So what are good FPS from 1993-2003. I think that most the best Fps while be on p.c. except from Goldeneye. I personally like the Solider of fortune game.

I'm partial to NOLF2 (A sword fight in a mobile home caught in a tornado anyone?), but I won't argue with you.

I really liked Unreal back in the day, but I'm guessing it doesn't hold up? I guessing a lot of these don't.

I know he said between '93 and '03 but if we're gonna say UT2003 let's just say 2004. Better version of otherwise the exact same game. In most peoples' opinion anyway.

I didn't even really notice the "to 03" part. I wonder why he chose that year.

I was under the impression that he wanted good singleplayer FPS games. Otherwise I would've listed the Quakes and Battlefields, but most of those multiplayer games either died or got outdone by their sequels

Yeah, I wish I'd played SS2 and NOLF back in the day, I only played them recently and couldn't get past the aging mechanics, but I could see how they were mindblowing once.

I dunno about the original Unreal, but Unreal Tournament holds up wonderfully. Maybe not in the graphics department, but in the holy shit this is fun to play department, which is where it counts.

@AhmadMetallic: You can totally grab some friends to play Quake III and have a fantastic time, though.

Having not played many of these games, DOOM, Quake, and Halo were my only real picks. I can't abide GoldenEye.

Fair enough, both of them are great. I just thought the humor was better in the first, while the second had better set-pieces.

Possibly Quake? That's like the defining shooter of the 90s!

@MikkaQ: For you possibly. For me my memories skew more to Doom and Duke Nukem. Mostly Duke though.

Well it's just what everyone was playing in LANs and tourneys, and they still do today, which is pretty impressive. Most of the jargon associated with shooters came out of the Quake scene. Culturally it's impact was immense.

@MikkaQ: Oh no denial with that. Of course thats where we get like you said many of the jargon words like "frag" from. I'm just one to favor Doom or Duke over Quake.

The original Unreal absolutely holds up, one of the most atmospheric games ever and a great story with no dialogue.

If you're interested in Doom, get the ZDoom sourceport and grab all the WAD files from Steam. Import the files and run the loaders and you've got a totally playable experience that even works great with a controller if you tweak it.

Grab the Final Doom wads as well, as those have the best level designs if you're getting bored/stuck on Doom 2's last few levels. Start with TNT Evilution though, Plutonia is for those quick-saving masochists (still pretty great)

Put down my vote for Marathon Durandal. Pretty good game if you've got half a brain and a willingness to read. Yes, thinking and reading in a classic shooter, how 'bout that? It's also free. Legally.

How did you play them recently? I meant because they're kind of hard to find now, how did you manage it? People cite these games in the industry and I'd love to give them a go.

Yes, very underrated. I've played it twice and multiplayer is good too. I also run /r/daikatana on Reddit.

I think it's important to get to Episode 2 before dismissing it, because in order from best to worst I'd say Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 1 and Episode 4.

Yes, that part was crazy :D I love NOLF 2.

Also, SS2; it's already been mentioned, but why not mention it some more.

If you wanna go old-skool, check out Strife. I think this game was way ahead of its time when it comes to single player fps campaigns considering all of its competitor's goals where just "find keys/unlock exit".

Also your life is not complete unless you played Blood. Shogo is pretty freaking awesome as well despite what everyone says, just make sure you patch the damn thing or expect to be bukkaked with bugs. Goddamn Monolith can make some amazing FPS when it wants to.
