    Thanks for this, Khanzer. Because you invited intelligent discussion I will intelligently discuss.

    Personally, I'm not a huge fan of FPS games, but my bf is into some of them. Since we usually play coop games together, he will sometimes buy me a copy of the game he's playing and I'll play with him. For this reason I played MAG and CoD:WaW (for the zombie maps) on the PS3. I'm not terrible, but I'm not super great, and I don't play it on my own. Recently he bought me Battlefield 3, which I was playing the campaign to get the hang of it (haven't played the multiplayer together yet). It's decent, even fun at times. I skip through the story because it's boring as shit, though.

    While the new FPS look good many seem to suffer from COD;MW2-itis. (same plotline again and again)
    I really want to find a game that was as deep as VtM;Bloodlines with today's graphics.
    that isn't Skyrim.

    also get rid of fucking bloom ohmygod
    "PPHHHHOOOOOSSSSSHHHHH OH MY FUCKING EYES, DADDY HELP ME AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"
    Bloom kills.

    Reason why I don't play for the storyline. SPACESPACESPACE-okay back to killing.

    VtM:Bloodlines was an FPS? I never played it, though, so maybe I'm confusing it with another game in my head.

    Lololol. This so much.

    What's the point of making threads anymore if a cute octopus thing is going to make a better version of said threads?

    Well played, Khanzer, but I am not so easily defeated.

    indeed khanzer, he isn't easily defeated.
    you can't defeat what didn't qualify to compete

    FPS's were good for a while, they are just getting beaten to a pulp to the point that its boring as crap.
    TPS's are where its at for me now

    Meh. I'll take Serious Sam over any other FPS series these days. How people can stand to buy the same monotonous gun porn every year is beyond me. Duke Nukem Forever was shit, but at least it had a sense of humor.

    What are the other two? The first and last kind of look like GoldenEye, which made me think that you had thought they all were.

    The first one is indeed GoldenEye, the last one is the first Medal of Honor.

    I enjoy FPS, though more science fiction or historical fiction compared to a modern war one. I know people hate it, but I love the Halo series.

    I like some of them; Bioshock, Portal, Mirrors Edge.

    There's a ton of them though; can't really call the entire category of games shit/good.

    This is exactly my point. While you can consider Bioshock to be a FPS, you can't really consider ME to be as such. And Portal? Forget about it.

    Deus Ex:HR was the last good FPS game. It actually required one to use that thing in their head called a "brain," instead of using the highly innovative gameplay concept of having you repeatedly shoot at Russians Islams Terrorists Foreign people.

    Depends on how you skilled your char though - on my first playthrough I did practically no shooting, first-person or otherwise (but lots of stabbing from behind and sneaking around. Which meant I was screwed in the bossfights where not using guns was not really an option. Still a great game though, with the fan made patches you can even play it without some gamestopper bug requiring a reinstall every 3 hours.

    I like FPS, provided they are far away from the CoD school of game design. Corridors with script sequences don't do it for me. If I'm gonna swallow corridor levels, they have to have some serious diversity gameplay-wise - Metro 2033 for example had you doing so much different stuff the linear levels hardly mattered to me (plus some of the levels were not all that linear - some of the stealth parts you could pick some pretty different routes).

    Halo had some great non-corridor levels (think silent cartograph), but some really stupid linear ones (the library) too. My favorite FPS of all time is probably System Shock 2, with Tribes: Vengeance a close second.

    So, in summary, I voted "I like some".

    Btw, there are games with really linear levels I really liked - the Max Payne series (that construction site level in MP2 was the shit esp. the part where you played as Mona covering Max's ass - the banter!). Not first-person, though.
