While Syndicate's New Trailer is Amazing, I Still Wish It Was For a Different Game

Same cool concept, same cool aesthetic, very tired genre.

I'm a shooter fan, a HUGE shooter fan, but sometimes it would be nice if when a storied, beloved franchise gets a reboot it didn't turn up as a shooter, or an action shooter, or an RPG shooter, or a fill-in-the-blank shooter.


Syndicate looks lovely, it's enticing, but I still wish it wasn't going to be a shooter.

I used to sit up in the wee hours of the morning with my friend — his dad was an Apple geek and he had like 4 Apple computers in the basement...we used to play Syndicate all night, Escape Velocity, and another RTS game where a British man would announce "casualty" when someone died. If anyone knows what that last game is, let me know so I can find it and download it.
