I've always been in an awkward spot as a gamer. I love first person shooters, but I hate multiplayer-focused games. You should be able to see my dilemma. It's like loving delivery pizza but hating round foods in cardboard boxes. Luckily, every once in a while games come out like Bioshock
, or Half-Life 2
that manages to scratch my FPS itch without making me feel dirty for embracing something I hate out of desperation.
And then there is Id Software's upcoming FPS, Rage
. It looks amazing
, and it seems clearly intended to satisfy gamers like me who love first person shooters but hate getting tea-bagged while your family lineage is called into question by someone whose voice is so high, dogs everywhere are having a nervous breakdown. This new video released today highlights the different kinds of enemies you'll face in Rage
, but mainly it just makes me want to enter cryogenic stasis until October 7th
