I agree. I was really big into counter strike source (not to brag but I was cal i at one point ) but Starcraft II opened up a new world of awesome I had never explored. It's even got a huge competitive community, and that really makes a game for me.

The great thing about PC is that there something for everyone.
I never go into RTS games because of the "hot air balloon view" of the battlefield.
The click here and click there style never appealed to me.

My exp is based on the BF3 beta. Two things I'd like to point out:
*The feel of being out in the open, not in some kind of area with obvious borders.
*A good hiding spot in the nature now really does help with your position. In the other BF series, you could easily see some dude chilling around in the forest from 200-300m

I think that those things are very important when it comes to making the gameplay more realistic.

I would prefer more FPS games with better single player campaigns. I think we have been saturated with online multi-player shooters over the last few years. They are starting to blur together as rehashes.

Some innovation would be nice as you said. Maybe make the campaigns longer and add some RPG elements to the shooters. Leveling up and increasing stats would be cool in say a WWII setting.

Something, anything!

These 4 to 6 hour games in campaign and then having no replay value but offering a mindless run around and shoot people online over and over again is overdone.

I like online play but it gets extremely repetitive. I would have enjoyed the single player campaigns in MoH, BC, BC2, MW and MW2 much better if they were longer and had some replay value.

I could never get into TF2, I just didn't know what the hell to do in it lol

It was at a stage in my life where I was very busy, so maybe I just didn't have time to get into it. However when I was playing the game it felt like I had no direction, I was just running around doing silly things.

I acan agree, I do like to see new games that push our hardware, but then again, we haven't seen any of those guys recently. The market is becomming plagued by console ports and our gaming exerpiance is becomming dimished due to the facts that pirating is such an issue. Even BF3, ill be honest I bought it, and I was really saddended the graphics are just medicore, its ok texture. Why can't the market get another crysis! Like another game that takes us 3 or four years to max out 60fps. Like something that CF 69's will get like 20fps in medium settings. I remember Crysis with my 8800GTX+'s and I ran medium and high at 1280 x 1024 and I was sooo happy! I just wish that another game come out like that. But defintely staying away from the GTA IV type game that you can't run max simply because of miserable optimization. Crysis 1 was optimized extremely well! Maybe the new Metro Last Light will bring that, or if Rockstar is smart, GTA V and releasing it for PC first!!! (In my dreams)

I bought TF2 a few years ago. Played it for about 2 hours then never touched it. Recently I started playing it again and i much enjoy it more now. Might be worth another look if you're ever sat at your PC with nothing to do.

I feel this way about BF3. I can understand why people would want to rush out and buy it, but it's not for me anymore. I don't know if FPSs have changed or if I have.

I thought it would be stupid but then someone sent me this:


And I *had* to play! I actually like the lack-of-direction feel, makes it feel almost like a sandbox. Almost.

honestly, that's why I'm still playing Armed Assault 2. I recreate the missions I like from those arcade styled FPS. But I'm tired of the same old same old FPS (they all claim to be the most realistic,..the most action packed,..the most blah blah).

Matter of fact, I'm watching people play BF3 on youtube. I'm watching the single player campaign because I'm curious has to how it is. So far I'm up to A rock and Hard place. But I'm not going to buy the game. It sounds great but I've noticed it's heavily scripted (which was my biggest problem with Medal of Honor Tier 1, it was good for only one play. Then I gave it to my cousin).
