Wouldn't it be great if servers were sectioned off by age groups? They could have some means of verifying your age (credit card or drivers license #) and in you go with other "grown-ups". I would be on the "geriatric" server, i think.

The spawning tking was in the very first BF2 server I went to. I will also never let FF go, games are more fun for me with them.

I haven't seen racists in BF2 yet, but I've seen one kid that seemed to think everyone that killed him was a "faggot."

CS:S is the worst. I can't play a game without getting a kid coming on whining about "spics," "niggars" and "fagets." When called on it, some eventually say they aren't actually racist/homophobic, they just think it gets in the mind of the opposition. Right...

Porn sprays crack me up, too. I often see a group of people standing around them. Then comments, from the 14 year olds bragging about being high and not-really-racist, along the lines of "my gf is that hawt" or "my gf is going down on me right now!!!1!"

Right...

But online is usually just kids with one-word vocabularies, spawn-killing tkers, and people acting racist/sexist hoping to "distract" the other team.

Man, I'm glad that I don't play on the servers that you do... because I rarely see that kind of crap. Sure, it happens, but I'd say it's on the order of once or twice a month for me (playing nightly, on open servers with reasonably good to very good players).

As for the spawn killing tker's -- don't play with friendly fire on. Problem solved (well... mostly).

I know a lot of people who don't do online MP though, primarily because they aren't very good at FPS's and just get slaughtered. And with a real life and kids they don't have the time to devote to getting better. I can certainly understand that.

Oh god, at least there aren't custom sprays in BF2, ala CS. Quite a few times i've come across a group of teammates standing around a porno spray someone painted on the wall. Even funnier though are the guys with animated sprays of the Terrorist or CT player models. I have to sheepishly admit to putting a few bullets in those sprays myself

Don't even get me started on the goatse sprayers

I'll always prefer single player to multiplayer.


The exception is when I'm playing with people I know. But online is usually just kids with one-word vocabularies, spawn-killing tkers, and people acting racist/sexist hoping to "distract" the other team.

No thank you. I'll take a single player experience any day, and if a game has bots that are half-competent I'll take them, too.

418. what a fucking joke Jun 13, 2005, 14:32 Mitch
 
I'm a huge DC fan and was really looking forward to this demo. What a pig! Map load times are unbearably long. Gameplay is slow and stilted. They took out all shoulder fired anti air weapons. The graphics are certainly an improvement over BF 1942, but nothing to write home about. The interface has not been improved upon, which has sucked since BF 1942.

I'm gonna wait on this for a while. I'm hoping EA will get their shite together after a few patch cycles.

FANBOY. I am not a fanatic and do not express fanaticism I express Fanboy-ism.

SP for BF2? Who the @#%@# plays single player? I didn't totally hate HL and HL2 until it borged into the nightmare that is CS and steam.

I would say HL2 was one of the worst FPS in the last 2 years. (I would rather play Doom3 again...) Far-Cry was original, fun, beautiful, and didn't require some glorified browser search bar to run in the background. HL2 tried to be innovative and pretty and tell a story and it just fell flat.

The really telling thing about HL1 is that I still recall A LOT of moments in the first game. So much that just blew me away and was really entertaining.

The second one is more story of remembering the frustration with loading every few min, and how progress through the game felt disorganized out lacked a sense of unity. Besides the part where your pet robot charged the enemy troopers and riding that little coffin around in the end, the entire experience was utterly forgettable. You may say well HL set the bar so high how could they ever match it? FarCry did. I remember a ton of scenes and moments in that. Especially those damn pink dogs lunging at me in the dark. Or how after throwing a grenade the lights hanging from the ceiling would be swinging around. Not to mention the fact it came out WAY AHEAD of anything else. HL2 really lost me with it's maze like levels. There is no excuse to build such linear designs anymore. Farcry raised the bar, and HL2 just did what worked in the past. Not inovative, just flashier graphics. Would have been inovative if they made their enviroment fully destructable. All I feel for that game is disappointment.

CS:S was just the first of at least two, if not more, free official multiplayer additions to the game.

Whine all you want about Ravenholm, but I have no doubts that the single-player portion of BF2 will be completely and entirely useless. Meanwhile HL2 SP was either the best FPS of the past two years, or the second best, depending on where Far Cry falls. I'd say it's a very close call. Multiplayer gives you CS:S, which is damn amusing for lots of quick killing, HL2DM, which is damn amusing for lots of mindless killing, and more to come I'm sure.

Both games have a lot to offer and a lot to gripe about. I find it a bit odd to totally hate one and think it needs to die. Save that for a game that deserve it, like $54.95 Doom 3.


I find your fanaticism (and anti-fanaticism) almost as creepy as you thinking shudder and shutter are the same word.

In other news, BF2 has kept me from beating Far Cry all weekend. It has flaws, and I'm sick of the map, but this is probably now a full-price buy game. Even HL2 wasn't one of those for me.

BF2 WILL REIGN SUPREME.

HL2, you have nothing on BF2, which is largely a ripoff of a mod for the original game! Huzzah BF2, muzzah HL2!

BF2 is a complete upgrade to the mod Desert Combat. CS:S is a ripoff of CS improving almost nothing, and certainly adding virtually nill to the game. Valve doesn't inovate it just releases the same old crap with flashy graphics.

*shutter* ravenholm *shutter* god HL2 sucked. Felt like I the designers changed where the story was going with every level. I have no desire to ever play that game again. I'm just about to get a new Vid card, today I think, and I really want to play Far-Cry again just so I can see the graphics on my new vid card. HL2 nor steam will be installed on my HD after formatting, that nightmare is over thankfully.

F-OFF VALVE. Take your DoD:S (another mod ripoff they will be porting into Source) and shove it right up your @$$. It'll smell real nice sitting next to steam!

LONG LIVE BF2!

I am missing the F Key commands though...

No kidding, I've noticed this too. I really liked the old system where if I needed a ride I just hit FX-FX and poof the message appeared, now I have to hold down a key, move the mouse around till it's over the message then click it. Looks easier on paper but in game the first method took less than 1 sec once you had it memorized, this one takes between 2-3 seconds.

Fuck you, Valve! Fuck you for releasing a game tons of people like! Fuck you for putting some innovation into the game, maybe not as much as some people hoped, but you tried! Fuck you for trying to keep PC gaming in the headlines! You should have taken your high profile game to the consoles, because there aren't enough developers going over there already!

Personally, I liked HL2, and as far as I see, the customer wins by having two great games available to play.
