Anyway, FPS schmefPS. Let's put an Amiga slant on this. What those guys should be playing is a grand Super Skidmarks tourney. Now, that takes skill and ruthlessness to win. The faint sound of an anguished nerd on the other side of the hall, as he is taken out with a sideswipe...
Okay, so how many people have played Genetic Species the ??

Question Who has played Genetic Species?

Me! Me!

Nice playability and good atmosphere, and technically impressive considering the low hardware spec it demands. Nice lighting.

The bad guys need to be a little more menacing, though.

I curse the creators of these games to an eternity of having a massive boulder pressed against their chest as they lie in a pool of sulfuric acid and are forced to listen to the "Best of Yma Sumac" album forever and ever.
Funny thing. A few years ago, I did the same with Capcom because they created Street Fighter 2, and then 9 of 10 new games were beat'em ups. Today I enjoy beat'em ups more than in the past

Athoulgh I agree the case with FPSs are much worse today.

Super Skidmarks on a lan would be MUCH MORE FUN than any FPS anyday . I personally don't like online gaming too much, there's no interaction with other people, and it feels too lonely and sad

Playing on lan with friends is better.

Apart from in Counter-Strike of course - with a voice activated headset.

Things get *very* tactical when you can talk to your team mates!

I just love Q3 cause there is no hazard in the game, you don't lose cause one impossible headshot, you lose because you are not enough trained and lack of strategie & skill. Moreover, the mouvements are fast & very precise.
I agree. Q3A is fast and furious, with no irritating head shots to slow you down. It's much faster than UT, the weapons are better and more evenly balanced, the graphics and sounds are better, the levels and characters are more interesting...it beats UT hands down IMO.

I'm not one for tactics, so I don't like Counterstrike either. I find the whole CS damage setup unfair- you can fill an enemy's kneecaps with lead with a submachine gun, but they won't go down. Then they take you out with one shot. It's frustrating.

I got halflife for my pc the day it was realeased, it was brilliant, I have been playing counter strike since the origional version was launched and love that to. Counter strike kicks ass.

Anyone who plays CS online look out for me,

I thought Half-Life was boring. Most of the game was crawling through air vents and watching the scenery change. In fact, you might say this was half of the game's life.

I am not alloooonneee

I play under the nick "Heffa" and usually play on UK, French, German or any other server with a low ping from the UK. Frequently playing when I should be doing CAPS stuff, but you know what it is like - an addiction!

I don't like CS, but I thought Half Life was great. One of the best PC games ever. So much atmosphere, along with Thief 2.

Recently, my fav multiplayer game has been Mechwarrior 4. Yes, I know it is a Microsoft product:eek , and I don't like Microsoft either, but it is such a great game, and it's awesome in multiplayer mode. Very fast, a good difficulty that pleases both experts and beginners, and a real sense of being on the battlefield. Weapons are very satisfying too
