    If you walk into a store and buy a game with ANY prior knowledge of that game then you assume the risk of getting a bad game. I simply don't buy the fact that people walk into a store and walk out with a game without knowing ANYTHING about it. You claim it happens but I don't believe it does.

    Just admit to being wrong about hype and move on. This argument is now tedious

    I never argued about the hype. You can go back and look at each and every post and you won't find it.

    My point is that a game can be worth $60 if it's multiplayer only. It doesn't have to have an SP component to be worth $60.

    That's the only point I've ever made about Titanfall.

    Of course a game can be multi player only and be worth 60 bucks. Titan fall isn't one of those games

    The game's worth is determined by the individual. I've bought games that have more modes and didn't think it was worth 60 bucks.

    I've bought more that my share of games that weren't worth the $60 I paid for them.

    My experience agrees with you. Working in electronics retail for 2yrs the only people who did not know what game they wanted were little kids 11 and younger and that's probably because their access to the internet is limited. Everyone else knew exactly what they wanted to get. Teenagers knew what they wanted, parents knew what their teenagers wanted, adults knew what they wanted. The only time I had to wait by the game case for people to look at the back of a game case were with little kids with their parents.

    This is an age thing I think. Guys on here who actually think people just go and spend money on game without knowing anything about it are probably in their 30's and over and choose to be oblivious to the way things are now. Those older guys did that back then I'm sure because ways of finding out about a game were little (maybe a magazine). In this day and age there is no excuse for being ignorant because of the multiple amount of options someone has to be informed before dropping that $60. $#@!, look at the game case, see a game you never heard of pull out your phone go to youtube, type in name of unheard game, bam, a video review for unheard game.

    Knowledge before the 60. What a great thing.

    Meanwhile I'll refrain from calling out the people who had a problem paying for live but all of sudden drop $60 dollars on a game they know nothing about just for $#@! and giggles.

    Yuck mulitplayer only games without campaigns...
    Some of the crap we have been infested with in the past...

    Quake Arena
    Unreal Tournament
    Tribes..


    Absolute crap..all of them...who would pay for this stuff...

    [side note: I love you UT you my favorite game ever]

    Lets put a cork in if multiplayer only games are worth it.

    They are, and have been for years.
    I am no longer participating in these forums, I wish all of you on the PSU Forums the best for the future.

    Those were fantastic and, for their time, cutting edge.

    Titanfall is "good" and "below average" respectively.

    Thats fine, and I can respect that its not going to appeal to everyone ( I haven't played it so I don't know what I think of it).
    But people taking marks off just cause it mulitplayer are just wrong..

    Sure, but you are going back to a time when there weren't hundreds of multiplayer options. No matter. If tons of folks are buying TF then that is really the only justification it needs, isn't it? I just think it would have been more of a slam-dunk if it had a campaign.

    titanfall is is the most fun I've had in a multiplayer game in a long time. It's definitely not below average. Not even close.

    It may have offered more perceived value to you, for sure, but adding a single player wouldnt have affected the multiplayer aspect.

    I think you're missing the point. Multiplayer games can be worth $60 -- that's not in question. I think what people are asking is if Titanfall is worth $60 that is being asked for it? [it doesn't need to have single-player to justify that cost.]

    For some, it seems to be.

    What was your invoice to Redmond for that post?

    @Sainraja,

    Correct. I have no problem with paying $60 for an MP game. The content and quality just has to be there.

    Just got the xbox one today traded in the ps3 and what not titanfall is surprisingly good. Only played a few games but really enjoying it. Must say as well kinect has surpassed all expectations heard some varying reports but it recognises about 90% of instructions and really does leave the ps camera in its wake

    I'm suggesting we cease with the 'getting paid' accusations. Stopping it before it gets any sillier.

    They handle cheaters and thus banned players with quite elegant solution.

    'nope, PS3 uses a wonderful low-level API called libgcm' - Repi

    This is the same solution that Rockstar used with GTA 5. Pretty good way to handle it if you ask me.
