Titanfall is Still Missing Something – The Context to Keep it Interesting

Titanfall has always been fun to play but it still suffers from a lack lore and context. (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I think they should have kept the Titans "Ogre and Strider" as burn cards only, like in the beta. It made it so exciting when you finally got one.

The game is absolutely awesome as is, but I do think that having a loot element that powerful definitely makes you want to play more to earn that reward.

I don't know that a vs multiplayer game rally needs much context. I mean, what's the context behind counter strike?

When you think about it, titan fall has more supportive lore than similarly positioned mp only shooters...

Your comparison with CSGO brings up a valid question. What is the context behind Counter-Strike? I like to think the highly competetive nature of the game is the context. As much as I like Titanfall, it lacks a certain kind of competetiveness that makes multiplayer intriguing. CSGO has this element.

I wish Titanfall was just a tad more "difficult", because now it's almost too easy to dominate a match if you are familiar with the fps genre.

That's debatable, but I think the author was speaking more along the lines of a narrative behind the conflict.

Titan falls narrative, while weak, is actually stronger than most MP only titles.

And when you think about MP rarely ever 'makes sense.' In goldeneye, why is everyone in a siloh shooting at friend and foe alike? What's the premise behind the original quake games? People just play the games because they are fun, and don't really concern themselves with the context.

If he means a good campaign story i would agree. Online he's wrong Titanfall has more than enough content.

ConteXT, not conteNT.

Thats cuz there is no single player campaign - it has a good story and a kick ass campaign could have been done but the devs wanted to ship and sell the online only craze that we seem to have today. It is still fun as hell and I love it for the online but a real interesting campaign would have made it a better overall package.

I think it all depends on the campaign mode. If its like cod or bf campaign that you get about 4 to 6 hours out of ide rather just have a MP game.

Titan fall is a great MP game I've not really hammered it the way I thought I would but that is because I have less time to game now and too many games to get through. I did play titan fall for the first time in a few months yesterday and I really enjoyed the match where you have one person on each team as a target which I've not played before so it was nice to see new content in the game to when I last played it.

All titanfall needs is a few new modes and its all good. Its an already fun experience though.

Funny how hyped this game was and no one even talks about it anymore and i totally forgot about it.

Just out of curiosity does anyone know the current player count on the Xbone version?

To this day i still play it a lot. Capture the flag can get intense.

In your opinion its the best fps on the market. Besides, if its that good wouldn't it have moved more Xbox one's?

So true.

You can't compare Titanfall to BF. Battlefield might be slower but there are way more methods of play. Titanfall is fun, but not deep.

This game needs a real campaign. I love it, play it once every week or two, but it just does not have anything to make me want to play every day.
Torgul  +   410d ago
I know how to make this game better than it is, EVERYONE should use his mic!
superchiller  +   410d ago
The biggest problem with Titanfall? No single player content whatsoever. Makes it easy to pass on this game for many of us who prefer SP games.

Titanfall is fairly good but I absolutely don't understand all the hype it received from people who played it at E3 and before release. It wasn't close to the game changer that the media said it was. Honestly, I think Garden Warfare is better.

I wish it had offline multiplayer vs AI
