve done one of these, very cool. I like this kind of thing alot, there should be more of these!

  2. Neither.

    That assessment is made in the assumption that I could afford either or both. Which I can’t and won’t be able to. So my point may well be null and void anyway, nevertheless, at that time of year, what few pennies I probably won’t have would be going on something else.

    I’m beginning to wonder why I voted. Probably because I imagine the more people vote the more balanced the vote will be though considering the sales FPS games generate, I would think the vast majority will go one way or the other so I may not be helping with the balance at all. We’ll see.

  3. Both *heads down and walks away*
    Although….. I’d be playing Battlefield Multiplayer and Call of Duty is for campaign only and zombies!

  4. I’ll no doubt buy BF3 for PC when I have the funds and possibly rent MW3 for PS3 if it turns out ok. I’m not that fussed about the COD series, not that I dislike them, just that once I had played MW2 I didn’t feel like I needed Black Ops.

  5. i choose that i will not buy either but if i had to choose the one that will be the best… Battlefield 3 all the way!!!

  6. BF3 FTW!

  7. Both, MW3 for the banter, BF3 for the gameplay.

  8. I’ll only be getting BF3, Black Ops just wasn’t good enough for me and found overall BC1,BC2,1943 have been a better experience than MW2 and Blops.

  9. Bf3 for me all the way

  10. Both, can’t wait. Along with uc3, arkham city & skyrim, this could well be the my best year of gaming, in a little over 25yrs.
    “You are in Tuffcub’s cave at the back of the TSA office!” “We shall unleash the Cub.” I literally did laugh out loud.
