  • USENET quote

    This is a response to someone asking about a good WWII game. I found it very amusing. Probably because my reaction was similar to his...

    BF42 .. it is truly amazing. The best way I know how
    to describe this to you is the first time I ever saw Battlefield 1942. It
    was on this map called "Midway". I spawn in .. I didn't know what to expect
    .. at all. I mean, I didn't read the press releases, I didn't read previews.
    I didn't know nothin' about nothin'. So, this is my very first impression ..
    ever. When I spawned in .. there were these HUGE battleships .. cruisers
    maybe .. firing back and forth at each other out in the sea .. something was
    going on out there .. I stood there and watched it for a minute or so
    thinking "DAMN . .. that's some pretty intense naval warfare going on
    there." Then this submarine surfaces .. HOLY smokes, wow ... and then I see
    .. these tiny dots off in the distance going up in the air. What the hell is
    that? I look closer, they are airplanes flying off an aircraft carrier and
    now, they are are buzzing around these ships like flies. UNBELIEVABLE
    simulation of Pacific warfare in WWII. Jhees-o-man. Then, I hear a rumble. I
    look around and across this bridge here comes a damn tank! Well, what's the
    button for dig a damn hole and hide in it! He doesn't notice me. Whizzes
    past turns and fires at a truck looking thing (APC) with a machine gun on
    it, there's a bunch of guys there firing bazookas at the guy leaving smoke
    trails. Then .. all of the sudden .. ZZZZZZZZZRRRRRrrrr .. here comes this
    plane out of the sky .. another one following it just firing like a madman
    .. then *BOOM* *BOOM**BOOM* .. what the hell is that .. it's anti-aircraft
    firing .. the one pilot does a barrel roll and flies off in to the sky with
    the other plane in hot pursuit. Great googily moogily. Well, this tank ain't
    wantin' no part of the Bazooka Boys so he turns and he heads right for me.
    'Bout that time, ANOTHER plane comes dartin' out of the sky hell bent for
    election.. and KABLAM .. dive bombed and the carcass of the tank FLEW OVER
    MY HEAD .. Holy ****, man. That was UNBELIEVABLE. Finally, some type of boat
    lands and there's three guys in it, they are firing machine guns like crazy
    so two other guys come over there and they get in some wicked squad battle
    type thing. They end up killing those guys and taking off in a jeep.

    At that point, I just turned my machine off.

    I just turned it off.

    I just sat there.

    I didn't know what to make of the thing I just saw because ... all of those
    things were ACTUAL PEOPLE doing ACTUAL THINGS on a simulated battlefield.

    I been to three county fairs and a buzzard f#$k and I ain't never seen
    nothin' like that first time I saw Battlefield 1942 in full blown MAYHEM.

    That was it. I pretty much don't play any other games now.

    That's Battlefield 1942.

    Haha! That was great! :D

    3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

      I may be old but I can still pull the trigger. Because I can't run. That makes me dangerous. :icon_lol:

          That's because you didn't hit the "dig a damn hole and hide in it" button. :icon7:

          Great find Cingular.

          Dang, I've gotta get back ingame some more. I've been amiss too much lately.
