Prey: The Way Modern FPS Could Have Been

Chillopedia | Games like Battlefield have completely revolutionized the first-person shooter genre in recent years. Innovations like regenerating health and realistic weapon models have resulted in a marked change in the nature of FPS games, as well as gaming in general. (Culture, Prey)

Let Battlefield be the example of how FPS's should be.

How about no. Battlefield is just as generic as COD and serves as a bad example.

prey had more creativity in the first 2 hours than entire library of cod and bf combined

i love battlefield series, its just been the same since 1942, albiet refined and more excellent, still...the same

prey is a glorious game, and, at least on pc it looks amazing

You wont be disappointed (considering it probably costs a WHOLE $2 now).

Pros: Great Story. Great Characters. Fantastic soundtrack (very, very good). Cool weapons. Puzzles. Quite a decent length.

Cons: Gameplay could have been tighter (still good).

Another con, which doesn't really detract from Prey's awesomeness is that if you get headaches when playing upside-down, you are in for a real treat with Prey.

It has one of the best stories in an FPS this gen. Among my favourites Bioshock and The Darkness.

Prey was a great game, its a shame that they are abandoning its gameplay in 2.
consoles have really screwed the world..

I know right? it's not like consoles existed before this generation or anything /sarcasm

Prey along with Clive Barkers Jericho were two refreshing yet underappreciated and undersold games that came out this generation that became some of my favorite games in terms of creativity. When news broke that Prey 2 wouldnt continue the story of 1 I was severely disappointed but then I heard news that Tommy and the universe would play a part. I would have loved to just keep going with the whole native american shamanic spirit trip mixed with aliens of another galaxy etc. It would have been cool if you got more powers and had to fight some greater evil. It could have really been a true hero game, one of the next great Doom scenarios instead of Hell this would have been a way to evovle gamers thinking. It could have been a special game... Take some acid or shrooms, DMT, ayahuasca, watever gets you going and play the world of games like Myst (Uru included) and if they somehow managed to keep that native american feel and enhanced it with spirit trips, etc.... man, my PREY 2 is good enough for me.
