Just goes to show how tastes differ, since I seem to be the polar opposite. I enjoy the cartoony shooters, and accuracy is nice but at that point I'm playing for fun. Team Fortress 2 is the ultimate FPS for me, it's just a blast and I can hop in anytime, snipe for 30 minutes, and leap out.
I played Call Of Duty a while back, and after a while I was just bored. It looked great and played smooth, but I'd just seen these locations in the news and in movies too many times.
But again, simply a difference in preference. As long as the games give you what you want, they're doing their job.
I would just like to say thanks for the heads up on the Steam sale. I am not much one for digital distribution, as I still don't fully trust cloud gaming. But good god, these deals make it worth not really having a physical copy. I got GTA IV for $15, and its been pretty fun so far.
As for the Bioshock game. I liked it and I didn't like it. Let me explain. The game was nice, and the graphics requirements were through the roof almost when it originally came out. But the one thing I didn't like about it is the cartoonish look it seemed to have.
It seems FPS games have split into two divisions anymore. One being realistic looking with realistic weapon systems ie: CoD4. While other games have a slightly cartoonish look and not so pin-point shooting system, such as Bioshock and Turning Point, fall of liberty.
And although I like both kinds of games, the cartoonish games eventually start to tick me off as the accuracy isn't as good as I would like, and causing ammo conservation to be hard. Not to mention after long periods of playing the movement begins to feel way to slow. But perhaps this is just me. These reasons would eventually lead to me never beating the game.
However I would still recommend it to people.
