I feel like we are misreading each other’s tones because you have come across bizarrely hostile/confrontational in this interaction from my perspective

My apologies, that is not my intent. You've mentioned in other threads how few games you play these days. I didn't know you've played several of those other games.

I tend to prefer FPS games with slower mechanics that don't require lightning quick reaction times.

What'd you think of Metroid Prime?

getting too old and slow for twitch shooters amirite?

i like games that focus more on team objectives and a slightly slower pace of play too. i'm not big on FPS for the most part though.

No worries; I’m sure I often come off harsher than I think I do. I think we just have opposing tastes in FPS games; the slower ones usually just feel clunky and antiquated to me.

By the way, if we’re talking multiplayer, Titanfall 2 would be my pick.

The latest Doom is not very good. Totally worth the $5 I paid for it, but it got repetitive very quickly.

That world needs a slower pace/build-up and a more unsettling atmosphere. I hate how they just throw you into the chaos. Made it feel very cheap and “game-y” fo me.

Bingo. At first I was like, "Whoa, and we're off!" Two hours later I was like "meh."

I just downloaded Titanfall 2.

What do you think of team based/strategy FPSs?

Also, what do you think of Treyarch dropping the single player story mode from the new Black Ops?

That's not a FPS. That's an adventure game with a first person perspective.

What would be an example of that?

I think it’s the death of COD. A COD game without a campaign is worthless. This will be the first COD game I haven’t bought since BO2.

Overwatch, Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike, etc.

It makes financial/business sense, but it's a huge bummer for the industry.

I think the Bioshock and Half-Life games on PC are the best the genre has seen. Console shooters just don't feel very good in general to me.

Destiny 2 is a super polished FPS. Worth checking out.

How's the grind? I thought the mechanics of the first installment were top notch. It just got really repetitive.

Grind is better. Still has the top notch mechanics from the first destiny. Honestly, it's the best mechanics in my mind.

If I had some people to play with online I would be more inclined to check it out.
