With juggernaut titles such as Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and Skyrim all launching in the space of a few days between each other this year, it is clear that gamers have to face the pleasant ultimatum of choosing which game takes their preference and which other two collects dust in the meantime.
Considering that all three titles come with hardcore fan communities and a stellar pedigree of previous titles in their respective franchise, it’s clear that many of you will be playing one of these three games since they all provide a different experience. Two are arguably the most popular first person shooters of the year, whilst Skyrim is arguably the finest role-playing adventure game of 2011 as well.
With this in mind, we want to know which game you are playing the most at the moment since, all three in our opinion are must buy games and we would predict that there’s a great deal of you who own all three. MW3 and BF3 rivalries aside, there’s going to be a lot of fans who picked up both games for the different online experience, and there’s obviously a huge interest in Skyrim considering how amazing Oblivion was and the sheer hype of Skyrim prior to release.
Do you find yourself playing Battlefield 3 the most simply because it launched first and you can’t seem to put the game down for one second, or is it all about the new Call of Duty game again, as you try and earn as many prestige emblems as possible for bragging rights. Perhaps the first person shooter love affair isn’t to your tastes this year and the majority of your free gaming time is spent entirely on Bethesda’s latest Elder Scrolls epic.
We have created a poll so you can share your thoughts on this, and we think the results are going to be very close. By no means do we predict a landslide for Modern Warfare 3, as we believe that the game isn’t as ‘untouchable’ as say Modern Warfare 2 was, and with the added option of BF3 and Skyrim to play instead, those are some mighty alternatives there.
Which game is getting you into trouble with your parents or girlfriend as you devote all your time to nothing but your chosen title? Also, how many hours a day would you say you spent on your game? We look forward to the results with considerable anticipation.
