Bullet Hell and Modern Day Shooting

Posted by bossman (100 posts) -

I just had the weirdest realization while watching some videos on line. Playing Call of Duty on Veteran difficulty turns it into a bullet hell shooter. I know what you're thinking, but follow me on this for a second. A bullet hell shooter is all about finding the one or two safe paths through the sea of death, so is Veteran difficulty in CoD. Yes, luck of the draw on where the AI is looking does play a part in the life or death struggle, but that can happen in most games. Just something to chew on.

Its because the script of the game. The enemys always respaws in the same place, do the same things, so you just have to learn the safe path.
