All i want to now is what happended to all the good fps's of the past. Ya i know everyone loves halo well i don't i think it is slow clumsy and so lop sided. antone with a brain just jumps in the rocket warthog. Where are all the quakes. Am i crazy or is anyone with me.

You are alone in the world buddy, Halo is the best FPS freaking EVER!
PS: I do agree that there are some great oldschool shooters. My personal favorite is Marathon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Quake 4 is coming. Wolfenstein is still kicking. Enemy Territory is pretty big for the Euros - so if you ping halfway decent across the world you might want to give it a shot. :b hehe
Quake 3 still has a bit of a community though most of the people have moved on to UT2k4 or DOOM3. esreality.com has been down for forever. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif It was one of the largest places for the community to get together for Q3.
Yea but UT2k4 kicks some serious ***. I love the vehicles in it and just going on mass road rages http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

cached is also a good place to find the people you want to play those fps's with.

So you play lots of Q3? Are you on IRC?

I'm with you on the Quake thing (well Quake 3 is my favourite game ever) and I love UT2K3 and 4...I admit I've never played Halo at all, but then I also never play anything online - decent broadband is expensive here so I just play lan games.

Nah, my IRC habit has been suffering because of network issues at work (oh, plus they keep trying to make me work for my pay instead of just chat and surf - bastards!)

If you want true oldschool fps my friend, go check out Marathon. You can get it to work on PC with "Aleph One". Just stick that in Google and you should get the site. Aleph One is the Marathon engine that was open-sourced about 7 years ago. Those guys have done a lot with that engine.

Should try out Urban Terror! It's a Quake 3 mod and is a hell of a lot of fun!
Of course the best FPS is on its way in 2 days so, can always just play it as well. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
By the way, talking about Half-Life 2 if you didnt know. :P

RtCWolfenstein is still the best all around fps I've ever played. However, it ruined run 'n' gun mindless deathmatch games for me forever. *cough* I'm talking to you, Quake and Unreal.. And Id releasing Enemy Territory for free? They get a lifetime of loyalty from me, man.

jus to be clear i don't like halo. and it is good to hear that there other old school players out there but i enjoy quake more than any other game so i a little more oldschool than most but i did by ut2k4 and it is fun. the game is so slow though. i have to double jump and strafe dodge everywhere or i move way to slow. oh ya and to eekers i am looking forward to the next in the line of the quake and wolfenstein series. but i was waiting for doom3 to then i was so repulsed i sold it back to eb in a matter of weeks.

oh ya and if anyone is in the mass area i got a irc channel for the local gamers. it is on the efnet server and the channel is named lynnkrew it is not always up because trillian pro hates irc but i am working on that.
