I have Battlefield and COD. I haven't touched either in about a year, but I still throw down on this every day.

Geotpf: All Modern Brown Shooters bore me.

I can't wait for the cycle to come back around to WWII again. When were the last ones? CoD3 was 2006. BF1943 was 2009, but that one hardly counts since it was just the pacific maps.

The first Battlefield 1942 is a decade old now. Even if they just took it (weapons, levels, etc) and moved it up to todays graphics and engine, it would kick all sorts of ass.

Bane of Broone: I have Battlefield and COD. I haven't touched either in about a year, but I still throw down on this every day.

I stopped playing TF2 when I somehow, no matter what server, no matter what auto-balancing, I'd end up on the losing team. And not just "oh, I guess we lost but good try guys" losing, but just gangbusters farking shiatstomped on. Like I'm the only guy going for objectives while everyone else either turtles or farms headshots as Sniper. And no matter what, even if I switched to the team that just had four Medics, I would suddenly be playing without any Medics.

Love that game, hate the players. Hell is other gamers.

Flappyhead: Shakin_Haitian: I'll just hide behind this wall for three seconds. Healed up in a jiffy.

That's what always made me laugh about modern shooters.  The fanboys all scream "Realism!  Only two guns!  Most accurate gun and vehicle models EVAH!!!" but still want regenerating health.

/Resistance 3 was such a fun trip down nostalgia lane

I only play totally realistic games, where if one bullet or large piece of shrapnel hits you, you have to fall back and hope to find a medic before bleeding to death.  You then get sutured, medevac'ed, then spend several in-game months in rehab before you are allowed back into the action (assuming you are not permanently crippled).  In most cases you are just medically discharged and then you get to the minigame called "fight the VA for your rightfully earned benefits while going into massive debt and suffering from PTSD." That's the lucky outcome, too - in some cases, you are actually killed by your injuries, in which case you have to buy a new copy of the game and create a totally new character if you want to play any more.

JeffMD: I'm sorry... were you kids saying something about which FPS was better?

[ image 350x355]

God damn I love that game. Free to play and doesn't require investing any money to be competitive. Buying weapons with money or just using earned certs doesn't give you access to weapons that are any better than the regular ones, they just match your play style more closely. The vehicles and infantry have to work together to be effective. The squad/platoon mechanics and communication are what BF3 envies to be. The game is constantly being updated with more content and features to keep it fresh (again, all free).

I just hit the max on my subscription to earn XP and certs so I'm able to have a more diversified loadout for each situation. Support roles are greatly rewarded (medic and engineer classes are my favorite).

When I want an arcady shooter, I'll fice up COD on the 360. When I want a large tactical shooter it's PS2 on my PC.

Also, NC for life!

Big whoop. Chicago has that many shots fired in a 3-day weekend.

There's still one I would recommend for the single-player: Spec Ops: The Line.

It does a pretty good job of calling out your standard modern shooter tropes and can make you feel like a remorseless dick by the end.

Smeggy Smurf: How is the single player?

BF3 single player was OK.  I've played through 2 or 3 times for shiats and giggles.  Th earthquake in Iran/Iraq which lights a fire under the story is an interesting premise.
