    Blasphemy!!!! TFC was and is the best team based online FPS EVER. TF2 took so long to come out, then when it did it was an abomination.

    Sorry.....I was a member of a TFC clan that is top 10 all time, i put more time into that game than i care to count, but i played competitively for 4+ years, so....long time. TF2 was such a disappointment, pretty much zero TFC players moved over to TF2.

    I will say if you enjoyed the game type, you should check out Fortress Forever, its a game like TF2 but with everything like it was in TFC. It was actually made by ex TFC clanners

    Eh... I've tried TFC when it came out, never really liked it... Don't know why. Was also busy playing UT, then I got addicted to RtCW and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory multiplayers for a while. TF2, however, was lots of fun since the first day of its release, at least untill Valve started to boost up the survivability of other classes with various trinkets while not giving anything really useful or fun to engineers or pyros :-/ I still play it occasionally - it's a pretty good "casual" (which is what I prefer nowadays) FPS with plenty of active population still playing it.

    Ok, to keep this simple I am going to make a top 5 list.

    Duke Nukem 3D - DOS - I even spent 2 years developing a 6 level episode backtracking to the initial invasion and it even had a crashed spaceship, custom graphics, new weapons, and sound tracks.

    Breath of Fire 3 - PSX/PSP - I've played through it twice.

    Twisted Metal Series - PSX / PS2 / PS3 - I've dipped an ungoddly amount of time playing that series.

    Roller Coaster Tycoon - Win 95/98 - also dipped a ton of hours into that game too.

    Battlefield 3 - XBox 360 - abolutley the best FPS you can find.

    Don't forget to thank and like anyone who deserves it!

    I still like PC gaming the best, but the biggest problem PC gaming has compared to console gaming is hacks.

    I am in a group that does a lot of PC gaming and unless you have punkbuster and a server streaming to PBBans, PC gaming is pretty bad.

    The PC gaming group that I am in had a CoD 4 server for a while and we caught like 130 hackers with it. Some of the screenshots we got were unbelievable. We're playing CoD Black Ops 2 now and it doesn't have punkbuster or the ability to stream to PBBans and we run into people going 72-3 in a round.

    Hackers/PunkBuster is the biggest reason I switched to console gaming. Hackers suck and Punkbuster was just as bad. I had so many problems with PunkBuster.

    Hacks/cheats for multiplayer games are a problem, yes (I've dealt with such things since the Unreal Tournament days), but it can be dealt with, all it takes is a dedicated anti-cheat system from game companies themselves (instead of relying on PunkBuster which sucks for many reasons) and/or proper admin tools for custom servers. Like I've said, I can still enjoy a cheat-free gaming experience on many favorite TF2 servers (and if cheaters appear- it's relatively easy to contact those server's admins and get the cheaters banned same day) even though this game is f2p and there are many aimbots/speedhacks exist for it (both free and paid). I'd rather put up with occasional hackers on PC versions than deal with severe limitations (like inferior controller, inferior graphics, very small amount of simultaneous players, no ability to use free user-created game mods/maps, no choice of VoIP programs, etc.) of console versions of same games ;-) Of course not all PC game developers provide adequate tools for dealing with cheaters or tools for creating free mods/maps for their multiplayer games, but I try to not deal with such crappy/greedy developers and their artificially restricted products ;-)

    Currently I've only tried Halo Reach and 3 for FPS but they are awesome! Also, sometimes I just like playing those basic accelerometer games on my WP...

    Being the semi-pessimistic/wordy person that I am, I'll cover two things: Games/franchises I love and games/franchises I hate.

    Love:

    Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts 2, and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories: I only got to play those 3 in the series (sorry, not going to get 2-3 handhelds to play them all), but they're all really good games. I actually never got to finish KH2, but I certainly will eventually (plan to get a PS2 and all of the PS2-compatible KH titles I can).

    Halo Franchise: I'll just name the whole franchise, but I wasn't that impressed with Halo 3, which felt like a step down with multiplayer when compared to Halo 2, and a redundancy of sorts (particularly the ending) from the first installment. Thinking about it, as great as the franchise is, they actually have 4 stellar titles (Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4), one OK title (Halo 3), and 2 that were kind of stinky (Halo Wars and Halo 3: ODST, which I never actually got to play).

    Gears of War franchise: I want to go beat the second and third games on Insane sometime, but I'm bad at replaying campaigns (part of why I hate the way they make you beat the campaign before playing Insane on Gears). I didn't care for the multiplayer after the first game, but it was a nice story, and one of the few games I can think of where there were plenty of well-developed characters, especially surprising because of the genre (shooter) that it was in.

