Look, if we want to be upset about anything, can we address how completely absurdity of the numbering scheme for the Battlefield series?

Not only have we gone from Battlefield 4 (a game with a modern setting) to Battlefield 1 (a game that takes place during World War I) to Battlefield V (a game that takes place during World War II), but now we’re using roman numerals instead of arabic numerals!?

(This doesn’t even get into the earlier Battlefield 1942 to Battlefield 2 to Battlefield 2142 to Battlefield 1943 ridiculousness.)

When will this madness end!?
