After recently finding out that Titanfall will be online only (ZOMG what a noob!) I was wondering what other people thought about paying full price for games. Granted that Titanfall will have an online co-op campaign, it will not have the usual offline/go at your own pace SP apparently.
Personally, I like single player campaigns because for me part of the video game experience is the story arc and progression (ie: drama). Granted not all shooters have great campaigns, I still like to immerse myself in the universe in which the game takes place. If this is not included that is fine, but $39.99 seems more reasonable.
I buy Battlefield and CoD and never touch the campaigns, so to me it's no different. --- "Immigrants. That's all they do, you know. Just driving around, listening to raps, shooting all the jobs." - Malory Archer GT: Bessy67
Of course. I don't understand how some people have a problem with that. If you're looking for the online experience, which games like Titanfall are primarily online, then why have a SP? Why waste time and budget money on a terrible SP that nobody will like when you could just invest even more into the MP? If online play isn't your thing, then you're after the wrong game.
I think it's cool that Respawn is trying to 'meld' together SP and MP (like The Crew and The Division). You've still got story elements here and there and the MP aspect just makes it seem as though you're not the center of the universe. You're just a small cog in the overall machine and personally, I think that's pretty cool to know that a war's still going on even when you're 'off-duty'. --- Gamer Tag: MANNKILLER83 Proud Supporter of The Wonderbolts
