Sooo, Call of Duty is basically a Storm Trooper training tool.

How is the single player?

My two nephews fired at least 1 quadrillion shots just this summer. I've never played the game, and I know waaay more about it that I'd ever care to.

There's a single player?

BF3 single player was OK.  I've played through 2 or 3 times for shiats and giggles.  Th earthquake in Iran/Iraq which lights a fire under the story is an interesting premise.

25 billion hours and 100 million players and maybe 1 crazy who shot up a theater in a Joker theme.

Geotpf: All Modern Brown Shooters bore me.


There's still one I would recommend for the single-player: Spec Ops: The Line.

It does a pretty good job of calling out your standard modern shooter tropes and can make you feel like a remorseless dick by the end.
 
2013-08-13 05:50:56 PM  
Big whoop. Chicago has that many shots fired in a 3-day weekend.

Borderlands 2 does a pretty good job of not being 24/7 brown blah too. That and I much prefer co-op to competitive games these days. Constant stat tracking seems to make people take their games way to seriously these days. Oh look, I've just been called a name again, only the 178th time this hour.
 
2013-08-13 05:54:32 PM  
Yes but does the game allow the player to use Kentucky Windage?

/3 Marines deciding whether the AR-15 is better than the AK-47 stop long enough to complain that the Marine Corp doesn't teach Kentucky Windage anymore and that females always place higher in marksmanship than males do.

I'm not sure I want to be depressed by a video game, either.

Well, no WONDER there's an ammo shortage in the US!

25 billion hours
32 quadrillion shots

That's over a million shots per hour (for one person). That's 355 per second, assuming nonstop firing.

Seems legit.

Borderlands 2 is one of my favorite games.  It is not a Modern Brown Shooter.  It takes place far in the future and is not brown.

Hey, at least it makes you feel something.

dualplains: Well, no WONDER there's an ammo shortage in the US!


No, that's Obama's fault.

Seriously, it actually is.

Well, to be more precise it's paranoid Republicans (fearing mythical actions that the Obama administration will never actually take) buying up all the ammo, but still...
 
2013-08-13 06:02:07 PM  
I'm glad I looked up the meaning of "brown shooter". I thought this was turning into a poop thread.
 
2013-08-13 06:02:14 PM  
Two Chicago jokes and no Detroit ones?  Huh?

There's nothing funny about Detroit.
It makes black ops II look like a Georges Seurat painting.

Let me know when they get a running tally of swears/slurs screamed out after getting noob-toobed or somesuch.  Now THAT I would like to see...

Arma 2 (or 3, I guess) is worth buying just to screw with the editor. Nothing like watching (and participating in) 50 on 50 helicopter battles.
 
2013-08-13 06:42:15 PM  
Black Ops 2 has me stymied on like the second level where I have to control a whole squad by remote and defend 3 different positions from attack.  I gave up after a few tries.  I want my FPS back.

I'll just hide behind this wall for three seconds. Healed up in a jiffy.

Detroit makes BF3's Endgame maps look pleasant and peaceful.

How many 'gay camping sniping gay hacking gays' were recorded? Also how many people had sexual relations with other players mothers?

Shakin_Haitian: I'll just hide behind this wall for three seconds. Healed up in a jiffy.


That's what always made me laugh about modern shooters.  The fanboys all scream "Realism!  Only two guns!  Most accurate gun and vehicle models EVAH!!!" but still want regenerating health.

/Resistance 3 was such a fun trip down nostalgia lane

I've really tried to get into CoD. I've played most of the games, and they are just absolutely terrible to me compared to Halo, especially on a competitive basis. I know Halo has pulled a lot of the Call of Duty stuff into the game but it's still like 400 times more playable to me than CoD. Most of the time I play CoD I'm struggling to understand how some camper on the killcam shot me through a wall from 100 feet away.

Really liking Halo 4 right now, although H2/H3 were really the apex of the series.

46% and 44%.

Halo 4 pissed me off for one main reason. They nerfed the Forge. I spent a majority of my Halo: Reach time on Forge mode just building random maps. I made a badass go-cart one my friends and I would play for hours. Made another one that was a golf course. They removed the Forge World, so you were basically stuck with the standard maps everyone played anyway but you could add some objects or vehicles if you wanted.

Other than that, yea I've had fun with Halo 4. Specifically Grifball. Nothing like finding a team that actually knows how to work together and dominating for a while.

I concur. I'm playing through again, even though I know what's up ahead, it doesn't get any easier

I haven't played that in months. Did they come out with new stuff?

VSauce has a great breakdown of just how staggeringly popular CoD is right now:
