The first Modern Warfare 3 gameplay video is out. It’s thirteen minutes long, so grab a snack. It looks good, but I have not been blown away like apparently everyone else has. Maybe it’s because I think Battlefield 3 looks much better and because I don’t see how Modern Warfare 3 look that much better than Modern Warfare 2 or Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Part of it is likely due to the fact that these military shooters are all start blending together, and don’t seem to warrant a re-purchase every year. I have long been one to buy NCAA Football every year, despite the only differences being updated rosters and some gameplay tweaks, but as a huge sports fan that is worth it to me.
I never liked First Person Shooters on the console. I bought Call of Duty: World at War a few years ago and ended up liking it a lot. I have bought all of the Call of Duty games since and have enjoyed them and gotten better at them. But I lose interest faster and faster every year, and this might finally be the time I pass.
