Man I am tired of these neverending shooters that these companies keep churning out. It is starting to remind of the days when the gaming industry was dying during the days of Atari

Yeah I agree. they need to start thinking a little more outside the box. Ha! no pun intended, but made me smirk!

Every gaming generation has an over-used genre. Back in the NES days, it was platformer here, platformer there, platformer everywhere. In the SNES and Sega Genesis days, it was 2D fighter here, 2D fighter there, 2D fighter everywhere. In the PS2 and Gamecube era, it was 3D platforming here, 3D platforming there, 3D platforming everywhere. Though I will agree that this "multiplayer shooter" generation is the worst, it will eventually either die out, or there will be more balance between shooters and other types of games.

Shooting game won't die out until they come out with something that outshine the "thrill" of shooting. like virtual reality or something.

The reason shooting game is so popular is because you can play/interact with other people. The thrill of "beating" someone and talking smack is where the money is.

Isn't that the reason why MMORPG became so popular when it came out. Games like Everquest, and WOW. It's the interaction of other people that is fun. Why do you think Facebook is so popular?

Well, i don't know about you but i like shooting game. and the idea of scaling walls and controlling mech, in addition of shooting appeal to me.

I agree, Stephen Ferris. Way too many shooters. I get more joy out of my iPad than anything else. Games aren't made like they used to, that's for sure.

I disagree. There are less shooters than other types of games. They are, however, much more popular. Think about it.

If you don't like the shooters, don't buy them. I bought three games for the xbox, none of which are shooters. I will buy Titanfall because I feel like it will redefine the shooter genre, which was starting to fall apart.

If you want to rip on shooters, at least rip on the ones that are doing NOTHING to advance the genre. At least they are trying to do something different with Titanfall. There are 30-40 shooters released every year that basically copy and paste gameplay we had 5-6 years ago. I give credit where credit is due, Titanfall looks amazing!!

Having played the beta or alpha or whatever it is, I think this game is great. I dig FPS games, but if you're on xbox one and looking for something different I'd highly recommend Max: The curse of brotherhood, only available for download, but very creative and fun for whole family.

I'm waiting for a developer to come up with a Freelancer kind of game for one of the consoles. I could live without tons of shooters and sports games. At the same time, I'd sure love to see a few more space sims. Now THAT'S an under-populated genre.
