My question to everyone is: Why do you want to play SW: Battlefront. Now please try searching for answers other than "The graphics look really cool" or "I'm a huge Star Wars fan" etc. While these are, in many cases, parts of why we want to play, I'm looking for answers from deeper within.

I want to play Battlefront because it's a new beginning. I've helped pioneer many games including(but not limited to) Age of Empires II, JK2, Medieval Total War, Runescape and Command and Conquer Renegade. Now, all but one of those(JK2) are still very popular to this day. Out of all these games there is one thing I feel with them all, satisfaction of being far ahead by doing something that can be accomplished in a day 1 year later. I also like sharing the stories of when the game was young with people who've not been around as long as me. But out of all the reasons in the world, I want to play Battlefront because I've never been the best. I know, this is extremely egotistical, but it has always been my one desire to be #1, the very best, even for just a few minutes. Everytime I start in a brand new game I try to become the best. But these games never have what I'm looking for to continue playing. Sure some are great for the first month or two, but then die out quickly.

Now why do I think Battlefront will be different? Because I've never had such a great feeling about a game not even released yet. I truley think that Battlefront will be the Age of Empires of our time. So I now open up the floor to any of your reasons as to whats driving you to play Battlefront, or better yet, wait months in advance for the game to come out.

You've helped pioneer games? That's going to need some explanation. Unless you actually worked on the game, you can hardly be considered a 'pioneering' force. Heh, at least I got a chuckle out of that.

I'll be playing BF because it's a combination of BF:42 (one of my favorite games) and Star Wars (of which I've been a long-time fan and hobbiest of).

I really don't know what other answers you could be looking for other than 'it looks like it'll be fun' or 'I'm a Star Wars fan'...

When I say pioneering I mean being with it before the game actually starts and then being one of the first to play.

I'm a huge Star Wars fan, also, the graphics look cool.

Especially because I'm a huge Star Wars fan though

I don't have any 'noble' reasons for wanting to play the game. :p

However, I will say that it looks like great fun. I enjoy playing games like Enemy Territory, especially with large teams on either side, and you can get a good sense of being on the battlefield trying to achieve an objective. The timer counting down helps to lend a sense of urgency to the combat. Mainly, though, it's just a great fun blast.

That's what I'll be looking forward to with SWBF. I won't even attempt to become the 'number one player', because I know there are some excellent MP gamers out there with more skill in their little finger than I'll ever hope to achieve. Besides, my reflexes aren't quite what they used to be.

No, for me it will be having fun taking part in the epic battles of the Star Wars universe, and I'll be happy enough with that.,

Of course I like to play the game because I love star wars, but everyone in this forum does, so it's useless to say that.

I've never followed the production of a game from so early on, and this game looks already perfect. bf1942 was really nice, but the vehicles in swbf will be much more fun, because they don't have to be realistc, and because they are so different from eachother. In bf1942 al factions have some tanks and some airplanes, but in sw1942 vehicles from different factions are totally different.

And all the think that were good about bf1942 are also to be found in battlefront (teamply, different classes).

And star wars has never been looked at from the perspective of a normal soldier (not in the games, not in the movies), so this will probably be totally new!

Why do I want to play Star Wars battlefront? I really really like star wars, I like shooting stuff, its something to do, its good for role playing, it'll build my bad social skills (maybe), it'll build comraderie, It'll rarely get boring. I can never 'beat' it. cause I'll always have more players to kil.

I can't say that I'm that dedicated, but...

I got a Nintendo GameCube just for Rogue Leader. Now I have all of the Star Wars GameCube games.

Have you guys played Goldeneye for N64, that games rocks for multiplayer. I can play that all day everyday. oo-yeah. I'm not only playing star wars games, but if I see a star wars game, I automatically save up for it, with my only research being the back of the box. with other games, I do alot of research online and all.

I am more anxious for GUngan hunting. If I could be in a closed room with just me and Jar Jar, I would be so happy.

Ewoks are cool.

Save the Ewoks!

Good god - then I must have "pioneered" about 100 games in the last 20 years or so...bully for me! :cool: :p

Anyway, in answer to your question my primary reasons for playing the game are:

1. Crush Rebel Scum w. Imperial March in background, as noted above.
2. Kill Ewoks and Gungans
3. Run over Yoda or any version of baby Vader that turns up in the game with my Landspeeder/AT-AT/Death Star etc
