I just bought it a few hours ago and damn! I love everything about it, graphics, story-line and realism. Anyone agree here?

I liked Call of Duty 2 more.
Also, no, it's not "realistic" at all.
Nobody wants realistic games that blows your head up in real life when you get shot in the face.
Authentic, maybe? I don't know.. Realistic is not the word I would use to describe a video game
*Obligatory "CoD ain't realistic, and that ain't an opinion thing" comment*
Aside from that, no. I do not think that at all. In fact, I'd say Modern Warfare 3 is one of the worst. It's boring as hell. At least Black Ops really embraced the insanity and action-movie inspiration the series takes from and is a better game for it. MW1 did a lot to freshen up Call of Duty, something the series desperately needs now. But Modern Warfare 3 doesn't do a single thing, not one tiny little thing at all, of note. Nothing. It's so boring and so lifeless throughout it all. I mean, MW1 revolutionized the genre, WaW was a lot more character focused, MW2 upped the ante in terms of cool action scenes, and Black Ops made it pretty insane. MW3 just... does nothing. At all. And the multiplayer even cuts out the one interesting innovation that BlOps had - in BlOps, you gained money to unlock weapons instead of just experience, which paved the way for wager matches, which was a fucking great idea. Why didn't MW3 have that?

Maybe a flight simulator or racing simulator, possibly even a golf game, but certainly not any game that has a gun in it.
MW3 and Black Ops II are the most realistic IMO. That's how warfare is like, right?
...and this is where I became convinced that nothing about this topic was serious or worth discussing further. Therefore, a lock seems in order.
Also, CoD:2142's the best. Fact.
