10 Reasons To Hate Modern FPS Games

The first person shooter genre is one of the most, if not the most, successful genre in gaming: nobody can deny the thrill of blasting your friends, or random strangers in the face, defusing a bomb or lobbing a grenade through a window. There's a certain value and longevity to shooters that no other genre seems to be able to achieve, except an MMO or some open world games. FPS is one of the most refined genres around featuring gameplay that gets better every year. But sometimes, we just wish that shooters were never invented.

10. It's All Some People Play

Do you know how many times I've looked through someones games on Xbox LIVE, and seen "Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2, World at War, Call of Duty 4" on someone's list? Nothing else.

No, gamers are free to choose what they want to play, but a real gamer wants to play the best games they can. It saddens me to know that some people are missing out on good stories, artful worlds and quality gameplay. These people are missing out on every element I've mention previously in this article, and while it's bad for them, it least it keeps them off the rest of the games.

I live in Australia, love to write and play games. So what better than writing about games? I love all things action and fantasy, as well as my occasional shooter. I literally cannot wait for GTAV!
