Battlefield 3 Won't Be "Dumbed Down" For Mass Appeal

"Gamers are smart people." This is why games don't need to be "dumbed down."

At least, that's what DICE executive producer Robbie Bach told OXM in a recent Q&A about Battlefield 3. Consumers have blamed many a developer for dumbing down various franchises to reach a wider audience, but Bach says this is unnecessary for their new title:

"We do not think we have to dumb Battlefield down in any way to let more players enjoy it. Gamers are smart people. Our goal is always to build a better Battlefield game by keeping what makes Battlefield great: huge and tight battles, vehicles and infantry, destruction, the possibility to use different play styles and everything else.

Battlefield 3 will definitely be the best and biggest Battlefield game we've ever built."

Bach has gone on record by saying they're aiming for the stars with the graphics in Battlefield 3; they've overhauled EA's "ANT" animation system to fit into DICE's new Frostbite 2 engine, and thus far, early footage has proven impressive. This "no dumbing down" bit is also intriguing...

Typically - and this isn't a knock against shooters - the FPS genre doesn't exactly cater to the intellectual gamer; shooters can be a ton of fun and boast good stories, but few can be considered a "thinking man's game." It's the dumbing down of RPGs that give gamers fits this generation...maybe companies like Square-Enix can listen to Bach and his "gamers are smart people" comment.

I agree that games shouldn't be dumbed down, but I can't say that FPS-only players seem all that smart. Ya know what I've found in my own little anecdotal research? They won't even play a game unless the controls are the same as CoD. *eyeroll*

ha! that is so true. when i mention kz3 to my friends i get a lot of eye rolls. some claim it sucks even though i'm sure they never tried it. the most discouraging response is when they say huh what's kz3. my answer is the best online fps i've ever played, and it's ps3 exclusive. kz3 makes cod look ancient.

So, considering that PS3 exclusives like Resistance 3, Socom 4 and MAG for example all have had more players online, how am I supposed to take this comment?

Does this mean that BF3 on the PS3 will more then 24 players?

Well, considering this comment has nothing to do with how many players the online mode will hold, you obviously took it way out into left field. Doesn't bode well for their 'gamers are smart people' view on things.

Yes, but you do realize that neither of those have the graphics or scale of BF3 right?
Only reason MAG can have 256 players is it has crappy graphics, small maps and no jets and such like BF3 will have.

To be perfectly honest I think you are being silly now Kir. It's two different systems, different platforms. If you can't afford one of the platforms then forget that platform. Did you get annoyed if a psp game had a better looking version on the ps2?

If you do not want anyone else in the world to experience a better version than the one you are playing, for whatever reason, then you are pretty much stuck on only playing exclusives, and then, in my humble opinion, you are missing out on a *lot*.

So you would deny yourself a good game, just because the graphic's aren't exactly up to PC code?

I could see it if it looks as bad as the Wii game "Marine 5: Modern Urban Combat's horrible Pre-Dreamcast dated looking graphics did.

But for Battlefield??????????

Socom 4 has nothing to do with Socom , Cover system? No pistols? No lobbies? No party system? Unable to play with friends?

SOCOM 4 is still SOCOM, it's just different than the other entries. God forbid the developers try something new with the series but you get people like you who keep others from trying something different.

They also could add new modes with complete old school stuff from SOCOM 2 with new DLC for it.

It's still fun to play I tried the Beta out when my bro was playing it, but it will never compare to the old entries of SOCOM. Confrontation also wasn't my favorite but I played it once in awhile when I had it.

It's not going to take long, well considering the downtime of PSN it could take a while.

If you read up on things you would know that Zipper is working on the Party system they want to do it right and not rush it and screw something up.

You can get in the same game, but you might not appear on the same team.

But rest assured when it releases i will gladly tell you how i was able to join.

I do, but I don't know if we can do something about it. But i like to believe all of us can. All we can do is try to get the developers attention to fix things in SOCOM 4, to me it resembles a bit of CoD with the Air-strike mind you it wasn't usable in the older entries like you can use it in SOCOM 4, I'm just viewing it at a different angle. I do agree with you on the Pistols and such. Secondaries should always be a Pistol in SOCOM.

I'm not trying to make fun of you or anything I am just trying to show you a different perspective on it, maybe they can change it? We don't know until we try.

