Yea its an opinion really. I feel the same way, they aren't my favorite. If anything, my like for them has sunk a little because everyone wants to follow the route of Call of Duty. Even Killzone and Resistance whether people want to believe it or not. I still like these games, but they can be sooooo much better if they were actually different and unique. I really wanna try the new Operation Flashpoint game, it looks good.

Yep, Killzone 3 has several CoD influences and so does Resistance 2. Killzone 2 and Resistance were good because they were their own games and didn't implement needless features into their games.

But first person shooters in general aren't "The Best Games Ever." The reson why FPS sell so well is because of it's longevity. Most people get FPS for playing online and for single player well that's mainly be developers insist on making crappy single player experiences so now it's almost expected that the Single PLayer portion of a FPS will be bad so people just antcipate the Multiplayer side instead.

Now what's killing FPS is that nobody is innovating or staying unqiue. Everyone is taking unecessary elements form other games and puting it in their own game because they believe that's what consumers like. Killstreaks is not a must have, but yet you have TEAM based games like Killzone 3 adding it in because they think it will make their game more attractive. I've heard that Crysis 2 is a complete CoD knock off. How come the developers didn't just make their game for the fans of Killzone 2, Resistance 1, and Crysis 1? For their sequals they impemented CoD stuff and have nothing to show for it. Their sales didn't skyrocket or anything. It just seems like they only managed to piss of their fansbase, you know the only ones that actually give a crap about their games. I asked my friend who plays Call of Duty to buy Killzone 3 since it plays like it and guess what he said. "I'm not gonna buy even if it plays like CoD because I'm NOT a FAN of the FRANCHISE." Same goes for me. I will not buy a Halo game even if it plays exactly like Killzone 2 because I'm not a fan of Halo. Devlopers need to learn.

Sure, but only if the shooting mechanic's and gun selection are awesome and the story is really Good... Has to feel engaging and interesting..

FPS will never be the only type of Awesome Game, but when done right it can be a really huge Seller -Battlefield 3- I'm looking at you... LoL
