Raven Shield was my favorite of the bunch. I've yet to play a better online shooter than that.

In Raven Shield, if you got shot it effected your movement or you would be killed. If you got shot twice you were dead. Now that completely changes the mechanics of a FPS. The first thing you do when you enter a map with your team mates is find cover and edge your way around the map. The game was tense, knowing that if you were spotted in the open you were most likely dead.

At the gear selection stage before the game began, it mattered how you kitted yourself out. You could go for full body armour but it would slow you, but allow you to take an extra hit or two. If it was a large open map and you went into battle with an Ouzi then you wouldn't be able to hit anyone more than a 20 meters away. If you had a sniper rifle then you couldn't hit anything close.

In contrast to todays shooters where the half map is filled with Rambo's running about all over the place and the other half with snipers. With the exception to battlefield which actually encourages team work modern FPS's all kinda feel the same to me.
I used to play Ghost Recon and Raven Shield with my buddies all the time via LAN. Great game and one of the last real tactic shooters. It's successor wasn't even half as good as Raven Shield. Now that you mention it BF3 and Rainbow Six are actually quite similar. You get to choose your equipment and it actually matters and you have to play in a team or you won't get things done.

Yeah, and i forgot to mention - NO RESPAWNS!

When you were dead you were dead. If you got killed at the start you had to wait 5,10,15, whatever amount of minutes until round was finished. Being killed was absolutely the worst thing that could happen to you in game.

With modern FPS's death doesn't matter, people just want those kills. People will happily take a death if it means they get a kill or two whilst dying, after all its only a few seconds to respawn.

I am playing too many games at once right now. Borderlands 2, WoW, and Bioshock while trying to keep up with Starcraft and I haven't finished Tomb Raider yet.it is going to be busy weekends where I sit around and do nothing.

I can't do that, I need to play one game at a time.

You playing Wow? I tried playing that after Age of Conan but it seemed so outdated I couldn't get into it.

Yeah I have played wow for awhile now. Graphically it may be considered outdated but I think that's part of the game. I love how it looks and how the world looks. As far as MMO's go it is definitely the only one I put any time into. It is just so established and well done compared to the others.

It is getting old though. It's over half a decade old actually but I still get a lot of enjoyment out of it and they constantly release new things and still put out entire expansions. Lots of people still playing and an endless amount of things to do.

haha, I got back in to WoW a couple of days ago too!
Hadn't played it for some years, hopefully I'll make it to lvl90. How easy it is to max these days?

The xp requirements from 85-90 are pretty steep. The lower levels have been nerfed along the way so it's not that hard to get going.

I currently only have 2 90's but I am not motivated at all to get a third just yet.

Anyone played the new Bioshock? looks amazing and seems to have near perfect reviews all round.
