Why I’m On The Fence About Titanfall

Today marks the 6th day since Titanfall was released.  As of right now I haven’t purchased it.  I usually like to wait and see what other people’s reviews are.  So far it seems like it has been a pretty big success.  Although I know that a lot of people have some really good things to say about it, I’m still not truly convinced.

Aside from your typical first-person game, Titanfall really does not seem to impress me all that much.  Not only is this game multi-player only, but only 12 people can play at one time.  Aside from that, the gameplay looks a lot like Halo and Call of Duty.

Nothing from the game really seems to stand out to me.  From all of the Titanfall trailers that I’ve seen so far, all I’ve noticed is your typical shoot-em up, gunfire explosions, and character chases.  I’m afraid that once I buy this game, I’ll get bored of it quickly because I’ve played so many like this before.

I don’t see anything else that’s different in this game.  I really think that in order to make a truly interesting first-person game, you have to add some extra elements that no other game has.  Having the game be a multi-player only is certainly not the answer.  There are so many other things that can be done besides your typical killing missions.

I think that adding an intriguing story-line would be a good place to start.  Also, adding some guns that no one else has seen before is another good idea.  Of course, there are many other things that can help as well.

In all honesty, I’m not trying to say that I won’t wind up buying this game in the end, I’m just being a bit cautious because of all the other first-person games out there.  Perhaps I shall have to do a bit more research.  One site I did find a bit interesting was Titanfall review.  I found a pretty cool video that highlights the action-packed gameplay that Titanfall has to offer.

I should point out that after having watched this trailer, my opinions started to change a bit.  Guess I’ll just have to wait and see what I decide to do.

Why I Play Games

People play games for many different reasons.  It could be as a form of entertainment, a way to kill time, or as a way to escape reality.  For me its a bit different.  I don’t know what it is, but when I play games, I feel like the world seems to be put on pause for a bit.  All my worries and frustrations leave my mind and I become at peace with myself.

The sheer challenge and drive I get when I play games is truly undeniable.  My heart races, my palms sweat, and I just  can’t seem to contain myself.  Sometimes I get so into my game, that my siblings just look at me and think I’m crazy.  They say things like “how can you play games all day?”

My answer is simple.  Because it makes me happy.  Everyone has something that makes them happy.  Well, I am not exception to this rule.  Video games to me are like a drug.  The more I play them, the more I can’t stop.  As long as video games continue to exist, I will continue to play.

It’s as simple as that.  In the end, you can’t judge me for what I love.  Then again maybe you can, but you know what, I just don’t care.  Do what makes you happy, and I’ll do what makes me happy. Bye now..
