on the subject of fps's, why the hell people like moh:aa is beyond me. That is a game with NO storyline...at all. And no puzzles.

system shock2, now that's a game with a story

WTF is it then? If you tell me that its an RPG, I'll just have to shoot myself.

There's a significant difference in gameplay between that and a first person shooter?

As far as I'm concerned, you're a person, and you go around shooting things, so it's a first person shooter

the fps genre is defined by your perspective into the game. you are looking from the main character's eyes, therefore you are viewing the game in the first person (he is me and i am he, and all that lovely mumbo jumbo).

max payne, rune, oni, metal gear solid, and all them other games, may be great, but they're not fps's, simply based on the fact that you are viewing the game from behind and above the main character. you view the game from the third person, hence 3rd person shooter. sorry rm'.

(btw, after halflife came deus ex, which i thought was frikkin' awesome... can't remember what else.)

but moh:aa isn't fun, it's boring. granted, it starts off good, but there is no stringing together of the missions.

Man, back when I still had time to play UT'03, I could own you all.

My fleet of migs are unstoppable. If you want to go Allies on Allies, it all comes down to who can wield their light tanks better, and build their cruisers the fastest.

jor ass = pooned by me
