I forced myself to play through Earthbound, and it was a pretty enjoyable game. It did take me a couple starts though.

Yeah, I've started it 3 or 4 times, i'll probably never go back to it though.

eh, not really. The Half-Life series is amazing. As is Halo. Goldeneye? Doom? Bioshock? FarCry?

I can understand not preferring FPS, but I wouldn't say they suck. Just like I personally don't care for games like Command and Conquer and Civilization, but I know they are great games on their own. Not my cup of tea.

I dunno, I think they are both two of the finest games of that genre (classic RPGs). I think you should def give it a try.

I think Secret of Mana is amazing and didn't like the little bit of Earthbound that I played if that helps.

They have been getting more stale lately though. Its harder to find a high quality FPS than many other genres.

I've kindly created a pie chart that compares the types of games you are referring to (COD, BF, etc) to the FPS genre as a whole.

Image

In other words, your broad statements about the FPS genre would be the same as me saying that every single Nintendo Wii game is characterized by the following:


"EHHHHH WELL DONE THELMA! ANOTHER STRIKE! ONE MORE STRIKE AND WE WILL FINISH OFF BELLEVUE NURSING HOME IN OUR WEEKLY WII TOURNAMENT!!"

or

"IF I KEEP WALKING IN PLACE, I'LL LOSE THIS 150 POUNDS IN NO TIME!"

I agree that most FPS suck, but to even use this as a point of argument in gaming is silly. Of course the people playing longer are going to be better than the ones that haven't. Me and my cousin smoke just about anyone in EASHL, but there's dudes that have a thousand more games than us and understandably destroy us.

Your judging of an entire genre by two or three games is disappointing...you're better than that.

HERP DERP, QUEST 64 AND SHADOW MADNESS ARE TERRIBLE, ERGO, ALL RPGS SUCK.

Although, I wouldn't be surprised if you actually enjoyed Quest 64 :slug:

The games canaan is talking about are the most popular FPS games, the ones you're talking about even some RPG fans may not recognize. :pop:

RPGs are just too long and confusing to me. I remember I had one as a kid called Legacy of the Wizard. I probably owned for 3 or 4 years before I figured out how to get out of the opening screen (there was a hidden ladder/stairwell).

I recently tried playing Link to the Past and got bored talking to people. Same with Fable 3 when it was free last month.

I mean, RPGs are easily my favorite genre, but I can appreciate other genres as well. I don't really play COD THAT much (even though I'm awesome at it).

I'm actually playing through Half Life Episode One right now, and my current multiplayer game is LFD 2.

You know the ones you are referring to. I mean, I can't really stand a lot of the PWN0RS that play those games either, fwiw.
