During what I suppose one could call the “golden age” of the arcade, I saw a fair number of these. But as the arcades gave way to the home systems, both PC and console, I saw few of these game types “come along for the ride”, certainly in the current generation. The question becomes, “why?” When it comes to games, have we become a “First person shooter” (FPS) nation? While they certainly are the “in” thing on our shores at the moment, I think that is to simplistic a response. First though, a look at some of the genres.
