Kill Your Babies! Eliminate the Shooters!



  • Kill Your Babies! has spent so much time from other lists and proprietary hardware, it's about time a genre (or a combination of one) is tackled. The definitive 30 shooters have been given, now it's time for them to be shot down (Only pun I promise). Here are the rules for a refresher or for new players:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because their good (Because that makes sense :joy: )

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only three other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed. This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so please, be vicious, be remorseless, and most importantly: HAVE FUN!!!

    Goldeneye isn't as good as everyone's rose-tinted glasses make them think it is. It is a great touchstone of the form but it is far from the pinnacle.



  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (sorry) Good God that's funny. Several want to keep GoldenEye and give good reasons for it, and it's the first to go. Damn. :joy:



  • @Brannox It needed to die :dagger: :P

    You should have known this would be my first kill. Halo is probably a fine game, but in my heart will always be synonymous with betrayal.

    I just don't see Mass Effect as a game or as a series a shooter in any way. Ok, I mean, there IS shooting, sure, and quite a lot of it, too, but it's not like the main thing in the series. Not the first thing you would say or remember when asked to describe ME.



  • @thenerdtheword Noooo! I wanted to be the one to kill Goldeneye. It's close to unplayable these days, yet people hang onto it for the memories and nostalgia it brings. Nostalgia is powerful and beautiful but we're rating games, not memories.

    Love you Killer 7, you're quirky and weird. You however, aren't a shooter, so y'know... you gots to go.

    I really don't like the Stalker series. It's a game with many great ideas but nothing is executed as well as it could.

    Not as good as the first Modern Warfare and i don't like CoD games that much in general!



  • I'd like to add that I'm also sad that I didn't get the chance to be the one to kill Goldeneye, but I'm glad I'm not the only one that has taken the nostalgia googles off. Played the game for so many hours during my childhood, tried it once again two years ago, and it was a huge doze of reality.

    Played it for a while, and I didn't end up liking it a lot, specially since big part of the appeal is the MP, which is a downside for a hermit like me.

    It feels great to shoot a gun in Destiny, it truly does. Everything else in this game though? Ugh. The story basically doesn't exist, the characters aren't memorable, mission design (especially in vanilla Destiny) is a joke, and the fact they keep releasing high priced DLC with very little additional content is boggling. One of my biggest gaming disappointments as Bungie was hyping this game to all hell. Hopefully Destiny 2 is less about grinding than its predecessor.

    I continue my march to the sea, burning all Halo games to the ground and salting the earth.
    If I were to bother critiquing this game, I'd say that this is the game where Bungie started sacrificing the single player campaign for multiplayer, which I'm not a huge fan of in general.

    Again, jumped on the hype train, was heavily disappointed, never bought a CoD again, gave it away for a pack of danish waffles to my friend.

    I am firmly in the Bosman camp with this game. The shooting doesn't feel good, the alarm drones are extremely annoying, connecting pipes gets really old really fast, the plot is pretentious, that ending.... I think everyone played the great opening sequence and then locked in their predetermined love for this game without viewing the rest through a critical eye.

    Not a bad game, just not deserving of the level of reverence it gets.
