Low Spec, maybe Low Price Battlefield. Is there any demand ?

Yeah, I know I run a potato. Cant even play Bad Company 2 and I need to play CSGO in 1024*576 resolution with lowest settings. But I hate playing CS. It has a high skill-floor and a low skill-ceiling.

I am only capable to play BF on Console, but right now I only have my shit-tier laptop at hand.

Anytime I get the opportunity to play a quick game with room mates, we need to decide on the lowest common census. Either CS 1.6 or Left4Dead2 right now. But I prefer the gameplay of BF a lot more. At least I want to play the infantry like that.

I know BF has this reputation for graphics, but I think there is an unfulfilled demand for modern gameplay capable to run on potatos.

What do you guys think ? Is there a demand for that or am I the only peasant here ?

look at battlefield play4free.
that didn't go very well.

anyway the frostbite engine when used by Dice is a really well-optimized engine, so even though potatoes can't run battlefield games, lower performing pcs still can run it decently, in fact, i'd say bf4 actually runs better than bc2 in some cases.

I know about battlefield play4free... Its gameplay was flawed, that's why it failed.

That's why I wrote about _MODERN_ gameplay

iirc it also had technical issues, though yes, the gameplay was the main reason.

anyway, the problem is not that there isn't request... in fact, there actually is a lot for it, the problem is that such a request it's fulfilled quite easily due to the industry standard, for you a gtx220 might be a potato, for someone even a gtx660 is already a potato, that's the real problem here.

Isn't a 660 perfectly capable of running Battlefront and BF1 on low/mid settings if the rest of the hardware is halfway decent?
Zormau - Battlelog / Battlefield 4

Memorable quotes not taken yet:


Of course, this ignores the non-constant cross-sectional first moment of area across the chest as well as non-constant material properties of the boob; it would be difficult to perform a more detailed analysis (as in, I'd have to have a shape function AND I'd need to derive a function for elastic modulus as a function of lateral breast coordinate) but whatever. It's 2am and I'm lazy.


I always believed science should be very hands on experience.

You should also answer this question I had posed in that thread: Would you be willing to pay your surgeon more if he was going to use a chainsaw for the opening incision of surgery? Clearly using a chainsaw isn't truly suited for surgery but that doesn't really matter. If he's "skilled" enough to be able to use the wrong tools of the trade, he should be rewarded for that skill right?

Well, I have GT230m ... Just as an example why CS is still the first goto when it comes to lowest common consensus.

Although the "rig" is about 8 years old, I want to play games, but I cant.

From a publisher perspective it surprises me even more, because the lower the minimum requirements, the larger the potential customer base.

I know PC elitists want games to develop even further and see Consoles as a burden, while at the same time they ignore a large potential market in their own sphere.

The market for this exists, and is already heavily supported, to the point that most games released in that format fail in a few months due to heavy competition.

If you want to play on a potato you're looking at MMOs.

If you want modern Player vs Player combat like battlefield on an MMO, you're looking at GuildWars2.

alternatively there's always Unreal Tournament, especially the older ones like UT3 or UT2004.

I would have recommended that first, but planetside is extremely pay-2-win these days, you're completely and painfully out-geared without either a thousand hours ingame or spending IRL money.

If you're interested, this is GW2 footage from the Symthic group, playing the equivalent to BF Conquest. 1st vid is small-scale, second is mid-scale third is massive.







If you're specifically after an FPS, UT is probably the better bet?
