RE4 is not a true TPS, but yes its the closest thing we have to one on the system.

Well the Wii doesn't have a ton of FPSs either. So there must be very little focus to go around. lol

Play Gears of War, Army of Two those are true TPS games. But Yeah Wii needs a quality TPS game, it's really sad that devs don't fulfill these needs.

There's Godfather and Scarface, but I'm not sure if those count as third person shooters, since they are mainly considered sandbox games.

Mostly because it's not all action like RE5, it has platforming qualities and puzzles within the game that TPS don't typically have.

From what I've heard, part of the problem is there isn't as big a demand for shooters (both first and third) on the Wii than the other consoles.

Some Disney game called G Force. It seems to be a third person shooter even though the weapons need work.

When thinking about it, THere is no real good reasons to have a third person shooter on the Wii. I keep thinking, and it would be too hard to keep up with the selecting units, training/making/etc., so why make a game that would be so hard to use.

Nintendo is coming out with Mario Paintball. That looks pretty fun

[spoiler] total joke [/spoiler]

I wish we did have more tps though. Tomb Raider is a tps somewhat imo, it's a good game, but I haven't heard many people mention it, I'm guessing most likely it being a port.

Makes me wish Uncharted would make a debut on the system.

Parts of Link's Crossbow Training had 3rd-person shooter elements, but it was mostly on-rails.

Huh? It looks almost like you're mixing up TPSwith RTS. Third-person shooters are just shooters from an over-the-shoulder perspective, like Gears of War orCrackdown. Some quality Wii third-person shooters would be nice.

Really can't think of any TPS's for the Wii, seems that FPS's have taken over the shooter genre.

I would've said because it doesn't play in first-person.

Why? Because GoW and Army of Two have a cover system?

The "puzzles" are about as difficult as tying your shoelaces. Gears of War has an active reload minigame. Guess it's not a TPS then... So let me get this straight, if you try to do anything remotely new or add in any slightly novel thing, your game no longer qualifies in the genre?

Third. Person. Shooter. Are you shooting for most of the game - is that the main focus? Can you see your character on screen? Then it's TPS. There are many flavours of TPS. Saying that RE4 is not TPS is like saying that the chocolate ice cream in the cone you're holding is not chocolate ice cream because it has a cherry on top.

What's next? Any game that features a non-human character cannot be considered Third PERSON Shooter?

It is also a horror game. Remember we are not talking about RE5 here. RE4 still was somewhat of a horror game.

Really? You were actually scared by the game? RE hasn't been a horror game since the early games. Only if you're a complete wuss like me did you ever get scared during RE4, and only at two parts. I'm terrible with horror games - just cannot play them - and yet I got through RE4 just fine. It's not survival horror, and regardless, it's still TPS. It would just be in a certain sub-genre of TPS, which is a broad category.

Who is ever really scared in a horror game. IF anything a horror game is successful if it can emulate a feeling near horror like shock and thrill. Rarely do horror games genuinely scare people. RE4 did have some horror elements in it where RE5 had almost none. If anything it turned more into to an action game. To say its a regular TPS is a misunderstanding of the genre

Do explain it then to us ignorant folk then, what Third Person Shooters strictly entail other than people shooting in third person.

From what I've seen, Rogue Trooper seems like the best "true" third person shooter.

I really like games like Uncharted/Tomb Raider...but I still think there's something missing from them. I don't know what that thing is...but hopefully I can figure it out one day.

TPS can branch out into many different types which is awesome. I hope the Wii gets some good ones in it's lifetime.
