I really wish I could get excitement back for this franchise. I was one of the original who bought BF1942 in 2002 and thought it was one of the best multiplayer experiences back then. It was so grand scale in comparison to everything out at that time.
yes i was there, it was also around the time when I was frequenting Blues News in that era
I remember the first one especially, (and much less with BF2) there was a significant feeling of simulated physics and ballistics to the combat, (leading targets, arcing fire, etc) which has not ever returned IMHO... it was not "real" physics, but BF1942 had a very signature feel to it that is unlike the rest of the series
IIRC there was a vietnam mod back then as well, and it was the ultimate at that time... so good
