BF4 is quickly becoming my favorite Battlefield game to date. I'm 70 hours in, and I'm only loving it more and more. Pretty much the opposite reaction I had to BF3, which I grew sour on over the course of my 600+ hours playing it. For the most parts, I hated its guts.
There are a few minor aspects that aren't matching my preference, like I'd prefer less *contrasty* graphics, and I'd much prefer stationary AA and small arms damage on aircraft over lock-on rocket launchers, but even these things have been tweaked so that they jell much better for me - like giving me a small HUD indicator, where-from enemies try to lock-on from, making it more of an even-footing fight, rather than engineers with AA-launchers feeling like spoil-sports. Oh - I still totally hate 2D-Auto/Audio-Spotting (showing up on the minimap after firing a gun), but the game's way too frantic and awesome to care about that complaint most of the time.
Hell - I'm playing the PS3 version, very likely the weakest version of the game overall, and it's still blowing all my time I had with BF3 on PC out of the water. The highs are so much flippin' higher, the lows are barely existent. Can't wait to do it all on PS4, in semi-1080p with 60 FPS, do some 64 player Conquest for a change, rather than Rush. It's going to be even better.
Talk about highs. Like yesterday, I was frustrated with a pussyfoot team not attacking forcefully on the first tier of Paracel Storm Rush, so I had to get creative. Jumped into the Blackhawk, beelined it to the tailend of the aircraft carrier wreck, swiftly landed it right behind that popular sniper perch mid deck, cleared the front of the carrier of camping vermin with the minigun, jumped out of the now burning and soon to explode chopper, mowed down like ten dudes respawning in my back with my newly acquired M16A4 with nothing but ironsights with its trademark burst-fire, now using the other opposite sniper perch as vantage point onto their spawn, giving my team all the time they needed to arm the M-COMs. I was flying high as a kite. If only I had done that on a PS4 already, with that nifty Share-button.

Where'd you rank BF4?
