I don't like first person shooting games.
There I said it.
I won't go so far to say that they are bad, I'm sure they aren't bad at all, some may even be great.
I still don't like them.
Why you ask? Okay, I'll be nice and answer your question.
1. The first reason is that I just can't get over the fact that I have a neck. I can turn my neck very quickly and automatically, I don't even have to think about it. How awesome is that! My character in a first person game can't do that. That bothers me.
2. The next problem is similar to the first. See, I have peripheral vision which allows me to see (albeit not clearly) almost 180 degrees in front of me. I like that I can see out of the corner of my eye, but I can't in a first person shooter.
3. I don't like to play online. The biggest draw for many first person shooting fans is the online aspect. I don't have friends that play first person shooters and I have zero desire to play against Internet trolls. If you are a troll, I'm sure you're very nice troll but I don't want to play against you.
4. First person makes me feel less connected to the character That I'm playing. Many people say the feel more connected, but not me. I know I'm not the guy with the massive gun and well... massive guns.
So there, I've laid out the fundamental reasons for why I don't like first person shooters. Remember, I'm not saying they are bad games, they are just not the game for me.
