Battlefield 3 the Next Best Shooter?

The last Battlefield game came out in 2005.  And no, Bad Company does not count.  Game Informer has the skinny on Battlefield 3 with some exclusive stuff including some great cover art for their next issue.  There is a new trailer and some great stuff that Dice will be doing with their new Frostbite 2 Engine. I’m just wondering if this will have the mass appeal that will draw Call of Duty fans away from their precious and try out something new.

I have high hopes, believe me I do.  But do we really need another military style shooter.  I look forward to new FPS just as much as the next guy, but I am getting a little tired of the “standard” type of shooter.  The types of shooters I am looking forward to are the likes of Bioshock Infinite, BulletStorm, Killzone 3 and First Person Shooters that give something a little different than the standard military shooter, special sauce.  Plasmids, Jetpacks and Leashes seems a little more interesting to me than claymores, C4 or a Russian dictator who wants to kill all the kittens in the world.  Anyway, here’s to truly hoping Battlefield 3 will rock.
