OFP 1 imo.

But I could be a little biased because Arma 2 doesn't run that well on my PC (need to upgrade for A3).

I forgot about that game and I used to play it on Xbox!

It's F2P on the PC now.

I don't consider ArmA 2 to be a tactical shooter. That game's focus is on much larger scale modern warfare. It's really the only game in its genre.

As for the best ever? I never played SWAT 4, but people praise that. Rainbox Six Rogue Spear and Rainbow Six 3 probably take the cake. The original Ghost Recons are right behind them.

There hasn't been a real tactical shooter for awhile. It's a genre that could probably exist today if somebody actually put some effort into it.

There is also no reason tactical shooters couldn't work on a console. I just don't think publishers believe there are enough gamers interested in that.

Hidden and Dangerous 2skrat_01

Nice, I'm not the only one who liked it :)

Was buggy as hell, tho.

Six Days in Fallujah was planned for the PC and consoles but got canned:

Wow, I miss the days of the real Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six. Swat 4 was pretty badass too.

I also really liked Full Spectrum Warrior, but I guess thats more of a TPS (third person strategy?) not sure on that one.

Incorrect.

OFP and the first Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six 1-3 were ported to the consoles.

Ghost Recon 2 was actually a console exclusive (haven't played it tho).

and they fail hard. it was bad port. so my point is you cant play tactical shooters with controller.

Not entirely correct. Only 1-2 were ported (and ported horribly). Raven Shield wasn't. RS3 on Xbox is a different game. It uses same storyline and some of the same assets, but the gameplay, levels, weapons etc are all different.

Publishers believe console gamers are literaly to stupid to play them.

And while they're obviously wrong, at the same time it's easy to see why nobody risks putting game like this on consoles, because even if it would succeed at the same time it would do a lot better sales-wise if you put heavy arcade elements into it.

You can, very much so. Hell, the Xbox port of Ghost Recon was superior in some ways. I know it's hard, but stop being such a close minded hermit.

Woah there, Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear had excellent ports on the Dreamcast.

Absolutly no basis behind that what-so-ever.

Considering tactical shooters are far more about slow-paced combat, there is nothing that can't be done with them that can't be done with a controller and smart UI.

Hell, OFP the original worked on the Xbox and wasn't absolulty terrible.

It is not a lie to say the vast majority of tactical shooter fans own gaming PCs. It's just safer to stick with them. I still stand by what I say and I think publishers need to learn that not every game needs to have an AAA budget and sell millions on the consoles. People buy A and AA titles too.

They were on the level of DMC3 port to PC, people just didn't know any better back then.

lolno The PS1 ports were definitely trash but the Dreamcasts ports replicated the PC version extremely well.

The tactical planing mode was terrible on pad and the multiplayer was hopelessly crippled, with most of the modes removed. So no...it didn't replicate pc version extremely well. Just because it was playable (unlike PSX one) doesn't mean it wasn't vastly inferior compared to PC version.

Splinter Cell Conviction.

#122 Posted by pelvist (4556 posts) -

IMO, Cold War Crisis is the best tactical shooter ever, followed by Rogue Spear.

America's Army 2

#141 Posted by halogreatest (110 posts) -
Enough bout the Beibs, the best tactical shooter probably is Block Ops 2.
#142 Posted by whiskeystrike (12068 posts) -

Really enjoyed the SWAT games on PC. Haven't played many tactical shooters though.

#143 Posted by Mario_Eater (344 posts) -
I enjoyed the SOCOM games (namely 1,2,3) on PS2, and I still do on occasion.
#144 Posted by SkyRaid (2001 posts) -

Rainbow 6 ftw. All of those are pretty good though.

#145 Posted by klusps (10381 posts) -

Ghost Recon franchise...16 player co-op= a lot of fun!

#146 Posted by RyuRanVII (4224 posts) -

I believe SWAT 4 is my favorite, followed closely by the original Ghost Recon and it's expansion packs.

thats just as much of a tactical shooter as counter strike :lol:
#148 Posted by Heil68 (43152 posts) -
I would say the old SWAT games.
#149 Posted by nameless12345 (15125 posts) -

C-S is not really a tactical shooter btw.

Anything with bunny hopping in it cannot be considered a serious tactical shooter imho.

#150 Posted by OB-47 (10908 posts) -

Counter Strike still counts as a tactical shooter. Play on the CS and De maps with no mods and it's pretty serious in there.
