First person shooter games used to be really famous in the past few years, until MMORPG came into the spotlight. FPS genre was killed, losing almost all its attention, while people are focusing on MMORPG games.
Today, FPS seems stronger than before, as MMORPG genre grows very old and probably even dying.
First person shooter back in the day was offline. Players don’t meet people around the world, and this is one of the reason how MMORPG genre defeated FPS at the time. In MMORPG, people get to meet people from around the world while FPS is fixed locally.
When FPS finally connected in the internet, they became famous again.
CSGO market – Versatility
FPS games are versatile. These games could be played with or without the intervention of internet.
Since MMORPG was really popular back then, FPS developers tried to copy some factors that the MMORPG have – Trading.
Even counter strike have a csgo market which has its own economy. The economy of CSGO is unique. Economies that never affect the gameplay because what are being traded are only cs go skins, primarily for aesthetic.
CSGO as the most basic, but strategic, can’t add more mechanics like how overwatch works because the thing about counter strike is it has a well balanced maps and guns. Changing these mechanics would destroy the core nature of counter strike.
It is so strange that with numerous FPS with good mechanics and creative factors can’t beat counter strike. Counter strike is so simple that you choose your gun and kill people. In some newer FPS, players get to choose their classes.
Who is going to die next?
With the hype of overwatch around the world, how csgo or valve will respond to blizzard’s new game – Overwatch. It is also a game that has a potential to become an E-Sports.
