Here's a chance to tell everyone what your favorite first person shooter game is and why. What do you like about the game and what don't you like about it. If you have more than one favorite, then tell us about the others too.

This is not the place to defend YOUR game when someone states their opinion... (no flaming please) just a place for you to state your objective feeling about the games you love to play.

Maybe someone will read your review and decide to buy a game you love to play.

I'll start.

Quake 4: Single Player: I liked the single player for it's realism and creepiness, great bots and seemless integration with video content (great sequence where you are almost turned into a bot yourself complete with grimy operating tools sawing away at your body). The environments are pretty cool too, nice lighting effects, great player models, exciting and creative environments. While it is a more 'interior environment' game, they did pretty good with the exterior for Quake, but no where near the quality of COD4 or Crysis for exterior game play. Not a big fan of jump strafing so Multiplayer was lacking for me, although it was fun to check out new environments. Quake 4 is definitely a great single player experience, you'll be jumping out of your seat.

_________________________________________________

Crysis: Okay, got to say that Crysis is my second favorite game and here's why:

Vehicles cool (nice variety), open sandbox, huge maps and rich vegetation, great explosions, smoke, etc.

I liked the single player sequence too when 'running from mountain'.... really felt like you were running for your life, but didn't like that it ended on a carrier against a big terrestrial looking (not alien looking) monster to fight. I was hoping and expecting to return to the mountain to defeat the aliens.

Crysis Multiplayer:
I don't like the same buildings, almost every multiplayer map, looking all alike and not being in at least partial ruins (no destruction? weird attitude considering the maps represent different locations around the world). I do like the team work, having missions, being able to employ different strategies, weapons, etc. generally multiplayer is good except the buildings as noted.

_________________________________________________

Call of Duty 4 is probably my favorite online game because of its up close gritty quality. You have to react fast yet stay controled. I like the fact that spotting someone is NOT easy, that the maps are full of vegetation, textures, etc.

I'm more into medium crowded servers, 8 to 16 although I do visit some very crowded 'insane' servers just to change it up. The problem with too many players is that many COD4 maps are small. Sometimes meaning that once you spawn you better toss a nade in hopes of getting a kill before your blownup.

I'm not a fan of 2 elements of COD4, the heli which seems to be using a wallhack (omg) and martydom as one is able to drop a nade after they've been killed (not to mention pull the pin) as both of these are anti-realism and seem over the top.

MOHAA

Indeed, it's an old game but tbh, I like the gameplay. It might be 'outdated' and the graphics aren't amazing but oh man... it owns :D
Cheaters is actually the only thing I can get mad about.

RTCW: return to castle wolfenstein

A very nice game, impressive AI.
It is somewhat linear, though

Since my computer isn't really that great these are my games for now :p

Perfect Dark

Console:Nintendo 64
Developer:Rareware

Reason it is so good: It has by far the best AI and total customization of them also complete customization of weapon pickups maps handicaps slowmo if you havnt played it get project 64 and dl the perfect dark rom problem is that the comp controls suck compared to the Nintndo 64 controls but I would probably say best gmae ever made

Starcraft
http://www.blizzard.com/us/starcraft/
Over 50% of Korea play it you can't say that its not a good game
Probably the best rts ever made k maybe wc3 beats it not sure but really interesting story. With 3 completely different races which used different tactics
Zerg Swarming massing ling rush anyone?
Protoss damage dealers less units yet more powerful I loved the carriers with their swarm drones.
Terran the balanced race as the humans are usually depicted in games average damage and you can mass them more than protoss yet not that good when massed at zerg standards still Tanks were awesome perfect defense
put them in a dropship send them to a cliff where u have to fly to get to and u have sum ownage defense.

Will add more later I remember now

www.Battle.net (http://www.Battle.net)
by far the best ingame (actually before you join games is the better one) lobby period, no other game can even contend to it if you have ever played wc3 (WarCraft 3) you will know what I mean Diablo and starcraft werent as good as they came before wc3 I dont know how they are going to improve it for sc2 probs graphically as Blizzard have said they are improving it for the sc2 release I mean its already perfect maybe rather than making you host your own bots for your clan channel they will supply them or something

(this is kinda not on topic but anyone here good with bot scripting I am interested in learning it thanks)
