Point is, if your complaining about snipers in BC2, stop playing it on hardcore
never played BC2 on hardcore, ompared to CoD games, which I (and my clan) ONLY play hardcore.

It was more a comparison between the number of bullets an AR would require to kill, compared to the amount of people using sniper rifles (I used to go into matches to see pretty much everyone playing a recon class). It would take about half a mag to down a single person, when I played (which was during MP patch 2 and 3 on Xbox)

ah that explains it, failbox players....

I play on my PC, i see maybe 2 or 3 Snipers to a group of 26 on average, per side of coarse, just as i will play BC3 on the PC aswell, as Failbox or the PS3 do not have the graphical power that my PC does.

and for the record, the Initial design of the MW series and BC2 were both made for the PC first, as its the king for most diehard shooter fans, and only little children who all want to snipe play on the 360.

pc fanboy much?

I dont play MW or BF games (Or any games, atm, for that matter) on my PC, because I never had internet to my PC whilst at my mums, and I didnt bring it with me when I moved out 2 years ago (dont have the space in a house with my GF and 2 children)

I am well aware they where both initially designed for PC, and that PC is the largest playerbase, but not everyone has the money to throw on a new GFX card every year or so, not to mention other hardware. The Xbox is a safe bet for consistent play.

I only recently had to replace my 8800 which was an 8 year old card, my computers specs are that old.

thus: im not replacing my GFX card EVERY year, more like it is minimal upgrades occasionally in order to play a game at a far superior level to the failbox. I mean hey, the xbox might be a 'safe bet' but its due for an update soon itsself, and its 'update' probably wont beat my computer still. as a Tech junkie i cant bring myself to enjoy material i can get at a superior quality, on an outdated machine that does not have true HD graphics, for a higher price, as for some reason xbox games still go for easily 10 canadian dollars more then their pc equivalent.

This is where I have to agree with you: here in the UK, a new Console game will cost around 35-40 GBP, whilst on PC will most likely be only 25-30 GBP.

Ok, so not everyone updates every year, but still, I felt lke I was required to upgrade hardware in order to play new games, or be forced to play them on low settings (which I did for a while, on games like ArmA & ArmA2).

And as for the Xbox having "fail" level graphics, I would say that it has quite decent graphics, actually and that the level of graphics is, entirely, down to the game, more than anything else, as you get games with shit graphics and games with amazing graphics (difference between "between good and evil" and "Ace Combat 6")

the xbox is not 'true' high def, rather its a mimiced HD thanks to all its RAM being poured into video ram.

The Graphic cards in the xbox are x1600's it has 2 in it, which do not have the technology implemented in them to attain true HD graphics. its why when you try to play their 'hd' games on a non HD setting they come out blurred and unreadable for the text.

The only thing i play on CoD anymore is zombies just for a bit of fun. Black ops multiplayer is a load of tits. MW2 was great when it first came out, but after about 50 nukes, it just gets boring. Hardcore is the only playable game mode, and even then, it takes about 4 bullets from certain guns to kill. AK-47 is the only really worthwhile gun to use. I can only hope that MW3 does something drastic to revitalise the series. I find the PS3 to be better quality for gameplay than the pc, but then I never really got the hang of gaming on pc.

A little off topic here, but i think that the best ever games console was the Nintendo 64, and i still break mine out regularly for a bit of nostalgic gaming. Super Smash Bros. anyone?

speaking from a nostalgic viewpoint, Mcmuffin, id have to agree with you completely. The graphics were amazing for its time and it was before the whole short gameplay amazing graphics bs that comes around now a days.

thats different. I was not refering to the massive hour RPGs from those who are skilled at making them. i mean games like fable 1 which i beat in a very short amount of time.

the games that assumate that a mear 10-20 hours of gameplay total is enough.
