Bulletstorm will put the fun back into FPS. At least thats what the developers, People Can Fly, are saying. What does that mean though? Is the FPS genre not fun anymore? Has it dried up? We Got This Covered answers the question.
What do you guys think? Is the FPS genre dead? Does it need to be revived?
I think there's hope in Bulletstorm and COD needs to die a lonely and shameful death. But Bulletstorm hasn't proven itself yet
yep, too many shooters try to be "omg realistic" and others are too darn boring and try nothing to be fun. This is why I have hope in this and Duke Nukem Forever. It's like fun fps were left in last gen. games like Timesplitters are the true fun fps, just an example. But I do like Counter Stike though, that's an exception fps Games are way too serious, and that changes next year
Bulletstorm looks totally legit
far from dead, we've always had decent FPS games with the likes of Half Life and Halo, I just dont know if bulletstorm will be as good
Hm... well I think FPS isn't dead, it's just being monopolized by the Call of Duty franchise. I would like a new type of FPS, Call of Duty gets old...
Old school FPS are the new FPS. Can't wait for the FPS renaissance. Bulletstorm Duke Nukem Forver Rage
DNF is the best
Can't wait.. Getting the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm to play Gears of War 3 beta aswell :)
FPS cant be fun anymore there too serious the only one that was ever "fun" was timesplitters and that series is frozen so to speak right now. Crytek can make another but I doubt bulletstorm will get the same kind of fun elements TS had.
I can't wait!
borderlands was not a standard realism driven FPS and it was great! played thru it and all the dlc multiple times with many different friends. sad to see the dlc end but looking forward to the next game. realism war based FPS isnt going anywhere. there is 6+ of them in development right now. just because this author thinks the FPS genre is stale does not mean it is. when the yearly glitchfest COD game is released every year, it still sells billions. will bulletstorm be able to ween these players off the tit that is COD? time will tell. im going to guess it will not. real question is, can COD franchise actually innovate and advance the genre and release a stable game this next time around? if they can, they may get my money too.
I MISS THE COMFORT IN BEING SAD
This looks intense as hell
Agreed,hahah timeplitters would really be the knight in shining armour though, when it came down to it. Hopefully Crytek have made the deal now and are carefully picking up the peices...ready to grab our attention and blow us away learly next year... Say true about the no-more bullet sponge. I do think that some games let you take a little too much...but CoD games are so frustrating in this department. It turns into a game of reaction time, rather than dodging, aiming, and generally dancing about using your gun to a satisfying degree. You don't actally get to shoo that much on CoD games do you? Just a well chosen squeeze then you run about looking for the next target. I think Bulletstorm will be mad...just look at the killscroe animations..looks so nex gen. Makes the Cod '+50' look out of date.
Bulletstorm looks incredible, cant wait to get my hands on it
