To elaborate, I tried the BF3 beta and enjoyed it. I really don't mind BF3 or even COD style gameplay. It can be fun. It just sucks that it's really the only option right now.Exactly, I'd just like something different, a return to twitch based games with modern technology would be what I would like to see.
But what I was really getting at was it's the setting more than the game play that is killing me right now. I played years upon years of CS so the whole modern thing was kind of played out for me right from the get go.
It just sucks that I have to rely on a 3rd person/RPG hybrid like Mass Effect to get a shooter that isn't set in some "realistic" modern middle east conflict.
