Killzone 3, but I see myself playing COD more.

If they can finetune the aiming in Killzone, I'd play it more.

I guess Killzone 3 but I really don't have much interest in it. Really don't have interest in the others, but GoW3 might be fun. I'm personally looking more forward to Medal of Honor than the games listed.

I'm actually looking way, way ahead in the future for my FPS that I'm more interested in. id software is making a game called Rage which is going to blow Fallout 3 out of the water.

None of the above. No "other" choice?

Limited by those choices, i'd have to say Call of Duty. Although I probably won't play it.

Killzone has always been a pretty sub-par series. Nothing that interesting about it.

I'll vote for none of these right now.

in order of preference:


Killzone 3

Gears of War 3

Halo: Reach

COD Black Ops looks like the same old s**t over again judging from the trailers. seriously getting tired of the COD series. Activision are great at running franchises into the ground.


KZ3 is the only one that i'm really interested and excited about, tho. KZ2 is my favorite shooter across all platforms at the moment ...so its KZ3 easily for me.

I guess Halo? Killzone 1 sucked, but I did enjoy Killzone 2. After awhile though the whole idea that your gun weighs 800 pounds gets old.

I played the Reach beta and it was ok, but felt like the same old Halo 3 to me with a couple nice tweaks. The only reason I picked it is because Halo multiplayer is something I can always pick up and play every few months and have a bit of fun for a few hours. Honestly though, I'm not looking forward to any of the new FPS's really. Medal of Honor might come out and be amazing, but I'm not holding my breath.

I don't think an FPS will knock my socks off until the next line of consoles come out. I'd expect them to start being unveiled next E3.

Except Fallout 3 was an RPG and Rage is an FPS.

What's amusing is that it's the third Gears game compared to the seventh Call of Duty.

Not particularly interested in any of them.

Gears is fun so I voted that. Killzone is decent too

CoD and Halo have worn out their welcome, people that still play these games should expand their horizons

Would pick KZ3

CoD has been getting a bad rap due to frequent use of perks, not my style of gaming

GoW3 is a fine franchise

Halo Reach is alright

Call of duty for me, simply to see if it can hold my interest. I honestly think a lot of gamers will make up their minds completely (about the series) from this game.

Reach. I played the beta and thought it was pretty fun. I'm also looking forward to playing the co-op with one of my friends.

I done with Call of Duty. Activision can piss off.

Gears 3 is going to be awesome, but it's too far away for me to be very interested.

Killzone 3 is a close second to Reach since KZ2's multiplayer was so much fun, but I'm trying not to get too excited until I learn more about the multi. It was near impossible to find a good game since everybody was in 32 player cluster**** servers on maps that are way too small for 32 people. I'm hoping in KZ3 they have matchmaking with an 8v8 or even 6v6 playlist, limit the player count to 16-20 players, or just make the maps bigger.

Killzone 2 was an awesome game in terms of the surroundings, the actual fight, the enemy smarts, boss fights but damn they really screwed up the controls. Why in gods name developers keep putting the AIM button as the R3 button is stupid. I don't wanna have to click everytime I have to aim and then have to unclick to not continue aiming. I need to pop in and out of the sights using L1, L2, R1, R2. R3 should only be nades or melee.

I know F3 is an RPG but it's mixed with a FPS. Sorry but you can't say that Fallout 3 wasn't a FPS when you run around in first person view shooting everybody. You can also say Rage is a driving game, where's that argument?

COD for me, been a fan since the first one and I'm looking forward to what the franchise rebounds with after the epic fail that was MW2.

Even though I'd have to wait till April, GoW 3 is probably my next fps purchase.

The campaigns have been awesome in the first 2 and with 4 player co-op, **** yea!

The multiplayer hopefully is improved so the lag/host isn't so terrible.

I will never buy a Treyarch game, I hate Gears Of War, I don't have a PS3, and I don't like Halo.


Medal Of Honor looks interesting, and it's made by Dice.

Because Rage isn't a racing game, it's a first person shooter. Gran Turismo is a racing game. Alan Wake has driving sequences, that does not make it a racing game. Fallout 3's shooting was dependent on statistics raised by gaining experience, not your pure ability to put reticule on Super Mutant and pull trigger.

For the same vague reason Metroid Prime isn't a FPS. That nobody from the media, to the creators to most of the fans consider it an FPS.

The emphasis is not on shooting things. It's about exploring, puzzle solving and even platforming before it is firefights. Just like Fallout is about exploring, surviving and completing missions before it's about killing things. Besides, I didn't play Fallout 3 in First Person.

It's like saying Halo is an RPG because you play the role of Master Chief or Resident Evil 2 is a third person shooter because you shoot and the perspective is in third person.

Killzone 3, Medal of Honour are both very intriguing. Not really a massive fan of CoD, it's okay.
