Ihave yet to play a COD etc on multiplayer. i don't like other people.

I only play the campaigns.

I have loved all the other cods single player campaigns and the only issue is you can do them in a day.

Except the original COD, that one is rock solid, that took me weeks, but the others I knocked out in an evening.

Worst was Homefront, done that in 3 hours, glad I only borrowed it.

Yup, homefront sucked in single player.

You know you can mute the sound and not hear them. Just because you dont like people doesn't mean you cant play multiplayer.

Honestly it sounds a little creepy when you put it that way

For me, it sucks, because I'm not into playing online. I game so rarely, that going up against people that have spent 12 hours a day since a game came out. I've tried it a handful of times over the years with different games, and it's just not my thing. Maybe playing on a private server with people I know, but the rest of it can go frag itself.
I'm with you. I like playing FPS but am in the exact same boat as you. I also have the added problem of living in a ranch style house so my gaming pit is at the end of the hallway from where my 2-year-old and prego wife sleep. I can't sit and utter commands/communicate with people when it's 9:30 at night and my wife and kid are trying to sleep.

That's why I like playing through Halo and Gears since there's a decent story and pacing.

Back when I was a DINK I would walk into a GameStop and buy two or three new games at a time. I'd also sell my games back to them without batting an eye. Now I'm about 8 months behind the curve on new games and I buy/sell used games on eBay. Look for code words like: Adult owned, non smoking house to tip you off that you won't get a trashed disk. Set your search to look for ending now and pounce on games. I just snagged Halo Reach for $15.

I always assumed games like BF and COD were team-based multiplayer which meant that you had to communicate with people.

The only FPS I play online is Halo because of the Slayer mode.

That's how they should be played but unless you know 3 other people and are in the same squad with VOIP, it's pretty hard to communicate. Although that's how we (ADV BF3 Platoon) play. Much more fun with friends.

MW3 in 5 days. That is all. A little over 4 days since it comes out at midnight.

And yeah, playing with friends is a ton of fun, but I play solo all the time and still have a blast. I don't mute anyone, but I don't talk much either. Too many 14 year olds with horrible mouths. Some people are cool though, and I have ended up on squads that would dominate just by talking with them for a while and playing half-way decent.

I have been thinking of getting the headset/mic combo so I can have the volume turned up but not disturb anyone and be able to talk quietly but still be heard by teammates.

I got a wireless set of sennheizers a few years back for this.

Can crank it up all I want.

I couldnt give a shit about talking to people though.

I may actually break down and buy the iron deposits a game console for Christmas ( mistake.....)
I'm sure this has been covered but I'm too lazy to search.

So the question is: Xbox or Playstation?

Playstation nets you a bluray player.

Everyone I know has an X Box so it was an easy call, I've only ever seen 1 PS3 in someones home. They are all but equal in game play but with the X Box you get a MUCH better controller
