I love Giant Bomb and I love the Bombcast. That Burnout Crash bit was hilarious.

Bad Company 2 and TF2 are kings of the multiplayer shooter genre for me. Halo is also quality gameplay, despite the bad reputation the gaggle of morons have given it.

I don't have any crazy good unknown shooters. But I don't see a compelling argument to not play Battlefield or TF2 when I want to play a shooter.

Try to tell me Brink is worth my time more than TF2 and Battlefield. I've seen how Brink plays, I don't know what you're getting pissy about. If I was going to drop that much money on a new shooter I'd buy Crysis 2, and if I wanted to buy something that looked about on par with Brink I'd buy Section 8: Prejudice because it's way cheaper. Or how about Killzone. Brink covers ground so close to the modern class-based iron-sights shooter that I really don't understand how BF and TF2 don't immediately strike you as superior products. I'd listen if somebody was saying that they were making a UT2004 style game again, but you want to sell me a decent class-based team-based shooter with iron-sights weapons with attachments and perks? Fuck off. For making fun of CoD, you sure are being a defensive little pecker about a game that sticks very, very close to the contemporary shooter archetype that CoD4 established. I haven't liked CoD since 4, but I'd rather play more of 4 than Brink.

Are you seriously trying to suggest in a douchey sarcastic manner that you have no idea what I'm talking about when I say there are much better shooters to play than Brink and a lot of them?
