Doom on PS1. Only for the fact it was the first FPS i ever played, and the only FPS i've ever completed on all difficulty settings.
Bearing in mind, i don't like FP shooters very much at all is testimony to how much of an impact Doom had on me.

My favourite FPS ever, possibly the hardest question ever asked of me.

I'd have to say that for me there are 3 and there's no way I can seperate them.

Call of Duty United Offensive was my re-introduction to PC multiplayer, and even though it was hardly the most refined of online experiences, the bigger maps that the expansion brought (Italy for one) were superb. The story wasn't as great as the original maybe, but it was still a very involving single player experience.

Star Trek Elite Force - because I was a trekkie and it did everything right; a great Trek game and a great FPS.

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II: Im played it so much I didn't go to A Level maths for 6 months. Failed maths, completed the game. Brilliant story, great open levels and lightsabers!

I could also mention UT, UT2004, HL2, Dark Forces, COD4, COD2, Doom, Quake, Quake 2, Quake 3, Duke Nukem 3D... All of which influenced my gaming life.

Up until last month I'd've said either Duke Nukem 3D or Blood, but then I played Left 4 Dead...
So much personality in each of the core characters, it really can't be beaten for its co-op mode!

Hmmm.... not a fan of the genre really, but I guess I'd go with Clive Barker's Undying.

When I played Wolfenstein 3D for the first time on my 486 33MHz, it reminded me of Virtual Reality. Not long before, I had tried the VR flight sim at the Trocadero centre in London. Wow... I really felt we were close to have VR at home.
Unfortunately I was wrong.
Fortunately Doom came some time later to ease the disappointment.
Even better, I got Duke 3D for my birthday. It soon became my favourite, especially when I got a null-modem cable and a friend willing to bring his whole PC to my house.

I've loved so much other great games such as Quake 3 or Half Life, but Duke 3D still holds a special place in my heart.

I'm not usually a fan of FPS's, but it has to be Bioshock for me. The fact I was a wuss and chose to save the Little Sisters might explain why FPS's aren't usually my kind of game :P

I never once noticed that even though I completed HL2 - perhaps that doesn't happen on the Xbox port?

Duke Nukem 3D, the first game i ever played over a network. wasted countless hours on that game when i was supposed to be studying at college, till the tech guy found out and deleted it from all our profiles along with all my lovingly crafted levels :evil:

If we're talking online - Battlefield 2142. I haven't been able to put this down for 2.5 years, whenever I have a free moment and the wife is out, I fire it up. The teamplay aspect is just fantastic, and the game is far more rewarding to play as part of a well-funtioning squad than just going it alone. The maps are fantastic, pity only 3-4 different ones ever show up on Assault mode.

For solo campaigns - Half-Life 2. I've just finished this one, all 3 chapters, and I never wanted it to end. Brilliant narrative, the way the story pans out is fascinating, City 17 is so beleivable too. There's a couple of sections where your gravity gun is your only weapon, but it becomes 'supercharged' - meaning you can kill enemy soldiers by picking up another enemy soldier and flinging him at them. This has entered my top 3 'funnest things I've ever done in a videogame'.

For Retro - Doom, but I expereinced it most on the PSX. Or should that be plural. I'll never forget the first time we managed to get 2 tellys, 2 Playstations and a link cable all in the same place at the same time. It was the first time EVER we had connected up 2 systems like this, and just being able to see your mate on your screen just blew us away. Then we started fighting. Oh, my god.....a prime example of graphics do not maketh the game, Sure, they were good in 1996 - but not so good that gameplay took a back seat. Amazing game.
