[IGN] This is a Bad Time to be an FPS Fan

post #1 of 93
Thread Starter 
Quote:
There's rarely any opportunity to explore, or approach via another route, and therefore absolutely no means to experiment with different strategies in the way that you routinely have to in multiplayer. Just walk towards the objective marker, kill everything in your way, and remember to get behind cover to recharge your health.

I agree with everything written. even though MP is very good, the SP of BF3 is disappointing at best (not because of bugs which i didn't run into).
What do you guys think about the lastest iterations of FPS franchises?

I find SP FPS experiences such as Crysis 2 and BF3 entertaining. More so than the MP.

I have to say I was very disappointed in the SP for BF3. I thought it was lacking and they just threw it all together. Just wasnt all that for me. MP is great and I am only playing it on 360 right now. MW3 was the opposite, I LOVED the Campaign and the Co-op but I don't even bother with the Multiplayer. I like the more realistic feel and sounds of BF3. Maybe they should work together next time lol. Is it me or do both campaigns seem to cross at one point??

+1 on that, i blame consolitis and devs/publishers having their priorities the wrong way around

the only real way to enjoy FPS is to go down memory lane 5-10 years and the best thing is that you no longer need killer hardware

Yeah, that's what health has switched to. Get hit 4 times center mass, go hide for 5 secs, health is 100%... that's one thing I liked about BF3 Hardcore mode, as it is very limited regen, at most to get rid of the lame bloody screen. I miss the classic CS style health.

Cmon CS: GO... my next fps purchase.

Quick action scenes piss me off too! I wonder if the trend will start to shift to other eras... I think Modern World is played out a bit.

I just wish there was more TLC put into the single player campaigns. I am a HUGE SP guy.

DSL/Cable Internet brought a new form of gaming. Playing with others across the world.
During that time the author described, consoles weren't capable of online play. The Dreamcast attempted this but was hampered by dial-up connections.
SP had to be the main focus becuase online play wasn't feasable consoles pre-DreamCast.

Playing with other people across the world became more enjoyable than playing alone.
SP is important but for shooters, many people can do without it. The only reason BF3 had a SP campaign was to appease console/casual gamers, otherwise it would have been MP only.
I think RPG hybrids like Deus Ex and Mass Effect has replaced FPS for a immersive SP experience.
Unless devs create a type of Sandbox gameplay with some direction and a realistic plot, maybe SP can be saved. FarCry3 looks pretty good.

It would be pretty cool to take my solider from Boot Camp to the Battlefield(RPG/FPS hybrid), rather than being a one man army chasing WMDs.

Well, I went in with low expectations for the SP of BF3, and those expectations were met.

But honestly, I don't care. Battlefield has never had a storyline like COD's, and it doesn't have to. Where BF3 succeeds is in its multiplayer element, the primary reason why I purchased it in the first place
