I'm finding myself getting confused about new games more than before. The mix of single player and co-op here, and the focus on multiplayer there, is making me doubt whether a game has any single player, or whether what..
Anyway to keep it short and sweet, I read a bit about these two games and watched a couple of trailers, and I'm not sure what gameplay experience each one has.
- Do they have single player levels/worlds, in a classic story-driven sense, which can also be played in co-op (more than one player) like Borderlands?
- Or are they designed around co-op/multiplayer, which means the singleplayer is a shitty Brink-like pack of multiplayer maps with bots?
- Or do they have two or three sets of "modes," one designed for a single player, one for co-op and one for competitive multiplayer, like Call of Duty?
If I buy Payday 2 off Steam right now, what are my options for modes?
Anyone else get confused and irritated by these three modes getting mixed and their lines blurred in new games? Especially when there's a token singleplayer mode that turns out to be "not the best way to play the game"? I still remember the day I bought Battlefield 2 in 2006, only to fire it up and find that it does not have a cinematic single player experience like Call of Duty 2, but only online shooting. It pissed me off, but soon thereafter Battlefield became my favorite online FPS.
I'm just saying that shit needs to be clearer so a guy knows what the hell he's buying.
