Why The Gaming Industry Needs More FPS

The contribution of FPS games to the gaming industry is unappreciated by some of the hardcore gamers. (Culture, Industry)

No no no no no no no no no we do not need anymore fps on top of the shitty ones that already come out if any thing this article should be called "the rise and eventual fall of first person shooters" the continuation of annual shooters has had a double edge effect to where the popularity of games has gotten more mainstream than before (in which is good) but the lack of real innovation has hindered the genre as bland soulless pieces of code and don't get me wrong I loved halo and mw when it first came out but when I see the predecessors of the franchise looking and playing a lot the first games...that's when we have to huddle up and call an audible. i have a friend that buys COD each year plays them for 2 weeks tops and ends up calling the game trash... Why do u buy them bro? why within 48 hrs u sware by the blood of Christ that this is the greatest thing u ever touch? Why on earth would u continue 2 feed the hand that bites u constantly ? Lunacy would be my answer but some would just say he's being American /endrant (sorry for the punctuation laying on my back typin on a smartphone half sleep) also didn't read the article but who does that anywayz

I want a kinet FPS that is set in maps the size of a small warehouse designed like a maze. I want all the movements to be 1:1 so one foot step equals one footstep. Full body registration and hit detection. Real body damage so if you get shot the leg your character limps around and moves slower. Shot in the arm you have trouble with melee and aiming.
I want real ammo consumption so if you have 12 rounds loaded shoot 8 times and you reload that gun you lose that 4 rounds or its is registered in the mag. I want real world shooting accuracies so no constant headshots with a 9mm beretta hand gun 200 yards away.
I want a full play area so I could best and ing or ducking and in that play area I am represented so if you walk in to a room and dont properly clear it i can come out of the corner or from being ducked down and stab you or shoot you.

So you want a Kinnect shooter that is basically the movie Gamer. Instead, this is what Microsoft came up with:

Spoiler... This is why you need a controller...


This is off screen footage of Kinnect Paintball from GamesCon 2010.

As funny as those videos are the reality is that was a launch title with people that never played anything like that before trying for the first time.

I actually played it and it you found people that could really play it was OK.
Here someone with a little more control.


Now the the 360 wasnt powerful enough to really let devs go wild with kinect but the things they did laid some excellent ground work. Even this little with the shooting mechanics of the gunsmith section Ghost recon.... OMG that would increase this little game by 400%. The only thing they need to do is get the movement just right. There are several solutions that they have had but finding the right combination or a new solution. Grasping kinect for real at this point may just beyond you, you have been fed so much false stuff and you just actually want to stay ignorant to reality. you may like a world were kinect can do nothing right and has no potential better than the real world.

the game I would like to see I am sure they can do it, i have played it just in different parts all over the place and through different games.

Body damage would actually be nice imagine getting shot in the stomach only to slow down your movement speed or your arm to where you can't carry your primary proper nemore .... I remember hideo kojima wanted to use this feature in mgs 2 but he said that the tech wasn't there at the time... Maybe in fps they could actually have a cover system to the point where it's easy to use and not a chore...leaning is cool but I've never seen that done on a console tbh I think it's too late... A blind firing system would be killer just stick your gun out and blast away ... Or perhaps adding a body to the charactor when you look down u see everything gun clothes shoes ...I'm just saying some of the big IPs could really use a touch of realism just to spruce up there stale games.
