Quote from: Book Smarts on 2012 Jun 24, 12:44:11It's not the plot that's destroying games, it's the way the companies are trying to get extra dough at the expense of gamers. Battlefield 3 is my favorite example of this since I enjoyed playing the game when it was first released back in last Fall. The first thing I noticed which made me upset was the Online Pass requirement which I was lucky enough to have since my Xbox 360 copy was brand new. If it wasn't, I would've had to pay up another $15 to play the best part of the game which was multiplayer(I never touched the single player campaign). If you got the game used from a rental service or from Gamestop, this would defiantly make you lose your mind since you would have to pay up.In addition to this, another thing that angered me was the first map pack released which cost another $15 and only gave you four new maps. This started to put a damper on my gaming experience since half the servers were cut off from me because I never decided to purchase the pack. The final straw came with the radical redesign of the online half of the game which introduced expensive server rentals that took away the well moderated DICE servers and replaced them with luny non moderated ones. I literally couldn't play a regular match since friendly fire was always on and my own team mates would C4 me when I was actually trying to play seriously. If I got a jet, a team mate would be waiting at the AA gun and shoot me down as I'm taking off. No matter which public rental server I went on, the same thing would always happen. There were still DICE servers, but they always well hidden and even if you were able to find one amongst the rental servers, they always have long queue lines which were always filled with,"premium," players who were promised front of the line permission for coughing up a another one time fee of $60.After a week of the revamp, I got rid of the game and swore never to buy another FPS or anything from DICE again.
