I really hope there are less shooters next generation, and more variety

It's true, but I don't mind first person games in general. I liked mirrors edge, though it was a bit rough. Skyrim of course, though it could use a combat system a bit closer to demon souls. Dark messiah, umm other games. There's not as many as there are shooters. In any case first person games damn well better have a better fov. Third person games should as well.

I'm playing kingdom of amalur right now and it's narrow fov hides how beautiful the world is.

I know this probably wont happen but I wish next generation consoles supported triple panels (eyefinitiy / nvidia surround) like PC gaming currently does. Forza and GT do on the consoles but it takes 3 consoles and 3 copies of the game.

Triple panels is insane and people are so much easier to spot camping in FPS games on triple panel setups. It honestly levels the playing field. With racing games it really adds a whole other level of immersion (well it does for every game that supports it) and makes it easier to corner.

That is what I want most from next gen consoles as far as viewing perspective with displays go.

Pic included of my triples.
Seriously gaming on this setup is just amazing and so addicting.

If more people would buy games like rayman, prince of persia, and things like that then we would. The games go where the money goes. It's all up to the consumer.
Buy the games you want to see more of.

They broke PoP though :P

I bought the awesome ones because I wanted to see more of them... then they went and crapped all over the series.

U say that, but if 80% of games on the market are shooters then gamers hardly have a choice.

Also im buying Xenoblade Chronicles, Ni no Kuni, Tales of Graces f. RPGs make more of them.

Capt-FuzzyPants2298d ago

I was about to say the same thing. Hopefully there are more JRPG's in the same way there were a ton of greats in the 90's. I really hope companies like Level 5 start making more games like Dark Cloud. Hopefully Square starts to pump out games year after year again. And maybe that will inspire all of these developers making these fps games (which end up all being the same thing) to make new and innovative games.

I hope theres still plenty of first person games. Can we just lose the shooter part. It's called innovation and it's not limited to a 3rd person or fixed camera view :)

Playing Killzone 2 with its 45 degree FOV makes me laugh. Let's hope they can keep those FOVs at at least 75 for next gen games.

Metroid Prime Next on the Nintendo Wii U console will be the true showcase of what next generation capability can do for the 1st person shooter. Locked in at 60 frames per second at true 1080p with next generation graphics followed up by true future proof tech. With a holy gaming box such as the Nintendo Wii U backed up with the newest innovative controller in the business today. Not only Metroid, but other shooters on the Nintendo Wii U will stand heads and shoulders above the crowd.

All of that will be only possible on the Nintendo Wii U console.

Rated E For Everyone

What I like about this guy is that he doesn't see the need to hate on other platforms just because he's in love with Nintendo. . .unlike his counterpart DarkSniper who just simply hates everything that isn't SONY.
Truth time: if he'd said all those things about sony, he'd have a heck of alot more agrees.

Shok2298d ago

True. He may be rabid about Nintendo but at least he doesn't bash the competition.

The Sony statement was too true. His agrees and disagrees would be switched.

xtreampro2298d ago

I don't know how long you've been on this site but he doesn't sound like DarkSniper since his literacy skills are much weaker and his comment sounds like a typical OpenZone comment.

Arksine2298d ago (Edited 2298d ago )

You say you like that he didn't say anything about why in the hell did you bring them up? Trying to start a wildfire?

Paballo2298d ago
