I've got dozens of games, loads of consoles, but the only game I seem to play is Halo. So obviously my vote goes to Halo! I haven't played campaign, and I probably wont, but it's the only game I enjoy playing online with my friends. I've totally lost interest in gaming ever since I worked in a games shop.

As for the gamers thing! Why are people treating this title as something to be proud of? Most of my ex colleague friends are gamers, but none of them wear this title as some sort of accomplishment!

It's already considered a sports, bro. You can even represent your nation in gaming.

( Oh and I voted Black Ops )
I think, in general, it's because gaming is more of an interactive mode of entertainment than the ones you mentioned. It's also very competitive and is usually designed around achieving some kind of goal/meeting a challenge.

I think the term seems okay for simply being a descriptive term. (Not that I'd call myself a hopscotcher if I enjoyed playing hopscotch lol...but maybe I would if the term was coined within the given community.)

As for the FPS debacle: Personally, I don't really care what a person plays/what they play it on. If they're playing games (even if it's just a single genre) then they're gaming which, in turn, makes them gamers. Although I fail to see what the appeal is in the traditional FPS games...Maybe hybrids like systemshock, Bioshock or Dues Ex >.>....but to each his/her own.

Note: I do not actually play hopscotch.

Anyway the king of FPS games for it's multiplayer is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on Rush mode.

Puts all other FPS games to shame. Destructable environments, drivable vehicles and helicopters, squad based teamwork.
Agreed.

The first Halo's campaign was fun for me. It was great playing with friends. After that... it started to get dull. The Halo concept is respectable, there's a lot of work that's been put into the title... but somehow it doesn't seem to be as satisfying as it was designed to be. Though, their multiplayer aspect has always been a step above the story mode in terms of fun.

Bad Company 2 is a beast of an FPS -- particularly for those that can appreciate a higher level of realism. Destructable environments, unforgiving bullet physics, and vehicles: the three primary features that make for countless intense multi-player matches. Especially the bullet physics. It wards off a lot of the BOOM! heashot...! type-players, which is definitely good in my books. Don't forget Hardcore mode.


I like the CoD:MW series. Black Ops is annoyingly gimmicky, but MW2 before it was good, in my opinion. The customizable options (attachments, perks, equipment, gun camo) were fun to play around with.

Oh yes! Quake 3! My friends and I would hook up on the internet at school and annihilate each other, during lectures.

Incredibly late EDIT: I thought Serious Sam was reeeeaaaallyyyyyy fun, with the build-in humour and all that kick-ass crap.

The single player campaign in the original Crysis was pretty good fun I thought. The multiplayer was crap. Better in Crysis 2 though.

Anyone played America's Army 3? Or the previous versions? Completely free to download and play and although plagued with quite a few bugs a pretty good FPS considering it's free.
