These games are shit compared to Quake and Doom. IMHO, you are not missing anything.
this is so completetly backwards that I am astonished.
I have played Halo and liked it, but Call of Duty, especially the Modern Warfare ones and Battlefiled 3 are so completely amazing and fun that I can only assume you have not played them.
yeah, I played Doom and Quake back in the day. The new games blow them away.
I've played all those games. At least, these newer ones, which I think is what we are talking about. I mentioned I had some laughs in B3, and I like some of the mechanics, but by and large I find all these games to be reeeaaaaaally boring. I mean, they're definitely better than nothing
- unless you're talking about the single player campaigns. In that case, I would strongly recommend the nothing.
I'm too spoiled by dynamic shooters with tight movement, and actual balance.
I'm not trying to be a smart ass, but I have an assumption as well, which is that you did not know what those games were when you were playing them, and the freedom that they allowed you. They don't make any money, but people are still making games like that.

Has anyone made a game of Doom in reverse? Just a dude running around a building and you trying to kill him? Kind of like Dungeon Siege,
or better yet, just a game of a dude with a gun chasing you down. And you just got to run man...
Man, that sounds like it would be a lot of fun. I swear that the latter idea is actually a game... I can't think of it though.
