And here I am just wanting another Bad Company game.
Yep, same here. BC2 on PC was pretty epic back in 2010. I'm hopefully optimistic for a new one on PC but if they actually don't release anything for 18 months that will open the door for Activision to release something epic next year as a follow-up to Modern Warfare. That could be the nail in BF's coffin.

I guess complacent would be the proper word in that case. Problem standing is that with the majority of people not caring, nothing will get better any time soon.
I think we're starting to see a paradigm shift against it, but the change is small. The backlash about (of all things!) Fallout 76 seems quite real, and there's the small efforts to prevent lootboxes like in Belgium etc. What's really needed is something to de-incentivize the $.99- $3.99 microtransactions that don't feel like anything at the time but make gobs of money when spread across huge playerbases.
BF1 was good but BFV was a sad re-skin cash-grab with some NVIDIA cash thrown in to make it the RTX launch title for some reason. Hopefully they take their time and do it well.
I thoroughly enjoyed BF1. I didn't spend BF3/4 levels of time on it, but it was pretty fun. I did buy BFV, but I don't think I've spent more than a couple of hours on it, in stark contrast with the thousands of hours I spent on its 3 predecessors.
Maybe DICE and EA will finally figure out this time around that boomer mechanics are not a good look.
Uh oh, another one. Still waiting on the real BF3.
Not holding my breath on this one. The team that made BF fun was canned long ago.
New BFs gameplay is like chickens minus heads running around.
BC2 was sorta okay for teamplay, but still could lone-wolf it all oneself.
