I like bf3 much more.
A hackshield that you can call a hackshield and not just some shit.
You can destroy map obstacles.
You can´t complain about the mapsize (small - close quarters, large - armored kill (not yet released), medium - all other)
I only play cod in private matchs with friends because they do not play as noobish as everyone else do.
sry for my bad englich but im a 15 year old german

From my experience, Battlefield 3 is more of a focused, methodical game - spotting, staying with teammates, not running around corners or through the open areas, those sort of things - because Battlefield soldiers depend on their teammates. Battlefield has a lot more variety and there are some really cool moments where you're by yourself and you stab the lone enemy sniper and the sniper happens to have some nice dog-tags, or 2 enemies are capturing a position in Conquest and you blow a hole through the corner of the building they happened to be in and kill them in the process. And of course, just blowing stuff up is fun - especially blowing up buildings with enemies inside.
But Battlefield can get slow-paced at times, and moving tactically can be intense but gets tiring. Feeling like cannon fodder for tanks, helicopters, and sometimes jets is also an annoyance.
Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 3, all the CoD games are kind of the same) is almost always fast-paced, except during Search & Destroy when there are only one or two people from each team still alive during the round. In Call of Duty, it's usually a good strategy to run laps around the map and shoot enemy that you see. The variety of game-modes and multiple ways to kill people with equipment like claymores, semtex, and throwing knives is one of the better things about Call of Duty. Teamwork is beneficial in Call of Duty, but anyone can do perfectly fine as a lone wolf, and manage to win too. Since almost everyone I know has Call of Duty games for either Xbox or PS3, I usually end up playing the PC editions of CoD with randoms all the time, so being able to play - and win - by myself in Call of Duty is crucial. It's also really easy to kill people in Modern Warfare 3. I tried playing MW3 with handy BF3 tactics like not running through open ground, crouching around corners - really obvious, but often overlooked stuff in the Call of Duty series, and general tactics to not get surrounded and shot in the back, which seems to happen a lot in MW3 maps compared to previous CoD games if you're not careful. And it worked out pretty well: I spent the last half of the MW3 match running my killstreaks through the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street.
I don't know, Battlefield and Call of Duty are both really fun, but with the new Close Quarters map pack, Battlefield 3 is a better game all around, but I still like how easy and fun it is to kill people in Modern Warfare 3.
MW3 is better on consoles where there's more of a Call of Duty population anyway and BF3 is better on PC, where the graphics can be displayed to their fullest and... I don't know about the community, BFBC2 for PC wasn't exactly as populous as the PC version of Black Ops last time I checked a week ago, but PC still has a bunch of BF3 PC players. So yeah. I could practically make this into a video-game blog post. :P
Of course BF3 is better than cod, but it's personal choice. If somebody likes more action on small distance he should choose cod, if he like a biggest distances, small amount of cheaters and of course have more money for addons like Close Quarters he should get Battlefield.
I like both BF3 and MW3, but if I only have 15 minutes or 30 minutes to play, I'd choose CoD.
You can get in 2 or 3 matches and get in a lot of action in 30 minutes of CoD and probably at least 1 full match in 15 minutes in MW3. There's just so much more action in a small amount of space and time in MW3 that is stretched out in BF3.
I spent about 1 hour playing BF3 and got 65 kills in a TDM game and I was top of the leaderboard in that match. In a CoD match, one can easily get 10-20 kills in a 15 minute TDM game and in the span of an hour, cycle through 3 or 4 maps.
