The one thing that has bugged me about most FPS games are the magazines.

 

Let's say you have 90 rounds, the gun can shoot 30 before you need to reload.

You can fire one shot, reload, and the character inserts a completely new magazine and it takes off -1 from your ammo.

You can do this 90 times, putting 90 mags through your firearm. This is not realistic at all. I understand there has to be a tradeoff to keep the gameplay interesting, but I wish a developer would figure out a way to combat this and make it more realistic in this fashion.

 

My solution: if you fire off 1 round and re-load a completely new magazine, you lose all the other ammo from that other magazine, so -30, not -1. If you wish to re-fill a magazine, you should be able to find a spot to hideout and put the bullets in the magazine (1 bullet per second)

 

Ever played Americas Army? I played it years ago on the computer, not the console game they came out with a little while back. They had it set up for when you actually did that you actually wasted your bullets. Also had you have health instead of that regenerating stuff.  You actually had to take the sniper test to get the ability to use the sniper rifle in the game online, was along the lines of you using the m16 shooting at 40 targets had to get 36+ to get the ability to be a sniper. Pretty sweet game, also had to take a medic exam to be able to be a medic, and even had special op missions for you to use the special op weapons. Most realistic shooter I ever played, but since the Army had a close tie with it it actually makes sense that it was.(believe it was a simulator not sure its been years talking 7+ ) By far the most skilled fps I every played, if you hopped on and played anything like you do on cod or bf your gonna be dead within a minute. The rounds were one and done so thats why it is so much more of a strategical game.

@Wade:

Not 100% sure on this, but I believe in the new Battlefield 4 when a weapon gets reloaded, and any ammo remained in the magazine it gets lost for good.

I do like realism, but i'm not a fan of this feature and hope the devs remove it if it's in fact currently implemented in the game.

I'd blow through all my magazines in no time, especially with some of weapons that have a high rate of fire. I'm always reloading because you never know, lol.

Dont like how late ps4 is coming out. Believe it got pushed through the fcc almost a month ago was hoping for an October release. I think they pushed it back to around November for production purposes.

Just glad to have a release date.

 

My plan is to get the system along with four games, most likely Battlefield, Madden, FIFA, and NBA 2k14

All this means is I won't be playing BF4 until November 15th.

 

Was hoping for an earlier release date too.

YES

that game was intense...

I believe it was the armys training program (or combat simulator)

it was a combat simulator, not a FPS

 

I played it, coming from like Halo CE, and I got stomped on.. brutal difference, you had to do like 10 hours or so of training before you could play with other people... learn to handle weapons, gernades, everything, it was not a FUN experience, it was more training then a game.

 

I really didn't play it much, but I remember it...

Yea I was in a clan and all, it was so much more intense then any other shooter I ever played. I was pretty young when I played like back in 7th grade, so I wasnt the best since the game is one that rewards patience and tactics and well at 13 years old I didnt really have that lol. Had like a kdr of around 1.1 which was hellagood for me at least. It was a pretty hard game to beast in.

How did you know the games I am going to buy with it? lol

I agree that madden is not a great game, but it is still fun to sit around with your buddies and get some games of football in.

So what is everyone getting?  I am torn.  Maybe I should get a Genesis or Sony Saturn?  

You should get a 3DO or a Neo-Geo.

Pre-ordered PS4 bundle with BF4 at Target. Hope I don't regret it because PS3 disappointed me.

I cancelled my Xbox One order from Best Buy.
