    LOL Awesome article. MGS4 PMCs are classic, coming up on their fallen comrades, stopping to see someone who's clearly already dead--"YOU HIT?!"

    thanks for the tips

    Great article. The photoshoppery was very well done. I was actually hoping for tips on playing evil without hating yourself in games like Fallout 3 but the comedic/commentary on enemy ai angle = good stuff.

    to gernboes: They said use UNmanned gun emplacments, as in connect an indestructible computer to a gun, give it ammo, and then duck and cover when the enemy comes (for a few seconds while the gun automatically mows the enemy down to everyone: One of the best articles in a long time, with a lot of good suggestions for future articles like this one (possibly for CPU helper characters)

    Haha, No tanks in view.

    Shouldn't this be how to be a better FPS bad guy? No mention of platformer bad guys, shooter (shmup, you kids call them,) or any of the other genres that do still exist, though you have to look hard for them, they hide behind cover better than Nazis do.

    Don't soon forget this one either: If you see 3 or more of your comrades dying in the same place, don't charge that place! Your enemy may have found a defensible postion from which to pick you and yours off! Consider an alternate route.

    hmmm, so hide BEHIND cover you say?

    And maybe you shouldn't yell "grenade!" every time you're gonna, ya know, throw a grenade.

    I agree with Gernboes. Happens all the time in Call of Duty. Now, if only a game like CoD made AI this smart... that'd be tough.