I don't like to argue with people that's not how i am. But I am passionate about SOCOM and other games, I'm just trying to hope for the best of it. I'm sure you can understand where I am coming from on this. I'm a veteran of SOCOM just like you are, but i like to keep an open mind about things especially when it comes to my favorite game series.

SOCOM 1, and 2 will always be in my heart of my favorite game it was amazing back then when i first played it, there was something special about it.

Well, I do hope something happens to make them go back to their roots of SOCOM 1, and 2.

I'm just hoping for the best even if it's far fetched, If they can fix things. And if they listened to some of the MAG users I hope they can listen to the community of SOCOM to make it a better game even though I myself wouldn't know how to go about doing that because I'm not a developer.

I hope the window is open so the crowd is loud enough so they hear it.

I had a hard time trying to pilot the helicopters effectively in Battlefield Bad Company 2, if you could make your own lobby and train for awhile in piloting it, I don't think I would of had any problems using it online. And the fact that people steal it all the time, and destroy the helicopter that you are piloting in because they didn't get in first.

The only thing i didn't like for the private match is you need I believe an amount of 8 people to start a private match.

And the reason why it's so hard to pilot is because everyone hogs the helicopter and you don't get much air time. If that didn't happen I'm sure I would be a good pilot. I mostly play on the ground but I'm interested in air combat.

I know what you mean, Ive been playing BF since 1942(see what I did there lol!) and once the helicopters got introduced in BF2 I had such a hard time trying to pilot them I eventually quit. I wish I hadn't though I could be a really good pilot by now, I just stick with land vehicles.

I hear you man it's pretty tough especially if you can't get into the helicopter without being scolded by players, and not being able to train in private to get better.

But when I'm able to play BF2 when PSN gets up I'm going to try it out and start training, I don't have a PS3 right now but I'm using my brothers when he lets me use his.

One thing I do like about playing BF on the PC is the amount of assistance I get when I don't know what I am doing. My teammates will help me instead of insult me if I am making one too many mistakes. One thing that sucks about playing BF:BC2 on my PS3 or 360 is that some players aren't that nice, instead of encouraging me to try to train with helicopters they will bash me until I get nor will they let me back in to give it another go.

I'm sure Battlefield 3 will be a great game but I'm more excited about Resistance 3. I won't have the time to play both so I choose R3.

I have a question for the community. Are there any other gaming sites that aren't IGNorant and show obvious bias against the PS3? I like to check other sites but it's getting ridiculous with the amount of Sony directed hate.

the sixthaxis is a decent site. they cover all the systems. they cover the ps3 extensively, but i have noticed they will take shots at sony. they are usually pretty fair, though. it's a uk site.

as for these US sites like ign, the 360 is a lot more popular here, and i think they might be somewhat protective of the 360 becuase of that. not to mention all the money ms throws around. it should not influence them, but it might. it's also possible there are just more 360 fans over there.

I think he was talking about the 'noob playing cod' mindset of gaming. those gamers that go CODs the best, when its so basic, its pick up a gun, then pick up a slightly more powerful gun, and use it.
or cheat by abusing the perks really.
But to me thats good news, i could use a new shooting fix, not right now, too busy with exams, but later, and battlefield 3 looks sick. like seriously, the enviromental damage thing, after playing games which lack that, it makes such a difference!

Indeed, it's too easy playing CoD, but in Battlefield Bad Company 2 I had much more challenge because people actually was thinking on how to get you even if the odds are in your favor.

Which is pretty exciting if you ask me. And thank god there is no drop shot in Battlefield.

I've played 80-odd hours of BC2, and while it was smarter than CoD, that's hardly smart. I'd say that MAG was the 'smartest' FPS I've played (in that, to be effective you really needed to think tactically about your class, your map, your teammates, all that stuff), and SOCOM:Confrontation the smartest shooter (and I suspect SOCOM 4 classic will be right up there as well).

BC2/BF is fun and all (and it is, I really enjoy these games), but they've got a long way to go before they enter tactical-shooter land (which is where the smarter play is).

I think he means huge maps and intense (tight being a slang synonym for intense, obviously) battles. So in that context, they go together just fine.

Btw, I always enjoy how you pick apart the littlest things that devs of FPS's say about their games, and somehow make a huge deal out of it. Don't change man, don't change.

Once again DICE is proving to me that they are an incredibly competent dev that gets their consumers. This just reinforces my belief that this and R3 are the only shooters worth getting in the 2nd half of this year.

I still have one question for DICE though: why only 24 players for consoles?
