Default Can anyone suggest an online FPS full of pwnage?

Hey all,

I'm looking for a fairly new online FPS I can get into. More specifically something more along the FFA lines, rather than team based. I plan on picking up the orange box soon, so I'm pretty sure TF2 will cover my team based online FPS craving. Right now I mostly play HL2: Deathmatch, but I find anyone left playing that are hardcore fanatics, and it took me waaaaay too long before I even got my first kill in, lawl. Getting a bit better at it now, but mostly just on DM_lockdown because I'm right stealthy with the boomstick!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Although I'd like a fairly popular one so there's lots of peeps to pwn.

I play Day of Defeat: Source, Counter_strike Source. Those are great games.

However, if you want to play a great FREE online FPS, try QUAKE LIVE

Cod 4 & 5 are the top on-line shooters right now.

I've been debating between these. CoD 5 seems like the logical choice, since it's the newer one. Yet the impression I've been getting is that it's lacking and thus peeps are sticking with CoD 4.

Oh, and I know I could probably google this, but I'd like an opinion on it if it does indeed exist. Is there a CoD 4 expansion? Is it a must if I do go that route? Or does the original still have the majority?

Maybe not exactly your style, but left 4 dead is my favorite online shooter right now.

L4D and try Combat Arms. I am sure it won't take long for you to get your first KILL.

When it comes to Call of Duty its a safe bet that if it wasn't made by Infinity Ward (original creators) its probably Junk. Case in point, CoD3, didn't even come out for PC.

IW made CoD1,2,4
5 uses the same engine but developed by different team. Apparently has a crap load of bugs.
I've been playing CoD4 and TF2 back and forth for over a year now and they are both solid games.

I think you'll get a lot of COD 4/5 recs in here. Likely your safest bet for non team based MP.

You might want to see if you can get a beta key for battlefield heros. I've only played about 30 seconds of the game due my comp crapping out but I have heard alot of positive things about the cartoon shoter.
