There is a vast expanse of games out there, ones that will appeal to each individual’s tastes and wants and definition of value. If Titanfall isn’t one of them, that should be perfectly OK.
The game is being created for people who enjoy online gaming sessions/clans and etc..I'm fine with studios sticking to their original vision and not just adding sp or mp just for the sake of having it...I can't sit here and be upset about publishers trying to force mp on titles that were built for the sp experience but complain when a mp game doesn't offer any type of single player modes.
I do agree, but the game needs to be able to keep its servers going for a long time if it's multiplayer only. This needs to be an evergreen game, one that doesn't get yearly releases to divide up the multiplayer userbase. Quite frankly, I actually appreciate the idea of focusing specifically on one multiplayer mode to make it really good instead of tacking on a terrible single-player like Call of Duty does these days.
Yes! Cod and Bf should go for MP only in the future IMO.
Hi, thanks for reading. I am the author of this piece and a huge COD fan. Nothing about their single player campaigns is "tacked on." You may not like them, hell, I thought Ghosts was weak myself, but the amount of effort put into these campaigns hardly qualifies as "tacked on."
I concur with N2NOther. For me, I've always felt single player was the highlight of the COD games for me. There have been COD games where I didn't even touch the multiplayer but instead choose to play through the single player campaigns a few times on various difficulty settings. "Tacked on" single player is something that I've never, ever associated with some of the excellent campaign experiences I've played over the years in the COD series. While they don't always hit it out of the park, "tacked on" they are not. I wouldn't buy a COD game that didn't have a single player campaign, just as I won't be playing Titanfall, and there's nothing wrong with that. That's simply my taste in games. Multiplayer doesn't do a damn thing for me for the most part.
I actually enjoyed Ghosts SP campaign a lot more than the MP, which is a major first. The MP felt too similar and maps are terrible to big for the player count.
I think that people who are complaining about COD sp not being tacked on could at least admit that while the single player might not be tacked on, it is at least mediocre and redundant. I can't remember the last time I saw something honestly new in either the single player or the multiplayer of a call of duty game. People still buy it but that doesn't make it good. I think if they just focused on the multiplayer they might make a better game. I always play the single player once and then I don't touch it.
The headline of this article is one of the best I have seen in recent memory. Some people act as thought the developer is personally making the game for them. These developer have a concept for a game that they believe would be very appealing to a certain group of gamers. If they change that concept to accommodate everyone who cries "what about me", they end up turning off the very people they were courting, and the people they try to please, end up not buying the game anyway.
There's never been a game that's perfect for everyone. And there never will be. But, A lot of people will like this game.
It definitely is for me. Thats all that matters
Still not sure what platform to get it on love my achievements lately but the pretty of pc may win I am so torn.
This may be the first PC game i bought in a while. I don't own a X1 and never will, so PC is my only viable option, unless the 360 port looks decent. I just hope I can get into the Beta and see if my PC can run it properly.
Yeah my pc will eat it for breakfast but I don't have many origin friends so I am leaning towards the XB1 version.
Looks ass boring easy mode cod stylee dross but yeh that means itl sell loads lol.
Great use of your bubble... Back on topic, I can't wait for this game. I hope they pull it off.
I'm still stuck at a crossroads. I'm used to having all systems but found myself getting more use out of my ps3 last gen because of exclusives I actually played. Am I willing to spend 500.00 just to play Titanfall though? I've tried but can't get into halo or gears but did enjoy forza with my 500.00 wheel that doesn't work on xbox one. Mt 360 experience pretty much was consumed by cod so I guess if Titanfall takes the place of the time I spent on cod then it just may be worth it. ......decisions!
Im in the same situation! Im went for a PS4 and im loving it dont get me wrong, but TitanFall looks great for a MP game, but is it really worth the £500 X1, with no other games looking promising for me in the future of X1, just seems like I might have to get the 360 port/PC version which might not run on my computer :/ or of course just wait for the sequel to come out on more platforms.
Can't wait for the beta!
"There is a vast expanse of games out there, ones that will appeal to each individual’s tastes and wants and definition of value. If Titanfall isn’t one of them, that should be perfectly OK." I totally agree.
All I'm saying is the game is multiplayer only it shouldn't be $60. Maybe $40 or so.
Why though? Should single player games be only $40?
It's not like MP only is new or anything, not sure why all the consternation.
