What is your favorite FPS? This may seem silly in a "Jedi Outcast" forum, but I think there are alot of "individuals" in here that would surprise us with their answers!

Is Max Payne really a FPS? I mean you see him from all angles so it's more of an action arcade rather than a shooter....do you agree? When I am talking about FPS, I am refering to the ones where all you see is the back of a gun and run around blowing up things and looking for keys or key cards and stuff like that. Old school crap!

07-30-2002, 07:57 AM
yeah i would say payne is a shooter, but not FPS. anyways, i Tribes is my fav, but its not on there so i voted MOH (no yoda? ;))

Nope, no Yoda this time. You know there are so many FPS games out there, so I tried to put in only the really popular ones just to see who likes what.

07-30-2002, 08:04 AM
yeah i know i was only joking

Sall good, Payne is a fun game.....I gave it a try during a family get together last Christmas when one of my Brother in Law's realatives brought over a PS2. It is definitely a game I will purchase when I get the chance! I probably could have put Syphon Filter in there, but it is not really FPS either.

07-30-2002, 08:17 AM
nope thats #rd person too. Max Payne is a great game tho

07-30-2002, 08:17 AM
Max Payne and Syphon Filter are not first person shooters. First-person shooters are games with a default first person view, obvious example is Quake. The Dark Forces Series, of course:) JO is my fave 1st person shooter, need I explain why:D

btw, you are making a lot of polls aren't you Groovy?....

...lol:D j/k, its cool:thumbsup:

edit - Max Payne is great!!!:D :D

07-30-2002, 08:19 AM
i made one too *hopeful smile :)* please....vote...:(

I voted for Doom because it's the one that started it all and was a landmark game in its's time. A true classic to be hailed by all.

dont forget doom isnt dead yet doom 3 is soon to be released

07-30-2002, 09:05 AM
i feel a cetain degree of loyalty to be paid to Quake, so much time going through mindless fiends big teddy bears with blood on them and those bloody things that amke annoying noises and fly!

07-30-2002, 09:12 AM
Why isnt half-life on the list?

Half Life is a 3rd person shooter not 1st person!

07-30-2002, 09:17 AM

actually wolfenstein 3d started it .... now THAT was a classic

i know u get this alot with ur polls groovy

BUT U MISSED OUT UNREAL!! and Deus Ex .... if theyre not popular i dunno what is!

i wouldve voted UT cos it is my all time fave mindless killing game :) no story (well almost no story) .. no plot .... just murder

i voted dark forces insted

07-30-2002, 01:59 PM
Holy crap. Unreal, Half-Life, Tribes, Deus Ex all missed. If I voted in this poll I would feel dirty, so I abstain.

07-30-2002, 02:03 PM
T2 for me.....

And Canoli, you are dirty :p

Perfect Dark was probably my fave FPS, but alas no vote option for that. the bots were really tough. and the maps rocked!

For the PC I like MoHaa, Soldier Of Fortune 2 and RTCW.

Weird they are all based on the quake 3 engine and I cant stand quake 3, maybe its because of all the silly guns, I prefer at least some element of realism.

07-30-2002, 02:17 PM
i personally like UT's silly guns

theres nothing like the sound of the minigun getting up to speed

aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh :bored: <dribble>

07-30-2002, 02:28 PM
Is that the one a bit like a gattling gun, that one is wicked.

I think what i meant was it was a bit tooo fantasy for me, I prefer army stuff to Mutant spacce ninjas and stuff

07-30-2002, 02:32 PM
I'm shocked that I seem to be the only one who voted for NOLF. I still think every single one of those SP levels were creatively made and playing them never felt like I would be running down same hallways, shooting exactly same villains or even using same weapon because any other designed for the game would be underpowered opposed to it. You also can't forget humour which added a lot to the story and atmosphere; when I still remember that one guy who had to "give" his parachute praying for hay I start to smile. ;)

Also, having a heroine as a main character is always a great plus in this world of numerous macho heroes; don't be tempted to believe that I though Lara Croft was great though, because I simply can't stand those who try to mimic good old Indiana Jones.

07-30-2002, 02:42 PM
Star Trek:Elite Force beats the shat out of Dark Forces IMO.


07-30-2002, 05:08 PM
goldeneye for the n64 was a great game. i voted for moh great game with great graphics. the one for ps2 is also cool.

