So, apparently, is your ability to type like a human being or have any meaningful conversation past the contents of your belly-button, but you don't see us pointing that out unbidden... Do us all a favor - Take your 2002 cellphone-text hipster-speak and blow, would'ja? The adults are trying to talk...

"contorls".

This is what happens when you don't stay in school, kids. Take a GOOD look...

I wonder if you'll get accused of censoring people like I was in this thread

*sits and waits*

Do you post another stupid comment again? It depends on the player, the game is not to blame if you are that stupid to play it, you have no skill.

Deal with it.

Perfect Dark 64, no competition.

It is too bad it doesn't hold up today because of framerate issues and such. If it was remade for PC with new graphics, controls, framerate and online it would be the best FPS ever!

rilpas

there's a 360 port on XBLA

it fixes the all of it's issues as far as I know and improves the graphics

BUT it is only on the 360 :(. Should be on PC ;)

well Microsoft owns the franchise and they've ported xbox and 360 games to the PC before, so who knows, it could happen

you do realize pc is the easiest platform to play fps's right. that mouse has good control. But when you play a game like quake where there are no headshots its probably easy to kill people and you must play people who really suck. vs anyone in golden eye so you can cry and whine over the controls and the speed and how there is no reticule

massive crap storm


bro get on my level
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF5hqdc510g

that's what happened when a controller user tried vsing me


But to help your noobness understand
yes, anyone can aim better with mouse and keyboard, however there is no peak limit to how well you can aim.

Most pros use ginormous mousepads so they can move as fast as they want. I use the razer goliathus control L, so does yz50, and most quake pros.

With a controller, if a guy is behind you, you cannot possibly turn fast enough, you're dead.

If you choose extremely high sens, then you cannot hit precision shots.




About quake having no headshots, sure it doesn't. It's way faster paced which makes up for it. If it had headshots the gameplay style would change considerably, in a negative way. The only gun to take advantage of that would be rail.

Which ofc is my favorite weapon, but since the game is so fast paced, all that would end up would be luck headshots.

You can enable headshots if you want though.

Oh and if it's so ez, vs me in quake live. I don't even care what part of the world you live in, I could beat you with 200 ping which is unplayable.

Yes i know your type. You spend all day practicing one single game to be the 'best' but you can't type or spell and have no social skills whatsoever.
Though most Quake players are much better in their minds than they are in reality.

If you were any good whatsoever, you'd be playing Quake3, not the noob-mode QL for the modern kids, you just pick on gamepad users because they're all you can beat. I just watched your video and you're nowhere near the skills that are required to rule in Q3. You'll get your butt handed to you with your propensity to miss your target first time.
If you're really using a mouse and keyboard then you suck bigtime, no point having expensive equipment if you can't use it properly.
-
And don't think for one second i'm some kind of uber-Quaker. I enjoy having a life and being good at LOTS of games, not just one type.

He's probably too young to remember when Quake came out and even the best PCs couldn't run it past 10 fps in high resolutions...

It took untill the GL Quake patch came out and a 3D accelerator for it to surpass consoles.

i don't even play QL that much
I have 18 days or something total playtime and it's my main game.

Also to have good aim you have to be physically fit. Your points are now all invalid.


About Q3 LOL
I'd PREFER q3, but I never played it. The damage system would benefit my playstyle greatly.

Shaft is even stronger, and rail does 100 points.
I am a rail whore and lg whore, I'd love that.

Also you are a joke, once again. I challenge you to any fps.
You would be vsing a guy fatal1ty accused of botting.

The framerate is acceptable, the controls are okay and the AI does the job.

The game is still enjoyable but of course it's not as important as it once was or to be compared with modern shooters.

Same with Quake with it's brown, blocky, poorly animated graphics, non-existent story, primitive AI ("attack-if-detect" type), limited multi-player options, ect.

It's a classic but it should also be treated as such.

He's probably too young to remember when Quake came out and even the best PCs couldn't run it past 10 fps in high resolutions...

It took untill the GL Quake patch came out and a 3D accelerator for it to surpass consoles.

