marathon, not FPS but the original postal is fun, halflife and its expansions are still amazing.

I played the hell out of Dark Forces back in the day. Some of its sequels weren't bad either.

marathon used to be my all time favorite game. Guess I never could stay away from bungie after all ;)
A truly wise man can entertain a thought without accepting it. A fool cannot withhold past judgments but instead closes his mine to new possibilities. Someone who wants to innovate simply needs to forget what everyone says isn't possible.

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath :twisted:

Should have been a well known classic forr the Xbox but it had very little advertising.

Best FPS I've ever played is Starseige Tribes.

It's available free for download at any number of locations. There's also a company currently working on creating a browser version.

Came out in '97, but was overshadowed by Half-Life, so a lot of people missed out on it. I still play fairly frequently, over 12 years since it was released!

Blake Stone!

Loved that game. Had a very good atmosphere.

Catacombs, for nostalgia's sake only.

"Star Wars: Republic Commando" is pretty good. As for "Star Wars: Jedi Academy".

Red Fraction 2 and killzone...either one is great to play( I just love the railgun on RF2 because it has a plasma laser rifle which can be shot through walls and it also has xray vision for the scope)
