Because health packs and ammo is hard to find in Unreal Tournament lol...also comparing weapon variety in a fantasy fps vs a military fps. If UT was so hardcore, there shouldnt even be a way to recover health.


COD is more fantasy than UT....

Except there are good FPS with health regen.


I would love some examples.


Far Cry 3.


Blended health regen with health packs.


Still had health regen. I wouldn't really call stims healthpacks, either.

A mechanic does not make a game bad.

TotalBiscuits point is dumb...

He is comparing a fictional fps to a military fps, why didn't he compare it to Borderlands?

Sorry but in this video all his rants made TB look like an ignorant fool.


This is Youtube we're talking about, you don't have to be intelligent, you just have to be entertaining/have some schtick to get viewers.

Bad mechanics make for bad gameplay. I suppose regenerating health by itself doesn't ruin a game, but its presence is almost always accompanied by a host of other bad mechanics, e.g. the inexplicable ability to see enemies through walls.

UT 2004 is the greatest FPS of all time.


This. I still play every other week or so when I can find a game. My first game I had with broadband internet.

That's not a bad mechanic either. Poorly used mechanics can make a game bad, but the abstract idea that is a mechanic is almost never inherently universally bad.

What was original about Bioshock's weapons? Pretty standard guns and spells. Sure the levitation was fun to play with but it really served no purpose nor was it unique. Why is Metroid Prime always forgotten as a first person shooter? Bioshock exploration of Rapture is nothing compared to Metroid 1 and 2's exploration.

Because when you mention Metroid Prime being a FPS, or any kind of shooting game at all, a bajillion bitter Nintendo fanbrats will find the topic and rage about how it's a first person ADVENTURE, and not an action game of any kind.
