A guy said to me that the gameplay in Battlefield: Vietnam was superior to that of Bad Company 2. I was wondering what y'alls' opinions are about these two games.

By the way, does driving the vehicles (I've only played the 1942 demo) give any of you folks headaches? I suppose it could have been my imagination, but I seemed to get headaches after driving the vehicles or riding in the mounted turrets and read that the screen bobbing up and down can cause headaches. I play other games without headaches so it's not just a general "allergy" to video games, and I was wondering if you others knew what this was, and also: Would the better/different graphics of Bad Company 2 eliminate the headaches?

Hmmm, haven't played either of those but I've never been a big fan of historical shooters so I vote Bad Company 2. Overall though I'd say wait for Black Ops or go MW2

personally, Ive never been a fan of any of the battlefield series until bad company 2 game came out, now I play that almost exclusively and love it. Im hesitant about black ops, glad they brought back dedicated servers, but Im still miffed over what they pulled with mw2

I dunno, part of it may be im running it on a system that can handle it, previous battlefield games Ive played have never been on systems that were capable of handling it. The gameplay is definetly a bit better, better graphics, guns, etc.

Being a previous addict of the Battlefield 2 game (1,287 hours played), which used the same Refractor 2 engine as Vietnam, and a current player of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 I can say that BC2 is a LOT better. What plagued the Battlefield 2 game (and Vietnam) was hit detection.

Between the two games, you are better off with Bad Company 2 because it is new and there are a LOT of local servers for it. The older Battlefield games are active but not as many servers.

Could anyone compare/contrast the gameplay aspects?

Well, there's a pretty obvious one you seem to either not care about/are overlooking:

One takes place in 'Nam, and one doesn't!

That right there is a pretty big difference.
Plus, the Frostbite engine utilized by BF:BC2 is far more open than the engine used by BF:Vietnam.

Vietnam, if I recall correctly, wasn't as popular as '42, either.

Lol. True. Locale is important. xD

What do you mean by "open?" Like you can do more with it etc.?

Yeah, I think you're right about popularity. One guy theorized that it could be because WWII was a more famous war.

In Battlefield Vietnam if you shoot a wall with a tank, the wall is invincible and doesn't receive as much as a scratch. In Battlefield Bad Company 2, if you shoot that wall with a tank it is going to blow up along with anyone on the other side of it. Depending on the weapon you can shoot through things like fences, etc.

Bad Company 2 really is state of the art when it comes to gaming.

hehe true that. Nothing more annoying then having a tank blast through the wall your hiding behind right before you pull the trigger when sniping. extremely annoying, but I suppose realistic, to a point (Im not sure many tank commanders would justify shooting a house just to be rid of a sniper in real life, but then again, ive never actually been to war) On the other note, I can't say I havent used that method of getting rid of snipers myself.

It happens all the time actually. When you see enemy combatants going into a building, that building is generally blown up by tanks, air strikes, M203 grenade launchers or AT4 rocket launchers. It's safer than risking troops by sending them into an ambush.

Most snipers I kill just by walking up to them and knifing them. Most snipers are so concentrated on long distance targets that they don't pay attention.
