Do players of general shooters have issue with Splatoon?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Do players of general shooters have issue with Splatoon?

Huh, I remember making a thread asking about how Splatoon could pull in CoD players, I think that didn't go so well, anyways as a casual shooter player(is this a thing?), I tried the game because it just looks interesting, the way you focus on painting the ground rather than killing spree, I thought it might be fun(and I was right) so yeah.

No issues, just not a big fan.

Most of them probably consider it a kids game.

And ironically, most of them saying this are children themselves. But you know, wanting to affirm yourself being as old as your other fellow adults by playing  "mature" games are the way to go !

I agree. It's been going on since Sega invented the whole kiddie concept during the 16-bit wars.

This is actually a pretty interesting question/idea but unfortunately the OP is not fully developed and is filled with grammatical errors. Definitely NOT one of the worst threads to the person who said that.

I was a pretty big shooter fan in like 2010 - 2012, I have lost interest a tad but it's still one of my most played genres. I played some Splatoon 1 but never got into it really. My experienc with shooters recently has been Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege, and Playerunknown's Battlegrounds .. though in a smaller compacity then had they released 5 years ago. I'm not like, a COD player or a shooter bro but I am very experienced in the genre.

So anways as a big shooter fan ... I really enjoy Splatoon. I think it's quality gets conflated with how "unique" it is...which is something that kind of bugs me. I think the game has a lot of problems. But it's definitely very enjoyable. I think it's surprising how much aspects of shooters work so much better in Splatoon with small tweaks. As someone who has seen entire analysis videos on why the games are great, I still think a lot of people forget the small differences that really make it stand out.

For instance the Battlefield series has adopted bullet drop since like Battlefield 3, but it has more or less just been an annoyance to create a "realistic difficulty gap". In Splatoon though ink drop over long distances is an actual tool you can use to your advantage. In general connecting your weapons with the actual map is a great idea, because it maintains focus on the environment and the objective. The Battlefield series is super overrated and it's mostly because the games emphasize "teamwork" but are created more so with the idea that you can just run like a chicken with your head cut off around an objective, shooting everyone in the point until you can just go and take it. Connecting the actual objective to your basic act of shooting assures that you're almost always progressing further.

That being said, it's not acceptable just how bad the non-gyro controls are. Especially because it's on a handheld.



I play FPS' a lot. About 50% of my gaming time is spent with the genre. I picked up Splatoon 2, and don't really like it. I have no problem with it, but it hasn't hooked me. I'm not sure what I don't care for. It may be the third person perspective (I don't usually play TPS games), but I don't feel like thats it.....



Played it, didn't care for it. Don't care enough to hate it. Like what you like. Wasn't too fun for me



I imagine the obvious. Shooter guys wanna shoot shit and get kill streaks and brag about KDRs. Splatoon doesn't scratch the itch for those wants.

Plus it's third person and colorful and features literal children which are also three things shooter bros don't wish to associate themselves with.



"You should be banned. Youre clearly flaming the president and even his brother who you know nothing about. Dont be such a partisan hack"

I generally play typical shooters like COD, OW, Destiny 2, etc. I just got Splatoon 2 a few days ago and really enjoying it. Love the vibrant colours and the overall focus on the objective as opposed to just shooting people.

I do have some concerns over the game's balance though. That stem roller weapon seems a little OP to me but I haven't unlocked much yet, so I've yet to fully test everything out.