    Unreal Championship: This was THE PLACE to be on Xbox LIVE before Halo 2. It was where I started Xbox LIVE, and I wish that its successor (Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict) had been better and that console gamers had given Unreal Tournament 3 some love.

    Forza 2-4: I didn't play the first, nor have I played Horizons, but I can definitively say that this is the best racing franchise there's ever been. I really liked Project Gotham Racing and a few of the Need for Speed games (specifically the original Most Wanted and Carbon), but Forza is the best that there is.

    Pokmon: I won't list all of the games that I've played in the franchise, but basically everything on Nintendo 64 was in my console at some point, and about everything from Blue to Sapphire made it to one of my handhelds.

    Urban Terror: I'll just point this out as a standout PC shooter that I really liked. It started as a mod of Quake 3: Team Arena, but it's actually a standalone title you can download now. Even today, it's a pretty impressive game because of the need to bandage yourself when shot and the dynamic breath (depending on your remaining health). It was probably the first shooter I ever played, as well as the first competitive-style game I played online.

    I'll stop that list there, as I could go one for a loooong time. Now, to the bad.

    Hate:

    Grand Theft Auto Franchise: I've only played GTA III and Vice City, while also seeing San Andreas played. I've never really figured out what makes these mind-numbing games so great for people. They seemed shallow, repetitive, and without much REAL direction. The open-world play is great and all, but it never felt like it served a great purpose.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2-3: I have to be honest here, I poured a LOT of time into MW2, but after I got Black Ops, I realized how poorly-made that turd from Infinity Ward was. Then MW3 came out, and I was appalled at the fact that they managed to make something WORSE. Those two games are so bad that I'll never buy from Infinity Ward again.

    Assassin's Creed 2: Honestly, the game's not that bad. It just didn't feel like the gameplay varied enough from the previous title, so it was rather bland and unimpressive. I'm now ignoring the rest of the games, despite owning Revelations and living with a cousin who has Brotherhood. I just have no desire to finish up the series right now.

    BioShock 2: I loved the first game. This one? It's really chuggy and sad. I'm supposed to be a Big Daddy, yet I feel like glass. I get that part of the survival/horror FPS games is the scarcity of weaponry, but it's extremely annoying having to trudge through the game so slowly and constantly feel like you're about as strong as a Little Sister, rather than being a Big Daddy. I've been trying to force myself through the campaign, but I basically play for 30-60 minutes than take a 2-month break. Nothing is gripping in the story, the gameplay's slow and monotonous, and I just can't believe how irritated I get playing that game.

    Anyway, I could add to both lists for hours, but I'll stop.

    Man, Runescape. I played SO much of that in junior high and high school. I haven't actually played it in probably 6 years or so, but it was a heck of a time to play with the 3 people in my class who joined me. I even went so far as to have a membership for quite some time. I did hop on there a couple of times over these past few years to see what it's like, and it's incredibly depressing. The inflation's out of control, there's NOTHING new added worth messing with (seriously, Dragon armor's still the best there is after all this time?), and because the non-member bank is so restricted, I couldn't even TRY to play if I wanted. I have probably 200+ unique items in my bank (the limit's something like 50, I think), and many are member-only items, so without resubbing, I can't even sell/trade them. My account's in eternal, pointless limbo.

    Age of Empires 1 & 2 is my favorite(s) by far, then there's the Pokemon series, civilization, and grand theft auto.
    Am I the only one here who is into AoE? I remember playing it as an 8 year old, now I'm 22 and still love it!

    I got into AoE once upon a time. I played a few rounds but once I got into an 8 hour long round and after that I was done. I mean really 8 HOURS of non stop playing and then I won and I said to myself. well. I made it through all the ages. unlocked everything possible and wasted an entire night on a single round of a game with no real story line. It's time to move on, I like girls too. I want to get into it again but I just don't have the time.

    Hmm, I don't play too many video games anymore so most of mine are old school:

    *Turbo (arcade)
    *Galaga (arcade/Namco Museum editions)
    *Ms. Pac-Man (arcade/Namco Museum editions)
    *Tecmo Super Bowl (NES)
    *PGA Tour II (Sega Genesis)
    *NHL '94 (Sega Genesis)


    Other notable devices:
    Windows laptops: Asus VivoBook X202E (Windows 8), HP Pavilion g4-1215dx (Windows 7)
    Chromebooks: Samsung Chromebook XE303

    Rise of the Triad (early 90s).
    Tribes - first multiplayer game that got me really hooked on PC gaming.
    Battlefield 1942 - self-confessed plane wh0r3 who consistently scored top 3
    Battlefiled 2 (PC) - started losing my edge. Probably coincided with getting engaged and less time for gaming.

