I just got a new rig so I would like to grab a good multiplayer FPS to play on it. I've still got my old FPS like Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142(are they still played alot?)

Been thinking about grabbing Battlefield BC2, but I just wanted to check and make sure there is not anything better.

Thanks.

In my opinion it would be CoD4. I've played all of the other big fps titles and CoD4 is the only one that I keep coming back to.

that is a strategy you know? I mean, zombies spawn behind you.. so if you run, you'll be ahead, if you keep running, all you have to do is get to the next event/saferoom/tank. plus there's alot of people who suck at playing infected who wont catch you.

According to steam Modern Warfare 2 is the most played game, but it's obviously not the best.

Team Fortress 2 would be my choice

It's a shooter actually. The most played should be Modern Warfare 2, although I haven't checked the rankings recently.

Nope, no UT is really "alive" compared to the popular FPSs.

Not really, there was a small boost with the big patch but the community has been diminishing since.

Games with alot of people playing now are Left 4 dead 2 ( even 1 has enough players to find games easily ) Team Fortress 2 Counterstrike ( amazingly is still the most played game on steam and its 10 years old ) Modern warfare 2 Bad Company 2 As for Battlefield 2 it still has alot of people online despite its 5years old aready and imo is still the best MP fps created

Bad Company 2

Team Fortress 2

Call of Duty 4 (and 5?)

I've been playing Shattered Horizon recently, it's pretty fun. I don't know how it holds up outside of free weekends though.

I bought TF2 the year it released. I've hit 240hrs played so far since late 2007.

I bought BF:BC2 in March this year. After 4 months I've logged 204hrs played....

Two things explain this:

I joined a clan to play Battlefield right (this is my first battlefield experience)

The depth of realtime tactics, accuracy AND reaction time.

I can't really go back to TF2 at this point. When I do the game feels basic, boring and repetitive.

TF 2 vs any CoD except WaW and MW 2? not so much, all of them are good, but you can't compare TF 2 with BF games, conclusion, you don't like tactical games.

That's the problem with L4D1. The only infected that actually makes a dent is the tank, and if you have a crappy tank, then you lose pretty much.

I know how you feel man, nothing really compares to BC2 with a great squad.

My friends and I literally carry a whole team sometimes because we're the only ones arming the M-coms. We rarely lose too.

Get Left 4 Dead 2. Some great team work, a lot of variety. I've enjoyed it a lot more than BC2 even though that is the flavour of the month with a lot of people.
