GameVerb: "Tomorrow, the developers of Battlefield 4 plan to launch the reveal trailer at GDC and that’s why we’ve put together this list of the top 5 things we want to see in this trailer."
The 17 min of gameplay on pcgamer looked fantastic...but nothing we havent seen or played through before, just a prettier presentation still crappy writing (daylight streaming through window and guy has to look out window to say its "daytime already?") its petty I know but come on....And WHEN will they remove the f'ing training wheels in regards to the stupid f'ing aiming reticule and glowy enemy markers? My god, nothing ruins the almost photorealistic gameplay and immersion like this crap! Its a gaming mechanic from the f'ing 70's for christ sake. How about developing some actual SKILL as a player instead by LEARNING the weapons characteristics!? Aiming reticule!? Blow me. Is it going to be another gen of same shit, dif pile? Looks like it so far as this gen is already pissing me off with "been there done that" ancient mechanics and no apparent innovations. "but it looks pretty" they'll say; I say so what? Stop spoon feeding us this generic shit please, but apparently game devs are too stupid, or lazy, or scared to take a chance and innovate.
I don't think you know how games work. "still crappy writing (daylight streaming through window and guy has to look out window to say its "daytime already?")" It alludes to the fact that it's very early in the morning, and gives you a rough timeline of past events. Also, removing the crosshair and enemy markers doesn't automatically make a game better. Every one of your suggestions would lead to a worse game.
I dont even understand why you would hope that from an already established and know Ip with its own tropes and habits .. What's next hoping that street fighters do away with specials moves and just pull a full on kinect control schemes because you crave novelty at the expense of everything else ? You want completely new , then ask for new games and ips and support them . Right now i dont have any game that will feature the scope in warfare possibly proposed by BF4 along with maybe finally a return of destruction tied to gameplay . That's new enough in itself for me
Id be happy if I could cook a grenade in BF4 I hate the private server stuff aswel, im forever being kicked by admin for being a good player, 100% rounds on the official Dice servers are not enough
The "glowy" enemy markers seem to be a spot/command function. Wrecker uses it to tell his squad to suppress while he flanks. He also used for air support.
boner stick to cod
As long as it innovates or tries something new. Military shooters are what made the FPS genre a borefest in the first place, so hopefully next-gen isn't just better graphics. Sea maps would be amazing, and I'm not even a fan of the Battlefield series (although I do see its appeal in MP....).
As long as my computer can run it looking like the 17 minute footage, I'll be happy. If I feel like getting emotional & philosophical through brilliant storytelling & impeccable pacing, there's Bioshock One & Infinite; sorry Bioshock 2.
If it does not have submarines in it, I will not buy.
