Reader Discussion: Do You Use The New Photo Modes?

by Kyle Hilliard on Oct 16, 2014 at 03:46 PM

Following Infamous Second Son’s lead, many games are incorporating a mode specifically for players to take photos. Do you use it?

I haven’t shared any photos using the tool in Infamous Second Son or The Last of Us Remastered, and I probably won't in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor either, but I love that it exists. I use it as a way to pause the game and fully absorb the environment or scene. I like pausing the game and just getting a chance to take a closer look at everything. Like I said, though, I don’t think I’ve ever actually saved a photo, or shared one. I ‘ll leave that to the professionals (or the very talented).

How about you? Do you like the photo modes? Do you use them for their intended purposes?
