Battlefield 3 represents both the most fun I've ever had with online multiplayer and the most success I've ever had at online multiplayer. And for someone whose main issue with multiplayer boils down to "I suck at it too much to enjoy myself," being successful is a big deal.
I'd like to think that Battlefield 4
offers the same experience. At the very least, the new Frostbite engine, that the following trailer details, will make sure Battlefield 4
LOOKS awesome. Heck, even if it doesn't look that good, it's got boat combat. I assume that everything's better with boat combat.
You can watch the video and judge for yourself.
