Playing the BETA and all, and seeing these still photos - one asks if this game can actually be considered...ya know, "next-gen."
You can remind me the gameplay is fun, smooth and impressive; and it is. But you're gonna have a hard time convincing me that this game is going to be a game where your mouth is gonna drop and go "wow, now THAT is Next Gen gaming."
Regardless, the games fun. It's easily addictive.
But one thing i've been worried a little, and i dont know if it should just be a minority feeling of worrisome, but....is anyone else worried about how the word "easily accessible" is being used by gaming journalist in any preview of this game or hands-on impression?
We keep moaning about gaming casuals and how its ruining the game industry and making games easier, but then....we praise this game. A game that allows you to feel super badass killing enemies...but they're just dumb downed AI bots with very little challenging aspects to them. Dont get me wrong, i go all woohoo and "fuck yeah" when i play the game and go for streaks - but its hard to not remember you're killing enemy AI bots, and not real players.
I feel like, as far as i can remember, that is the noobest and most casual thing any game could have by former gaming standards. But now its all "man, i love how this game is so accessible to even a guy like me who doesn't even like shooters. Its great for gaming!"
...but is it?
That's really the only conflicting thing thats been on my mind playing the game.
There's nothing next gen about Titanfall. Hence the reason it's also on 360 and I bet the 360 version looks just like the Xbone version hence the "delay". Lemmings are paying $500 to play a game they could easily play on their 360s for $60.
