Titanfall 2 Developer Respawn Prefers Gameplay Over Graphics
While Titanfall 2 may not have sold as much as the company expected. It is still a great game and it is unfortunate that it is being overshadowed by other great AAA titles. Why is it such a great game? Because the developers have tried to optimize it for the perfect gameplay instead of giving gamers enhanced graphics.
While 4K seems to be all the rage these days it does come at a cost. Users often have to face capped FPS and lower graphical settings when it comes to consoles. Running the game at 4K with medium setting might seem to be great for some people. Other people will appreciate higher graphics settings and higher FPS as compared to higher resolution.
Titanfall 2 is one such game. The developers have tried their best to give gamers a great gameplay experience and have not gone for the 4K hype. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella explained:
“It’s just that we focus on it. We make decisions based on it. Our animations are interruptible by movement. Some games have animations that you have to wait for them to finish before the next movement that you’re doing. So the movement feels sluggish and sloppy. On screen, to somebody who’s watching you play, they might think that looks slightly better. But it doesn’t feel right. It feels like you’re playing in molasses”.
While some people might think otherwise I think that the Titanfall 2 dev is right. There are many people that will appreciate a great game that simply works instead of flashy gimmicks. He continues on:
“It doesn’t matter if it’s in first person. The Star Wars game is a third-person action game. It’s going to be more about the character and their experiences. You can see them and identify with them a little differently than you can in a first-person game where it’s all about seeing it through your own eyes. But it still has to be about feel and fun”.
