Our job here at Corrupted Saves is not to merely make with the funny. We'd like to offer our services to guide, educate, to dispense the sage-like wisdom that one finds buried deep within the fortune cookies of only the fanciest of Chinese restaurants. Therefore, today we offer to you the secret recipe for creating a modern shooter. In fact, one need not look further than the master of recipe recycling, Taco Bell.

The trick is to start with the same four to five ingredients, put them together in differing combinations, name them something that sounds exciting and delicious, and the possibilities are endless. Seriously, the famous taco peddler has built an entire menu with little more than some meat, cheese, lettuce, and a few different types of shell. Never ones to shy away from stealing ideas, many game developers have followed this exact principle for creating games. Take zombies, aliens, soldiers, space marines, and a few different types of guns, mix and match at random, name it something that sounds kill-tastic, and you've got as triple-A of a release as it gets. Bon appetit!