    Have since moved away from PC to console...I'm terrible. Play Black Ops 2 and I frequently have sub 1:1 k/d ratio.
    Forza series is fun...especially using my wheel in front of our 80" Sharp :-)
    to be honest ever since the kids came along gaming time has been greatly reduced...but I'm ok with that....the trade was well worth it.

    Member items are stored in a separate set of bankslots now. But yeah, I see where you're coming from. Godswords took a royal nerfing too. As for me, my standouts are probably the following:

    • PC: World of Warcraft. Just such an expansive world (more so than Gielinor of RuneScape). Also, it's grippingly realistic. Sometimes, I wish I could just be resting in Teldrassil (yeah, I'm a Night Elf). I haven't played Mists of Pandaria yet (I've owned the game for 2-3 months though), but hopefully I will soon.
    • SEGA MEGA DRIVE: Sonic 1. That blue spiky furball still lives on today, and the original was fantastic.
    • Sony PS1: Bomberman. Endless hours of fun, and endless hours of my mum banning me from the PS1 because I kept destroying her at that game! Ha.
    • Nintendo 64: Limited experience with this one, but for me it's Mariokark 64. I loved that game and it was the first ever Mariokart game I played.
    • Sony PS2: Buzz! I loved the idea of using the USB ports to plug in those quiz-game controllers and just going party style on the Quiz, pretending you won stuff and such. Great game for that Sony console!
    • Nintendo GameCube: I'm going to say Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. I loved the story in that game, so fun as well getting to play as DR EGGMAN!
    • Nintendo Wii: This is a difficult one, but for me, it's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Mario & Sonic in Beijing, trying to win medals? Great way to give a nod to the Olympics. It felt so much better than the games for the Xbox and PS3, as they felt too bland in comparison, despite having better graphics.
    • Xbox 360: Halo Reach. I've got MW3, I only play it because my family plays it. I prefer the Halo series to it. Halo 4 looks really promising from watching my cousin play it a bit, but I haven't had chance to play it yet.

    Great topic Krystea!

    I've played too many games now but if I were to chose the ones that I remember fondly or in some way had a lasting impression on me, here's my shortlist:

    Final Fantasy X (PS2) : The first FF game I actually finished and I remember the ending being phenominal
    Ocarina of Time (N64) : Do I need to say anything? Still the birth of complex, story driven 3D games in my opinion
    Majoria's Mask (N64) : The most original Zelda since Ocarina, all the other big titles since seem to want to emulate Ocarina's formula
    Bomberman 3 (SNES) : The first game I owned when my father brought home a SNES for the two of us all those years ago
    Mass Effect (PC & 360) : Played it once on PC and fell in love, then proceeded to play the whole trilogy repeatedly on 360. Without a doubt the best of this console generation
    Metal Gear Solid (PS1) : If Ocarina of time was the birth of these type of games, MGS was the first time the story had really been gripping, again a franchise I've replayed again and again
    Flower (PS3) : Unique, calming, artistic and amazing
    Crysis (PC) : I built my first PC to play this game (had previously bought pre-made ones), and anyone else who went through that will understand
    F.E.A.R. (PC) : Screw Doom 3, this game gave me nightmares for weeks and was a master of getting under your skin

    Special mention to Far Cry 3 which I'm playing at the moment, it's too early to see if it will be a long term favourite but it's already the best Far Cry I've played.

    So how do I chose a winner? Honestly it would probably have to be FFX, which actually annoys me. The gameplay wasn't that amazing but the story was complex and had a really powerful romantic aspect, I'm not ashamed to say I shed a tear to that ending and the soundtrack "To Zanarkand" has stuck with me to this day. What a shame that since that day every Final Fantasy has progressively got worse...

    Add Metal Gear Solid for PlayStation. I remember how much I loved that game, made quite a few of those sounds ringtones and alerts on my phone.

    UT (PS2)
    CS 1.6
    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
    Choplifter! On Atari! Ah! I loved this game
    Defender! Also on Atari.
    Kingdom Hearts, bought the second one but never played it
    Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest on SNES
    Lemmings - MS-DOS
    Lemmings Paintball
    Yoshi's Island
    And, of course, Doom.

    Brings back some good memories. I'll probably remember more later.