07-30-2002, 05:15 PM
I had to go with Dark Forces, because that was the game that got me into FPS. Not to mention it's a Star Wars game, and obviously I continue to play the series today.

There are alot of FPS games out there, sorry if I missed your favorite.:( The problem with polls is that there is always something that is not on the list because of the 10 poll maximum.

07-30-2002, 05:20 PM
yeah but some of those arent even a shade on Unreal and Half Life

it wouldnt be so bad if it was full of good games

07-30-2002, 05:22 PM
DOOM, was an all time classic. but i think Aliens Vs Predetor 1, 1 gold, and 2 were the funnies FPS ive played

Shadow Angel
07-30-2002, 05:36 PM
What? No Unreal Tournament? That game rocks!

I'm going to have to vote for Doom. That game is the ultimate experience. I can't wait for Doom III to come out.

Darth Groovy
07-30-2002, 06:12 PM
I know I should have put Unreal Tournament up there instead of Alien Trilogy, but it's too late so deal with it.

Also I don't think they are making another Doom game are they? After Final Doom I thought that was the end.

P.S. I am getting flamed on all of my polls so let me remind you all that there are only 10, I reapeat 10 possible poll choices, If I forgot one...sorry ok? I didn't put Turock, Duke Nukem, or Goldeneye up there either so what can I say?

"Why didn't you put (insert game) on this poll. I can't believe that isn't on the list.....wah wah wah, blah, blah, blah.

Dude you forgote ones for the 64! I loved the old Goldeneye game, now i love the new bond for the Ps2!!

Darth Groovy
07-30-2002, 06:42 PM
Well I said Godeneye in my last post but I didn't put it on the poll cuz I don't think anyone is really playing that one anymore. Is 007 for PS2 any good? I love James Bond Movies!

07-30-2002, 07:29 PM
I vote for JK1...
even though its not there

07-30-2002, 07:59 PM

I loved Final Doom for PSONE, I played it to death! I bought that bad boy for about $24.99 and was in complete heaven for days! I voted Dark Forces on this poll because it was the first FPS I ever played.

Also if nobody has ever played Serious Sam, I highly recomend it, that game is just plain nuts!

07-31-2002, 07:53 AM
serious sam didnt look that good to me

07-31-2002, 07:58 AM
I know what you mean...it looked so repetitive and boring really...

07-31-2002, 07:59 AM
looked kind of like a frag fest, the only good game like that i can come up with is UT, which got sorta boring after a while too :( assault mode was great tho

07-31-2002, 08:10 AM
Now, I know I'm gonna get flamed for this comment, but here goes:

Jedi knight 1+2 aren't 1st person shooters, since you're always wielding you're lightsaber and therefore watching his back.... I played through most of those games only using lightsaber, only changing to the sniper when some far away baddies needed to be dealt with in fashion. Heck, I even tried to mindtrick my way through the entire game once. Didn't work though...

And multiplayer is all about the saber for me, no stinkin' 1st person view here.

And if I may:

Serious Sam is utter crap to me, I left the doom days a long time ago...

07-31-2002, 08:13 AM
i dont think your going to get flamed for that. but you never know...

07-31-2002, 08:14 AM
They are primarily 1st person shooters. The default view for all of the weapons except for the lightsaber is 1st person view.

Darth Groovy
07-31-2002, 08:14 AM
You have an excellent point. The first Dark Forces game however had no lightsaber....but I see what you mean.

The main thing I like about serious sam is that it is a FPS that isn't so damn dark and dingy, I mean some of the desert levels you can almost get a sunburn it is so bright! and also the enemies come at you by the thousands.....it's a silly game, but really is alot of fun IMO.

07-31-2002, 08:15 AM
yes, my friend never uses the saber, only in duels

07-31-2002, 08:16 AM
There seems to be absolutely no AI in Serious Sam...the 'serious' in the title is kind of a contradiction then...:D

07-31-2002, 08:18 AM
yeah nothing serious about it

Darth Groovy
07-31-2002, 08:29 AM
Did I forget to mention there is a snow villiage level on Serious Sam the Second Encounter, and you can play as Serious Sam dressed up like Santa Clause!??!?! HO!-HO!-HO! yes!

i think this proves my point

07-31-2002, 09:57 AM
Wow...this game really is very 'serious':rolleyes:.....:Dhehe

07-31-2002, 09:59 AM
