Need a new FPS game

Post by Imperium » 30 Jun 2009, 20:51

I haven't played a good PC FPS in absolutely ages, and to be honest haven't really kept up to date with games either. So, would anyone care to recommend a fun FPS game?

Much fanks.

e: Oh yeah, I guess I'm mainly hoping for a good single player at the moment, though if there is fun multiplayer with it too that is a bonus.

I know it is old, but do you have The Orange Box? If you don't, get it. It is worth every penny and will keep you occupied for ages.

Half Life 2
Episode 1
Episode 2
Portal
Team Fortress 2

What're the last ones you played? How long have you been out of the game? I mean, is it safe to assume you've played through all of Valve's latest work (L4D, Half-Life 2 episodes, etc).

Orange Box is a very good shout, I'd totally forgotten about it. I've played a little bit of Portal but not properly. As for Half Life I haven't done owt to do with it since the original which is a failing on my part. Success.

Was the latest CoD any good?

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare is a must if you want good FPS. Don't bother with World at War though.

CoD 4 is good...I thought 5 was fine as well. I also really enjoyed Crysis and Warhead. The FEAR series is fun as well, though very repetitive.

I think it says something that World at War is the COD that gets a Wii port, when it's also the one that's panned.

Epic browser game I've been playing: http://www.instantaction.com/#
It's Fallen Empire: Legions. Once you're ingame, hit Tab to go first person.

I've played CoD 4 on xbox as well, and it was mighty fun, which is why I'm interested in the 5th one. ZP makes a good cause for Painkiller, sounds pretty much what I'm looking for in single player goodness.

To give a rough timescale about the last time I was buying good PC games, other than RTS, I found Unreal Tournament 2004 today in my room. Pretty sure that is my latest venture on these 'ere parts.

After going through nearly every FPS there is out there, i would say any FPS in the past few years, is of poor gameplay but high graphics.

If your purely after just shoot and run gameplay, where you can take a whole ammo create before you die, then serious tournament games such as the COD 4 and below is good, the doom series, unreal tourny.


I'd suggest mixing stuff up like RTS and FPS games.

Or even 3d person-1st person games such as splinter cell choas, or vegas 2
