The multiplayer aspect of these games is more a social experience than anything. The more a player is involved in a certain game, the more people they meet during such games and more kind of uniform "teams" are formed. It can really be enjoyable if a fun team is formed by several people with a similar skill level and general social interest and liking of each other. That is where these games hit their sweet spot. It turns these games into an immersive experience as you are now working with a group of people that you generally like to accomplish a goal (victory) together.

Different multiplayer games draw a different kind of crowd. For my money, the Halo, Battlefield (and presumably Battlefront) games put the emphasis on teamwork. The maps are more immersive and the more diverse your team the better chances you are to have an enjoyable experience. This kind of gameplay lends itself to, dare I say, a more mature gamer. If you go Lone Wolf in these games, you will fail. They just aren't designed for the Rambo types.

The Call of Duty games seem to draw out more of the younger "stat" hounds. It just isn't as fun, and the games reward solo statistics over team play. To each his own.

Those trees look gorgeous.

I may have to upgrade just for this game. I loved Battlefront 2 with a passion; i used to play that sucker all the time. True story, I have a decent collection of Clone Trooper figures arrayed in different assault teams displayed in my house (less so than in the past, but with more Thor now) simply because of this franchise. So it makes me sad that this iteration will not involve any prequel material. Leading a Clone army from Geonosis to Hoth was awesome.

Still, this game looks amazing.

Here's more Star Wars Battlefront:



I don't know what Vader and full-on Jedi Luke are doing there, but people seem excited about it.

I saw the FFVII Remake trailer yesterday. I'd been wondering when Square-Enix would get around to remaking that game.

I beat it back in the day, but I just don't think I'll be able to justify giving up the 60+ hours (or whatever it was) to trudge through it again.

I would've rather them make a new game but in the classic sense. The post Final Fantasy 7 games are pretty bad.

This isn't a trailer, but it is where I put the other E3 stuff, so I'm sticking it here:



I thought I'd already posted it, but I couldn't find it.

It's been a while since I've seen a live-action trailer for a video game:
