    Battlefield 1942 = full of c4 whores and fucktards smashing their jeep into a plane on the tarmac that was being piloted by one of their team in order to make the plane crash (denied!) :rolleyes:

    battlefield 2 was a bugfest reportedly.

    not putting much hope on b3

    This is EA we're talking about. Chances of this coming out been a quality polished game is nil. $20 bet when the game is released they will be a patch to go along with it simultaneously.

    "After saying that the download-only Battlefield 1943 has been "selling well," "

    It's not out yet? :confused:

    Yeah, it's not due out on 360/PS3 until the end of the month. Maybe he was confused about the popularity (not sales) of Battlefield Heroes?

    BF3! Yes! It'll be a bugfest but the Frostbite engine is fantastic and will make it even more awesome.

    BF games have also never really been taken seriously by gamers (online hardcore gamers) it's more spam fest and there's so many glitches and shit it makes it hard to take it seriously.

    BF1942 was fun, but that's where it ended for me.

    BF:BC on the PS3 was fun (played the demo for 15 minutes) and the destructible environments (finally) give it a fresh (and much needed) play.

    Who gives a shit about 'hardcore gamers' though? BF1942 and BF2 are some of the best times in gaming that i've experienced, despite the huge amounts of bugs and glitches, and they're both still filling up servers.

    I'm not saying anyone gave a shit about them, but I'm sick of buying BF games that are so glitchy and buggy. I don't want to pay $90 for a beta.

    I never got into BF2, was more of a Call of Duty person. Will be interested to see how this one turns out.

    Remember the crying about the bullshit screenshots EA released of BF2 that were really pre-rendered garbage?

    I wonder if it will happen again...

    Loved BF2, to bits, 1942 desert combat, omfg, back in the day...

    I just hope this isn't another COD4 with regard to the lacklustre maps and content.

    Eh, quit with the negativity. Only one way to find out which way this is going.

    I do wonder how it'll fit with BC2 coming.

    I presume BC2 will continue BC's push towards smaller close quarters, high intensity maps with 24-32 players max, and BF3 will be more of a classic BF game with 64 (probably 128 max) player massive maps.

    If thats the case, I actually see BC2 being the better game for me, I wouldn't be the only one who had a ton more fun with BC on the consoles than I ever did with BF2 on the PC.

    If EA didn't force you to play on US hosted servers in BC then I would have like it a whole lot more. I could only stand to play about 5 hours of MP as the lag got to me, but I really liked what I did play.
