I bought the game based on some (now-bias) reviews. I also bought it based on previous BF experience and because I like the franchise and what DICE once used to be. A proper developer based company. Not a money bought-out company.
I was speaking the other day with my cousin about BC2 Vietnam and how much of a blast we had in that - so many fun moments - we couldn't stop laughing.
You might say: "Why not stop playing then" - because BF4 is the only game I can really say is a "complete" shooter. By that I mean gameplay wise - not netcode or anything like that. If I were to take the netcode and whatnot issues - it should be classified as a console arcade port.
And in all honesty - that's the underlining problem of BF4 on PC's - it's a console port, whereas before it never was.
We didn't know that MS or Sony limited the bandwidth for games like BF - ie their tick rates etc. And now we know. With that knowledge, it's easy to put together the puzzle. Due to consoles, PC master race gets affected. It has put a lot of people off on PC and thus people like myself will think very very hard, before buying another EA game.
