Speaking of good shooters, I'll try to list all of the series that I can remember that were good to me:
Call of Duty (Zelda fans, hush up a bit and realize that CoD is perhaps the BIGGEST franchise of all time. Definitely the fastest and highest selling.)
Halo (I dislike all releases past CE, but they're good games regardless of my personal qualms)
Counter Strike (mod of Half Life)
Resident Evil (it's really a survival horror, but they play basically the same as any ol other shooter. And the combat medium is a gun.)
BLACK (short lived but it was the best shooter on PS2 in my honest opinion)
DELTA FORCE (best shooter series ever, DF2 for reals)
Army of Two
[there are many more that I cannot remember]
Zelda fans lately seem to think that because you play a shooter that you're a traitor. Or if you like a shooter that it means you like Call of Duty. I personally LOVE CoD, for reasons I won't and certainly don't have to state, but I am in no way a traitor because of that. I can like Zelda as equally as I like CoD. I can like Zelda as equally as I like shooters (though I prefer Zelda anyway). Comments such as:
are totally unwarranted and certainly harmful. Admittedly, I laughed at a lot of Zelda fans' obvious hatred for the shooter genre because they mistakingly branded the shooter genre as "Call of Duty" without realizing that Shooter isn't synonymous with CoD. Still, there are many great shooters out there, you just have to look for them.
That's in any game, no matter what you play. Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D is actually the epitome of draw distance affecting the pixelation/realization of enemy 3D models. CoD doesn't do that, however, unless you're very VERY far from an enemy. In which case, you should own a sniper ;Pi like a lot rail shooter like star fox 64 and sin and punishment 2
what i don`t like in game like call of duty is that your too far to see your ennemies so the graphic are kind of useless.
Wait, you like BF3 but not CoD? They've the same gameplay, only thing missing from CoD is vehicle control and explosions...wait, no, we have MOAB, Pred Missle, AC-130, Reaper, Recon Drone, Napalm Strike and so on as point streak rewards. I'm confused. :?I dislike the popular shooters such as CoD and even the new Halos (I felt halo got bad after the second one..). But some shooters I find really fun such as Team Fortress 2, and more recently Battlefield 3 seems alright
Crayk said:Shooting games are boring for me. They don't have some points for shooting.
CoD didn't do that to him. People who talk of the army, they're generally serious people. Unless he has some psychological problem going on, and I doubt he does but who knows, he's not serious about going to the army to kill people. The army is serious business, it's to protect the nation not for fun. It's very far off to say a game, Call of Duty no less, changed your friend like that.I dislike shooters only because of the little light bulb ideas they put in heads of teens. My friend never used to speak about joining the war, but now after hes played these games he thinks he is invincible and that he would kill in wars. He's my friend, i dont want to see him die in a war! CoD did that to him, and one day, knock on wood, CoD may actually kill my friend. This is why i dislike shooters.
^The most major problem is that the young adults of this gaming generation rate anything with an E or E10 on the cover as a bad, childish game. You pull up the name Zelda at any conversation at my school, and you get plenty of fingers and laughs in your face. This is the problem, they won't expand their horizon to different genres of games and stick with the generic CoD and rate anything else as not as good is that.
If you play a game for its story, I think there may be something wrong with you...but of course, Turo can explain that. My main point is, a shooter doesn't exist for the story. Shooters primarily exist for the SHOOTING part. If you want a story, go play an RPG. The story is simply the icing on the cake of gameplay. >.>'
