GamerDebates takes a look at the possible rivalry evolving between two extremely hyped future releases: Destiny and Titanfall.
Personally, I look forward to Destiny more. Mostly because it's multi-genre I suppose.
Destiny will outsell TF 2:1 at least. Probably 4:1 with the marketing push Actiblizz is going to give it and considering the spread of platforms it has. Plus it looks like a more flushed out and complete online experience. A real MMORPG not only a lobby based MP shooter.
it's not even a competition, Destiny will blow TitanFall away
Destiny + TitanFall on X1 = happiness
It will outsell TF because it's on PS4. Nuff Said.
Does there have to be a rivalry? What is this obsession where everything needs to have a comparative? When did people stop playing games for fun? Answers to any of those is appreciated.
Destiny for me, found Titanfall boring after a while, Destiny looks like a game changer to me, finally some much needed innovation in the MP genre. Looking forward to the PS4 beta, shame it is not coming to PC though.
@darthv72 Yes it has to be a competition. Remember last year when EA affirmed a sales rivalry with Activision saying that the competition was a good one. EA goal is to take down COD. Period. Titanfall vs Destiny is an extension of Battlefield vs COD. Activision was even more brazen by claiming that Destiny will be the best selling new IP of this generation. We are merely entertaining the admitted rivalry between the two mega publishers. Its just another game they are playing against each other.
Whils I'm more excited for Destiny, I don't understand the comparisons at all. It would be like comparing Quake 3 Arena to Planetside. One is an arena based competitive shooter and the other a mmo-hybrid.
Destiny looks really good, so does Titanfall. Not sure why they would be compared in an way though, or be in competition. They are very different, can't wait to play them both.
Lol why are these even being compared? Two totally different games. Same thing when people compare infamous against Titanfall. And of course destiny will out sell Titanfall. Destiny is on both gaming platforms while Titanfall is on one. Some of these articles are ridiculous, how they get approved is beyond me.
I was coming in here to say I was personally looking forward to Destiny way more than Titanfall and I can see I am not the only one. I thought it was ridiculous when Gametrailers put Titanfall as the number one most anticipated next-gen title.
@NewMonday Really? Considering facts, was it TitalFall that earned the major and most awards by GameCritics in E3 2013? Destiny is missing from the winners list. And the hype for Destiny is not as high as TitanFall, and that is after players get to experience the game. Your opinion is yours only without merit.
actually their are multiple surveys showing gamers much more interested in Destiny, even XB1 owners also up to 2 weeks ago Destiny was leading Titanfall in pre-orders on XB1 despite it releasing over 8 months later. as for the hype a big part of it is paid for, MS pays money to those who post positive videos for them.
Destiny VS Titanfall. Do you know who will be the ultimate when its all said and done? AngelicIceDiamond
I will be enjoying both on my x1. Both look like great fun in their own way
I'll be enjoying both.. on PC :P
No rivalry. Destiny hands down.
Destiny all the way! In my opinion the MS exclusivity is hurting TitanFall. It would have a bigger impact if it was available on PS4 too. Not that i care that much about TF but more platforms = more sales.
Destiny looks epic.....Titanfall looks decent
Destiny the ability to be able to traavel to other planets with your buddies sounds so freaking cool.
One is trying to be a world set around a FPS while the other is a setting, an arena setting, for a FPS. Still, Titanfall may win out for its arcade mechanics while Destiny tried to be a more serious Borderlands.
Well, with one being more limited in availability than the other, that may play a large role in success.
Aside from being first person they aren't anything alike...
They are nothing alike. Very different in how they're designed to be played. Titanfall is geared towards competitive gaming, probably e-sports ready. Destiny is more of an open ended, cooperative focused game. Also has competitive, but the open world, and lore are major focal points. They both will have large fanbases
Destiny will obviously sell more. Since its on Sony platforms too. Personally I'm looking forward to Destiny more.
TF should be compared to online only shooters
MAG Vs Titanfall, there you go.
There no comparsion. There different video game types IMO, Titanfall is a online only Competitive shooter, and Destiny is a story driven RPG with both SP and MP choices and role playing.
Destiny and Titanfall are two games that really shouldn't be compared. But if I must choose, Destiny is hands down my most anticipated game. I think they said it's on pace to be the highest selling new IP of all-time.
