101Airborne;3168177I think we can give an extremely good explaination to this problem. A lot of people that play FPS games are usually younger (Say 10-13) and only like those games because you can shoot people. How else do you explain 11 or 12 year olds playing GTA? Also, THINKING, STRATAGIES, many people also don't want to think about what they're doing, just randomly shoot off into space, and charge into crowds, often killing their own teammates (more often than not), and not want to flank the enemy, suppress them, think intelligently, things like that. I think it's the society, not the game. Personaly, I absolutely LOVE BiA. But the major part of society buys games for just the shooting. Example: Someone I knew at school had bought COD- Big Red 1 and talking about " I climbed up a ladder and I saw a bunch of Nazi's, so I got my gun and it went BRAAAAAAAAAP! and they all died." Sadly that is the society we live in. The people no longer care about the lives within a game. Take BiA Earned in Blood, on the last map when Doyle got hit, and Paige dragged me off, and you could see Hartsock grabbing towards the bloodstained road, Most people would just laugh, or say I don't get it, but I felt that, I had gotten so into the game and into the characters, that I just stared at the screen for about 20 seconds after Paige and Doyle died. And I think that's what the BiA developers want, if they had more consumers like us, then we wouldn't have this problem, so In my eyes, the game is NOT dead, it's our society. And the way they think. Sorry for being so long winded, but there are a lot of arrogant people out there that just **** me off with that "I shot someone crap". BTW I'm only 14, I just act really mature for my age.
In the Xbox version Paige is the one who gets hit by the tank shell and Doyle drags you off. When I saw that it shocked me. I just wasn't expecting that. Yeha I know wha you mean by the society. It seems that no one cares about our veterans. That really ticks me off.
Yes, Maybe it is dead but most times there are 2 or 3 people online you can game with. And in the evening you can play with more people 20... So it does not matter if the game is dead. It is a good game but you have to practice and nobody does that.
