I agree with this article 100% great read.
I find myself tired of the FPS Genre. Due to the waves upon waves of enemies. Mass Effect was indeed a glimpse into how engaging story driven gaming could be, with only minimal combat to deal with.
Bioshock, although I am sure a great game, didnt keep me interested over the better part of an hour just because i felt, wow gee this is just another typical FPS disguised in a new story with different looking bosses.
