I hate how they make BFV sound like a mod for BF1942 b/c they are coming out with BF2 grrr welll i'd like to hear ur ideas and what u think about this:mad:
Ummm how do they make it sound like a mod? There is a Vietnam war mod for BF1942, I dunno whatcha talking about
Bfv does seem alot like bf1942, it didn't when they were talking about it before they released it. But at leased we get Bf2.
It does seem like BF in many ways, I agree. I don't care, the more games the merrier. Just think back to 1996, how many good games were there to choose from, especially online ;)

Going on pervading attitudes and stylistic approaches to grammar that I constantly see in these forums, it seems to me the majority of people you addressed that to, Beef, were around 4-10 years old back in 1996. But, you're so right. I don't care if it's a lot like BF1942 or not. I have fun with this game and I have fun with BF1942... as you said, the more games, the merrier. This is a great time to be a gamer but unfortuantely, more people seem to enjoy looking for negatives (or even just making them up based on a lack of knowledge) instead of enjoying what's out there.
No kidding. Anyone remember the game called BLOOD by Monolith productions? That was one of my favs to play online... with 56k modem and horrible graphics, but the gameplay was so much fun!
Man, you said it, gamers have it MADE these days, with these powerfull machines and hundreds of titles to choose from. And they wonder why games have bugs in them from the start. I really don't think people realize what is involved in creating a video game.
Very true Beefy!!! I remember having to dial to a BBS to play on-line text games and mud's.

:lol: There are some older people here! I remember years ago dialing to my local bbs on my 386 with my 2400baud modem for "online" games and downloads (soooo slow!). The good ol'days :beer: Anyone here play starflight or police quest?
BeeF FlaPsNo kidding.

Trade Wars 2002. Crossroads of the Elements. All online games, all had nearly nothing to offer other than ANSI graphics and text... all kept many people busy for years. Hell – some people are still playing Crossroads.[/color] [color=black]Anyhow, calling a game like BFV total crap really boggles my mind. It’s not like I’m some 80 year old guy, but I’ll tell ya… game wise, kids these days have it made. Games look and sound awesome now, and there really are hundreds to choose from.[/color] [color=black]Back when I was a kid I had Atari 2600. To me it rocked, and I can only think of a few titles that really did suck. All the games were essentially the same: Blocks of color kind of making shapes of stuff, and a basic objective. These days there's half a million magazines devoted to telling you whether a game is garbage or not. Early 80's you had to rely on the guy at the store to know what the game was like... and that really sucked cause you were limited to the few opinions at the store. Oh and when I say store I mean it was Toys R Us, cause there was no specialized game store then. No EB, Gamestop, Babbages, etc.; Just your local toy store that carried games.[/color] [color=black]When Nintendo/Genesis hit the market, things got a little better. Graphically the games were better, sure, but games weren't all so similar either. You still had to rely on the guy at the store to know if a game was cool or not... til Nintendo started releasing the "Fun Club" newsletter. Sure it was Nintendo propaganda but you'd know more about the games than anyone at the store could tell you. EB and Babbages made their mark around then, so you could stop going to Toys R Us and check out the other cool thing that was becoming popular... Computer games. It took a long time for games – computer games especially – to be really good.[/color] [color=black]The first one everyone went apeshit for was “Doom” of course, and I was there, downloading it with my 14.4 modem from a local BBS. Then spawned a few other basic FPS clones (Hexen, Witchaven). Then it was Quake, which was a little better graphically (oh and you could aim up). Then it got crazy.[/color] [color=black]There’s a lot of crap that has to go on in order for a game to be made, and I think a lot of that is taken for granted… hard to explain but I think it’s because so many bad games come out, people do not realize how difficult it is. If you want to witness first-hand how frustrating it is to make a ‘good game’ try making a great NWN module. It’s a pain in the ass, especially by yourself.[/color] [color=black]Meh – long story summed up: Games today CAN suck and unfortunately a lot of the DO suck, but compared to what used to be the standard we’ve got it made.[/color]
OMFG!!!!!! I remember playing trade wars on my Commodore 64. Had a 300 Baud modem, that you hade to dial the phone first, and when you got the handshake, had to quickly unplug the cord from the handset, and plug into the modem before the handshake stopped. Those were the days. And no, i am not a fossil, I am 30.