Destiny all the way. Beta testing is coming up for Destiny in a couple weeks as well. Preordered to get into it at Gamestop.
GTFO apples and oranges. TF is a shallow arena arcade shooter and Destiny is an MMO experience.

everyone seems to think bungie makes really great games yet they only made halo as far as I know. respawn is only being hyped because there making a spiritual successor to cod so yeah I got my xbox one but I don't know if I would go as far as to say which one will last the longest.
Not having a go, but using your argument, Respawn (aka Infinity Ward) have only made COD games. I just found TF to be a little to like the Modern warfare series but with mechs and those games were getting a little repetitive of late. I am still toying whether I should get it for PC or not. On the other hand, I can see genuine innovation with what Bungie are doing with Destiny.
I love that I can play both on my platform of choice but I'm curious as to why they are considered rivals since they are nothing alike. Meh, who cares? My Xbox is prepared!
cuz there's nothing else to write about smh
Both games will be great! XB1 owners get to play both, lucky basterds!! =P
News in development. ..
it will be only competition for those with a ps4. x1 owners get both
And so does PC - hooray! :)
Destiny is on PC? I didn't know this.
I don't want to have to think while playing video games. I just need flashing lights and fast moving thingies. Thinking takes too much effort, and honestly, they should just get rid of any story altogether. I also think they should turn peggle into a FPS (which would be the most epic game ever in that case).
I win bc I have an x1 to play both :-)
PC? Resolution? Frames per second? Oh, why am I even bothering...? lol
He still gets to play both so yes he does win. And not everyone owns a gaming pc
How are they different...their just as close as COD was to halo FPS Always online One is multiplat and one is only on Microsoft Respawn started with COD...bungie invented halo These games have a similar orgin and embody things from there predecesor...anyone who refutes that doesn't know much about either game and is just getting them for the hype With that said COD has always sold more than halo because it's MultiPlat but this is a good comparison
Based on genre, its more like COD, BF, and maybe Halo versus Titanfall. Destiny is doing something far more experimental and trailblazing and is a different genre of shooter. Titanfall, as good as it may be, is still another k/d shooter at the end of the day like COD and BF which are the current most popular tittles in that genre.
how can you really compare the two? Completely different games. They BOTH will be spectacular I have no doubt. Great year to be a gamer.
Titanfall 720p is not enough for me to spend money on a xbone, rather play it on PC, but Destiny is the one that really got my attention as it will be truly something new, not the same tiresome shooter multiplayer experience
I don't care about Titanfall, but Destiny is a system buyer for me.
How can you even compare these 2 lol Destiny will be so much better
Funny how you can add guns/science-fiction to a game and the 'comparison articles' make less sense. I just don't see how Titanfall skipped realms, Destiny is an open universe game whereas TF is a shooter.
That's like borderlands 2 vs COD
what a pointless article, this site is dropping further and further down every day
You can't judge Titanfall if you don't have a platform to play it on. That being I think I'm gonna go with destiny it's more ambitious. And I'm gonna play it on my xbone
I can judge Titanfall. It's a forgettable COD 6vs 6 multiplayer clone with Mechs. Oh, and I do have a platform to play it on that's not a X-Bone. But I don't care to play it. It doesn't compare to Destiny at all really.
Good thing n4g has recent history.
The only thing that's similar about these games is the fact that they're futuristic shooters. One has a story, open world and superpowers while the others have mechs and parkour.
What I have learned from this site, is that the Sony fanboys will do whatever to trash a game to bring Xbox one down just like some of the negative comments on this site for TF. They will scourge and propagate hate for they think it will improve their life in general. Pathetic lowly human beings.
No, MS brought themselves down and spawned negativity toward themselves and their Bone. It feels good to bash after MS slapped you in the face. You better get used to MS bashing.
Personally, I look forward to Destiny more than Titanfall. I enjoy both the Fps and Rpg elements. I seem to be more interested in PvE than PvP. Customization ranges from character to weapons to vehicles. I also look forward to both the single player campaign and the multiplayer.
not really comparable, the game is more like borderlands than anything. seems to be focused on loot, which is addicting and fun :) im excited.
