Well BF can bollox frankly

The hit detection is as shit as ever unless your American in which case its 2 rounds to kill my fat ass

Choppers are invulnerable to AA so theres no point in trying to knock em down

Unbalance garbage

Wonder if I can get my money back

That's true, AA is crap at taking down anything but stick a tank shell into one and it's goodnight.

In my view, BF is becoming more and more like Fortnite. Santa skins and dressing your specialist up like the big man himself.

Why couldn't they just make another BF and modernise it slightly?

BF3 was excellent. I had a go at 4 recently and I didn't think it was an improvement. From the sounds of things they have got steadily worse / sillier.

A remake of BF3 with bigger maps for more players and updated visuals would seem to be the obvious solution.

BF4 was a disastrous event at launch but now it's still being played by a ton of people. I have 950+ hours on it and it really is a fantastic shooter in my opinion. The trouble started when BF1 and 5 came along. (Hard-line doesn't count!)

I manage to take down choppers, just wait on rooftops till they're close and don't have time to fire counter measures and job jobbed

Apparently the .50 anti-material rifle is quicker at destroying armour than the rocket launcher. It only takes five shots from the .50 to destroy a tank - that's ridiculous.
 
In fact this may be the last game im buying

Missus has ordered me one of these bad boys for the dreaded big birfday

Pah!

Go what I went through this morning with A.R.E.A and then you can complain.

Every time I got killed by Monolith at the Brain Scorcher site, the bloody game crashed. A short while after I'm back in, I'm dead again, and the game crashes again. I actually stuck it out for a while before I nuked the install with fire and tried again. Of course, none of the saves from the previous installation work properly - the same fault occurs. Bugger. There goes dozens of hours of progress.

Completely new installation, a new start, and I finally get the pre-start skill points and money allocation to work, so I'm not in the Zone in just my shreddies carrying a Swiss Army Knife, and a new thingy starts occurring - if I have an attachment for a weapon, like a scope or a suppressor, in my inventory, and I deign to look at it, I get a crash to desktop error.

Cue another try at installing it. Feck my life.

I'm having that trouble tonight with Flight Sim 2020.

Load it up - about five minutes to get it to the menu. Make a flight plan. Choose the plane, weights etc. Another ten minutes. Load in and crashes to Xbox "desktop". Three times so I've binned it and playing Snowrunner.

BF4 / BF1 are now considered the best of the series.

Personally I think BF1 is the most immersive of them all and it really does give you the best overall experience, I mean great maps from throughout the war and across all theatres, plenty of ships, planes, tanks (even cavalry!) what more could you want?

Funnily enough after BF1 many of the original devs who worked on BF3 / BF4 / BC1 / BC2 had left the company, hence the drop in quality, game play and overall shift to a COD / Fortnite style of game in order to chase the casual kiddie market.

Yeah I couldn't get into 1 at all. I tried my hardest. I barely gave 5 a try as it rubbed me up the wrong way straight off.

Totally agree with you about the CoD/Fortnite style. I *might* try Insurgency: Sandstorm when funds allow.

Unfortunately they can make a lot more money from the parents of kids/teenagers having meltdowns because they want the latest skin pack and loot boxes so this kind of crap is here to stay. I rarely play online games anymore though, not many of my mates are gamers so it means playing with randoms who largely do my tits in.

Play UFC4 and just knock the fcukers out using a ridiculous looking created fighter, great fun.

Imagine my disappointment when I found out that in real life an Apache can't winch an ammo crate up off the floor and be fully rearmed like in Desert Strike! Also how come in military games your character can sprint for miles in full fighting order but when I try it in real life I'm reduced to a shuffle while breathing heavily after a few hundred metres :scratch:
If only that were true! LOL!

I swear you have shares in EA. ;)

I don't do the online bits as I just get slaughtered but i play the career mode often. I'm currently turning Ciryl Gane into the GOAT.

If you like realistic shooters, looks like an update for ground branch is imminent. They have redone animations, added better ragdoll physics and two maps - one of which might be an accurate recreation of OBL's compound...
