New Game Time

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, im looking for a new game to start playing. I used to play warcraft 3 on a professional level, and then i went to world of warcraft for fun and now im looking for a new game to play competatively. I would prefer a FPS but not CS or CS:S(Played em, dont like em). I have BF2 on one of my shelves but i wasnt really sure on how that game ranks on the competative level. Ive also played America's Army and i must admit that it was fun as hell but i wasnt sure on if it was a game that had a future or was played at events or anything such as that. Anyone have any ideas on what to look into?

Ok here are a list of good FPS games worth mentioning:
Doom 3
Quake 4
FEAR
FarCry
Call of Duty 2

Doom 3 and Quake 4 run on the same engine, so their graphics look very similarily good (except Doom has a more darkish atmosphere). I played them both and loved them. But as always, I would give them first a chance by playing their demos.

not really....some people do play games professionally. As in for money

If you looking at FPS, it depends what you like...team play or just all out deathmatch. Have you tried DOD:s? Or possibly ut04 (unreal tournament 07 is coming out....2007 I suppsose lol.)

Oh and Call of Duty 2 is good online too.

Shame you don't like cs though :/
