HA! I hate shotgun users. I'm getting pretty good at the game using semi-automatic sniper rifles, carbines and light machine guns. These weapons all require some skill to place the bullets where you want them. And then along comes buddy around the corner in a CQD map and ends my kill streak with 3 randomly aimed, rapid shots from his DAO-12, a gun that takes no skill to operate.

If someone uses slugs in his shotgun, then I have respect for that! I'm thinking here of the 870MCS with slugs...that's a single shot kill, but you need to be able to hit the target with the first shot, otherwise you're dead, as by then I'll get the 2-3 bullets from my M417 into you.

Nah, after seeing how a good pilot could dominate an entire map I got a joystick and just practiced until I became very good at the jet and would run up scores like 80-2 (usually the 2 deaths were crashes into lamp posts lol)

Even my own clan guys wouldn't quit bitching about it on our own server, so I just thought "screw it, I'm not having fun any more due to all the complaining and kicks" so I quit playing.

Whenever I see this thread while browsing new messages, I pause to consider what my top five might be, but I'm not able to reach a conclusion.

I think that's because I've been a gamer for 30 years, and like sports stars it's difficult to compare titles from different eras; especially because I've changed so much during that time frame.

So instead of giving my top 5 games, I want to give some credit instead.

1. Quake: Every polygonal 3D shooter since its release is derivative of this title. It defined first person 3D gameplay.

It was also groundbreaking by introducing Quake C and Quakeworld, both of which dramatically shaped the gaming industry. When I look at modern gaming communities, I see cultures deeply rooted in the irc channels and forums of clans and early gaming leagues.

It may not have been a great single player game, but its template and tools spawned something much greater than itself.
