Its not a crap game though.

Its not a crap game going by metacritic, doesn't matter what the hype machine says. If I believed the hype machine around here, well....

Those other next gen games don't have titanfall awards nor level of hype. That's why Titanfall is being singled out compared to these other games that you and mynd want to bring up. Awards and hype. Awards and hype
IGN best of show 2012 Tomb Raider: Metacritc 85-87
IGN Best Xbox 360 game 2012: Halo 4: Metacrtic 87
IGN best of show 2010 Rage: Metacritic 79
Gaming Excellence best shooter of 2012: Metro Last Light Metacritic :82
Need I go on? I cant be bothered, seriously, stop believing all this "hype hoopla" and play the game on its merits.
On its merits, it the best dam shooter available for next gen, so..well shit all those awards are correct.
On its merits it WAS the best game at E3 according to those people that saw it.
Shiiit, didnt know they gave out "game at E3 that will score the highest next year" awards.
Oh they dont?
Any award given to anything before release is nothing more than propaganda
They aren't reviews, people need to get over this sort of thing.
But yeah, then using those things as some sort of indictment is little more than a PR stunt folks.
This will be my new sig if inFamous gets a higher MC score.
Best dam shooter available? Out of a handful that have come out since November? Ok.....maybe? Pretty much why when Yungstar was saying TF was the de facto "game of the year" in his posts, I said there were a lot of games yet to come out. I'm not sure being the "best dam shooter.....so far" is what MS signed up for when they wrote that check out to EA.

so tell me, what happens a few years down the line when EA decides to pull the plug on the titanfall servers? essentially your stuck with a paperweight disc (or in the case of the digital version, wasted hdd space).
your fighting a losing battle dude
I also think it's cute you somehow know how much replayability Infamous will have.
From what I've seen of Infamous, it is probably worth the $60 price tag. But I could totally be wrong and it totally undelivers on its hype ala Titanfall.. which I foolishly bought 2 copies + 1 season pass of. Honestly, game should have been 30-40, not 60.
Your logic here is.. Well, shallow? This isn't about "the experience of Titan Fall" it's about the overall 'experience' that the user has with that end product vis a vis other modern titles in the same price bracket.
but i disagree from the point of that because online games aren't meant to last that long anyway...servers being up after years is just gravy. and now that we're paying for the servers to be up, no reason to take them down. MS hasn't announced any shut downs as far as I know. Sony has. One was paid, one was free. you guys figure it out.
if the online game has enough content to last a year then i think it's worth it. BF4 isn't worth $60 either...it's really just worth $40 and then you are done playing it in 3 months...and buy the premium for $50...which is also not worth $50 but more like $30 (because one expansion is just a remake of previous stuff, the other is weak). So really, they are charging us $110 for something that is worth $70.
point is, EA needs extra money to pay their CEOs and upper management and it's totally justified. remember, they also need to feed their private-school children and trophy wives.
