You make good points about both Treyarch and IW. They do both have their own special flavor with their games. Unfortunately, Activision is more concerned with putting out a new game every year instead building a top notch game that they can support for 2 years via great content download. I personally prefer the people who play and the style of play that BF offers, but odds are that I will pick up MW3 to play occasionally when I need a fix of kicking peoples ass in a high paced MP online.
I def think the vest thing is dumb. pretty much bringing Juggs back to an extent. I will say this. IW games run VERY smooth and play better and treyarch is more fair and fun. that my opinion though. wish they would both get together and make one game
The streaks look a bit ridiculous, and even though the Support Streaks won't stack up to a lot of kills for the person getting them, it will greatly tip the scales in favor of the team that the person is getting the Support Streaks for.
I'm still a bit worried, but seriously, what are the alternatives? I will most likely pick up MW3 as well because I'd like to play the campaign, but as far as online MP is concerned there are only 2 real possibilities. I'm just hoping that BF3 is the one I like best because the new killstreak/perks system in place with MW3 looks like it rewards players for EVERYTHING and you know it's going to be complete chaos.
I'm going to keep my pre-order active until I make my decision, but odds are that I will rent the game before I make my final decision. I quit playing games back in February and I would be highly displeased if the first game that I dropped $60 on wasn't what I expected. In the meantime, I'm going to give the "beta" a chance and maybe it will grow on me. I don't know why, but I simply don't like the feel of the game.
