Call of Duty nearly killed FPS as a genre for me

imo CoD ruined the entire genre. It has spawned more "I *bleep*ed your mom" teens than any other game, well, maybe Halo too but CoD is by far the worst.

I realised the other day I barely play shooters anymore except things like Dishonored, Borderlands etc because Call of Duty ground me down so badly. And this is coming from someone who learned how to game through years and years of PC shooters since like Unreal Tournament. Call of Duty 2 was my favourite game ever. And now I never play shooters.

I grew up playing PC shooters as well. Not that long ago I had picked up BF3 but they're trying too hard to compete with CoD so you have people trying to be rambo and rushing to their deaths with no strategy. I couldn't take it, I think I've only put in about 6hrs.

From time to time I still play Counter Strike GO. Death has consequences, it means you have to wait until the entire round is over.

I still really want to get CS:GO (waiting for a sale) but the brief time I played it before I hated the consolified buy menu!

You just need to get used to buying by numbers and the menu wont bother you.
