Pretty well made video about the history of the Battlefield series by Gamerspawn.
Some interesting facts I've learnt:
- Battlefield 1942 actually had a predecessor called "Codename: Eagle"
- Even Battlefield 1942 was buggy on release (like it successors it seems!)
- Trauma Studios that developed the BF1942 mod Desert Combat and Battlefield 2 were bought for a paltry $500,000...
- ...and were dissolved shortly before Battlefield 2's release.
- I miss Commander mode
- 10 million copies of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have been sold making it the best-selling game in the Battlefield franchise to date.
