When will developers realize that rewards should not be the incentive for playing a video game. I've been involved with the SOCOM series since it was young, and I played becuase I wanted to. There was no trophies, no unlocks, and no reward. The community is what should make video games fun, and you should only be playing because you like the game, and you like to have a good time with your friends.

I'm sorry, but this "Games are work" mentality that goes into developing a game isn't for me. I'm looking forward to Battlefield 3 to play the game rather than cram for rewards.

Cyanide It's just one feature, and one you can ignore. Added a note for you at the end.

Oh, no. Don't get me wrong. I love Battlefield. I think it's awesome, and I have nothing against the idea. I just hate the collective mentality that developers have going into making multiplayer games nowadays. It's kind of annoying that devs group everyone in as a bunch of 5 year-old kids who need to be satisfied by shiny rewards and stuff, chautemoc

I wish people would stop caring about their e-peens and keep stuff simple. I loved the way BC2 was set up, because once you unlocked everything, you could get to level 50 and beyond while getting platinum stars.

Fair enough, but I personally enjoy the rewards greatly. Also the medals, ribbons, and ranks are things you'd earn in the military so it helps to immerse people a bit more. There are certain medals and/or ribbons in the military which are unobtainable, so I will probably look at some of these in the same light. LMAO

I understand. I'm not obsessed with it, mostly it's just nice at the end of a round to be recognized for high skill and effort.

Thwe thing is, if these are as they should be, it will help everyone a lot more.

If these medals are things that you should be doing to be a good teammate anyway, then its great. Think about it.
In COD everything really is about you. You get your own kills, to raise your own score, and get your own killstreaks. For you.
Whilst Battlefield its about Everyone, you have to help the teams tanks, get that air support to help you push forward, and so on. For everyone.

So by making people want to help the team more, its actually a much better idea and will end up with a lot more people helping their team than they could be.

^Yeah, that. It worked great in BC2, and I expect it to work even better in BF3.

None of this will matter if they don't fix hit registration
Needing to line up a headshot to kill someone with a sniper rifle, only to have the bullet absorbed into them is game breaking.

I hope you aren't one of those people that fire directly at someone over 100m away while they are moving and expect it to hit them.

No, but when I need to compensate for bullet drop and damage depreciation shooting from across the map it's infuriating to see blood spray out of their head and not even get a hit marker.

It's what keeps people in the game. I got tired of Modern Warfare 2 and find a little boring after going to 10th Prestige 70. Not seeing any changes in the game can totally bore you.

Where i do agree with the sentiment that games shouldnt be work and you should play for the fun of the game. Partially. I do enjoy a challenge however, and not being able to see how well im doing doesnt really add incentive to continue playing there game. If you played sports you would want that same incentive to do better, to know there is a higher level to achieve a rank that you know you earned through practice and commitment.
I do enjoy progression, and being in the military i enjoy the idea of rank and structure. And to see that displayed in ribbons or awards is incentive. Not that i need incentives to play a game, its those incentives that keep me playing the game.
Its those games that have reward and ranking structure that i continue to play
