What will be the best upcoming FPS??

I go with Metro Last Light

But if Valve New IP is true than it will be best without a doubt. also looks forward to Arma 3. Crysis 3 will depend how good or dumbed down it will be

Slightly cautious about Last Light because of all the nazis. If they'll be the main point of the game I'll be disappointed.

Crysis 3 looks just like Crysis 2 gameplay-wise, so whatever.

Out of those i say Arma 3.

Just because you anticipate something doesn't mean you must be hyped for it.

Yeah, it seems kind of ridiculous that you actually skip the FPSes people are most looking forward to...

Of those, the game I most look forward to is ArmA 3. But I wouldn't call that an FPS anymore than I would call MechWarrior 4 an FPS.

In terms of personal interest... out of those options, HL3. But on a more realistic note, probably the Rise of the Triads remake. Although that's less of a "yay can't wait!!" and more of a "well, it's the only one that seems marginally interesting".

Indeed. I voted Arma 3, but it's a mil sim rather than a conventional FPS tbh.

I would say STALKER 2 or STALKER Lost Alpha or STALKERSOUP.
Then Last Light and Arma3.
I m not expecting anything from Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3. Crysis 2 looked amazing but was so boring.

edit: I am curious about Thief 4.

I imagine more than a few people, assuming you can stop bashing them for having a different opinion. I prefer the Crysis 2 gameplay, but BLOPS 2 is taking tried-and-true gameplay and advancing the "technology" from modern to near-future, and I vaguely recall there being a video of cyborg-horses or something. And it is the sequel to the CoD game with the most interesting story in the history of CoD...

It actually has the potential to be pretty good. Put your prejudices away for a moment and actually look at the game.

Its marketing. trying to make customers fool into buying it. there is nothing change in BLOPS 2. they are marketing as "sandbox game" lol. where is sandbox gameplay? all i see is same linear gameplay.

then corrupt mainstream media will praise it like best thing ever since slice bread. depend on how much money activision will pay

Metro 2033 was one of the most linear shooters in recent memory...

And fine, you are pissed at the "corrupt mainstream media" for telling people what to believe. Why are YOU doing the same? Let people make their own decisions, no matter how stupid.

LOL, good one.

I, for one, would like to see Halo 4 on the PC. The first game sort of exploded into Bungie's face and they clearly didn't know how to handle the popularity, the universe and the sequels, but if Halo 4 is going to be done by a different studio and clearly states it's a "new trilogy" then who knows?

Absolutely, there's nothing wrong with linear gameplay as long as the levels are well-designed. Metro was a great game and a pretty linear game too.

Exactly.

And as much as it pisses me off, the trend in modern military manshoots of "Wait here while we open the door/do the cool stuff" isn't even that bad. It is just another way to handle the magic barriers or path-opening cutscenes/triggers of older games. We didn't bitch that the wall wouldn't lower until we killed all the goats in DOOM. It is just that it is really annoying to have to wait for the guy with the beard or the mustache to come kick down a door for me.

It is all a matter of execution. There are no inherently bad tropes in game design*. It is all about how you implement them.

*: Yes, even QTEs. Go play the boss battles of God of War 3 or just about every QTE in Infamous 2. That is how you use QTEs to improve immersion.

I just got an email for the HMV Golden Joystick awards for 2012. Took a brief gander and no sign of either XCOM (not so surprising) or Dishonored - which has to be one of the most hyped games this year surely? That both are lacking is very disappointing to me. Even though I know that these awards always exclude so many relevant games as to render themselves totally meaningless (by the way, are you able to edit your poll, Diesel?), it still annoys me.

You know in a way it's funny how the "Ramirez do everything" meme and people complaining about having to watch "NPCs doing cool stuff" can both exist at the same time. Sometimes it's even same people.

You are right! If only there was some crazy dimension out there where two extremes could sort of meet in - and just bear with me hear, I'm spit-ballin - meet somewhere in the middle. Like, some sort of third way which isn't as shit as the two extreme ways of doing things?

Crazy ideas.

Nothing yet. Because we don't know anything important about ARMA 3 or Metro yet, Far Cry and Crysis are already looking awful, and Valve probably hasn't even started working on another FPS.

Close! Half LIfe 2 has some above ground stuff as well. I'd say Half LIfe 1 and Metro 2033 (the OPs favorite game, which is why everyone is subtly referring to it). Then there is Doom, then there is...

Wait, I think you are playing along with the joke and I am subtly missing it.

Its marketing. trying to make customers fool into buying it. there is nothing change in BLOPS 2. they are marketing as "sandbox game" lol. where is sandbox gameplay? all i see is same linear gameplay.


The idea behind the "Sandbox campaign" is that you can do several missions in any order, and your succes or failure affects the other missions in the campaign (so it's quite non linear) - It's a bit like Wing Commander, except less linear. Or Mechwarrior 4: Black Knight.


Metro 2033 is, of course, not a PC FPS.
Ehrm, it is out on PC. That makes it a PC FPS - Unless we are referring to PC Exclusive FPS, but nobody has thus far.


Doom is not heavily scripted.

When you design a car that should drive both offroad and on motorways, you don't do it by first designing a sports car and then re-engineering everything so it's driveable offroad. Your basic frame of work is always equal to your biggest limitation, so any multiplatform game will always be, at its core, a console game, because that's the biggest limitation.

Aaaaaanyway, there is no Far Cry 3 thread it seems and there's a new dev commentary out (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/10/19/now-with-more-jumping-puzzles-14-minutes-of-far-cry-3/) and... I like it. I like it a lot. Taking ground straight from Clear Sky, which will also eliminate one of the Far Cry 2's biggest drawbacks(constantly respawning enemies everywhere who never give up chasing you ever) and... hunting? Crafting? XP? Hot damn. It's like Skyrim with guns. That has potential. I just hope the options menu will be as extensive as the one in Dishonored.

On a side note, that was one of the best dev commentaries I've seen. No PR or script reading nonsense, just two guys talking about game one of them is playing in a casual fashion occassionally cracking a joke or two.

Metro feel nothing like COD. its dark and atmospheric. beside linearity there is no similarity. hack there is no MP. its basically linear Stalker

and also Far cry 3 looks like poor mans Crysis without nanosuit with arrow showing where enemies are....

Gorzan
19-10-2012, 10:57 AM
COD might not do that many things right nowadays, but they still know how to make an spectacular campaing, so I'd say COD is still atmospheric.
Of course that doesn't mean the MP is not shitty, and a 6 hours campaign isn't worth 50, but on the single-player side of things they are more similar than you acknowledge.

Grizzly
19-10-2012, 11:05 AM

Ehrm.
It has the same shooting mechanics (Hitscan weapons with ADS).
It also has the same inventory system.
It has the same level design. They are both heavily scripted shooters, with scripted events and all.

So it basically has the same gameplay and the same level design - it's just the package that is different. Same girl, different make up.

A linear STALKER is half the fun gone, there's more to Metro than that. I'm looking forward to it, but as others have said its not all that different from CoD in what the game actually does for the player. It does nothing for the genre, but that's actually ok. It can still be good.

Hawken. Apart from HL3/SOB/"whatever the fuck Valve is up to which is anyway a long way off" none of the rest of those games has me nearly as excited as Hawken.

Also Thief 4 and Bioshock Infinite (although the latest rumors around that one have me slightly concerned).
