Too many shooters aim to assemble the ultimate arsenal of ultimate destiny when all they really need is a few really good guns.
Just so long as all eight of those guns are sniper rifles that shoot nuclear bombs.
I believe the game you're looking for is Serious Sam, then.
As long as yer Calls of Duty or whatever have a semi-automatic assault rifle I don't care how many other guns it has. The FAL in MW2 and the MKwhatever in MW3 are where it's at.
A semi auto assault? Ye of little imagination. Whatever happened to the BFGs and the Cerebral Bores, damn it?
That's boring! Anyone can kill somebody with the cerebral bore. It's about running into a firefight where everyone is waving machine guns around like idiots and then taking out 5 guys in as many bullets. Hitting a guy in the face with a thing that...chews through his head (what did that gun do exactly?) is cool and all, but killing a guy because your trigger finger is more reliable than his? Badass.
"That's boring! Anyone can kill somebody with the cerebral bore." pfft anybody can kill anybody with any thing..for example see this spoon. http://www.smoothharold.com... I could kill you with it. -evily sharpens end of spoon- >:) lmao nah but really you could kill some one with a spoon :D
Idk in bf3 I switch through 3 different assualt rifles not to mention shottys Wen there's a Noob exploiting the usas. Not counting guns from other classes
If BF3 or MW3 had only 8 guns, I'd be pissed.
I just need one gun. A shotgun that rapid fires at long range through a 12x scope with a RPG alt fire mode.
That'll be Hard Reset then.
Bullsh*t. I love having tons of guns to choose from. In Battlefield alone I probably use 20+ different guns. And I use the KHS2002 a fourth of the time anyway. Only having 8 guns would suck. And Borderlands would suck with only eight guns, get this sh*t outta here!
There is nothing wrong with having more variation of good guns. Yes make 8 great guns, then simply let player find the same guns but with slightly better stats, so you still using your favorite gun, but you also get the feeling of reward after you found better one. That is exactly what Borderlands does, and there is nothing wrong with that system, it works and it works fine.
Yea, maybe 8 different categories of guns.
More guns give diversity, as long as they arent like the same. Different guns suit different players, some people might enjoy a slower fire rate with more bang, or more fire rate with less range, etc. The looks, the feel. It all depends on a players play style. That, or if you are able to have only 8 weapons, but with lots of customization for each one (as long as they are kept balanced enough). That would work too.
BS the more content in a game and the better it is. From more weapons and maps to more things to do in a game. Its why Skyrim is so great. Because it gives people choice.
You hit the nail on the head. Choice. I don't even bother with games that don't have gun customization or a large cache of guns because, hey I LOVE GUNS! Borderlands was my cup of tea for that very reason. I have so many different shotguns just for different purposes, one even works as a grenade launcher (it shoots rockets on a slope). I love western rifles and I also love assault rifles, and every once in a while I like to snipe. The article misses the point insofar that sometimes I'm in a mood to spray-n-pray and other times I feel like picking and placing my shots with different guns in different scenarios. I've never played a game with only a handful of well-balanced guns that give me that feeling.
Agree. Shooting stuff and watching it blow up with goodies in Borderlands never got boring. I would try out new guns that I might never have used in other games simply because I'd gotten it as a rare drop. This is the only shoooter I didn't get bored with after 25hrs of gameplay, and the variety and ever-increasing grade level of weapons was the main reason why.
The Left4Dead school of thought eh? I see the logic, but it only works for shooters that try to go for realism. That, and some games actually do have 8 guns, but with multiple models. BF3 is kind of like that with many guns having the same stats, but different models/animations.
yeah tell that to Turok
Lol f*ck that game
