I never saw the appeal in tactical teamwork-based shooters, and that truth hit me hard in the face after a while of BF3.
How is such an insanely teamwork-dependent game supposed to operate when nobody wants to communicate? Does that mean the only way to have fun in BF3 is to join a clan or always play with friends? It certainly seems to be the case, and for a lot of people that is simply asking too much.

Bunkering up with 10 others while getting idiotically spammed by RPG's/M320's/Snipers/Mortards isn't my idea of fun. And don't say "well play on servers where that's not allowed", the playstyle still remains the same. Camp, camp, move a bit, camp camp camp, move some more, camp, die a lot. Oh look a tank rolled up, lets try to RPG it-BOOM, it just 1-shot you. Too bad. Everyone is forced into a single role excelling at exactly ONE specific thing and they are supposed to magically work together as a whole. Yeah, not happening on the majority of public servers. After mercilessly yelling at people to move here and try to coordinate something I simply threw my hands up and said "you know what, why the **** am I even playing this?" and went back to TF2 and Crysis 2.

So far I haven't really come across any shooter that has been more fun and exhilarating than Crysis 2 / TF2 multiplayer.
To expand on Crysis 2, if everyone is playing at similar low latencies it can get incredibly fast-paced and fun! It would've been one of the best sandbox multiplayer shooters out there if Crytek/EA had given a damn about fixing the countless bugs/broken stuff. Nanosuits add a whole new layer of fun due to allowing you to armor up, turn invisible (mostly) or pull crazy feats free-running style like its a giant playground.
Most of all, you actually have a significant say in whether your team wins or not. Unlike BF3, you don't feel like an ant trying to skillfully push a brick while all the other ants are busy pushing other bricks.

I still haven't played anything that was even remotely as fun as cal-m/cal-i counter strike 1.1.

CS:S.

/thread.

No seriously though. Coming from someone who likes TRUE tactics, teamwork, communication, established roles and objectives.... nothing thus far has been able to surpass CSS. Now thats not to say you can't jump into a GunGame Deathmatch server and run around like a chicken with your head cut off, that's fun too. but if you really think about the benchmark, if you will, for competitive FPS gaming.... CSS beats them all, hands down. Granted, MW3/BF3/ARMA/etc/blah look BETTER... but if it looks really cool and plays like crap, it's a fail in my book!

I'm just going to assume you've never watched or devised strategy for 5v5 matches in CS or CS:S. wink.gif

Or watched the professionals play......

But the same can be said of pro Cod4 matches, which is the most run and gun game around... you're missing my point. All competitive gameplay is "tactical" by definition, however CSS has a lot more in common with cod than it does Arma when we are talking about basic gameplay mechanics. CSS at the pub/non-competitive level is run and gun, arma and pr are not.

Historically speaking Moh:AA (the real first cod game) took a lot of ideas from cs, so that in a sense CSS and COD share a common ancestor, CS.

Do you think competitive bf3 or even halo is not played tactically, with tons of attention to strategy?

run n gun but i also like a story. running around killing everything is fun at first, but quickly loses my interest.

the story is what helped games like half life be so much fun

Nothing (as far as FPS' go) besides Quake (and subsequent series) has held a candle to the competitive level of CS. Nothing.

I submit that yes - often 'tactics' are in play no matter the FPS. But CS:S isn't a 'run and gun' in the sense that most people would perceive. In CS 1.6 you definitely cannot run and gun and expect to hit anything. Granted it's much more a possibility with CS:S, but still much less so than most any other FPS games. I don't play 'simulation' shooters like ARMA.

Anyways...

My favorite fps shooter was playing 4v4 versus in Left 4 Dead 2. The coordination required to take out the entire survivor team at the same time, the hectic action if a team changed tactics and just rushed when your whole team was killed and waiting to respawn, picking off the one guy that fell behind, or waiting in one place for 3-4 minutes and then charging someone off a bridge or out a window when they walked past. Add that voice chat was high quality and built in so finding random people that used it was very easy (something all competitive games should have, LOL anyone?). Or when playing the survivors and you realize everything has gone to hell and you just rush past the enemy tank and make a mad dash for the safe room with only 1 teammate beside you. Much more satisfying than playing your normal team deathmatch in COD.
