So, here’s the thingio: I’m not a huge FPS fan. I think the last FPS I played was Black Ops, and that was YEARS ago. And even then I only tried my hand in online matches a few times — a venture that was short-lived because it caused yours truly some extreme anxiety. I’m way too goddamn twitchy and I end up shooting everything else BUT my enemy.
Not only am I twitchier than Twitch McGee, but I tend to bore of FPS titles because of the usual lack of story and in-depth characters. I love me a good story, and if I don’t have one to propel forward I lose interest in whatever game it is I’m playing. You know, there’s no purpose and all that.
So, enter Titanfall. And I’m not sure how to feel about it. I mean, obviously it’s a shooter, and the focus of the game is the multiplayer — two things I’m not generally fond of. That being said, all of the stellar previews and ravings I’ve been hearing have got my curiosity piqued. I’d say watching the above video helped fuel my interest gauge as well. Things like jetpacks and running up walls and shit are mechanics I’m not used to having at my disposal, so that’s enough persuasion right there to give it a shot.
It’s kind of weird when most everyone around you is all, “OMG TITANFALL! OMG! IT’S SO RAD!” when you’re not even sure if you’re excited for it or not. Like, I think I am? But why should I be when the core game consists of FPS-ness and online multiplayer? I think, if anything, I’m feeding off of all of buzz, and it’s hard not to especially when I put myself in the shoes of an FPS fan ‘cuz I can totally see why people are flipping tits over the game.
I think it’s one of those things I won’t know until l I have it in my hands and experience it with friends, you know? ANYWAY. Let me know if you’re stoked for Titanfall!
