I really, really want this question answered by everyone that moans about Call Of Duty always being the same and not "Feeling" Any different. So my question is this, FPS games involve staring down the barrel of a gun, how can you make an FPS game feel different?
Two words: Far Cry 3.
Two words that didn't answer my question at all. If your going to chuck the title of another game at me at least give me what aspects of it you enjoyed and think could be used in Call Of Duty.
Ah yes where do I begin.
The thing is FPS games don't involve just staring down the barrel of a gun, of course it's the main theme but Call of Duty doesn't expand on it.
Far Cry 3 showed what FPS games can truly achieve. Let's see combine a GTA style environment in an FPS and boom you have a great game and Far Cry 3 did exactly that. The graphics were great that was one, but some aspects were the fact that it was open-world, taking over territories, hunting animals. driving cars etc.
I am not saying that COD should copy FC 3 but try to redeem itself, my idea is. You can select a country from a small list to control in Single Player. I think this feature was in a previous COD game but very limited (COD 1 I think?) and go about their storyline and the SP shouldn't just be about fighting. You can buy guns from shops you pass. You can nuke rival countries/factions, hack into their databases, of course these and many more will be possible with the next-gen consoles.
Activision did the right think with COD 4, which remains as one of my favorite FPS games ever made. They completely changed the theme from World War 2 to a modern war story, fantastic story, fantastic graphics, awesome multiplayer. But they never did the same afterwards, think has anything major changed since then?
