I was into BF:1942 on my brother's PC - was gobsmacked. Got the Desert Combat Mod and spent most of my time in the Apache, didn't play online much until many years later in PR for BF2. Tooled around Hardcore Clan server(s) and eventually quit PvP wargaming for stress and too much boiled blood.  Found VG, love PR COOP, and BMS, and the rest is history.

It's 2004, my PC came with BF:1942 installed and I'm spending half an hour mashing the arrow keys, wondering why I can't move 😂 Desert Combat was a real gem for it's time though, I remember playing the s**t out of it.

I remember spending an unhealthy amount of hours on BF 1942 demo because it was so much fun playing on Guadalcanal, flying zeros and doing bomb runs on tanks. Then BF2 demo came out and I spent so much time playing as a commander and raining artillery on enemy spawn when I spawn trapped them...... I should've bought those games back then, given how much I've spent playing demos, but I was young and poor so it wasn't really an option for me at the time.

When the BF3 trailer finally dropped, I immediately pre-ordered the game (which is the only time I've ever pre-ordered in my life) and played unhealthy amount of hours to the point where people I was playing against started messaging me on Xbox live with insults like "Do u even have life bro."

(As you can see, I did indeed have no life back then lol)

 

When BF4 came out, I was rather disappointed with the direction they were going while playing Beta, so I didn't end up buying the game and started focusing on BF2 mods. Forgotten Hope 2, AIX 2, and Eve of Destruction 2 were my favorite mods until I found about the CO-OP aspects of PR... and the rest is history.

While the series as a whole is on a nosedive thanks to DICE & EA literally killing the franchise, Battlefield will always hold a special place in my heart thanks to countless hours of fun that it gave to me. Hopefully I'll be able to go back to the old days of getting excited over the trailers and pre-ordering the game again, but I doubt that magical excitement of a new BF game is going to come back to me.
