So until the beta is released on the 360 I am playing it on Ps3 and so far I have been pretty underwhelmed. What I wanna ask you guys is, to make sure it isn't just me, are the graphics as bad as they seem to me? I am playing on a TV capable of 720p and 1080i so I wasn't sure if maybe the game was being downscaled or something (since Ps3 only downscales to SD if an aspect ratio isnt supported), but I was surprised at how bad this seemed to me. I know this is a beta but I didn't know if anyone knew what level of beta this was (basically are they only working on optimizing netcode at this point?). I didn't want to put too much stock into things since I am playing it on the PS3 and its a beta, but I didn't know if anyone else has had experience playing a beta on any of the other versions. I didn't expect anything near what a decent PC could do, but I expected better than this. Hopefully its just because its the beta.

Better than a broken gane that still gets high ratings

I still think overall Oblivion had a more exciting cast list. I could be wrong, but thinking back it feels like it.

@Branthog: Thanks for your response and good explanation. I did read all of it. What has kept me from getting a TV on Amazon was I heard if you need to return it they can be a pain. I'll look into it a little more though. Thanks again.

@jetsetwillie: I've had really good luck with Sony, LG, and Toshiba in the past so I suppose that I am partial to those but I will obviously pay a lot more for Sony. You do get what you pay for in a lot of cases but I've seen several friend's TVs who do not have the higher end brands and they were pretty great looking. I wasn't sire if there were a few that were considered really good for gaming as when I try and do some research I getting a lot of just general information crap.

I just thought I'd shoot the Duder signal out to see if anyone has any good recommendations on TVs for gaming. I think I am going with a 42" if possible and several people have told me backlit LEDs are really good, but I have no experience with that type so I thought I'd check the boards and see what you guys thought. Any recommendations will be much appreciated.

Tommy Wiseau is too self aware to be funny now. The Room is really the only funny thing he's done, outside of Tim and Eric cameos.

Also, I think Alex's penchant for BS is a lot higher than his hyperbole sometimes lets on, lol.

Personally it all depends on your play style. Call of Duty is fast paced standard death match style game play with a few different modes thrown in. Battlefield is a slightly more methodical experience and also has bigger maps, vehicles, and in my opinion a more unique experience in comparison to the every freaking year Call of Duty experience (which hasn't really changed much since the first MW).

Metacritic user reviews are complete trash.

They are too busy helping Capcom make terrible games.
