Frontlines dev denies FPS fatigue

Videogamer writes:

"The art director on upcoming shooter Frontlines: Fuel of War has denied that gamers are currently suffering from FPS fatigue.

Luis Cataldi, art director at Frontlines developer Kaos Studios, believes the high number of critically acclaimed first-person shooter games that have come out in 2007, like Halo 3, Call of Duty 4 and BioShock, has instead "created more of an appetite".

Speaking at a hands-on even for Frontlines, which depicts a near future world where the West is fighting the East over the Earth's last reserves of oil, Cataldi told that while there is the "opportunity" for FPS fatigue to be true, the opposite is in fact happening."

I am... I'm sick of them. I'm not buying anymore until Killzone 2 and Resistance. Maybe not even Killzone 2 if it comes out in the next 3 to 4 months. I want a break from them. A big one. I'm so tired of playing as a gun, flipping switches and going from point A to B. FPS's need a huge reinvention. They need to be more expansive and not so close quarters. They need to start offering us more to do.

I know what you mean. Can't wait for the RPGs and platformers to come out.

Folklore, Ratchet and others will keep me going for a while.

I know that I'm sick of FPSs. I couldn't even finish Bioshock just because it felt so 'meh' to me after so many FPSs. I loved CoD4 though, which says a lot about the quality of it.

After R6 Vegas, Halo, Call of Duty, Orange Box and others... I'm burned out. I went back to Final Fantasy IX and XII, Suikoden Tactics and NBA 2K8... need some more rpg's...

I'll buy killzone 2 and resistance 2. That's it until Q3 2009.

oh and, Battlefield BC, Far Cry 2 and probably a few more.

But FPS is my favourite genre, so : )
