I'm looking for a "decent" multiplayer FPS game that still has people
playing.

By "decent" i mean non-TF2, non-COD4 kiddie multiplayer FPS with
ducking/hopping/knifing grenading.

Battlefield blows chunks. I hate vehicles.

I just want guns and soliders and some kind of realism.

Do a lot of people still play Operation Flashpoint?

What about Ghost Recon?

Stalker: Clear Skies multiplayer a valid option? Stalker #1 had small
maps from what I remember.

I don't want small maps!

Vietcong?

Sometimes I like sniper maps, where it's just you and another couple
players sniping it out. I like the "taking your time" type of gameplay
sometimes. And then I like taking my rifle and hunting down the enemy.

I miss the Rainbow Six days - the Bank level was one of my favorites.

ARMA is the one! Pretty realistic and great MP action.

Try some mods for Battlefield then. The realism mod for BF2 is very good.


The best one I've played in a while is Insurgency for HL:2.

Red Orchestra is the most realistic IMO. No artificial on-screen
crosshair, realistic magazine capacity tracking and reloading. You
can even fix bayonets on the K98 and like guns. It does have some
vehicles though.

I don't know if people still play Operation Flashpoint, but Armed
*** seems to have its loyal fanbase.

I personally like Day of Defeat. It's a bit like Counterstrike, but
less noobs.

Have you ever tried America's Army? I haven't myself, but supposedly
it was developed to be used in the training of America's Armed
Forces. I don't think it has the same level of gloss or player base
of COD4 or BF2, but it is targetted at players that want more realism
which some will automatically consider as "not fun".

The MP of FARCRY might suit ...can take lots of time & thought in a simple
framework.

There is maybe the current all MP QUAKE WARS ... there is a full working
BIG level demo
lots of bouncing around tho...and I for one, can't work out what the Hell
your trying to achieve in it.

dont get me started on operationflashpoint. no game has ever seemed as
amazingly deep and given me such fun as that one.

thanks to their encredible editor and free roaming huge Island
enviroments I had created missions that were in my eyes as good and
enjoyable as any war movie.

up till I got that game I had always thought of war sims beeing kind
of arcardish.

I wont forget when I first fired it up,a enemy tank rolled into town
and I hit it with a couple rockets and imagine my surprise when the
crew jumped out,ran over to a hill, and laid down and started firing
at me with their machine guns and lobbed grenades forcing me to back
off and then......they ran back in their tank and then rolled off
away.

I was like woah.

unfortuatly ,technical issues are not allowing m to play armed
*** . but hopefully armed *** 2 will work better for my
computer.

Armed *** and VBS1/2 without a doubt. They are in active use by many
militarys around the world for training, including the US, UK and Australia.
Don't let the graphics fool you. It may not be cutting edge, although Armed
*** 2 is just around the corner, nothing beats these games for realism
apart from Steel Beasts for tank combat only.

XXXX@XXXXX.COM :

Red Orchestra. Some maps do have tanks though. Still, if you want a more
realisitc game then it is for you. No bunny hopping, you have to use
relistic tactics to win.

so much.

You forgot to tell him about the *** physics and animations in ArmA. Can't
comment on VBS though as I don't pay over a grand for a game.

I have Quake Wars and it is a deep FPS MP game but as you say it is also
confusing. It's not realisitc though so not what he is looking for.

What issues? I have it running fine on Vista64 even. Go to the ArmA
simhq.com forum and they can help you get it running fine.

Arma, that's it! I remember hearing about months ago and wanted to
look into it but never did. Thanks!

Red Orchestra - I never heard of that I'll check it out.

I'll look into that Battlefield mod but I'm not at all too keen on
mods.
