Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, CTF, Assault, Control Points?

What's your favorite game mode for online shooters? Why?

Just mindless deathmatches, but I do like playing CTF and control point type modes here and there are great too.

Well, for me, CTF is kick ass in just about any game. When there's a goal, and you're frantically chasing down the flag carrier trying to stop them, it can get really intense and fun.

I really like Gold Rush in Bad Company. I'm into gametypes that involve heavy teamwork and that involve heavy back and forth between the two sides.

Just Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, or controlling nodes.

I like Attack and Defend type modes...as well as CTF. But usually those modes suck with unreliable teammates.

I really like me some deathmatch, but game modes where you capture control points are lots o' fun also.

CTF for sure. TDM is a close second. I can't stand DM in most cases. Unless it's something like Quake or Doom. =D

My experience with attack and defend maps (such as those in TF2) is that there's a big deadlock with people fighting back and forth at the same place until there's a random immediate surge or a spy sneaks the capture. Too much of the game is spent in a standstill.

CTF and KOTH modes have always been my favorites. Mostly from TFC/TF2. I do enjoy rescue/escorts if I have a group of people I know to play with.

If playing with friends I think TDM is awesome. But I also really liked titan mode from 2142.

I am hooked on King of the Hill in just about any game.  I also tend to like games with capture points - namely Battlefield 1942.

I think it would have to be capture the flag. I love team games more then FFA, and CTF is like TDM but with an extra layer. Therefore, it wins.

I don't know but i think i can explain 1 person is infected by something and the last person to get infected wins or the person who is not infected when time runs out wins.

Why thank you. I don't see how someone could like TDM far more then CTF.

it really matters.  In COD4 I find that everything is boring besides deathmatch where as in halo3  im crazy for objective.

its game by game.
for my main game online game (halo 3): Assault, CTF, 1 sided Territories.  All are pretty fun though.

really it's just you kills someone and they become on your team, but no go back. 
Everything else is changable.  I usually make it so that you dont get any points except for being the last man standing (in customs)

I dont mean it in a negative way, but im just saying infection in halo 3 isnt how you described (not that it sucks).
i didnt make it clear. sort of just typed it fast and threw it out there (there's a couple of typos )

You know, I create a lot of threads like this, I was hoping for a little more meat in your posts, like why you like the game mode, what advantages it has over other game modes...

Infection with friends is actually really fun.
In UT2004, I played Assault for a long time. That's been the most fun I've had in a multiplayer FPS so far.

Deathmatch or team deatchmatch and capture the flag.

Oh, and I'm a sucker for very complicated objectives like in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.
