inFamous and Titanfall – Mediocrity overlooked?

Titanfall and inFamous have seen their fair share of praise and critical acclaim but both have glaring faults which have been overlooked. This is of course due to a drought in gaming goodness for the supposed ‘next-gen’ consoles. It’s been a long, cold, dry spell if you’re an Xbox One or PS4 owner.

Hell, if someone did this to me it would hurt one million times more than a broken heart. I’d rather someone take my soul than my consoles, poor guy.
