A shot in the dark: What can save modern military shooters?

GameZone's Tate Steinlage writes, "Every week I take a look at the top Xbox LIVE titles being consumed by the online community, and each week I see titles that are blasted for “innovation” soaring high at the top. So I ask: is this successful formula broken and in need of change, or are these titles just missing the heart of what games are supposed to bring us?" (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360)

I think they need a more realistic approach in the gameplay department with better mature story telling...I'm tired of that Hollywood guns blazing linear action vibe myself...Why not give the player choices that makes the plot differ/more control of how they wanna handle certain situations instead of just everything needs to be run and gun no questions asked..It's also time to get rid of the whole good vs bad guy concept..

I want proper squad commands with suppression fire and flanking tactics.

A few of my favourite Military themed games are Brothers in Arms, Rainbow 6 (yes I still love Vegas)and Full Spectrum Warrior.

I mean, its like its been made law you're not allowed to use your brain anymore in shooters. Run and gun seems to be the order of the day. Did I miss a meeting?

Well they don't really make games about modern warfare they make propaganda for one side of a global conflict, an FPS focused on the story of an insurgent group or an outfit like Hezbollah or the Naxalites would be interesting, Homefront and Far Cry 2 were a step in the right direction.
