I mean I love shooters, but damn... Can I get a quality RPG every once in a while. Or even a quality action/adventure game.

We need diversity, people.

it seems the majority of the games I've bought this gen have been shooter based, still waiting for the localization of WKC and Demon's Soul.

I agree with you both, I am not a fond person of FPS; but I will say that the ones that have been coming out surely makes one who does not like them take a small peak at what's in store in the game. One example being KZ2.

I'm also waiting on White Knight Chronicles as well as Demon's Souls; but I've also been finding some fun in Cross-Edge, Folksouls/folklore, Disgaea 3 hopefully and then the rest. Right now I'd say my sights are set more so on Demon's Souls than anything else as it reminds me quite a bit of Monster Hunter.

Thanks to Halo making console FPS games viable, we have an onslaught of mediocre FPS games except for a good 4-5 titles. Its gotten so bad other genres are starting to be made in first person. We need more RPG Action adventure or even TPS. or a GOOD TPS i should say

Motion controls and Casual games, and I stay far away from both. Hey, RememberThe357 for a good action adventure like games I would highly recommend the Ratchet and Clank or Uncharted series, but beyond those and a few upcoming games there is a lack of "quality" adventure games and a complete lack of decent rpg's.

Rainstorm814327d ago

It seems Motion controls and Casual games are starting to climb up that list as well. But we do need more Quality RPG and Adventure games not the flood of FPS and Casual games.

No, HALO:CE was a breakout it. Halo 3 is a SEQUEL to that breakout hit.

Another ignorant author.
