Well it is not perfect, but I have had up to eight TVs an only two consoles in a room playing Halo 2 not too long ago. I have not tried it on Halo 3 or Reach, but it would be surprising if it was not there. You are right of course that most games lack split screen, but that is a far cry from saying that shooters are no longer social when the reality is the are more social due to more options in how to play.


That's not more options, that's different options, and it's certainly not more social. Playing online with a headset does not make you social. The internet is not a substitute for real human interaction. Hell, we do a large amount of communication non-verbally as humans, with body language and facial expressions. You cannot substitute that with online play. Hell, I won't even CONSIDER buying a racing game without split screen, because that's literally the only way I'll play it at all. 

I think you read my post incorrectly or I did not make myself clear enough. I said it had two xboxes connected to 8 tvs in one room. That is more people playing than the 4 person split screen you are talking about. I also mentioned spit screen coop. I could name numerous titles this gen that do meet that description.

Using the internet for more human interaction has been thought to be a downfall to society, but it is not all bad. Your website is partially run of of interaction on the internet so you can't compleatly say it is all bad.

None of my posts have suggested I prefer talking on the headset anyways to strangers, when in reality the best times for me have been playing coop campaigns with friends of many genres in the same room. Still the genre that has the most coop is the shooter.

took the words right out of my mouth, but i disagree on the racing part, im having so much fun with NFS Hot Pursuit i didnt even notice there was no split screen, to each his own



The only FPSs that I liked were the prime games... so I guess everything depends on when/if we get another prime kind of game...

But I know that the moment I swear off shooters Timesplitters 3 will somehow be announced.

Anyway, I essentially swore off shooters a long time ago. The market moved to a dark and scary place where I just couldn't follow.



after dust 514, i am finished with fps. With games like demon's souls around, they make fps games look like childs play.

I've been done with military shooters since 2003, and it only took that long because I've never played them that much to begin with. I just find them to be utterly boring, and none of the advancements that have been made, or will be made in the future will ever change that.

I think you just don't like certain types of games. Because I don't like the shooters your talking about either.

Though I like gears, because I think it is the best pure Third Person Shooting Game. And crysis, because it's so damn pretty on PC, it's got decent gameplay, but it's nice to look at pretty for like 6 hours.



I have an issue with any game that uses first person perspective. I don't know why. I thought Goldeneye on the N64 was ok, but I got sick of it really quickly.
I tried playing Bioshock, because my friends told me it had some great atmosphere and story. Got bored and had to stop. I guess I just have a problem with only seeing the characters hands all the time.
It's a really big problem too, because all of my friends basically have moved on to FPS's now.

Qual é, Dadinho...?

Dadinho é o caralho! Meu nome agora é Zé Pequeno!

Games like call of duty and battlefield yes but game that Starbreeze makes (like the Riddick games) can't get enough of it and the next Bioshock is also a must :).



 

Nah games like Metro Last light, Bioshock infinite, Prey 2 and even Far Cry 3, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 look to awesome to turn down even if I don't get all of them full price because I am poor
