Here's my wishlist I list a lot of FPS's that I like and elements I would like BF3 to include from each.


Battlefield 1942
--------------------
Well, this is my favorite game of all time, so the list is extensive.

1. Vehicles. In my opinion, BF1942 had the best balance of vehicles of any game. The jeeps, tanks, APCs, battleships, carriers, destroyers, submarines, bombers, fighters, torpedos, etc were all extremely well balanced and very fun to play. Planes were fun against people, ships, other planes, or tanks, and likewise all the vehicles were fun against each other. It also wasn't impossible at all for infantry to take out vehicles so they weren't overpowered.

2. Maps. The maps in 1942 were fantastic. Not only were they all fun, but there was a great balance in maps. You had awesome maps like Midway that are enormous and made for dog fighting and naval battles, moderate maps like Battleaxe or Bocage that could work extremely well on an infantry or vehicle level, and smaller maps like Berlin and Stalingrad that were more designed for close combat infantry fighting.

3. Mods. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us modding in BF3. This feature was the one that kept me coming back to 1942 for years. If you liked rifle battles, you could go to a one hit rifle server. If you wanted custom maps, you could do that. If you wanted vehicles tweaked or spawn times changed, you could do that.

4. Community. This is more a feature of how the dynamics of the community worked then actually any conscious decisions of Dice, but the clans and community of 1942 was fantastic. I have literally dozens or hundreds of people I know and like on the game, some quite well.


Battlefield 2
---------------
I haven't had this game for long, so I only have one quick thing to say.

1. Squads. BF2 had fantastic implementations of the squad mechanics. The Commander and Squad Leaders seem to work quite well and make the game about larger tactics as well as skill with guns.


Counter Strike: Source
-----------------------------
This is a different style of FPS from BF, but it still deserves some recognition as a great game.

1. Mods. Lots of games do this now, but CSS seems a good example of streamlined mods. In older games, you had to manually download mods and new maps and put them in your game folder. In CSS, the server takes care of this and makes it much easier.

Battlefield Bad Company 2
---------------------------------
Well, BC2 wasn't quite the game I wanted (though my wants are a little extreme ), but it was still a WHOLE lot of fun and well worth the money.

1. Leveling System. I like how the game has defined classes you level within as well as an overarching level. It keeps things organized and tactical and gives everyone their own role, as opposed to games like CoD where everyone runs around with whatever gun they happen to like best.

2. Graphics and Physics. Bad Company was beautiful, sounded great, and had awesome destruction. I know BF3 will use Frostbite 2.0, so hopefully it will be even better looking, sounding, and physics-ing (see what I did there).


Miscellaneous
-----------------

1. I would love to see a more robust clan system. It would be awesome to register clans and have both leaderboards of every clan (based on user accuracy, k/d, maybe even official clan wars) as well as leaderboards inside each clan showing how each person does. I think this would add some fun competition.

2. I don't want to start a flamewar about this, but I'd like to see prone if possible. If not, it's not that big of a deal.

This is what it needs to be basically. A modern FPS that takes a little bit from every good FPS out there.

BF2 stole my heart the day it came out. And i still play it from time to time till this day. No FPS has this much replay/fun value like BF2(except for Counter Strike ofc)

In order for BF3 to succeed, they're going to have to make it just as simple/original like BF2, but with the latest graphical technology, exciting/strategic maps, squads, better air support, balances and so fourth.

BF3 will either be epic win or something along the lines of BC2. What really pisses me off is that it will not be "pc exclusive" The looks on the console kids faces would have been simply priceless. Srsly tho.... what happened to the days when FPS games on pc had more authority?

I wish BF3 was just a reskin and new guns, that itself would be good enough for me.
