Top 10 Best Battlefield Games

The Top Ten
1 Battlefield: Bad Company 2

This Battlefield has the most thought-out multiplayer of all the games. It might be simple in many aspects, but that's why it worked. Practically everything was balanced out in a "risk-reward" mechanic, vehicles felt powerful but still vulnerable, and teamwork always won the day. It had a fantastic selection of maps that all worked great with the main mode, Rush, and had a lot of care put into the sound design. In no other game can you plan around after recognizing that the guy screaming next door is an engineer or a recon. All of this combined made for an extremely fun experience.

2 Battlefield 3

The best first-person shooter of 2011 and the most realistic game of all time! If that doesn't deserve the top spot, then I don't know what does.

The campaign is really really good, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I really liked the storyline, and it was the greatest story in a Battlefield game.

The multiplayer is just absolutely amazing! There is a great variety of weapons, the maps are giant, and the games can last 10-20 minutes. The vehicles you can drive/fly are just awesome.

Best Battlefield game ever. Perhaps the best graphics so far in any game (up until 2012). This and Call of Duty 4 are my second-favorite games, the first being Black Ops and Uncharted 2/3. Don't listen to the guy below. He doesn't know anything, bragging about how Battlefield is better than Call of Duty. Which one is more played? Which one is more famous? Which one has split-screen multiplayer online and offline? The answer: Call of Duty.

But shut up! Let people enjoy what they want to enjoy. People that want to play Battlefield, let them play Battlefield. The people that prefer Call of Duty, let them prefer Call of Duty. Who cares about the graphics? It matters how much fun it is. My preference: Call of Duty, but I'm not going to brag about it. Battlefield and Call of Duty are both sick (awesome) and a ton of fun. For me, I hardly prefer Call of Duty, only so extremely slightly. BF3 > MW3, BO > BF3, BO > Call of Duty 4, BF3 = Call of Duty 4.

3 Battlefield 1

Best trailer ever. The weapons, cars, tanks, planes, and more are perfect. I hope that the story is good, but the multiplayer is more important, and I play it more than the story.

I am stunned. The campaign is brilliant, the multiplayer is outstanding, and the graphics are incredible. Infinite Warfare is going to have a very hard time comparing to this.

Despite the game having its flaws, it still promises us everything that we have been hoping for. Though not the best Battlefield game, it's definitely a promising release.

4 Battlefield 4

Honestly, this is not only my favorite Battlefield game but my favorite video game of all time! A great game, good story, beautiful and smooth multiplayer (it's all I personally care about, but the campaign was still pretty good), and unfortunately underrated. I like how Ghosts was more hyped up than this and had more players but was one of the worst video games ever spawned from the pits of hell itself compared to Battlefield 4. Same with Titanfall. Let's be realistic, people: Titanfall is Call of Duty with robots. BF4 is months older than Titanfall but still has better graphics, maps, weapons, everything!

5 Battlefield 2

Best Battlefield, and the second best is Bad Company 2. My opinion is that Battlefield 3 only won best Battlefield game because of its hype. Battlefield 2 didn't need Frostbite 2 and all the hype to be a great game. The teamwork is great, and all the different maps and vehicles offer a large array of tactical warfare. If you still want to have good times, or you are looking for a new shooter, Battlefield 2 and/or Bad Company 2 are the best choices.

The game was well-balanced. It is simple enough for people with less powerful hardware to play, but it was also really fun. And don't forget, the game's single-player mode was actually multiplayer with bots, not some storyline. I know you guys put a lot of work into this, but like my boyfriend always being better at multiplayer than Call of Duty, Call of Duty is always better than my boyfriend at single-player storylines. Therefore, even if you have poor internet, you can still have an experience nearly as fun as multiplayer.

Wait, did I mention that Battlefield 2 is also modder-friendly? Even someone with just a little experience in the field of modding can edit the game to suit what they like. And it's really easy to get more experience and knowledge in modding because the lines of code in Battlefield 2 are so simple. This leads to many, many mods and addons, like EoD, AIX, FH2, and PR. So even if you don't want to spend time modding, you can still experience Battlefield 2 in many different ways.

6 Battlefield: 1942

This is the best Battlefield game ever made and surely the best WW2 game ever made. I think many of you would agree that older games are better than newer games. They're just more fun to play, and they have all that is needed to provide the intense feeling of an actual war. New games are all about graphics and hype, and they DO NOT have as good stories as the older ones. So soldiers, thumbs up for the original Battlefield game! This is how it all started!

