Titan Fall 2 has a pretty good campaign. I haven't even checked out the MP yet because I been having too much fun playing solo. Key word being "Solo." You shouldn't have to be logged into the internet to have fun. That's one of the biggest problems with this entire generation.

"You shouldn't have to be logged into the internet to have fun"
exactly this ^^^,
"That's one of the biggest problems with this entire generation."
Totally agree ^^

When was when you need it connection to play games like Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Solid, Super Mario World , Uncharted , Metroid Prime, Ninja Gaiden on the xbox, Splinter Cell, Gran Turismo, PGR, Omnimusha, ICO, Jet Set Radio, Doom 3, etc. just to name a few stunning games, you never needed online or patches to have awesome experiences in those games.

We need great campaign in games cause thats how a great IP is born, no freaking multiplayer only game will ever do that!, period!

Why do you think that all games should be only single player focused?

A great intellectual property can be born from any concept and any genre...

Please....stop. your hate isn't needed here bud. Yet OverWatch exist, yet titles like the division and Destiny broke ridiculous records.

Again... a great intellectual property can be created from any genre.

TheEvilResident19971377d ago

Yeah but there was a lot of hate for Division and Destiny for some parts people get tired of multiplayer games including me just give me my SP.

_-EDMIX-_1377d ago (Edited 1377d ago )

Don't play them...


Yes people get tired of multiplayer games but people get tired of all genres in existence...

Consider you might spend all your time playing a single player game in the same way someone who loves multiplayer games spends all their time playing that , it's merely a different of game taste there is not one that is better than the other, it's all subjective.

"Yeah but there was a lot of hate for Division and Destiny"

Because single player games get 0 hate? All games will have some form of community that has some sort of hate for them, regardless.

Stop bashing genres.

I bought DESTINY for the single player content, besides the Strikes and Raids , i comlpeted all the missions solo.

But yeah some IP's can grow that are mutiplayer focused games.

Sciurus_vulgaris1377d ago

Battlefield, Counterstrike, Overwatch, and Rock League started as mp only IPs.

MilkMan1377d ago

No great SP, no buy. It's pretty simple really. MP only is for the birds, no matter how many times publishers try to stress their argument.

_-EDMIX-_1377d ago (Edited 1377d ago )

? What do you mean Publishers? The developers are the ones that create these games.

It's not some conspiracy against single player it's merely that developer has an idea for a multiplayer game.

That's as stupid as saying puzzle games have some conspiracy against single player games.

"No great SP, no buy"

That's nice, thats for you to decide bud, you don't speak for all gamers.

You could like single-player titles without trying to put down other gamers...

I see no reason to hate, name call or be hostile.

Don't really buy FPS for campaign, been playing FPS since original Doom. There just isn't much that hasn't been done before and they all seem the same. The notable exception was the latest DooM
