100 reasons fanboys hate shooters

Cue the banjo! It wouldn’t be the Week of Hate without our trademark “100 Reasons” videos. In case you missed it, last year we targeted game platforms. So this year we thought we’d change it up and go after a few popular genres. Up first, the ubiquitous shooter.


Got beef with shooters, or with our lovely video? Leave a comment below, and feel free to use either the first- or third-person.

    shooters are fun and they suck at the same time. endlessly killing things can either be a real laugh or real bland

    Edit: ok no one likes empty or full servers, glitches or any other negative aspect of a game but thats not squarly aimed at "fan boys", a term now so thrown around its reached the same level as communist back in the war. Or are you saying that if your not a fan boy, and no one likes being one of these, you really enjoy empty/full serves and all the other bad things?

    Lol, well atleast I'm not a complete hater since I do like some of those games and not all of those things bother me. But I'd still take a generic RPG over a generic shooter any day. Speeking of which... time to face the truth in the 100 reasons fanboys hate rpgs vid...

    Ha ha, splash damage. :P

    Lol, it's true, in shooters you pretty much are just a camera with a gun taped to the side of it. Honestly, the gun doesn't stick out of your shoulder fully forward. The only way that really works is in the Metroid Prime games, that gun is at least somewhat realistically placed. And yeah, lag and waiting....and waiting....and waiting....really pisses me off.
