Often with over the shoulder shooters and FPS action fests we find ourselves driving forward a soulless character, find ourselves falling prey to verbal assaults from pre-pubescant little shits who have no idea what war truly means to those it touches, soldiers, citizens, families of soldiers, they don't see a history to a character and therefore grow up socially inept like an uncaring vessel of pent up testosterone but thanks to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier, it looks like these socially inept troglodytes finally get to tap in to a person behind the gun.

It also drops a huge hint that working together is the only way to make your way through this game and I think that applies to the single player mode as well as the multiplayer aspect of the game.

We need more trailers like this one, games like this have lost characterisation in a big way and it's great to see that Ubisoft are making amends and taking a step forward to giving us characters that we still might not be able to relate to but at least they have a story to tell.

... and I don't have to make up stories for them anymore, I also made stories up for the people I killed... oh the number of orphans I created for the good of my country!!! :(
