The FPS Thread


Recommended Posts

So I've sort of been out of touch with gaming for a good few years now (since about 2004). I think I've mostly kept up to date on the latest RPGs, but the rest not so much.


Please list all the half-decent FPS's you've played in the last 5-8 years, including the year they were released. I'm especially interested in games released in the 2001 to 2006 period.


Red Faction

Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Aliens Versus Predator 2

Max Payne 1

Halo 1


Jedi Knight 2

No One Lives Forever 2



Jedi Academy

Max Payne 2




Half-Life 2

Halo 2



Quake 4



Half-Life 2: Episode 1


Half-Life 2: Episode 2



What did I miss?

Portal is the only FPS recently that I really enjoyed, but I guess that's more of a puzzle game. I'd recommend Bioshock because it does a great job of creating a unique atmosphere and game space.


I play all the Battlefield games too. BF2142 is pretty great.

I'm playing Halo 3 right now, seems pretty fun although the level design is really stupid.


Edit: A great shooter no one has heard of is Project Snowblind, people complain it's pretty short. Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is a really fun shooter that's different. Those are both Xbox titles though. The best tactical shooter I ever played is the original Brothers in Arms.

Prey. With headphones and an X-Fi preferrably. Kind of innovative while being traditional enough not to feel lost.


that game really put me off when i found strange things on the walls that would poop on me when i walked too close to them :shifty:

Far Cry and Crysis are also some half decent games. Far cry is extremly difficult, but crysis has some really awesome visuals.

Painkiller ("Heaven has a hitman") :shifty:


Mindless, furious action from start to finish. Just plain fun. Released around 2004 I think.

Poop? I always thought they puked ;) Anyway, the whole ship is quite organic. You can shoot the puking holes btw.


either way it's still :x


and some of those doors looked very... well... a little too organic if you catch my drift

FEAR, Bioshock, Far Cry 2 come to mind.



Also, I loved Republic Commando.

Cliver Barker's Undying at least, 2001 material IIRC. Brilliant game. Chronicles of Riddick too, as was already pointd out. And Severance:Blade of Darkness! Yeah, it's a 3rd person action game, but it's godly and the bow zoom is an inclusive feature!


Heretic 2 and Rune are good as well.


Oh, and play the Legacy of Kain games, they should work decent.
