I have seen lot of people claim that games were better 10 years ago and 10 years ago was 2010 so i decide to research about it.
first we have map design of 2010 most FPS games were
almost every FPS game back in 2010 fall under that category especially we got 2 of most scripted FPS of that time were COD black ops and MOH 2010.
literally the only great FPS of 2010 was Metro 2033 and even that was quite scripted but was unique and innovative game that time.
aside from that we also got most dumbed down splinter cell game, and we got mass effect 2 that was most overrated game of that time.
compare that to 2020, we are getting Doom Eternal next month and its map design more resemble former one than later one, with finding secrets etc and not just walking in straight line. so compare Doom Eternal to Black ops lol. day and night difference.
2010 Halo reach was mediocre console shooter while 2020 Halo infinite will be a proper PC FPS for first time in history and more of semi open ended
we are getting most ambitious game that is Cyberpunk. it was not possible in 2010.
I just never understand how can anyone miss the dark time of gaming in general. if you ask me if gaming was better 15 years ago then i would say YES!!. 2004 to 2007 was golden age. but 10 years ago? lol.
so my friends, do you missed gaming 10 years ago? lets discuss
