I like them....they just keep being made because Americans cant get enough of them though. Very few standout games in the FPS lot.


OK. JRPGs just keep being made because Japanese cant get enough of them though. Very few standout games in the JRPG lot.

Do you see, they're mostly the same if not, they are very rare.


JRPG's test gamers on a level FPS titles cannot. Call it cerebral....but look at where thge FF franchise has gone and you can see its probably going to turn into kingdom hearts with versus.

Start naming those cerebral games please. Tell me how JRPGs test my reflex. QTE's doesn't count.

First person shooters are today what platformers / sidescrolling action games were back in the 8-16 bit eras. I didn't hear anybody complain about the mind numbing amount of cheap platformers and sidescrollers back in the day. For every quality platformer like a Mario or Sonic game, there were a dozen lazy, uninspired, usually based on a license platformers that would make you pull your hair out after spending 5 minutes with them.

Just look at all the AVGN videos if you want proof.


In terms of revenue, yes you're right, in terms of literal evolution, third person games are the natural evolution not FPS.

Yes, they dont test your ability to keep items and strategize in battle. You're right, you just point a shoot just like an FPS. RTS, JRPG's, and puzzle games are the most cerebral of the major games. I like FPS games myself and am pretty good at them, but its not like they are adding to my intelligence. The only shooter that forced me to think was battlefield, but thats because I was on a team with people and we were all barking out orders and strategies to take over points and dominate the map. Thats about the only FPS that has forced me to think and I can blame that on the competitive aspect of the game.



They are OK and I havent played enough of them.

I've only played

-Quake 1
-Quake 3
-Left 4 Dead 2

But I do have others that I have yet to install or played.

You tell me that all those ladyboys with mixed feelings and cliche stories are better than Halo, Spec Ops, Resistance, etc...?

No disrespect but if you don't like a genre just say it but don't invent bull crap about it.

Do you think the competitive online multi-player is just point and shoot?

Cerebral? What about good old Mr Fun? Does games have to have just one characteristic?

You must suck at Halo and COD by just what you said right now.

See my edit.



i like them, not all, i think alot of hate just stems from the fact that people dont like it being the most popular genre right now.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.
