Blackadder Goes Forth was a fantastic series.

Battlefield 1 has turned a lot of heads. Its announcement video is the most liked trailer on YouTube. Hell, even I’M interested in it.
Electronic Arts executives, however, didn’t want it to happen, which is sadly true of a lot of executives in this industry. People who know nothing, yet are paid to control everything.
They’re idiots, and we’ll never know what potential future successes they killed in the womb.
After a tepid marketing campaign and a lot of cynicism from the audience, Battlefield Hardline finally slogged it to the finishing line and released this week. The critics’ response has been lukewarm to say the least, to the point where I’ve been one of the more positive reviewers on the block. Most of the big guns think it’s “okay” at the very best – a decent enough, but dated and tone-deaf shooter.
What do The People think of it, though? Well, we have a controversial installment in a huge big budget franchise, a new developer on an established IP, Electronic Arts as the publisher… oh my, this is mama’s classic recipe for Shitstorm Soup!
You guessed it – Battlefield Hardline has been Metabombed by user reviews, as gamers take to everybody’s favorite pissing contest stadium and give EA a piece of their angry, angry minds.
