I certainly have been seeing the same amount of comments almost everywhere about their opinion of MW3, but all they do is complain and then keep playing. That puzzles me...
I enjoyed Black Ops a ton on PC and enjoyed the servers that host "Nuketown 24/7" as their rotation, disregarding playlists. I'm not going to debate whether BF3 or MW3 but I feel (for me) I made the best choice and always find Battlefield 3 engaging, strategic, frenetic, and colorful at all times. If you haven't played it, I suggest finding videos of matches before you invest and see if playing something else will be invigorating. The drawback here is that there isnt variation to gametypes via playlist updates or "stupid fun", the matches only break down to Rush, Conquest, and Team Deathmatch modes.
Now you mentioned the classics Doom, Quake, and Unreal. I've been playing in another, revived classic: Tribes Ascend from Hi-Rez Studios. They have crafted a beautiful game with tons of customization and beautiful graphics. If you have a decent PC to play competitive FPS' you should head to the Tribes Ascend Facebook page and get yourself a Beta key just for a 'Like'. It is the fastest FPS out there, including mastering the use of the jetpack for flight and also utilizing the "skiing" mechanic in which you have feet jetpacks that accelerate you going downhill and then use main jetpack to fly and have tons of momentum. Different character classes allow for slower or faster movement.
It just seems to me you've got Call of Duty fatigue if the subtitle isn't "Black Ops" and you need to explore some new options possibly.
In all honesty, at the time - when we heard the soundtrack to SSX3 we didn't know a lot of the artists or collaborations. Now, as far as On Tour goes that was a familiar soundtrack. Maybe this SSX will have a soundtrack to remember when looking back
