So Battlefield is still crashing. It wasn't before, but recently it has been. What is the cause of this?

By crash do you mean it closes or something else like BSOD.
Lots of things can cause a program to crash.
What OS are you running?
Are you running any other programs at the time it crashes?
If it ran fine before installing patches I would reinstall it and not install the patches.

I've reinstalled multiple times. I'm using Windows 7 and it plays for 10 seconds, the windows says its stopped working.

There was a recent patch which I think was leading up for the use of mantle. I had some pretty crazy audio issues where you could here ambient but not your normal running and shooting noise. BF4 more so then BF3 has had more technical issues. Its a better game by far in some places but fluidity is not one of them.

I would try bringing up performance monitor then open Battlefield and watch for large CPU spikes, Intels extreme tuning utility would be better but it doesn't work on all systems.
If there is a big usage spike just before it crashes whatever process causes it is most likely the culprit.
Do any other programs have glitches or crash?
At what point does it crash? (like when you get to the main menu or when the game loads)

This isn't really a place to discuss which game is better.

It is after the game loads, and I am able to play. I have an AMD processor.

Also, no other programs crash like this. I don't really think it is a CPU thing, but most people are not having troubles with this problem anymore.

It sounds like it crashes right about the time the processor would be stressed the most. I would bet performance monitor (it's built into windows 7 just click start and type perf mon in the search box) will tell you what's happening.
