What's Next For Shooters?
Shooters are a strong force in our videogame market place. Juggernauts like CoD and Halo have almost taken over the industry. Pretty astounding considering that 15 years ago people seemed to think that shooters were a stupid idea and the people didn't want that sort of thing. Boy, they couldn't be more wrong. Shooters dominate the Western Hemisphere, while games like Final Fantasy and Dark Souls, are really small around here. Kind of a shame considering that I grew up playing games like those. I wasn't until Doom and Quake that I saw the light, or at least the flash of light that would see before you'd hit the respawn button. But I thought (or hoped) that MW3 would fall flat on its face and the series would finally be done. Wrong again, the game would break all the records set by it's predecessor Black Ops
Perfect, now we can expect a sequel, and I haven't even played MW3. I don't see the shooter craze dying down anytime soon. The time of Swords and Spears is over. A new weapon is here, and I think it's going to be here for awhile.
