I'm all for Battlefield, but The Crew looks amazing as well, so it's probably my number two game. But, yeah, big focus on FPS games.

I loved FPS games back in the day. Played them on PC, SNES, N64, PS, PS2. But after that I had my fill. Which I find strange because I feel like FPS games didn't really get popular outside of PC gaming until 360. At least it didn't take the industry by storm like it has now.

I would really like a return of the 3D platformer.

God I hope not.

It's odd though how developers seem to ignore the boatloads of praise and money that the top indie games earn, which show that the community is hungry for different experiences, in favor of keeping those ''gotta top CoD!'' blinders on. Non-fps, realistically budgeted games sell but they simply don't care.

If they did something different with the FPS genre, then it may be for the better.

The Portal series is incredible, and you don't kill a single enemy.

Generic sci fi shooters everywhere and pretentious "realistic" movie wannabe titles in between releases.

That's the new gen for you. Blame it on the brogamers and the people that went native and supports graphics and C rated movie plots > gameplay and originality.

Yes unfortunately. Shooters are the future and everything else is old outdated machanics.
