why on earth do people seem to prefer CRAPPY shooter games like COD and battlefield over tactical shooters like ghost recon future soldier and rainbow six siege? those games are FAR better due to ONE aspect game makers seem to REFUSE to put into most... a strategic COVER FIRE ability!!! the simple ability to aim at someone WHILE taking cover but at the loss of accuracy... you know, like people would do in REAL LIFE. i HATE that frickin 1800's redcoats pop up mole crap they all wanna use where ur either STANDING STRAIGHT UP like an EFFIN idiot and getting shot or are ducked down and can't shoot anyone unless u strife out or stand up like a moron! i mean if you were to put that ability in ANY of those games, it would make them OH MY GAH INFINATLY better!!! you wouldn't even HAVE to use the ability if u didn't wanna! but INSTEAED they just OMIT the ability for those of us who WANT to use it. you have no IDEA how crazy this drives me!!!
i just hate how the tactical shooter genre is so SEVERILY neglected by developers. i mean its super rare that they decide to develop a new game in tactical form
COD and Battlefield aren't crappy games, they are very well made. FPS like COD has a large community so the online play is highly competitive which would make a lot of people play them all the time.
Games like Ghost Recon, which seems you want to put on such a high pedestal, are just different games. They are tactical and hence they are harder to pick up meaning less appeal to casuals. It's all really a matter of taste, doesn't mean one is better than the other.
it is what it is, for the most part COD gets more players because its easy to get into. I don't play COD myself but I wouldn't call it crappy. All gamers have different tastes some like twitch, others tactical and for some mil-sim
I'd say that adding those features would make the game better in your opinion, you've got to remember the games the COD orginated from, those old school twitchers didn't have or need any cover fire ability and if it were added to them it would ruin their feel , their flow
I like the casual games better. I do have cod but I don't play it that much. There's too much going on in it. I kind of just got it for the zombies lol. My favorite is halo and then I really liked rainbow six Vegas 2. I like the tactical part of the game.
Lol you should see star wars battlefront, people will actually charge out there and LITERALLY JUST STAND THERE and just starting shooting like crazy :D No strategy at all makes me laugh every time. Anyways people like COD because its so simple, that's why there's always little kids playing it
