Neither have we. But at this week’s Byteside the panel spent a little time wondering what a 2nd-person shooter might look like. Would it be a literary experience where you simply observe the action performed by someone else? Or could it be an art experiment where you see the game through the eyes of your opponent?
After that, a plan was made to get a team together for the next Game Jam and try to pitch a 2nd person shooter into the mix. Likelihood that’ll happen? Not much.
The show was all about the FPS this week, so this was just one of a few weird interludes while exploring what makes a first-person shooter tick. David Hollingworth from Atomic, Richie Young from GameArena.com.au, and Jeremy ‘Junglist’ Ray were on the panel. Consoles vs PCs, the milestone evolutions of FPS, and the pros and cons of multiplayer were all on the agenda.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
