Battlefield 2042, the next entry in DICE’s series of big, noisy multiplayer shooters, is set in a grim vision of the future where climate change has irreparably ravaged the planet and everyone is divided, angry, and depressed. So basically like the world today, but with more robot dogs. The series didn’t always take itself so seriously, though.

Back in the spring of 2010, EA’s flagship studio launched Bad Company 2, a delightfully silly, self-aware shake-up of the series’ established formula that not only had an infectious sense of fun, but was a killer FPS in its own right. Some honestly don’t think there’s been a better Battlefield since.
