Titan Fall, Why It Could Dethrone Most Of Today's Top Shooters

Titan Fall is the Xbox One exclusive that's set to take the top position as best first person shooter, but what is it that makes Titan Fall such a good looking game long before it's even out? (Next-Gen, PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Before all the Sony fanboys get here I'll save them a job. It's not Xbox One exclusive, it's on the Xbox 360 and PC as well.

"Everything about Titan Fall screams a shooter overhaul. The gun mechanics have been perfected to make for pinpoint accuracy, and even things like reload animations look amazing"

-Agreed this game is going to light up the XBL servers, everyone I know who's getting an X1 are talking about this game...sure does have that old COD hype to me.

As great as it looks its not going to beat COD as a Xbox/PC exclusive. EA already knows this. Even worse is the fact that PS4 will probably have a larger install base when TF launches. Unfortunately, EA is looking to be a victim of its own hype. By making the game an exclusive to Xbox, its never gonna be able to reach it true potential and will inevitable fall short of COD status.

The reaction to this reminds me of the first Halo. This game is blowing people away just but the gameplay options.

Am I the only one who wasn't impressed by this game?

Not I'm right there with you. No SP really? And it's still $60, that's crazy... The gameplay looks cool but its not up there with all the hype it's getting. After all it's just another COD like shooter with mechs. Star hawk was way more interesting in terms of mechs and being able to change the battlefield structure made every game a little different. Nothing against this game but i just don't see why this and Ryse are being held up on a pedestal like it is.

I think this is another case of "well it's all we got" happening.

So can you explain why killzone deserves all its hype?

I already know the answer, but I want to hear your argument.
Hicken  +   559d ago
@n4rc: Are you saying that Titanfall's worthiness of hype is dependent upon whether or not Killzone deserves its hype?

If that's NOT what you're saying- and we both know it's not- then your question is irrelevant.
n4rc  +   558d ago
Its completely relevant..

He wants to bash Xbox games saying they don't deserve the hype... But yet it seems perfectly acceptable to praise killzone or any other ps4 title.. And you sure as hell can't think they are anything less then perfect.

Its fanboy bullish!t. You know it and I know it..
PSVita  +   558d ago
Calm down there n4rc it's just video games lol

I have never said KZ was worthy of it hype. In fact I didn't even like the SP in KZ3 it had extremely long wait times and it was flat out boring. The multiplayer was fun but it was very rocky and unbalanced. So where in the world did you pull that from buddy?

But KZ is an established game with many fans while TF is unproven and we've only seen bits and pieces of what it's about and how it plays. Plus the no SP is just terrible. If they put all their time into just a multiplayer game then I hope it more than just COD with mechs but that remains to be seen.

I'm defiantly not a "fanboy" and ill call it as it is for both systems. I'm not just going to like or dislike a game because it an exclusive that childish.

Oh and Ryse does nothing for me but we'll see how it is after launch.

You see, it's irrelevant because you assume the people who take the stance that the PS4's games are worthy are automatically the same people who think XB1 games are underwhelming. You assume anyone who likes the PS4 and its games more see no faults with it or its software.

Which pretty much just means you're seeing what you want to see.

And THAT is the true hallmark of a fanboy: seeing whatever suits your argument, and ignoring all else.

Titanfall looks like it could be hella fun. I've said so since the first trailer I ever saw. But it really doesn't look anything special. Doesn't look better than Killzone. Isn't doing anything any other games haven't done.

It just... looks damn fun.

Is there something fanboyish about that?

According to you, yes. I'm a Sony fanboy because I think Killzone looks better- and is more deserving of its hype, based on my experience with the franchise- even though I think Titanfall still looks like a crapton of fun.

Go figure.

Fair enough..

But in keeping with fair..
I have yet to see you have anything to say that wasn't complete praise for ps4 and extremely critical of Xbox..

Having preferences is all well and good... But having said that... I prefer titanfall over killzone but I'm not heading to those articles to say that.. That's why I said what I did

If you're "keeping with fair," then you have to actually be LOOKING. I'll wager you haven't been doing that, so you haven't seen what you weren't looking for.

I'm not digging through my comment history, but the statements are there. I haven't "completely praised" every aspect of the PS4. I'm still on the fence about how much I'll like the touchpad on the DS4, and I still don't like the idea of having to pay to play online.

That said, bringing up Killzone.. PSVita didn't do that. Only you did. He brought up Starhawk, which is relevant given the use of mechs and how they could change the tide of battle. Hell, in that respect, Killzone would have been relevant there, too. But PSVita didn't even use that as the basis of his preference. He didn't say he disliked the game at all.

Actually, it's a pretty reasonable comment, overall.

So... what IS your problem with it?
chrissx  +   559d ago
1st of all its online only. There's no chance it has to dethrone d likes of BF or C0D
byeGollum  +   559d ago
yeah it's impossible because BF and COD both have amazing, and unique single player campaigns that people still play till today. ehehehe.

It will be an amazing title! It could very well dethrone COD/Battlefield, but I don't really care. I'm all about the single-player. This team, while they were at Infinity Ward, created some of the best campaigns in the industry. It upsets me that they're going multi-player only. :/
dethpuck  +   558d ago
They have multiplayer campaign chill.
WeaseL  +   559d ago
I will wait to see it running on XB1 that is not on a white plinth with vents and a lock.

Titan fall is the most exciting shooter coming next gen. The game has already won numerous awards over other shooters. It's good that ms landed this one for Xbox one . With titles like this one and Quantum Break , Xbox one will continue to be my main console for gaming.
jonboi24  +   559d ago
You mean main console for entertainment, it's how MS sees it as and markets it as.

Actually I didn't disagree, phantom disagree did that. I'm not angry the comment was meant to be cynical and sarcastic.

If they want to dethrone COD or BF4 it will be an uphill battle because plain and simply they are on more consoles. Graphic whores will complain about it using the source engine. COD fans, well they are usually blind to games outside of COD. Titanfall has the potential to take the crown. A lot will be revealed about it in the future. I can't wait to play it on PC.
dethpuck  +   558d ago
Standby for titanfall! The one weapon Microsoft has watch people come back to xbox when they realize psn isn't live and this baby drops
cunnilumpkin  +   558d ago
needs to be a LAUNCH

neither ps4 or xbox1 have one single game that makes me want one

plus, I would get this on pc anyway, it will have way better graphics, support 4k res for the future, and be cheaper
