PSXE Poll Update: Not A Whole Lotta FPS Fans 'Round Here
Don't get the wrong idea. The crowd at PSXE isn't so much anti-Call of Duty as it is anti-shooter-in-general.
Which isn't to say the readers are "against" the genre; it's just that we don't seem to have a whole lot of shooter fans, which is fine by us. We kinda like being a little different in that way. Me, I like my FPSs but because I really don't play online, I'm hardly what you would call a big-time fan.
As for the two major shooters coming out this fall, while Call of Duty: Black ops II received more than double the number of votes Medal of Honor: Warfighter got, the majority of participants said they don't plan to purchase either. This week, we'll try another "whatcha gonna buy" poll; it focuses on the two big fighting titles slated for September: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Dead or Alive 5. I'll assume TTT2 will win just 'cuz this is a PlayStation-oriented website and Tekken is quintessentially PlayStation. But you never know...I can sense the DoA fans out there...
P.S. We'll go back to the User Review contest (which will just keep going) in a few weeks. During the slow summer months, there isn't a whole lot coming out to inspire the amateur critics out there, and...uh...I kinda need more stuff to give away, right? ;)
