definitely agree with #'s 1, 2, 4, 8 but the rest seem a little off base.

Lmao funny article I love #2. It is true some games you're about to die and you eat a banana or something and you're at full health. Or like in Far Cry 2 when you're about to die you drink a water bottle and you're at full health.

super soldiers are a little over done.

Volvobug3623d ago

how so? there's barely any games with a "super" soldier in them.

The Matrix3623d ago

Just to name a few off the top of my head: Masterchief is a super soldier, turok, marcus feenix, Nathan hale (he has chimeran in him) and Solid Snake. I don't mind super solidiers. I'd rather play as a [email protected]$$ than some ordinary guy.

dont forget GeOW is a squad based game.

Marcus Feenix is not a super soldier, hes more like a super squad leader that can form a killer team out of any group he joins.
