James Melrose continues his "Fire Door" blog on Thatgameshow.net by exploring the origins of the shooter. Is there a desperate lack of creativity in this genre? Are the oldies truly the best? Read his views, then tell us what you think...
Yea today's shooter just aren't fun as they were back in the day i mean i could play Goldeneye64 for hours and nowaday max is 2- 3hours then i just get bored.
I don't think it's an inherent lack of fun - just a lack of creativity. Battlefield Bad Company 2 is good because it's unique in the sense that they've taken a genre, and absolutely made it real - you don't feel like a superhero (like CoD or Halo), you feel like a soldier in a team
