A trustworthy series with successful ventures
Battlefield has always been a dependable series for intense first-person shooters.
However, the fourth installment received high praise. It came out in 2013 and has a better multi-player experience than a single-player one.
What makes the first-person shooting special is the customization of weapons the game encourages. Players can shoot comfortably in varied environments, including while they are swimming.
