i strongly feel that call of duty 4 is better. its much more realistic and detailed.[such as the guns.] the maps are much more spread out providing better gameplay. and the game has many many more gametypes.

Battlefield Bad Company shares many aspects of Call of Duty 4 as they were both published by EA.

Bad Company has come out sooner, however, and has taken many of Call of Duty's great features (customizable classes, team goals, etc.) and has added the ability to have more people on a single game, has added vehicles, has added completely destructible environments, and has improved graphics.

Call of Duty 4 is, by today's standards, outdated.

i do agree that bfbc [battlefield bad company]] allows you to play with more people in one match but not only does that improve the chances of having idiots in your server but greatly enhances the games laginess. [glitches] cod4 [call of duty 4] hardly has any lagy games and if it does its because some idiot feels like being the host while playing through a storm.
like you said bfbc did steal customizable classes from cod4 and that was a big factor in cod4 triumph. also lets talk about sniping in the game. sniping is a big factor in shooting games. bfbc dosnt have prone which really does give away your spot. cod4 has ghillie suits to disguise yourself and real live snipers. yes the snipers in bfbc are real to but they dont have the obvious ones that many people like such as the 50 cal and m40a3.

Hmm, a classic debate quandry, opinion or fact? Your entire arguement is composed of what you want.

Bad Company allows you to play with more people in a lagless, glitchless game. In Cod4 you can easily get out of the map for easy kills.
Thank you for admitting that Bad Company did take the one good thing that Cod4 had, customizable classes.
Sniping is supposed to represent skill in shooter games. In Bad company it takes two shots or a head shot to recieve a sniping kill. In Cod4, just simply hit him once in the body while laying prone in a field of grass in your ghillie suit. What a great game, you have taken skill, and molested it until it bled to death. Then you replaced it with camping to add insult to injury.

There are various sniper weaponry that is available and unlockable, except in Bad Company you have a choice and are not forced to wait for level 45 to recieve a gun you really want, you can choose your own path of what you earn.

since playing cod4 makes you wait for a gun it encoureges you to play the game longer and better. it makes you play the game more tactical.
also in bfbc once you get a gun its done with. no 'extras' anymore. in cod4 once you get a gun and love it you can keep working for it by getting headshots and kills with the weapon. this allows you to get cool camo's placed on your gun. even golden skins on your gun. not only does this represent that your a good player but that you are dedicated. also cod4 ranking system is much more intricate. you have levels 1-55 then prestige then levels 1-55 second prestige and so on. this goes all the way to tenth prestige. obviously Infiinity Ward put more thought and time into the game. just think about all the game types they created. this is a big factor. free for all - team deathmatch - team tactical- cage match. last time i checked bfbc has only one gametype. a game called goldrush. now i know that you can DOWNLOAD a game called conquest. thats only two games that DICE decided to come up with. not alot of work there. so this is why i feel that cod4 is better than bfbc i hope you voters decide right and not because the game is newer.

Battlefield does have less gametypes than Cod4, but not to the extent you are proposing (1). The game makes up for it by making the gametypes "meaningful".
Technically speaking, Cod4 has the same amount of gametypes, as it has only Deathmatch, team deathmatch, Sabotage, Search and destroy, and headquarters. The "gametypes" you refer to are more of just playlists, that just choose how many people will be participating in those already mentioned gametypes.

Prestige is a joke. It tricks people into a grindfest, they think each "prestige" is unique, but it just shows how much time they have wasted; they are playing the same game over. I would much rather spend my time on the first game, then choose to start over just for starting over.

Battlefield, for its 1) Fully Destructable Environment 2) Improved Graphics Engine 3) Having Everything CoD4 has and then Improving it 4) A Dynamic Vehicle System, should be considered superior to CoD4.
For these reasons, vote Con.

OMFG! Con says BFBC and COD4 were made by EA! Ea made battlefield bad company, Activision made COD4. I can no longer communicate with brad on a human-human basis.
