Oh I think Action-Adventures are also moving to more and more action oriented gameplay, or look at Dead Space 3, Resident Evil. It seems shooting stuff sells a lot of games
Oh i don't have much trouble with older graphics, but the early 3D stuff is just too ugly. Limbs that are made of a handfull of polygons and joints that are just loose connections between the polygon sticks, no textures to speak of, that is just ugly. A 16bit 2d game can still look beautiful today.
The issue with difficulties is not really a new problem, what did the older shooters do? You just got less ammunition, Enemies had more HP and medkits were rare. Or in RTS games the AI just cheated with resources and build times. On the other hand it's relatively easy to make a challenging platformer or 2d shooter where it's all about patterns. That's why I like XCOM:EU on the high difficulties the game really stacks the deck against you but that's okay because you have to fight a alien invasion on limited resources, add to that perma death for your squad members and a game mode where only one save is allowed with auto save on.
I really hope that a new console generation get's the studios again to experiment more with their concepts, but maybe it's just gotten to big to allow for such things on Triple AAA titles.
Yeah, I feel you there. There was just something about the ps2 SOCOM games man. Sorta like what others had touched on with CS is exactly what I got from SOCOM games. My friends & I had a group of random guys from Texas we would play with regularly. We weren't even in the same country as them & yet I felt a connection to them just through a game. I mean, from s2 until Combined Assault we would run together... thats a decent chunk of time. Hell, on CA we would just play Citadel 24/7 but it was a BLAST.Originally Posted by Demon11:25246599
Maybe it was just a more mature community or something, but I can't even play a shooter on my xbox without muting the whole lobby first because people are just annoying twats online now.
