People Can Fly
When I buy a first person shooter I know exactly what I’m getting into gameplay wise. For me the reason I play them is primarily for the story, which to be honest isn’t a major part of most FPS games nowadays. They’ve mostly done away with the story and focused on pure multiplayer elements. Now I’m not saying this is the case with every FPS there is, there are still those that have a good story line, but let’s be honest most of the stories are sub-par compared to other genres.
Your idea of a good story and mine could vary by a lot, so I’m not going to list off games that I like and think stand out above the rest. The only reason I bring up the lack of story is because that wasn’t what drew my attention to Bulletstorm in the first place, it was the gameplay.
The idea of having a real time indicator of the carnage that I’d be unleashing intrigued me. So at midnight on February 21st, I went to GameStop and picked up both Bulletstorm and Killzone 3, then quickly rushed home, popped in Bulletstorm, loaded it up, and began.
