THE BUZZ: Patrick Bach, Executive Producer at DICE, has revealed that he is ashamed to start up Battlefield Bad Company 2, as he only sees faults in the game.

“I don’t know why, but I always feel ashamed about the games I’m involved in making,” he said in a recent interview. “I can’t even bring myself to start up Battlefield Bad Company 2, our last game, because I feel so ashamed. I know it is a great product but still I only see the things we could have done better.”

He also discussed how the team is trying to avoid this problem in Battlefield 3:

“We are focusing on cutting the bad stuff rather than adding and changing things. Instead of adding ideas, we are removing problems, and that is what our testers are helping us with. We have deleted portions of maps, we have skipped passages in the single player campaign. Everything that doesn’t meet our standards we chop out.”

EGM’s TAKE: Battlefield  Bad Company 2 was a solid game, but its good to see that Bach and DICE aren’t just resting on their laurels.
