Giant robots fighting, large scale battles, a crazy adventure. No, this isn’t a Michael Bay film; it’s Titanfall 2 and it’s nominated for Game of the Year! Titanfall 2 appeared this fall and blew the minds of game lovers everywhere. The original game from Respawn back in 2014 intrigued gamers by taking the first person shooter genre and adding some much needed improvements to the gameplay. The addition of wall running, jetpacks, and the badass Titans make this series very addicting and fun for all. This sequel took the one thing that we all desperately wanted from the original and made it amazing, a single player story mode! Getting to fight beside and in your Titan while cultivating a bond with it is an experience that I think everyone can appreciate. Although this game was kind of overshadowed by being released in between a new Call of Duty and Battlefield game, I think it held its own. I’m not sure about you, but the FPS genre has begun to get kind of stale with the endless waves of war games. I not only hope that Titanfall 2 wins Game of the Year, I hope that this is the beginning of a new era of gaming.
