Battlefield 5 is a mockery of WW2. There is diversity for the sake of it, bombastic action to make it look exciting at the cost of immersion. They might as well call it an alternate reality WW2, that would be tenable. The prosthetic hands of the woman was laughably bad, why is DICE doing this? I've played since Battlefield 3 but this is putting me away from the game.
There were women soldiers in WW2 but they were mostly Russian and by far the biggest proportion of soldiers were men. To have a sizable portion of the squad as women and DICE's comments regarding the game show that its being shoehorned in the game to make a social statement. I don't want a social statement in a game about WW2, atleast not one based on current society. Its a WW2 game, it should depict WW2 scenarios and people. Men were dying on the battlefields forced to live in difficult surroundings and die from a variety of dangers. This is just dishonorable to them.
I'm in no way against women in games. Horizon: Zero Dawn and Rise of the Tomb Raider are some of my favourite games this gen. There is a place for men and women but you can't put them in everywhere for muh diversity.
This makes a decision easier. It really does.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was always a priority. I still thought I'll get Battlefield 5 next year when I'm done with it. That was before the reveal as I have no intention of getting Battlefield 5 at all. I'm sure the gameplay will be good but in a market saturated with shooters with good gameplay that's the base a game has to build for me to consider it. WW2 could have been that immersion factor that shooters lack but DICE doesn't want it to be so. They want diversity.Last edited by GOWTLOZ - on 30 May 2018
