No. DICE have ruined the Battlefield series just fine all on their own.

You'd be surprised.

Corporations here use focus groups and testers to see what is "interesting" to players.

These companies see that to the majority -- strictly through sales, Call of Duty is top dog in FPS. They are trying to open up to a wider range of audience.

Its sad, it sucks, but that's how it is. I won't be buying any new Battlefield or EA title from here on out. I'll wait to catch them for like $10, which will happen within months of the release.

Surely using statistics to see what we actually want is the best way to ensure that the most people are happy though?

I mean sometimes that's going to work in your favour, and other times it's not.

The point is that the use of such a scientific approach is without a shadow of a doubt going to make the average gamer happier than they would be without it.

If there's a problem, I guarantee it's from faulty analysis (which happens more often than you'd expect); this can be solved by hiring better statisticians.

BF4 launch has left a taste in my mouth i can't shake. $110 smh.

Still play loads but still waiting on the CTE update for consoles.

Not buying hardline.

The horrendous "music" since BF3 has been awful as well. Bring back that Battlefield 2 feel in both music and gameplay. Hell, even Bad Company 1 or 2.
