Are you serious? Your first response is this? Not only did you not answer the OP correctly, but you attempt to put FPS's down as well and that's
just beyond ignorant, for the FPS genre has taken video games and it's veil of 'nerd secrecy' and turned it into what it is today. Video games
wouldn't be nearly as popular if it weren't for online gaming and what does online gaming consist mostly of? First Person Shooters. How much more
imagination do they really need to put into Halo or a game based off true stories such as Call of Duty? Because, both of those games have actually
pioneered the video game genre 10x fold my friend. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's graphic engine and detail in 1080P was soo ridiculously
beautiful, I got chills playing it for the first time. When I cut into a Locust for the first time with my Lancer, and I saw this gore I've never
seen before in a game, I loved it from that moment on. When I played Delta Halo for the first time, flying in with the ODST, being exposed to Hi-Res
480P ruins, it literally took my breath away....
So where is this 'Lack' you're talking about when it comes to some of the titles he's mentioned? Because from what I can see, they're all very
well respected titles that made it big because of the production teams efforts in the 'imagination' department.
Now, I do agree with you about it in one sense, which is that games nowadays are completely casual and watered down. It's worse than the radio now.
Casual is the thing apparently. Halo 3 is far more casual and easy to play than Halo 2. When I realized they cut half of the skills in Oblivion
compared to it's old predecessor Morrowind, and that all the caves and secret places contained randomly generated items based off level scaling, I
was pretty pissed. Bottom line is, if you don't like FPS's, then don't play them. But don't come onto a thread where the OP is asking you to list
YOUR favorite 25 games, and the first thing that is typed from your fingers is "I think you're wrong about your own favorites."
Here are some others I have left out:
- Time Crisis 1&2 (Arcade)
- Tetris Attack (SNES)
- Area 51 (Arcade)
- Mario Paint
- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1, 2, and 3
- Star Wars: Jedi Academy II
- Gears of War 1&2
- Golden Sun: The Lost Age (GBA)
