Bored Of Headshots? Try These Games

There are two kinds of gamers at the moment: gamers who’re waiting for Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to come out, and gamers who’re waiting for the first group to shut up about Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 coming out. Well, if you’re one of the latter, you know there’s more to life than headshots. Here are a few dates for your calendar which mark the release of awesome games with very little shooting at all in them. If you’re in the first group, though, you’ve still got some time to kill before November- and those thumbs aren’t going to exercise themselves. (Assassin's Creed III, FIFA 13, Just Dance 4, Nintendo DS, PC, Pokemon Black and White 2, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

As a PS3 gamer, it's never hard to find good games that are different from the average shooter. If your having a hard time finding interesting games, then maybe the problem is your console, not a lack of innovation in the industry.

Xbox = Shooter games, 3rd party, kinect

PS3 = Just as many Shooter games, 3rd party, PS Move, MONTHLY 1st party EXCLUSIVES, AND Jrpg's, innovative games (like Soundshapes, Flower, Journey, Tokyo Jungle), Games that let you create (LBP, LBP 2, Infamous 2, LBP karting, Soundshapes, Mod Nation, many more) and so many variety of games.

Not trolling, but if u want a fresh experience instead of just shooters, PS3 (and maybe in a few months, the Wii U) is the place to go. But Xbox has abandoned us by focusing on Halo/Gears/Kinect trio and it's making me sick.

If u disagree, please feel free to debate. If not, then keep on hating, haters.

The 360 actually has more exclusives than the PS3. More retail, more arcade, more indie, and more DLC. 360 also has JRPG's, many of which aren't on the PS3.

"LBP, LBP 2, Infamous 2, LBP karting, Soundshapes, Mod Nation, many more" And you guys call the 360 casual :D

Also most of the PS3's top 20 are multiplatform games with COD at number 1. Top 20 for each console share the same amount of exclusives.

"but if u want a fresh experience instead of just shooters" Because Playstation All Stars Battle Royale is soooooo original.

What a terrible article, you call half those games "recommendations?"

Here, let me save you the trouble of rewriting the whole thing:

Infamous 1 and 2
Assassin's Creed 3
Mario Galaxy 2
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Ratchet & Clank: CiT
Marvel VS Capcom Origins
Dragon's Dogma
Gran Turismo 5

as an old school gamer who grew up on the NES and Genesis before moving on to PC gaming, I don't always go for FPS. I used to love FPS after playing the first MOH, and the early COD series, because of the "story". but nowadays, it's a mix of shooters, RPGs, platforming, adventure, puzzle, and yes even the casual games.