- Hilarious physics? Check!
- Great music? Check!
- Enjoyable maps? Check!
- Plain fun? CHECK!
It may not have "next-gen graphics." Its environments may not be fully destructible. But, who needs all that stuff when you have bazookas that send people flying across the map?!

7 Battlefield: Bad Company

Although not as well looking or patched, this was my first FPS shooter on the PS3, and boy, did I put a lot of hours into this game. Simply amazing: the choppers, artillery, and of course, those destructions at its time. Purely nostalgia, it's number one for me.

Great game. It was groundbreaking with its Frostbite engine. A great buy at only $6.99 at GameStop.

8 Battlefield: Vietnam

Probably one of EA's most overlooked games of all time. I don't remember any advertising for it, and I was really lucky that my brother purchased it by chance. If he hadn't, I would have never been able to experience this masterpiece. The landscape, structures, chosen battlegrounds, and radio chatter really draw you into the Vietnam War. It wasn't just a game. It was 'Nam, and it was intense.

Very little BS mechanics-wise and balanced how it should have been (US air superiority, Vietnamese special perks). And no one who played can forget flying through the skies in a Huey while blasting Surfin' Bird, Fortunate Son, or any of the other great tracks in this game. In fact, whenever I hear music that was featured in this game, I think of my experience in Vietnam. Er... I mean Battlefield Vietnam.

Great game!

9 Battlefield: Hardline

It's the best game I ever played. The story is very short but very good. I just play multiplayer. It isn't just like the other Battlefields. It is with cops and gangsters, and the places are very good.

Battlefield Hardline is a very fun game to play. It can get very tense in multiplayer. The story is pretty good but very short. Multiplayer is what makes this game worth the buy.

Pretty fun, I guess. The episodes are really really fun and the multiplayer is very good, hardly any hackers or glitch abusers.

10 Battlefield 2142

My 3rd Battlefield game ever (my first being Vietnam, and second being 1942), I played this game to death online back in 2006. Good times... good times. By the way, does anyone miss this game's multiplayer? This Battlefield game is the best futuristic game of all time. Infinite Moneygrab!

What other battlefield offered what 2142 did? Mechs, future weapons, high-tech equipment. The maps were the best of all too. They should have just built on this idea and not have gone back to old war or modern settings.

For its time, the graphics are fantastic. Like all Battlefield games, it requires teamwork and skill. Highly recommend trying this out for anyone that hasn't played Battlefield 2142.

The Contenders
11 Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam

This is a very unique experience that makes the original BFBC2 gameplay look slightly boring. And trust me, that is very hard to do.

Probably the only DLC I've ever seen that is actually 100% worth the money.

The only game in the series that makes Bad Company 2 look sort of dull.

12 Battlefield V

It's great. Not historically accurate though.

13 Battlefield 1943

So far, the only game to use Frostbite for the WW2 era, this game was, in my opinion, one of the best experiences you could have in a game. It's brutally simplistic gunplay (no RDS sights in WW2) made it much more authentic and accessible.

Also, nothing beats running around with a katana.

Great graphics, always fun, and a good game to play when you get bored. It's perfect for people who are always getting killed by the same guns over and over, as you don't unlock new guns.

Cheap, great graphics, and no unlocks. A great game to play without having to dedicate time to it.

14 Battlefield 3: Armored Kill
15 Battlefield 3: Close Quarters
16 Battlefield Play4free

Amazing game! And on top of it, it's free. I love it. It's just fantastic! Awesome and great game.

17 Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand
18 Battlefield 2: Modern Combat

This game started it all. The multiplayer hooked so many people into the FPS category!

The online mode in this game was way too much fun.

19 Battlefield Heroes

I have worked on most of these Battlefield games, and my all-time favorite, and the game that I am the most proud of, is Battlefield Heroes. I'm even in the trailer.

Awesome game. Loved it, and it's a beast game. Why is this not in the top 5?

The game was legendary. Don't understand? Play it now. You will see.

20 Battlefield 2: Armored Fury
21 Battlefield 2: Euro Force
22 Battlefield Online
23 Battlefield 3: Aftermath
24 Battlefield 2: Special Forces

Added a new twist to the Battlefield saga. Spent countless hours playing. The smoke grenade launcher was awesome.

25 Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike
