originality is what makes games unique and not generic

i agree that sometimes a good game dosent need any original idea's(ahem rage)but sometimes its the only thing that makes a game so good

And yet games full or original ideas can be just bad games. In a way, he's right. Originality is nice, it's just not necessary.

I think its Killzone fans who are disagreeing.

Maybe you should buy a Helghast helmet and play some Killzone 3 : )

This game isn't just a port it's a re-imagining of the game, that's what makes me so excited.

A-friggin-men, modern military shooters are an absolute bore.
