It's been a while since BF1942 and since then we have had BF:Nam, BF:2142, BF2, BFBC1/2. BFBC1/2 was an attempt at innovation whereas BF:2142 was a total copout. BF:Nam was a 64-player shooter with vehicles and fricken jungles!! That had never been done before. When BF1942 came out I bought a computer just to play it. My friends and I have been talking about a remake of BF1942 for years. It desperately needs 128 player maps with aircraft carriers, destroyers, subs, more guns/weapons and a graphical overhaul. Sure it's a little tried and true, but there really isn't anything quite like the Battlefield games. The command and control system in BF2 was amazing when it came out (and it still amazes me today).
CoD:Black Ops is by a different dev than MW2 and they're focusing on realism, supporting modding and creating a community. I'd wait on making a final judgment on this one.
