    Ok very nice touch. Now to start FPS have always been my favorite type of games Racing next then RPG’s. FPS Showpeople and let people feel like they are either in battle (Ex. Halo Series Call of Duty Series…) or just in the mix of whatever theme the game has. Now this to me brings a great chance for 3D graphics and other multimedia advancements… adding to that Some downsides to FPS’s I mean your limited to your vision. The enemy may be able to see you but to you you just got shot out of no where. ONE MAJOR THING! please dont use FPSing games to heart ok fine example would be the Columbine High School Shootings and the Virgina Tech incident. Now these people got their ideas and partial skills from learning them off FPSers. Just be responsible and know that these are games and should not be put into real life situations. EVER (when dealing with your life and other peoples lifes that is.)

    I wanna know why there isn’t a review for Dragon Age: Origins or Need for Speed Shift. Cause those are very good games(even though I only played the demo of Need for Speed) and came out before MW2 (which probably the reason why).

    the reason is that we have not been doing game reviews for a long amount of time. If you want to do a review on a game feel free to. Part of the fun of this place is that if you think something is missing, you can add it in.

    Modern warfare 2 is epic. Meeting ajourned to play more MW2 :D. But seriously MW2 had enough in preorders to be one of the best selling games of all time.

    FPS games really arent my thing but owning a 360 there is no way around not playing them.Its basically what sells the system most of the time.Ive grown to liking them but id still prefer my action platformers to stay 3rd person IMO.

    To be honest the only game i wanted when i first got my xbox 360 was halo 3 because it was the hottest game out there and now its MW2. I came into gaming with the impression that FPS were great and have kept that thought since. They just keep getting better. Not to say I dont like other games though.

    I had that same feeling. I was brought into gaming by my friend when I stayed at his house one night. He had a regular xbox, and halo 2. Well you can guess where things went from there. I havent really played any games other than first person shooters since. One of my favorite games of all time, ratchet and clank, is a third person shooter though. It just depends on the game I guess. I mean Halo 3 wouldnt be to good of a third person shooter now would it?

  • I don't think Halo 3 would be, but I do think that ODST would be a great 3rdPS.
