Anyone besides me, NOT like modern combat games?

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 
Ok, with all this hoopla and excitment about BF3, and whatever the freaking Call of Duty series sequel is up to, I can't help but ask: Does anyone else besides me just not find any fun in all these "modern" warefare combat FPS shooters these past few years?

I played BF2 when it launched in its heyday and I had fun for it, for awhile. Then EA really started to do stupid crap which I won't get into either. Needless to say, after the first expansion to BF2 came out and I was rather dissapointed and just getting more and more frustrated with playing in modern warfare games then having fun, I just backed out of them completely.

I just never get the fun and enjoyment factor of all the fancy and glamored up modern and futuristic combat games like the Battlefield can Call of Duty series has been all about recently. I just don't find it as entertaining as say, a good and well done WWII shooter game like Battlefield 1942 was. No fancy dancy radars, mine checkers, see all vision goggle, sattellite bombardment ect..ect...

I've tried iterations of the Battlefield and COD series and I just....I just can't do it. I've tried variations like Frontlines, Homefront ect...ec.. and I just end up getting frustrated and never having fun trying to get into the scope of the game, wether I play it on PC or XBox 360.

And don't even get me started on that horrid game that is Counter Strike...

I just now, several hours later was able to get the BF3 beta on 360 working and after about 30 minutes, I just wanted to throw my controller through the TV screen. I can't find people worth crap in BF series graphics that seem so washed out and bland color pallet, I can never see whats coming around the corner cause the shadows are too busy moving distracting my field of view or being blinded by the next gen "lens flare" effect why I try to target people up in buildings only to get sniped from God knows where, respawn, repeat..repeat.....


God, I just wish EA and Dice would wake the hell up and do a remake of the BF1942 series and just go back to FUN basics in FPS, instead of doing this developer wang size fight between the makers of BF and COH the past few years, its not doing anything for me.

Is Skyrim out yet? No? ok, guess i'll be busy trying to finish Crysis for the first time on my new rig and keep playing Halo Reach for a futuristic FPS that I do enjoy playing most times.

Well there was a long series of WWII shooters coming out years ago. Now it is time for the modern shooters. At least the pattern is easy to follow? Or you can wait for Planetside 2?

I can't stand most new popular multiplayer FPS games. It seems like they have far too much going on (perks, weapon upgrades, vehicles, gigantic maps, etc). I prefer nice and well polished games like CS (1.6 and Source) and TF2 (to an extent) that keep it simple.

Basically, it seems like most of these games these days are targeted towards 13 year olds with ADHD.

I agree, the ranking, upgrades, unlocks and all that jazz just make it even more of a jumbled , high on coke developer with ADD inspired game. Hell, I can load up BF1942 9 years since its launch and still have a freaking blast playing it, single player or online, with peeps or with bots. Honestly, how many games can you say hold out that long?

In fact, it might be worthwhile to see if I can get it BF1942 running stable on this new rig and install Desert Combat, the ONLY truly fun and simple modern warefare game IMO.

The only combat game i can stand playing is crysis 2 mp just for the fact you can hide from the enemy and plan out your move. The only way your kill shot will fail is if you are lagging, your trying to act too quickly, or your gun isn't end game. The only annoyance i have with Crysis 2 mp is when your shooting somebody in the front of you, and just as you nearly have him killed, his teammate is silently shooting you in the backside and then you end up with no +1 to your score and instead receive a +1 to your death count.

I also dont like them, Specially most popular FPS games set in modern times, eg. the COD series and now BF3. Hell, I think its time we stop with this WAR FPS fetish. WW2 has been done to death and Modern Warefare...meh..I liked metro and crysis but still imo we need a break. We need more Games like the Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, MafiaL CoLH, Tomb Raider, and maybe Batman AA and Assassins Creed...more quality stuff that goes deep into the storyline and less crap ports targeting console kiddies. look what happened to NFS.

I agree to some extent, I really miss the old MoH's like allied assault. But bf3 is, in my opinion, one of the best fps's out in this time period, but I miss the older games

I'm not a big fan to FPS. Every once a while I play them and do have fun, but I'm not the type of person who plays them for hours and hours.

I dislike the run&gun of it all, I sincerely miss how you had to be tactical is CS, and it was about reactions and accuracy, not who was better hidden in which bush

Honestly? I think CS:S and Bad Company 2 have it made for multi-player. CS:S can run on basically anything, and BC2 has much more going for it than any other game (I don't see tanks, helicopters and ATV's in Call Of Duty). <--- I don't care if I get flamed for this, it's an opinion.

I'm tired of every game trying to look like the competition.
