MICROSOFT: After watching the horrible microsoft conference wich main focus was kinect and of course started with MW3 as usual i fear for the future of console games being overrun by fps shooters.i am getting sick of fps as a genre,it's become generic.Even the biggest franchises like BF3 and MW3 doesn't interested me that much anymore.it's become bland and uninspiring,getting people suckered in with shiny new graphics and sound,if you look at the fps as a basis without theese two elements, it's nothing more than pushing a trigger,no thinking at all just going around,shooting and hiding in a corner,if you like to camp.then we have some intresting fps games like ghost recon future soldier.That at least tries to be new in some ways,but still nothing but a shock and awe,unntil you realise wow!.Another shooter,nothing more.
SONY: They also have the generic shooters killzone,resistance etc.i looked at the E3 2011 conference.Resistance 3 looked so boring,just running around with a battery pack avoiding to get shoot,where is the fun in that?.Sony isn't making it easy to pick fps games it's a lot of flash no substance kind of thing.Sony has atleast uncharted 3,wich mixes 3rd person shooter with adventure this isn't the run of the mill fps that is the kind of titles i seek,not the resistance and killzones,we already have to many of thoose.
NINTENDO: The fps games nintendo got is 3rd party fps exlusives,wich is mostly on rails and a medicore fps series called conduit 1 and 2,but there is a difference between nintendo and the other two.They try to innovate,with the fps hybrid Metroid prime series and other M is the only clear winner here.With awesome story's and engaging interactions,because it mixes fps with so much more: adventure,exploration,thinking etc.
PC: FPS started on the pc,and it should had stayed on pc.if it weren't for halo on xbox we wouldn't had any fps games on consoles,and this alone would had made it easier to innovate.Making pc an exlusive place for fps games as a genre,but it never happened.
CONCLUSION: FPS isn't going to go away anytime soon,but it will finally get a well earned rest.When we can find new ways to innovate fps,as a exciting new genre,wich is not any time soon.I am crossing my fingers!.
