What the hell?

So I was just checking on kotaku to see if there was any updated and there was. One of them was a top list, and one of these top lists was a list for most anticipated games to be shown at E3 this year (I should really say most HOPED as well) and going through the list we can see Skyrim, Max Payne 3, Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 3, Diablo 3.. you can see the full list >HERE< but the one thing that apprently is at number #1.. is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.. really? Is this really the number #1 game that 'we', and I use the term loosely, are most looking forward to at E3 2011? Why? Can't we let the CoD games die already and try and do something new with the FPS genre RATHER than having the same old dull FPS come out again?

You see my problem here is that, it isn't the fact that it's another CoD game.. OK, so it is a little bit, but that's my own opinion, It's the fact that any FPS's made now, are more than likely going to be shut down, due to the fact that it will not have that CoD feel about it and that Call of Duty will be the starting point to making a new FPS game. Just look at HomeFront. A good example of my argument here, and this is the issue the industry is facing at the moment. The fact that we have to make a game similar or if not, the same structure as Call of Duty.

Now I'm not saying that ALL FPS's are going to be the same, just the majority. I mean I despise the Halo franchise, I don't like the story and it's the game where if my sister wanted to start playing an FPS, I would put her on Halo, as it's that kind of FPS newbie game. I myself prefer Counter Strike and Killzone 2 or hell, even the battlefield series (Bad Company was awesome, Bad Company 2 felt like a better version of CoD:MW).
