Finally picked up my copy of Battlefield 4. I loved the series, but after participating in the beta last October, I could tell that there was no way that the game would be ready for prime time in just three weeks, so I didn't pre-order. Best decision I ever made seeing the catastrophic amount of issues the game had over the last seven months. But I heard that the latest patch fixed the vast majority of issues, particularly the "netcode" issues, so I though the time was right. Fortunately, Amazon had the base game 50% off, so I got it for a mere $25 (normal price $50, original price $60...so I feel good about that
In general I agree with the convention wisdom that in the world of Battlefield, it goes BC2>BF3>BF4, but I am still enjoying this latest version.
Now I need to just wait out a sale for the "premium" pass for the extra maps....
