playing a lot of different games at the moment, put this on the other day, it's such an emotional investment. playing rush solo last night and getting steamrolled, lost 6 terminals. then the hive mind kicked in and collectively my team took a stand, game's freaking awesome.

Aye,

was fluting around at the weekend and didn't really have any plans to play anything in particular, said I'd fire this up for a look to see how many were still playing. hopped into a nearly full server on Caspian Border and had a great 45 minutes with the entire game coming down to only a few tickets. It really turned out to be one of the best battlefield games in the end.

had no trouble getting games, only thing is Metro seems to be gone from my system, not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing.
I used to love COD and what made me leave it was how they let each instalment get hacked after around 9 months, you can't go back to the old games anymore. In fairness to the developers here you can still enjoy the older titles, on console anyway, not sure what PC is like.

I see jackfrags had a recent video up on youtube playing on one of the china rising maps, and he commented that theres still plenty servers active. Its hard enough to get a game on many of the DLC maps on XB1 anyway. Personally, while BF1, is a fine game, theres just something about it that doesn't do it for me, I much prefer the modern setting.

Battlefield 1 may be the best looking game I have but I agree I much prefer the modern setting, there's just so much going on in BF4

I'm in the same boat on the setting - much prefer modern. There's so much more to do in terms of vehicles, gadgets and weapons.

I liked BF1 but got bored of it quite quickly, still playing BF4.

In one game yesterday I was a medic, support and engineer, kept switching every time I died, couldn't settle on what I wanted to be. All worthwhile at the end when an armoured car crashed through a wall and fortunately I had an RPG.

Theres an amazing sense of satisfaction on getting 3 c4's planted on a tank or APC and getting a squad wipe. regardless of whether or not I died as well - Worth it!

It was a great game. Watched only a minute or two of that video so don't know if I missed anything important. I stopped playing after my father got a smart phone a few years back and was hogging the internet(I have a slow connection).

I would be playing and it would glitch out. I would see a guy next thing he would be standing in a different place. Had to stop playing.

BF4 now* is technically the best Battlefield released but with some of the worst maps in the series.

So for Bf5** Make better maps and upgrade the engine without the early access thing this time.

*Whoa it was bad when it came out, took nearly a year to sort it out.

** Continuity 5

Do you mean BF6 as we just had BF5?.

BF4 didnt have bad maps, its maps were far better than BF1 and BF5, which for me had some stickers, BF5 once the issues were ironed, was held back due to the maps.

What really held BF4 back, and stops me from playing it now, are the graphics, they made it for the old consoles so it looks horrendous especially anything at distance.
Another big issue, and this is more personal but the lack of controller settings.
I need to be able to edit the sensitivity settings and adjust the dead zone and this sort of customisation was completely absent(despite coming in BF1).
I'm used to playing with high sensitivity so you need to be able to adjust the dead zone so the tiniest press moves very slowly so you can track soldiers.

And the Megladon is back.

`go free my ancient friend bring joy and this awesome gift to the greatest community of all``

So if you solve it you get something.

"greatest community" he must have forgotten the launch.

I have been playing this all weekend.

Think it's time to relive one good moment of hilarity from BF4 history
