lol suppose I should share my favs since I started the post lol!

From # 1-10:
1) Unreal, my fav FPS of all time.
2) DooM series, I love the excessive overkill
3) UT, I like the improved UnrealEd
4) Duke3d, just a classic one with excessive overkill
5) Heretic/Hexen series
6) Quake 2
7) System Shock 2
8 ) Carnivores series and Primal Prey, dinosaur/prehistoric hunting sims.
9) Gunmetal
10) Chasm: the Rift, somewhere between Quake and DooM with the graphics, kinda fun.

I wish someone would come out with a new game with some excessive overkill. Good old fashioned DooM style gameplay with updated graphics, only without the major focus being the graphics. The emphasis would have to be on gameplay, modification ability (for replayability), and a small story that is good, but not to involved.

I love Medal of Honor: Frontline,  for letting me act out all those war movies I grew up watching.

And Timesplitters2, because it is simply more fun than a rug full of kittens.

BlakeStone: Aliens of Gold

Wolfenstein 3D spawned many "spin offs", there are loads that were made by modifying the wolf3d engine most of them are relatively unknown. One interesting one was called "Noahs Ark 3D" which consisted of capturing animals and converting the heathen, it was a chritian endevour, it also violated ID softwares copyrghts, and was quickly taken off the market, as the ones responsible for such a crap game didn't ask permission to use the engine. Also Rise Of The Triad (another ID game) that was brought out after DooM, was ment to be Wolfenstein 3D 2, but because of laws in using nazi related material in media being banned, they had to change the name and its concepts.

I'm going to provide a list of my favourite first person games, so that I can start with........

1. DEUS EX........the most atmospheric, detailed, interesting, exciting, tense game that I have ever played, and with a great story to back it up.

2. HALF LIFE.......Excellent game that was let down by the two truly awful boss levels at the end. The level design was magnificent, with lots of variety and plenty of interesting locations. The AI was superb, particularly that of the soldiers. I also liked the way that ventilation shafts were used to access different areas, which is something that Deus Ex expanded upon superbly.

3. TERMINATOR : FUTURE SHOCK.........The game that invented "mouselook" was incredibly atmospheric, with all of those burning barrels, wrecked cars, ruined buildings......and a variety of terminators and other bots to overcome. The first person sections were ace, the driving sections were OK, but the flying levels were a bit boring.

4. QUAKE II........The best Quake game to date. Excellent early levels, with stuff happening in the background (explosions, aircraft flying overhead). The mixture of rock and metal in the level design was great, the weapons were superb, and the game was pretty atmospheric in places. The final boss was rubbish though.....again. NOTE to game developers: BOSSES ARE GENERALLY RUBBISH. FIND ANOTHER WAY OF ENDING A GAME.

5. RETURN TO CASTLE WOLFENSTEIN.......Enjoyable game generally, although it struggled in places. The graphics were the best use of the Quake III Arena engine that I have ever seen. The AI was quite impressive.

6. UNREAL........This game was magnificent for the first nine levels, with detailed, interesting locations, plenty of variety, and incredible atmosphere. Unfortunately, the story wandered a bit later on, and the levels seemed to be nothing more than a selection of (admittedly very impressive) maps that didn't seem to combine into a coherent whole, together with some levels that just didn't work (the last ten or so levels on the mothership were utter crap).


I have played lots of other first person games on PC, but many of them were very disappointing. Some had awful AI (Elite Force), others started well but faded away later on (Dark Forces, Quake, SIN, Jedi Knight), and others just generally disappointed (Doom II, Jedi Knight 2, Unreal 2).

Unreal 2 in particular was a huge disappointment. This bore little reemblance to its predecessor, and had none of the imagination and vision that the original Unreal portrayed. Let's hope that Unreal 3 is the true sequel.

I remember playing dark forces, and i rather enjoyed it, although the levels were small, and not enough of them. Jedi knight was ok i guess, but the concept of force in that game was totally wrong. But after playing halflife, and then deus ex, i felt deux ex to be a let down, i couldn't get into it, it was kind of boring for me. Return ti castle wolfenstein was good until you hit the last three levels and then it turned complete crap/or so overwhelmingly difficult it was unplayable (the very end boss for example).

you soon will know the true meaning of haxor . You will curse as they laugh at you with their ability to fly , never take damage , and instantly appear behind you when the game starts weilding a fully loaded shotgun with infinite ammo.

or run like the wind with that old clspeed hack, or that old headshot bot. Word of advice if your gonna play serious CS. Goto a server that runs Punkbuster, methinks you can get the program here, basically the server only allows people who run punkbuster whilst playing otherwise it boots the player, and anyone who cheats is automatically booted. I used to play serious league games of CS, if you wanna get good, join a hig rated clan and let them train you. I was crap when i started and three months into it i was still crap till i joined a decent UK clan, after a week of training i kept getting booted from servers for being "too good".....
