Anybody Else Bored Of Shooters?

"We appear to be drowning in an endless, stifling sea of FPS and TPS titles, but it’s not just the sheer prevalence of shooters that grinds. A bigger problem is how deeply generic and mired in convention they have become – to the point of utter cliche."

Yes, I am. I want variety in the games that are released, but this generation is like over 80% shooters

bad shooters, yes. good shooters, never.

Try the Starhawk beta on PSN if you want something new & non-generic. Beta ends next week, game launches early May. Very addictive.

And its still a shooter.

Been dying for a space strategy title - that doesn't have unnecessary physics or that stacking thing that Starcraft does.

Homeworld. It has aged a little but if you want a top quality, space themed RTS that requires genuine thought then you cannot go wrong.

I still stand by my opinion that next to Total Annihilation (more real time anarchy perhaps) it's the best sci-fi themed RTS ever made (yes, including Starcraft).

The sequel is just as good.

I, personally, want more real time strategy and roleplaying games. I'd love to see a new Homeworld game.

I'm not adverse to shooters but more Bioshock Infinite and less modern war would be nice. Lets see some of that imagination developers. It's one thing everyone has afterall.

My sentiments exactly. I'm looking forward to BioShock Infinite and Borderlands 2 because I know they won't simply be a linear procession of mindless gunfights with nothing to distinguish themselves from any other FPS. Your CODs and Battlefields etc. are increasingly devoid of any real creative thinking.

I can't wait for Bioshock Infinite.

Godmars2901498d ago

Replying to above:

No offense to Homeworld, but I'd rater see something on a more arcade level. Something that's not real-time reliant in response time so I can sit back and watch. Something like Infinite Space on the DS.

I don't mind the few good, traditional shooters, but I can't stand the plethora of sub-par shooting games released trying to "cash-in" on the market, when those same developers probably would make more money if they worked on 1) a genre/series of games they're already good at developing and 2) something original instead adding to an already stagnant market.
