Anyone else feel competitive shooters have gotten worse.....

... throughout this generation. Games like Resistance 1, Halo 3, Killzone 2, Warhawk, Shadowrun, Team Fortress 2, etc were and still are the most competitively fun games this generation. Halo, Killzone, Resistance series have all gotten worse it seems.

None of the competitive shooters released now can hold my interest for very long. Brink was close but was too flawed. Seems COD syndrome has ruined the spirit of competitive shooters

Killzone 2 is definitely the most addictive and fun competitive online shooter I've played this gen.

Disappointed at what turned out to be killzone 3. Its like they took everything unique and good about killzone 2 and said "right, how can we make this just like every other shooter?"

I did like the jetpacks in Killzone 3 though.

agree with you there. i put about 200 hours into KZ2 online and got tired of KZ3 online at about the 20 hours mark. The game lost its identity and became another interchangeable mindless shooter.

If MAG had more Maps it would be my top online shooter. MAG and MG0 was what I was best at. I liked Killzone2, Warhawk, Uncharted2 But I just wasnt good at them.

Cod is influencing online shooters more and more every year, which is why games lose their identities. Seems like every game has some sort of Killstreak.

K3 is literally the same thing as K2 with more stuff. i don't see how it's worse than K2. To me, it's a whole lot better. The MOVE support is killer.

KZ3 plays nothing like KZ2. How you can even make that statement is beyond me.
