Bc2 i ok, bf2 wa great mafia 2 was sweet(3rd person tho) just cause 2 is fun metro 2033 was short but ok, Dont buy mw3 or the copy cats, Most game makers are focusing on pc game because xbox 360 and ps3 are (always been) out dated and next gens are coming out, so i hope 2012 is the year of pc gamers (like back in 1999) . But all and all if you only play fps they get a mix it up play rts and sim games just to keep up in times.

CS is to old for me, i was alpha tester only arm bands on players made up the teams then all the way up to cs:s, WAY overplayed and to many hacks / player in yellow suits/mods. only gun game was fun.

Bad Company 2 is pretty good, and I have high hopes for BF3. Metro 2033 is pretty good eye candy, and the game was thoroughly enjoyable even though it was a corridor shooter ala cod4:2. They problem is xbox kiddies are by far the largest and most profitable market, so that is what developers cater to. I don't see that changing, but I could be and hope I am wrong.

typically the only modern fps games i touch used to be any halo games, but that stopped once i switched to pc.

now its mainly been battlefield games, tf2, and left4dead 1 and 2, farcry 2 and crysis

almost everything else is...meh

crysis was a very innovative shooter.
you had to THINK in crysis, unlike other corrodor shooters.

in crysis 2: its all COD. multiplayer is all for consoles! killstreaks, perks, promotions, classes, WHAT IS THIS COD:2023 ALIEN WARFARE?????
the only games that are innovative is all valve games, Crysis, Metro, STALKER, and HALO CE. everything else is a blatant ripoff of other games.
it is very dissapointing. i hope BF3 will change many things tho.

only games i play these days are:
Crysis 1/warhead
L4D2/CS:S/DoD:S/TF2/Portal/2
FC2
JC2
BF2/BC2/BF3 (preorder'd )
COD4 (300+ hrs LOL)/MW2 (200+hrs )/BLOPS(90 sumthin hrs :O)
Star wars battlefront 2 with a crapload of mods

speaking of SWBF2, i guess SWBF3 was just a rumor after all

Only FPS I play now are Bad Company 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and occasionally Team Fortress 2. Back then I played CS 1.6 but I was pretty bad.

Most are meh. I think the last game I enjoyed for MP was MAG on PS3 surprisingly. I wish this game was on PC every day.

Yes. Overall design of most modern FPS just indulge the mindless public's need to play a quick game on and off. They are basically social games. Mechanics are simple and gameplay is based around speed or ease but when everyone wants to get together to play it it's easy to get into.

My rant:
I enjoy modern first person shooters. Recyling gameplay elements have been around since Wolfenstein 3d first came out. Besides graphics and a few elements how can you change the characteristics of a genre. Tecmo bowl was a football game. Madden is a football game. The mechanics haven't changed in almost 20 years. Yes there is more eye candy/animations but it is pretty much the same. Shooting people and using cover for the most part will always be the same.

One FPS that sticks out to me is Metro 2033. It was awesome. Yes, it is a corridor shooter but I was on edge the whole time. The gas mask areas of the game gave me a feeling of claustrophobia.

Stop being elitist.

I like the CoD and BF series. Homefront was good. Along with the entire FEAR series.
Im lost in what you dont like about them. Obviously Crysis 2 sucked along with MW2 and BO for the PC (I think they were fine for consoles) but the games themselves are great.
