BF3 all over again in what way?
If you are talking about DLC they released it in a manner that would breathe life into the game and keep their fan following until they released a new BF. Or are you talking about patches to fix things I have not had any bugs since BF3's beta and balancing issues are for MMO's.

I think the game takes up like 25Gb of space on my HD which is just rediculous and shows really lazy programming on the software end.

Still, the game is fun. When Origin has it working well that is.
Honestly *** are you talking about, How would 25Gb of space = lazy programmers? I'm surprised things are not larger with how inexpensive HDD's are.
As far as bugs origin downloaded the updates for the BF4 beta in the background I didn't even know there were updates until I read the news on the server browser.
I personally like the web browser interface for the game with an SSD I can be looking for a game seconds after boot up with zero load time. I can understand not liking it if your internet is horrible though ;p
From a software developers point of view the web browser platform as far as I know kills all piracy because you have to log in and access their databases to play the game at all.
If it truly does kill piracy I wish more PC devs did this and maybe the PC gaming scene would jump start again.

You're entitled to your own opinion. But I think you're dead wrong.

My BF3 folder on my Origin file shows over 34GB for that one game.

My Steam folder (on this PC) which includes Metro LL, Stalker Call of Pripyat, and BFBC is a total of 29.5Gb. That's what I mean by lazy programming. But maybe I'm wrong and there's a better explanation for it.

Gotta give me more than that What am I wrong about?
I'm more on board with the web browser interface because of the possibly no way to pirate the game. And that it is lightning fast to the point I can exit out of a game restart my PC and be playing again in less than 2 minutes and that's without my game being on an SSD.

Like I said space isn't an issue anymore even for SSD's.

Read my above comments again if it still doesn't make sense. I already explained that.

I do get your point about the web browser though. I just don't agree that BF3 needs to take up 34Gb, that's just silly.

I had a blast and was genuinely sad when it ended. I only managed to put about 8 hours in total but I enjoyed ever minute. Playing BF3 now just feels... wrong.
