I’m on a big FPS binge at the moment. It’s a genre I really enjoy but am not all that great at, and it makes me want to focus on them and improve. This is especially true due to the fact that I always played games on console until about a year ago, which means I’m also learning to use a keyboard and mouse as much as possible too. It’s a tough transition, but I’m enjoying the challenge a fair bit. As a result of this current fascination, I’ve been looking at all kinds of FPS games to practice in.
One of the most intriguing FPS games of this year, and possibly just games full stop, is Quantum League. Quantum League is an FPS gamer that pits players against one another in 1v1 or 2v2 matches. You need to think tactically if you want to win, but having twitch reflexes is going to help a lot too. The thing that makes it so intriguing though is that you do all of that within a time loop.
What that means, is that you’ll be playing through the same fragment of time multiple times. You get to go through, take a shot at your opponent, then start again and watch as your previous version does exactly what you did. This time around you need to try and support them, and figure out what your opponent is going to do as they do the same. It makes for matches that feels like a blisteringly fast game of chess, and while it’s a little hard to wrap your head around at first, it also happens to be one of the most satisfying PvP games to come out on top in.
