As to KI:U, it didn't give me hand cramps, but it wasn't enjoyable to play because of the control scheme. Shame, because everything else about it is wonderful.

It's not about encouraging shooters to the exclusion of other genres; variety is the goal here.
Just like how Nintendo's first-party games might sell a system, but they maintain a good rapport with gamers by nurturing a variety of 3rd party titles.

I'd agree (somewhat) if we were talking about Wii U. The 3DS just isn't an ideal platform for shooters, though.

The ideal platform for FPS's is the PC they don't work properly without a keyboard and mouse.

(I am not really all that into them quite like stuff like Serious Sam but I know for sure that is the best way to play them.)

Light Gun type shooters are good on a (none handheld console.

I like shooters like Spriggen / M.U.S.H.A / Blazing Lasers - 3DS could do with some of them.

Or ones like Metal Slug / Contra - 3DS could do with some of them. (Hate the way it scales the DS ones or makes them too small).

I guess I'm one of the few that actually prefers playing FPS games with the stylus and d-pad or circle pad. The precision and control I get with that setup is amazing. By comparison, I've always found keyboard/mouse to be awkward and console controllers to be too slow and/or limited in precision and control. That being said, the one and only drawback with the 3DS is comfort, which I've managed to alleviate for the most part by attaching the circle pad pro to give me something bigger and more ergonomic to grip.

I would like a FPS on the 3DS. It isn't necessary, but I like variety. I played two of the Call of Duty titles, Dementium, and Metroid Prime Hunters. They all worked well. I loved playing Call of Duty 4 with my brother.

I think with the Circle Pad Pro, gyro-aim, and touchscreen controls in the hands of developers; we should have more FPSs than we do now, but I'm not exactly upset we're missing them.

Hopefully we'll get a few. The Vita's got Call of Duty Declassified, but that piece of unfinished garbage led to my friend selling his Vita for a large amount of 3DS games.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.
I used to own a GBC, PS2, and DS Lite

I can't say it NEEDS a shooter, but a Metroid Hunters sequel would be most welcome!

I think it would be nice to have some FPSs on ye 3DS. I think it's a shame COD wasn't put on the 3DS. It really might have been pretty good on the 3DS with it's new power that the DS didn't have.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
The best system for a game will not always result in the best game (representation) of a genre.
I have a PC and I've got the Xbox 360.

The COD thing, well, I can't deny its popularity, so if it ushers in more unique FPS than I'm all for it. Clearly the hardware is in place now with the 'nub'; platform specific controls aren't as big a hook to me as portability and competent visuals.

I don't think that everybody plays the 3DS for hardcore gameplay all of the time. It isn't meant for button mashing, especially since you would just tear through your touch screen like somebody stabbing a knife in an evil robot. I usually play my 3DS just for casual games, games where I wouldn't be forced to have all of these complicated shenanigans all over the place like in CoD. A Metroid Prime game would be practically the only 3DS First-Person Shooter needed. Other than that, maybe some Virtual Console games such as Wolfenstein, Doom, and GoldenEye 007. (no stupid remakes, the actual, untouched, SNES and N64 games)

Remakes are not stupid if they are done right. Just look at Metroid: Zero Mission and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D since those were remakes of games we already love done right.

Well count me as one who wants a good FPS for 3DS. The stylus isnt preferred but, Metroid on DS and Moon were both fun and add the option of the circle pad pro, 3d, and enhanced graphics to those and you got a hit.

I'm looking forward to RK's Cult County. A first person Metroid on 3DS would be really cool.

I'm not really desperate for a FPS on 3DS; I mean the PS3, 360 and PC has more than plenty games in the genre. I myself actually got burnt out on the genre but I still enjoy it here and there.

I'm not a fan of 3d shooters but its hard to believe that the 3DS doesn't have an online Multiplayer 3d shooter yet like Call of Duty or Halo. Maybe the system just isn't capable of this type of Multiplayer play. I'm starting to think that. Look at what they did with Monster Hunter. Has anyone played that online connecting to Wii-U to do so? The only game of this type is Kid Icarus with a hand numbing control scheme. I played that for a little bit but could only play it in short segments as my hands would become painfully numb after 20 to 30 minutes. Needless to say I finished the single player on Kid Icarus then traded it in. I just don't think Nintendo wants a 3d shooter on 3DS
