Best FPS Game for PC

So I'm bored as hell and decide I want to add another game to my FPS collection because I'm a geek like that.

Throw out some suggestions on really fun, interesting FPS games (one's that don't end quickly, have some story line, etc.)

I'm running a pretty powerful system so most games shouldn't be too much for it to handle.

I finally got round to playing Q4 which is OK, other than that I stick to old school FPS multiplayer Q3A etc.

I don't think you can beat Halflife 2. Counterstrike and Day of Defeat are really fun on line multiplayer versions

Re: Best FPS Game for PC

you looking just for games like doom, quake and the ones listed, or games with the FPS perspective but more survival/puzzle oriented?

The Half life single player is too short and theres little replay value and really good graphics are like playing guitar really fast if you know waht I mean .

If you want to be going for A LONG time, get oblivion, you'll get at least 100 hours before you finish the main quest and youll probably go for another 200 before you start feeling like youve 'finished' it.

Rainbow Six: Vegas - takes some beating. I have got it for my Xbox360 and its absolutely awesome. But its all the same on the PC. Its the best shooter out at the moment. There is so much to do on it, it will last ages too. Me and my friends have been playing it in multiplayer and its even better. Get it, get it, get it.

I dont know about the 360 version but Ive seen videos of the PC one and it looks intense, Ill have to get it for sure. It looks like a cross between rainbow 6 and splinter cell.

Re: Best FPS Game for PC

battlefield 2 is pretty fun
Fear is a neat single player FPS
Brothers in Arms is a nice squad based FPS

If you don't mind crappy/dated graphics in comparison to today's offerings, System Shock 2 is an absolute blast. It's very similar to Deus Ex, but has a horror element to it.

SYstem shock was cool. I got stuck on it though and couldn't find what to do.Fear is pretty wild..The slow-mo effect is somewhat played out(max payne), but it is a pretty solid game..I prefer ww 2 style FPS's.
