Another month and another question.
This time I'd love to know what your favourite first-person shooter is.

Guessing most people will go for either DOOM or GOLDENEYE but think I will choose Call of Duty 2 (360)

For me it would have to be on-line, and on the PC. The way they should be played. :wink:

Most played would be CounterStrike from the Beta's up until there were more cheats than players!

Most ENJOYED = Battlefield 2142, simple rank system and enjoyment rapidly increases from proper teamplay. I was never particularly any good at it, but I could still be crap, follows orders and have fun.

Blood by Monolith. What other game gives you an aerosol can and a lighter as a weapon? Fantastic game.

Medal of Honor: Frontline. Looks fantastic, sounded even better and you get to shoot lots of germans.

DOOM .... the original version on the PC.
Without a doubt, DOOM introduced me to the world of FPS.
There's nothing I enjoy more than blasting the crap out of some mutants/aliens/whatever they are!
Something about the rawness, the look & feel and the playability, keeps bringing me back to the original DOOM game, not to mention the choice of weapons (chainsaw anyone?) which also make this one enjoyable game.
OK .... I know the graphics are blocky, and it has a cheesy MIDI tune, but that's also part of the fun for me, bringing back all those memories of why I actually envied PC owners at the time (I was still firmly in the Amiga camp)

Long live DOOM.

Exhumed. Those that have played it will tell you how much it jumps up and down on Doom.

Ooooh, contraversial! True though.

I'd have to say Call of Duty 4 is my favourite FPS. Its one of the few that I've actually really enjoyed and felt compelled to finish, ace online mode as well. Though Doom and F.E.A.R are close behind it.

I much preferred Quake to Doom, and that probably remains the FPS I've played more than any other. However, I've bought second-hand copies of Perfect Dark and Timesplitters 2 recently and I'm expecting to get a fair few hours of enjoyment from both of them.

I was gonna say Half-Life, but to be honest the last quarter of the game which is essentially Manic Miner in space kinda ruined it for me.

So instead I'm going to plump for Medal of Honor Allied Assault on the PC, which I found an enthralling and visceral experience.

I used to like FPS prior to the whole Halo/Call of Duty/Killzone thing, hell I'd say when they were still 2Dish with some 3D elements. So DOOM is my most loved and replayed FPS game ever. However I must say that it was Half-Life 2 that gave me the most satisfaction.

All recent FPS's give me motion sickness, but even so, none of them beat Duke Nukem 3D for sheer fun.
HADDOCKEN!
