These days, the gaming world’s obsessed with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3, or more specifically, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 vs. Battlefield 3. Which game looks better? Which game plays better? Which game has the most diehard fans? These debates continue to rage on a daily basis with no end in sight.
To that we ask, who cares?
Bottom line, both games will be enjoyable. Both games will offer a similar experience. Both games will have supporters. Both games will probably get hacked, thus ruining the multiplayer experience for the millions who plunk down the $59.99 a piece at retail.
Our advice? Save the cash and a ton of stress. Instead, go with Mario.
Like it or not, this is the plumber’s year. Nintendo has not one, but two Mario titles slated to debut before the end of 2011 for 3DS, both of which will fly off shelves.
First up is Mario Kart 3DS, the follow-up to the million selling DS smash hit. This game runs faster (at a speedy 60 frames per second), features kart customisation (big tires, little tires), hang gliders to soar through the air and most importantly, online play against the scores of fellow kart riders worldwide.
Next, there’s Super Mario 3D, which continues to look more like the spiritual successor to Super Mario Bros. 3 each time we see it. The Tanooki suit’s back, the airships have made a return, Bowser’s kids have run amok and the game looks sweet in glasses free 3D.
Odds of both Mario games outselling Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3? It’s debatable, but they’ll produce more smiles and general feelings of goodwill.
That counts for a lot in our book.
