Where did all the 'tacticool' games go?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 i've been going back over my ps2/xbox heug games to revisit games i loved to see if they hold up. Something i've noticed is genres that died out either partially or totally between then and now. One in particular was the 'operator' or 'tacticool' genre. Small 3 or 4 man crack squads in games where they are inserted into hostile environments to use stealth, tactics and strategy to take on superior numbers to do tasks that should be very hard to complete.

You had games like Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Rainbow Six, Star Wars Republic Commando and so on that offered something different to the lone one man army killing machine power fantasy games of the time and while there have been a few attempts to revive the genre with games like Doorkickers and R6 Seige for the most part it remains a product of the mid 90's to mid 2000's thats largely gone with the modern versions leaning more to multiplayer esports or tablet gameplay instead of a traditional shooter with a tactical focus.

Did you ever get into these games? why do you think they dont have much of an appeal nowadays?
 

Please help.

Thanks!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
