Is this the end for large-scale team shooters?
>>638416390No, it is not necessarily the end for large-scale team shooters. While the gaming industry is constantly evolving and new trends emerge, there is still a significant player base and demand for large-scale team shooters.The popularity of large-scale team shooters has fluctuated over the years, with different games and genres rising to prominence at different times. Battle royale games like Fortnite and Apex Legends have gained significant popularity in recent years, but that doesn't mean traditional large-scale team shooters are no longer relevant.There are still successful and active games in the genre, such as Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege, and Battlefield, which continue to attract a dedicated player base. These games offer unique gameplay mechanics, diverse characters, and tactical team-based experiences that appeal to many gamers.Additionally, developers are constantly innovating and finding new ways to engage players in team shooter experiences. They may introduce new features, modes, or mechanics to keep the genre fresh and exciting.While the gaming landscape may change, it's important to remember that different genres can coexist and cater to different player preferences. The popularity of large-scale team shooters may ebb and flow, but there will likely always be a market for this type of game as long as players enjoy the intense teamwork, strategic gameplay, and competitive multiplayer experiences they offer
>shit the bed with battlefield games not once, not twice, but fucking 3 times in a row>well, I guess people don't like large-scale shooters anymore since our mismanaged bug filled piece of literal horeshit didn't sell t. EA suitsHow could this happen...
When was the last one of these that actually ran well and wasn't buggy out the ass?
FPS = Faggot Poofters' Shitware
>>638416390I was really surprised to look up that middle article and see it's from this year. I had no idea anyone still played BC1
>>638416752metadoom is still epic
>>638416752This. I only play third person shooters where i play as a cute girl so i can look at her and pretend to be her. FPS "games" make nauseous.
>>638416390I hope not, I hate the "5v5 super serious competitive just like my favorite esports!" style games.
>>638416752We get it you only play RPGs
>>638416942I wonder why this is true
>>638417270You're welcome! I'm glad I could assist you. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Enjoy your gaming!
>>638417389it's just easier on the ego to get stomped in one
>>638417389With more players, individual actions carry less weight. You can feel helpful and instrumental in winning a battlefield match even if you place near the bottom of the leaderboard. With a game with less players (say 5v5), every action is super impactful. If you make a mistake, you heavily fuck your team over. And likewise, a good enemy play can completely annihilate your teams chance of winning. This can't happen in large scale games.
>>638418025>>638418546Thanks anons, I think I understood this intuitively, but found it difficult to put into wordsI enjoyed my time playing BF4 and BF1 for these reasons, H&G as well, to a lesser extentI'm hoping I can get my fix for that sort of "one small guy helps a big team" gameplay from the new Starship Troopers game that came outHave you been playing anything that scratches that particular itch?
All multiplayer pvp games are ruined anyway. Cheaters won the arms race.
>>638419364I fear you are right, anonWithout community servers, I think this problem really can't be solvedIf a cheater joins your own community server, you can recognize him and ban him after enough reports or moderators taking a look at his gameplayAAA won't ever give up the control that matchmaking gives them, and cheating software based on image capture and machine learning-based target recognition just isn't detectable in the same way software injection type stuff is
>>638416572kys contrarian nigger bf1 was dope
>>638419703You kind of have to resort to private matchmaking services or finding pug communities. This is hard to get into if you're not good or don't have connections and they're still full of microtogglers and habitual espers.
>>638419364They won when Community Servers fell out of practice
>>638420029I suppose I don't mind access being difficult, it is a better solution than I could think upSomehow, it feels like a return to the natural way things should be. To keep a cosy place cosy, you have to stop letting just anyone in. Especially when the quality of people coming through town is dipping low.
I'm still mad
>>638419156>Have you been playing anything that scratches that particular itch? Honestly I haven't found a newer game that comes close. Battle royal games are meant to fill the "large scale fps" nieche, but they don't feel the same at all. Personally I still go back and play BF4 pretty often. It's not hard to find a full server. The magic is a bit lost though, as generally the servers are full of people who never left, and go 150-0 in a tank with their 50k hours experience after all these years.
>>638419823>using racism to defend woke garbage

>>638416390The modern zoomer is an identity-obsessed brand-builder, as such, the concept of being part of something larger than themselves and is borderline offensive to them.Zoomers don't want to be one small part of a massive team effort, they want to be the singular driving force at the front-and-center, recieving all of the praise and all of the glory, however, they also want insulation from accusations of failiure, hence why a 5v5 format is the ideal zoomer game: there's just enough people that you can blame them when you fail, but not enough people to "steal your thunder" when you succeed.
