When it comes to shooters, I'm a Gears man. I prefer the 3rd person over the shoulder shooters to the FPS.
I haven played call of duty since Battlefield 3 came out. I used to play COD religiously. I like you got tired of paying money for the exact same game over and over again. I bought gears of war but never got into it. BF3 was the last game I bought. Probably won't buy another game unless they release a new Battlefield

I used to love the CoD games but the single player story was never long enough so I ended up just going straight to multiplayer with MW2.

I haven't picked up my ps3 controller in months now. Have a 9 month old at home, so that's pretty much my free time.

Not to derail this thread but here's what my perfect game would be:

A first/third person shooter with RPG style play. Anyone remember Age of Empires or Civilization? I want a modern day game like that, where you build your own objects and gather resources, then defend and attack other bases. But here's the twist: you play as a certain character and at any time you can go into first person mode and attack other players like a FPS. Maybe you have to complete missions along the way to "level up" and get more access to guns and resources.

Think Age of Empires meets Grand Theft Auto meets Call of Duty.

Someone build that and I will waste all my free time playing it.

I still like playing COD multiplayer, especially while just sitting around having a few beers with the guys, but I've stopped falling for the "buy this year's game, now with NEW GUNS AND KILLSTREAKS!!!" business model. The campaign mode doesn't really interest me much, aside from a quick play-through to pick up achievements.

I've wanted something like that since playing the Star Wars Battlefront games (I was a huge fan of AOE as well). The main interface would be a real-time strategy game, but you could pick an individual character and zoom in to their viewpoint, say for raiding bases or sniping enemies from behind the frontlines. Surely the idea has come up before, but I'm guessing no one has pursued it because of the difficulty of creating basically two separate game engines (RTS and FPS), making a way to slip seamlessly between the two, and fitting it all on a disc.

Anyone know a game developer?

Not what you are looking for, but Herzog Zwei actually let you distribute programmable battle bots to do certain tasks while you orchestrate the overall offensive (or defensive) but at any time you can jump in and assist the bots with any minor battle you want. You don't change characters, but you can jump in and out of battles. I wasted countless hours playing that.

I get absolutely KILLED in multiplayer. Guys shred me in the time it takes to focus in on their general area.

I am missing something. The wiimote is probably harder to play on since the gun is only as stable as your hand (like in reality) but these guys must be using wiimotes too.

I can't even tell if the auto targeting works I get killed so fast.

I get it now. You get more helpful shlt the more you play, and keep the "focus in" button on or close all of the time.

On the Wii, I noticed that weapon level matters A LOT. Once you get higher in level you can actually shoot from the hip with some success.

Just got an xbox and I'm rocking BO3. If I ever hit even on the K, I'm doing great. I'm a fricken bullet magnet.
