Do Modern Shooters Take Themselves Too Seriously?

Kotaku - Despite my aversion to shooters—god, there's too many of them—Overstrike, with its playful, comical tone and its cartoon aesthetic caught my eye. The approach felt like something fresh. But we don't have Overstrike anymore, no, instead we have Fuse. Compare the two trailers for the games and you see see a world of a difference in approach. Where did all the color go? The humor? Why so ‘realistic'? It's almost like the skeptical authority figure in the first trailer got his way and replaced the team of scoundrels because they weren't right for the job. Now Fuse looks like Another Shooter. Hooray?
