Speaking of wearing thin, some of us are tired of the same old graphics/physics/AI FPS formula that has nothing else to take the gaming experience to the next level. After playing FPS #35 with better graphics, better physics, and better AI, you begin to wonder if we've reached the boundaries of FPS game evolution. Vehicles are a nice recent addition and that gives me hope that developers are looking at adding some new ingredients. PvP multiplayer becoming varied and supporting more players is also great. However, I think giving up on coop for the sake of making release dates was a step back. I understand that not everyone enjoys coop, but it wouldn't hurt to come out with one new coop FPS every 2 years or so. As this coop drought goes on, maybe a successful SS2 will get the attention of the industry again.