I'd say quake aged quite a bit better, I mean, the framerate for it is far better now then it was back then

and the controls can be changed to WASD

and personally, I tried getting into Goldeneye, playing it on a real N64, but I gave up

Well, PC will always have the advantage of being upgradable, thus running older (3D) games much better than a console can (including mods, altho some of them can change the original experience completely thus should not count when debating the original game).

in this case it doesn't change the experience though

It's strange though, I don't really have this framerate or control problem when playing saturn or PS1 shooters, but try as I might, I just can't get into goldeneye

I don't know what's so difficult playing FPS games on N64.

Turok controls: C buttons = wasd, analog stick = mouselock

only flaw: inverted controls

Goldeneye controls: analog stick = movement, hold R = aiming, C left and C right = strafing

only flaw: it's difficult to hit a target which is under or above while you moving, yet still possible.

I like to mention, Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, both have one of the best aiming sensivity I've ever played on console FPS, such a dream, so easy.

I agree the framerate wasn't the best on FPS games and the N64 in general (basic SDK, awful performance tools) but it's not that bad, for my taste of course. Heck I have no problem playing Perfect Dark even in High Res Mode, sometimes it's laggy, but for the most part the game is playable very well.

I hate aiming with the face buttons, it's why i don't play FPS games on the PSP or the dreamcast :P

and I just couldn't get into Golden Eye, the overall framerate, the aiming, just not a fan.

I have perfect dark on the 360 (the N64 port, not Perfect dark Zero), with improved controls, online play and better graphics and honestly, I think the game is okay, nothing too great

Not only it's not difficult, the N64 pad is arguably better than the PS (DualShock) pad for FPS games (despite having just a single analog stick).

uh no the framerate is not ok
i play quake at 120+fps
no it's not enjoyable, the ai is broken, the controls blow, and the graphics look like ass.

Quake is not just "brown", it has a blueish and black look.
Graphic animations are better than goldeneye's
primitive ai? It's way better than goldeneye's and it does what it's supposed to do.

Ever seen those hostage rescue missions in goldeneye where your partner's ai keeps dying randomly and you lose the mission?

Quake has limited multiplayer options?

LOL

I don't look at games how they were back then, I look at games how they are now and whether they aged badly. Goldeneye has aged like complete garbage.

problems being had? i always lol at goldeneye fans thinking they know anything about fps. Second they play another fps they think it's bad because they don't seem to realize they have terrible handeye coordination for tracking/reflex aiming. Oh and I do love dem old games, provided they aged properly, and goldeneye is the perfect example for a game that hasn't aged properly.

No he's right you suck in Goldeneye and FPS in general, your Quake videos prooved it. Next time you should using Oddjob, he's the perfect charracter for low skilled player like you, then you have a good opportonity to win a multiplayer match against you buddies.

Quake basically has the same AI like Goldeneye and most others 90s FPS: enemy detects you, is not abble to take cover and firing at you. Seriously you complaing about escort missions? Sure Quake does a better job.... moment...... Quake has escort missions?:lol:

The topic title invites it.

"Best FPS before the arrival of Halo CE?" is basically the OP saying "Halo is the best FPS evaaaar, but what was there before the greatest?"

And also dedicated FPS gamers tend to be the most er.. opinionated. If you want to see the hairy underbelly of people who honestly believe they're the gaming equivalents of Jesus then make a topic about FPS's and watch the dellusion floooowww. :)

Halo did nothing for PC gaming. All it was, was an epic FPS with a good story some great music, it proved that the Xbox was suited to FPS games and it was all played on the most graphically capable console of the time. That's what made Halo so good, but PC games had been better before and after the arrival of Halo.

"good vehicle usage"

Tribes 2

"shield regeneration"

I don't think this was seen before Halo, but I don't think that's a bad thing :p

"melee combat"

Not sure what you mean, but nearly every FPS has melee attacks.

"two weapons system"

Rise of the Triad, but it limited you to 4 weapons: 3 that shoot bullets and either 1 magic or 1 missile weapon.
