Show your love and add you GTs...maybe we can form an old farts convention?! 

Played all those and more! The one that really sucked me in and made me late to work was rainbow six 3 on og Xbox. It was the first online shooter I remember playing. No more dragging TVs and Xbox’s for lan. Friends and I would play team survival or survival for hours. Never remember playing death match type games always one life. Then rainbow six Vegas on 360. Introduced tpp corner camping. Cod was cool at first but died to me when they removed hardcore headquarters. Bad company 2 rush and it’s Vietnam expansion kept me busy. Oddly don’t like rush in any other battlefield. For me pubg seems to take everything I loved about those games ( mostly the tactics involved and the punishment for miscues) stripped me to my fist, threw me in a plane and said good luck. As long as there are populated servers I will be trying to eat chicken! I know it’s dying but my friends list already has several blackout converts back to scratch that itch.                                   Gt: mellow chef 33

man... I would love to see a port of Goldeneye with a modern controller.

 

We played that game sooooo much back in high school. I'm still a south paw because of it. Could never unlearn using left thumb to aim right thumb to move.

 

Anyone tried the 360 version of Perfect Dark?

1982 here, first online shooter I got into was Duke Nukem 3D player over the phone line with my mate from school. Whoever hosted had a major advantage so we’d take turns. I remember the phone use to ring before the modem kicked in and started screaming. You’d have to yell out “don’t answer it” ??‍♂️

Haha I remember it so well, we could never get duke nukem to work for some reason. It was usually blood, or shadow warrior. I always wanted to play duke as that was the game which just had such crazy level design it was ground breaking at the time. It was the first game after doom which took it to another level. The humour was great also.

I used to love also all the point and click adventure games (monkey island), the Ultima series (espescially Ultima 7 and Ultima online), syndicate, dune 2, command and conquer, original GTA.

The biggest injustice in the gaming world is that Half Life never continued its franchise. 

 

Very tragic that. I loved HL1 and bought the two expansion packs that went with it. Very good games.

I spent soooo many hours wrecking my brothers on Halo / Goldeneye / Perfect Dark, great great times.

 

I first got into online gaming with the original CoD though, Carentan was near perfection as a CQC map, way over 1000 hours on CoD....

 

Makes me feel so old but I'm only 35 lol.

Yeah it does not translate well unfortunately. Just doesn't feel right with the xbox controller (though that may be the sheer amount of hours I put in on the N64 version).

 

I'd likely avoid Goldeneye if it came out in a similar manner, because revisiting PD almost ruined it for me. I''ll live with the memory thanks.

Yes, this.  I still check headlines once in a while hoping Value pulls the stick out of their a** and just makes 3 already.

Gotta give my love to SOCOM. Best 3rd person series (at least the first few) and what I was really hoping for with PUBG. PUBG has the look, the style, the intriguing game mode, and had the potential, but the gunplay and character movements are worse than a game from the early 2000's. I still can't figure that one out.

 

OMG how could S1 and S2 be missed on here, no games had me addicted like they did ...well up until pubg that is... add me Dead Muppet - im not great but oh well

Oh absolutely it's still worth what it costs for nostalgia, but go into it knowing it will probably not be as you remember.

 

There are issues and such that you just don't notice when you're young and don't know any better lol.

Haha loved the old halo games. My first proper multiplayer fps was caning my brother at medal of honour our underground on the ps1. Gt is the same as my username on here. Not sure if 26 is old enough to make me an old fart quite yet though.

Man I almost forgot how sick Time Splitters was :) also Kirb69 is GT if you wanna play any PUBG. I am not that great at shooting but I play often and am all about some legit squad play.

Have to show some love to Time Crisis with the light gun accessory. Not a great game, but I loved that arcade FPS on my PlayStation back in the day. Lots of Halo after that for me

Gost recon pc was and will always be my favorite competitive shooter and pubg never gave me the shakes like I had back in the day but the feelings pubg give me are just the same. Peeking, strafing, and sniping are all very much played out the same but the sandbox makes the engagements fresh every time.

 

BTW LFG, been flying solo for the past couple of weeks, just add me and invite.
