It seems ever since the xbox all western gamers want to play are shooters. The FPS has become what platformers were back in the 80-mid 90s. It's making gaming seem violent and immature. When will the fps die? Will it last forever?
I think the reason FPS is so popular for devs is its easy. It does not take much imagination to make a first person shooter.
Im not saying FPS games are bad but the market is bursting at the seems with them. Many older gamers hate the turn gaming has gone.
Women tend to not be turned on be violence like men are. So they tend to stay far away from most games young men play. So i worry that the FPS could alienate gamers now and in the future.
People will grow up and many could leave gaming. So how long can devs keep making the same games?
