Stuart Black, former senior designer on Criterion’s PS2/Xbox shooter Black, finds a portion of the current shooter scene “f***ing boring,” he told OXM in a recent chat.
“There’s a lot of cover-based shooters out at the moment. But when a guy hunkers down behind something, you’ve just got to sit there and wait for him to pop his head up,” he explains. “Pops up, couple of bullets to his head, pops back down again.. and I’m waiting for him to pop back up again? F***ing boring. I can’t be bothered hanging around like that.”
Good thing he’s the game director of a new first-person shooter property — to be revealed in next month’s issue of OPM — over at Codemasters then, eh?
