You can spectate or watch many random kill cams and you can see the game does about 75% of the aiming work for you.
Yes developers done this to entice more and more casual gamers to their games to lead them to believe they too could be L337.
All we are getting though is more and more diluted halo gamers who have little idea of what it actually takes to play a game by themselves and who know nothing about true gaming skill.
There would be a mass outcry if auto-aim (YES AUTO AIM NOT AIM ASSIST) was removed from all future games.
I still maintain that an average Doom/RTCW/Quake player from yesteryear would rip the best CoD/Halo players apart due to current gamers being mollycuddled to within an inch of their life by nubish gaming handholding gameplay that we have to suffer today.
Yes Moneys what makes the world go round but real games is what it should be about.
BTW Brink failed badly because it tried too hard to milk CoDs teats. If they had any bottle they would have made their game a old school shooter instead of the *** halo/cod lovechild that it is.
