Hardcore FPS? Arena FPS?

  • As far as my memory goes, (at least) back in early 2000's, the phrase "Hardcore FPS" was used to refer to the game genre such as Quake, UT, Tribes or PainKiller.

    I don't know the exact time, but after so many years, when approximately Toxikk and Reflex and such games that were brought to make us recall the good old times, "all of a sudden" there came a new phrase "Arena FPS".

    Is it me that does not catch up the pace of the world for these years or what? But the new phrase is pretty suitable and bright, clearly contrasting military shooters such as COD. 8)

  • I think the reason they don't say hardcore FPS, is because it started to turn into an over used term. You could say a game is a hardcore FPS but that doesn't really narrow it down. At least when the term Arena FPS is used, you know that type of game play style. Same type of thing when it comes to music genres. If I were to say "I listen to Metal." Some people might think music from one generation and the next person might think of music from a different generation. Now if I said "I listen to classic metal." well now it's more specific.

  • I think the "oldschool" FPS (we call Arena FPS nowadays) have disappeared after the huge success of CoD Modern Warfare. These kind of games introduced completely new gameplay aspects and focused on blowing up the player with rewards. This has led to a broader Shooter base as "everyone" could have a great round/map/experience in these kind of games. If one of the casual CoD players would´ve started with Quake World, I´m pretty sure they would never have touched a Shooter again. Especially with the focus of a positive Kill/Death statistic. Call of Duty has managed to create a new basic understanding of a First Person Shooter. Basically every kid could camp up some kills and start crushing the other team with a killstreak series easily. No movement and/or aim skill involved and still the top dawg at the end of a round. You´ll never see this happening in an arena fps because you wouldn´t kill as fast while camping to get the kills.
    People growing up with CoD as their main shooter experience for example never felt the thrill of a skill based 1:1 in a Shooter.
