Hello there!

First off, I would like to say that I am completely moderate on this debate. However, there are some things that I would enjoy debating, such as your comment about 12 year olds and how Battlefield 4 "looks better."

Point 1: Call of Duty is only about "running around and shooting people."

As an opening remark, I would love to say that both games are about running around and shooting people. That is quite literally what a first person shooter (FPS) is. You have a gun, which can fire bullets, which you fire at other players to kill them. Some bullets are fired differently. Some deal more damage, some deal less damage. Some explode and travel slowly. But the point is that both games have guns, bullets, and people to shoot. So technically, they are both equally about running around and shooting people.

However: In Battlefield, you don't have to run around all the time. You can also fly and shoot people, or drive and shoot people. Or drive people on your team while they shoot people.

Point 2: Battlefield 4 is more fun.

This, my friend, is what we call "hearsay" in the lawyer world. You have played Battlefield, yes, but how many people have told you that Battlefield is more fun than Call of Duty? And how can you know that they weren't talking about one particular Call of Duty or Battlefield? There are multiple iterations of each franchise, and the main point of a game is to be fun. Just because one game feels differently than another can make it more fun, but that might be opposite of what someone else feels.

For example: People who like fast-paced action instead of spotting enemies will play Call of Duty. People who enjoy using teamwork to take out large targets and plant objectives will play Battlefield. It's all about state of mind, such as being more of a team player, or extroverted, or introverted, it doens't matter. What matters is that different people have different preferences, which make them different than the next gamer. At the end of the day, they are both equally as fun.

Point 3: Battlefield 4 looks a lot better than Call of Duty.

While this may be true,
realism isn't the only thing that makes a game. You get no killstreaks in Battlefield, which is something a lot of Call of Duty players like having at their disposal. Basically something that awards you for doing well, planting objectives, that sort of thing.

Then again, Call of Duty: Ghosts is looking pretty fine, if you ask me. Sure, Battlefield may have rain splashes, flaling buildings, and fish that not only move out of the way but actually have AI, but Call of Duty: Ghosts has a loyal fanbase too, and many of them like Battlefield just as much as any diehard Battlefield player.

Point 4: Call of Duty is only played by 12 year olds.

Sue, squeakers are annoying as all hell. But we shouldn't group all players into the same category. A lot of people don't even play Call of Duty with mics on, and just as many 12 year olds play Battlefield while talking into the mic. Just because people are annoying doens't mean the game is annoying. That's why they put in a "mute" button, you know.
