If you're making a modern military fps aren't you always going to be hamstrung by the fact that the campaign twists and tricks, as well as potential antagonists, are as worn out as the adult channel button on hotel tv remotes?
I still like the sound of the single player campaign in BF4, but is it maybe time for everyone to accept that the stories are always going to suffer by comparison to the vignettes created by players in multi-player sessions?
I'm just thinking out loud, but I'd be interested to hear what you think could realistically save the single-player campaigns of the future?
I liked Spec Ops: The Line and its stab at differentiating itself in its story, but short of mining War and Peace, it doesn't seem like fundamental changes are going to happen soon.

At the moment Battlefield probably hasn't even been mentioned as a concern by Activision execs. CoD is the most well known franchise and the majority of gamers buy it - casual gamers, that is. They will continue to do so. If they buy an Xbox One, they will go into a game store and they'll look around for a game and the first one they'll notice is CoD, because they are familiar with it and know they like it.
Of course, we may see major switch ups with next gen, but I'm not so sure. I think new IPs will come up, like Watch_Dogs, but the old classics will still be around. If you look at the best selling Xbox games there is Halo, GTA, Fable and it is the same for 360 with the edition of CoD and Gears. The originals are still with us, but others have come up to compete with them. The same will happen next gen.

If you enjoyed the demo for Spec Ops buy the full game as the demo was far and away the weakest part of the package. Spec Ops is IMO one of the most criminally under rated games to hit the 360. It suffered bay from comparisons to CoD and BF when in fact it's real competition should have been Bioshock. It's a game about plot rather that K/D ratios and is the only anti war shooter you are likely to find. I will continue to champion it as one of my favourite games ever, and I'll still be talking about it long after CoD has died.
