    i think i have a really good idea on how somebody could make a shooter game work really well.

    the gameplay would be from a 3rd person view, like brothers in arms, but there would be no ugly buttons. all that needs to be on the screen is a thing to change your gun, and show your health and ammo.

    instead of using a fake control pad to move, you would just tap to where you want to move. by sliding your fingers apart, it would go to a bird's eye view of the battle, with cover highlighted in blue, enemies in red, and weapons/ammo in green. if you tap on a blue highlighted area, it switches out of the birds eye, and you begin moving there. while you are moving you can drag around the screen to look around, and tap to shoot. shaking the screen slighty would be a dodge roll

    once you get to the cover, to duck down you could drag your finger down, and to stand back up just drag your finger up.

    anybody like the idea?

    then it would lose the value of being a FPS or TPS, it would be more of a RTS
    and the idea is kinda cool though a mix of TPS and RPS, but personally i dont theink that any game would be able to create a perfect FPS/TPS game on the touch or even the PSP

    I guess it would be a rts, but where you control 1 unit and can actually attack and aim and stuff. So kind of a 3rd person rts shooter .I think it could work really well...
