Battlefield Hardline. It really is a cool idea I think. Cops and Robbers is a game as old as time and I can't believe it's taken so long for a first person shooter to really harness that instinct in our culture. I think it looks like a lot of fun.
But I guess it is a little familiar... some of Battlefield Hardline's elements do exist in other games! Look above for an alternate guess on how EA came up with the core concept for the game!
Jokes aside — that's just the nature of things. So many interesting ideas come from the merging of two completely distinct things. I'm actually looking forward to Battlefield's new direction.
