This morning I decided to watch a bit of the TNT from last night with the Battlefield 3 DLC. Seeing the game made me think that I should give BF3 another go. I had not played the game since late Winter/Early Spring. Anyway, I popped the game in the ol' PS3 and realized I needed to download a 2000 MB patch. I'm assuming that was the recent update to allow the new DLC to work. I did not have that available on my hard drive, and didn't feel like waiting to download it so I decided to give Black Ops another go.
I played a decent amount of Black Ops last year when it had come out and still the occasional match of Zombies with friends. I wouldn't say I'm a huge COD fan, while I did enjoy the original Modern Warfare. After playing a few matches I was hooked again. I really did miss the fast paced multiplayer. Getting back into Black Ops has sort of renewed my interest in the COD Series as a whole. I would typically be the first to tell you that the series has run it's course and I'm tired of hearing about it. I never got around to trying out MW3 so perhaps that has kept me from being burnt out.
Obviously games like Battlefield and Black Ops are sort of two different entities. BF3 tends to focus on the large scale battles, besides the recent DLC (from what I've heard) and COD focuses on the extremely frantic close quarters game play. Large scale battles are good in my book as well. I absolutely loved MAG and played it to a great degree.
Too be honest, I was a bit surprised that I was excited to jump back into the COD series. I can honestly say that I'm psyched for Blacks Ops 2 and curious to see what Activision/Treyarch bring to the table with the latest version. This is something I never thought I would say.
Has anybody else sort of caught that COD itch again lately after an extended period away from it? Maybe it's just me.
