Personally I don't get the allure of "first person shooters". I've tried to play Call Of Duty a few times with my nephew (in the same room, not over the internet, which I suspect is the real allure of shooters). I really didn't understand how to use the controller and got bored with the repetitiveness (and getting killed) pretty quickly. Since shooters are all the rage, I don't really get why so many people like them. What am I missing?
Maybe I don't like them because I can't suspend reality enough. I like sports, thus I like sports games, and spend probably 95% of my gaming time (which is, admittedly limited) on NBA 2K. It's a game that's always a challenge. I could literally play it for an entire calendar game if I ever got that sorta free time (which I never will).
Shooters though... sorry, I just don't get it. Someone explain the point.
Question: What am I missing?
