I pretty much waited 6 years before I bought any Battlefield game and I regretted it. COD4 was almost perfect, MW2 was okay. But Black Ops was whack.
COD stopped being fun when I couldn't play the game with tactics while soloing, without losing like crazy. This started in Black Ops, and I really hated it. I had to rush like all those AK74u dicks to get even half the KDR score they had. I also hated the Prestige mode where I had to restart with nothing if I wanted to get to a higher rank.
Battlefield 3 on the other hand is pretty damn fun since I could continue soloing with my "asshole" tactics to get more kills, while still helping my team. I also get to fly helicopters and jets, or drive jeeps with mounted guns and tanks.
In the end, it's all about preference when playing games. I just like being able to do more, instead of rushing into everywhere to get kills.

Battlefield 3 is more about team play. That, and it has destruction and vehicles. The upcoming DLC is awesome. Though, Battlefield 3 is a PC game. On a console, it is still good, but, well, not as good.
Modern Warfare 3 on the other hand, is completely solo-able. You do not get rewarded for working in a team. I think of Modern Warfare 3 as a console game. It just fits better on consoles.
Myself, I am a PC gamer, so I'd pick Battlefield 3 over Modern Warfare 3 any day, tough I understand the people who do not.

only been playing COD last evening but i will say two things--COD maps almost seem claustrophobic compared to Battlefield's. not sure if that is a good thing or bad yet because i do like fast action sometimes. and COD's characters seem more solid than Battlefield's. i'm reminded of how Spiderman looked in the first movie--he seemed almost too light and wispy. COD characters seem to have more weight to them.

Battlefield 3 a very good game but not worth the current price tag. Multiplayer has cheaters (though they were present during the beta), single player can be beaten in about 3 hours on "Easy"
Have not tried modern warfare 3 yet but so far there are complaints about lack of new things and many are considering it to just be an expansion where a few extra missions and maps are added (when the game crashes, it labels it's self as modern warfare 2)

I prefer Battlefield 3. Every COD ever since MW1 is just reskinned with new guns and maybe perks.
