    I'm building a new computer and have an itch for a first person shooter type game set in the modern era. Not really interested in sci-fi games like HL2 or Crysis. I haven't heard good things about the latest installment of Soldier of Fortune either and the single-player campaign of CoD4 is ridiculously short.

    I'm just gotten into gaming too and was going to recommend COD4 - it was short but an amazing game IMO. Haven't played MP yet because i'm playing on a POS laptop until my main rig gets back online, but i've heard that MP is really good :dunno:

    I'm hearing mixed reports about the new Rainbow Six installment - not sure if I want to try that or not.

    In spite of your inclination against Sci-Fi, check out Tribes Vengeance. It's from last year so sometimes you see it in the bargain bin for like, $4. You can't afford to NOT try it! :big grin:

    Get Battlefield 2, it's only $9.99 and the replay factor is very high. Soldier of fortune 2 is cheap also and the story mode is long and fun.

    COD4 is most excellent online. I haven't even beaten the campaign yet, but I have 1 day and 8 hours worth of game play since I bought the damn thing on the 8th.

    I play battlefield Vietnam a lot.

    I know what you're thinking..."I thought that game was long dead.."

    well it is. I only play at one server, http://www.tko.clanservers.com/

    probably the best (and one of the few) dedicated battlefield Vietnam servers still running 24/7 in the world.

    but still great game. and when you snipe someone with a 91/30 and then come on here and read people talking about it, its pretty :cool:

    wow I'm a dork

    BF:V was a great game that I'd like to get back into.
    BF2 is a good one, I pretty much only play with the Point of Existence 2 mod. Tacticalgamer runs a great POE2 server if you want the chance to really play as part of a team.

    I haven't tried COD4 yet, but I think if they released the AC130 mission as a stand alone game, I'd never play the rest of the game.

    Shit I still play Battlefield 1942 with it's expansions. I love the whole BF series, except the latest one (BF 2142 or something like that)....just didn't appeal to me.

    I thought Far Cry was an awesome looking game and fun as hell and I just finished Half Life 2 for the first time. HL2 is awesome and if you want a fantastic deal check out The Orange Box.....you get HL2 the original game +2 expansions, Portal and Team Fortress. Anyways that 5 games for the price of 1. Portal is amazingly fun and just great entertainment.....can't go wrong with Orange Box.

    I'm going to pick up COD 4 because I keep hearing great things about it and I loved COD1.

    BF2 was fun, but it won't install on my computer anymore..

    COD4 Hardcore Multiplayer is great.

    Anyone here have XBox 360?

    As for games, I am currently playing COD4, Halo3, and Forza 2.

    The original poster asked about FPS games. I enjoy COD4 and Halo 3 equally. Halo 3 has more features with the whole Bungie.net thing, and the screenshot/replay feature, but COD4 is much more realistic with real guns, and real locations.

    I play multiplayer on all three of these games on a nightly basis. I'd say of these three games, I am best at Forza 2 multiplayer. I can usually hold my own on COD4 multiplayer. I'd say I am a hair above average on Halo 3. I enjoy all three games alot.

    Oh, and before I get flamed for not using my PC to play games. My reason is that I grew tired of pumping money into the never ending upgrade cycle. I rather put my money into guns, paintball, motorcycles, and stuff like that.

    Anyways, my gamertag is Lightsped for you XBox Live users.
