The sorry state of FPS games Anonymous 09/07/2022 (Wed) 21:21:01 Id: b960c9 No. 685509
The past decade has been pretty awful to the FPS genre especially late last year, but the biggest sin and what truly bother anons here is that fucking Destiny is the best of the worst. As the bar was set so fucking low that Destiny doing base shit at it's bare minimum made it have a more stable playerbase then the others, what the fuck is going on with FPS games?
>>685509 FPS is doing fine. Doom Eternal was the best ever in the genre.

I feel the same way about Halo as reddit-11 does about Half-Life; don't hate it, but hate the influence it had. IMO Medal of Honor was far worse, it led to CoD and Battlefield and all the other generic "spunkgargleweewee" military shooters that casuals love so much. >>685509 The FPS genre is getting better though, OP. SGWW type shooters are much rarer now and there's been a huge return to classic FPS design in the indie scene and in some cases mid-level AA developers as well. >Destiny is the best of the worst >more stable playerbase then the others Are you talking about multiplayer FPS? Because you were doomed from the start there, FPS designed with multiplayer in mind exclusively were always barebones and bland even going back to Quake 3.

Realm's Deep had a lot of good games shown if anybody cares. There's one that caught my eye called Sprawl which is obviously trying to look like EYE: Divine Cybermancy. Not even subtle about it. >>693823 >Doomsiders Forced meme.
Playing through a bunch of demos this realms deep none of them are bad but like the last couple of years this promise can just not be captilized on and I feel none of the games I've played demos of will release within a reasonable timeframe. Plus the released games while super fun just felt short of my expectations. Dusk was ok but I'd rather replay Quake instead while waiting for that totally all encompassing SDK to release. Amid Evil was pretty and not much else. Ion Fury was fun but I hated the enemy composition and weaponset. Neon White was good but I wanted more of it. shadow warrior 3 was mildly fun for some time and then a slog for the rest of it and I cannot be bothered to pirate Doom 2016 or Eternal because they're so large and it seems Eternal isn't fully cracked(for some of the later content). >>693918 >Digging deeper after the Phantom Fury reveal because it looked awesome >not voidpoint but Slipgate ironworks. >look around for information on Ion fury Aftershock >apparently voidpoint's working part time, without a budget on it which is why they couldn't show anything

Here's something that makes my head scratch - "simulating" suppression fire by blurring vision. This is somehow okay when it ruins gameplay by blinding you and making you crawl towards waist height wall to get cover. Some people even defend it as they laugh at cod with its jelly screen that does the same thing. Why do many newer games follow such shit?
>>696746 Dont think I have played any games with that kinda suppression blur. looks annoying as fuck though, I really hate it when games just in general block my view.
>>696746 >>696747 What if it's an simulator or half-simulator like squad, which does have blurring vision for near explosions.
Have you anons tried Severed Steel? I picked it up on sale after seeing a trailer for it it reminded me of Mirror's Edge which I loved. It's one part fast-FPS run and gun and 2 parts parkour stunt simulator with destructive environments and a pretty good soundtrack. Its hard as fucking balls on normal difficulty but I'm enjoying it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCR4QWG08xM
Seems like loads of great shooters are coming out. Like it's better than it's been in 15 years
(144.93 KB 1920x1080 Kane is not amused.jpg)

>>696746 Because it makes MGs actually useful for supression? It's not like you have actual life preservation in a videogame. In Battlefield 3 it actually made sense, and the moment they removed it in 4 and subsequent games, MGs became absolutely fucking useless shit. You're also posting a Tactical Shooter with Hell Let Loose you retard. In COD it makes no sense, it's a super arcade shooter where the balancing and gameplay is all about gun stats. You remind me of the Haloniggers that say that picking up items manually in Crysis with a dedicated animation was bad and that Crysis 2 and 3 did it better because you just walk over them. I hate this one size fits all bullshit, and your two images, one of a tactical shooter, and other of an arcade shooter is the epitome of that cancer. Reminds me of every RTS trying to be fucking Starcraft or ASSFAGGOTs instead of being their own thing. 7th Gen and AAA has rotten peoples brains.
>>696819 >You remind me of the Haloniggers that say that picking up items manually in Crysis with a dedicated animation was bad and that Crysis 2 and 3 did it better because you just walk over them. Wait, people actually bitch about stuff like that? I always attributed it to a design decision. -t. a "Halonigger"
>>696821 Yes, they're ADD ridden retards who don't care about immersion or interactivity.
>>696819 >7th Gen For all the shit I give 7th gen it's still less cancer then current gen by a long shot.
>>696935 Consoles have never recovered since then, in terms of games, much better outside AAA cancer.
>>696969 By that, I mean nowadays game are better in general.
>>696977 > game are better in general. Games are super dumbed down in general both indie and AAA wise.
>>697064 >Games are super dumbed down in general That was literally 7th Gen, if anything games have more depth now outside AAA, to the point old and new genres popped up again.

>>696819 >its good because its "realistic" >its tactical shooter, so its allowed >inhibiting vision in fps is okay when we do it Hell let loose actually does this pretty good, I should say. Suppression actually helps your squad push up and getting pinned down actually makes your other teammates instinctively defensive so you actually huddle and survive more often, rather than just be cut down by mg42. Maybe this got started from day of defeat.
>Prodeus has 4 player co-op I'm getting tempted here but the fact that the game has been in EA for years and hasn't gone on sale any lower than 15 bux bothers me a lot. Has anyone played it? Any good, shit, so-so?
>>697354 IIRC one of Valve's guidelines (as in recommended but unenforced) is that Early Access games aren't meant to go on sale or, if they do, not by much, because the point is not to make sales to the general audience but to people actually invested in the project or something.
>>697341 Yes, it's a fucking tactical shooter, not an arcade one, the whole point is immersion, even if it hurts your sole performance, you're supposed to act as a team. You don't want supression, communicate to your teammates to flank the MG. >DoD No, Day of Defeat never did this, that is also an arcade shooter, a team based arcade shooter, but an arcade shooter nonetheless. If anything MGs in that game are a pain in the ass as the sound they make is super low and due to Source jankery, it sometimes doesn't even make a sound outside the bullets hitting the geometry around you. First time I saw a game do this was Battlefield 3, and it did it well, but everyone bitched because by that point in time the franchise was nothing but CODkiddie faggots who started with Bad Company 2.
