do people not like playing arena shooters anymore?

For me it gets to a point where you cannot even peak around a corner and you get your head blown off by some neckbeard who plays 10 hours a day but still uses a sniper rifle. I am mostly speaking of counter strike...

Anyway, when a game or series is fresh everyone is on the same playing field. As time goes on people figure out how to game the system, get insanely good and it just becomes no fun for me.


So much this, I was doing pretty good and having fun in Quake Live until I get to the top tier and then it's no longer fun, I am now having a difficult time getting just one kill in this tier, and there is no way to go and play with lower tier players :( (unless you pay)

They are literally unplayable on a console, thats the only reason they are gone.


QFT


not true. i used to play unreal championship (yes, the port of everyone's least favorite ut game. that still doesn't make it not an arena shooter) all of the time with full bots on god mode, low gravity, game speed at max, instagib enabled, and still would come out on top. that may not be 100% the same as playing against "neckbeards" online, but i'd say that still means it can be done on consoles in some fashion at least. god mode bots and instagib are ****ing ridiculous.

I used to hate fps before I discovered gems like Quake, DOOM, Painkiller, etc...

I can dig military shooters, but only if they're like old school Rainbow Six or Arma. COD was fun for a short while but got old quick.

those games are great, even though they're so old. i think heretic or hexxen may be my favorites from the doom engine tbh. i'm really anxious to see what the next trend in shooters will now that cod seems to be losing steam. i can only hope that change comes sooner rather than later.
