All this talk about BFII for $15. I'm tempted, but I've hardly touched the first game. I feel like by the time I've got my fill of I, II will be even cheaper.
I enjoyed 1 a lot despite its faults, and ended up putting 100 - 200 hours into it. The biggest complaint was the amount of content for the price (which is moot now it's now incredibly cheap and the season pass was free). It also received a lot of Quality of Life updates after the backlash which made a significant difference for the better.
I've only played the SP for BF2 when I rented it as I wasn't keen on supporting EA, but caved once they revamped microtransactions and unlocks when the Deluxe edition was $20 at GS. I doubt the MP is significantly worse than BF1's.
I'd offer to play with you guys but.. I got it for PS4.
