OMG you guys!


contrast with the just announced Call of Duty trailer which has taken the franchise way to far into the future it might as well be halo.

last check, it's got about 1.2 million dislikes!

I was one of the 'dislikers' on the COD video.  That shit is a joke.  On the flipside... I am tentatively looking forward to BF1.  I almost exclusively play games in the BF series (ask Knuck).  BF4 is amazing and we're approaching 3 years in on the game and it's still VERY strong in terms of numbers of people playing actively.

I like the modern 'current day' shooters so I'm curious to see how BF1 turns out.  It looks damn good though.  As one person put it... 'motherfucking tactical shovel... HELL YES!'.  :)

I really used to like the Day if Defeat (DoD) CS mod back in the day. It was also a WW1 theme. BF1 looks pretty cool. If I had a home computer, and if that computer ran windows, and then if I found time to play a game, i'd totally check it out...

Yes.... because it's WWI... I know, it's strange.  Not sure what they'll do for the next in the series?

WoW was so many years ago.  Now, KSP or Fallout is a different story...

Not sure what KSP is and I could never get into the Fallout games.  FPS is my genre followed by sports/driving/simulation.

What do I think of it?  IDGAF.  If I thought about all the stuff I potentially downstream support as a result of everyday purchases, I'd have the same moral conundrum (even if I had one about this).  He doesn't give any facts or data about how much those licensing costs are so I don't know if that pays them enough to potentially downstream fund a terrorist plot or if it simply pays the salary of a few line workers that build the guns.  Either way, there isn't anything in that video that makes me double think playing or purchasing the games that I do.  I appreciate the realism.  In fact, that's the one reason I play the BF series over others (for the realism).
