The Forgotten Genre...Resistance

I thank you guys for wishing me happy birthday so I give you all a bagel.

But most importantly, you use your teammates, much like say, Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six. They take damage, but can sustain more than you. They can die and you have to recruit new soldiers. You fight dirty, and most importantly, you make sure you feel that playing the game, you feel what you are doing is right, even though you may find out later it is wrong.

Sorry I just went off on a tangent and described the perfect Resistance game. When I mean it's a forgotten genre, I mean they just blanded it in with other FPS's. They took a concept which is different to "run n' gun" and tried to mould into it. Just because of popular demand.

Now I do understand this wouldn't really work in competitve multiplayer. But the whole point of resistance warfare is it's guerilla warfare. You take civillians and make them soldiers. Not superhuman, special soldiers, or conviently retired war veterans (Resistance 2, Homefront, tutut).

I just want the genre to be made into what it should be. Then again my portrayals of Resistance come from TV and movies. Are they any more accurate? ARRGGHH why do I ask myself questions which I can't find an answer to? My head hurts. Stupid cleverness.

Alright, let's try this again.

My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.

Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.

I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?

So yeah, vidjo games.

Deus Ex Human Revolution
Batman Arkham City

Rayman Advance

Super Mario 64
House Of Dead III

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
