    Hey all,

    i just upgraded my Athlon machine with a kick butt Geforce card, and wanted to know of some cool online FPS type games i could try.

    i used to be a HUGE Counterstrike, Team Fortress nut, but are these still as popular despite the slightly dated graphics? lookin' for somethin' with some more pizzaz, and yet that runs fast for online stuff and has a large community like the favs of college.

    how are all the new ones? how are the newer WWII games? Medal of Honor, Wolfenstein, Day of Defeat, etc.

    and pleez, NO hyper deathmatch kinda deals. hate the run and gun games. lookin' for something different & interesting with a twist like the ones i mentioned.

    Battlefield 1942 is by far the best online fps out there right now IMO (and many other ppls opinions, it won best game of the year from many magazines and websites). What can I say, you can fly, drive tanks, use battleships, or just be plain infantry. Its horribly fun and the mod Desert combat is just about better than the original game. I say go with this game.

    And about Counterstrike (which I think is the most overrated game ever) and team fortress, Counterstrike is still running strong and Counterstrike 2 (thats not the real name, I forgot it) is coming out soon. But team fortress has lost alot of players and is starting to die out, Oh Team Fortress 2 where art thou?

    I haven't been a gamer for months, I've played a few console games, but that's it.

    My brother plays planetside constantly. So I figured, I'll give it a shot, looks kind of fun. Daaaamn, now I'm starting to get hooked, I played a lot yesterday and the day before, and I'll probably play some today too.

    But on the plus side, planetside isn't very...erm...lasting.

    Like, it's the same stuff over and over again, I frankly get sick of it after a couple games.
    but the combat is still lots of fun.

    for those that don't know Planetside is a futuristic, MMOFPS, It's not unlike halo, or unreal tournament, just with thousands of players at once.
  4. I never thought Battlefiled 1942 was really all that seems a bit overrated.

    But I'm a huge Counter-strike fan. I'm on 56k so the lag can suck sometimes. I still play it maybe once a week, sometimes more. A remade version of the original counter-strike is coming out for Xbox, and will contain bits of Counterstrike: Condition Zero thats comes out later this year.

  6. Day of Defeat owns BF1942 (IMO, of course). I used to be a CS nut, but DoD dragged me away. It's a lot more gritty/intense (with less k3wl d00dz).

    I beta tested Planetside. Fun game, but there's really not much to do after a couple of weeks...
