Gamer Gossip: PAX East 2013, and Battlefield 4. Are FPS games becoming redundant?

A few members of The Koalition team spent their time at PAX East last weekend. Although they had a lot of fun, it seems like they may have been disappointed with an anticipated game coming out this year! Moreover, are FPS games becoming redundant? With the new reveal of Battlefield 4, it’s easy to think so. However, not all FPS games are the same! Check out the video above to find out more!

LOL!

OT: Awesome weekly recap ElectroJade. Loved what you said about BF4. It looks pretty, but doesn't do much gameplaywise to deviate from the FPS norm.

I think so. I seriously don't think we need any more first person shooters, at all, every single one is exactly the same.
LOGICWINS  +   631d ago
Yeah, I could do with more third person action games though. Watch Dogs and Second Sun look INCREDIBLE!

Becoming? Where have you been? Shooters have been redundant for years.

I've had this feeling for years, though I still play them.
At least in Battlefield I don't feel like I'm doing the same thing every match.

In CoD, once I know the maps its the same every time.

I just want the FPS craze to end by next gen
PS4isKing_82  +   631d ago
Amen to that brother. It's time for jrpgs, platformers and other great genres to come back and flourish like they did before this gen.

I actually stopped playing FPS games since febuary started, buying disgea next week and a couple of JRPGs

I have a good feeling nex gen will be a time of hybrids. Fps games most likely won't die because of the precision in pvp multiplayer.

It has nothing to do with being fps, it's the repetition of settings and the typical cinematic style campaigns where 90% of the time you're watching a movie basically.

Ha! CoD has made a career out of people paying full price for the same game they played last year. We can hope BF doesn't go that route but I wouldn't bet on it, with EA being involved. In a world where PC gamers claim they're playing a totally different game, even though anyone who ever bought and played an HD collection knows they aren't, upgrading the graphics but keeping the same gameplay will increasingly be the norm. I don't think the FPS genre is becoming redundant necessarily, but developers need to stretch their creative legs instead of copying what sold well the year before. The industry is perpetuating this though. I see all these perfect reviews for Bioshock: Infinite, yet everyone I know personally who is playing it says it's good but not all that amazing. I hope the gaming industry doesn't have to collapse again before it wakes up.

I stopped fully investing in the CoD franchise after Black Ops, then I picked up BF3. So I will be playing the BF franchise which I probably will give up on and also on FPS almost entirely. Just played out for those who have been in it for so long, well me anyways (not for those who are sold out fans). To me it's similar to Madden, in that I havent bought a Madden game since 2002. Eventually FPS will phase out of my life too. Lol. I would love for BF4's single player campaign to be way better than BF3 which the developers know is lacking.

Maybe FPS need a shift. Maybe it is getting rid of the traditional multiplayer and focusing on "single" player campaigns that are multi/single player/co-op hybrids. I think this would work if the game, any FPS, like CoD or BF would create open world environments and get rid of some if not all of the rails. I think that could work, at least in concept. Translating it to gameplay may be another story.
