First Person Shooters - Got Any Good Ones?

Fri Sep 28, 2007 6:45 am

For the more childish people on the board (ok, or the old geezers who have no time/life), what first person shooters do y'all play?

I used to play Warrock (www.warrock.net) a lot, but it got kinda old. Especially when I downloaded Americas Army and gave it a go. AA is pretty fun... I always get butchered, but hey, I still have fun. Warrock is a more arcade like game - no team kill, takes around 5 or 6 shots pumped into you to die, etc. AA is a lot of fun - players are more serious because they don't want to rambo and die and wait 10 minutes for the next round.

I wanna give BF2 a try sometime. Looks fun.

(I'm talkin about computer based games, if you couldn't tell)

I played Half-Life 2 for the first time last year. It was so good, I played part of it for 6 or 8 hours straight. (Yes, I did take bathroom breaks. Don't be silly.)

As much hype as there has been about it, Halo 3 is awesome. Really enjoying that one.

I also like pretty much any of the Splinter Cell games and, it's a few years old now (2003 I think it was released), but Return to Castle Wolfenstein is always fun.

It was, but I'm not talking about Wolf 3D. They did a modernized 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' about 5 years ago. And it's freakin' brilliant.

I have to stick with Desert Combat from BF1942 for now. No matter anyways, because I haven't touched it for weeks because of school/work/college. I'll probably start playing BF2 when everyone else is playing BF4 or 5!

That was my very first FPS.  cloudnine  I blew way too much time on old Spearhead...Days, hours, weeks that I'll never get back. But I suppose that's true with any FPS.

Deus Ex, one of, if not the best Ego-Shooter of all time. It might not have had the best graphics, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a storyline as deeply thought out as DX.

For me BF2 is the best online shooter. But if don´t want to play with all settings on LOW, you´ll need a Dual core of some sort, at least 1GB of RAM and a 12 pixel-pipeline videocard - like GF 7600, Radeon X800....

On the PC the next great promise is Crisis. Let´s wait and see, but I guess system requirements will be mind blowing.

Halo3 is a killer, can´t wait to put my hands in a X360 after I watched the presentation videos.

If you are still into PS2, Call of Duty 3 is quite good, but already looking old.Other great (not so new) shooters for PS2 are Killzone, EA´s Black and the last Rainbow 6.

So I was wondering about BF2... my new computer is so-so... not great, not horrible.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
ATI X1650 Pro, 256MB
1 gig of ram (soon to be 2)
and plenty of disk space

It plays Americas Army fine... just wondering about BF2. I could upgrade the video card, if I *have* to, I guess.

Any input?

You cannot failed to have noticed the hype surrounding Halo 3's launch, for a start it's one heck of a game, give it a try if you haven't already. Other FPS that i play (on the 360) are Perfect Dark Zero, Far Cry Instincts and F.E.A.R

Just beat Bioshock on the medium difficulty, contemplating going back to beat it on Hard.

I've got my copy of Halo 3, but the network issues have limited my play time because I really enjoy the co-op campaign the best.

Really looking forward to COD4.

You will be fine. I only have an X800 and my computer can smoothly run BF2 on high with X4 AA and a high FPS. BF2 is indeed a good game, but its quite old now, over 2 years old. May be you should try BF2142 the future version its just as fun, if not better. Also you need a bit of teamwork in BF2 if you want to get good, so don't just go shooting people by your self, join squads its much funner.  Smile

Other good FPS's are:
-Counter Strike Source (obviously)
-Ghost recon advanced warfighter 2
-Raibow Six Vegas
-COD 4 (soon)
-Enemy Territory Quake Wars (soon)
-Bioshock
-Crysis (soon)

Heaps of other games will be coming out in the next year....

No one has mentioned Black so far ... it is a bad ass fps. I dont believe they are coming out with a sequel though.. If you have not tried it ..check it out.

Bagpiper, my PC it´s almost like yours, but I use a GF 7600GT and 2GB of RAM.
I was able to play BF2 with all sets to 100% even w/ only 1GB of RAM.
Go for it, and get the Collection Edition DVD, it has all maps and that 500+MB patch.

I have BF 2 on the PC and that game is AWESOME!!! IF you want to try it out before you buy it, you can download the demo version from download.com for free. The guns and vehicles are so realistic. I'm going out to buy an XBOX 360 this afternoon (I'm super excited) and plan on getting Halo 3 (and Call of Duty 4 when it comes out, if it's not out already). But for right now, BF 2 takes the cake in my opinion...

Yeah, I just saw that on Amazon.com. That game looks soooo bad ass! Getting a 360 really opens up my options when it comes to getting really good games. So many awesome ones only come out for only the PS 3 and 360 and that really makes me mad (I bought a Nintendo Wii awhile ago.). Though the Wii has some good games out or will be getting some good games soon (Super Smash Brothers Brawl also looks badass!) Big grin

Amazing game, specially the new Orange Box with Episode 1, Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2.
Also the first Half Life was good, specially the story.

The original Day of Defeat(not the source one), specially now that most of immature players have moved on to other games.
Red Orchestra if you want realism(with the K98 you fire just like any other shoother but then you must click again to reload the chamber to be able to fire again).
BF2142 its good too.
Half-Life 2 Deatmatch and its dozens of mods.
All the Unreal Tournaments
And there are others which I don't remember at the moment.
