Left 4 Dead. Call of Duty 4 is awesome but it's gotten old by now, and IMO Call of Duty "5" is mediocre. And "DOTA" isn't a game, it's a Warcraft 3 custom map/game type.

If your looking for online play, and if you don't have it already, TF2 is a great game with a large variety of maps. While L4D is a good fast paced game, it lacks in tactics, and variety, basically R'N'G while in TF2 you have to coordinate more. As for single player, Fallout 3. A large game with lots to explore plus they are already going to have expansion packs out very shortly.

Your glazing over the team game play in l4d, especially when playing at advanced/expert or in versus mode. Not to say it's better then tf2, or worse, just that there's a little more to it then "R'N'G".

I vote for Cod 5 if you like WWII FPS! Or Cod 4 if you like Modern Warfare FPS!

I can't vote for L4D since i haven't played it just yet. But it seems to kick major arses!

L4D FTW! I've only beaten one chapter on expert...Death Toll I believe? The game has huge tactics and you're always on the run. The best part is that it's always different each time you play it. And if you idle for too long either more zombies will attack you or the Tank will obliterate you! On expert, two hits from the tank and you're dead.
