Quoteworthy - Bach on Bad Company 2

"I don’t know why, but I always feel ashamed about the games I’m involved in making. I can’t even bring myself to start up “Battlefield Bad Company 2,” our last game, because I feel so ashamed. I know it is a great product but still I only see the things we could have done better." -- DICE's Patrick Bach. Thanks GameSpot.

I can't look back at my old posts with anything but shame. I can't even read them, because I realize how they just didn't live up to my expectations. I mean, I know they are great posts, but still, they could be so much more...if only...

Reaaaaaaal constructive, that. But then, a Bluesnews comment always has to be filled with ridiculous, over the top cynicism to show how cool you all are.

Most of you guys couldn't write something balanced if your lives depended on it.

He just trolls on purpose to get reactions like yours, click on his name for many more examples. Do you not see the irony in what you just posted btw? It was over the top, a bit ridiculous, unbalanced and filled with cynicism.

Most betas are glorified demos these days, the industry uses them in largely the same ways and they are even heavily included in marketing now. That excuse no longer flies like it used to. I don't see anything wrong with this quote though. Bach is just expressing a commonly heard sentiment from people who create anything, the feeling that you could have done better or improved it in some way.

I gotta agree with this. For some reason the word demo makes pubs scared, so they release betas instead. It's like a overlaying excuse that there are bugs in the game so deal with it. A demo means the finished code base(which never get's released anyways with all the day one patches). So you get held up to a false standard that Beta's don't. The problem with Beta's that pubs don't realize is that even public ones are suposeto get the latest and ever update so you can TEST the game so it's released right. They REFUSE to do this, and just give empty promised that it will be fixed by launch.

The only games that do this, not even do it well/right but do it, are MMO's with test servers.

Yes, because one mega-troll's comment is absolutely indicative of everyone who posts here. Glad you're here to share your whining with the rest of the world. You're a real breath of fresh air.

BF:BC2 was excellent. Yes, it had flaws, but the moaning about it and many other games make it unsurprising that few developers engage with their customers.

Is that why he made Bad Company 2: CoD Edition and called it BF3?

What makes BF3 more "Call of Duty" than BC2?

I like BF3. Most the guys that I've seen complaining about it have only played long enough to get shot up a few times and cry because they aren't dominating like they did in tribes 2. I'm not naive enough to think that all of the bugs and glitches will be fixed before release, but it's a fun game and there is a lot going for it.

If that guy only applied the same "shame" to Battlefield 3, it would be a better game.

The amount of bad errors with BF3 is amazing, Testers should be shot cos the maps I played were terrible.

What a shame you didn't learn anything and BF3 is filled with bugs and very questionable design decisions.

Don't worry, next year's BC3 will solve everything! And in two years, BF4!
