Where are the first-person shooters?

#1dcamp27Posted 1/22/2013 4:06:20 AM
There isn't a single first-person shooter on 3DS. The DS at least had some first-person shooters and it didn't even have an analog stick. There is no excuse for the 3DS. I'm going to have to go buy a Vita, which has plenty of first-person shooters.
Also, where the heck are the sports games on 3DS? We didn't even get a Madden game in 2012.

If you want FPS put Resident Evil in First Person instead of third person mode.
Bam! FPS.

All I want is TimeSplitters. And maybe for the games around in 2003 to be viable again. =D Oh nostalgia...

if you want shooting games, you're better off buying an ipad (or waiting for the razer edge)

Your point on Resident Evil is a decent workaround, and I love that game, but it's not really a first-person shooter.
It's like Nintendo and Sony struck a deal. In order to get more consumers buying both handhelds, Nintendo decided to let Sony's Vita have the first-person shooters, sports games, and Mortal Kombat. That way, people would be enticed to buy both 3DS and Vita.

No thanks. I hate gaming on tablets and phones.

You make a valid point. I do own both systems, and I still want TimeSplitters. It would look much better on the Vita. I am not otherwise a big FPS fan, but I like ones that are fun. COD is not fun to me, though Halo can be sometimes.

Yeah, Call of Duty is bad in single-player. I hate how the game has a lot of checkpoints and the enemies spawn at those checkpoints. It's like the enemy doesn't even exist until you get to that checkpoint. In contrast, Goldeneye for the N64 all the enemies in the stage exist right at the start of the stage. For example, there were stages where if you shoot a loud gun (rather than using a silencer) in a building at the start of the stage, every single enemy in the stage will come at you all at once. If you kill them all at that start of the stage, then you could walk thru the rest of the stage with no one around. It made the game more fun.

How very true! I don't like playing online multiplayer for shooters, I like sitting in a room with friends and playing; a game also has to have a satisfying single player, which COD doesn't. It's all about online, and I am not. I am clearly not the demographic they are looking for.

Put "FPS" in the search bar. There's one in development.

Yeah, I made a topic about this pretty recently as well. I think the largest reason for the lack of FPS games on the 3DS is the lack of western support. Western companies create a lot of shovelware and licensed s*** for the 3DS, but not many high-profile titles. I think there's a market for FPS games on the 3DS, but apparently they don't think so.
