    I recently re-installed BF1942 and Desert Combat so my son could play it (as well as with me over LAN). I forgot how fun Desert Combat was.

    Sure, Battlefield 2/3 look better and are fun to play but neither seems as fun to me as the original game with DC. Perhaps I'm just nostalgic.



    On a side note, I really don't like what they're doing with the newest battlefield games. Rather than single-player playing like an offline version of multi-player, they've instead started making linear SP campaigns that are completely cliche and pretty much suck. One of the coolest things about the original BF1942, BFV and BF2 games was the way you could practice offline in essentially the same setting as online. I realize MP is the bread and butter of the franchise but removing coop in favor of this new SP campaign crap makes no sense to me. If you're going to spend money developing that campaign, I'd just assume see it spent on making a decent coop/bot mode which may actually get some use. [/rant]

    DC was great but Project Reality was the best.

    BF3 sucked ass and so will BF4.

    BF2 for me, it was mind blowing for it's time.

    I agree, I was quite a fan of chopper piloting in Vietnam. There was this one guy I used to always face off against that was just a beast in the Mi-28. We were usually the best pilots in the server, and facing off was fun. F4/Mig 17 face offs also gave me hours of entertainment.

    BF2 the best.
    BF3 is the worst BF game of alltime in my opinion. It dont even feel like a BF game when you play it. It feels like some shoddy hybrid. The balance of the game is shocking to say the least unlike the previous games.

    BF Bad Company 2... but since it's not in the poll I went for BF3. I haven't played the others, because I did not have internet when 1942 was the bomb, and after that when BF2 came out the only game I was playing was WoW for many, many years. :p

    BF2 was the best. Second choice would be BF1942 with mods.

    BF Vietnam was alot of fun too tbh.

    1942 is what got me into online gaming. More so than counter strike. Desert combat was awesome for its time too! Veitnam was alot of fun. Bf2 and pr was amazing. 2142 great times. But everything kinda slipped away with them after that with me and my group of friends. We never got into bc2 or bf3 like the previous titles. For us we really need squads of six too. That part was big for us. 1942 made the trail for all others to follow

    BF2, I was addicted to that game.

    After becoming bored of it no game really replaced it's level of enjoyment.

    I grew to like BC2 & BF3 seeing as there isn't anything else out there that comes close.

    Swap DC for DCX and yes, since that lost server activity I barely game anymore, maybe a few days a month, instead of a few hours a day.
