Titanfall 2 (FPS PC Game 2016)

So after being disappointed with BF1, I bought this game during the winter sale to see if my gaming days could be salvaged. Unfortunately no good news is coming from that section as my ability to have fun with PC gaming seems to be going downhill.

The single-player campaign was quite good but a bit short. I do like killing AI vs. going against real peeps. The multiplayer is OK but it just isn't fun. This is because of 2 reasons: The first is that you get matched with some elite folks who play a lot so they all have mad skills and wipe the floor with you. I have yet to be randomly matched with other mid-range players, so dying has become a part of life. The second reason is that everyone moves way too fast. I know I'm getting older and my reaction time is totally not what it used to be but holy shit, all of the other pilots are jumpy little gummy bears who have no problem spinning in mid-air and tagging you. I can't tell you how many times I've been aced from the rear...I hear nothing, see nothing, and I just die. Not sure why I can't be on the other side of that. I have rarely ever gotten the jump on anyone.

One part of buying this game was that the original Titanfall had a PvE Coop mode, but this one doesn't have one or at least a map of this sort hasn't been released yet; frustrating since the only option is to wait in line for a match just to get pwned by way better players while waiting for a DLC.
