I think they're fine. I get plenty of enjoyment out of the genre, and as long as games like Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite etc. keep getting released, there is a good balance between story-driven and multiplayer-driven experiences. People (snotty, pretentious gamers) need to stop bitching.

Maybe it's cuz I'm easter culture appeals to me more than western. I can still balance my shooters with my ARPGs/fighters(KH/Tekken), but something about creating a feriocious combo on your opponent makes gets me excited. Probably from watching power rangers instead of GiJoe80s. Yup. Must be it. Ninjas/Martial artists are cooler to me than army men.

The best FPS to be released this year is ten years old.

So..you're getting MW3 because it's the "cool" thing to do and you are judging BF3 just on how BF2 was,they are years apart.

Secondly, Don't make me sound off the Grammar Nazi Alarm! It is dangerous for you to post a comment with so many spelling errors. They might just find you.

I agree with FatOldMan.

Battlefield 3 is the true hipster choice.

(Also, from what I've played in the BF3 alpha, BF3 doesn't really play like BF2.)

Quite frankly... I'm growing tired of FPS games. I think the industry is burning me out on the first person point of view. I like to see who I'm playing as sometimes.

Lately, I've been playing Infamous 2, GTA IV, Skate 3 and Uncharted 2. I'm starting to really love the third person view in these games and now when I play first person shooters, it seems too up in your face and the animations don't look right to me.

That's interesting. You think the variety in those games you've been playing, have given you a better appreciation for different genres other than FPS?
