    Default Buy Battlefield 4 now or save up for Titan Fall?

    I am a PC gamer btw.

    I need a game that will improve my reaction time (Since I play sports casually) and I want to have fun doing it. I am guessing FPS are that type of reaction time training genre.

    So which one should I get in your opinion?

    playing multiplayer starcraft 2 or dota would probably also help with that.

    BF4 doesn't rely on reaction time all that much in comparison to other FPS's. If you want an FPS that does, then you'd be better off going for a game like Counter-Strike (Where you also need to aim for the head for any chance of a kill)

    Something that some people find helps them is a site called Aim400kg - It's a reflex/accuracy training flash game.

    Ah ok thanks for that.

    Is the logitech g100s helpful for RTS and FPS games?

    Ok Aim400kg loads so slow!!!!

    Man I was seriously going to post the same thing. OP wants more of a twitch-arcade FPS like CS, Urban Terror, Unreal Tournament, or Call of Duty. BF4 is a great game but it's definitely quite tactical and campy.

    Titanfall, in my opinion.

    Reaction time is still important in BF4.
    It just isn't a twitch based game. Meaning the muscle memory(that won't transfer to sports) isn't as important.

    In my opinion, BF4's gameplay would be much closer to simulating sports training.

    I will also agree with with postrook. RTS and MOBAs are very reliant on not just reaction but proper reaction.

    So...
    If you are wanting to improve your mind's speed, play something more strategic.
    If you want to improve muscle memory (that won't transfer) play a twitch based shooter.

    So you recommend BF4 then right?

    I wouldn't recommend BF4 because it's nearly unplayable and buggy as hell. Maybe they have fixed it but honestly I haven't heard anything and the last time they rolled out a tiny fix which didn't really address the issues was huge news.
    Also, BF4 is more of vehicular combat.

    If you want a twitch shooter go with Counter-Strike or Quake.

    P.S Dota 2 is great like everyone else here says. You never know when you will encounter an enemy in fog and the one who reacts faster will control the situation if you have to the means. The downside is that you will probably have 10 bad games and 2-3 good games.

    Dota 2 is sort of hard to play.

    It's not exactly hard to play. It's the shitty people that make it hard. I would only recommend it for new people if you can get 4 other friends to play with you together and have at least 1 guy who knows what to do.

    Or find a coach to coach your games as you play.

    I am guessing the verdict is to save up for Tital Fall?

    Yes.
