I stumbled upon on this video while browsing my usual forums. As far as I can tell, it is legit and not a fan made parody. If you don’t want to watch the video (which you should), it’s basically EA and Epic taking a huge dig at the modern war genre of first-person shooters. It puts Bulletstorm forward as a homage to much older frag-fest shooters like Quake and Unreal Tournament.
Shooters have definitely gone for a more realistic tone in recent years. This video is a pretty huge and public way to take a dig at a franchise if it turns out to be legit. But what do you think? Have EA and Epic bitten off more than they can chew, or have they hit the nail well and truly on its head? Bulletstorm is now only a few weeks away from release, and with Duke Nukem Forever coming out in May, it’s possible that these games could have a pretty big impact on the first-person shooter genre.
