I don't mind DLC for this game. They just need to take their time to make it worth it....however not too long I do want to play this already.

Only read the tag....but I instantly thought of titanfall.
Then I realized - I haven't seen the division marketed as a competitve shooter padded with AI.

So I'll back the vision here. Look forward to playing the division.

Really? I don't remember anybody saying of the latest generation "I expect it to be the same but with bigger worlds" at all.

Really? You didn't read or see any of the Titanfall 6v6 rage articles?

Actually I didn't, but that is beside the point. People want bigger game worlds WITH better quality content and deeper gameplay, not JUST bigger worlds.

At the start of a generation, people don't know the limits of a system so the sky's the limit with regards to expectations.

Again, I have never heard anybody say "I want the same content and experiences as this gen, just with bigger worlds".

You do realize inflating budgets is what killed a lot of studios last gen right? You do realize how disgustingly expensive games would become to make right? Games with both those aspects would have to be very generic to try and appeal to the biggest audience possible.

this is in the top five of this year for me, Halo, Second Son, The Divsion, Monolith's X, and FF15

I doubt we'll se FF15 this year...
