Hexen - I love Doom but i really enjoy the shift in focus towards puzzling that Hexen employs. Hexen still on occassion has waves of bad guys to mow down so it has the best of both worlds.

Mine has to be Rainbow 6 Vegas (1 or 2) on the 360.

I loved Raven Shield on th PC, but RSV just totally upped the ante.

It is the FPS that I still play on a daily basis, and probably will do until RSV 3 or whatever it will be called comes out.

Second place would be Ghost Recon on the PC. That is the first game I ever played online.

Unreal Tournament 2003. Back in the days of dial-up I spent most of my summer & half-term holidays playing this game into the early hours of the morning! I never got bored of UT especially with all the new levels and mods constantly being added by other users. And who could forget the crazy Bombing Run game mode?!

What a fantastic game.

Aliens Vs Predator 2 on the PC. Fantastic, atmospheric and better than what was a brilliant first game!

None. Doom was OK until it moved into true 3d, but I haven't got enough fingers and thumbs to control modern FPS's.

I don't think I can choose one. It's out of CoD4, Killzone 2, AvP2, Half-Life 2, or Doom (with the Aliens Total Conversion on it).

Possibly CoD4.

DOOM 2. First FPS played is usually always remembered as the best, and even now this still has me running for cover. Full of atmosphere and even large, open levels give a feeling of claustrophobia which is lost in the 'slicker' looking varieties of FPS. It has its faults, but nothing is perfect.

There've been a few that I've played to death, but I'm gonna be a scrub and say Halo. Seeing two players split up and trap that Elite in a pincer in that demo video convinced me that THIS is where I enter the next console generation.

If I had to choose just the one, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault on the PC. It was tough, but forgiving. It had a cracking mission structure and to this day, the graphics still look great.

if I had to choose two, this would be one and the other would be Blood as well. Bags of humour plus fun weapons as well.

Although not completely Retro, my all time favourite has got to be Killzone on the Playstation 2 (that is until I get round to play Killzone 2 for the first time on the Playstation 3).

The first FPS I ever played: Zero Tolerance on Megadrive.

That game really scared me silly. The fact that you couldn't see more than 5 feet in front of your face had me edging into rooms so slowly, terrified of what might be ahead. I realise that it was Doom's poorer cousin and many of its PC contemporaries are considered more technically accomplished, but this was the very moment I realised how immersive a game could be when viewed from your avatar's skull.

hmmmm

most favourite retro FPS would have to be "DOOM2: Thy Flesh Consumed" or perhaps Hexen, very difficult to decide! :shock:

However talking about FPS's in general I would say UT2k3 "Unreal Tornament: 2003" stole my heart, it is sheer blinding fast with an awesome array of weapons (including chainsaw's lol)!!!

my favourite MOD would be the Team Fortress Mod, great multiplayer class play!

Call of Duty!It was the game that introduced me to the genre.I'm still not a huge fan of shooters but I'm still a huge fan of this game!The cinematic style just blew me away!
