Im sure that the hardcore Socomers will eat up all of the rehash maps that Slant Six is putting out.
But, Im thinking that given the amount of hype currently surrounding MW2, and the chance that it will probably live up to its expectations,( considering how well the first one did) that this game will draw a massive amount of gamers away from socom.
Again, call me bitter, but I still cant understand the argument of "(insert game here) isnt socom".
Lets face it... Socom Confrontation was NOT socom. They've patched the hell out of it trying to make it the socom that we all knew and loved, but Socom was done on the PS2 if you look back at "socom" and what it was back then
Personally Socom, the game itself is such a small part of what made the game great(in my opinion)... Socom introduced alot of us to organized tactical game play , and the ability to communicate with our friends on line. Both about actual tactics, and just shooting the breeze.
No other game will be "like socom" because true socomers cant seem to ever look past their blatant love of the game, flaws and all.
Yet, with the market now saturated with First Person Shooters, some of which are mediocre at best... none the less, there are very good tactical shooter ALTERNATIVES to socom.
Yes, their first person, and yes, their NOT socom.. but for christ sake... A good portion of them are games that are designed better, have better support behind the scenes, and provide a very satisfactory gaming experience for those of us who enjoy shooters.
I hated First Person shooters while I played Socom.. But in retrospect, its because I sucked at it, since I wasnt used to it. After playing a few.. it becomes completely normal, and its all about what you're used to.
I know this sounds like another socom rant, but the facts still remain.. Even after all the patches, and people constantly saying "its not as bad now" or "they fixed it"... I still think that Socom died when It was given to Slant six...
