I play a lot of games still and need to diversify a bit. I play Halo almost exclusively because I love the franchise and continue to have so much fun with it, but wanted to know what the rest of the community felt was a good game to play alongside it, or that also deserves my attention moving forward. My personal thoughts, prior to hearing what people have to say and seeing poll results…
Battlefield: I’ve only played a bit of 3’s MP and 4’s campaign, seems fun and massive, but I’m not overly familiar with the franchise.
COD: I own Black Ops 3 and enjoy it, but not as big a fan of the style of play (run and gun, fastest trigger finger). That said, investing more time into a game lends itself to you liking it more, so maybe I just need more time with this series to appreciate it more when Infinite Warfare comes out!
Destiny: The Collection: It’s always tempted me, each passing new release of the game. But fear of not enjoying the universe / lore has kept me away (I love a good story), and how far behind I’d be at this point. The biggest draw continues to be that everyone says the actual gameplay is fantastic, the game sounds addicting, and very team-oriented with a great community.
Doom: I’m probably the least interested in this title, but if everyone says it’s amazing (MP and campaign) I’d definitely give it a solid try.
Far Cry 4 / Primal: I’ve never really invested any time into this series, and it’s an open-world shooter, so very different from the rest of the options on this list - is it worth playing through them? Can you invest several hours into it?
Gears of War 4: I never played 1 - 3, at least not much - very little campaign, even less MP. But the series was very popular for a reason, and a new entry into the timeline may be the perfect way to get into that franchise.
Overwatch: I’ve heard it’s amazing for cooperative, objective gameplay, which sounds like a blast. Looks odd and not sure if there’s any story tied to it, but gameplay is probably the most important thing for me to decide on future games.
Titanfall 2: Confession… I loved the first game, and already have pre-ordered the 2nd. But I still am considering a 3rd game to play out of this list, and who knows, maybe I’ll find that I’m going into the wrong new title of the holiday season - perhaps I should be doing one of the others above instead or in addition to it!
Would love to hear everyone’s thoughts!
