I'm looking for some FPS' to buy. I already own Raven Shield and know that Half Life 2 & CS are good, but I don't like playing online (I can't trust my teammates).

I've always loved Battlefield 1942, with the expansion there's tons of maps to play on.

I think there is a sequel to it coming out soon...

I just rented Doom 3 for the Xbox, as my PC sucks and next computer purchase will be a Mac, so my Xbox will be my gaming rig. I've never played the PC version, but the port is amazing, fantastic graphics, frantic gameplay + Original Doom console action :D

What kind of FPS's do you like?

I would add Call of Duty, Far Cry, and Painkiller to the list of titles to consider for relatively mindless shooter action.

Unreal Tournament is quite good as well.

The single best FPS out at the moment would be FarCry. Excellent game, a good military feel to it while still being arcadey and fun. Ridiculously good graphics and scenery (youre fighting on a jungle island and it LOOKS like a jungle).

Half Life 2 is also excellent... really really fun. If youve got the Xbox then Halo2 is probably my number 2 'modern' FPS, exceptional fun and an awesome storyline if you feel like getting into it.

If you feel like the classics though, find yourself System Shock 2 and the original Deus Ex in a bargain bin, the graphics arent all that (especially SS2) but the gameplay is intense and captivating and both games have really good RPG elements. System Shock 2 is my vote of all time best game ever (and so very very very scary).

Something with a good story. Also lots of shooting.

Serious Sam is my all time favorite random shooting explosions and death game. It's really silly but great fun to play.

I recommend Half-Life 2 quite highly. Definitely one of the best FPS games I've played, and probably the best I've played in the last few years. I wouldn't bother with Doom 3 personally, unless you can get it for a dirt cheap price.

Half life 2 is getting expanded in the very near future too don't forget!

Halo if we're talking pc, and halo if we're talking xbox.

Many others, but they have been mentioned already. 42's great, as is bf 'nam, and bf 2 is due shortly.
