As exciting as it is to venture through nature’s toughest terrains in a high-octane action-adventure title or exploring uncharted territories in open-world RPGs, nothing quite thrills like immersing yourself in a competitive multiplayer match.

Suspending time and disbelief

LOW The garbage story

WTF Spartans engaging in poorly directed hand-to-hand fisticuffs.
