I've never seen an online community like this one.

Back when I was grinding for kills, I saw a lot of weird people playing. I looked at some of their trophy lists and noticed that they had gotten 10k kills many years ago! Despite this, many had not complete more than 2 campaign missions. Very strange.

Basically, these people only have this game and play it hours nearly every day. Many of them are from South America or the Middle East. I understand if they cannot afford many games, but why pay for Internet to play only this game? Seems kind of pointless.

 

There were a good number of American players too. One of them had his mic on and was basically talking to himself. Others seem to be children.

Battlefield, just like Call of Duty is very popular among people who don't give a shit about singleplayer in games. When I was playing Call of Duty daily, I knew a guy who never finished any campaign in the entire series, but I've played with him in a team for over 3k hours.

Some people literally only play mmos and nothing else. Nowadays there are people who only play battle royales.

I do think some of these Bad Company players are a bit off in the head though.

Most people don't care for trophies and a lot of people don't care for the single player aspect of a game that's more focused on its multiplayer. Battlefield in particular has terrible single player campaigns, so I can't imagine most people would want to bother with it for their enjoyment.

 

I also don't see what's wrong with wanting to play only one game online all the time. And I'm pretty sure these people probably use their internet for more than just playing this one game online. Most online lobbies are full of kids and strange people, at least those that are on a mic.

Battlefield has some of the best single player campaigns for fps games there is. 

 

According to your profile you have only done battlefield 4, which I believe is one of the best. You didn't even do the campaign in battlefield 1. 

 

The only campaign that battlefield fell short in was probably hardline, but I still thought it wasn't too bad. Everything else I've done so far in that series is fantastic.

There is an easy answer to your question. They play it because they enjoy playing it. I personally played 2500 hours of BF3 on my main alone and enjoyed every second of it. So I can understand people playing this old game just because they like to fight against those veterans which jump weird around the map and drop some headshots while flying.

The battlefield community is so big because of what the franchises brings to the table, there just isn't any other games like the battlefield games.The big thing of the game people do is Military simulations, people will spend hours doing this. There are even entire  servers dedicated to this as well as recruiting severs. The games have tanks,planes,helicopters and boats each with their own skill to master. The games also have numerous guns and gadgets that are also well known in the real world. I'm a big fan of the franchises and  happily play the games well after the plat. Sometimes trophy hunters just plat games and move on without ever knowing how big and fun some games can be. You have to take a break  ounce in a while and not worry about the leader boards to just enjoy some of theses games.

I don't play exclusively on Playstation. I have completed the campaigns for Bad Company 1 and 2 as well as Battlefield 3. They're bland and forgettable and they don't even begin to compare to single player campaigns from other notable FPS games like Metro, Halo, Bioshock and CoD.

I hated BF3 and BF4's campaigns, but to each his own. I really like the Bad Company campaigns, and I kind of liked BF2 Modern Combat's.

I found the Bad Company characters to be very likeable. The Modern Warfare trilogy was like an over-the-top action movie. It had better spectacle, but not as good characters imo.

While I think Bad Company's campaigns are definitely a better attempt compared to the mainline games, I still find them extremely forgettable. I can't even remember a single moment or character from any of this franchise's single player campaigns. I believe if DICE decided to cut the single player campaign to the next Battlefield, there'd barely be an uproar compared to when Treyarch did it for Black Ops 4.

some people just like to shoot shit...

 

 

If I were them, I'd at least pick up a copy of Bad Company 2. If you love one game, why not try the sequel which shares many of its maps?

Bad Company 1 is memorable because it's a ripoff of Kelly's Heroes. I agree BC2 had a forgettable story. The Modern Warfare trilogy has more memorable moments.

You have these kind of people in every game, while I was grinding through the TLOU MP part there were some crazy people being level 999... and when I had a look at their profile, I realized that some of them have not earned a trophy since 2016, so basically all they were playing the last years is the mp of the last of us, I cannot understand it either, but neither do I want to judge anyone based on these pieces of information.

Everyone needs a hobby. Trophy hunting has forced me to master and explore things in games I otherwise wouldn't.

This... and rushing through games, skipping to the next part, if you got the trophy. Trophy hunting "forces" me to just play BF5 right now. And damn, it's hella fun. Don't forget to look left and right, even though, you're trophy hunting, guys.

This does surprise me. This game is like 10 years old. I remember getting it on my old PSN account (thanks PS for not allowing name changes!) and it being truly amazing at the time though. Ditto on online only players, never understood not playing the campaign but to each his own I guess!

Hey. Nothing wrong with that. That was me like 5 years ago before the whole trophy hunting. Played BFBC1 non stop for a year. Kept playing over and over until I was getting first place almost every match. Just wanted to be better than anyone. Then I stumbled onto trophies  and its never been the same. Now I feel ive played all kinds of games but feel like I’m average at best at all of them. Eh

EVERY game has people like that, literally. I don't play many games online, but every time I do, especially in an older game, it looks like this: a bunch of more-or-less-noobs/people-in-it-for-the-trophies and a few guys (or gals, who knows) who have clearly played this game A LOT, I mean hundreds if not thousands of hours. Some have 100% in the game, some mostly multiplayer trophies. A fresh example: had my PS3 hooked up today, so I went to get some of the multiplayer trophies in Medal of Honor. MP in this game is mediocre at best (and incredibly crappy in a certain mode, which is the most popular...), yet there were some people who clearly devoted an incredible amount of time to it. Some people just play it because it's fun for them for some reason. Then I look at myself, I play Tekken 7 online a lot and if trophies wouldn't exist, I wouldn't even touch story mode. And while T7 has a lot more depth than 99% of games and definitely more than some mediocre military shooter, I kinda understand why some people just play a game they like. It's simply fun for them. Just like T7 is fun for me, the one game that I've played for hundreds of hours after getting all the trophies. 

 

It's all relative, here we all think that people care about trophies, on PC forums people tend to think that everyone gets high on the fastest and most expensive hardware and audiophiles think that real sound starts with a $100k setup... the reality is that most people just buy a device and play games they like. Sometimes it's 15 games a week, 15 minutes per one, sometimes it's 5 games in 7 years without even touching single player campaigns.

very well said. I used to play PC and main line one game for a few years at a time back in the PS1 days. PlayStation games were just casual games:..totally different perspective now. Trophies had a lot to do with it
