Games like clunky buggy low budget STALKER and METRO series ruined FPS games...IMO. Weapon Jamming in middle of big firefight with fps drops on above games is called immersion now. Scavenging resources for Bullets ? HaHa. Putting Lights on/off for no reason unlike in stealth games where you put lights off for a valid reason (Spilnter Cell). STALKER, METRO are Hardcore? 'Someone' clearly never played Counter Strike. Artoym and Strelok are manly? Cate Archer alone owns them inspite being a female.

Anyways, wish Devs would publish more cinematic, regenrating health, QTE, Casual, Womens as protagonists FPS games as WOLFENSTEIN YOUNG BLOOD.

Well?

Discuss my freinds.

Agreed. Games with terrible mechanics aren't hardcore, they're just bad games.

Sometimes I wonder what some folks are thinking when they are creating new threads. You have yet to demonstrate in any fashion how either games "ruined" FPS.

What do you say when a thread is simply dumb?

The thread is another jab at ghosts4ever. You missed the point.

Ghost trolling is even more tedious and predictable than his threads at this point

is this thread aimed at Ghost? His opinion is valid just like everyone else and he shouldn't be trolled for it.

@worlds_apart: I disagree. The guy spams the forum with the same threads about the same games and shit over every game he doesn't like.

LOL. STALKER is so much better than any games you praise like childish kingdom hearts. calling it terrible mechanics because it doesnot have regen health and cover system. or why my target not hitting enemy easily??

STALKER is actually greatest exclusive ever made. mods make it perfect.

Never played Stalker but for me Halo and the COD series ruined the FPS genre by dumbing it down by their influence. I mean for god sakes look what it did to the Battlefield series. The medics in the old games use to mean something now everybody's health regenerates and gets a medic pack lol. I really wish BF would go back to it's roots but sadly it will never happen because people would complain that it's to hard man I miss the Battlefield 2 days.

STALKER released same year as COD4. and missing this game means you missed out greatest FPS game ever made.

beside I never liked BF simply because I hated MP FPS games. so battlefield going to roots wont do anything for me.

Lol at the thought that these two games had an affect on the greater FPS genre at all.

You guys are seriously out of touch with reality.

I saw the videos of the gameplay back in the day it just looked to buggy for me but I respect that it's not a dumbed down FPS. For me the best FPS shooter of all time is F.E.A.R. to each it's own.

Metro is slightly overrated. It's alright, but not something I personally would put of a pedestal as an all great.

Stalker is flawed, but gives us a gimps of what gaming can be. I think many gamers now probably would rate it over Bethesda, Bioshock and other ilk. Hell, Bioshock: Infinite is all but forgotten after all the waffle.

The press didn't really latch onto it, and generally still don't, but as time went on it became more and more apparent as something that struck a cord. There really is nothing like it still. It succeeds in being an immersive experience competitors haven't managed to best.

I bought the Metro collection for ps4, a long time ago. Tried the first disc and it was boring. What is it that people like about the series. Its a cod clone. Killzone was better, and thats not saying much.
