I think First-Person Shooters have declined. There was a time where I'd stay up all night playing one but now they're just not so gamer focused but money focused.

But there are so many different types of FPS. My point in the article is that people are so quick to jump to the COD games as an example but Portal and Bioshock count too.

Awesome article. I do love a FPS (even though I'm not that good at them!)

I think FPS games will always have their place and some have changed over the years, but with big names focusing more on the online multi-player side it makes them lose appeal. If the game has a good story however, you don't always notice the format and just enjoy the game for what it is.

I agree. I think we should treat it more as the art style of the game and less as a genre.

Multiplayer FPS have declined too, no skill required these days. Red Orchestra and CSGO excluded.

Nice little article but it felt slightly too short. More exploration into the evolution of the genre and what that means would have been interesting. I have a personal love for on-rail shooters, great way to just sit back, relax and kill everything in sight.

I'm not a hardcore FPS fan, but I'll admit I spent a ridiculous amount of time with the Borderlands series. It relied less on reflexes and more on weapon stats, and also had silly humour. Love this series.
