    There are hundreds of them so i cant list all of them.
    My favorite though has to be the CoD series hands down, I had the best memories of any game in CoD2 with a clan. Good but hard times.

    I honestly dont care for any source based shooters, css was ok but it was just like the first cs with better graphics. Day of defeat seemed a bit slow for my tastes.

    bf:2142 sucked me in for a little while, but it got too unorganised and no one ever listened to the squad leader.

    Best MP shooter for me would have to be CS 1.6, although I hate that game nowadays.

    The only shooter I have spent countless hours on for more than a few months is Counter-Strike (non source). There's no telling how many years I played that game for many hours a day.

    Ive noticed that the people who stick to CS 1.6 are much more hardcore than the people who moved on to CSS :P

    Has to be the Battlefield series for me. Counter-Strike never gave me much. Half-Life 2 with mods perhaps but the BF series are the best at that.

    As this is PC only, my choice would have to go to Counterstrike. Team Fortress 2 is also quite enjoyable.

    a lot of mixed feelings on this im getting from most of you... but i'd probably say it has to be Battlefield 2, even tho my personal favourate is the original Delta Force 1. There isn't anything else like it out there that plays anywhere close to that game, and i feel it kinda revolutionized the tactical shooter / clan base for online shooters today in my opinion.

    Delta Force was the original pc shooter that got me into them so that is one of the best, but as for right now I think Team Fortress 2 is badass. It's really laid back and the graphics help give you that feel to the game, but that's just my opinion.

    Counter-Strike/Css for me. It just is the archetypal multiplayer shooter on which all others are kind of built.

    I'll say Counter-Strike. Just throwing this out there, but I'm 99.9% sure it has the most custom content of any FPS.
    The franchise boasts over 20 000 custom maps, thousands of custom models and skins, and many, many, many mods/gametypes.
    It's also quite old now and still had (last time i checked a few days ago) over 60 000 players for one day on CS:S

    The one I've played the most would probably be RTCW and RTCW:ET, followed by Quake III and CoD,UO,2,4.

    I'm going to go with the Free Multiplayer game only, RTCW:ET.
