Five Things First-Person Shooters Can Do To Evolve Part 1

Omnigamer writes, "For the past console generation I have been subsisting mostly on games from the PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox era. I have under ten games for the ps3, and half of them I‘ve hardly touched. When I was asked to write an article concerning the five things first person shooters need to evolve, I had to ask myself, how has gaming evolved?" (BioShock: Infinite, Call of Duty: Black Ops, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

This guy didn't even mention a way to evolve the genre just picks 3 games and docks them.

The one thing that I personally want to see is full body control with the kinect cam. Like head tracking but where if you take one hand off the controller it comes off the gun and more stuff like that.

I think the genre as a whole Needs to move away from the ultra realism type and back to its sci-fi/absurd roots.

Playing games like crysis I see a lot of games/IP's trying to move toward that type of gameplay as far as arena shooters go. Halo/killzone mainly and I would bet the next call of duty will be something similar

They need to go back to basics, the control scheme for goldeneye on n64 was best. This 2 different analogue sticks to move (like in cod) doesn't allow u to manouver like how u could side step in goldeneye.
Best first person shooter ever made I reckon.

Goldeneye was awesome. I was amazed at how the enemies reacted to getting shot in the leg, arm, chest. The sound of the guns were unbelievable and the sound of the bullets hitting flesh was just crazy. Goldeneye made me feel like I was actually James Bond.
As far as the evolution of FPS games is concerned, I do t think there is much more to change regarding the story lines. They are basically all action movies. What needs changing is the gameplay. They are all essentially wack-a-mole games. Shoot the enemy soldiers until they are all dead. There are no consequences for your actions except dying but then you start over at the last checkpoint. KZ has a wonderful back story. Maybe one of these FPS games could have you switch between both sides to see what life is like on the other side. In war, the soldiers we are fighting against are not all bad guys. All Quiet on the Western Front is a great novel that shows WWII from the perspective of some young German soldiers.. Maybe games can learn from books like these.
