I used to be a huge fan of the BF games but they have failed to expand over the years. The mission sizes should be huge by this day and age. There's just too much going on with 64 players in such small zones.
Also, the game has been completely dumbed down. The scope glare is a perfect example of this fact. What ever happened to days when PC MP games were hard? Hunting down snipers used to be challenging. The more times they would kill us, the more satisfying it would be when we finally located them and then killed them. Now, all one needs to do is look in their general direction and you can see a giant scope glare shining at you. That's just lame.
I sure hope that the scope glare s gone in BF4, but I'm sure Dice will just add more dumbed down "features" too suck in more noobs who don't want a proper challenge.
