THQ - Call of Duty has stamped out memories of great first-person shooters

“I think it’s probably very true to say that there’s reaction to what used to be a small subset of the genre of a military shooter, which has ballooned and mushroom-clouded to almost define the genre, and kind of stamp out memories of what I remember being great about first person shooters, whether that was Half Life, System Shock or GoldenEye – where a first person shooter didn’t necessarily have to involve military material, it just meant an invitation to a fantastic other world, which to me was always the point of video games in the first place.” - THQ’s head of global communications Huw Beynon

I do have to admit that I've been bored with military FPS titles for years now. Let's hope other devs are feeling the same way.
