Since they will be free to play on PS4... Just wondering if these games are actually good enough to keep someone busy while more games come out? I don't know how much longer I can keep playing CoD year after year... Destiny is the only other mp shooter that interests me so far.

well i liked planetside 2, but if you like COD you prob won't like it.
Its a F2P game, so some people think its pay to win.
To be fair, the starting weapon is actually a very good weap

and you can play the game without killing anyone and contributing to your outfit/nation.

So yeah if you're an arcade FPS gamer, you prob won't like it.

Warframe i dunno, never played but if you're a co-op guy you'll prob like it.

Warframe is not too bad, but from the few hours I put into the beta it's not too bad. I got bored of it after playing few times because of the repetitive features in the game. It's definitely worth a try, especially because it's free.

Pros:
Good combat - melee/guns
decent co-op experience
Free

Cons:
Repetitive environments and enemies
Grinding to level up and earn money

Watch out for Warface(creators of Crysis) in the future. It's a F2P co-op and competitive multiplayer styled like COD. I think I had the most fun out of this one on the Co-op side. It just finished a closed beta, but it's supposed be released some time.

I thought Planetside 2 was crap, but I am not into slow-paced FPS.

Just gonna say you guys are not giving planetside 2 a chance. Its a lot of fun if you have a friend with you. Many people play in large groups. Its probably one of the best free to play games i've ever played. Graphics are downright awesome if your pc can support it.

the problem is that it has a pretty high learning curve so it makes it difficult for new players. I watched some YouTube vids to get a better understanding

Planetside 2 is really good IMO. Biased maybe b/c I know people that worked on the game, but I like what they did with it.

Warframe is awesome. You're a ninja robot parkour master with swords and guns killing aliens on spaceships and I think that's all that needs to be said about that.

You know what is also awesome if you have a friend with you? Umm just about anything. Also, graphics looked like garbage on my GTX 670 at 1920x1200.

I was not a big fan of Planetside 2, even though I loved the original Planetside. I have no desire to try Warframe based on Youtube videos.

Planetside 2 is large scale combat so it's nothing like COD. I found it boring because sometimes it can take awhile before you finally get into a firefight. Seems like it might be fun if you're part of a huge clan but I'm not cool with that kind of time commitment. Also, people pay to have all of the guns and if you don't put any cash into it then you have a very limited amount of guns. It takes awhile to unlock new guns and vehicles also. The combat was not very satisfying either.

Warframe, from what I could tell from Youtube videos is just a third person shooter co-op online game. Would rather play Defiance or Mass Effect 3 online.

fyi the guns you buy in PS2 isn't much better than your starting gun.
Some are actually worse lol.

Regardless of effectiveness, it's still dull and boring only having a few guns to start with. I get that it's a F2P game and the devs need to make money, just pointing that out to the OP. Game will require significant time and money.

again you don't have to go guns blazing in PS2.
also i guess you said it, if you're not in an outfit, you prob won't have fun lone wolfing as its not that type of game

True, you could definitely get away with playing it for free, but when I tried it when it first came out the cert gain was really slow. If it were a game I was serious about playing for awhile I would probably drop $10-$20 to at least get started on some unlocks.
