Shooter Special Part 1: Lower Your Weapons

D+PAD Writes:

Games thrive on shooting, and gamers love shooting stuff; this is a fact right? Well, yes, it’s undeniable that ever since the first few pixels fired up the screen in Space Invaders, the act of shooting has played a massive role in the evolution of videogames as an artform and also in popularising it as a past time. But is all the gun-play being to grow a little stale?

In a (possibly rather telling) coincidence, two D+PAD contributors – Simeon Paskell and Dave Stuart – independently decided to take a look at this very idea, each taking a very personal look at their relationship with shooters and how they feel currently feel about the videogame shooter, which has – thanks to the likes of Call of Duty and Halo – become such an all-devouring part of our beloved industry. (Call of Duty, Dear Esther, Doom, Gone Home, L.A. Noire, PC, PS3, Uncharted Trilogy, Xbox 360)
