>there are those on /v/ that actually hate the greatest TPS games of all time
Explain yourselves right now. Gears of War literally perfected the genre.
Because its a console shooter, /v/ hates console shooters on principle because they are mindless zealots lol. Personally enjoyed the campaigns and found the mp mediocre.
>gruff, muscle bound white guys murdering and killing and shooting things with realistic blood and violence
Wow, it's almost like we haven't had this exact same thing repeated over ten billion times.
Let me guess, it also has a focus on online multiplayer and killstreaks and leaderboards.
>Metrosexual, animu haired teenagers swinging swords and using magic with unrealistic blood and violence
>Wow, it's almost like we haven't had this exact same thing repeated over ten billion times.
Let me guess, it also has a focus on saving the world, a kawaii uguuu FeMC and hokey dialogue with a forced in love story.
Multiplayer is the least generic thing. There aren't killstreaks, who gives a fuck about leaderboards?, and there's a huge emphasis on weapon control (similar to arena shooters that /v/ loves so much)
Good job judging a game without ever playing it though.
>Squad of soldiers stand around and see who can come up with the best one liners while everything goes to shit but they are so blinding by being fucking manly they can't understand how fucked everything is
name one other game like this
it came out on the PC in 2007
I own every installment of Gears of War (Gears 1-3 on 360, 1 on PC and "ultimate" on bone) and it's really only fun because of local/online co-op and semi-decent multiplayer.
Why do beaners love gears of war so much?
Literally every match is at least 1/3 beaner
It created a subgenre of tps unto itself
TPS games under went the same conversion FPS
They went from speed, aggressive play and reflexes to slow, tactical cover system shit
Gears is fun in its own way but the playstyle was distinct enough at the time and has been copied so much since that it can hardly be called the end all be all of TPS. I personally like games like Max Payne where you're given some kind special ability the enemies don't have, where you're encouraged to constantly move and you can do cool unrealistic shit.
Also, HP meters > regenerating health. Fite me
If you think that's bad try out Killzone games. Over half the population is either hispanics or brazilians.
There's just something about that game that seriously attracts those types of people and I have no idea what it could be.
>Also, HP meters > regenerating health. Fite me
It just depends on the game honestly. Some games work better with hp meters and others work better with regenerating health. It's dumb to say that one style of health should fit all games.
Gears of War can be both very slow and extremely fast. In fact Gears is faster than most if not all TPS games out there.
It's not Gears fault that everyone copied them in a shitty way. Gears cover is more to wall bounce if you are the type that plays faster. Which most players in Gears will be playing at Sonic speed.
