While the multiplayer aspects of many contemporary games may be a lesson in frustration, as you die and die again in the never-ending grind up the leaderboards, single-player content is far different.
As is highlighted by the new Titanfall 2 trailer, single-player content is about making the gamer feel like a god.
In the trailer, we hear the voice over of generic grunt soldiers — the hapless, AI-controlled infantry you casually mow down during gameplay — explaining what makes pilots so effective.
Their speed, combat skills, and analytical abilities are only matched by overwhelming force — or another pilot.
While we can debate the efficiency of having your military s supersoldiers also require extreme vehicular combat training till the cows come home, there is no denying from this trailer that the player-controlled pilots are badasses.
They can run along walls, use grappling hooks, have decoys distract their enemies, and use their opponent s own weapons against them.
