There's a good Forum post over on Battlelog. Honestly someone who can write/spell and is making sense... but the "Old Stick In The Muds" at Battlelog are just throwing out the "Same old" comments.... "Anybody who wants the dinozz is a fag!"
The "Dinos Are Stupid in BF4!!" argument... doesn't hold water for me. Take "ZOMBIES"... that have been played to death in many PS3 games... including COD Black Ops, ARMA2, Red Dead Redemption and many others. In truth... the Zombie modes have raked in the profits in dump-truck loads!!! But Zombies need to go back to their graves in gaming!!! That boat has sailed.
Take ARMA2. A PC only "Realistic War Game". The ARMA2 "DayZ Zombie Mod" has been described by many game publications as... "Saving Bohemia Interactive's Financial Ass" by helping to sell more ARMA2s to those PC only gamers.
So.... Zombies helped make ARMA2 more Realistic?
And... you have the purist BF3, twitch shooter "Kolonel Kids" stating... that "BF3 is a 'Realistic War Shooter Game' and we don't need no stupid dinos ruining it!!" I say... BF3 is "Realistic"? In what Universe is BF3/BF4 Realistic?? Have ya seen the BF4 Trailers??? There's lots of Battlelog forum posts stating how "Un-Realistic" BF3 is... or was... and Battlefield is only becoming more and more COD like with each new release!!! EA/DICE is building BF4 to attract the COD kiddies to BF4 and bury the COD war game once and for all. And it looks like EA/DICE is on track to do it!!! But I digress....
Back to Dinosaurs. Adding an online Multiplayer DINO Mod DLC to BF4 would be hugely innovative with a totally new revenue source for EA/DICE in a huge way! Why would you not scoop up the COD Zombie kiddies... looking for a whole new experience in a new BF4 game on the PS4, done with the new Frostbite3 engine in glorious HD PS4 graphics?? It's a Win/Win project! AND IT WILL SELL MORE COPIES OF YOUR BF4 GAME!!! As zombies did for ARMA2 and COD Black Ops. ARMA2 is a more "Realistic" war shooter than just about anything in the gaming world today! And those "Zombies" kept it alive!!
Unfortunately... ARMA3's developers have stated that ARMA3, will continue to be a "PC Only" game and that Bohemia Interactive stated, it has no plans to bring ARMA3 to the PS4. That means, Bohemia is backing themselves into a corner that could make this the last ARMA game the PCers will ever see! Why would Bohemia want to put their new ARMA3 War Game on the PS4, as well as the PC?? That's humor.....
Why you ask? Because DayZ's Zombie Mod is about to become a Standalone Title and if Bohemia doesn't make a partnership with DayZ for it's ARMA3... ARMA3 may not be profitable.
Someone over at Bohemia, saw the forest through the trees... and saw a way to save ARMA3 and make more profits for Bohemia!!
BF4... will sell a lot of Game disks and digital downloads on the PS3 and the PS4 for sure! But how many more disks... could be sold, with a New DLC Mod including Dinosaurs in MP gameplay? A lot I think! The BF4 "War Gaming Purists" can just sit on their high horses and not buy the Dino DLC... and not include themselves in the Dino play! We are a Nation of Choice! They can play the old purest Conquest and Rush modes until they rot for all I care!! Dinosaurs are not part of the pure game... it's an add on for Christ sake!! Don't like it.... don't buy it!!
All this reminds me of that tired old PS3 player's argument, "THE SONY MOVE CONTROLLERS FOR FAGS... AND ONLY THE HAND CONTROLLER SHOULD BE USED IN PS GAMING!!!" That was once said about Horses... when someone invented the CAR! Limiting "Choice" is not what we are about. How a player chooses to play a game is no one else's business! I'll use a MOVE Controller... you use a Thumb Hand Controller. I just choose the car over the horse!
So... I fully support a DLC full of Dinosaurs for a fresh change to the new BF4 game. BF4, a war video game, that we "ALL KNOW"... will be a truly realistic war game!!!
Only EA & DICE will be the losers, for not making that Dino DLC... and raking in those extra profits!!
As in... ROCKSTAR and GTA5 and a Billion dollars in sales, in the first 3 days, after the game's release. It must be a bitch for Rockstar to have to make all those extra trips to the bank!!!!
Why would EA/DICE want to go to all that extra trouble???

I figured I'd make a rather non-biased thread about the dinosaur mode that some people want. Most of these threads are, "Dinosaurs r be awsum," or, "Anybody who wants teh dinozz is a fag!" So I figured I'd put together a thread consisting of the real arguments against and for a dinosaur mode.
It would take resources best used elsewhere.
I see this argued quite a bit against dinosaurs. Sure, it could do that but let's think this through?
DICE could easily hire a separate team specifically for the dinosaur mode. They wouldn't need to worry about the money spent hiring them because obviously they would make plenty of money selling the mode in a DLC. Of course the FB3 Engine is most likely something that requires time to learn and a team could learn it and create the mode but what if they don't want to take the time to teach new workers? Well they still wouldn't be wasting resources by putting those who already work for DICE on the dinosaur project because they will make money to use on later DLC anyway.
It would attract all the CoD players!
There's no denying this, it would attract CoD players. Is this really that bad though? First of all like it or not, DICE is trying their best to attract the CoD players, sorry. I myself was a CoD player before BF3. I'm no harm on the community. I'm sure you elitists will scower through my stats for one thing to say "lol CoD player," over but oh well. CoD players themselves do not change the game. It doesn't matter if those quick scoping squeakers join Battlefield if it doesn't have the same mechanics. In fact you should want CoD players switching because of Dinosaurs, it would add revenue and therefore resources to DICE, it would not change the core game, more on this later, and you would be able to stomp the nooblets until they quit the game and only play for dinosaur mode.
Now as I said, you want CoD players to join now, before DICE changes the core mechanics stricly to attract CoD players! Yes, they're doing it, like it or not. They will keep changing he mechanics each game until CoD players can play how they want. Don't believe me? Look at a few of the changes made to BF4. (I don't mind any changes personally, I know DICE knows what they're doing.)
There already are dinosaur games! Go play them!
The people who say this, like it or not, are correct. Dinosaurs are not needed in Battlefield. That being said I understand why people think the idea of a dinosaur mode would be good. There are no dinosaur games made by DICE with FB3. Then again DICE might not be capable of tackling the AI monster job that is dinosaurs. I'm sure they could do it but who knows, we would have to see if they can. About dinosaurs not being needed, well neither was zombies in CoD but that was a major victory over other FPS games, having a separate survival mode. Dinosaurs would definitely beat zombies if done correctly, and on large scale with vehicular warfare, but is DICE up to the challenge.
Unfortunately I could not think of any other arguments people have made towards this topic especially since usually it is just, "dino = awesome," or, "dino = childish."
Please no stupid 1 liner comments, I am arguing neither for or against it merely stating both sides. If you give me another point worth mentioning I'll edit it in.
