Community Voice: Not all FPSes Have to Mimic Call of Duty, Do They?

Eric of VividGamer.com Writes:

"There's no doubt Call of Duty is an extremely popular shooter, but does that mean that other shooters need to emulate the COD formula in order to be successful? Personally I don't want other titles to mimic Call of Duty like other popular FPS titles have already, but we want to hear from you. Do you want more Call of Duty features in other shooters or do you want different experiences from every FPS title you play?" (Call of Duty Series, Halo 4, Killzone 3 Multiplayer, PC, PS3, Resistance Series, Xbox 360)

The difficulty lies in the fact that publishers see all the money that CoD has made for Activision and wants their developers to mimic that approach to bring in the money...but it doesn't work that way.

Just as MMOs crashed and burned trying to copy WoW, FPSs will not find an audience being a CoD clone. Hopefully a studio will be resolute and believe in a game they're making to force publishers to allow it, and it finds success.

Edit: Forgot to add in the fact that games are so expensive to make, that publishers see the CoD template as a safe bet to recoop money.

that's true, all the money that Call of Duty gets makes it harder for publishers to not copy it. That said I don't want to see next gen shooters be a one shooter generation of all Call of Duty clones.

if it's a straight GI Joe cookie cutter military shooter like COD I either pass altogether or wait for it to hit the bargain bin and may pick it up as a after thought just to have in my collection.

I prefer shooters like The Darkness & Bioshock or even a FPS RPG like Elder Scrolls or Deus EX.
