Seriously what the hell.

I mean before we had great titles such as UT2004, Quake 3, CS, and plenty of other things, and now the closest thing we have is CS:GO, but that's not very good because Valve refuses to use their endless piles of cash to make better servers that will actually register a good 80% of your shots. In addition, they're pulling the same thing they did with TF2 to the game and are trying to ruin the style and visual appeal of the game and cash out on simple things such as community things.

Hell, skilled games in general today are few and far between. I mean there were also plenty of RTS and stuff back then. There might still be some skilled fighting games, there's like Smash Bros Project M and Skullgirls, but I'm not might of a fighting games guy so I can't talk about if they're good or not from a balance standpoint.

I'm still hoping for a new UT with the new UE4.
If I find UT2004 in a store some day soon I'll buy it - I'm currently in a retro mood anyway. Even started playing Warzone 2100 (latest v. is 3.1.1)...


The last fun shooter I had was Borderlands 2, still playing the latest DLC and all pretty much complete. :)
Time to unleash the arse-kickulator!

I'm a allrounded gamer, so I play just about anything (Pfft, except for COD. At least up until past Modern Warfare 1.)

Quake is one I normally play with my buds and I tend to kick their ass pretty badly but on the subject of CS....Well, I got my ass kicked.

I did not like Borderlands 2 at all. The writing was just abysmal.
I am playing the Serious Sam HD remakes along with Serious Sam 3, and those are pretty damn great.

As for a new UT, Epic likely doesn't know what the hell they're doing anymore and will likely ruin it like they did with UT3.

Yeah, it's like only one-two skill based shooters are released each year. Rest are all about being the first player to start shooting or using no-skill weapons.

What probably annoys me the most is how modern shooters seem to try to prevent the game from being too skill-based. You move so slowly that anyone can easily hit you and you can't out-strafe anyone. You die so quickly with any weapon and all of them are very easy to use. If you can't kill anyone with skill, you can just spam explosives, which act like nukes and kill you from like 10 meters. It's just annoying to play those kind of games. :dry:

I wouldn't honestly mind this if there were a lot of modern skill-based shooters, but when even skill-based series turn into no-skill shooters (Compare Crysis 1 to Crysis 3), it's a problem for me.

The only shooter I really ever play anymore is CS 1.6. There's really no other game that can compare.
eugh

I liked Quake 3 but there are some really talented players out there. It's a bit intimidating to play when everyone is better than you, even if you have played for several years. I played a lot more of Unreal Tournament though. I'm not incredibly good with the double jumping wall kicking that most players do - but I did fairly well. Especially when it wasn't just a massive DM all the time. I liked CTF a lot, especially on ctf_face.

As for CS1.6/Source/GO - de_dust2 and cs_office were the only two maps I played the most of. For Source though, I eventually fell into the surf_ maps. Those were pretty awesome. Some are actually extremely well done too! :)

What I liked was how much detail went into the little things in UT. Like when you max the graphics out, you hear the announcer come on and say "Holy Shit" with that faint echo.
Then there's a whole text-to-speech option for the chat area of the game, and that comes in handy because who's got time to read when you're dodging and shooting and all that.
Then there was the whole built-in music player when you hit F11 that replaces the current map music with what you wanted to play.

And TONS of those maps, songs, and game modes. They added all of those little features after the game looked great, was well-balanced, and made sure there was a lot of maps.

The only multiplayer shooter I play today is Killing Floor, and that's quite old.

I find CS easier than BF4 to get a kill If I'm being honest with you, I hate the ridiculous recoil, It really really irritates me.
