FPS games are dying. They aren't fun to watch and that's where the gold is.Hate to say it but CoD, BF, Halo, etc won't last in FP. — Dr DisRespect (@DrDisRespect) August 2, 2017
It's unclear about whether the Doc is relating to esports, streaming or just gaming in general, but despite an extensive background in the video game industry, including working with Sledgehammer on the maps for Advanced Warfare, many believe his claim is a little far fetched. Another popular streamer, Hutch from the Old Men of OpTic, responded with questions regarding the claim, asking whether it was a gut feeling or data driven.
And you can bring up the argument for CS. That's a special case. People from all skills/experience can relate to that game.— Dr DisRespect (@DrDisRespect) August 2, 2017
idk... look at twitch, look at steam, look at population, look at revenue, look at community feedback, look at VC investments.....look at me— Dr DisRespect (@DrDisRespect) August 2, 2017
Data driven guys never succeed. Entrepreneurs with organic mind frames always redefine relative paths.You need to break through the glass — Dr DisRespect (@DrDisRespect) August 2, 2017
more money is being spent on mktg/pr while revenue, server population, and 3rd party platform interest is decreasing.Easy fact. — Dr DisRespect (@DrDisRespect) August 2, 2017
x A real test for the FPS world will be when Call of Duty WWII is launched on November 3rd, taking the CoD community back to its roots with boots on the ground mechanice. Can it revive the fortunes of the FPS genre?
I defer to you when it comes to those stats, but I think that the word "dying" doesn't even come close to reality. FPSers gonna FPS.— Hutch (@z0mgItsHutch) August 2, 2017
